A Modern Beach Wedding with Traditional Elements

A Romanian Beach Wedding A beach wedding for Viorica and Paul a couple from Romania in Sithonia, Halkidiki. Nothing sounds unusual so far, right?

Because it was a beach wedding the couple followed just a few. They had to choose their godparents  – a married couple (friends, cousins or other relatives) who will have the role of...

A Modern Multicultural Wedding

Multicultural Wedding Celebrations can be fun; The way I see it,  it can be fun. My opinion is based on my personal experience to accomplish a sufficient amount of multicultural weddings. Every couple is special whether they come from the same culture or not. Custom issues may arise but if there are positive intentions, in the long run, issues can be solved. For me, as a wedding planner, is another challenge, another remarkable experience. It is challenging to encourage, advise and collaborate with the couples. In this particular modern multicultural wedding, which took place,...

A Mediterranean Wedding

A Greek -  Italian Wedding. A young couple, chose Greece, home of the bride she is Greek and he is Italian, as their destination wedding. The couple's priority was the location, where the wedding reception would take place. They wanted to be totally Mediterranean. To have a view of the sea as far as the horizon ends. One of the best locations in Halkidiki, is Vourvourou in Sithonia, in my opinion. An outstandingly beautiful location full of green, crystal clear waters and tiny islands in the background. The wedding had Greece's National most...
