Looking for a private setting with an unbelievable panoramic view for your celebration? Katrina and Rich’s May wedding at The View Lefkada was the perfect start to our summer and is firmly now one of our favourite villa weddings on Lefkada island. Our British couple fell in love with the views from this East Coast villa online and booked it immediately for their intimate micro wedding in May. They reached out to us for help and guidance in bringing their dream to life and we happily accepted!
The villa has been thoughtfully furnished by its owners with Italian furniture and design details. The details of the villa such as the wooden door in the garden, hand-made from fastenings from an old monastery and the tiled table top using blue pattern tiles from an Italian castle were all featured in the photography of their day by Maxeen Kim Photography.
The couple exchanged vows in the villa garden, with all the guests amazed by the view. Following the traditional walk down the aisle at the end of the ceremony to Elvis ‘Can’t help falling in love’ the couple continued into a dance together enjoying the just married mood, to the delight of their parents and guests, who stepped in to join them for this romantic moment.
Guests were entertained by Kosmas Pafitis with his violin and piano duo playing modern covers as the cocktails were shaken and refreshing Greek bubbles were poured in the May sunshine from our ‘Drunk in love’ pop-up bar.
In keeping with the garden wedding setting, the couple decided on white and green flowers as decoration. To add a modern touch to this timeless wedding palette we suggested adding a pop of soft yellow Craspedia. These three colours are nature’s spring palette when the green hillsides and olive groves of Lefkada are covered with carpets of white daisies. The tables had pedestal vases filled with arrangements of roses, lisianthus, ruscus and eucalyptus paired with yellow napkins and mercury glass candles.
For a relaxed evening affair, our private catering partners set up a grazing table with a variety of Greek and Mediterranean tastes. The evening continued with a party and cocktail bar as the guests danced the night away under the star-filled sky to live music by our guitarist Sakis.
