This week's album is Evagoras Mandrides Photography of the UK. This is a traditional Greek wedding, something Evagoras is very familiar with. His clients often take part in the standard, pre-wedding preparations at their homes, then have a Greek Orthodox church service followed by an evening full of dancing — and further traditions too many to list!

According to 'Greek Wedding Traditions', it's traditional for family members to tie a red scarf, as a blessing, around the bride and groom's waists.

"When the bride is dressed and ready, her parents, grandparents and other relatives, just before they all start their way to the church for the wedding ceremony, will say goodbye to the bride and give her their blessing. The father of the bride will cross a red scarf three times around the bride’s waist and her head as a way to symbolize fertility and then they will use a censer to bless her and to protect her from the evil eye."

Similar preparations are also done at the groom's house before they meet to travel to the church.

Evagoras says, "One thing that does stick to my mind is how awesome the couple were in front of the camera and how comfortable they were during the day. Their posing and positioning were spot on and it did not need much direction from myself to get the shots that I needed."

Sounds like a wedding photographer's dream!
