Choosing a perfect location for your wedding

Perfect location for your wedding

What is so special about wedding photography sessions is of course the fact that it is the way of documenting one of the most important and exceptional days of your lives. Every time I take wedding photographs I aim to capture the solemnity of the occasion, the depth of your love as well as the intense emotions that you are filled with. Just look at the pictures in my gallery to see the deep and passionate love of the newlyweds.

Working as a  wedding photographer in London and worldwide, I have learnt that my clients often ponder over organising their wedding ceremony in their home town or somewhere abroad. I worked both as a London wedding photographer as well as a destination wedding photographer abroad and I must say that every location has its advantages. There is always something special to emphasise the uniqueness of this great moment of your wedding.

Having your wedding at home, you can choose venues which are somehow connected to you and your relationship. You can choose your favourite church for the ceremony, your favourite restaurant for the reception and your favourite places for the wedding photography session. Some couples want to have their wedding photographs taken in the area where they met for the first time, in the park where they enjoy going for a walk, in a word, in all the places which they associate with their relationship and which evoke positive and romantic connotations for the newlyweds.

Working as a wedding photographer, I also noticed that it is essential for the bride and the groom to have all your nearest and dearest close to you. When you organise your wedding ceremony in your home town, it usually gives you an opportunity to invite more family and friends than when you have your wedding abroad. In this way you can celebrate your special day with the loved ones, you can also seize the chance of capturing your whole family in your wedding photographs.

On the other hand, when you decide on having your wedding abroad, there is a multiplicity of various places where you can organise your wedding ceremony. Every couple is unique, you prefer different things and different factors determine the place of your choice. Nevertheless, every bride and groom want to have their wedding reception in a venue which is beautiful, exceptional and remarkable. You usually prefer areas which are different from what you have in the UK. That is why the most popular seem to be Mediterranean countries which guarantee a wonderful sunny weather and picturesque views of the azure sea and colourful, scenic seaside towns. Having your wedding ceremony and your wedding photography session on a golden beach, with the clear blue water in the background, surrounded by palm trees and luxurious hotels is what makes wedding abroad a really popular and accurate choice.

In my experience as a destination wedding photographer I have had a chance of taking a number of wedding photography sessions and elopement weddings abroad. I travel a lot but my special wedding venues in Europe are Italy- Amalfi Coast and Lakes Garda and Como district, South of France and Greek Islands – I do love Santorini so much!
