Elena and Giannis got married on a lovely early September afternoon in one of the most rustic and beautiful cities of Northern Greece, Naoussa. The thicket of Agios Nikolaos is a Pan-Hellenic tourist centre of recreation and daylong excursion which is located about 3 kilometres south-west of the heroic town of Naoussa. Sixty acres of spectacular ground take life from the sources of the historical and multiply precious river of Arapitsa. The unique in Greece age-long thicket of platans impressed the guests for its magnificence and volume. In its shade rests the immense green of the natural sod that coexists with the wild uncultivated boxwood, the basswood, the oak and the abundant water in a rare agreement of sounds and colours.
We first met Elena and Gianni almost a year before their wedding. It was a match made in heaven from the very first appointment. We started planning their special day right away, as it was a very challenging and big event, due to the location and the number of guests. Thoroughly planned and carefully coordinated, this wedding was immaculate.
On the day of the wedding, the couple, as elegant and as handsome a they could be, they were glowing with happiness and anticipation. They chose to celebrate their special day among hundreds of family members and guests, combining a traditional wedding with a luxe fête by the river. The entire thicket of Agios Nikolaos was transformed into a romantic scenery, full of string lights and white set tables and chairs, with gold flatware and white flowers. Fog coming out of the river, while a LOVE sign is shedding light on it, champagne glasses clinking and people dancing happily around the newlyweds until the sunrise. That is our idea of a dream wedding coming true.
“I’m watching her talk. Watching her jaw move and collecting her words one by one as they spill from her lips. I don’t deserve them. Her warm memories. I’d like to paint them over the bare plaster walls of my soul, but everything I paint seems to peel.”
