Wedding in Limeni

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.

Yiannis & Yianna Wedding, The Cats’ Wedding in Symi Island | Wedding Photographer Symi

Two Cats

One up a tree

One under the tree

The cat up a tree is he

The cat under the tree is she

The tree is witch elm, just incidentally.

He takes no notice of she, she takes no notice of he.

He stares at the woolly clouds passing, she stares at the tree.

There’s been a lot written about cats, by Old Possum, Yeats and Company

But not Alfred de Musset or Lord Tennyson or Poe or anybody

Wrote about one cat under, and one cat up, a tree.

God knows why this should be left for me

Except I like cats as cats be

Especially one cat up

And one cat under

A witch elm

Tree.

 

Mid August. High season for a wedding photographer! Approaching the port of Symi, we had the overwhelming feeling of entering a perfectly painted image of a scenic traditional village. We have to admit we remained agape throughout our stay, unable to  resist the superb spectacle of the town stretching its impeccable architecture, where  all of the buildings were listed  on the slopes of the surrounding hills. The port of Symi looked like it might have been photoshoped, the colours that surrounded us a breathtaking sight. Last but not least… No words could describe the beauty of the sea that surrounds the Island where the horizon unfolds until the shores of Turkey.

 

And yes, there was something definitely going on there… This was the Cats’ Wedding!

What a funkier way to start a wedding than a daily boat  cruise around the island. It was an amazing group, there were drinks, good food music and a whole lot of shaking going on… everyone had a ball! Capturing the spirit of the day, we photographed performing acrobatics, on board, underwater and in the air!

 

On the day itself, our  Cats from Amsterdam, started the day in separate houses, as is traditional. The groom and his men prepared themselves in Pedi, and our bride and her party prepared up in the Horio, the higher village. At a set point in the afternoon Yianna left the house in a beautiful flowing white gown created by Maria Konidi.

She boarded a specially decorated boat, a caique, a traditional sponge diving boat, to meet Yannis at the church in Pedi led by musicians. The groom was also accompanied by musicians, a slow walk to the church. Of course there was a lot of “penemata” fοr both… A traditional ritual loyally kept by Yiayia Varvara, the favored Persona Grata of the event.

 

A beautiful ceremony took place, where they exchanged their own personal vows before their families and loved ones.

 

The reception (more a party to remember) was held at Pedi beach hotel overlooking the harbour with its twinkling lights, and the boats coming in and out… Cannot reveal more as  we promise to surprise you with images when the time comes<

 

Sounds perfect to you? It was for them, and also for us, beautiful images,precious moments,inevitable  memories made from the Cats’ wedding, in Simi.

 

And as we are no ordinary wedding photographers… these are no ordinary cats!

So happy to be part of this wedding, to have felt, to have shared to have captured. We thank you for the fun and the trust. We thank you for sharing genuine smiles, but even more we thank you for the sincere friendship. Our wishes will always be with you.

Yes no yes no yes no?   Red blue?    Yes red, no blue? No red, yes no?    In out, up down?   Do don’t, can can’t?

Choices… so many…

For the few who know how to dream  this is

“Once in a Blue Moon, when someone comes along who can teach you the words to a new song,

show you it’s possible,to sing along, even when you can’t carry a tune.

But this only happens,once in a blue moon.

So, tonight when I look up into that sky,

see that full blue moon floating on high,

I’ll be thinking how lucky am I,

to have found you not a second too soon?

We’ll be dancing to a new tune,

down here under the blue moon.”

 

So happy to be part of this wedding, to have felt, to have shared to have captured. We thank you for the generosity and the trust. We thank you for the genuine smiles and concern but even more we thank you for the sincere friendship. Our wishes will always be with you.

Wedding Photography – Vassilis & Elena

So yes. We indeed gave our girl to her most loving blue eyes… The eyes that (come on now, admit it Vasilis)… made her faint!

 

Their wedding took place on the most beautiful day of winter. It was a day when the sun that woke us up in the moorning simply intimidated the strong storm of the previous day! But then again Elenas smile took care of that! It was a day full of love and emotions.
 Not to mention the Tag of War that took place after the wedding .. men vs women ( as the bride did not step on the grooms leg as tradition requires). We shall not reveal (not yet) who won the “war”. We sincerely wish for them to be blessed with all this energy , brightness and happiness for the rest of their life together, along with the love and good wishes of their familiew and friends!
