Sarah & Mark’s micro wedding with indigo blue and copper details has a unique modern style that will enchant you! The location of their wedding in Lefkada, Greece overlooked the Mediterranean sea at a beach restaurant venue decorated with rustic, gorgeous details in blue, green and white making the scene even more beautiful.
The reception followed a modern style with geometric lines in blue, copper and grey tones, blue glass vases with flowers and candles. Enjoy every single moment of this wedding through the following photos captured by one of my favourite photographer partners, Lefteris Kalampokas!
The blue and copper details
Whether you have an understated colour palette and you need a unique highlight, or you have an array of colours and you’re looking for that special something to round it off, copper is the ideal metallic colour. For Sarah & Mark’s September wedding in Lefkas, we drew inspiration from natural elements and thought that the deep indigo blue would pair so nicely with copper’s vibrance.
It can be a feat to add floral details that stand out when you have two colours vying for the spotlight so we kept it simple with white and peach roses mixed with silver-grey Brunia berries, eucalyptus and succulents.
Why they chose a wedding in Lefkada?
Active sports lovers, Sarah and Mark, opened a kite surfing base in Lefkada in 2017 and decided to get married on this idyllic Greek island in the Ionian sea a year later. “Lefkada is our home; it is easily accessible for both Mark’s family flying in from Austria and mine from the UK, so we reached out to Claire at Lefkas Weddings to help us plan a small and intimate wedding in September at the end of our summer.”
Sarah had faced a dilemma on collecting her original dress choice as she wasn’t keen on the final fit, so her sister came to the rescue bringing a second dress from the UK when she flew over for their celebration. Sarah’s choice was a Karen Millen sheath dress in ivory with contrast gold straps around the neckline. It’s cinched waist made for a svelte silhouette, whilst its mid-length provided an elegant finish. ” I was really happy with it and wouldn’t change it.”
Mark bought his Versace suit at Katsenos Collezione, Lefkada and chose blue-grey fabric paired with a dark blue cravat.
Bride and interior designer Sarah creates designs that bring out her clients’ personalities, and her natural style is contemporary eclectic. She enjoyed sourcing some of the decor items for their blue and copper micro wedding in Greece which included the woven rug for the ceremony, the copper napkin rings and the wedding favours.
A tale of two rings
They were afraid to damage or lose their rings kite surfing, so they purchased simple wedding bands from Lefkada for the ceremony. Sarah explained to me over messages a few months afterwards; ” I do now have a beautiful ring but as emeralds are quite delicate, I only wear it when we are out. We’re both still wearing the simple ones as they are sentimental to us!”
