Surprise! We have another destination wedding in Greece for the third day in a row. We started on the island of los for Sossan and Niko's colorful Greece wedding, traveled to Barbati Beach for Bianca and Robert's Vogue style wedding, and today we will head to Sifnos for Katerina and Dominique's exquisite seaside wedding.
Sifnos is lined with sandy beaches and warm, crystal clear blue seas. Besides the warm water, Sifnos is also known as the best Greek island for food, drink, beach bars, and seafood taverns. While Sifnos is an exciting place to visit for vacation or honeymoon, it is also a stunning location for a destination wedding, which you will see when you scroll down to view this classic wedding by the sea. Vasilis Kouroupis photographed their day. You can see all the images in the full gallery here. You can also watch the beautiful film below.
The Monastery stands at the south-eastern end of the island in the Faros area. It was built in 1650, and is actually built on a small islet joined with the rest of Sifnos with a bridge.
Inside the monastery, there are cells which serve as guest houses. According to an inscription, the great Greek poet Aristomenis Provelegios stayed in one of them. Next to the monastery area there is a pretty sandy beach ideal for swimming and a couple of taverns offering Sifnos recipes and fresh fish. Sounds amazing!
The Town of Sifnos
From Vasilis Kouroupis -Dominique loves photography and it was very important for them to dedicate enough time to make to take many pictures as possible! After the ceremony, we went to the town of Sifnos and took lots of portraits in the little whitewashed streets and corners.
After that, we practically followed the setting sun, driving higher and higher on the island where there was still sunlight (and the view was magical!). Natural sunlight and golden hour is my favorite way of lighting my pictures. Plus, the sun always makes people happy and it gives the beautiful bright effect and the cheerful photos I love capturing.
The reception was held in Lazarou Beach – must-visit location if you’re visiting Sifnos. The seaside reception was blooming with flowers and pretty details curated by Think Happy Events. The couple danced, kissed, cut the cake and toasted all while the summer breeze made us all hope for the future.
From Vasilis Kouroupis - What I really enjoyed with Katerina and Dominique and their wedding in Lazarou Beach, Sifnos was the complete confidence they had in me in capturing their wedding. It was obvious how in love they were and what a great time they had with each other. They were full of joy, constantly bursting out laughing together their eyes filled with the glimmer of love. You’d think that by now I would be immune to getting emotional but no, each time is like the first one, always a sucker for a good love story and a couple that can’t ( and won’t) stop kissing each other. Katerina and Dominique, I sincerely wish you a long and happy life together – you deserve it.
