La Vie en Rose: An Old World Love Story
A world where roses bloom is a world full of love. It conquers everything, even an abandoned Palace in an enchanted forest in Greece. In 1871, at the instigation of Ernest Ziller, King George I, bought the Tatoi estate. Nature and animals surrounded the two-story house he designed and built in Greek-Swiss architecture. After its completion in 1874, the royal family used it as its first residence. To Vicky, the wedding planner of Vicky Galata Weddings & Events, the palace in the forest stands for an old-world, full of chicness and romanticism. It has also inspired us to make compositions, with an emphasis on the grace love brings in our lives.
Our color palette blends in seamlessly with the environment. We used natural shades, such as ivory, dusty pink, and white, in addition to light blue and gray details for the table setting. Moreover, we have wished to convey a Parisian elegance, through the use of silver vintage details, old world stationery, and French-inspired decoration- Vicky’s signature style. For the flower compositions, Maria Viltanioti from Fillo Flower Studio, has combined different varieties of blooming roses with the greenery that can be found throughout the Palace estate, symbolizing a marriage between the old and the new.

These elements match perfectly with the groom’s blue, tailor-made, attire and plain white shirt.
A two-layered embroidered cake by Poulette Pastry, laced with sugar paste between the candles, and individual macarons with floral details, bring a French ambiance to the bridal table. The whimsical stationery, with its cotton paper, is covered with calligraphy and love letters, conveying a sense of the pure love of the past, when people used to express their feelings through letters and songs. The photo-shoot is similarly, an ode to authentic love, captured beautifully by Vessi & Yianni Simopoulos. Exceptional moments were filmed by Soft Focus Project and Oblivion Films, such as the one of the couple dancing to “La Vie en Rose” in front of the Palace.
We don’t find love, it finds us. But when that happens, the world is no longer the same. The roses bloom, the angels sing from above, words are a love song, and “La Vie en Rose” is always playing on the speakers.
