From Think Happy: This most romantic and artistic styled shoot took place in the historical old mansion of the Kinsterna Hotel. This amazing old structure, built during the 17th century close to the picturesque Castle of Monemvasia and renovated completely with respect to its architectural history, is the inspiration point for this beautiful result. Every detail was well cared for, with natural textures, traditional patterns, and Greek elements.
Based on Greek products and the Greek word of hospitality “filoxenia”, we created a welcome gift for the guests with extra virgin olive oil, traditional drink tsipouro, organic honey and a bergamot scented candle. The scenery of the olive groves combined with our almond blossom arch, gave a magical touch to the ceremony, while sun rays passed through the branches and created an exquisite atmosphere. The couple walked through the wine yards and the citrus groves, along with their white horses and had the chance to feel the peace of Mother Nature.
White hyacinths, pink almond blossoms, deep green olive branches & eucalyptus were the starting point for our wedding color palette. At the ancient cistern with the goldfish and the lilies, a luxurious dinner table with unique flatware and lace plates, decorated with lots of flowers and vintage gold candleholders has been set up for the guests. Clear glass boxes with gold details, again olive branches and traditional Greek wedding sweets “koufeta” were the wedding gifts.
The old Venetian wall of the central building of the hotel was the perfect backdrop for the dessert table and the blush pink tulle running all over the vintage furniture created an artistic effect. All the desserts were designed on the concept with organic nuts and fresh berries, under favorite Greek flavors. A dream wedding, in a dream place, with a dream team!
