Backstage – Wedding Styled Shoot

A few months ago, during a discussion I had with the talented photographer Yiannis Alefantou, the idea of a styled shoot came up. We both got really excited and started assembling a team of vendors that were happy to participate in our little endeavor! Nothing prepared me for the actual day of the shoot, which turned out to be one of the most memorable and fun days in my career!

It is not easy to properly thank the team of vendors who gave their best to make this shoot a reality, but I will try!!

Obviously this beautiful day would not have been possible without the idea, vision and endless talent of Yiannis Alefantou, one of the greatest wedding photographers of our time who can take a simple set-up and turn it into a breathless piece of art.

Our backstage photographer, Thanasis Kaiafas whose kindness, talent and devotion to what he does, has made him in such a short time one of the best in his field and for which we are thankful for covering all the backstage details of this shoot.

Our beautiful couple, Irini & Evripidis for their hard work that day, for being tireless even under very difficult conditions and their enthusiasm for contributing in this styled shoot in so many more ways that just being the “couple” behind the shoot.

Our talented videographer Kostas Kastanakis of Free Feelings who selflessly travelled all the way from Crete to be with us and capture this day.  I am grateful beyond words can describe for the honor of having him alongside us.

Our extraordinary wedding cake and dessert creator, Alex from Pavlov’s Lab whose bespoke handcrafted and absolutely immaculate creations are beyond anything, anyone could ever expect to find in Greece.

Our hair stylist, Ioanna Karkantelou & make-up artist, Evi Anthrakidou of Define Make-up Team for transforming our bride and any bride they work with, into her most radiant and beautiful self!

Zazoo Event Rentals for their excitement and willingness to take part in this shoot and their always amazing team of hard working people who have not only become part of our team by working with us so often but who make us feel like we are not alone in the ” heavy lifting” of every wedding!

White Lilac for their kind offer to complement our décor with their gorgeous tableware and linens.

Nora from Nice Plume Calligraphy for always adding the most beautiful finishing touches to our décor with her amazing calligraphy!

Nasioutzic Museum, one of the most beautiful and truly unique venues in Athens for hosting the shoot and for their invaluable help during this day.

Dimitris Petrou for the sharp 60s stunning tuxedo of our groom and Eleni Kollarou for the stunning lace gown created for our bride!

Last but not least my team who are one of a kind and for which I am grateful every day.

With that, we hope you enjoy the backstage photos of Thanasis Kaiafas & Yiannis Alefantou and hope you get a glimpse of what went on behind the scenes in our styled-shoot!
