Soft, elegant shades and flowing shapes make the perfect silhouette for modern bridal portraits in Mykonos' heady, cosmopolitan Chora. This is where the spirit of the poets lives on. The bride sparkles with a flash of golden threads on the all-white canvas of the Paraportiani church. The sight instantly draws and holds the eye. In natural, naked feet she climbs the quicklime stairs to the wooden door of the sloping five chapels, which has been described as "a confectioner's dream gone mad". She's captured as organic and fearless. Against the backdrop of the light and iconic windmills, the bride channels a mood of liberation that echoes a romantic, Mykonos free-spirited elopement .
