Festival Brides

The best way to start a new day is to smile. And today we have a great reason to be happy. One of the most elegant destination weddings that we have planned and organized in Greece, is featured in Festival Brides. April was so nice to us! The good news keeps coming effortlessly! If this isn’t a great way to open the new wedding season, we don’t know what would be. More luxury weddings are ahead and we can’t wait to share them with you during the summer.

Island Dreams

Lexi and Olly’s elegant boho greek folk wedding

As seen in Festival Brides:

Good morning babes, and welcome to another beautiful real wedding treat here on the blog today. This wedding is for all you free-spirited Goddesses that picture a wedding with blue skies, bursting sunshine and a Mediterranean view to die for! Lexi and Olly held their wedding on the island of Antiparos in Greece, at her brother’s family home. The pair worked closely with Greek wedding planners Rock Paper Scissors to achieve their elegant, traditional folk-inspired island wedding last summer.

Traditional Greek features and colour schemes (think nautical shades of blues and white) formed the basis of the decor, complimented by hanging fruits, foliage, olive branches and herbs….

We wanted to keep the decor very elegant and natural with elements of naivety and Greek folk tradition. The flowers were all white and green with island herbs and foliage mixed in, and the dinnerware was blue and white.

Dressed in the most gorgeous fabrics and bohemian lace, the bridal party took the day by storm in the most dreamy gowns. Lexi took inspiration from her Greek roots (she’s half Greek!) to accessorise her Inbal Dror dress – she wore ancient Greek-inspired jewelry and a bespoke gold leaf crown whilst her maids followed her, draped in traditional Greek Goddess style dresses.

We are totally in love with the photography style of this collection, mastered by Yann from Life Stories….

Yann Audic was fantastic! Both Olly and I hate really staged photos and love the natural look – Yann is a master at this!

We’ve included some of the pre-wedding beach disco shots too. We wish we were there for this epic pool party – it looks SO much fun! Here’s pretty bride Lexi to fill you in on all the details. Read more

Traditional Greek Wedding at Family Home

Bride: I’m half Greek, so I always wanted to get married in Greece. We were married in Antiparos at my brother’s house. We wanted to make a holiday out of it for our guests travelling a long way! Also, Antiparos is only one of two islands which you can legally get married in your own home.

We had many Greek elements including the traditional Greek folk band procession playing for my bridal entrance and Tamata favours (a religious votive offering, depicting hearts and Greek wedding crowns). I also had Aphrodite, the ancient Greek goddess of love, symbols of love and fertility (doves, myrtle flowers, shells, pomegranates and wheat sheafs) hand embroidered on to my veil by the incredibly talented Daisy Sheldon.

Beautiful Arched Ceremony

The ceremony on the roof was conducted under a beautiful flower arch overlooking the sea. We had a mix of readings, sage smudging blessings and the official legal signings. It is traditional on the islands for the bride to be accompanied to the church by a traditional Greek band.

Barbarossa Paros (the best fish restaurant on the island) catered all the food and it was amazing! Greek mezze, lots of fresh fish and seafood with herbs and big bowls of fresh salads. We really wanted to keep the feeling of our own big family dinners – the waiters served everything French style on big platters which allowed people to pick and choose what they wanted to eat at the table.  Read more…

Why we support Brides-to-be?

Part of our values in our company is focused on the empowerment of women. Being a Wedding Planning Agency for more than 8 years, we interact mainly with women. It is in our understanding women do so many things for their closed ones and wear plenty of hats in their life. They are mothers, wives, sisters, businesswomen, daughters, best friends, care providers, lovers, entrepreneurs and so much more…  Women’s Day is a celebration for women’s rights and freedom. Therefore it’s our duty to honor our own gender.

Brides-to-be are superheroes dressed in wedding gowns. Only if you have planned your wedding you can comprehend the tremendous pressure a woman has to endure in order to have the wedding of her dreams. Has to satisfy two completely different families, while she keeps so many balls in the air! We wish to provide a break from this challenging process with our Giveaway: 2 hours of free consultation.

About Women’s Day Celebration

International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8 every year. It is a focal point in the movement for women’s rights.

After the Socialist Party of America organized a Women’s Day on February 28, 1909, in New York, the 1910 International Socialist Woman’s Conference suggested a Women’s Day be held annually. After women gained suffrage in Soviet Russia in 1917, March 8 became a national holiday there. The day was then predominantly celebrated by the socialist movement until it was adopted in 1975 by the United Nations.

Today, International Women’s Day is a public holiday in some countries and largely ignored elsewhere. In some places, it is a day of protest; in others, it is a day that celebrates womanhood. Learn more here…

It is worth to mention that in Italy, to celebrate the day, men give yellow mimosas to women. Communist politician Teresa Mattei chose the mimosa in 1946 as the symbol of IWD in Italy because she felt that the French symbols of the day, violets and lily-of-the-valley, were too expensive to be used effectively in Italy.

In the United States, actress and human rights activist Beata Pozniak worked with the Mayor of Los Angeles and the Governor of California to lobby members of the U.S. Congress to propose official recognition of the holiday. In February 1994, H. J. Res. 316 was introduced by Rep. Maxine Waters, along with 79 cosponsors, in an attempt to officially recognize March 8 of that year as International Women’s Day. The bill was subsequently referred to, and remained in, the House Committee on Post Office and Civil Service.

As of 2019, International Women’s Day will also be celebrated as a public holiday in the city of Berlin, Germany.

Love is Love

Could be just a glance, could be a touch or even after a strong argument. You don’t know when love will hit you and definitely you can’t make any plans for it. But when it’s there, you know it! Be aware and brave enough to embrace that special feeling. It happens without prior notice and usually when you least expect it… Open your heart and let love work its magic.

Say Yes I Do

Express your love every day and work on the tiny details that can make your loved ones smile. A kiss at the back of their neck while he or she is cooking, tells more about your affection than 2 dozens of red roses. A small hidden note that he or she can find in the middle of their day can light up their world. Say yes to all ups and downs, hold tight to that feeling of your warm kisses and be supportive to each other when the situation has gone wild, is way more bonding than any valentine-themed-chocolate-box.

That deep feeling of “we are together no matter what” comes with some surprising truths about life. Even under the most challenging times, love can hold both of you in that special circle of trust and safety that only solid relationships have accomplished. Surviving the first two years of marriage and still feel genuine love and respect for your spouse, it worths all the celebrations that you can think of. If a couple can stand the profound transformations that they go through the first years of their marriage, they deserve to party hard.
