“A Greek – Australian and a Jamaican – Brit walked into a Hong Kong bar…”
No, it’s not the start of a joke!
It’s the start of Labrini and Richard’s lives together.
We had the pleasure of witnessing the beginning of their everlasting love.
After a difficult COVID period that forced them to postpone their wedding, they were able to hold it this year with 80 guests in attendance. And so their epic journey began.
They had a pre-wedding shoot the day before in Naoussa Paros, one of the most spectacular scenery on the island.
The couple chose an all-inclusive villa on the majestic Greek island of Paros, because Labrini is of Greek descent and adores the country. And inevitably, Richard fell in love with Greece through her.
Labrini, the bride, did her own make-up and had a good time getting ready with her friends. Just like Richard did. They took some photos and shared their genuine smiles and happiness with us. During the wedding preparations, Labrini also gave some emotional speeches to her friends.
The stunning bridal bouquet of white flowers was perfectly matched by the absolutely chic and excellently simple wedding gown and the rest of the flower decorations made of Pampas grass.
A touching ceremony with her mother reading the groom’s a Kavafis poem, showing to everyone how they are each other’s Ithaca, and her brother changing the wreaths. During the speeches from their loved ones, they received very touching wishes. Following family portraits, a mini shooting with the two of them in an olive tree nearby as it was scheduled.
A guitarist captivated us with his performance during the cocktail hour that followed, and later the DJ kicked off the party.
The party started after they finished their first dance next to the villa’s pool with a breathtaking Hollywood kiss.
The wedding planner and her team did an excellent job. So did the photographer, with whom we had excellent cooperation and who we enjoy working with because he is an outstanding professional.
