Claire & Scott had chosen one the most prestigious locations in Zakynthos to tie the knot! Cameo Island is usually an idyllic spot to cool down after a long night clubbing in Laganas. However you can rent the entire island for yourself and get married on it!
Walk across the famous bridge with crystal clear water under your feet and you will soon be enveloped in lush surroundings and a maze of paths. Follow the right path and the venue opens up into an incredible natural ampitheatre, secluded away and with vast 40 foot drapes of material seemingly floating in the sea breeze.
It was a scorching hot day and Claire arrived in her air conditioned Mercedes looking cool as a Kumquat!
Claire wanted group shots before the ceremony with her Father and Bridesmaids so I positioned them on the bridge with the island behind and shot away. It’s hard to appreciate the heat whilst sitting in the UK but we had minutes to get these shots before the sun ruined everything!
This is one reason I am always organised on a shoot. I knew where I was going to shoot from and I was set up and ready. 10 minutes in the heat and Claire would have sweated her makeup off! Your photographer should aid your big day, not interrupt it.
Claire got loads of attention from the locals! Everyone was congratulating her and swooning over the dress.
The ceremony itself went like clockwork. Again, things are kept brief in the midday sun and once officiated the coupe could relax and the guest could get on the Mythos!
The water is a huge feature of Cameo Island and is a perfect spot for a swim. Scott had no hesitation, stripping off as soon as he said ‘I do’ and diving head first into the cool Ionian sea. His groomsmen followed (as I looked on jealously) and the ladies settled with taking their shoes off and dipping their toes in the water.
The whole Wedding looked stunning, was well organised, and the guests were on top form despite the heat! A huge congratulations to Claire & Scott and an even bigger thank you for letting me be a part of your day. I have a feeling they will be back to Cameo Island soon as a married couple.
