Wedding Photographer Mykonos
“Love is a place
& through this place of
Yes is a world
& in this world of yes, live
― E.E. Cummings
The Wedding of the year in Mykonos
Once on the far side of yesterday… In a place neither near, not far, and a time neither now nor then, welcome to our world of storytelling, where “magic” exists. Who can doubt it, when there are rainbows and wildflowers, the music of the wind and the silence of the stars? Anyone who has loved has been touched by magic. It is such a simple and such an extraordinary part of the lives we live.
But this story is not about celebrities or public figures. It is mostly about this one particular element that makes you watch the stars and see yourself running with them. But youre not really running, you are only flying. And we have seen this happen over and over, right there in through our eyes, and into our hearts. And it is all that really matters.
Nothing could stop this wedding from happening and nothing could change the amazing energy that surrounded us. Even the foul weather of the previous days gave way to this amazing event.
But yesterday something so great happened that we simply have to share it with you What happened… was…
It’s official – Feel the flow now… you are married to a star.
Enjoy the clip we prepared for the final wedding dress rehearsal in Celia Kritharioti.

The Cat’s | Cinematic Video Clip
Destination wedding cinematography by arChive
This past winter started of with our round trip around Europe, visiting favorite couples, our new friends.
Our trip to Amsterdam. Days to remember. Invited by our Cats for the official infamous arChive album presentation ritual. We shared time and most of all emotions. The wedding, now a warm and sweet memory. We were there to revive all the important, the unseen and the forgotten. Their reactions moved us, as they discovered them selves through our images. Right there and then, we decided this was not going to end here. So we let our imagination race to the next connecting point, already starting to observe and capture precious moments of their everyday life. This is because a wedding should not last a day, but a lifetime. Suddenly Amsterdam became our scenery, the perfect backdrop for a new twist of the plot.
Wedding Cinematography’s way of cheating
As in our wedding photography, so is our wedding cinematography, guided from our passion to interpret moments in a unique way, and reveal connections unseen . We do not direct life, but we discover the story behind the story, there, waiting to be told. And there’s always more, as long as your heart remains open, to feel and to embrace. For our Cats, it was all about the fun, the joy, the laughters and the romance, that filled their wedding days in Symi. It is all about the Love that fills their life in Amsterdam. In everything they do and share.
So… Watch and enjoy our cinematic glimpse, become an everyday fairytale. As is your own. The one you hold precious.

Wedding in Varkiza – Island Gallery wedding: Alex & Maite
The storytelling Wedding Video, for a most amazing couple and their special wedding day at Island Gallery – Varkiza. We are very enthusiastic for sharing this wedding video clip as it carries loads of Love, Friendship and Warmth. We are certain it will make you smile!
“How do I love you?
Let me count the ways.
I love you out of the box, so shiny, pink, and new
I love you with every pique, pirouette, tendu
Second skin of my feet, keeper of my sole
Every step I take, your virtues I extol
The lines you draw, the patterns you trace
At the barre and in the center, you fill a sacred space
Adorned with ribbon like a satin-wrapped prize
Hiding within elegance the pain you disguise
I love you in class, in rehearsal, and on stage
Treasure beyond measure, my spirits you raise
My road to ballet is paved with blood, sweat and tears
You are my companion persistent through the years
Vertical suspension, the summit of my desire
You beneath me, the wings beneath my fire
From toil and struggle, the suffering for your sake
Comes dance so joyous, ever-worthy to create”
If we could see your last pair of shoes, worn out of dancing, we could still dance through every memory, and give these pictures something to keep in your heart. The very special story of a Greek boy and a Basque girl. Alex and Maite, whose story we yet cannot reveal.

s.Yiannis & Yianna Wedding, The Cats’ Wedding in Symi Island | Wedding Photographer Symi
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
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.
This is a preview of Yiannis & Yianna, The Cats’ Wedding in Symi
Very much more coming soon!

For I would ride for you upon the wind,
Ride on top of the dishevelled tide,
And dance upon the mountains like a flame”
