In July I got to experience my first ever Destination Wedding on the absolutely incredible island of Santorini, alongside the amazing Rachel of Rachel Lambert Photography. With it being the first time working with Rachel and shooting a full wedding in a different country the pressure was on and I was SO excited!
We travelled around and explored the incredible town with the jaw-dropping blue roofs, absolutely spoilt for choice over where to do their Couple Portraits! On the evening we arrived we met with Rachel and Math and had a little wander as the day's sun was setting, they were absolute naturals. So comfortable in front of the camera (and obviously the stunning backdrop helped!) That evening we went along to a huge traditional Greek party with all their family and were treated like guests: place settings with our names, unlimited wine, delicious Greek food (I ate Tzatziki like it was a Muller Corner!), plate smashing and all sorts of hilarious dancing... We knew then that when it came to the Big Day it was going to be amazing!!
The morning of, I went along with Rachel (photographer) to see Rachel (Bride) and her Bridesmaids in the villa they were getting ready at. With it being so hot over there the wedding was much later on that it would be in the UK so there were no tired faces - just excitable, grinning ones! After a little bit of time there I went through to Math's hotel to photograph him and the boys getting ready; when I arrived some were in the pool, some were sunbathing, some were having their lunch... Oh to be a man and not have to worry about make-up and hair!
The venue itself was indescribably beautiful, I had done a little research before arriving but nothing could have prepared me for how gorgeous Le Ciel was. It was the perfect combination of modern whilst keeping the traditional Greek light, airy open spaces. From start to finish it went without one hiccup and was so incredible that I'm still at a loss for words over it!
I feel so lucky to have been able to be a part of this phenomenal Wedding; I keep re-living it over and over agan. It was complete perfection. Congratulations again Mr and Mrs Bundy ❤︎
Extra special Thank You to Rachel for asking me to shoot with her ❤︎
