Claire & Robin   ♥    Spetses, Greece

Photographer:   Anna Roussos

 

The Greek island of Spetses has nudged its way on to my must-visit list. Always keen to visit somewhere a little less discovered, this peaceful spot is off the beaten Greek island-hopping track and has certainly kept its character and charm, with a horse and carriage still being the locals preferred transportation.

 

Claire and Robin wisely chose to emphasize the natural beauty of their chosen destination wedding location rather than detract from it, by using sympathetic styling and neutral detailing. Claire looked angelic in a timeless Jenny Packham gown, offset with vintage jewellery and a delicate white bridal bouquet, whilst her groom Robin complimented her and their theme perfectly in a stylish neutral suit.

 

The darling duo tied the knot outdoors, surrounded by nature and their loved ones, at an ancient amphitheater; olive trees and an abundance of off-white decorated the altar. The elegant Poseidonion Grand Hotel then hosted their stylish garden reception and the attractive attention to detail continued in the form of peacock print table name cards, olive branch decorations and soft candlelight.

 

All of the romance and the pure wedding pretty of Claire and Robin’s day, was captured by the amazing Anna Roussos.

“When Claire and Robin told me that they were planning to get married in Spetses at the Poseidonion Grand Hotel, I got really exited. This is one of my favourite hotels in Greece. I can photograph every corner of this stylish hotel without ever getting bored! But when they told me that the ceremony would take place in the ancient amphitheater of Spetses, then I started to count the days to their wedding day!”

“Claire was a stunning bride!! I just loved her very sophisticated, stylish and sexy dress by Jenny Packham. Claire made the whole place shine when she appeared on the aisle. And I saw tears in Robin’s eyes as Claire, his bride, was walking towards him with her dad.”

 

“The ceremony was beautiful and so peaceful: the old amphitheater was decorated in a lovely fashion with olive trees, lavender flowers and papel picado garlands. All guests were seated on the steps of the old theater and Claire and Robin stood in the middle as they exchanged their vows.”

“After a few refreshing drinks, all the guests walked together with the couple down the hill towards the main road to go to the reception venue: Poseidonion Grand Hotel. What about me? I stole this lovely couple for some photos around the island, while the guests were enjoying the cocktail hour.”

 

“Local people were cheering the newly weds, wishing them all the happiness, as they were riding though the little streets of Spetses. I think it was a truly unforgettable experience for Claire & Robin.”
