With its grand design and bold excess the city of Athens was just the right wedding destination for two London-based, Greece-loving doves like Eleni and Emilios. Their Island Athens Riviera luxury wedding in dusky pink tones upped the ante on the sphere of Athenian weddings this summer, as their big-Greek/British affair brought romance to this glamorous venue.
Nowhere does the sea around Athens feel more inviting than on Island Athens Riviera stretch of rugged coastline, where the sun dives pink into azzure waters. Eleni and Emilios had a very clear vision of what they wished for their 250 guests : chic all the way, complete with dusky pink charmand tons (literally) of great food.
We suggested Island Athens Riviera, for its various hang-out spaces, ideal for long partying overlooking the sea – it’s no surprise that this venue remains the height of wedding fashion. We brought together Michelin-starred chefs, bay seclusion bliss, amid a blizzard of florals and ornate candy – see their big bold candy station below- and a long firework show that kept everyone with bated breath! From the bride’s bouquet throw and on it was party, party, party till the wee hours.
