Destination Wedding in the Athenian Riviera – Florence & Gildas

I met Florence and Gildas in June of 2014 on a holiday trip they spent in Greece. They were looking for a wedding coordinator to turn their dream wedding into a reality. A small intimate wedding with only their close friends and family at the Athenian Riviera in early Spring 2016.

From the beginning I loved their fresh ideas and the importance they placed on their guest having fun at the wedding, interacting with each other and participating in the couple’s celebrations.

First we designed a ceremony which involved the interaction of many guests, with readings, music performances and sing alongs! Then guests spent the cocktail hour playing games like Ring Toss, Ladder Ball and Croquet while others had the option of socializing and taking photos before the beautiful natural Aegean sea backdrop!

Dinner was followed by speeches which involved many surprises from guests to the couple including funny videos of their lives together, quizzes created by the bridal party for guests about the couple and of course some moving speeches from the parents of the bride and groom.

For the décor we designed a theme that was whimsical and colorful like the couple itself, enhanced with natural details so that the reception would feel like an informal backyard fête.

The gorgeous moments below were captured by the talented, George Pahountis! Enjoy!
