Modern Elegance: A marble & copper wedding

Our couple asked for a minimal wedding so we came up with the mix of copper and marble. We started out with the minimal design of invitations by Atelier invitations and then also took it to our tables with the creation of a unique personalized favor made out of marble that also served as seating card.

Then we softened our minimalistic table scape by adding the abstract floral napkins wrapped with copper napkin rings, and the unique flower mix with King proteas, orchids, perla roses, eucalyptus, eustoma. Ceremony took place in the same venue under a unique arch where king protea flowers gave a lovely contrast to Greece’s blue skies. As we all know bar is truly important for a good party so our groom chose a whiskey bar and our bride a mobile prosecco bar for everyone to enjoy right after the ceremony. Decoration of the cake was prepared from our team’s florist and it was another of her wild creations of the day. It was a unique day followed by a great party! What more can a planner ask for?

Words from the bride: “We met 3 years ago on the 8th October, when I moved to Dubai. Lee already lived here for 3 years. It was one of those love at first sight moments where we knew we would end up together. We moved in together after a week of dating. He proposed on the 27th May 2017. I am half Greek -Greek Father & Irish mother. We have been going to Greece to visit my family every year. Lee loves Crete, the food the drink the people. We straight away said if we don’t have a wedding on a Greek island it needs to at least be next to the sea. Therefore, our venue of choice- Island Art & Taste. Planning a wedding from a distance is a big challenge itself, therefore a wedding planner is necessary. We wanted something very unique for our guests as 90% of them were travelling for the wedding. The personalised favour that also worked as a seat place name worked perfectly to showing our graditude for everyone that took the time and effort to come to our wedding. We straight away fell in love with the combination of the modern copper tones and the elegant shades of marble. The combination was exactly what we were looking for “Greek”, “Elegant”, “Modern”. My advice: Do create a playlist, favourite songs, guests songs, you wont be able to please everyone but it’s a start.”

Words from the Groom: We were originally searching for a venue in Greece that would really impress our guests and also provide an amazing backdrop for our wedding. Upon arriving at the venue on our wedding day I was in awe of how beautiful everything looked. I was even more stunned when my beautiful fiancé walked down the steps with her father and became my wife – I remember shaking so much as she looked so stunning.
