From the photographer:
CRETE GREECE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
“Katrina’s and Alan’s wedding was something very unique for us. We were able to travel to this beautiful island in Greece for this occasion and stay in a charming little village of Elounda. The village is just next to the mystical island of Spinalonga, where the wedding took place. Spinalonga has a remarkable history. It used to be a part of the island before the 16th century. Then the Venetians cut a piece of the peninsula and made the island. Spinalonga was used as fort that protected the entryway to their port.
Two centuries later it was in Ottomans hands, but mostly it’s known for it’s recent history. From 1903 to 1957 the island was a home for a leper colony. Walking around the island today feels like traveling back in that time. A lot of the walls have been restored, and walking through the “main street”, it actually feels like a charming little Mediterranean town.
Katrina and Alan had a very simple plan:
- Bring people over from all around to come and enjoy a long weekend on Crete.
- Get a boat and go to Spinalonga for the ceremony
- Return to mainland and party!
Checked, checked aaaaaand checked. We loved how simple, yet how special their day was. Full of emotions, laughing, funny and a bit embarrassing stories, hugs, lots of ouzo and delicious greek food. And the people,… wow, that was one great crowd! Thank you K&A for such an adventure!”
