Beach Wedding Party in Aegina for Panagiotis & Anastasia
After many years as a wedding photographer, I’ve learned that Aegina island is full of perfect spots for photo shoots. Sometimes, I will take a couple on a tour of some of my favorites, but with other weddings in Aegina, that is completely unnecessary.
Panagiotis and Anastasia’s wedding had three gorgeous locations built into their wedding day. My first stop was at Rastoni hotel, where Anastasia was getting ready. We took a few moments to get some portraits taken in their garden, where the light fell beautifully through all the leafy green.
The Wedding Locations in Aegina
Talking about making my job easy, aside from the glorious locations, I couldn’t have asked for a better photo op than when Panagiotis arrived to present Anastasia with her bouquet, and then they both took off towards the ceremony, each on a motorcycle, along with the family and wedding party. The quick ride took them to the next beautiful spot of the day; the little church of Agioi Anargyroi, on the north west side of the island.
From the green backdrop to the classic Greek white and blue. Agioi Anargyroi is situated right by the sea. The couple, fresh from their drive through the streets of Aegina, kept their big smiles through the entire ceremony, as did their guests. I think I even saw a smile on the face of the couple’s beloved cocker spaniel, who wore a bow tie for the event and happily sat for portraits.
For the reception, Panagiotis and Anastasia stayed true to the feeling of the day, with another slightly unconventional choice for a wedding in Aegina. They went for a beach wedding party at Sarpa beach catered by Rodi Catering. The setting here is incredible. Nature hugs the little bay, making you feel protected and one with the scenery. As the dance party progressed, and even I made it up on the dance floor, the sound of the waves added to the well-chosen tunes.
Many thanks to Panagiotis and Anastasia for letting me be part of your fun and beautiful day!
