Looking at life (and marriage) through rose colored glasses? Grab your pair and put on la vie en rose, because this pretty in pink destination wedding in Mykonos will take your blushing bride thoughts to a whole new level
With so many scapes, different climes and wedding styles to decide upon, a destination wedding is the perfect way to plan an escape at an amazing location, discover the pretty of a new culture, and spend quality time with your loved ones, all the while celebrating your marriage.
That is exactly what Anabelle and Kerry had in mind when putting their fingers through the map in search of the most idyllic and party-ready wedding destination. It was none other than Mykonos (or shall we say? Mykonooooos), the island where celebs rub shoulders with jet-setters, and life seems to follow a frenetic yet utterly seductive pace of its own.
Who other than Anjie Georgakopoulou from Only For You Events to trust for a overly-romantic wedding design swathed in dreamy details, perfect accents, and phantasmagorical blooms? We always, always love to work beside her and her teams -the exquisite floral designer Studio 7 Flowers among them-, and knew that trusting her vision, our couple was bound to have a heavenly decor, the most elegant design, and the time of their lives.
Starting off the big day at our couple’s stone-built pasty villa by the pool it was all happy buzz. Anabelle and her bridesmaids getting prepared on one side, sipping bubbly and enjoying a bit of merry chat, while Kerry and his entire family on the other side turning the groom’s preps into an event itself!
Now who needs a perfect island chapel to say I do? Perched on the cliffs of Saint Sostis beach, the eponymous little church with its sky-blue twin wooden doors was festooned with romantic garlands, candle pillars and baskets brimful of blue, lavender, and pink florals, which seamlessly matched the lovely atmosphere. And if you want to grab a Cycladic island custom for your own destination wedding in Mykonos, then ring that bell soon as you’re pronounced husband and wife!
There’s no Mykonos pilgrimage that doesn’t include a passing through the most glamorous beach on the island, Psarou beach, and Anabelle & Kerry’s reception took place right there, at one of the hottest places to be, right off the waterfront, Nammos!
Nuzzled in the golden sands of the most iconic Mykonos beach the blush wedding scene looked as if it jumped right out of a fairytale; A sweep of blush blooms across all tables, sprawling sweet peas, spray roses, hydrangeas, lisianthus, mini-cymbidiums amongst others, Antropologie dinnerware, Atelier Invitations pink-coral-themed papeterie, blush tapper candles, exquisite welcome gifts… and a lot of chocolate, including a tiered wedding cake the stuff of dreams! Could any pink-loving bride ask for more?
And how about a wedding party to last till the wee hours ? (because hey… Mykonos is a party nation of its own)! Sweet we say and we can almost see you pinning this stunning fete on your list of favorites! For us it was certainly a blast!
