Ethereal Grecian Bridal Portrait Inspiration in Athens

SO MUCH BEAUTY. I know, I know I say that a lot, but this time it’s fo’real. Because when it comes to the unparelled conversation-worthy gorgeousness that is Athens, well it is totally justified. And thanks to Vasia Photography, sitting in THE VAULT is one of those galleries that requires an extra dose of pinch-me-please due to all the pretty, because frankly it’s just that dreamy.

From Vasia PhotographyWe wanted to share with you an inspiration shoot that we photographed earlier this year in Greece!

Our approach to this shoot was to show the beauty and simplicity of a traditional Greek village, and to tell a story of a bride on her wedding day and the connection she has to her home.

Pláka is a beautiful old historical neighbourhood in Athens clustered around the slopes of the Acropolis. Incorporating a labyrinthine of beautiful whitewashed streets and neoclassical architecture, it is home to many generations of Athenians and akin to a traditional Greek village, despite its city-center location.

It is custom in Greece for brides to be married in the church of their community, making bridal portraits in their home town very common. Inspired by the beauty and simplicity of the surrounds of Plaka, we imagined a bride on her wedding day walking these streets, connected to her family and land. The striking Rue de Seine gown contrasts against the white walls of the narrow streets, the olive in her bouquet mimicking the detail in her dress.

Other details:
– Her traditional hair piece is purchased from a local Greek market.
– The daphne flower in the bridal bouquet is local to the area

This shoot was in preparation for a fine-art photography workshop we’re holding in Greece, the next one is in May on Santorini! The premise is exploring Aisthētiké – Greek for the philosophy of the nature of art, beauty, and taste; the creation and appreciation of beauty.

Romantic Spring Wedding Inspiration in the Greek Mediterranean

When it comes to Greece, gorgeous is quite the understatement. The proof? This captured editorial from the lens of Yiota at Les Anagnou Photographers. Crafting a romantic frame graced with unequaled natural beauty, this inspiration whispers wonderment. See it all in the gorgeous gallery, here!

From Yiota at Les Anagnou PhotographersWe are true lovers of film photography, so we were thinking for some time with my husband that film would be a perfect match to the blissful setting of the Greek Mediterranean. 

We reached out to the talented wedding planner Harilena Giatra from “Live Love” and she was very excited from the very first moment to do a photo shoot that would fulfill our initial thoughts! Her creativity and the whole team working on her side was just perfect and we were very pleased with the whole approach and how attentive everyone was, down to the last detail.  
Our goal for this editorial was to create a genuinely romantic frame for a memorable wedding that would whisper softly to the hearts of the guests…More here: 

We chose CASA e CAMPO by Dipnosofistirion event venue in Athens, for its mesmerizing location oozing with unequaled natural beauty. Upon arrival in a beautiful garden surrounded by olive trees, tall cypress trees and lush vegetation reminiscent to the Mediterranean basin, the azure blue of the large swimming pool serves as the ultimate antithesis and captivates the eye.  
 Since we are officially in the heart of springtime, we wanted to gloriously accent the wedding’s décor with white rose bouquets embraced by delicate beige lace that was perfectly executed by Red Box Days.

The wedding invitation created by Atelier-Invitations places guests right in the mood with its romantic calligraphy and its shades of pure white and mustard. The reception tables are set in light and warm earthy colors upon which features the fine white porcelain dinnerware highlighted by a golden-bronze touch. The art-de-la-table is teamed with ultra fine crystal champagne and wine glassware, plus, impressive cutlery with a golden-bronze finish, all provided by White Lilac. The elegant furniture used in the photo shoot were provided by ZaZoo Event Rentals.  

The tender blue pure cotton napkins placed within the dishes in the shape of a bow, constitute the colorful detail of the romantic concept. Cheese varieties and grapes within the setting were prepared by Dipnosofistirion catering, constituting the most appropriate gastronomic accompaniment to the selection of exuberant local wines that are to be served. The marvelous wedding-cake was created by Criollo Pâtisserie. 

The bride launched a minimalistic wedding dress by Madame Shou Shou with large bow and open back which fell loosely right down to the ankles. Hairstylist and make-up artist, Spiros Samoilis, created a chignon and kept the bride’s make-up simple in a way that manifests the innocence and romanticism a Mediterranean wedding entails. 

At the end of this magnificent photo shoot, the whole crew was marvelously dined and wined courtesy of Dipnosofistirion catering. It was such a delight for all of us to finish the project with such delectable tastes!

Boho Chic Winter Wedding Inspiration

We’re only half way through Monday m’dears, and it’s already shaping up to be a gorgeously festive week—and there’s sooo much more pretty to come. But right now? Might I suggest stealing a few moments to admire this utterly lovely gallery from Anna Roussos? With a burgundy and berry pink palette, lace for days and desserts far too beautiful to eat, The Event Company and Love4Wed effortlessly raised the bar with every pin-worthy detail. See more here!


From Love4WedThere are many days that I seriously have to pinch myself to make sure I am not living a dream! One of the many highlights that come with the territory of being the editor of a wedding blog, is that I get to work side by side with amazingly talented wedding professionals and together create wedding prettiness just like the following boho chic winter wedding inspiration!

Every single detail from this gorgeous shoot was nothing short of perfection and was captured brilliantly by photographer Anna Roussos. The shoot took place in the Nasioutzik Museum, a unique wedding venue just outside of Athens, Greece and wedding planner Anna Sourbati flawlessly curated all the decorative details, capturing the location’s natural rustic beauty in the most beautiful way. In the floral decorations, she incorporated a variety of gorgeous flowers such as blush pink roses, white hyacinths and red alstroemeria. Beautiful burgundy fall leaves were blended with grey and red eucalyptus leaves adding a special touch to the lush floral arrangements. The wooden tables were adorned with dusty rose and grey linens, vintage clear old fashioned glassware, white candles and fresh season fruit that undoubtedly added more color and texture to the table top. The burgundy subtle touches that were used on the lovely wedding stationery gave a more wintery feeling, yet kept the boho chic style. My favorite details… the scrumptious desserts and especially the naked caked that was decorated with blush garden roses!

The boho chic winter wedding inspiration was completed with a romantic and ancient Greece inspired two piece wedding dress designer by Katia Delatola. The dreamy wedding dress was made with French Chantilly lace and flesh colored silk muslin. The burgundy velvet belt complemented the look of the wedding dress and added a slight contrast.

The idea behind this beautiful winter wedding shoot and the collective goal was to create such and an amazingly pretty winter wedding inspiration that it would make brides think twice about planning their wedding during the spring and summer period. The shoot was such an incredible experience and I was so fortunate to have worked with such talented people and create… this little piece of winter wedding heaven!
