Inspired by Greece, Take a Vow combines modern and organic details with an abundance of greenery and florals in this gorgeous wedding style…
‘With its white washed walls, pool and sweeping sea views, the luxury eco lodge was the perfect setting for our Grecian glamour shoot. We felt like we had been relocated to Santorini!
The tablescape displayed a lush wedding table garland that was overflowing with olive branches, eucalyptus leaves and cream florals. Lemon beeswax tapered candles and antique gold elements featured throughout, and quirky details like the use of lemons, olive oil and limoncello combined with the floral arrangements to help bring the Greek styling to life. A fringe detail macramé wedding altar with olive leaves completed the perfect backdrop.’
