Madalina & Stelios

31st October 2021

The Greek wedding of Madalina and Stelios on the 31st October 2021 at the Mere Golf Resort & Spa in Cheshire was just amazing, and a pleasure to be a part of.

The day started at the Mere golf resort and spa with usual bridal preparations photographing the hair and makeup the dress shoes and flowers etc, the wedding reception was being held in one of the large function suites with a guest total of 360 attending the wedding, so I had the opportunity to go and photograph the room before the guests arrived in the afternoon.

The wedding ceremony was being held at the orthodox Greek church in Salford, a large impressive building with beautiful decorations inside.

This was the first Greek wedding I have photographed and what a fantastic wedding ceremony it was, a lot more hands-on and family orientated, I found it to be more relaxed informal and about the wedding and the bond between the couple than in most ordinary wedding ceremonies in churches and registry offices.

After the ceremony it was time to head back to the Mere for the couples personal wedding photos around the venue, with the addition of some pink smoke bombs being let off at the entrance to the Mere, soon enough it was time for the wedding reception and celebrations to begin, the family and bride and groom both made their entrances into the ceremony room with the bride and groom taking straight to the dance floor to provide a dance in front of all their guests truly fantastic spectacle as both are professional dancers.

The wedding was full of traditional events, dancing and celebrations wow! what an amazing day.
