Nina and Ales’ Idyllic Beach Elopement in Lefkada
Despite having to cancel their initial plans, Nina and Ales were still able to bring their dream wedding into a wonderful reality. Thanks to the expertise of Lefkas Weddings, this couple celebrated their big day through a secluded beach elopement in Lefkada.
From the enchanting sceneries of Kathisma Beach to the dreamy arrangements by Gourioti Flowers, Nina and Ales’ private event is oozing with so much beauty and romance. Who would have thought that this elopement took only one month to prepare?
Nina and Ales wanted a private beach wedding in a location where they could marry and enjoy their honeymoon. The couple initially planned an elopement to Mauritius, but with the impact of COVID, they had to rethink their idea.
To realise their dream of marrying on the beach this summer, they contacted me at the start of June to see if it would be possible to marry at the beginning of July in Lefkada, Greece.
This romantic couple made their intimate ceremony in the soft light before sunset at Kathisma Beach on Lefkada’s west coast. Over 1km of sand stretches along the coastline, lapped by the Ionian sea’s seemingly endless blue waters. We know which exact spot to select to ensure a secluded and private moment for our couple.
Nina and Ales celebrated with the award-winning Kir Yianni Estate Akakies rose and delicious pavlova with summer strawberries. These two were beaming with happiness, and we cannot help but fall in love when Ales invited Nina to their first dance as the sun sets behind them.
I knew that Nina wanted a pink theme, and when we discussed ideas during our meeting, the couple was adamant that it should be a romantic style. For this elopement, we used various pink tones: from blush and light pink to fuchsia.
Nina asked us for romantic, so I decided to fill the elopement with lovely floral details. We gave Nina a flower-decorated hand fan to keep her elegantly cool. Ales chose a bow tie so we made him a dapper floral pocket that matched Nina’s floral hair comb.
We filled the arch and her bouquet with peonies, roses, astilbe, lisianthus, and wax flowers. To achieve their ideal theme, we mixed white, blush pink, pink, and fuchsia for an added pop of colour!
Each year (from May and onwards), Lefkada welcomes couples from all over the world who dream of marrying on an unspoiled Greek island. This July elopement was especially notable as it was the first destination wedding of 2020 to take place after the COVID lockdown.
