Inspired by the beautiful and majestic colours and textures of the endless western greek coastline, super talented destination photographer Giannis Vrachoritis shared with me this pure and elegant editorial whilst demonstrating that less is more when you have such gorgeous landscapes to play with. If you are dreaming of a beach wedding in Greece, scroll down and snatch up the most elegant wedding ideas!
Giannis Vrachoritis said to us: "Are you in a mood to dissolve in the skies? Dreaming of waves crashing on the beach on your wedding day? Let me just tell you this was exactly what I had at heart while deciding to curate and capture this minimalist shore-pretty wedding styled shoot.
Greece is so blessed with endless niches of natural beauty every season of the year, but as an old neo-romantic destination wedding photographer I just had to pick this sweet spot at its most languid, right before barefoot luxury seekers come swarm its sandy coves.
And what does shore-pretty wedding minimalism mean on my book? I’m talking modern yet romantic, with chic and delicate elements mixed effortlessly by Nikos Moschopoulos who brought together modern tableware with a delicious palette of crisp whites alongside warmer tones of yellows and greens, to encapsulate all of the feminity and romance of a wedding celebration.
Fine art papergoods and stationery suites by the imensely talented Chirography were a fresh layer to a tried and true classic like the beach wedding, with delicate calligraphy, wave texturing, and watercolor drawing depicting our very backdrop, the little wood cabin on the coast, soaked in natural light.
My muse, the oceanfront bride to be Nancy, looked perfect as she walked with the golden light resting beautifully in sandy pockets. Instead of giving her the casual wedding dress, we decided to go for a loose alternative, a peachy two-piece outfit to match the setting and tone of our inspiration shoot, that brought a little extra romance to the coast.
We envisioned a bridal makeup with soft, glowing skin and natural strokes of creamy peaches (a bride wants to feel special on her big day and rose gold photographs perfectly), and gentle eyelash extensions by the talented Giota Iliadi, as well as an unstructured hairstyle to echo the flowing movement of the waves.
I love the depth and soft shadows along the shoreline on my wedding photography and the milky light we were so blessed with that day is the reason why. I hope you enjoy what this team created. My gratitude to all and each and everyone of you!"
