Cosmopolitan wedding destination in GreeceCorfu Town Wedding InspirationKérkira, Old Town, Corfu Island, Greece

An elegant late autumn inspirational Corfu Town wedding shoot on the stunning Greek Island of Corfu organised by Corfu Wedding Planners that you would quite easily mistake as the Italian riviera due to the strong influence of the Venetians who for four plus centuries controlled the island.

The compact and strollable Old Town with its Venetian fortresses, museums and an abundance of Venetian architecture is a Protected UNESCO heritage site making it the perfect backdrop for this inspirational shoot and any couple looking for an elegant wedding destination in Europe.

Corfu Town, Kérkira in Greek was the location chosen for the shoot and is the capital of Corfu, situated in the Ionian Sea and is considered one of the most cosmopolitan and elegant lifestyle cities in Greece.

The team of local and athenian venders created a colourful palette in keeping with the season under the organisational skills of Lorraine Young a talented wedding planner based on the island.

Greece and the numerous amount of islands provide perhaps the most diverse culture, architecture and backgrounds in all of Europe and whilst I have the good fortune to have photographed much, I am once again astounded by Corfu its beauty and cosmopolitan charm.

Leaving Corfu Island was hard but in the knowledge that I have made many new friends and given my home is only a few short steps away in kefalonia, another stunning island situated also in the Ionian Sea, I be visiting again for both fun weddings and relaxing with family this coming summer.

A very warm thank you to all those involved for the new friendship, energy, good humour and sharing their creative talent during my stay in Corfu.

Enchanted Romantic Rose Garden Laveda Bridal in RomeRome

It is both exciting and a real delight when I am asked to shoot for a talented wedding dress designer and for Laveda Bridal it was no exception.  I just love their stylish and timeless designs, so I turned to my Italian good friend Francesca Resciniti at Dream Weddings, based in Rome, to orcehestrate and bring her romantic, Italian style and influence to the shoot.  Both Francesca “a destination wedding planner in Rome” and her talented “destination wedding & engagement photographer” husband, Daniel Pierangeli are some of my closest and treasured friends for many years now,  starting in the industry together and I again thank them both for all their generous support.

Our inspiration was to find a Romantic Garden that had seasonal wild roses and it wasn’t long before we found such a delightful and enchanting Rose Garden situated on the outskirts of Rome as a backdrop for our bridal shoot in Italy.

Shooting this set of editorial images, utilising the softness and luxury associated with film wedding photography added a dreamy, timeless look to the styled shoot which fitted perfectly with our romantic inspiration and of course wedding in Italy in general.

Priscilla & VanniAlemagou Beach WeddingMykonos Island

Alemagou Beach Wedding during a stunning Mykonos sunset is about as good as it gets, as far as Destination weddings in Greece goes.   Priscilla & Vanni a loving couple living in Milan, chose the Alemagou Beach Restaurant for its privacy and this unique beach wedding experience, for their guests from all over the world.

Documenting very private weddings for clients, often means, by request their personal images are not published, thus I am only sharing some of the many details photographed, during the wedding event on my blog as an example of this amazing wedding venue in Mykonos.

Wedding Planner Vanessa from DeplanV, based in Athens,  organised an  amazing wedding event, decorating the venue both internally and externally.  Soon I will be posting more images of this venue taken later in the evening, providing another dramatic look at this venue.

Patricia & MarkRehearsal Dinner at the Bauers PalazzoVenice Bauers Grundwald Palazzo Hotel

Rehearsal Wedding Dinner at the Bauers Palazzo, organised by Lindsey from Venice Events for the lovely Patricia & Mark.

Ahead of Patricia & Mark’s wedding in Venice, at the Baures Palazzo, guests enjoyed their hospitality in the amazing Venice by the Grand canal.  Venice is unique, given the logistics of travelling everywhere by water or on foot, thus everything, happens in a more relaxed way and welcome dinners really help everyone unwind after a long trip, often from many locations around the world and get to know each other before any wedding reception, highly recommended concept.

Welcome rehearsal dinners help complete the full destination wedding story, something I always try to cover as one chapter in the bigger love story, created typically over two or three days whilst on location. Being a regular to Venice streets over the last ten years, it always has the magical, romantic feel of mystery and luxury in all conditions, throughout the year, hosting so many very Italian historical events that only Venetians know how. Without doubt, one of my most favourite cities in the world and love being a wedding photographer in venice.
