Today’s elegant gold wedding inspiration is a beautiful classy affair that oozes romance in every detail. Its Mediterranean setting probably provides a helping hand to achieving this, but the delicately elegant details have been perfectly curated to produce the ultimate classic look with just a hint of gold.

We are true lovers of film photography, so we were thinking for some time with my husband that film would be a perfect match to the blissful setting of the Greek Mediterranean.
We reached out to the talented wedding planner Harilena Giatra from Live Love and she was very excited from the very first moment to do a photo shoot that would fulfil our initial thoughts! Her creativity and the whole team working on her side was just perfect and we were very pleased with the whole approach and how attentive everyone was, down to the last detail.
Our goal for this editorial was to create a genuinely romantic frame for a memorable wedding that would whisper softly to the hearts of the guests.
We chose CASA e CAMPO by Dipnosofistirion an event venue in Athens, for its mesmerizing location oozing with unequalled natural beauty. Upon arrival in a beautiful garden surrounded by olive trees, tall cypress trees and lush vegetation reminiscent to the Mediterranean basin, the azure blue of the large swimming pool serves as the ultimate antithesis and captivates the eye.
Since we are officially in the heart of springtime, we wanted to gloriously accent the wedding’s décor with white rose bouquets embraced by delicate beige lace that was perfectly executed by Red Box Days.
The wedding invitation created by Atelier Invitations places guests right in the mood with its romantic calligraphy and its shades of pure white and mustard. The reception tables are set in light and warm earthy colours upon which features the fine white porcelain dinnerware highlighted by a golden-bronze touch. The art-de-la-table is teamed with ultra fine crystal champagne and wine glassware, plus, impressive cutlery with a golden-bronze finish, all provided by White Lilac. The elegant furniture used in the photo shoot were provided by ZaZoo Event Rentals.
The tender blue pure cotton napkins placed within the dishes in the shape of a bow, constitute the colourful detail of the romantic concept. Cheese varieties and grapes within the setting were prepared by Dipnosofistirion Catering, the most appropriate gastronomic accompaniment to the selection of exuberant local wines that are to be served. The marvellous wedding-cake was created by Criollo Pâtisserie.
The bride wore a minimalistic wedding dress by Madame Shou Shou with large bow and open back which fell loosely right down to the ankles. Hairstylist and make-up artist, Spiros Samoilis, created a chignon and kept the bride’s make-up simple in a way that manifests the innocence and romanticism a Mediterranean wedding entails.
