Today we have a beautiful photo shoot on the island of Ios, shared with us by photographer Anna Roussos. We have to admit that the mind-blowing view from the magical Ios Club reminded us of the much photographed Santorini view, so our first thought was that Ios might be the new Santorini! If you want to combine vacations with your wedding we can’t think of a better alternative than Ios, a stunning Cycladic island with countless breathtaking beaches that are waiting to be discovered.
Ios Club was decorated in an eco-friendly, boho style giving us an intensely stylish dosage of island wedding inspiration. The fresh colorful flowers steal the show and make a lovely contrast with the surroundings’ white and earthy colors. Every detail from the food to the stationery was absolutely in tune with the theme and the destination.
This elopement looks like a dream that can easily come true in Greece!
From the Ios Club owner: In the center of Cyclades Islands, between Mykonos and Santorini, lies a small jewel: Ios Island. We selected this hidden paradise because of its kilometers of unspoiled sandy beaches, turquoise waters, picturesque villages and spectacular sunsets! A fairy tale scenery for our inspirational styled shoot! Our venue, Ios Club, situated on top of a rocky hill next to the ancient temple of Apollo, offers a breathtaking view of the Aegean Sea and an even more stunningly beautiful view of the sunset. The bohemian-chic style of our shoot ideally combines with the minimal architecture of Ios Club, the rocky surroundings and the amazing color palette of the sky, to create a truly unique outcome that the lens of the charismatic photographer Anna Roussos perfectly captures.
From the team of vendors: All the gorgeous decoration details and flowers were carefully chosen by The 12 Events wedding planners. The invitations, favors and traditional wedding breads were created by the talented Be My Guest team who always incorporate in their creations, the Cycladic spirit, such as the characteristic whitewashed walls of the typical cycladic house depicted by a stroke on the invitations and favors. The superb macramés and dream catchers were hand-made by the young Athenian artist Boho Choco. The elegant wedding gown comes from the Costarellos Collection and the hand made wedding shoes are from the Italian brand, Madame Pivot, that specializes in tango and wedding shoes. The team of vendors is completed by the Santorini-based Spicy Bites caterers who created the scrumptious and beautifully-presented Mediterranean dishes. We truly hope this photo shooting will inspire many brides planning their island wedding and make them want to discover Ios island and what it has to offer.
