One morning I received an e-mail from Lebanon, from Sandy to be precise, who expressed her desire to get married to Eddie at Mohito Bay, a beach bar on the coastline of Varkiza.
My first thought was that I had to help this couple plan the wedding they had been dreaming of, since they would have to arrange everything from a distance and immediately after I had to learn more about the habits and customs in Lebanese weddings. Since the very first ten minutes of our conversation, I realized from the special way we connected that I wanted to shoot their wedding. I suggested to Sandy that, after the preparations in the Wyndham Grand Hotel, in downtown Athens, it would be a perfect occasion for them and their friends to take a walk in the historic center of Athens, specifically to Anafiotika, where we would also have the opportunity to take some photos before the wedding.
Sandy was over the hills with that idea.
I was certain that we would find ourselves into a beautifully peculiar situation on our way up to Anafiotika, so as to make the couple’s memory of the day more unique.
And of course this is precisely what happened… People all around were cheering, a cat tried to sneak under Sandy’s wedding dress and a lovely gentleman with his accordion was playing the rhythm they danced to in downtown Athens.
