Autumnal Wedding Ideas in Greece
This years Boheme Workshop was inspired by the history of the castle town of Monemvasia in Greece. A city built into the walls of an island peninsula off the coast of mainland Greece. The influence of the East on Monemvasia vis a vis the Byzantine and Ottoman Empires inspired the aesthetic of the this inspiration from Vasia Photography and stylist Adelaide Design.
The concept of a couple marrying inside the walls of the castle town, juxtaposing a modern bohemian aesthetic with the history of town, heavily referencing the Byzantine and Ottoman periods in the design of the shoots. The dried florals by Da Fiori Design are perfect for any Fall wedding. The stonework of the town served as a perfect canvas for building a colour palette consisting of blue, beige, rust and burgundy. The ceremony was set on staircase set under a grand arch with clusters of florals installations on either side of the staircase and an oversized bridal bouquet.
From Adelaide Design: "In curating the table scape, the focus was on sourcing natural materials, such as wood, metal, cotton and ceramics. The linen was a natural linen and the runner sourced in Athens was an organic cotton. The antique chargers were brass. The chairs were wood and the cutlery had a bone finish. Each brass charger was completed with ivory and handicraft wood inlay boxes with intricate geometry design. The stunning floral design was built from the colour palette and from wanting to create lush, organic and wild florals with locally foraged greenery in a warm colour palette. The reception dinner table was to be one where everything was bountiful and overflowing, in keeping with the bohemian aesthetic, being earthy and wildly romantic while also being an authentic extension to the beautiful arch the table was set under. To bring in modern styling references, the models were styled in unconventional colours, nude and beige."
