Greek weddings… wow.
This was my first greek wedding & wow was it 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!
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!! We utterly love weddings from different cultures, with a lot of experience in Asian weddings and Jewish weddings, Greek weddings were a new one for us, but a truly wonderful first experience – it’s always a pleasure to learn about a different culture through the lens of a wedding day!
