Ethereal beach wedding shoot | Crete
This ethereal beach wedding – inspirational editorial shoot took part in one of our most favorite places in Greece, Crete and was laced with moments of contemporary etherealism and effortless romance. For the modern bride who seeks the comfort of a luxury hotel and loves to stand out with glorious and delicate dresses, statement jewelry, dreamy florals but beyond all for the romantic soul who came out of a fairytale and stepped right out of a dream.
Nature is an endless source of inspiration no matter the season and Geropotamos beach was the sparkle that caught my eye to make this shoot happen. This beach owes its name to Geropotamos River, which flows into this sea. That river was without doubt the perfect ceremony backdrop. Glowing natural skin tones in bridal make-up and the ivory fabric in the dress were immersed in the palette of neutral, earthy and green tones created by the surrounding grasses. The groom equally stunning, next to her ethereal bride wore a gorgeous black and white suit. The tablescape overlooked the breathtaking sea arches that have a mysterious allure that are entirely otherworldly.
At this ethereal beach wedding, the mirrored tables added a sense of luxury and the clear chairs the simplicity that come together with elegance. The black details (candles, plates, cutlery, custom favors) completed the ultimate modern setting. The table flowers had a very natural style and along with the pink napkins made the wedding design more romantic. Simple modern calligraphy adorned the invitations of this ethereal beach wedding and the combination of warm tones with edgier black created a high-contrast palette that spoke for itself.
