Luxury Wedding at Grande Bretagne

Luxury weddings have a certain quality and need weeks of detailed preparation beyond imagination. During this Luxury Wedding at Grande Bretagne, we loved every single step of the way! Between you and us, the ballroom of Grande Bretagne Hotel awakens the princess gene to all of us!

This couple stole our hearts from the very first moment. We have planned their wedding to be truly elegant with small touches of luxury but since they also wanted it to be fun and absolutely a party we cared for some extra details there too!

The Orthodox ceremony took place in one of the biggest churches of Athens, Metropolis with 250 guests attending. Construction of the Cathedral began on Christmas Day, 1842. Workers used marble from 72 demolished churches to build the Cathedral’s immense walls. Three architects and 20 years later, it was complete.

Welcome drinks and dinner party followed in the multi-awarded 5 star Hotel of Grande Bretagne with breathtaking views of the fabled Acropolis, regal Syntagma Square and the Parliament, lush Lycabettus Hill or the original Olympic Stadium. We cared for all the details of this golden Luxury Wedding at Grande Bretagne! Our compelling dessert table, the trio jazz group and the marquee letters with couples’ initials set the tone for this picture perfect winter wedding, during welcome drinks hour.

The ballroom of Grande Bretagne Hotel formed the perfect palette and we enriched it with gold tall centerpieces with white flowers white and gold tones, in our furniture, flatware and centerpieces. The hanging installation over the dancefloor full of white wisterias and the disco ball was another great hit that everyone enjoyed till early morning hours and made sure to be a loud one with the custom party horns they found on their seats. Who said that winter weddings are not a must?

Situated right in the heart of the city since 1874, the landmark hotel is an important part of the history of Athens.

Given that within the walls of Hotel Grande Bretagne, history is unveiled through myriads of antiques and art masterpieces, the historic landmark graciously offers its guests a museum experience.
