With these archetypal Greek elements, and with the dominant presence of marble, we set up a Hellenic styled shoot in a traditional vineyard of Attica, in collaboration with the wedding planner duet E.M for you!
Marble, the favorite material of Greek sculptors and architects, was featured in the cake (by The cakers), the reception menu, the sous-plat and the wedding invitations by atelier invitations! The selection of tableware was simplistic and elegant, with black details like the bijoux supreme dragees by Hatziyiannakis, and the white blooms by Antoinetta Koutsouradi! Antoinetta, the florist who has become a regular partner in our styled photo shoots lately, also selected Greek foliage of ivy, eucalyptus and lysian.
G wedd photografia also captures the details of black grapes, apples and plums, seasonal fruits from the Greek land…
Everything was framed around the real-life couple of Andreas and Maria! While Andreas was styled in a tailored suit with the signature of the Gentlemen Experts by Atelier Zolotas, Maria was dressed in white, wearing the Amalthea and the Galatea wedding dresses, from the Hellenic Vintage Essence collection. These handmade gowns were chosen because of their extraordinary design simple lines -principal characteristics of the Greek architecture and philosophy.
The warmth and intimacy of the couple made up for the low temperatures during the photo shoot! The bride was transformed into a Greek goddess by the hands of Eleni Stamati.
The result was a perfect connection with the spirit of the Hellenic Vintage collection! I’ll leave you to it!
