Mykonos has everything you could want for a Greek destination wedding - warm sea air, golden light and a gorgeous earthy palette dotted with those famously white buildings.
The Greek Islands have always been close to my heart so I was thrilled to be able to photograph this stunning Mykonos elopement at Mykonos town luxury hotel, the stylish and tranquil Bohème Mykonos. Up on the hill, beyond the whitewashed maze of bars and boutiques, Bohème Mykonos is the perfect location for a Greek elopement if you love the idea of marrying somewhere that brings you peace and balance and where style connects with nature.
What should the morning of a Mykonos Wedding look like?
I'm a firm believer in slow mornings and even more so on wedding days. A wedding is so fast paced, I truly believe the best way to begin your day is in the most relaxed way possible. Waking up with coffee and a stunning view of the Ionian Sea, followed by a dip in a private jacuzzi with a glass of champagne? It doesn't get more perfect.
What do you wear for a Mykonos Elopement?
There are no rules, but the best details are the ones that are intrinsically you. Modern celestial grecian was the theme with nods to the stars and ancient greek style. Personalised constellations hand sewn into the bridal wings by the incredible Rebecca Anne Designs, a handcrafted Gibson Bespoke headpiece and earrings, intricate rings by RU.ST Jewellery and the brides favoured fragrance contributed to the elegant theme of the day. And just wait 'til you see the gowns!
A Greek Destination Wedding in Esty Style
Continuing with the elegant theme, the bride wore the stunning Melanie gown by Esty Style. This ivory corseted dress is decorated with lace and crystals and is a beautiful choice if you are looking for something classic with modern detail. The groom wore a tailored linen suit, which was perfect for the warm Mykonos weather.
The gorgeous couple broke all tradition and had the most perfect modern day elopement. After enjoying the morning together, they each got ready separately and met for a first look in this natural cabana filled with billowing drapes. Followed by a sweepingly romantic greek elopement at the little chapel on the hill, just when the sun was starting its journey into golden hour.
