We have fallen in love with this Chic Wedding at Poseidonion Grand Hotel in Spetses and we can not hide it. And why should we? The island of Spetses gives chills to all beauty lovers… Something is coming over me just by recalling the day of this elegant wedding shoot in Greece. It brings out my romantic side!
Capturing the loving moments of two young people during the golden hour is magical. Even more where your backdrop is whimsical per se: Spetses and the grandiose Poseidonion Hotel.
This Chic Wedding photoshoot took place during a beautiful spring afternoon when the sun was giving us wholeheartedly its sweet light. Dimitris & Katerina look their best in their stylish tux and magnificent wedding gown. Poseidonion hotel is an aristocratic milieu and this was pinpointed by the entire design: the chic details, the linens and tableware, the flowers, the invitations, the desserts… Every single element was there to contribute to what this wedding setting was all about: elegance!
Olympia, the beautiful mare was so patient and easy to work with. She obeyed every single order and with her calm disposition became the perfect co-star to this stunning couple.
With its ambiance of refined luxury and impeccable service, the Poseidonion Grand Hotel is the ultimate venue for a wedding in Spetses. At this magnificent and elegant venue, all your dreams come true! The location offers a truly unique destination wedding in Greece. Having the brides slowly walking down the antique marble staircase, while guests cheer and throw flowers, you feel like you are part of a book. A book about love and beauty!

Most of the times while seeing brilliant weddings in the wedding blog Magnolia Rouge, my attention is caught by the fine wedding compositions and accessories in the wedding reception and the general setting. The hand-dyed silk ribbons by Songbird Silk are breathtaking, ethereal and romantic!
From a young girl, Tamara could often be found hidden in a corner creating fine and intricate things such as lace, embroidery, and dainty trinkets. Library shelves were often foraged for early century books as she looked for inspiration in the delicate handy work of everyday lace makers and other crafts.
This longtime passion for fine art textiles has been a guiding influence in the creation of Songbird Silk. Tamara wanted to create elegant silk ribbons that would be cherished and passed on as an heirloom to future generations, just like the images she admired as a child reading books from a bygone era.
Well, if only the dreamy wedding details could stop there… Notice the magnificent ring dish by the collections of Marbella Dishes. Justine Milton is the designer and creator of these inspiring treasure dishes. They are unique and totally handmade.
As she reveals, the collection came out from an everyday habit of hers to take out her rings and put them “somewhere safe” or “somewhere I’ll remember”. She felt like it was important to put her beloved rings somewhere that wouldn’t feel like she was just shoving it away in a drawer. She wanted something that could sit out on a table and not only show her appreciation for her treasures, but also add to the overall appearance of her home – so this is how she made the first Marbella Dishes! The rest is history! Now we all can admire and order her Marbella Dishes.
Can you have a chic wedding without flowers? Absolutely not! There are countless ways to rock a bridal bouquet or any flower arrangement in a wedding reception that could be fresh, modern, and entirely unique. To nail this you must trust a professional floral Designer like Jim Labrako.
In a Chic Wedding, both flowers and guests need the perfect furniture to lay their beauty and joy. Having some extra chairs and tables and several helpful pieces of furniture by Zazoo will give a sense of generosity to your guests. Grand weddings need grand furniture! But before the wedding ceremony, you will need to send the invitations. Elegant and handmade wedding invitations by Atelier Invitations will introduce to your guests the theme of your wedding.
The Big Day is finally here! The bride is preparing her appearance starting with her hair and makeup. When you are in the hands of the capable Frantzeska Koukoula you are sure for the final bridal look. Her love for beauty along with her creativity & expertise has made Frantzeska one of the most loved by brides Make Up Artist.
The bride of this Chic Wedding is wearing her astonishing Galia Lahav wedding dress by The Bridal Boutique and all mirrors are smiling on the island of Spetses. But the brighter and wider smile is in the groom’s face. This couple is in love! Just look at them. Dimitris is a professional model but he has his precious lady in his arms. Nothing can compare with the tenderness of genuine love. He touches her wedding veil as if it is something fragile and he cares not to move it by accident. He protects her with his whole body and soul. Doesn’t he look like a novel hero with this dandy and handsome groom attire by Christakis Athens?
Wedding photoshoots are not real weddings but demand all the attention and preparation of real weddings. At this magnificent Photography Workshop: Phos that was organized by some of the top wedding photographers on the planet, I reconnected with the Film Photographer within myself.
Fine Art Film Wedding Photographers have a certain way to look and capture moments. By definition, photographers are dancing with light. Are chasing the balance between light and shadow. Fine Art Film Wedding Photographers are actually seeking the best techniques to soften the boundaries between reality and dreams. They bring to the surface the best capture a photographer can get. Film photographers are the voice of all the unsaid words and emotions.
The creative and gentle power of Justine Milton and Les Anagnou share their knowledge with all the participants. But mostly made all of us fall in love, again, with the creative process of taking photographs and tell the story with our heart. Now I can connect in a more meaningful way with the Art of Photography and the people that trust me to be their wedding photographer. After all, it’s all about communication and connection!
My goal is to capture your joyous moments & unforgettable memories! Let’s meet and talk about your wedding. Shall we have a coffee? Your dreams & plans combined with my awarded photography skills can create the best storytelling wedding photography album. Your wedding album! – Monika Kritikou
