Kristal is from Vancouver and Makis is from Corfu. Once upon a time, she travelled through Europe.. taking in the sights, absorbing the sights and enjoying life like so many University students do when they travel abroad. Along the way, she met a man. They fell in love, started a life together in Greece…  and exactly a month ago the two of them celebrated their love for one another in front of friends and family from all across the globe.. and it was EPIC.

And there I was in the thick of it all.. a week long experience that I'll never forget. I got to roam the small streets of Corfu and take their portraits. I witnessed Kristal's Krevatia as their bed was blessed in a traditional ceremony. I toga partied, consumed more Greek food than I could have ever imagined, drove an ATV all over Corfu, basked in the sun, drank many a beer.. and experienced my first big fat Greek wedding… and it was amazing.

Thank you to Sachin Khona, for flying in from London to help me out with this wedding.. You are the man. Seriously.

Dear Kristal and Makis,

    Wow! You seem to have had a great Greek experience. I think these photos speak more than just the wedding itself. It also shows some Greek culture in it. Was there a parade going to the church before the wedding started?
