When France meets Greece lots of aromas and senses are combined and you have this dreamy Olive Green Wedding in Greece by RockPaperScissors Events.
Our couple chose Island Art and Taste for their wedding venue and there we had a beautiful ceremony and dinner setup. Their ceremony was one of the most sentimental we ever attended as it contained three or more different personal rituals the couple has prepared. During welcome drinks hour, guests enjoyed a luscious olive oil bar by the Greek style “kafeneio” area we staged. The party lasted long and our couple was more than happy!
This couple loves to travel
Both bride and groom live and work abroad, so with their celebration of unity, they got to gather their friends from all over the world and of course their big Greek family. Peloponnese is the ideal choice for couples who want to live a genuine Greek traditional wedding with all the family rituals and all foreign guests get to introduced to our customs and traditions. It was an unforgettable experience! We did everything in our power to maintain the character of a traditional fiesta.
Traditional Greek Wedding in Pylos
Church chosen was the one in Pylos the older castle of Navarino, called Palaiokastro or Palaionavarino and the more recent castle, called Niokastron.
Niokastro was built in 1573 by the Turks, and in 1686 was captured by the Venetians. It came again under Turkish domination in 1715, along with the castles of Koroni and Palionavarino. One of the most important buildings inside is the Church of the Metamorphosis (Transfiguration): Cross-in-square domed church dedicated to the Transfiguration of Christ. It was used as a Moslem mosque and was later converted into a Christian church. This is where the ceremony was held! You can only imagine the whole atmosphere.
Our bride was escorted by Greek traditional musicians and walked all the way from the entrance of Castle to the Church along with her family and best friends. The ceremony was something unique with all the blessings that followed from the priest and couple and guests embraced every single moment of the most important part of the wedding day. And the smiles of happiness were the living proof that these precious memories will be cherished for a lifetime.
We love details and this chair is definitely one of them!
ut getting ready for two weddings this weekend is really a challenge and logistics and project management are thankfully attributes we own, too!
Island names instead of table numbers are some of the twists we love.
But we can’t lie, we are fools for picture perfect tablescapes too!
Words from our couple
“We met 8 years ago, a friend of us introduce us to each other. It was love at first sight. 7 years after our meeting, Stephane asked me to marry him at the same place we kissed the first time. We got married at the Island in Athens. During our first year of the relationship, we came to Athens and party at the island and we found this place amazing so we said to each other, if we get married one day it will be here. ”
Always thankful for our dear vendors:
