Last year we were delighted to be asked by James (of Clay Salon in Oxshott) and Hannah to shoot their wedding on the beautiful island of Rhodes. Excited didn’t even come close.
Armed with so much kit, memory card and batteries (as well as some beach attire!) we headed off to the airport with some of the wedding guests, to begin what would be a most memorable and unforgettable trip…
We arrived at the gorgeous Atrium Prestige Spa Resort and gladly had a day to acclimatise, reccie and get organised for the wedding the following day. (We then headed to the private beach at the foot of the hotel!)
After a lovely meal in the evening with the wedding party, we headed off for an early night, ready for the big day….
In the morning Will caught up with the boys having a last dip and relax in the grooms private pool in the garden of their villa..
Last minute ‘fatherly-son’ chat before the wedding!
Meanwhile, I caught up with the girls for a bit of hair & make up, cocktails and music! Katerina, the wedding co ordinator at the Atrium Prestige, brought up a tray of the most delicious cocktails I’ve ever had! Her secret home made recipe, not to strong and very fruity!
The hair was done by Kaya of Clay Salon and the make up by Kim & Maddie. Everyone looked Gorgeous.
James & Hannah’s adorable little daughter Rose was a flower girl and was so cute in her dress! She was an absolute star all day.
Hannah’s sister Harriet and her best friend Maria, here with Hannah’s mum, were gorgeous bridesmaids in beautiful gold one shoulder dresses.
The moment when dad saw Hannah for the first time! Tissues were at the ready!
So the boys were out of the pool and getting dressed-James had trouble with his tie, so luckily usher Ben was on hand to help out!
The Groom and his groomsmen looking uber cool…
Time to go! Could you get a more perfect venue…
Groom getting nervous, fiddling with tie; cue the most adorable little greek man playing ‘Here come the bride’ on his violin, tearful bridesmaid and we’re all set for a wedding!
How Gorgeous?! Possible front cover me thinks….
The speeches were SO emotional, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house..
The brilliant first dance to Olly Murs “Dance with Me Tonight’ complete with usher participation!!
And the most wonderful day topped off with fireworks and then lighting lanterns on the beach.
The hotel at night-thousands of tiny lights on the bottom of the pools… Amazing.
Congratulations guys and we really feel privileged to have been part of it. H&W x
