WHIMSICAL WEDDING ON SPETSES ISLAND
Today we feature a wonderful wedding in Spetses by photographer fiorelo and the wedding planner My Best Wishes Events. Spetses is a small but aristocratic island near Athens where cars are forbidden and the only means of transportation is the carriage! So this is how the beautiful couple from Cyprus arrived at the church, accompanied by traditional live music. The reception took place in a large Bedouin tent beside the sea, decorated with bright lights garlands. The magnificent centerpieces with white freesias and roses along with the greenery from the hydrangeas and fresh herbals like rosemary balanced the table decoration in neutral tones.
From the wedding planner: My beloved Stephanie & Christopher who live in Cyprus, decided to host their wedding in Greece. The picturesque island of Spetses was the chosen destination that the couple decided to celebrate their love among dear friends and family.
The ceremony took place at the charming chapel of Agios Mamas by the by the sea. Both groom & bride arrived in a traditional carriage accompanied by local musicians. Being a talented architect, the groom, loves minimal lines, modern colors and different textures. Different shades of grey and beige colors along with some elegant gold touches were used in the decoration of the wedding.
The dinner party was held on the beautiful beach of Vrellos, under the pine trees overlooking the blue crystal clear waters of the sea. A Bedouin tent decorated with magical light garlands, hosted long family style tables that we decorated with grey cement platted bottles and square mirror vases full of white freesias, vanilla roses, grey hydrangeas and rosemary bouquets. The set up was completed with lots of crystal vintage glasses filled with lots of candles that made the atmosphere magical. Following the tradition, each guest had his own “kissing bell” for the newlyweds had to kiss every time the bells were ringing!
The couple arrived at the beach in a traditional Sea Taxi and the dances and festivities started from their entrance and last till dawn! It was an amazing party, filled with love, happiness, smiles and fun! Stephanie and Christopher thank you so much for your trust and your love! May you always have all the love! It was an honor being by your side on this beautiful, unforgettable night!
