Wedding Photography Rhodes Symi

Helen & Jean

 

 

We are Destination Wedding Photographers, and we travel the world for yet another story. We believe we will never outgrow the urge of storytelling, and the need to connect. In fairy tales for real people.

“There is something particularly fascinating about seeing places you know in a piece of art – be that in a film, or a photograph, or a painting.”

And you will hardly find wrong people at special places. Like every time we go to Symi… To find special people who make it happen. And it was like love at first sight.

Helen and Jean, from Ireland and France. With a love for Symi, life music and each other. When we asked Helen to describe Jean, she said “the best thing that ever happened to me”

Helen, the eccentric girl from Belfast, an artist, an animal lover, whose passion in life is the endless pursuit of being the best person she can be.
Jean, in a French accent you will fall for, instantly, and the genuinest gentle smile you have ever seen, seeking gems in all that lies beyond… A person you definitely feel blessed to have met..

As prejudiced as we may sound, nothing can be more inspiring for a wedding photographer that the magic of seeing through the heart.

“It is only with the heart that one can see, hear and feel clearly. Think of an image, music or movie that moves you. Things that we truly love touch our heart before our head analyzes them away. Once we think we understand them, they disappear… It is because simple things in life are invisible, inaudible and insensible to an analytical mind and an undiscerning heart. Let your heart hear the music – be moved by images, people and places… For that makes you more alive than others.”

 

Symi Wedding Photography

 

We are not at all surprised they chose Symi as the perfect backdrop for their wedding. And we were honoured they chose us as their wedding photographers.

The magic fills you just as you approach the port. You have the overwhelming feeling of entering a perfectly painted image of a scenic traditional village. And you remain agape with this spectacular sight.
You cannot resist the superb spectacle of Symi stretching its impeccable architecture – almost photoshoped colorful houses listed on the slopes of the surrounding hills. You cannot stop marveling the breathtaking sight that belies your expectation. And the sea… The infinite blue… But bluer!

Symi is more than words or photos can say!

And special places make special bonds, our favorite place to be.

Let’s pause at that, but not for long. We have a promise to fulfill – to take them back to Symi, again and again.

For five amazing days we shared and enjoyed their passion for life, their hospitality and their friendship. It was like we has known them forever. The memorable cruise of Posseidon and Cpt Yiannis, whose unforgettable lunches on the beach keep us dreaming throughout winter. Preparations and the ceremony took place at the Iapetos Hotel and the reception took place at Haritomeni overlooking the amazing scenery of the Symi bay.

Yiannis & Yianna Wedding, The Cats’ Wedding in Symi Island | Wedding Photographer Symi

s.Yiannis & Yianna Wedding, The Cats’ Wedding in Symi Island | Wedding Photographer Symi

Two Cats

One up a tree
One under the tree
The cat up a tree is he
The cat under the tree is she
The tree is witch elm, just incidentally.
He takes no notice of she, she takes no notice of he.
He stares at the woolly clouds passing, she stares at the tree.
There’s been a lot written about cats, by Old Possum, Yeats and Company.
But not Alfred de Musset or Lord Tennyson or Poe or anybody
Wrote about one cat under, and one cat up, a tree.
God knows why this should be left for me
Except I like cats as cats be
Especially one cat up
And one cat under
A witch elm
Tree.

Mid-August. High season for a wedding photographer! Approaching the port of Symi, we had the overwhelming feeling of entering a perfectly painted image of a traditional scenic village. We have to admit we remained agape throughout our stay, unable to resist the superb spectacle of the town stretching its impeccable architecture, where all of the buildings were listed on the slopes of the surrounding hills. The port of Symi looked like it might have been photoshopped, the colours that surrounded us a breathtaking sight. Last but not least. No words could describe the beauty of the sea that surrounds the island where the horizon unfolds until the shores of Turkey.

And yes, there was something definitely going on there. This was the Cats’ Wedding!

What a funkier way to start a wedding than a daily boat cruise around the island. It was an amazing group. There were drinks, good food music and a whole lot of shaking going on. everyone had a ball! Capturing the spirit of the day, we photographed performing acrobatics, onboard, underwater and in the air!

On the day itself, our Cats from Amsterdam, started the day in separate houses, as is traditional. The groom and his men prepared themselves in Pedi, and our bride and her party prepared up in the Horio, the higher village. At a set point in the afternoon, Yianna left the house in a beautiful flowing white gown created by Maria Konidi.

She boarded a specially decorated boat, a caique, a traditional sponge diving boat, to meet Yannis at the church in Pedi led by musicians. The groom was also accompanied by musicians, a slow walk to the church. Of course, there was a lot of “penemata” fοr both… A traditional ritual loyally kept by Yiayia Varvara, the favoured Persona Grata of the event.

A beautiful ceremony took place, where they exchanged their own personal vows before their families and loved ones.

The reception (more a party to remember) was held at Pedi beach hotel overlooking the harbour with its twinkling lights, and the boats coming in and out. Cannot reveal more as  we promise to surprise you with images when the time comes<

Sounds perfect to you? It was for them, and also for us, beautiful images, precious moments, inevitable memories made from the Cats’ wedding, in Simi.

And as we are no ordinary wedding photographers. These are no ordinary cats!

So happy to be part of this wedding, to have felt, to have shared to have captured. We thank you for the fun and the trust. We thank you for sharing genuine smiles, but even more we thank you for the sincere friendship. Our wishes will always be with you.
