The wedding shared with us by photographer Elias Kordelakos comes straight out of a fairytale! The tasteful and classy décor, made up of a variety of flowers in white, ivory and slightly blush tones, down to the smallest detail was taken care of by the team of The 12 Events. The couple chose Sifnos island to celebrate the wedding with their closest friends with a 3-day celebration! For the ceremony they chose Chrisopigi, one of the most beautiful Aegean churches. The guests enjoyed their holidays in Greece and plenty of traditional music, dancing and delicious dishes of excellent local cuisine. When we receive weddings like these we feel really proud to live in this beautiful country with such high-profile professionals.
From photographer Elias Kordelakos: Let’s see where I should start from. I had so many amazing feelings from my 3 days experience in Sifnos that I need to be sure I have the right words! Well I guess, with the most important one, the people. Being a wedding photographer has to do mostly with people. No matter how good the light is, no matter how good a background or how expensive a wedding dress is, it always has to do with people. Being in Sifnos with George and Ainee was an experience like few. Their families and friends embraced me and my associate from the minute we stepped foot on the island. They made us feel like their friends and that we were part of the fun! I feel also that Sifnos has some positive vibes as an island and I surely consider it one of my favorites in Cyclades!
The wedding day in Sifnos was so filled with good vibes, a great atmosphere! Beautiful decoration and details, lots and lots of smiles and emotional moments! A photographer’s joyride. I love my work for giving me opportunities to witness all this from close up. I believe strongly that wedding photography is to tell a story, the story of a couple and their guests enjoying the wedding events. It’s more than shooting details and portraits. It’s about being able to be there, understand what is happening and capture the best moments as they unravel. If you feel by looking at my images, you understand the story of the day and you don’t miss a part, then I should consider myself successful. Enjoy one of the most amazing weddings in Sifnos.
