It doesn’t get better than this gorgeous modern wedding right on the beach! Dimitra and Vangelis chose to have their big day on Serifos, a small Greek island in the Cyclades. Never heard of it? You’re not alone, but wait till you see how beautiful it turned out!
Hints of Moroccan charm + clean modern lines were infused into their decor, along with wild greenery and pops of Burgundy. The brides dress from Rime Arodaky is simply gorgeous, and was picture perfect for their relaxed day. Captured by Nikos Mylonas, see it all below, and don’t miss the full gallery after.
MODERN + MOROCCAN BEACH WEDDING
From MBW Events: Dimitra and Vangelis are both architects with high aesthetics and a unique taste for beautiful and harmonious things. They chose Serifos, a small alternative yet enchanted island of the Cyclades, known for its natural beauty. Serifos enchants instantly her visitors with its simplicity, the wild beauty of the landscape and its sandy and pebble beaches. Her colors resemble to a painter's palette. It is a place that preserves its natural form and authenticity. They wanted a beach wedding, modern styled with a mixture of Moroccan elements.
WHITE-WASHED CHAPEL BY THE SEA
At the ceremony, we kept it simple as it was performed in a traditional white washed chapel on a hill, overlooking the Aegean Sea. The beauty of the chapel of Panagia Skopiani is breathtaking so we just added some free styled eucalyptus branches on its white walls and a statement arrangement of our flowers on top of the main entrance.
steal her bridal look
The bridal bouquet was made out of olive branches, baby burgundy – pink roses, burgundy astilbe, and some hydrangeas. Dimitra, the bride, wanted it to be simple and smooth so that it wouldn't take credit from her amazing Rime Arodaky wedding dress. The dress, oh the dress! Simple lines, with a short cut in front covered with the most amazing lace, same as the lace used to cover the back of it! Elegance at its best! Dimitra styled it with some old fashion diamond earrings.
magical garden feel
A statement head table, literally feet from the sea, 4 meters long. All wooden, specially made for the couple assorted with classic “Viennese” styled chairs. The table was surrounded by a 4 meters decorated pergola, with eucalyptus. A crystal chandelier in the middle created the contrast we wanted but assorted with lots of Moroccan little lanterns immediately transported us to some magical secret luxurious gardens of Fez.
romantic moroccan atmosphere
Four statement tables, that were used as a natural “border” for our set up on this endless beach. Wooden ones, 3 meters long, with a tailored made pergola based on them. The pergolas were decorated with dry vineyard branches and hydrangeas. A mixture of big black embroidered Moroccan lamps together with old fashioned Edison lamps and Moroccan lanterns assorted with a flower ball hanging from the pergolas were used to create an amber, mysterious yet romantic atmosphere during the evening, after the sunset.
