Ollie and Rebecca chose a private villa estate with its own olive grove and chapel as the backdrop to their special day. The British couple invited guests from London, Greece and the USA to celebrate with them at their September wedding in Lefkada.
Rebecca wore a gown from Halo and Wren Bridal with an art deco lace pattern and chose wings rather than a classic veil. Her bridesmaids wore champagne-coloured midi dresses with a classic chignon hairstyle. Bouquets of soft pastels and pampas were carried by the bride and the bridesmaids.
Their wedding ceremony was in front of the little chapel, set in the olive grove of this Lefkada villa with arrangements of white flowers and pampas. Afterwards, the couple led the guests through the estate to the terrace of Villa Gaia to enjoy the panoramic views of the Greek coastline and the north of Lefkada island below. Guests were entertained by British musician Andy Lewis with his melodic cocktail hour vibes and celebrated with refreshing Greek bubbles from the Domaine Glinavos winery.
We lit a magical walkway of lanterns for the guests to follow the path to the dinner reception in the olive grove held under a canopy of garland lights. The tables had arrangments of pastel flowers and pampas and flickering glass candles. Ollie’s Greek relatives added some Opa! to the dinner period by spontaneously dancing to the Greek band in between courses. The evening continued with a party and cocktail bar as the guests danced the night away under the star-filled sky.
If you are dreaming of a beautiful olive grove wedding in a private villa in Lefkada and looking for your perfect planner, send me a message here with all the details of your day. I would love to help bring your special day to life.
