Greece just got even more gorgeous with this intimate destination wedding at Seaside Restaurant in Lefkada with green and white flowers! The picturesque location was the perfect outdoor venue for a seafront ceremony and reception for British couple Mark and Lauren.
Delighted with their beautiful photographs by Maxeen Kim Photography, the couple were keen to chat about the wedding day so scroll down to find out more.
Why we chose a destination wedding in Greece
“We both love Greek food! Also, Lauren spent many family holidays in Greece and has lots of great memories of the different places she has visited with her family. We stumbled across Maxeen’s photography of Lefkada on Instagram and instantly fell in love with the scenery. The idea of getting married on a Greek island that wasn’t well known to ourselves or our family and friends felt like more of a unique choice.
We wanted it to be a relaxed day with lots of laughter as well as an opportunity to be on holiday surrounded by our family and friends, at one time in one place.
I found Lefkas Weddings via our photographer’s recommendation and I am so pleased we did! Claire is well organised, speaks the language and knows the area well. This means she can make recommendations and resolve any local problems that may occur. Claire not only helped with the day itself but also with the accommodation for ourselves and our guests, airport transfers as well as arranging our pre-wedding dinner during the holiday!”
The white and green wedding decor
To create Lauren’s vision of an elegant white and green wedding in Greece, we used olive and willow island greenery with a mix of seasonal white flowers. The bridal bouquet included white peonies, wax, lisianthus and was scented with eucalyptus.
The ceremony had an arch by the sea and a sweetheart table with a flower garland for our signatures.
The reception tables were filled with a delicate mix of flower-filled grey ceramic and glass vases and cut glass candlesticks. As the evening fell the venue was lit by flickering candlelight.
Finding the perfect venue
“We booked Seaside as our wedding venue two years in advance on the recommendation of our planner without visiting in advance. A few days before our wedding day we went for lunch and we’re all instantly blown away by the setting. When lunch arrived, we were even more impressed… beautifully presented and tasted delicious. Any doubts or worries we had about the day were gone and we were filled with excitement.
The day went so smoothly and we couldn’t have asked for more. Owner Kostas is certainly the host with the most! This place will forever be special in our hearts and we will certainly be back!”
