Christina + Max

A Greek Wedding with a Perfect Venue and a Self Designed Wedding Dress

Christina and Max had two weddings; the first one took place in Paris, the second one in Greece. When the photographers Hanni & Marcus contacted me about these weddings, Hanni wrote “Christina designed both wedding dresses herself. She’s not a designer – but I think she should consider this career choice.”. Well, that pretty much sums up what I felt when I actually saw the dress! The post today focuses on their wedding in Greece; needless to say the backdrop is perfect, and this beautiful couple found the perfect venue to enjoy the scenery.

The wedding took place in Thassos, an island located in the North part of Greece, on August 17, in the church village, Sotiros. The bride is half Greek which is why this couple decided to have their wedding in Greece despite the fact they’re living in Qatar. Here’s more about their choice to get married n Greece and how long distance planning worked for them:
This is where my mother’s family is from and where I got to spend all my summers until now. Maxence, my now husband, has also fallen for the place and for the last 5 years has been more than happy to spend our summer vacations in my family home.
Leaving and working in Qatar, I can say that this was quite a challenge to organize a wedding in an other country! We had to rely on friends and family that leave in Greece to help us. We chose both the place and the catering company only based on pictures and phone calls. We were really relieved when we actually saw the venue in July, it was indeed a great place.
It can seem to much of a difficulty to put us through, but a wedding, when you decide to organize one, is about what is meaningful to one another. After hours of brainstorming it was obvious that we really wanted a wedding in Greece.

Name one thing you regret…

Letting stress and panic overwhelm us when in the end you always find a suiting solution for everything, yes even for this huge problem you feel at the time will make you cancel the whole thing!

… And one thing you’re really happy about/ proud of.

Being able to mix successfully French and Greek people who do not speak any common language and do not share the same party habits. You need to trust your guests, and when your part is done as a host there is no reason to worry about people having fun. They will!

The word of the photographers.

The (second) wedding in Greece blew us away. Christina is half-Greek and they decided to get married on the island of Thassos where part of her family lives.
They found the coolest location and it was just amazing to see how all their friend came from all over the world and helped with everything. Christina and Max made us feel like part of the family. And we’re so thankful for their trust because we shot our first wedding videos for them.

Spanish Multicolor Wedding in a Nature Park

The cold days are coming, but I still have a couple of weddings from this Summer to warm you! Today especially, as I offer you an escape to Spain with this multicolor wedding. It took place in a nature park (a dream venue!) and all those colors created a relaxed and friendly atmosphere for the wedding diner. The bride’s dress was her mother’s and then her sister’s, and I really love her flower crown! Photography by Sara Lobla.

The wedding took place on August, 31, in a nature park, Valle de Iruelas, Ávila, Spain. Here’s about the bride’s dress.

I wore the dress my mother was wearing on her own wedding, which was also my sister’s wedding dress when she got married in Las Vegas… now it has become a family tradition!!!

For my part was a wedding full of magic, where I spent the  whole weekend, from Friday to Sunday, there with them. Sharing every moment is what made me able to make these photographs.

Breathtaking Venue in the Italian Mountains with a View on the Sea

The first time I published something from Stina, I said that she was my recent photographer crush. Well, this crush actually turned into a love story, that doesn’t seem to be ending any time soon. Once again, I was preparing this post with a lump in my throat: every part of this wedding is amazing, every picture is perfect. Actually, venue makes a lot; I wouldn’t say that it’s the only thing that matters, but to me it’s really the soul of a wedding. Here, not only is there a breathtaking venue, but all the details and the setting are really perfect! And this dinner table… w.o.w. Photography: Stina Kase.

The wedding took place in August last year at the Amalfi coast in Italy. Everything was thought and realized by the bride herself, who wanted to mix rustic details and a modern setting. Well, it’s worked!

The word of the photographer.
For me this wedding was extraordinary – something really different. I was inspired by the breathtaking nature & all the small details at the wedding (I am a detail freak!).
In a way my dream came true – I could take pictures at such place!
