  • 2. �������������������� A wedding... your wedding... A moment in time. A ritual. A passage. A defining experience and a deeply per- sonal memory. A communion, a celebration, such a spectacular, momentous occasion. A dream that every couple visualizes, imagines. The problem for the couple: how to realize this dreamed event without ruining the experience for oneself? How to abandon oneself to the emotional dimensions of the experience if you have to plan and organize? If I don’t do it, then to whom will I entrust such an important event? Anne Fournier, ‘‘As an art photographer and videographer, I have been absorbed by the beauty of candid yet heightened personal realities whose evocation of the human dimension is strongest when framed by ritual and consciously willed, both individually and communally. Designing them for me is a deliberate art-form and a meeting point, a highly rewarding way to make my living and allows me to establish a deep contact between a land I love, the people it attracts and the arts and crafts involved in planning and commemorating high moments of human experience. The creative moment of designing with the client and executing on their behalf the experience of the event. Capture the essence of the desire, the vision of the event. Coming from photography has allowed me to see things with a critical eye from the inside, much like a reporter. I know the elements, the planning stages and the criteria in execution that can make or break a wedding event. Each wedding is different, offering new challenges and new rewards each time. A story to be explore, a perspective to be discovered together with my client. It has allowed me to understand the affinity for location, timing, people, desires and expressions which is required to plan and pull off a great wedding, and the continuous search for in- spiration in the beauty and emotion of a timeless event. I look forward to being your wedding planner and photographer ’’...

We put together a basic offer which we submit to you within ten business days maximum. Then we talk... and, once we agree on the fun- damentals and price of your package, we can proceed to setting down the terms of our association, signing the relevant forms and agreements.

Finally, we cap the evening off with further entertainment, traditional dances, re- betika... and then the castle is transformed into your private discotheque-club with the professional Dj spinning your favorite sets into the wee hours of the night.

A very special atmosphere therefore awaits you as you and your spouse are brought to the opposite port by fishing boat [orthodox variant: arrival @ St Konstantine church], spe- cially adorned for the occasion, where you will mount two proud horses, for a fairy tale ride down the beachfront, led by a fine company of traditional greek musicians in folk ceremonial dress.
