Maria & Ty

Greek weddings… wow.

This was my first greek wedding & OMG it was awesome, it wasn’t quite a ‘full fat’ greek wedding, as Ty & his family are from South Africa, so it was coined as a ‘Big Fat Greek South African Wedding’ – whatever it was, it was amazing!

Readers will recognize these guys from their engagement photos posted the other week, I knew their wedding was going to be cool from that day, the day when they described greek ceremonies, customs & traditions over gallons of pimms. As I’d never shot a greek wedding before it was ultra important that I knew was going to happen in advance, so I could plan ahead – but no amount of planning truly prepares you!! There was so much going on, but it was mega!

They got married at the Twelve Apostles Greek Orthodox Church in Hertfordshire & then headed over to Fanhams Hall for their reception.

A massive thank you goes out to Maria & Ty, & their family & friends for having me along for the ride! I loved every minute! & would love to shoot a million more greek weddings!!

London’s cool, I don’t get up there enough… Although when I do I usually get lost, so maybe it’s for the best…

Thankfully this time, I had some awesome tour guides, Maria & Tyrone… & they… are… legendary…

Having not met them before their engagement, besides a ultra bleary eyed Sunday morning skype fest, I couldn’t imagine hitting it off better with anyone. We wandered the streets of London for a few hours, frequently stopping for pimm’s breaks for their engagement session.  In fact I think more time was spent in bars than actually shooting – but I got to know them & I’m better off because of it!
