mykonos wedding

From Whitestories Events “When we decided to have an island chic wedding inspiration shoot, we knew that Mykonos was the perfect destination. Mykonos is located in the Cyclades block of islands in Greece and is famous for its beauty and luxury lifestyle. The picturesque landscapes of the island, the pure white of the Cycladic architecture, the amazing beaches with the blue sea and the rocks surrounding them, inspired us to design a chic wedding styled shoot!”

“We combined some traditional Greek style elements, such as the furniture and the welcome gifts, in contradiction with a luxury art de la table set up with platinum detailed plates, vintage silver cutlery, crystal glasses and many silver decorative items for the flower arrangements. Our color palette was based on white, blush pink and burgundy.

We opted for white as the main color for the flowers, perfectly matched with greenery and some distinctive flowers in blush pink. the result was really fresh and elegant. We gave emphasis to the details, beginning from the stationery where we mixed calligraphy and minimal writing, using mainly blush pink and burgundy.”

“The amazing sandy beach of Super Paradise in Mykonos was our choice for the wedding ceremony. We set up an arch with driftwood and a selection of white flowers and greenery, in order to harmoniously blend into the natural landscape and the colors of the island. The bridal dress and the groom’s outfit in neutral colors with attention to simplicity and elegance, gave another refined touch.”

“The reception of our styled shoot took place in the stylish LYO Boutique Hotel, located at the upper side of the beach of Mykonos Super Paradise. The hotel combines Myconian tradition mixed with modern touches of contemporary design, creating a sophisticated rustic look that exhales Cycladic island spirit. It was exactly what we needed for a reception with many different elements and a contradictive set up.”

“We designed a welcome stand with traditional Greek gifts such as cherry liquor and mastic, some refreshments and spoon sweet which is served in Greece as a gesture of hospitality. The next spot was a luscious dessert table, with many different desserts, candies and a delicious naked cake, all served in silver items. The dinner table was decorated with luxury silver plated dinnerware, crystal glasses and an amazing centerpiece with many different style of flowers. We used details such as name cards, menu cards and favors with the Greek wedding treats called koufeta.”
