Top Bridal Beauty Tips Every Bride Should Know

Bridal Beauty DOs

Visit your beautician so she/he can customize the perfect face treatments and skincare products tailored for your own special needs. A few months before the wedding is the right time for facials and chemical peels. If – worse case scenario – something goes wrong, you have time to restore it!

Don’t change your beauty regime completely 3 month before the wedding. It’s not the right time for experimenting! You don’t want to have a risk of breaking out before the big day, do you?

Grow your eyebrows and get in touch with a brow specialist to create the ideal brow shape for you. You should try for a new shape at least 4 months before the wedding.

Maintain a healthy lifestyle, drink plenty of water, consume more fruits and vegetables so you stay hydrated and healthy. Bridal beauty needs that!

Exfoliate your skin and do regularly face masks, so you maintain a hydrated and healthy looking skin. But, don’t overdo it. You don’t want to risk a break out!

If you suffer from dark circles and puffy eyes, you can try cold slices of cucumber for 15’ every night. Cucumber hydrates the area and the cool temperature increases blood microcirculation and helps the eyes look more relaxed.

Apply sunscreen every day to avoid any discoloration or hyper-pigmentation on your skin. There are many non-comedogenic sunscreens in the market to stay out of the way of any unneeded break-outs!

Bridal Beauty DON’Ts

If you and your make-up artist have agreed to put artificial eyelashes on the wedding, avoid doing permanent lash lift or putting semi-permanent lash extensions. Lash lift creates a shape on your lashes that makes the artificial lashes look odd and it is recommended not to use artificial lashes on lash extensions.

Don’t stress too much. Try to rest, do things that help you feel relaxed and happy. Stress is not a good advisor and affects your bridal beauty!

Don’t overdo it with suntanning or solarium. UV rays dehydrate the skin and too-much tanning won’t result to that classy bride you where dreaming of!

Don’t eat too much salt the week before the wedding. Since sodium holds 50 times its weight in water, cutting back can help you feel way less bloated the week of your wedding.

Christmas Spirit

Athens is one of the top European choices to get into the Christmas Spirit from the middle of November. The festive vibes are all over the city and most people are attending countless Christmas celebrations, family events and corporate parties. Even now that we are counting days before Christmas Eve there are so many galas, winter weddings and social events to attend that is quite difficult to squezze everything into the calendar.  Are you ready for the holidays? Ho Ho Ho!

Raise your glasses, cheers for being so much into the Christmas Spirit. We are ready for all the Christmas carols, desserts and parties. Wishing you Merry & Bright Christmas!

 

Edgy Xmas Party  Downtown Athens

Organizing the Xmas party for one of the leading companies in our country was definitely a huge challenge. Management’s anthropocentric attitude gave us the idea for the “OPAP’s bright and shiny stars” concept. Employees had the chance to put their own star on their wall of fame, meet and greet on the photobooth and of course have some fun listening to the music of the Greek singer Stelios Rokkos and enjoy the drum show. It was definately a night to remember.

Christmas Candyland

Christmas are about desserts too, and we could not help it but prepare a kids corporate party at Athenaeum InterContinental Athens, full of candies and small treats! Kids made cupcakes, prepared their xmas ornaments and had a lot of fun climbing up our candy tower and going around Candyland’ s places with the little train. Of course everyone got to enjoy the candy floss and chocolate fountain and the huge dessert table prepared for all. It was definitely a Sweet & Merry Christmas for everyone!

Christmas with the Nutcracker

Counting days before Christmas and we are so happy for this corporate party we designed a few days ago for a client. Nutcrackers, ballerinas and warm Bavarian houses formed the stage for a unique celebration. A big floral watch reminded us that the year is soon to change.

A post shared by Luxury Wedding Planner Greece (@rockpaperscissorsevents) on

 

Anybody can launch an event… or so they say.

Because only our level of expertise, experience and excellent project management can ensure that your dream scenario has exactly the “look and feel” that you wanted, saving you precious time and money.

We are here for those who have limited time, who are not willing to stress over finding a fresh and creative idea for their event. We are here for those who wish to have the party of their dreams and enjoy it to the full!

Let us iron out all the little details, let us take care of business!

We will be there from the start – the creative process behind selecting the right concept, the time planning and the correct combination from our portfolio of partners – until the very day, when we will ensure that everything goes according to plan. Our services are not a luxury, especially considering a social event like your marriage or the baptism of your child.

From our very first meeting, rest assured that the value of our services will be obvious.

See for yourselves!

Why Us?

Especially on the subject of a wedding, a commonly expressed doubt is: “why do I really need a wedding planner?” It is a simple question and it can be answered with a simple…question. Each wedding is a once in a lifetime event and therefore an extremely important occasion, so why distract yourself from enjoying it, by trying to do it all by yourself?

Yes, you can hire professionals to take care of the photos and the flowers, the invitations and the decorations, the catering and so on, but what about a professional who will help you with the organization and coordination of all those together?

 

The Truth about Wedding Planning

Wedding planning is a full-time 8 hour job and it has been calculated that at least 200 to 250 man-hours go into each one in total. This means a lot of weekends and free time off your weekday’s personal time! A bride-to-be will have to spend at least 11 hours a week just to try and organize everything for the big day! That is half a day, each week, for weeks on end! Trusting us, allows you to cut out the hard work and just enjoy the process!

We will be there not only as a helping hand with the organization and coordination but will relieve you from this time-chase to get right even the minimal detail.

Many believe that the cost of a wedding planner can be prohibitory. Far from it, contacting an experienced professional is the only surefire way to remain on budget, for whichever kind of business. A wedding is no different. We will use our portfolio of contacts, our wealth of experience and advise you, help you negotiate better deals and treat your budget as if our own, to ensure that you not only enjoy a beautiful occasion, but also avoid overspending. We ensure you will get full value for each one of your euro!

Fact: 80% of our customers do not live in Greece.

So we can understand the stress and anxiety for you of organizing a destination wedding. We are there for you through all means (Fb, viber, whatsapp, skype,  you name it) so to ensure that you can reach us within 24 hours and always feel of course that you are in the experts’ hands.

You have spent months putting it all together and we will be the watchful eye to ensure all goes smoothly when you will be busy at the altar.

Unique Design is Everything

As you can see in this Elegant Greek Folk Wedding in Antiparos, design and style go hand by hand, into all small details of your special day. The bride being half Greek, always wanted to get married in Greece. So getting married in Antiparos at her brother’s island house, surrounded by friends and family, felt the right thing to do. They also wanted to make a holiday out of it for their guests travelling all the way and what can be better than a Greek-centered theme? They had a handful of surprises for their guests and wanted to give them a hint of what lays ahead for their wedding celebrations.

Fresh fruits and herbs, Greek traditional favors and a wedding reception full of Greek colors & tastes was waiting all friends and family members. And everyone had allready got into the mood thanks to all the design of the printed stationary of the wedding. Don’t you agree?

Natural, elegant with elements of naivety and a little bit influenced of the Greek folk tradition were some of the characteristics that made this wedding styling so unique. The flowers were all white and green with island herbs and foliage mixed in and the dinnerware was blue and white. Greek elements included the traditional Greek folk band procession as the bridal entrance and Tamata favors (a religious votive offering depicting hearts and Greek wedding crowns which can be used to pray for the happy couple or as pray for yourself for luck in love). You can see that once you feel sure about your wedding suite then you can have all sorts of adaptations afterwards in menus, seating cards, welcome signs and so on and so forth…

Flowers are a safe bet!

If you’re are having a Spring wedding, let flowers inspire you! If you have a preferred flower or a deep love for foliage, then go with this as your theme. Have a look at this Colorful Spring Wedding  and get a fresh idea for your wedding invitations & printables. As you can see in this blooming wedding at Island art and Taste in the Athenian Riviera, the flowers guided us throughout the wedding invitations suite and we even created a small guide with explanations of different flowers and their meanings.

Of course you can always send invitation via webmail but we suggest you leave this only for your save the date. After all, a well-designed invitation is always a keepsake to those who truly love you and a loving memory of one of the most important day of your lives, your wedding day.

Allow your wedding planner and graphic designer to work on a unique wedding theme for you and give your guests the surprise of something out of the ordinary with your personalized wedding printables & invitations.

Dare to be bold!

Just say yes to that idea you can not get out of your head. Dare to be bold! It’s your wedding and you can try anything you want. We encourage our couples to trust their dreams. Together we go beyond classic and dare to try edgy concepts. It’s in our nature to fall in love immediately with wedding themes that creativity faces no limitations.

This Wedding in Andros had a rustic & elegant theme that left everyone speechless. Starting from the breathtaking view both to the sea and to green covered mountains. The wedding theme followed the natural colors of the stone built house and greenery that surrounded it. Tones of orange and touch of wood along with ceramics kept the rustic feeling but with a very modern touch due to the vellum we used to wrap the invitations.

Decoration of course later matched the invitation design and most of the times if done the right way, it can inspire the decoration and design of your wedding. As flowers were natural in the background, we also used wooden signs, since it was needless to repeat the flower pattern, for road and welcome signs, as well as table numbers.

Why Wedding Invitations are a must-have

The short answer is that the wedding invitations make it official and set the tone for the entire event.

The day your guests receive your invitation in the mail, they start to envision the wedding day. They start to make plans and prepare – from their side – for your big day. So make it as personal and special as your wedding. A rock wedding should have a rock invitation suite but a romantic wedding should go for a classic invitation.

If you are planning a destination wedding with a weekend filled with activities, brunches, or cocktail parties with your guests, the invitation will be their map & guide for the entire weekend. That envelop should include all the important information about: guidelines to book travels, how to pack accordingly, what activities are in the schedule,  or/and any kind of sensitive information regarding the wedding etiquette. In some cases, the couple may wish to exclude social media sharing from their event or may want to stress out which #hashtags to use in your posts.

With simple words, invitations reflect the values & vibes of the couple!

The wedding invitation should reflect who you are as a new soon-to-be-married-couple. In my professional opinion, digital invitations lack of character and look less official. On the other hand, printed wedding invitations declare the significance of the event.  That been said, working with a professional stationery designer it’s a must-do process for a successful wedding experience.

Pros know how to spread your message the right way. They can assist you pick the perfect design, style, words, colors and even make all ends meet just in the right price. Only pros will help you get the best result without breaking the bank.

And at the end of the day, invitations are kept as a loving memoir from your wedding. For many this is a big thing! Especially for family members or dear friends that can not attend your wedding ceremony. Invitations are an essential part of wedding planning because they gather everything written on paper and keep the event’s flow running smoothly.

To wrap it up, when planning costs are on the table, wedding invitations should be part of the original budget. A wedding starts when guests get your invitation. There is nothing like that moment where the big news is announced, printed, professionally designed, and beautifully packed into a fine envelope with a calligraphy address bar.

The Ultimate Ingredients For the Perfect Wedding Invitations

Other Uses of Your Design

OK since you paid your graphics designer, so let’s now see in what ways you can get the most out of this cooperation. First and foremost you can use your designer for the header of your website and any other parts that has to do with the design of a new modern website yet such as your customized logo. Then of course you can use him/her on various little details, like customizing your favors, tags in your chairs, make a personalized cake topper, stickers, menus and many more ideas that otherwise you would have to get yourself one more from the store.

Wedding Muse – if there is one- is definitely in the details! And by having a graphics designer by your side, along with your wedding planner’s guidance you can have everyone talking about your wedding for the years to come. Think about this investment and the impact it will later have!

Intimate Romantic Wedding in Santorini

An intimate romantic wedding in Santorini can be spectacular with the right combinations. In this wedding we let soft pink shades dance along with blue hues and the result was amazing.

Lots of blog posts have been made about Santorini island and hundreds of weddings take place there every year. And this is only natural, since this unique island has a different aura as one of our most famous poets Odysseas Elytis wrote. Furthermore, lots of books and poems have been also written for its sunsets, numerous articles on its volcanic energy. No wonder that so many of our couples chose this island to exchange vows of love and commitment to each other.

The flowers at this wedding in Santorini were magical… Find the right flowers and colors for your wedding and you will have an unforgettable wedding day.

In particular, this one was an intimate and emotional wedding with 24 guests and the couple cared for each one of them personally. Ceremony was held outside with the magnificent view Santorini Gem venue, and a tea ceremony was also performed to honour their culture. The bride’s fairy tale dress was designed by a true modern romantic, Otilia Brailoiu, that gave our bride, a unique flow in her every move.

With respect to the couple’s personal taste we designed a theme with an Aegean character. The late summer season was a true inspiration to the bride and she went for warmer shades of orange, red and blues along with lush greenery and variety of wildflowers. Dinner was held inside and warm wishes set the right feeling for the party after. Their first dance under a sky of string lights was one we will always remember as one of the most romantic ones.

Weddings in Mykonos

What ever happens in Mykonos, stay in Mykonos… right? Well, destination weddings in Mykonos stay with the guests & the couple forever! Everything is magical in Mykonos. Is like living into a postcard from Greece.

Rock Paper Scissors Events Agency has a long history of magnificent custom made weddings in Mykonos. And now that we are visiting (again) the Island of Winds (aka Mykonos) we are in the mood to look back at our beloved couples that trusted us to plan & design their wedding.

It was an amazing party on the beach, next to the blue Aegean waters with two souls in love! All weddings inevitably start with a “yes”! In this case, the proposal was made underwater and Tiffany’s blue color of the magic box was definitely a keeper to this wedding’s concept.

That is the spirit of a wedding in Mykonos! The wedding’s motto was “In the deep waters”!

Destination Weddings in Mykonos
Destination Weddings in Mykonos

The wedding took place in the mythical for the crazy parties and celebrations, Greek island of Mykonos. Couple chose Panormos Beach Restaurant for the pre wedding party and Solymar Mykonos for their wedding’s reception.

Invitations were unique because they had the feeling of reading them through a viewmaster and where designed by We design agency.

Hawaian leis necklaces and decoration was once again handled by our team. Signs like «shoes optional» and custom surf board that was used as the wedding’s guestbook, was illustrated by the talented Mr. Manolis Iliopoulos of Imaginary Rooms.

Vivid colors and deep emotions were captured by the lens of Fiorello photography where she also coordinated a custom photo booth. Video credits go to Ariadne Papanastasiou.

We are grateful to this couple that followed our lead to this deep dive in such clear waters. They followed our advices from their engagement shooting up to their wedding’s website.

Wedding Inspiration in Mykonos

Get inspired by this destination wedding in Mykonos!

The team of Rock Paper Scissors created an inspirational styled shoot in Mykonos.  The theme was a chic destination wedding in Mykonos. The styled shoot took place at the Rocabella Hotel in Mykonos. Needless to say that this stunning venue is set on a breathtaking location, overlooking the bay of Mykonos.

The colorful tabletop was adorned with copper details and vibrant handpicked blooms: peonies, garden roses, delphinium and dahlias are just some of the beautiful flowers that were used for the beautiful floral arrangements.

The wedding theme had so many custom made decorative details such as the handwritten Pablo Neruda poem backdrop at the ceremony. As wedding favors we designed customized tambourines wedding favors. The bar stand had blue-hued signature cocktails and the indigo wedding stationery had a twist of  copper foil. Admire this romantic wedding style shoot in Mykonos.

All weddings must have something old or vintage, right? What’s better than a Vintage Prosecco Bar Van at your wedding?

It has style and can keep your guests happy! Bring the cocktail hour one step closer to the beginning of your wedding celebrations. You can always have and your signature cocktails, later during the party.

Put yourself into your guest’s shoes. Especially when, at destination weddings, most of the guests have traveled from all over the world to honor your wedding. In Greece, summertime is remarkable hot and arriving at the wedding reception area during early afternoon hours, doesn’t make it any cooler. Having a Prosecco Bar Van, full of cold refreshments and drinks will make your guests feel welcome and grateful.

We have a first-hand experience on how much guests are happy to see a cold glass of wine ready to be served while waiting for the married couple to arrive. In this astonishing wedding in Antiparos, the wine glasses mingle with the smiling guests within minutes.

The couple chose Bubble Couple Prosecco Van for their destination wedding in Greece. They wanted to serve White and Rose Prosecco and offer Prosecco-based cocktails to everyone. Their decision was wise because even before the end of the wedding celebration, the Prosecco Bar Van became the star of the night!

The couple decided to get married in Antiparos, surrounded by friends and family. They also wanted to make a holiday out of it for their guests traveling all the way and what can be better than the Greek islands in the summer? Natural, elegant with elements of naivety and a little bit influenced by the Greek folk tradition were some of the characteristics that made this wedding so unique. Enjoy this elegant wedding in Antiparos and get inspired!

A Prosecco Bar Van with A Tropical Vibes Twist

Plan your destination wedding in Greece with a hot tropical vibes theme. See how in this breathtaking styled wedding shoot in Athens.

It was still hot summer in Greece when we joined forces with Stephanie Brauer and Ushna Khan photography during their short visit in Greece, to create this unique styled shoot. Our initial mood board had tropical vibes but we wanted to infuse extra spicy and modern elements like a pancake cake –instead of a traditional wedding cake – as well as the mobile beer bar we created to serve as welcome drinks during guests’ entrance.

Add Modern Elegance with a Prosecco Bar Van

Our couple asked for a minimal wedding so we came up with a mix of copper and marble. We started out with the minimal design of invitations by Atelier invitations and then also took it to our tables with the creation of a unique personalized favor made out of marble that also served as a seating card.

Then we softened our minimalistic tablescape by adding the abstract floral napkins wrapped with copper napkin rings, and the unique flower mix with King proteas, orchids, Perla roses, eucalyptus, eustoma. The ceremony took place in the same venue under a unique arch where king protea flowers gave a lovely contrast to Greece’s blue skies. As we all know the bar is truly important for a good party so our groom chose a whiskey bar and our bride a mobile Prosecco Bar Van for everyone to enjoy right after the ceremony. Decoration of the cake was prepared from our team’s florist and it was another of her wild creations of the day. It was a unique day followed by a great party! What more can a planner ask for? See this modern wedding with your own eyes!

Use your Bar Van to Serve Coffee

It may look like a classical Prosecco Bar Van but it’s serving amazing coffee. There is always room for one more espresso during a wedding day and a styled photo shoot, too! If you and your guests are coffee lovers, then add a Coffee Bar at your wedding reception. Believe us, it will make your day!

In this moody and romantic styled shoot in Athens, we had the best time ever! As you can see, the concrete elements were combined with lots of greenery and fresh flowers to smooth the whole outcome. Our flowers concept, as usual, it was rich with Tulips, lisianthus, anemones, ranunculus, freesias, peonies, veronica, hydrangeas, delphinium, roses, lilac, scabiosa pods, ami, amaranthus green, ruscus, fern and eucalyptus. And of course a lot of coffee from the lovely mobile espresso bar that you will fall in love with. It was the best start for the dinner setup.

Exclusive Interview with Victoria KyriaKides

Exclusive Interview with Victoria KyriaKides

· Exclusive Interviews, Luxury Weddings, RockPaperScissors, Top Wedding Brands, Weddings · , , , , , , , ,

Our new Exclusive Interviews section is launching with Victoria KyriaKides, one of the top wedding fashion designers in the world. She has been established for her unique wedding gowns.

Victoria KyriaKides

Victoria KyriaKides has been creating haute couture collections since the early 2000s using her individual “sur mesure” authentic French technique. Every dress is created by hand in the master atelier to the precise measurements of each individual bride.  Every thoughtful detail is meticulously regarded.  An international trendsetter, Victoria is a favorite in Europe among her discerning clientele.

Victoria is able to reveal the beauty of the female body through her distinguished body-conscious feminine cuts, minimalism, the use of the highest quality materials available and timeless ideas.  Exceptional service and individual attention to each client by the designer are part of the brand’s essence and of utmost importance.

Victoria Kyriakides’ (VKK’s) master atelier is located in Athens, Greece, and an additional showroom is located in New York.  She presents her collections twice a year in New York.​​​​​​​​​​ Her Collections are available in numerous exclusive boutiques around the USA, Europe and Asia.

What made you want to start making wedding dresses?

My vision was to bring a fashion aesthetic with red carpet glamour to traditional bridal wear. I wanted to see women in clean-cut designs, rearrange traditional bridal forms, and design wedding dresses with the most luxurious fabrics available and edgy details.

Exclusive Interview with Victoria KyriaKides

What’s the most significant moment of your career?

There are so many great things that have happened which make me feel so grateful. Recognition from major international publications and media platforms, establishing my NYC showroom, the collaboration with Saks 5th Avenue NYC and Beverly Hills, among other collaborations with top boutiques internationally. I am enjoying every moment of this journey!

Where do you find inspiration to design your bridal collections?

It just comes with a tune, with a glance, with a feeling.

Exclusive Interview with Victoria KyriaKides

What are the latest wedding trends which you find amazing?

I just presented my SS 2020 Collection at the NYBW this April with a range fashion statement. The dresses distinguish themselves with the intricate handwork that goes into each piece. Sheer lightness,  embroidery and appliqués, Victorian sleeves and yes — sparkle, party mini dresses under skirts.

Exclusive Interview with Victoria KyriaKides

What does the perfect bride look like to you?

The bride that possesses a strong balance between dynamic and romantic qualities.

My bride mostly is a fashion conscious, often fashion-forward girl who appreciates a high level of service, a large and tasteful selection of gowns that are highly original, timeless and technically sharp. VKK brides are diverse and unique in nature, but they all possess qualities of being strong, confident and dynamic women. I have dressed all different types of public personalities. Most of my brides are lovely women who want to look and feel truly beautiful, appropriate and comfortable.

Exclusive Interview with Victoria KyriaKides

What advice do you have for future brides?

Dress for yourself and look like yourself! Don’t overdo your hair and makeup. Enhance your natural features to be the most beautiful version of yourself.

Do you have a favorite wedding gown type?

I adore the one of a kind pieces.

Exclusive Interview with Victoria KyriaKides

What is the one mistake that a bride should never make on their wedding day?

Never pick a dress just because wearing it will make someone else happy. It’s your day!

From idyllic beaches to wild precipitous mountains, Crete is a place of contrasts. An island which is rich in tradition and gifted with so many breath-taking sceneries, you cannot do anything else than immediately fall in love with it. The setting completes with extraordinary delicious food, enchanting folklore music, but most of all with people with huge honest smiles, ready and willing to make you never forget Crete.

Abaton Island Resort & Spa is the ideal venue for an elegant, yet effortless event. The brand new 5-star hotel at Chersonissos, except for its impeccable classy decor and a plethora of luxurious amenities, deeply respects the natural landscape mindfully preserving its original character. Minimal, yet luxurious details embellish this upscale hotel, making it the ultimate choice for the couple who looks for a classy, modern and effortlessly luxurious venue for their special day.

The ceremony gown is the “Vivienne” dress from the VKK Haute Couture collection. The net-lacy bodice with V-heart neckline compliments the bust. The rich A-line feather skirt moves with the body in motion and you will be able to enjoy more of it in our short video trailer. A gorgeous pair of baby pink patent Jimmy Choo’s beautifully complete this contemporary, yet elegant look.

Exclusive Interview with Victoria KyriaKides

The tradition was infused with local musicians from Crete, escorting our bride to be in the ceremony area and rhyming traditional “mantinades”/ wishes in forms of short poems, to our couple after their ceremony. See more photos from this Elegant Beach Wedding in Crete and get inspired.

Wedding Photographers Advice

Top wedding photographers share their secrets & advice on how to get the best photos on your wedding day. What couples should avoid and how to get the best results from your photographer. Let’s hear them out!

As a Wedding & Event Planning Agency for more than 8 years, we had the opportunity to organize countless luxury weddings. As a result of that, we have interacted with many vendors and professionals in order to organize all these weddings. Who will disagree that wedding photographers are part of the top 3 professionals that are really close to the couple? Next to the wedding planner and to the bridal gown’s designer, they see the couple under the stressful process of the wedding preparation.

Like everything in life, all great achievements are based on communication. To have magnificent wedding photographs it’s important that you and your photographer have communicated all the details. To avoid any disappointments take the time and explain to your wedding photographer what do you want and how you have imagined your big day photos. Also is important to hear wedding photographers advise on the matter and trust their experience.

However, if you’ve never had the chance to talk with a professional wedding photographer before, then these golden tips from them will shed light on what is important in a wedding photography session. Also, you will discover what drives crazy the wedding photographers on a wedding day. Enjoy their words of wisdom and keep notes if you want to ask your wedding photographer the right questions.

Choosing the right photographer to document such a special day naturally builds up anxiety for couples as they understand that when the wedding is over photographs will be their memories of the day. The advice I would give to the couples choosing their wedding photographer would include the following:

If a couple feels uncertain where to begin I would suggest that they look for the style of wedding photographs they’re most attracted to, asking themselves what they wish to see in their wedding images, what colours or tones make their hearts skip, and how they would like their event to be captured. There’s is literally a sea of choices and inspiration from numerous wedding blogs which makes it so much easier for brides to get an idea on different styles in wedding photography.

On a practical basis, it does help a lot to Pin one’s favourite photographs and to create an inspiration board of one’s own. Using these as guides the bride will understand what exactly she’s looking for. A pivotal moment I guess is when – in the process of choosing between wedding photographers- you start envisioning yourself as having already been photographed by this specific creative. This is the moment when your first connection with a photographer begins.

Do pay notice on that personal connection you feel because that means you will be feeling comfortable and at ease with this person. Scheduling a Skype call and seeing how your first meeting flows is key. Some couples are reserved and would require some guidance, others have a strong vision and others are in search of that “click” thing. Personality goes a long way and you always know it in your heart when you’ve found the “one”. It’s like with an engagement ring, it goes way beyond simply the investment, you pick it because it speaks of who you are. It’s so….you!

Let me give one more advice to the couples getting ready for their wedding photo shoot.

After planning your wedding day for several months, meeting your photographer and discussing all the necessary details with them in advance is essential.

On your wedding day, you have to try your best to relax and enjoy every bit of what’s happening around you, absorb it, memorize it, and live it. Leave all the concerns to the professionals who are there for you: your wedding planner, your photographer, the whole team that is working to make this day happen the way you have envisioned.

Standing before the camera might feel awkward at first, so act naturally. Trust your photographer and allow them to guide you. Personally, I require no specific preparation for a photo shooting from my brides, it is my job to make them feel comfortable around me and in front of my camera. They don’t have to prepare or stress about it. The only thing I ask – is trust and time to be able to access my creativity and produce some beautiful images.

I always have in mind that this is the couple’s wedding day and this means you must be flexible enough to fit your photography style, aesthetics and vision in their plan and expectations. Nevertheless, it makes my life so much easier and the photos so much better when photography is an important factor while planning their wedding day.

Portraits of the bride and groom individually, right after their preparations, are often the prettiest since everyone looks perfect! Most of the times though, we must make them under time pressure. The same thing happens with family and couple’s portraits either because there is not much time for them in the wedding plan or because we don’t have much time with daylight.

One more thing often overlooked is the time we need to create images that describe the venue and the decoration at the reception. Most of the couples invest a big part of their wedding budget in them but don’t realise the time required for making beautiful images that showcase the concept and style of their wedding.

Especially when the photographer is working alone, it is of crucial importance to include in the wedding plan 30-40 min of the photographer’s time to capture the decoration and styling images when the reception venue is still with no guests. Of course, our life can be much easier when the couple books a second photographer that will fill in the wedding schedule gaps and make the plan of the day smoother.

In my experience, I have found, the key to a successful wedding event is that there must be positive and open communication between the couple to be and the photographer.

This Ancient Greece inspired wedding was full of unexpected surprises for the newlyweds. The ceremony took place at the church of Agios Spyridon at Pagkrati, where then the couple and their guests walked to their venue. As they entered the park, a surprise awaited our bride from her groom and her bridesmaids and a lovely bridal parade with traditional musicians and a bridal “she said yes” banner awaited her. ✨ ✨ The photographer @pahountisg captured perfectly the vibes of the wedding day.

A major factor is having a realistic timeline to take into account, as far as designing a wedding event. The ideal time to have the wedding ceremony is two-and-a-half hours before sunset. At this time photographs of the closest family, friends and couple are complimented when taken at the best light of the day. Τhis way we also get to have enough time with the couple as I personally feel the need to have images that show their true connection.

The best experience for the photographer and lovely couple are met inevitably with this simple rule of thumb!

As a professional photographer, I believe that all professionals involved in a wedding have some golden pieces of advice for the couple. And in some cases, we all need a reminder of them! But the good thing is that experience is empowering us with a lot of skills. I am a fan of good communication prior to the wedding day and I believe that not only it can solve potentially negative situations, but it can also act proactively.

This is the reason I make sure to get to know the bride and groom to be months before their beautiful wedding day. Plus, I always get in touch with the wedding planner, to make sure I am in the information loop and discuss schedule, and other colleagues that I know I will be closely working with on that day, i.e. the film-maker. My motto is that we are all working toward the same goal: to give the happy couple one of the best experiences they can have. Communication is the key!

What drives us a little crazy -but at the same time makes us very creative – on the wedding day is the couple’s anxiety. However, this “madness” provides us the most spontaneous, strong and emotional clicks. Our advice would be to just act as you feel, trust your professional photographers and finally, this special day will take value over the years.

What drives my creativity at weddings are the people. Is the reason that I am working as a portrait and people’s photographer. It’s the magical unique moment during the photo session that I am losing the world around me and feel like everything happens only in the picture that I can see through my camera. My advice would be for the couple to enjoy this unique experience with all their heart.
