Surprise wedding in Lefkas

…when modern meets traditional….
 
Elopements and secret weddings hold a dear place in my heart; they certainly deserve to be celebrated and loved as much as a big wedding.
 
As we all know, planning a wedding is an exciting and creative process –  this time the groom went through it alone with us and his now-wife had no idea… neither did their invited friends. 
 
It could carry risk, but the Gabor, the groom’s confidence was reassuring and he was right, Petra and their guests were over the moon about the idea.
 
The groom, after giving me some instructions, gave me freehand in styling, so he could focus on keeping his secret. 
 
We knew the bride loved Greece and would be happy with a ‘Greek themed wedding’. We really wanted to avoid visual clichés (such a beach side wedding with shells), so we designed a wedding dominated by Greek designer pieces and custom made decor items in a modern environment.
 
Since the couple was planning a ceremony in their home country, instead of a classic white wedding dress, I picked a embroidered KORI dress from Land Lefkada and this characteristic piece became also the starting point for the design.
 
The main elements of the wedding decor were the handmade calligraphy and flowers in fresh summer color palette that adorned the place perfectly. 
Her aquamarine wedding ring can remind her for the emerald blue water of Lefkada.
 
Petra was so excited yet stress-free, during the getting-ready where she and her bridemaids got make-up and hair, she understood that was her wedding day and she enjoyed it to the fullest.

Enjoy Petra and Gabor’s very on trend set of wedding style images!

Elegant wedding in Lefkada

Minea&Lukas tied the knot on a sunny day of September with a romantic celebration of love, just the way they dreamed it!
 
Their wedding was all about elegance and understated sophistication. The wedding theme were transparency symbolizing honesty and loyalty in the marriage, therefore we used acrylic decor items, vellum paper and lunaria flower that we love for its ethereal, moonlight qualities.
We wanted to utilize this delicate dried flower to show that when designed well, dried flowers can be gorgeous and add a romantic elegance to bouquets and table arrangements. 
 
We could incorporate this floral design with its white hues at the old monastery where the ceremony took place and at the modern dinner venue, creating a visual bridge between the two different-style locations.
 
Also the tablescape was dominated by the muted colour palette: lunaria added an interesting textural element while brass items some glow to help bring it to life. We loved the cloud-like hanging and standing installations in the modern environment, with lunaria’s ability to soften a space as well as to add the perfect amount of drama with its translucent leaves without overwhelming.
 
Minea decided to have two wedding gowns, a classic one for the church and a modern one for the venue  – we fell in love with the couple’s style and the elegant chic wedding gowns of the bride.
 
Makeup was kept fresh and flawless and the soft updo was perfectly highlighted by the lunaria. We also loved the custom-made calligraphic veil worn on the couple shooting – telling their vows written on a veil was such a romantic idea.
 
Minea and Lukas’s smile says it all – their happiness shone and was shared with their guests.
 
We hope you all love this design as much as we do!

Boho wedding in Lefkada with an abundance of earthy colors and textures

Claudia is from New York, George is from Greece, they live in London and decided to get married in Lefkada.


Instead of a beach wedding they prefered to have a cozy celebration in an olive grove with earthy colors and charasteristic textures. Their wedding in Lefkas had all the key trends from this year by the way: pampas grass, peacock chairs, rug dancefloor, calligraphy and bohemian styling to name just a few, but it of course had all the emotions and a lot of love, too.

They tied the knot in the orthodox church of Panagia Vlacherna surrounded by olive trees and perfectly decorated with dried and fresh flowers. After the ceremony, the couple and their guests enjoyed a delicious meal at Apanemia luxury villa, that offered breathtaking view and provided a luxurious and comfortable space to enjoy.

The Your Lefkada Wedding team turned the villa’s olive grove into a wedding venue which is not only pretty and cozy but functional. It felt so great seeing guests enjoying it.

We were glad to see such a fiercely fashionable bride, wearing this  Rue de Seine bohemian wedding gown, carefully picked jewelry, the unique bridal fedora hat so effortlessly.

Whimsical, feathery and ethereal pampas grass makes a real statement when used as part of a wedding decoration. Due to its size, it frames other florals, like protea or orchids perfectly; and due to its neutral muted tones, it contrasts beautifully with wedding greenery such as eucalyptus. We also added dried palm trees, sunspears, wooden and brass items to enrich the textures.

The bride did a wonderful job handcrafting all their lovely bespoke stationery with cottonpaper, gold foliage and tassels.

I can’t list all the custom-made decor items and sophisticated details… I let you feast your eyes on this dreamy boho wedding in Lefkada through the following style pictures!

It was an honor to plan this wedding with such a demanding bride and be part of Claudia and George’s wedding day!

Mediterranean vineyard wedding in Lefkada

Spring is an adorable time of the year, full of fresh air, sunlight, blooms and energy. Let’s all take a mental vacay to the Mediterranean Vineyard of Λευκαδίτική Γη today and step into an idyllic setting by Your Lefkada Wedding team.

The winery is located in the heart of Lefkada / Lefkas island, yet easily accessible, surrounded on all sides by beautiful, topical landscapes of rolling hills, olive groves and vineyards.

The building has a timeless elegance and we wanted to incorporate this in all elements of the styling. The decorations were also chosen by using this approach in order not to take away from the venue, but enhance it.
Long table arrangements invite a more familial feel, while looking exceptionally romantic and cozy.  Olive branches, pomegranates, antique rose peonies and rosemary helped the beautiful floral design fit nicely with our overall color palette, the simple yet chic table settings and tan wood tables.

Appetizers were served in super-creative way (aka comfort food with a classy twist) providing a variety of delicious light bites and canapés like bruschetta or feta & shrimp cocktails. We can tell you these snacks were not only pretty but also super yummy. (;

Living in an era that any visual message is so powerful, the wedding stationery automatically becomes part of the couple’s aesthetic signature that sets the tone of the whole event rather than a consumable item therefore we paid attention to the details when designing it.

Real couple Polyxeni and Filippos were our models. She wore a minimalist dress and accessories by Greek designers, which were provided by local concept store ‘λ’ Land Lefkada. Thanks for the cooperation, our model has joined the long list of women who have decided to reinvent what it means to be bridal. More and more nontraditional pieces have been hitting the mainstream, not only when it comes to the dress but also jewelry or a straw hat as a statement piece.

We hope, for couples who love the charm and beauty of a destination wedding in Greece but want something unconventional, this editorial can offer a great inspiration. This winery, without a doubt, is a breathtaking venue for a cozy wedding. 

Big thanks to everyone below for creating such a beautiful setting!
