From the Photographer… The team of blog “Getting Married In Greece” and I, organized this fine art editorial shoot, inspired by Ancient Greek history. For the setting of the shoot we chose one of the most important archaeological sites of the Acropolis, the surrounding area of the Odeon of Herodus Atticus, which to this day stages plays and operas with excellent acoustics. According to mythology Goddess Athena gifted the first olive tree to the city of Athens on the Acropolis, so the tree’s unique color was combined with the white marble and defined our color palette. The stunning wedding dress was picked for its unadorned, clean line while the bridal style was completed by the flower crown made of olive twigs and white hypericum berries and the lace up sandals. The tabletop was composed of an aged linen tablecloth and soft grey towels while the modern oxide cutlery contrasted the classic china and matching glasses. The custom stationary line was created using calligraphy and olive tree details on a unique hand cut paper. The naked cake was created to complement the shoot concept and was decorated with fresh olive twigs and flowers. The florals of olive and various white summer flowers subtly completed the fine table decoration while the wedding bouquet was also similar in its hues.
