Ο Νίκος κι η Χαρά στη Σαντορίνη!

In the middle of September we left Stockholm with near 0 degrees and arrived in Santorini.
At 8.30 in the evening and with 22 degrees C, the wedding couple with the bestman and one more friend were at the airport to welcome us and take us out for dinner, before they droveus to the hotel.
3 hours and lots of seafood and other greek delicasies later, we arrived at the hotel, left our things there and followed the couple for a drink at a club, where their friends were waiting. We left them at the bar and went to sleep at ... 06.30 in the morning!!!

That was a taste of what would follow the next days!

The couple with their closest friends had booked rooms at a wonderful hotel at Imerovigli, just a few meters away from the church where they would have the wedding ceremony.
The view from their hotel and the terace where everybody was gothering for a coffee was simply breathtaking.

The bride started getting ready for the ceremony at 3 pm with her closest friends. It was a change from the weddings we usually photograph to see so many of the bride's family members just coming in and out her room, huging and wishing, and being photographed with her!

On the meantime, the bridegroom with his friends did not look any stressed at all, just chilling out with a few drinks near the hotel's swimming pool!

Both the bride and the bridegroom were escorted to the church by their families and relatives ... with the bride almost dragging her father from anxiety to meet her love and come in the church!

After the ceremony and just before entering the venue where the reception party would be held, i asked the couple what was the schedule of the happenings there.
Nikos said they would cut the cake first and then they would go around the gests' tables to skoal with each one of them. Then they would sit down and take it easy for the rest of the night to get some rest.
"Won't you dance any?", i asked them rather surprised. "The first dance is always the bride's by tradition!"
"No, no!" they both anwered at once, "let the older dance! We shall take it easy!"

Well, he, he, yes the older did dance, but i don't think the couple got any rest either! :-)

By the way, the teenager who played greek traditional music from the islands with his violin was a-m-a-z-i-n-g!

Because of shortage of time we did not have the time for some photos of the couple with the bestman and the bridesmaid at the wedding day.
But we had plenty of time the day after! :-)
So out we were again, with everybody in the nice clothes (except me, it was some 30 degrees C). We also had the friends as our audience following us everywhere, plus dosens of turists who thought it was a photo session for some fashion magasine and of course stopped by to take their own pictures! :-)

Chara and Niko, our warmest congratulations and wishes for your life together! And many thanks because you were the reason for a wonderful time in a wonderful island!
Many thanks also to Jannis (the bestman), Giwta (the super happy bridesmaid), Niki, Ariadni (most beloved!), Aggelos and Paulina and everybody else, who welcomed us and made us feel as if we new you for years!
We love you all! :-)
