A Botanical-chic wedding styled shoot!
Pyrgos Petreza is surrounded by rich greenery, various Mediterranean plants, high oaks and cypress trees. Also well known for its winery and olive garden, is one of the most popular and welcoming venues in Attica. The main structure was constructed by all kinds of reclaimed materials: railway tracks, old woods, stones, beams, tiles and marbles, found at the region and nearby abandoned houses.
Being there, so far from the busy city of Athens, countryside capturing our imagination, we decided to create an elegant and chic botanical atmosphere for the shooting. Our color palette was natural shades and creams, with a touch of color, such as light green and blush pinks.
The circle/ring- a strong wedding symbol for unity and eternity, became our inspiration for every small detail, from stationary and favors to the delicate fern crowns used for the decoration.
For the table setup, we chose subtle table linens, colorful glassware, country-style porcelain plates, laces, embroideries and jar-candles to give that peaceful, rustic feeling of the countryside. Tulle favors and lace crowns designed to serve also as napkin rings, completed the refined tablescape.
The elegant and romantic bridal gowns, by our favorite Christos Costarellos, made this photo-shooting more vivid and stylish and totally continued the floral theme with delicate laces, embroideries and flowing full-length skirts. Our talented florist, Kostas Korakas from Red box days, chose a lot of foliage, eucalyptus mixed with orchids to have a fresh, dreamy and graceful effect. The highlight of the shooting is the specially hand -made, absolutely stunning tree decorated with orchids and foliage!
Four uneven pedestals were richly decorated with flowers, while the fabulous cascading bridal bouquet enhanced the romantic feeling. The centerpieces were high crystal vases topped with amazing flowers and the bridal table decoration included a table runner, made of green foliage with tiny white flowers and orchids.
At the entrance, the rough wooden table was decorated with burlap and lace runners, branches, lanterns and various sizes of botanical glass bell jars filled with succulents and orchids. For the candy bar/wish table we selected a 19th century pastel mint-green antique boudoir once belonging to an old Corfu manor house.
A flower decorated naked cake, vintage-inspired cookies and mini-donuts were made especially for the occasion by cookie Box to get that vintage feeling. The scrabble board, the old-school telephone, the nostalgic wish-cards, the traditional cake stands, the classical copper pots, and the mini glasses with succulents added a whimsical yet romantic feeling to our candy bar. I think the pictures speak for themselves, thanks to our talented photographers who were there to capture the feeling!
