TIMELESS ELEGANT MYKONOS WEDDING

LOCATION: Mykonos

The Greek islands are known to be one of the world’s most fabulous locations for an out-of-this-world destination wedding, and none more so than vibrant Mykonos! When Filip & Jan from the USA first reached out to us to organize their dream gay wedding the initial plan was for their wedding to take place at a gorgeous private villa here in Crete; with so many luxury villas to choose from, you’re spoiled for choice! Then when they shared with us that top of their list of wedding wishes was a villa with breathtaking sunset views - an absolute must for them – we just knew that an exclusive hill-top villa with breathtaking panoramic views in cosmopolitan Mykonos was the perfect choice for them! And with its amazing beaches & glorious sunsets, Filip & Jan agreed it was everything they’d dreamed of…

The two handsome young grooms who are originally from the Czech Republic & Slovakia are both huge fitness fans and also have a passion for travelling, both for business & pleasure. During the planning of their wedding Filip & Jan, with their wonderful bubbly personalities, were a dream to work with as they knew exactly what they wanted for their big day but were also very receptive to our ideas & suggestions and trusted in our many years of wedding planning experience to bring to life their wedding vision. We started working closely with the couple a year before their big day, by email & skype, to fine tune every last detail. Everything went like clockwork, even allowing for the time difference between the 2 or sometimes even 3 countries due to work obligations of the grooms.

Filip & Jan invited 40 of their precious family & friends from all over the world to share in their beautiful Greek island wedding & they were all blown away by the villa’s spectacular setting & views. The word idyllic was surely invented for somewhere as unbelievably stunning as this premium wedding venue...

The celebrations started with an upbeat welcome party with cocktails & finger food. Then, with the sun warm on their skin and love very much in the air, Filip & Jan made their way hand in hand down the aisle together for their moving ceremony which took place on the hillside in front of the villa overlooking the mesmerising Aegean sea. Their romantic ceremony was conducted by two close friends and with their guests clearly enchanted by the magic of the day, Filip & Jan declared their love for each other in front of the people who mean the most to them in the world. Although the sea breeze was quite strong on the day, this created some brilliant photo & video results from the talented professionals who were on hand to cover every moment of the day’s events….lots of natural, windswept shots of dresses & hair!

After the emotional speeches, which included a touching speech by Filip’s mum that truly touched the newlyweds’ hearts, their sumptuous reception dinner was served beside the villa’s kidney shaped pool and included delicious salads, fresh fish & tender veal dishes. Dessert was an impressive buffet affair with cute shot glasses filled with tempting sweets as well as Greek donuts, mini tartlets & fresh fruit. The couple chose a 2-tier round white wedding cake with their initials as a cool topper and sweet macarons & fresh berries to complement the stylish cake. The sparkling wine to toast the couple’s future happiness added a wonderful extra touch of elegance & fizz to the wedding reception celebrations.

The first dance is a special moment at every wedding and the adorable song the couple chose for their own first dance together was SO fitting & spoke right to everyone’s hearts…

A top DJ provided the music for the evening’s reception party and the guests danced the night away under the star-filled Mykonos sky. A brilliant time was had by all!

From dream to reality, this truly inspirational destination wedding was a day where Filip & Jan as a couple were reflected in every beautiful detail and we were so delighted to have played a part a part in bringing it all together.
