Today we are taking you to the stunning shores of Greece for the most elegant and striking styled shoot created by Vicky from Fairytales Come True. With the Sounion Temple of Poseidon as its backdrop it really does deliver the wow factor. With beautiful and original scenery it really does show you how amazing Greece is for a destination wedding. We are dying to get on a plane for a visit now!
Vicky talks us through the concept for the shoot…
“The purpose of this styled shoot is to inspire couples who dream of making a wedding elegant, beautiful and chic, in harmony with Greek philosophy, and urge them to put on their wedding map the Greek sites. The blue of the sky and the sea, the green of the olive tree, the golden sun and the pink sunset, can create an incredible setting for a dream wedding made in Greece.
This little corner of the world, full of history and beauty, is one of the best locations for a chic and elegant wedding, because it can combine modern with traditional, romantic with earthy. The most legendary location where the only saved temple is dedicated to Poseidon, the God of the sea, offers one of the most wonderful sunsets in Athens, giving you dreamy memories.
Every detail of this styled shoot highlights the aesthetics and character of an unforgettable wedding, exactly what each couple of us requires… The wedding bouquet is tied in a chic way with pink garden mayra’s Kenya roses, white o’hara garden roses, white bombastic spray roses, veronica and astilbe, olive leaves and eucalyptus. The wedding favour is an elegant and chic bottle filled with the gold of the Greek land: pure virgin olive oil. The sweets are macarons, cake bombs, hand painted biscuits, vanilla cup cakes, French meringue and two-layer cake are all hand painted with golden and green details of edible materials, with romantic aesthetics and modern technique and the wedding gowns are elegant ethereal fabrics of chiffon and lace. The hand drawn invitations with a distinctive olive branch, are a symbol of peace and immortality. All the details have synthesized the ideal canvas of this wedding fairytale by the sea and were captured remarkably by the photographer’s and videographer’s lens.”
We ‘d like to thank Vicky and her wonderful team for sharing this with us. It really is making us think of warmer climates!
