When I found out I had the opportunity to photograph a wedding in Greece, excited wasn't the word! I'd finally got a destination wedding and it was the best.(Apart from being ridiculously hot 24 hours of the day). We must have sweated our own body weight by the time we'd finished photographing but it was all worth it! Kristen and Alwyn were so laidback and enjoyed their day surrounded with their close family and friends. Read a little more from Kristen below...

"How did your other half propose to you?Tell me all about it…"

We went back to where we first met – Abersoch.  A beach proposal!

"You're engaged! What was your first job on the to do list?"

First job was to book the venue!  He proposed on the Friday and the venue was booked by Monday ha!

"The date...What date did you go for and why did choose that time of year?"

4th August – we wanted a summer wedding because it was going to be in Rhodes.  Also because I’m a teacher so it was during the summer holidays.

"Booking your venue is a huge part of your day. Where was your venue and why did you choose it?"

We got married at St. Pauls bay in Rhodes and then on to a rooftop overlooking the sea for our meal.  I had visited Rhodes several times prior to the wedding and fell in love with its chilled-out vibe. 

"The Dress… Please tell us all about finding your perfect dress."

It was the first dress I tried on and kept going back to it!

"Did you have a specific theme/style you were going for?"

We didn’t really have a specific ‘theme.’  It was just a relaxed destination wedding!

"Each wedding is unique so what were those ‘special touches’ you decided to have that represented you and your other half?"

Our favours were – fans from Etsy with our names and wedding date on and cufflinks for the men with their initials on them.  We also had wine glass charms which were really cute!  

The bridesmaids and I wore sandals under our dresses as they went with our destination theme and was easier for us to walk on the beach! The men wore braces and bow ties. 

"How was your experience with me?"

We couldn’t have chosen a better photographer for our wedding.  Erin made us feel so comfortable and at ease throughout the whole day.  She captured some amazing moments and got every shot we wanted.  Not to mention, she happily travelled to Greece to capture our special day!

"What was the most nerve wracking thing about your wedding day?"

Walking into the ceremony – however I feel like I was pretty calm for most of the day (I can’t say the same for Alwyn!!)

"What was the best part of your day?"

Absolutely ALL of it! We particularly loved spending some quality time together on the boat trip back to the evening venue. 

"Who cried the most?"


"What was your first dance song? And why?"

I’m yours – Jason Mraz. 

We just both liked the song and liked that the beat wasn’t too slow. We didn’t really have ‘a song’ together.

We walked down the isle to ‘Can’t help falling in love with you – Elvis’ because Alwyn LOVES Elvis!

"Any last advice for other fellow bride-to-be’s out there?"

Make some time for just the two of you throughout the day.
