Wedding photography Hydra – The wedding of Evi & Amédée
Wedding photography is a challenge for us. And we always like to reveal a story. The unseen. One that highlights details, that otherwise would be forgotten. One that reveals a different perspective each time you revisit your imagery.
So, for Evi and Amédée the question was: What if ?
What if we had the ability to relive a day in our past
to travel backwards in time
to feel that special moment again
Their wedding took place in Hydra. Built in the shape of an amphitheatre on a slope overlooking the Argosaronic gulf, Hydra is one of the most romantic wedding destinations in Greece. Traditional stone mansions, narrow cobblestoned streets, secluded squares. But above all the banning of cars and the use of around 500 donkeys as means of public transportation, explain the reason why Hydra preserved its distinctive atmosphere through the passage of time.
An Island with a strong personality and aesthetics, that kept its special aura through time. A small hint, was enough to make them fall in love with the island. A love at first sight, could not keep Amédée and Evi from deciding to get married in Hydra.
Following our preview post, we prepared a storytelling presentation of their wedding album, a story of all that happened during these three days of their wedding in Hydra. A beautiful story of beautiful people, with smiles so warm and genuine, smiles with just the right touch of shyness filling us with this unexpected warmth that makes the world seem ever so beautiful.
We once again wish you, joy and happiness on this wonderful journey, as you build your lives together.

Wedding photography Hydra
Our wedding photography, more than a skill, is a passion that combines a number of things. New places, new people and emotions so strong that fill the days we spend with our couples with joy, happiness and immense creativity.
Hydra, one of the most romantic islands in Greece and an excellent choice to organise your destination wedding in Greece. Built in the shape of an amphitheatre on a slope overlooking the Argosaronic Gulf. Traditional stone mansions, narrow cobblestoned streets and secluded squares. Donkeys used for transportation, explain the reason why Hydra preserved its distinctive atmosphere through the passage of time.
As you walk along the waterfront, the heart of the town, you encounter monuments, churches, canons, museums, old stone mansions, statues of famous heroes, the old gunpowder store, shops and cafes, while picturesque winding streets lead you to neighbourhoods located at the upper part of the town, as well as to the old neighbourhoods. Such a romantic mosaic.
Hydra was the destination chosen by Natalia & Apostolos to join their lives. They travelled all the way from Geneva, to host their beautiful families from Russia and Greece. Friends from all over the world followed their happy days, witnessing their vows at the church of Agios Nikolaos. A tiny island almost drowned in the big blue, a five-minute ride by the sea taxi, that holds all the characteristics of the beauty of the Saronic Gulf. As small as it was, it embraced every smile, laugher and happiness. It embraced life. The bride’s arrival by a small boat was like an honour for a Princess. A tiny flower girl in a pink tutu dress was there to throw petals for her to step on. Small boats around the island hosted the rest of the guests. Cheers and laughter echoing everywhere. It was the late hours of the evening that gifted us with a sky that was all we could dream for our images. Castello was our nest destination and the party went on until the morning hours.
