Chosen Greece for your special day? Here are just ten top tips to help you before you start wedding planning!

Venue choice – Greece has great weather, fantastic views, so much history and of course there is an almost endless choice of places to choose from. Mainland venues or Island venues, this is where you need to start, bearing in mind, the more popular the Island, the more pricey the wedding will be. If you are planning a destination wedding on a budget, choose an Island a little less well known, not one where the A listers hang out, there are in fact about 200 inhabited Islands in Greece, so there are plenty of options

Type of venue – Are you thinking of a beach wedding? It sounds so romantic, and what great photos, but you must consider a couple of things. Firstly, most beaches in Greece are not privately owned, meaning that there will be other people aro…

Top 3 reasons why you should renew your vows

There is a growing trend for couples who are already married to make a new commitment to each other and renew their vows, often spending much more on their vow renewal ceremony than their original wedding!

Arranged weddings How many couples have had the organisation of their wedding taken out of their hands by well-meaning parents who are often footing the bill?

The Importance of an Engagement Shoot

   Engagement sessions are one of my favourite things to photograph. It's a great opportunity to get to know my couples before their wedding and see how they interact with each other. A lot of people don't feel comfortable being photographed. This gives them an idea of how I work and puts them at ease before the most important day of their lives! Reasons I think engagement shoots are great and a must have....  The more time you spend with your photographer the more comfortable you'll be in front of the lens. A relaxed and happy couple make for much nicer natural images of the two of you. Remember, your photographer will be with you for HOURS on your wedding day capturing all those intimate moments and preserving one of the most emotional days of your life.

Destination Spain!

Looking for a destination wedding location? Look no further than Spain, the largely undiscovered newest trend for sunshine elopements, vow renewals and wedding ceremonies. Where else can you find palm tree lined beaches, romantic Moorish castles, olive groves stretching beyond the horizon, world class nightlife and free tapas all in one country?! Read our hot tips for getting married in Spain. Dig out your documents The truth is that even if you have Spanish residency, it is very difficult to get married in Spain. Whether you contract a Civil Marriage or a Religious Marriage, the necessary documents are similar, all must be originals and all must be officially translated into Spanish. So either, you can start digging out your birth certificate, passport, residency papers, registration with the town hall, certificate of marital status, certificate of no impediment a healthy dose of patience and a DNA sample (just kidding about the sample)….. or you can do things the easy way!
