STUNNING AL FRESCO DESTINATION WEDDING ON SPETSES ISLAND
What a perfect way to end this warm and sunny spring month than the absolutely stunning al fresco destination wedding on Spetses island that i’m sharing with you today by photographer Anna Roussos. One of my favourites island in Greece Spetses, is a small car free island, part of the Saronic Islands just off Athens. The town of Spetses is its only large settlement and nearby islands include Spetsopoula, Falkonera and Velopoula. Maria & Bill’s beautiful outdoor wedding was elegantly styled and planned by White Ribbon Boutique Events.
The bride said to us: "We knew when we decided to get married in Greece that we wanted to do something different and a little off the beaten path. Our desire was to show our guests a different side to Greece and the island of Spetses was just the place. The Poseidonion Grand Hotel is not only a landmark of the island, but the most elegant destination. It offered a touch of old-school glam against beautiful blue sea views, lavender blossoms in the garden, a grand staircase (perfect for our first look!) and the glass-tiled pool. As for our ceremony and reception, we really wanted something unique. We decided on Agios Georgios Church and the adjacent Zogeria Beach. The secluded destination, lush greenery and gorgeous waters of the Argolic Gulf were the most idyllic backdrop. Our guests witnessed were transported to Zogeria (accessible by boat only) on the Buona Fortuna boat and witnessed our traditional Greek Orthodox ceremony at the most charming white washed church. Post ceremony, we ventured down the breathtaking path to our beach party setup. The soft color palette really accented the natural beauty of the setting along with the dance floor off the water and the string bistro lighting. The fireworks were the perfect ending the evening as guests danced the night away!"
