Wedding in Ikaria: Markos & Dina

Wedding Video Greece

This wedding video is about the story of a song. And destiny. Of hearts that beat the “Greek way”.

We are always amazed by the heartfelt gathering of people to be part of the happiness of a love story. The energy involved is our sole inspiration and it is breathtakingly beautiful. We capture the essence of these days and translate every gesture into images that tell the real story. Let us give you the feeling of this unforgettable wedding in Ikaria. We have to confess that it has been one of our top favorites.

This is the beautiful story of Dina and Markos who decided to have their wedding in Markos home village: Kosoikia in Ikaria. Markos’ home village and Dina’s dream. Both Greeks, living in the United States, with a love for each other and Greece. The heart of a Greek beats differently – the Greek way..

A story of beautiful people, with smiles so warm and genuine. Friends and loved ones came from all over the world, with caring wishes and loads of surprises that enhanced the days of our stay, leaving us with unforgettable images and memories.

Finally, in Ikaria everything is done in a traditional way, like a classic “Ikariotiko Panigiri”, the absolute identity of this island! Almost identical to the customary ways of old times.

 There is luck and there is destiny…

Markos prepped with a group of close friends. A “torturous” experience that will be remembered by all with laughter and mirth. The moto is: exhaust the groom in every possible way and hand him to the bride. The bride’s preparation took place under completely “sane” and feminine conditions at the Erofili Hotel, overlooking the sea.

Furthermore the ceremony took place at a church exactly next to Markos’ house. The party was held in the churchyard of his home village. All members of both families and friends organized wooden benches and tables for guests to sit and eat at during the celebration. Needless to say everyone was invited. Over a thousand people attended, maybe even more. Rasko – local goat – and various delicious dishes were served with plenty of Ikarian wine for higher spirits.

And yes it was finally happening. And our eyes paused on every smiling face. Emotions filled the evening air with loving wishes and vows. Then the ultimate component of the festival – dance – and, of course most of all, the Ikariotikos dance. Young and old people and children all together hugging and dancing in circles with passion to traditional Ikarian songs played by the live band, some of Greece’s best musicians. Hospitality, sociability, offerings, commitment and generosity, a meeting point for locals, but also for people coming from far away to share this happy moment. They carried us away in their festive mood that we hoped would last for ever…

We hope this wedding video carries you back, to to reveal details unseen.
