ICON PHOTOGRAPHY MELBOURNE
Address: 19 Thornton Cres, Melbourne VIC 3132, Australia
ICON PHOTOGRAPHY MELBOURNE had the absolute honour and pleasure to photograph one of the most stunning and kind hearted couples, Jamie and Kristy on their amazing wedding day on the magical island of Santorini in Greece. The day started off at the gorgeous bride’s villa, Remezzo, located in the pretty town of Imerovigli, Santorini. Beautiful white buildings adorned with ornate iron cast and azure coloured doors set off the backdrop for the spectacular caldera ocean below us. Kristy and her bridesmaids soaked up the sun as they elegantly modelled with ease, happily enjoying the spectacular scenery.
The next stop was the groom’s. Jamie and his groomsmen were relaxing at the grand Atlantida villas, one kilometre out of the city of Oia, Santorini. The boys delighted in fine cigars and drinks while the resort set the stage for a magnificent location. Divine architecture with pure white archways enhanced with a sensational Aqua filled pool and crystal clear skies was the backdrop for the very classy men. The church was set in the heart of the angelic city of Oia. Jamie waited patiently and excitedly for his bride to be Kristy, as she walked through the dazzling cobblestone laneways with her musicians in tow. Just as Kristy reached the church, Jamie greeted her lovingly and presented her with her beautiful bouquet. The gorgeous couple were blessed and wedded by the orthodox priest and crowned by their loyal matron of honour witnessed by family and friends. The locations for the photographs were breathtaking. Sublime white buildings of gorgeous little churches with blue topped domes set the scene for the dazzling couple to work their magic for the camera. At 8.30pm it was time to make our way to the reception which was set up high in the clouds at the luxurious Santorini Gem located in Pyrgos. Jamie and Kristy made their grand entrance as they were introduced by Con Laz (the MC) to their 66 guests who joyfully welcomed and cheered the happy couple to their seats.
Opulent decor surrounded the beautiful couple as they took to the floor for their first dance as husband and wife, while glittering fireworks lit up the dark sky. The night was filled with an abundance of quality eating, drinking, dancing with the Greek traditional smashing of the plates as everyone partied on until the early hours of the morning. Congratulations Jamie and Kristy on your amazing wedding day, thank you for having ICON PHOTOGRAPHY MELBOURNE in Santorini Greece. Words truly cannot describe how sublime the whole day and night transformed into the most spectacular experience for all! We thank you for having us be a part of this special time in your lives and we wish you everlasting happiness and love!!!
Nowadays, the monastery is fully operational where inside 10 nuns are living and praying.
It was a beautiful 35 degree afternoon in the southern part of Greece with some seriously happy parents. The Priest started off with the godparents at the front door by saying a few prayers to the child and guided the godparents on their duties for little Georgia. The godparents accepted their responsibilities and continued onto completing the ceremony.
The temperature inside the church would have reached at least 50 degrees, i was absolutely drenched. Shooting in this heat was a challenge on its own. The church was filled with over 200 people which didn’t make the job any easier but the atmosphere was beautiful. The stunning intricate detail that surrounded us easily helped me to shift my attention away from the heat.
Once the ceremony finished, we went onto the reception. Set in the magnificent outdoor venue of Ktima Tritsimpida, such a gorgeous location! The setting was filled with beautiful decor of candles, drapery and even a little church!
The party continued into the early hours of the morning with plenty of eating, drinking and dancing on the tables.
Congratulations to the parents and godparents on the Christening of Georgia, may she be blessed with all the love and happiness in the world!
Thank you for having ICON PHOTOGRAPHY MELBOURNE in Greece to be a part of this special day.
