I got the phone call from New York on a cold winter's day in London. "Are you free to shoot our wedding in Santorini on the 16th of June Yanni said", I went to look at my calendar thinking: I hope I am free, I would love to shoot another wedding in breathtaking Santorini!!
I didn't speak to Milena or Yanni again after the initial phone call, then I met them both in Santorini on their wedding day. I was travelling on my own without another videographer or assistant, Just me, my 2 cameras and camera bag with all my goodies. I was so anxious to start filming I went to find Milena 2 Hours before I was expected and even though I was so early from the first moment I met beautiful Milena she made me feel welcome, she was warm and hospitable, which is always a good trait in Brides as you always get a good end result, the warmth from her personality shines throughout the film, as soon as you add Yanni into the mix they make the perfect combination! Yanni Makes Milena Laugh! The wedding preparations were held in Above Blue Suites and the Wedding Reception was held at Le Maltese Estate Villa. Milena wore a beautiful strapless dress by Pronovias and shoes by Manolo Blahnik. Yanni wore a suit by Giorgio Armani and Hugo Boss Shoes. On this wedding I was lucky enough to meet and work along side the talented Photographer Vangelis Beltzenitis who is a pro when it comes to Cycladic weddings, he understands the light and conditions perfectly, such a nice guy and a pleasure to get to know, I hope our paths cross again soon i enjoyed working with him immensely.
The whole wedding was put together by Santorini based wedding planner Shirley Chiarolanzio and her team of Santorini Wedding Planners.
This is a small Highlights Clip we put together before the full finished version is ready.
