After Amr and Linda had their civil ceremony in Cairo, they knew they wanted to commemorate their union in style. As a bride from a foreign country, Linda was searching for the perfect wedding venue in Athens. That’s when I stepped in ( wedding designer to the rescue ) and knew that Island Art & Taste was the place to absolutely capture Greece’s vibrant vibe and natural appeal, which the couple was seeking.

It’s no secret that Island Art & Taste hosts the most wanted, high-profile weddings in Athens, and is often visited by world class movie stars, fashion designers and celebrities. With its stunning views of the sea, that venue realm looks like that is where dreams become reality. The perfect location to create a one-of-a-kind wedding for Amr and Linda.

From the bride and groom’s preparations to the moment they came together, the day was filled with the ultimate comfort and elegance of the venue’s Private House, where wine, dancing and bridal beauty rituals were combined. In the spontaneous mood of celebration, the highly curated setting felt as if it naturally happened! The abstract floral arrangements and the idyllic setting, all enhanced the confident character of the occasion and its unspoken luxury.

Reaching that majestic sunset hour, the entire property was transformed, overlooking the pool and the ocean landscape. A picturesque floral arch marked the scenery, with flowers arranged in a somewhat untidy manner that mirrored the natural beauty of the surroundings. Chamomile and eucalyptus set the tone for the floral language of the occasion; soft but refined.

The estate’s private ocean was not spared, hosting the most romantic promenade along the shoreline right after the ceremony, capturing stunning photographs. It was then time to join the friends and family for a dreamy wedding reception, with the utmost catering care, with views that left our guests speechless, amidst extraordinary florals.

Overlooking the ocean and illuminated by twinkling fairy lights, it was a scene that exuded luxury and charm. The focal point of the reception was the table, adorned with a beautiful floral runner of roses and eucalyptus.

To further elevate the atmosphere of this luxurious Athenian night, the pulse was infused with the mystique and vibing ambiance of the Arabian sound identity. With the sounds of Disco Misr, the groom’s very own musical creation known for breathing new life into Arabic pop music, we set the stage for an extraordinary celebration. The irresistible beats filled the air, beckoning everyone to hit the dance floor.

The blend of the Egyptian legacy and its modern manifestation, combined with the enchanting venue of Island Art & Taste, turned their destination wedding in Athens into an unparalleled experience.

Luxury and love intertwined seamlessly throughout the day, making it a celebration that exceeded all expectations.

If you are a bride or groom seeking a truly unique and unforgettable wedding experience, I will be happy to be a part of your international endeavours! You can rest assured that every detail will be meticulously attended to. As a signature custom-made event designer, I will orchestrate a wedding in Athens that perfectly captures your vision and exceeds your wildest dreams.
