Down to Earth Real Wedding in Prespes, Greece
Zacharoula & George, a young Greek couple, choose to celebrate their day a bit differently from the usual Greek weddings. They preferred to turn back to nature and prioritized family and comfort above all. Only flowers at the wedding, were the few bouquets on the table and some peonies on the cake. This simple, yet gorgeous bridal bouquet was also filled with only pink peonies. Groom’s sky blue suit, matched perfectly with the bridal bouquet. They chose to get married in their small and picturesque church, on top of the hill with stunning views of the water and mountains, just big enough for the whole family.
The highlight of their day was the picturesque photoshoot surrounded in almost intact nature. The lake, the old town and remainders of old buildings made this shoot special. The day ended with special dinner in a local traditional and cozy restaurant, a crazy party and the beautiful and dreamy photoshoot under the starry night.
The whole event was captured by Sotiris Tsakanikas
“George and Zacharola, a charming young couple, who you can’t help to fall in love with from the very first moment you meet them. Their intention was to have a sophisticated, simple wedding, away from the usual “must”. And they did it perfectly. Also their proud parents, embraced us and made us feel welcomed from the first minute.
I remember Agios Achilleios, Prespa, from my youth, when I was a student at the University of Patras and we had an educational photographic weekly excursion. This place is so special and different in itself, imagine this wonderful landscape with the company of friends and family… My desire is to always be able to exceed the expectations of my customers. This time the desire became craving … Yes, you can spend a weekend in August with people you meet for the first time and claim that you will never forget them. George and Zacharola thank you for the moments you shared with me.”
