Wedding Photographer Mani

“In those days, we finally chose to walk 
 like giants 
 and hold the world in arms 
 grown strong with love
And there may be many things we forget in the days to come,
But this will not be one of them.” 

Brian Andreas

A spellbound Wedding in Mani

Dry, bare and rugged. The land of the prickly pear bristles with forbidding tower houses, stone villages, Byzantine chapels, delightful coves and astonishing caves. Mani.
Overwhelmed with images of authentic Greece, because here in this corner of the Peloponnese, everything is dramatic and bewitching.
Spectacular stone strongholds that thrust from the rocky land, as if to strike  the sky itself. Fortified villages of haunting beauty. Byzantine churches, usually small and humble, nevertheless architectural masterpieces. Their exteriors are of brick and russet stone with beautiful domes and carved marble iconostases.

And there is this indescribable energy of Messa Mani. No place could count as a more ideal backdrop for a very special couple on a very special occasion. Their wedding in Mani.

Sometimes words become most inadequate when you are trying to describe strong personalities, intense emotions and deep bonds. Even more when you want to describe Love.

The ancient Greeks called love “the madness of the gods.”
Shakespeare said, “Love is blind and lovers cannot see.”
Aristotle commented “Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.”

And we? We make stories.

Once upon a time, in a place neither far not near, amidst the whispers of the olive trees, first date, first step and new beginnings…

“ In your light, I learn how to love.”

Welcome to our world of storytelling. Stay tuned.
Not only was it an honour, but also an immense priviledge to be trusted, to have shared, to have witnessed, to have photographed.

Hand in hand, they went, baby girl loved looking at daddy. Winter weather was finally here, but green and blue color was staying back in the landscape. Baby stopped and pointed up in the air.

A flock of birds flew on by, fleetingly, and they smiled down at their little girl beaming up at them. Oh, that little-lady-in-the making! We wondered what the birds thought about us looking from above- below? “Daddy put his hands out, like he was an airplane, and baby followed his lead.

We so wished we could fly, stretch out our arms and run around in circles.

Mommy knelt down on one leg and pulled her little girl next to her and pointed to the sky. “When I was a kid I thought those clouds were made of marshmallows. The cottony, white clouds were billowy, three-dimensional puffs of fluff, stuffed up in various patches as if to decorate the big, blue sky.

And she gave them a smile , just like the sun rises in the morning sky, a precious moment, indeed. They never wanted to lose that instant… As life went on, we saw all three making their way under the marshmallow sky.

For there is love above love

And moments to keep for Aphrodite, for Guiseppe and Micaela, for ever and ever.
It was not so very long ago when we were photographing the wedding of a very special couple. It was like yesterday, in Milos… We can still hear the party going on just around the corner, with the crazy Italians, now fathers of beautiful families, the fire  lamterns on the beach, the candata…
Endless moments that have marked our path in time.
We hold these memories precious, and the bond between us has become stronger with the day. Then came this marshmallow baby, the reflection of brightness and beauty, breathing warmth  light and happiness to their lives, and to our photographs, making them precious and meaningful.
Nothing can be more important  than the connection of these moments to our images, creating lifetime bonds.
Thank you for trusting us with your memories. Thank you for being you. Photography is the means. The aim is the heart.

_ Michael & Eleni _

 

While “once upon a time” may be a great way to start a story in a book, we as wedding photographers find “here in the moment” is the best way to live one. And the best way to picture, frame and capture the emotions of these very special days.
And this is how it all happened, this moment, these moments, being here, like this, in this place, her and him, in this now.

Eleni and Michael

When you are about to describe people, relationships and the feelings that come with them, puting it in words can be very tricky.
But to describe Eleni you only have to ask Michael: “Warm. very loving and fun” – then you only have to look into her eyes
To describe Michael you have to ask Eleni: “Warm and generous”.

Then you only have to be around.

 

_The Wedding in Island Private House_

 
We have felt this special calm and warmth, being so close to them, throughout the days of their wedding in Greece. We feel the same vivid warmth while processing their wedding photos, taking the liberty but also the cheeky satisfaction :-) of creating the first small story of their beautiful images.Island Art and Taste Photographer

Wedding photographer island art and taste // The wedding photography album presentation clip, for a most amazing  couple and  their special wedding day at Island Gallery – Varkiza. We are very enthusiastic for sharing this wedding video clip as it carries loads of Love, Friendship and Warmth. We are certain it will make you smile!

 

 

“How do I love you?

Let me count the ways.

I love you out of the box, so shiny, pink, and new

I love you with every pique, pirouette, tendu

Second skin of my feet, keeper of my sole

Every step I take, your virtues I extol

The lines you draw, the patterns you trace

At the barre and in the center, you fill a sacred space

Adorned with ribbon like a satin-wrapped prize

Hiding within elegance the pain you disguise

I love you in class, in rehearsal, and on stage

Treasure beyond measure, my spirits you raise

My road to ballet is paved with blood, sweat and tears

You are my companion persistent through the years

Vertical suspension, the summit of my desire

You beneath me, the wings beneath my fire

From toil and struggle, the suffering for your sake

Comes dance so joyous, ever-worthy to create”

 

If we could see your last pair of shoes, worn out of dancing, we could still dance through every memory, and give these pictures something to keep in your heart. The very special story of a Greek boy and a Basque girl. Alex and Maite, whose story we yet cannot reveal.
