Medieval Fairytale Styled Shoot in Crete

By Eleni Balkouli @Love4Wed

Today’s styled shoot emits something from another era! A private estate in Crete was the ideal venue for a modern yet medieval fairytale setting like this one. The whole scene followed a desert theme as the outdoor landscape of the building was adorned perfectly with many cactus plants, wooden furniture, golden details, candles and incredible creations. A stylish wedding dinner table was set in the middle of the garden and was decorated with gold vintage cutlery, crystal stemmed glasses and romantic gold candle holders. What to say about the wooden dessert table… impressive and tasty! The scene was completed with a female figure with an aristocratic, vintage style. Love it!

From Moments Weddings & Events: “We were eager to spread our creative wings once more with a second, equally stunning inspirational shoot here in Crete. This time, we decided to share our take on a truly unique wedding venue; a magnificent private estate dating back to the 14th century, set among an aromatic avocado grove. We wanted to really get across the romantic and magical atmosphere of this modern-day medieval fairytale setting and the amazing possibilities for a dream wedding ceremony and reception.”

“Combining a distinctive desert theme with our passion for putting together the perfect wedding every time, we added just enough detail to this elegant venue to compliment its authentic beauty, without taking away from its natural charm. In the estateʼs spacious courtyard with its ivy-covered walls, we positioned a flowing white canopy, ready for a wedding ceremony made in heaven.”

“On the adjacent lush green lawn we set up the stylish wedding dinner table with its charming antique chairs using mint crockery, gold vintage cutlery, crystal stemmed glasses and romantic gold candle holders. In keeping with the desert theme, we added a selection of mini prickly plants and we also designed a chic set of wedding stationery which included menus,ʼ Order of The Dayʼ cards, ʽThank You For Being Hereʼ cards and ʽBrideʼ & ʽGroomʼ place setting cards.”

“When it came to choosing the perfect flowers to compliment our set up, we really went to town! Along with all sizes of cactus plants, an eye-catching selection of distinctive pink Proteas, yellow Eremurus and Craspendia and thistle-like Eryngium added a true desert feeling to the surroundings. We also included beautiful pink Peonies, peach roses and turquoise Hortensia displays, perfectly positioned to set off their striking colours. A selection of these amazing flowers also featured in our beautiful brideʼs breath-taking bouquet. The final addition to our desert plants was a fragrant red Pepper Berry arrangement.”

“Our choice of wedding confectionery demonstrated flawlessly our chosen concept. A spectacular 2-tier white Succulent cake and a round white and gold Dripping cake were accompanied by cute mini cactus cupcakes, creating a luscious display of wedding treats.”
