Picturesque wedding by the lake

Nikos & Katerina

When Nikos & Katerina got in touch with us, we realized from the very beginning that their wedding would be a challenge! And we were thrilled, because we love challenging weddings!

While most couples who opt for a destination wedding in Greece would prefer a wedding on the beach or overlooking the sea, those two chose to get married by Lake Plastira up to the mountains! Living in Switzerland for the past few years, the couple would like to organize a wedding in the glorious Greek countryside, at the village the father of the bride comes from in central Greece.

They were both determined to grant their parents’ request for a traditional big fat Greek wedding. So, the task was to plan a 2-day event with 500 guests attending! A pre-wedding party took place at the bride’s house garden with all the villagers coming over to welcome the groom’s family into their family. 

The wedding ceremony was held at a 16th century chapel, while the wedding reception was organized at the yard of the old stone school of the village that was turned into one of the most magical venues we have ever seen! We kept the decoration simple, but the fairy lights created the most romantic atmosphere! 

Their next day photo session was a delight to experience. The couple strolled casually at the pebbled alleys of the traditional nearby villages, got some amazing photos taken by the lake and couldn’t resist taking a boat lake ride!
