Wedding photographer Corfu
I recently travelled to the wonderful picturesque island of Corfu from my base in the UK to photograph the wedding of Corrina and Tim. They got engaged in Corfu so why not get married at the same place!
The bridal party got ready at the Akrotiri Beach Hotel in Paleokastritsa, whilst the boys had a few drinks at the bar. The ceremony took place on the beach outside the Swanky Akron beach bar and later moved into the restaurant for an amazing feast of local cuisine. On the day the temperature reached a very pleasant 32 degree’s and the sun was shining. The evening went on with plenty of dancing and a fantastic fireworks display, definitely a wedding to remember.
So why choose Corfu as a wedding destination? Well that’s easy to answer, Corfu is simply stunning! Don’t get Corfu confused with the package holiday islands of mainland Greece, Corfu is the same today as it was 20 years ago, totally untouched and a true gem.
Flying from the UK to Corfu takes a little under 3.5 Hours and flights can be had for a bargain price. I charge my usual UK prices for Corfu with the addition of flights and 2 nights accommodation.
As a destination wedding photographer I usually cater for English couples in countries such as Corfu and I often get asked why do couples fly you out to foreign countries to photograph their weddings? Well there are a few reasons. The main reason is the majority of photographers you will find bundled in with a wedding package abroad will be average at best. You will be surprised at the amount of couples that have contacted me to “fix” and re-edit photographs taken on foreign weddings by local photographers. Now don’t get me wrong there are some very talented photographers to be found on many of the Greek islands, but not knowing or being able to meet them in person beforehand is a gamble and if you have a problem with your images you may have a battle on your hands trying to get them fixed. As a UK based destination wedding photographer I will always meet up with my couples to discuss exactly what they are looking for and will then be available to answer any further questions that might arise leading up to the big day.
