Symbolic ceremony at Mikri Santa Maria Beach Paros – Christos and Nicole

In the last decade Greece and in particular islands like Santorini, Paros, Mykonos and Folegandros have become famous wedding destinations for couples from around the world.

Nicole and Christos, both well travelled, had long ago decided that they wanted to have a simple, yet magical and elegant symbolic ceremony on the beach, but could not easily decide where. They have been visiting the different regions and islands of the country for years now, but Paros had always been one of their favourites for the simplicity and peace it has to offer.

They chose Mikri Santa Maria beach for their symbolic ceremony, where the water is crystal clear and there is hardly ever any wind reaching the small gulf. The rest of the details and decorations of the beach were magnificently organised by wedding planner Georgia from Wedding Paros. What is remarkable is that the couple had very carefully picked their wedding date; soon after sunset, Jupiter and Venus would line up for a unique celestial conjunction that could be seen and observed with the naked eye. Both were very elegantly dressed, but went barefoot to comfortably stroll on the beach and also feel the sand and water under their feet. Soon after the symbolic ceremony had finished, they had a romantic dinner under the wedding tent, accompanied by the sound of the accordion and having as a natural background the peaceful and velvety surface of the Aegean Sea.

Later on, when the beautiful scenery was only illuminated by the candlelight and the stars , Christos took out his acoustic guitar. The newlyweds started singing their favourite tune and you could feel all the love and romance coming from their happy souls.

The couple’s dream had become true and Cicada Studio is delighted to have been there to photograph this wonderful symbolic ceremony at Mikri Santa Maria beach!
