Going To The Chapel


On Thursday I posted photographs from a local Greek restaurant, The Fish Market. My blog friend in Greece, Costas, left a very nice comment and a link to some interesting finds in his country. I promised him that I would post some photos from the chapel at Holy Trinity-Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church, just for him! As you can see, this is a beautiful little chapel.

I will be photographing a friend's wedding in this chapel soon. I went last week to check the lighting and do a "dry run". I have never shot a wedding before so I'm a little nervous. The bride and her family are dear friends and I want to do the best that I possibly can for them.

Thank you Virginia for these photographs and your nice comments on my blog. This chapel really has an original Greek-Orthodox touch.
I would like you to have a look at a few photographs of a really old church in my village in Crete. Just a few meters from my old family house. The inside is really interesting. I wont say any more and let you to judge.

It is a lovely chapel-- one of my favorite Birmingham places!

And you'll do a great job at the wedding!

How exciting for you. You can miss in such a beautiful setting with a glowing bride and her groom.

Seems as if you are beginning career "number 2". Good Luck.

Mad
Of course I misspelled bonne and had to ask GT for a little help with one sentence. Amazing how much you can get around with a limited French vocabulary! As you well well know, I read it better than I speak it, but that's not saying much!

Please don't elevate me Wedding Photographer just yet. This is a small wedding and so I'm just helping them out. Pray that I don't get furious with the tripod and sling it down the aisle!
