From Ellwed

You may have noticed a slight shift in the wedding industry to follow the eco-conscious trends. This time our team has prepared this neutral color spectre inspired editorial which is also celebrating the Greek nature and eco-friendly ideas with less fresh florals which were locally sourced and more dried flowers and foliage which can be reused for any occasion later on!

 

As winters in Greece are mellower, especially in Athens, where it could snow a bit every two or three years, we wanted to show what you could do for your winter wedding in Athens! You might not be able to have the winter wonderland wedding in the Greek capital, but surely you can have your dream wedding in one of the many Greek Manors and Vineries like our Pyrogos Petreza! Greece is the land of wine and some of the best Greek wines are also sold internationally. Therefore, you probably know some of the multiple wineries Greece has to offer as a wedding venue already. However, just because your venue is the rustic chateau, you do not need to have a rustic wedding if that is not your style! You can certainly do almost anything you wish at the gorgeous location like our Pyrgos Petreza. Together with Ellwed, the team of Mosaique Event Planning & Design, went for this eco-friendly monochromatic look which could fit on a beach or in the rustic stone chalet or chateau! Working closely with Two Clicks Photography and Aggelos Lagos Filmmaker who captured every detail of this gorgeous wedding editorial to inspire you!

Hair accessories are all the rage these years and we believe floral crowns will be having a comeback! Think of a different way and make it grand because you deserve it! Be the queen of your special day and even if it’s only for few hours. All the floras and the suspended-over-the-table floral structure was created by our florist Comme Ça – Fleurs & Décor all in the same color schemes as well. All the arrangements, flower crown and the bridal bouquet were made with less fresh flowers, we used Roses and large chrysanthemums. The rest was filled with variety of dried foliage like Pampas grass and dyed baby’s breath.

 

The season of sparkles and of course the ultimate wedding dress by Vasia Tzotzopoulou was our first choice for this shoot! This beaded 2 piece dress was exactly on point for this style. The dress can be perfect for your chic beach wedding, glam party in the city or in our case sophisticated chateau manor wedding! The ability of this 2 piece dress is that you can alternate the skirt for pants or even change it to more casual skirt for comfort after the ceremony is over. We paired our groom with the suit in the same cream ivory color by Gentlemen Experts of Atelier Zolotas who styled our groom with must have accessories like leather belt, leather handmade shoes and special cufflinks.

 

The attention to details was seen also in the overall event style. The special wedding bands and engagement ring by Iordanis Jewelry matched seamlessly with the uniquely designed stationary by Atelier Invitations. Accessorize your event with many cakes! If one cake is not enough, choose many smaller cakes! We went for three smaller tubular tall cakes which had their own cake stands and the designated and decorated location to be admired! Forget the candy bars or candy tables, think of the sophisticated cake stations like this one fitting with your wedding theme!

 

Our makeup and hair stylist Giorgia Xristodoulou took special care of our star bride Ioanna Sarri and her groom for the day Nikos Daskalo to look gorgeous from head to toe on every picture! If romantic eco-conscious elegance is what you desire then this editorial styled shoot should be the inspiration for your wedding! The whole shoot was structured by our planner super duo Nicole and Celina from Mosaique Event Planning & Design while Two Clicks Photography managed to capture everything to perfection!
