Immerse yourself in the bride's preparations, surrounded by her bridesmaids and the symbolic power of mirrors. For more relevant work, head over to our Thrace collection.

A Glimpse into Ancient Wedding Customs

Witness the fascinating custom that takes place on the eve of the wedding. The bride, accompanied by her closest female friends and relatives, gathers for a special ritual involving mirrors. One member of the group holds a mirror up to the bride's face, allowing her to take a last look at herself before embarking on married life. This ancient practice stems from the belief that a woman's reflection is her soul, and by glimpsing herself in the mirror, the bride ensures the preservation of her soul, safeguarding it from any malevolent spirits that may seek to steal it away.

Mirrors: Guardians of Tradition

Experience the enduring power of tradition as the bride's party, dressed in exquisite local traditional costumes, partakes in the mirror ritual. These mirrors become guardians, honoring the customs of the past and paying homage to the bride's ancestors. As the bride's maids of honor hold mirrors during the pre-wedding preparations and throughout the wedding day, they symbolize the connection between the present and the rich cultural heritage of Evros.

A Captivating Portrait of the Bride

Behold the bride, her face reflected in the mirror held by herself. The mirror becomes a portal through which her beauty and anticipation are captured, while the bridesmaids stand alongside her. This black and white photograph conveys the essence of a bride's transformation, capturing a moment of introspection and anticipation amidst the vibrant traditions of Issaakion Village.

Preserving Heritage Through Art

With black and white photography wall art, embrace the allure of Greek culture and heritage. These captivating images not only celebrate the mystique of mirrors and the wedding customs of Issaakion Village but also serve as a testament to the enduring power of tradition and the profound beauty found in preserving the rituals of the past.
