Destination Wedding: Rebecca & Andy. Cameo Island, Greece

I was so proud to be picked as Rebecca and Andy’s photographer especially because these two are awesome! They are such a funny couple and I had a feeling their friends and family together would make a very entertaining Wedding (and I wasn’t wrong!).

 

The venue was Cameo Island and the weather was absolutely perfect. Their Wedding was slightly later in the season so the temperature drops a (to around 30 degrees) and the crowds of tourist start to thin out.

September / October is a fantastic time to get married in Greece!

 

Rebecca looks gorgeous and was full of beans! Andy was visibly nervous but keeping a brave face and his Groomsmen kept all the spirits high. As Rebecca arrived we grabbed some Bridesmaid shots on the bridge and headed over to the ceremony.

As soon as Andy saw Rebecca his nerves disappeared and there were huge smiles all-round. The ceremony itself was short and sweet and afterwards the whole wedding party hit the Mythos- hard! It was amazing, and I have never been bought so many drinks!

As the sun started to creep towards its bed we got together and took advantage of the gorgeous light that appears everyday in Greece. Cameo is such a perfect venue you can stand anywhere and get nice shots, but the huge banners make an incredible backdrop especially in the evening. Rebecca also had a special request- she wanted her bracelet photographed because her Grandad was engraved on the front and he meant the world to her.

Onto the dinner. I have heard a hundred Wedding speeches but these lot had me in tears! I loved the idea of printing out old embarrassing school photos and passing them around. Everyone was cracking up and it kicked off some great story telling of the Groom’s miss-adventures as a kid.

Rebecca and Andy had booked Cameo for the whole day (another benefit to getting married later in the season). This meant I saw the venue at night for the first time and there was no transfer between locations.

Cameo looked magical at night. The lights highlighted the surrounding cliffs and the gentle lapping of the sea made soothing background noise. The whole place had a powerful atmosphere that you can only get in Greece.

After dancing into the night I was even asked to put the cameras down and join the fun. We drank, danced, and laughed until the sun came up! What a Wedding, one I will never forget.

 

Thank you again to Rebecca & Andy. It was a privilege to meet your incredible family and capture your special day. Enjoy the photos!
