When I spoke with Giota for the first time on skype about her wedding with Omar in Folegandros, I got really excited! I was so glad when she asked me to be their photographer, because I had heard so much about this beautiful Cyclades island and now I had the opportunity to be there and shoot a wonderful wedding. The idea that the bride and groom would walk all the way to the Panagia church of Folegandros, composed an amazing image in my mind… a fairytale. The day before the wedding, friends and relatives of the couple who came from all over the world, since Giota and Omar live in Los Angeles, walked around the chora of Folegandros and ended up at the beautiful central square, eating and dancing all together at the picturesque, traditional tavernas of the island. The great atmosphere created by the lights of the tavernas, along with good wine, set a wonderful night before the wedding.
Giota and Omar got dressed at the magnificent ANEMI HOTEL, where the reception also took place.
The wedding took place at the Panagia church and everyone walked the twenty-minute way up the cobbled path. The couple was accompanied by musicians playing traditional instruments… the images were trully wonderful and I feel very lucky that I had the chance to live such an experience… Omar, Giota thank you very much for your trust and your fantastic hospitality. I wish you all the best in your life and may you always be so much in love.
