I’ve (sadly) never made the journey to Greece, but this gorgeous day captured by Anna Roussos Photography has most definitely moved this beautiful country up on my list of must-sees. Because this is the type of wedding that isn’t just chock-full of heartwarming moments (oh, is it ever), it’s a lesson in all things pretty. See every stunning moment right here in the full gallery.
From Anna Roussos Photography… I don’t know how to describe this wonderful wedding!
When Claire and Robin told me that they were planning to get married in Spetses at the Poseidonion Grand Hotel, I got really exited. This is one of my favorite hotels in Greece. I can photograph every corner of this stylish hotel without ever getting bored! But when they told me that the ceremony would take place in the ancient amphitheater of Spetses, then I started to count the days to their wedding day!
Claire was a stunning bride!! I just loved her very sophisticated, stylish and sexy dress by Jenny Pakcham. Claire made the whole place shine when she appeared on the aisle. And I saw tears in Robin’s eyes as Claire, his bride, was walking towards him with her dad.
The ceremony was beautiful and so peaceful: the old amphitheater was decorated in a lovely fashion with olive trees, lavender flowers and papel picado garlands. All guests were seated on the steps of the old theater and Claire and Robin stood in the middle as they exchanged their vows. After a few refreshing drinks, all the guests walked together with the couple down the hill towards the main road to go to the reception venue: Poseidonion Grand Hotel. What about me? I stole this lovely couple for some photos around the island, while the guests were enjoying the cocktail hour.
What is more romantic than you and your hubby in the horse carriage, both looking so stunning and being just married?? Local people were cheering the newlyweds, wishing them all the happiness, as they were riding though the little streets of Spetses. I think it was a truly unforgettable experience for Claire & Robin.
And I must tell you about the horse carriage driver: he was awesome, with dreadlocks and ray ban sunglasses, a Bob Marley fan for sure. I don’t know if they chose him on purpose or it was just luck, but all I can say is that everything about their wedding day was so cool! No matter how conservative the location and venue were, you could could see Claire’s and Robin’s touch everywhere.
I couldn’t help noticing all the handmade details Claire prepared back at home. Look at this stand with the guests names and lovely personal letters to each of them, which Claire and Robin wrote. Please notice that there were more than 70 guests!!
This shows how everybody invited was so important to them and how Claire and Robin were in turn important to all the guests of the wedding. That’s why the party was so great, full of fun and laughter and this was one of the first times, when I actually got upset when the party was already over. I didn’t notice that it was already nearly 3 am!
Dear Claire and Robin, I can’t thank you enough for your trust! You were so nice and friendly, you made me feel like I’ve known you forever! And I think that’s why you have so many bright people around you, because both of you are so positive! You are lucky to have each other and I wish you all the best of the best!
