Elopement in Athens Greece | A Fairytale Destination

Elope in Greece from Istanbul

Elopement in Athens

Elopement wedding in Athens

 Cagla & Ozan are a young, full-in-love couple.

The smiles between both are like dreamy fairytale scenery!

They wanted to have a unique experience and organize their elopement in Athens, Greece.

A little further from their beloved city Istanbul, where they live permanently.


So they decided to get an elopement in Athens and specifically at the Athens Turkish Consulate.

Also, we had a next-day photo shoot session in the historic Athens triangle the same day after their wedding.

Includes the entire area around the Acropolis of Athens:

These locations are the ultimate destination for millions of tourists every year from all over the world.

The next day of their wedding, they organized a short trip as a “honeymoon” to a Greek island.

The most popular of the Aegean islands, which belongs to the Cyclades, Mykonos!


Mykonos is the number one cosmopolitan island of Greece. Celebrities love traveling to Mykonos.

Has the best beaches in Europe, a luxury lifestyle & accommodation, privacy, parties,

impeccable concierge services, high-end shopping & gastronomy, and a soul-filling experience.


Mykonos isn’t only for wealthy people.

It is an expensive island to spend your summer vacations, but there are options for all budgets.

You will have to choose between a luxury beachfront villa or a luxury accommodation at affordable prices.

It is also worth mentioning the following:

The couple had thought of other European capitals for their elopement.

But the Embassy, in cooperation with the Turkish Consulate, according to helping them a lot, as they told me.

From the first moment, maximize their wish that elopes becomes a reality.


Especially with the many restrictions that exist due to the covid virus and other bureaucratic issues.

Shortly before the wedding ceremony, they proposed and waited, if they wanted,

for the couple to make a live stream from their mobile phone to share their joy with their families.


Something they had not thought of before and which they did.

As a result, parents and friends who could not come to Greece due to covid could watch their entire wedding live.

As a wedding photographer based in Athens, Greece, and anywhere globally,

it was not the first time I photographed a wedding at the Turkish Consulate.

What impressed me was once again their warm hospitality.


I suggested moving the ceremony table to another place to have more natural light.

They transferred it immediately without a second thought.

Some will say details, but for me, they are the ones who make the difference.

Finally, it is essential to mention that after the first contact with me regarding availability,

my Turkish assistant in Athens did all the email exchanges.

She can write perfectly in Turkish, and of course, speaks Turkish fluently.


She was present on the wedding day at the ceremony and the photoshoot that followed.

It made my communication with the couple unimaginably easier and made them feel at home.

Overall I think it significantly upgraded their entire experience on their wedding day.


There is a unique reference to her in the evaluation made by our adorable and beautiful couple.

Of course, the translator assistant is also available for you if you wish as an additional service.

Kind Words

Ignatios' u internette araştırırken buldum ve çektiği fotoğrafları görünce hemen iletişime geçtim. O bizim için bir harika bir şanstı. Türkiye'den Atina'ya geldik. Hiç tanımadığımız bir şehirde nikah ve ardından photo çekimi yaptık. Bizi muhteşem mekanlara götürdü. Oldukça maceralı bir gündü. Fotoğraf çekimi esnasında çok rahat hissettik çünkü Ignatios ne yapmamız gerektiği konusunda bizi sürekli yönlendirdi. Onun enerjisiyle film yıldızı gibi hissettik. Paylaşabilmem için örnek fotoğrafları hiç gecikmeden hemen yolladı, hepsi harika ve profesyonel. Kalanları sabırsızlıkla bekliyorum. Tercüme konusunda ise bize yardımcı olan asistan sevgili Toula'ya sevgilerimi sunuyorum. Nerede olursanız olun profesyonel bir çekim istiyorsanız Ignatios ve ekibi ile mutlaka tanışmalısınız.👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Çağla & Özan


I found Ignatios while researching on the internet and when I saw the photos he took, I immediately contacted him. It was a great opportunity for us. We came from Turkey to Athens. We had a wedding and then a photoshoot in a city we didn't know. He took us to amazing places. It was quite an adventurous day. We felt very comfortable during the photoshoot because Ignatios constantly guided us on what to do. We felt like movie stars with his energy. He sent sample photos right away so I could share them, all great and professional. I'm looking forward to the rest. I would like to extend my love to my dear assistant Toula, who helped us with the translation. Wherever you are, if you want a professional shoot, you should definitely meet Ignatios and his team.👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
