 Stella + Steve’s Wedding with Greek Wedding Photographers Birmingham

Greek Orthodox Wedding Photography by Documentary Wedding Photographer Stuart James

Back at the end of July, on my wedding anniversary no-less, I had the absolute pleasure of photographing Stella + Steve’s wedding. A Greek Orthodox wedding no less! 
Having photographed many Greek weddings over the years, I always look forward to them. With the traditions, the colours and the excitement, there is so much to photograph. Add in an Irish connection with Steve’s family, and two bands on the wedding night, you have the recipe for one fantastic day!

From the first time I met with Stella and Steve, I knew their wedding was going to be something special. With a couple as chilled out and up for fun as these guys, I knew I was going to love it! 

My coverage of Stella + Steve’s wedding started with the preparations at the parent’s house, capturing the dressing of the groom and groomsmen, ahead of the traditional ceremonies.

From the relaxed preparations, it was soon time to get traditional! 
There are so many traditions during the Greek Wedding day, the start of which is the shaving and dressing of our groom.

I was interested to see how ‘gentle’ the boys were going to be with Steve, as a non-greek…not so gentle it turned out!!

Following the Greek dances, it was fabulous to see a change in the evening, with the arrival of Kellys Heroes. Combining the Greek entertainment, with the Irish Folk entertainment was a genius touch, which everyone loved!

Alas the end of the night was soon upon us! But what a wedding this was!

I loved getting back to photographing Greek weddings – so much fun from start to end!

Stella & Steve, a huge congratulations once again! And Stephen, thanks for your coverage on the night with us too! Loved that you raced straight from a wedding with Barry James at The Moat House, and indeed straight back too! What a pro!!
