Last September I had the chance to visit another beautiful Greek island destination with a historic Old Town, an enchanting landscape and wonderful sandy beaches. Corfu is the greenest of the Ionian islands and a popular wedding destination. Many couples opt for a Corfu wedding because the island offers an old Venetian aura as well as a unique natural scenery.
The wonderful and exotic island of Corfu was my meeting point with one of the most congenial, kind and enjoyable couples I had the pleasure of working with: Rachel and Michael. After meeting online at the expiration of 2014, they immediately knew it was meant to be. After Rachel’s parents booked a vacation in Corfu, the couple decided it was the ideal location for their precious matrimony.
Piedra Del Mar was the perfect match for Rachel and Michael’s Corfu wedding. An idyllic scenery accompanied by the soft rustling of the sea and a bright sun that made the golden beach sparkle. The only thing that could be compared with the Ionian sun was Rachel’s big smile while she was getting ready at Villa SeaSun. Through my lens, the bride appeared as the perfect jewel on location, with her exquisite backless Maggie Sottero wedding dress but most importantly having her beloved friends and family with her to share her joyful moments. I could not leave unnoticed the exceptional bouquet Rachel was holding, made by Sapphire & Lace Event Design, a close friend of the bride also attending the wedding.
A few doors down at the same Villa SeaSun, Michael was preparing his dapper white Joseph A. Bank suit, matching in color his beautiful bride, with a navy blue tie perfectly harmonized with the islandic scenery. Everything was on point and ready in the afternoon, organized by the talented Corfu wedding planner Aris Papachristou of Belli Momenti yet, what I remember the most out of this magnificent ceremony was the big pearly smiles on everyone’s glowing faces. This joy, this sharing feeling of happiness is the essence of the matrimony and the biggest reward I get as a photographer.
Rachel and Michael I wish you all the best. May you always smile out of love and happiness. And most importantly, may you fill your house with joy and laughter from new members of your new family, so your babies Atlas and Oscar can have even more reasons to be excited for you!
