Whimsical wedding in Stone villa, Rhodes

My post today concerns an absolutely lovely couple who I worked with to plan a very special wedding! All the guests were travelling from afar, some from South Africa, some Australia and some from the UK! The couple wanted to create a beautiful setting for their guests to enjoy their day, with really traditional Greek food and many whimsical and rustic elements that complemented their chosen venue!!!

So plenty of fairy lights, coloured candles, rustic wooden chairs, set against crisp white linen tablecloths and lots of handpicked flowers were used to style the venue! The simpler CD player with carefully chosen music from the couple set the tone for the meal and the DJ took on the job of getting everyone on to the dancefloor afterwards.

The civil ceremony was held in the walled courtyard of the house, this ensured complete privacy and was a very plain background that accentuated the brides chosen hot pink colour palette.

The food was served meze style in the centre of each table and the evening started with a bottle of ouzo so everyone could get a taste. Next there was a BBQ of meat and vegetables. Finally the couple chose to serve ice cream in cones which everyone loved and a selection of honey soaked greek pastries in tiny bite sizes.

The evening was a great success and finished with the bridal party going out to get souvlaki in the early hours after all the dancing and then eating it on the terrace until the sun came up!!!! (sigh) just perfect!!!
