kristal + makis | bed making ceremony | greece wedding.

A few days before the wedding, and a couple hours after our mini portrait session through a small village in Corfu (see here), a pre wedding tradition occured at the Kristal + Makis' home.  The Krevatia or Bed Making Ceremony is a Greek wedding tradition that involves the bridesmaids or unmarried female family or friends making the couple's bed 3 times which in turn blesses their bed and fertility.  If felt as if the whole town was present within that small bedroom, laughing, singing and taking part in this intimate ceremony. It was such a surreal experience, something I've never seen before and I'm so glad I could be witness to it.
