Rustic and whimsical vibes in the woods
When you mix a half-Greek, half-British bride with her planner soul mate, wedding planning magic happens! And when we are talking about a Kefalonia wedding… oh my!
A stunning hilltop with breathtaking views does not need much. A sea wood arch with simple, white flowers by Benetatos, bamboo chairs and the most loving couple make a ceremony unforgettable. This destination wedding was a fairy tale.
Jordan looked handsome in his grey suit. The lego buttonholes have something to say about the man’s mentality, don’t they? But no matter how happy and laid back one is, the sight of Effie walking down the aisle would leave them breathless.
Simple, elegant, stunning. A unique dress, boho yet fitted and elegant, simple make up, loose hair. This bride stepped right out of the Greek mythology, just ideal for a Greece wedding.
A photo shoot at Agrilia is simply iconic, the old bell tower, the gorgeous olive trees, the view. Where else would you want your love immortalized? And who else would you choose over Nikiforos Photography to capture these moments for you? The images speak for themselves here.
Then the reception. Rustic, whimsical, fairy-talish. Among the tall cypress trees, decorated with fairy lights, the round tables with the golden tiffany chairs needed nothing more than a few white flowers to look stunning. The entire feeling was dreamy, like you just walked into a romance novel!
The top table was simply out of this world. Heavy, rustic tables, combining gold details in the candle holders and the cuttlery with white flowers and lush greenery. Not even the images can do it justice. Pure elegance to bring out the best of the bridal party!
Our favorite detail? The Harry Potter loving duo included the most touching line of the book in their deco. “-After all this time?-Always.” Was featured on the menus, along with the horcrux symbol. Might be nerdy but it is romantic, nevertheless.
Our favorite moment? When Effie sang happy birthday on the mic to Carol, her planner! It is moments like these that really showcase the bond that is created between planner and bride. That is how we end up considering out couples lifelong friends!
Of course, no Kefalonia wedding is complete without a few tears. Effie’s dad could not make it to the wedding. So, the best man had a surprise for her. The most moving, sweet recorded message played, her father’s voice filled out the venue with words of love and blessings and not an eye was left dry.
And then everyone let loose! An amazing, loud party followed with dancing, singing and of course plate smashing! The bride led the way with a combination of Greek dancing and disco and soon everyone was on the dance floor! Cocktails, good loud music and the best of moods on a stunning Kefalonia location! What a party!
All the best, Effie & Jordan! Thank you for letting us plan such an amazing Kefalonia wedding for you!
