Katie and Roubesh decided to get married in a private villa on the island of Corfu, a breathtaking location with beautiful emerald waters. As the bride mentioned, they chosed the island of Corfu to have their destination wedding because: “… my family and I used to spend our summers there for many years”.
Kate’s stunning Oscar De La Renta wedding dress was a romantic a-line dress that according to the bride: “ Had none of the princess stuff… just simple and romantic”. The bridal hairstyle was simple and oh-so-chic: softly pulled back in a loose bun.
With impeccable sense of attention to detail, wedding planner Anna Sourbati really created a heavenly wedding scene: “In order add prettiness to the large trees in the villa’s garden, we hung limomium floral garlands and rows of fairy lights to create a dreamy setting… We arranged to have small mason jars with lights in the surrounding area”.
“In the villa garden, there is a beautiful fountain with a fascinating view of the Ionian Sea. That is where the ceremony took place. We made a kiosk from birch wood that was specifially sent from Holland for the wedding. The pergola was decorated beautifuly with white wisteria”.
“The boutonnieres as well as the bridal bouquet included the bride’s favorite flower: lavender”.
“The lanterns were filled with fairy lights instead of candles to create an enchanted feel”.
“The idea was to create a Greece inspired floral decoration with small olive tree branches that were enhanced with pink button roses, white aster, solidago and limonium. To add a romantic touch half the floral arrangements were trees and the other half had natural tree bark. The chairs were adorned with rose bouquets, tender olive branches and rosemary. At the ceremony, the aisle was decorated on both sides with olive garlands. Also, since the groom is from Indian descent, we included an Indian wedding tradition where the grooms places white orchid garlands on the bride”.
“The wedding tables were named after all the countries the wedding guests were visiting from…”
Mr & Mrs wedding chair signs were decorated with rosemary and aster.
The destination wedding in Coru included highlights that were definitely memorable not only for the newlyweds but also for all the guests attending the wedding. As the wedding planner shared with us: “We arranged to have Pamela Κnight and her band play at the wedding reception. The wedding guests were entertained and taught how to dance Greek dances by professional dancers. And last but not least, friends suprised the couple with a flash bob dance to the song “Happy” by Pharrell Williams. As soon as the song started, friends and family started to jump up from their tables and dance to the music. The newlyweds followed right after them . It was very beautiful!”
