The color palette we went for was electric blue with splashes yellow and turquoise.

We designed the floral backdrop, in such a way so that it resembled a peacock standing still. ‘A thousand eyes’ feathers beautifully incorporated into the whole flower arrangement together with bright blue orchids and a touch of yellow protea. Along with natural pampas grass and tropical leaves. It stood on a round gold arch which tied perfectly with our theme.

The dinner table consisted of the same flowers arranged laid in a garland onto two gold stands. Tabletop decorated with peacock ‘body shape’ jars filled with Santorini’s characteristic black sand and tall pampas grass and feathers. Turquoise candlesticks and candle jars laid on the handmade pleated runner which opened up like a tail on either end of the table. The tableware was also in the color palette and designs reminiscing a peacock, with gold rimmed glassware, gold flatware and napkin folded in similar forms together with menu and name cards to complete the table set up.

The décor consisted of various different handmade items which we made ourselves, such as the feather fans, the pleated runner, both elements resembling a peacock’s tail, as well as minimally decorated feathered trays.

We created simple geometric designed stationery items to match our concept, and added a touch of flair in each of their titles.

Inspired by the very trendy boho style peacock chairs which we had planned on using, we wanted something eccentric that would speak volumes, and so a peacock theme came into mind immediately. Its mesmerizing colors and the "thousand eyes" on its tail endorse distinction and good luck, and enhances one's protection and awareness. 

 The peacock also symbolizes beauty and the feelings of love and attraction. A beautiful bridal bouquet in a similar form of a tail, together with a hairpiece which completed the final look of the bride in her stunning dress.

The thought of a long and airy dress adding a theatrical note to resemble a peacock’s eccentricity, was a perfect choice, as it intensified the natural movement and symbolism of a peacock with its large tail lifted up.

desert table

The dessert table was set up at the wall of the broken down 600-year-old windmill, beautifully decorated with various feathers, leaves and pampas grass in black sand filled jars, in a minimal way as not to steal the show of the luscious desserts and cake. The golden hues from the sunset made it fantasy-like.
