Their 2-day events included a pre-wedding party with Mehndi (the tradition of painting the hands, feet or body with a paste from henna) at Thermes Luxury Villas, the exact place that Navin proposed to Charu. The couple flew a well-known Indian DJ from London to entertain the guests and everybody partied till late.
The Hindu wedding ceremony also took place at Thermes the following day. The poolside wedding setup of bright pink and orange fabrics by Wedding Wish was a colorful feast of the senses. In the evening the party moved to Theros Wave Bar and it included a spectacular fireworks show with percussionists.
For me as a wedding photographer, it’s always a great experience to be part of a Greek island Indian wedding since I love the blend of bright colors with the minimal island architecture under the beautiful Aegean light. Besides, I always enjoy the spirituality and symbolism of Hindu wedding ceremonies, whose foundation is the idea of divine love. Charu and Navin’s wedding was indeed an unforgettable experience!
