A beautiful wedding photoshoot
in Agreco Farm, Crete – Greece.
I remember the day Sal contacted me. His exact words were “As a photographer myself I must admit that photos are most important for me. Having seen your work and read reviews, I am very impressed.” How beautiful it is when someone appreciates your work! It is perhaps a cliche, but the pictures of your wedding day are the most important investment you make. Everything else fades away with time, but if you have pictures that captured the atmosphere and mood of your day, then you will remember it forever. Sal & Marta is not your regular couple. Sal is Persian, Marta Polish but they both live in Canada. They wanted to get married on the beautiful island of Crete in the Agreco farm, part of the Grecotel hotels & resorts. A picturesque little village of its own. I chatted with Sal on Skype after his inquiry but I got to meet them at the venue, a day before their wedding day. And what an open-hearted couple they are. They welcomed the whole team and explained all the details of how the day would roll out. They would have two wedding ceremonies, a civil wedding and then following a persian wedding. Their guests had travelled from all around the world to be there. It was like a family gathering. The love and emotions their guests showed during both the ceremonies, made me emotional as well! The wedding party was so excited and happy that started dancing right after the persian wedding ceremony finished. The party that followed the reception was so up beat that literally everyone danced…even the cleaning lady, and of course yours truly. Sal and Marta thank you for letting me be part of your special day and with my fluency in Farsi I wish you:” به پای هم پیر شوید ”!!!

The next day we did a photo shoot in the old town of Chania, where Sal & Marta wanted to get lost in the small streets. A question I got asked a lot, was “are they a real couple or models?” Well, I guess the correct answer is both 🙂
So if you’re thinking of getting married in Greece, Crete is one of the best wedding destinations!
