Intimate Wedding on Mykonos by Stella & Moscha
Today’s gorgeous couple literally jumped ship to marry in the Greek islands! Silvia and Bryan interrupted their Mediterranean cruise holiday to hop off on the oh so chic Greek island of Mykonos and tie the knot in a beautiful, classic white washed church. After strolling around the island to capture a few portraits, the couple joined their small group of family and friends for a traditional Greek feast, before hopping back on the ship in the late afternoon. To be honest, I’ve never actually seen this done before, but I think I’m in love with the idea! Can you imagine anything more romantic that getting married during a Mediterranean cruise? Or anything more fantastic than a long, leisurely lunch on a Greek Island?? Nope. Me neither. On hand to weave their magic and conjure up this gorgeous affair were the amazing team at Stella & Moscha, and behind the lense to document it beautifully was George Pahountis.
From the Wedding Planner: Mykonos is mostly known as being the most cosmopolitan and glamorous amongst the Greek Islands. Others refer to it as the ultimate party destination; which it is! The fact is though that Mykonos hosts over 400 teeny-tiny fabulous white washed chapels and sets the perfect background for a wedding; be it an intimate affair or a grand wedding celebration. When Silvia and Bryan contacted us over a year ago their first choice was to marry on the island of Santorini. They had decided to whisk away their beloved family and valued friends on a ‘fun under the sun’ cruise around the Mediterranean. So this was the perfect opportunity for them to tie the knot in the Greek Islands. As the Catholic Church in Santorini was not able to host the ceremony we immediately suggested Mykonos. And we set out with Silvia on our wonderful planning journey!!! The ceremony took place at the Virgin of St. Rosary Church, right in the heart of Mykonos Town – Chora and next to the most photographed windmills of the Aegean Sea. Silvia wanted her family and friends to toast over an authentic Greek lunch before boarding back on their cruise boat. So the Belvedere Hotel was the obvious choice; a mouthwatering celebratory meal in the most serene environment. Purple and blue flowers were chosen to complement the Aegean blue and miniature Bride & Groom iced cake pops replaced the traditional wedding cake. It was a fabulous day captured perfectly by George Pahountis.
