We’re terracotta dreaming in Greece with this destination engagement inspiration filled with ideas! Set in Kea, Greece, the majestic island of the Cyclades was the perfect backdrop for the dreamy engagement proposal of the famous former football player Lampros Choutos to darling Matina Zara, famous singer and composer in Greece! Dreamt up by Greek wedding planner THINK HAPPY EVENTS the creative team were inspired to create something colourful yet balanced. The palette was in welcoming warm neutrals and terracotta! Ceramic menus and plates added a strong character, as their tradition is long in the islands of the Cycladic group! Roses, dahlias, indigenous greenery, and wildflowers were perfect for the concept of an intimate destination celebration in Greece.
Kea - also known as Tzia - is a very beautiful island. It’s a jet-set destination, as well as a fashionable choice for couples that want a unique location for their event. Only an hour's ferry ride from Lavrio, just outside Athens, this Cycladic island has everything going for it: a pretty faded Hora straddling two hills, a ritzy yacht scene around the mini resorts of Vourkari and Koundouros, and blindingly blue bays with some of the best wreck diving in Greece. The architecture has a strong local character using stone from the island and the landscape is equally charming. A location with the traditional and world-famous character of the Cyclades yet holding something completely different from all the other islands.
Surviving a pandemic has proven to many of us that a celebration with your closest and dearest is all you need to mark a milestone as important as an engagement! Beautifully captured by KOSTIS MOUSELIMIS, we're loving the contemporary vibe to this island celebration.
