Glittering Gold & Burgundy Inspiration

The Story: The brilliant light and unique blue sea of the Greek coastline was the inspiration for this styled shoot. Minimalistic elegance is combined with a striking modern colour palette of gold, burgundy and pink. The intentionally restrained décor allows the Athenian Riviera to shine.

The Location: Ble Pavillon & Ble Azure, a unique coastal and beach wedding venue in Athens. This chic venue is at Alimos Beach, 30 minutes away from the centre of bustling Athens. A dreamy natural landscape surrounded by the Saronic sea, this is the perfect wedding venue for thalassophiles (i.e. lovers of the sea).

The Vibe: Cool coastal vibes melded with a warm Hellenic touch. Natural elements, such as wooden furniture, were used to add an organic feel and tie the styling back to the glorious seaside setting. Gilded décor added a sense of luxury and a nostalgic nod to the rich history of the ancient Greek empire. 

The Details: Stunning florals were the star of the show. The venue is filled with generous luxurious natural flowers. David Austin Roses, orchids, hydrangeas, pampas grass, eucalyptus and a variety of other blooms and greenery were used to adorn the ceremony space and tablescape. On-trend shades of pink (including salmon and dusty pink) and rusty orange were used to add a softness to the gold and burgundy palette. Our bride wears an A-line white silk, billowing dress, perfectly fitting for a beachside wedding. A mobile bar was set up for cocktail hour on the beach.


  • The circular wedding arch uses a simple but elegant gold frame adorned with floral arrangements to create a perfect ceremony backdrop for a lawn wedding.
  • Think about the lines and symmetry when styling your event. The three-level wedding cake was plain and simple in white coloring with golden details, while the wedding dress had the exactly same elegant line. 
  • The tablescape combines crystal and porcelain elements with elegant gold accents to create an elevated and luxe look.
