ARISTOCRATIC WEDDING IN PELOPONNESE
Greece is a country with over 2,500 islands and a vast coastline! The wedding featured today took place in Xylokastro, a seaside town in the Peloponnese, in the magical garden of the historic villa of poet Angelos Sikelianos, a unique architectural building, designed by the poet himself in 1916. Wedding planner La Fete organized every detail of Coralie's and Fabien's unique wedding. The wedding ceremony took place in the town hall, but the couple could took full advantage of the beautiful seaside of the location, and took their oaths on the beach in the presence of their 20 closest friends and relatives. The fairytale night was complete with a private dinner in the villa’s garden!
From the wedding planner: The setting; the poet Angelos Sikelianos’ Villa. When I saw it for the first time I knew we had to organize a wedding with such an architectural masterpiece as the backdrop… The wedding was that of Coralie and Fabien and it was like a dream!Coralie called me one day on my mobile and said, I want to get married in Greece. The guest list will be a total of 20 people! We will only have 3 days. I want it to be by the sea and for the theme to be aristocratic!” Immediately my mind went to the Sikyon Coast! We booked the Xylokastro Town Hall and we started planning the wedding! In collaboration with Athena we designed a beautiful bamboo construction which we set up on the beach. The exchange of vows would take place there in an intimate ceremony with just the sea and champagne! In the rooms the invitations awaited the guests along with the weekend’s instructions and a wedding favour containing ouzo and rose ‘loukoumia’ or turkish delight. The bachelor party was to be held at a seaside beach bar in Kiato. Preparations began on Sunday morning. The Mayor of Xylokastro married the sweet couple while we were present for translation into French! Dinner was served at a chic Italian restaurant with a special menu served by candlelight and with classical music. The father of the bride opened a Bordeaux kept in the cellar especially for his daughter's wedding day. After Coralie and Fabien cut the cake, dances and cocktails followed at the beach bar.As the evening came to a close, guests lay in the beach cabanas gazing at the stars!
