Sheera and Tom got married, then celebrated in a big way, on a secluded beach in Kerasia, Corfu. Blake was privileged to be there to photograph the wedding itself, as well as the welcome drinks the previous evening in Kasiopi.
This was not only an incredible wedding of two people so clearly made for each other, but for many guests it was an amazing holiday too. Friends and family flew in from five continents, such is the love and admiration felt for Sheera and Tom, who planned what seemed like a week-long party for everybody to get to know each other before the wedding itself. There were brave and inspired musical choices, sheep on spits, cats on canvases, and grandma Enid’s being with all her grandchildren together for the very first time… such a special moment.
Through her work as an internationally acclaimed journalist, Sheera knows A LOT of photographers, so this made her choice to bring us to Corfu even more of an honour for Blake, but also slightly ramped up the pressure when the day before the wedding she warned, “Don’t worry, but there’ll be six professional photographers there, and a couple of Pulitzer Prize winners.”
Mazal Tov again to Sheera and Tom, their beautiful families and their enigmatic friends. It was our pleasure to work with Lorraine and Yiannis from Corfu Wedding Planner as well as Alekos the Corfu DJ, for the very first time. Also on the scene were our friends the brilliant Chelm and Jake, a hairdressing super-couple based at the prestigious Hari’s in Chelsea, whose wedding we were also privileged to shoot. Here are some of our favourite shots from an awesome day…
