An Elegant Beach Wedding in Athens

When a Spanish guy, met an Italian girl in Zurich and decided to get married in Greece!

This love story was sealed after Christian’s proposal to Melania in Porto (Portugal), on the top of “Torre dos clerigos” with the magnificent view of the whole town. They wanted simple yet elegant details for their beach wedding and we promised them they would get them. And they were so happy we kept, of course, our promise!

 

Couple’s Words

We met in Zurich (our hometown) and got to know, and love each other, during a wonderful summer. Our proposal happened in Porto, Portugal, on the top of the ‘Torre dos Clerigos’ with a view over the whole town. Our wedding in three words? A romantic, unique and funny, beach wedding. We had personalized marriage vows, and chose Ellie Goulding, Burn as the final song for the ceremony, as it reminds us of when we first met.

From RockPaperScissorsEvents Greece…When a Spanish guy, met an Italian girl in Zurich and decided to get married in Greece! This love story was sealed after Christian’s proposal to Melania in Porto. In their short visits to Athens they showed us how much they loved Greek food (meze), Greek company (Groom has so many friends from Greece) and of course the lovely location we suggested, for their beach wedding.

They wanted simple yet elegant details for their wedding and we promised them they would get them. Some details we loved: the canopy set up on the beach, bride’s personal dream that came true (She arrived on a horse, its name was Omerta!), the balloons guests set free after “I do”.

Everyone had so much fun and all the guests were really moved by the love of this couple.

Even with the help of the most skilled planner, and most talented vendors, it can be difficult to create a day that feels authentic, romantic and fun.

But Cristian & Melania’s beach wedding in Greece was just that, and then some.

And it was captured, so beautifully, by Elias Kordelakos Photography, one of the most renowned wedding photographers in Greece, and styled by leading event planners, RockPaperScissors.

With a backdrop overlooking the Sea, in the pretty Athens suburb of Glyfada, Cristian & Melania got married at Septem private beach club.

Their wedding on the sand was a personal and intimate affair, with guests welling up as Cristian walked his beaming mother down the aisle, and Melania arrived on horseback, in her stunning backless Pronovias wedding dress.

And afterward, they partied long after sunset, with a gorgeous seaside reception decked out in the prettiest blooms, and most elegant decor.

Ever considered getting married in Greece? This beach wedding might just inspire you to go for it!
