When i received the first email from Shannon & Joss and how they envisioned their destination wedding to be, i was beyond excited. The couple lives in Brisbane, Australia and both of them have a close connection to the ocean. They seemed pretty free spirited and wanted to celebrate a weekend in Greece with their close family and friends. There are a few people, that you feel the connection right away and Shannon & Joss were one of these people. Their destination wedding weekend was indeed epic for many reasons. Both created a wedding weekend that felt authentic and a beautiful reflection of who they are.
The sunrise after their wedding we went for a event more intimate celebration up on the hills of Oia, where there shared beautiful and intimate moments, surrounded by nature, ocean views, the winds and the beautiful silence that you find in more secluded parts of the island. After the shoot everyone went rock jumping followed by lunch in Amoudi Bay. Possibly the highlight of the wedding weekend was the sunset sailing cruise.
‘We wanted a natural, effortless shoot that combined nature and would tell our story of ‘the pirate and the gypsy mermaid’. The angles, use of light, use of our natural surroundings, Chris absolutely nailed it. Her photos are magical and are seen to capture the sense of euphoria (that I can now confirm) that two people, in love, experience on their wedding days.‘ Shannon + Joss
