A Luxury Elopement in Sivota – Rebecca & Ben

Our couple flew to Greece from Australia and hosted their closest friends for their secret and intimate elopement. In their emails, they spoke excitedly about their forthcoming trip to Greece and asked me to help them arrange a small ceremony and an intimate dinner somewhere a little luxurious.

I suggested Sivota Thesprotias on the stunning west coast of Greece, and the Agios Nikolaos Suites. This intimate feel, 5 star, luxury hotel overlooks the off-shore islands, offering scenery of breathtaking views where lush green vegetation embraces the beautiful white sandy beaches and the clear turquoise waters.

Elegant floral stands overflowing with white and blush pink roses, eucalyptus and olive blended with the garden ceremony location perfectly. This was reached via a pretty walk through stone arch ways and path ways lined with an array of beautiful coastal flowers.

They wanted a rustic feel but in a style that suited the stylish design of the hotel, so we laid the table with a full garland of greenery, flowers and pink hypericum berries. To add to the romance of the occasion we nestled a mix of antique toned gold glass vases and candle votives amongst the foliage which lit the evening beautifully.

Bride wore the Saboya bridal gown by Rosa Clara. A fitted silhouette of silk crepe with exquisite beading on the cap sleeves and elegant back detail.  The bride bouquet contained white and blush tones of roses, lisianthus, alstroemeria, astilbe and eucalyptus.

Dinner was served by candlelight on the terrace of Agios Nikolaos’ a la carte restaurant, and the guests enjoyed a variety of modern Greek cuisine including fresh lobster.
