This all started many many months ago when I received a call from the amazing wedding planners ‘Wanderlust‘ with the news that Namita and Matt were looking for a destination wedding photographer for their dream wedding at Château Diter in The French Riviera. After several emails and some feedback, we touched base on Skype and hit it off straight away.
Namita and Matt explained to me that their dream was to have fun in the South of France with their friends and family who were coming from all over the globe and they needed the right photographer to capture their story. At this point I knew we were a match. Their wedding celebrations took place over 3 days with an amazing Indian themed welcome party, the wedding day and a very chilled out closing brunch.
Their style was sophisticated, elegant and fun. Namita is a pure natural beauty which will only require elegant, simple portraits of her in the most stunning preparation rooms. Matt is a cool cat, lean as an athlete who visually complimented Namita very well. This said, this is all surface talk, when the important things to focus on is their journey and experience.
Wanderlust not only provided us the best support but they also designed the most beautiful looking backdrop for the wedding. Perrine Guyonnet from Missrose created such beautiful floral art as always and her team produced the most stunning floral ceiling.
The following post is of the main wedding day with the Indian wedding soon to follow. Being an international wedding photographer can at times have it’s drawbacks but times like this make me remember how lucky I am to follow people around the world and chase their dreams with them. It is not right to not mention the fact that I could not have done anything you see below without the help and support from my brother Yiannis Alefantou from www.alefantou.com was and has always been by my side second shooting with me for the past several years. Your love and work is just the best.
I would like to wish Namita and Matt all of the very best for their future as Mr and Mrs and thank them again for their trust and hospitality.
