From Natascha Alescha
“The shoot took place in September 2021 in Archane, Crete, where we shot at the beautiful boutique hotel Inotropes and the local streets. Fani and Giannis, the bride and groom had their big Greek wedding two weeks before our shoot. Maria and I not only wanted to plan a styled shoot together, me from Germany, her from Crete, to show how well international projects and especially destination weddings work for couples, but also wanted to capture real love and make everything as authentic as possible.
Therefore, we deliberately chose Fani and Giannis. The magic of their own wedding was still clearly noticeable and we wanted to create a special moment for the two. An elopement in which the two could once again confess their love all alone for themselves and enjoy the moment.
The getting ready, the first look, and the dinner setting took place at the boutique hotel Inotropes, the vows at a small chapel in Archanes and the bride and groom shooting in the beautiful old town. During our shoot, we met a little cat that accompanied us for a while and even completed a few photos as a model. “
