There is something inherently ethereal about the islands of Greece. The great mythology of Ancient Greek gods and goddesses has been around since the 700s BC but still today the islands whisper of celestial beings and awe-inspiring landscapes that are out of this world. Perhaps Greece is our own little taste of heaven right here on earth.
It's no wonder why we love the idea of getting married on the famous island of Mykanos, with its rugged natural beauty and cyan-coloured ocean. Some say the pull to this part of the world is almost spiritual, that its beauty is romance for the soul.
Love 4 Weddings have coordinated this stunning wedding inspiration shoot that captures the fantasy of Greece perfectly. The colour scheme of indigo blue and copper accents is the perfect reflection of the sea with a touch of something heavenly.
Styled by Rock Paper Scissors, the shoot is full of chic decorative elements. An abundance of luscious florals, fresh linens and copper tableware create an ultra-stylish island escape.
The timber picnic tables are covered in colour: copper charger plates, mosaic-like side plates, slices of crystal and bright blue goblets. Even the cake is decorated with colourful crystals. While much of the styling is modern, there are also sentimental elements, including traditional coffee and the iconic white walls of Greece.
The bridal bouquet, floral centrepiece and altar arrangement are lavish and vibrant. The blooms are handpicked and consist of astilbe, peonies, garden roses, delphinium, dahlias and more.
Shoot coordinator, Eleni from Love 4 Weddings described some of her favourite details: "The carefully curated wedding inspiration had so many unique decorative details such as the handwritten Pablo Neruda poem backdrop at the ceremony, the customised tambourines wedding favours, the DIY bar stand with the magnificent blue hued signature cocktails, the indigo watercolor wedding stationary with copper foil… seriously too many heartbreaking beautiful details to behold…”
The Grecian goddess vibes continue through the bridal gown. The equally feminine and sexy dress features a dramatic full tulle skirt and leafy vine embroidery with beading details. The groom's navy suit is well tailored, paired with a crisp, classic white shirt and a very cool wooden bow tie. The fashion is modern, sophisticated and well suited to the overall style of the shoot.
Set at the Rocabella Hotel in Mykonos, overlooking the bay, these images prove that you don't have to forfeit quality or design when you leave your country. The chic destination wedding that you're dreaming of is indeed a swoon-worthy reality.
