Another beautifully designed wedding by Your Lefkada Wedding team. A surprise wedding for the bride, carefully planned by the groom and the wedding professionals involved, that is modern with traditional Greek elements.
Get inspired by the photos captured by Lefkada Photo and let yourself travel through them to the enchanting Greek island of Lefkada.
We asked Eszter, from Your Lefkada Wedding to tell us all the details behind this wedding. “Elopements and secret weddings hold a dear place in my heart; they certainly deserve to be celebrated and loved as much as a big wedding. As we all know, planning a wedding is an exciting and creative process – this time the groom went through it alone with us and his now-wife had no idea… neither did their invited friends.”
“It could carry risk, but Gabor’s confidence was reassuring and he was right, Petra and their guests were over the moon about the idea. We knew the bride loved Greece and would be happy with a ‘Greek themed wedding’. We really wanted to avoid visual clichés (such a beach side wedding with shells), so we designed a wedding dominated by Greek designer pieces and custom made decor items in a modern environment. Since the couple was planning a ceremony in their home country, I didn’t want to choose a wedding dress for her by surprise. I picked a embroidered KORI dress from Land Lefkada and this characteristic piece became also the starting point for the design.”
“Her aquamarine wedding ring can remind her for the emerald blue water of Lefkada. The main elements of the wedding decor were the handmade calligraphy and fresh flowers in fresh summer color palette that adorned the place perfectly.”
What advice would Your Lefkada Wedding team give to couples getting married soon? “The groom, after giving me some instructions, gave me freehand in styling. It was easy to plan and he could focus on keeping his secret and organise the trip. Petra was so excited yet stress-free, during the getting-ready where she and her bridemaids got make-up and hair, she understood that it was her wedding day and she enjoyed it to the fullest.”
“It’s good to trust your wedding organiser and team and just let the day flow and be in the moment.”
