A unique place within Athens’ city web, the Queen Amalia’s Tower, where tall trees lay their shadows and horses still gallop, was the setting for this blooming-styled shoot. Talented vendors joined forces to make a dreamy scene full of roses, pastel shades and purple butterflies (thanks to florist Jim Labraco).
Photographer Constantinos Tziamalis with Octograph Photo Stories aimed to travel back in time and create a wedding scenery full of romance when the Queen’s gardens were full of flowers and guests from all over the world gathered to have great feasts. And it looks straight out of a fairytale if you ask us!!
With this styled shoot, event designer/planner Ioanna Karatza + the rest of the team wished to show how Greece is more than the blue sea and the bright summer sun, and how couples choosing Greece as their wedding destination can have literally anything they can imagine on their wedding day! A magical scene can be created even within the big city as long as you have love for each other and great vendors by your side… and here is proof! Let’s see what this team conjured up!
It’s All in the Details
Atelier Invitations created these invites and vow booklets that matched perfectly with the bride’s butterfly shoes from Bella Belle Shoes!
She. Looks. Stunning! This embroidered, whimsical gown fit the day’s aesthetic perfectly! This dress by Made Bride by Antonea is so regal and feminine all in one. We love when brides really have fun with their wedding dress!
The groom is ready for the day dressed in his suit from Papadogamvros!
A Whimsical Ceremony in Greece

The ceremony area was created in front of the Tower’s west side and accessorized with this modern two-piece floral arch, while the tables were placed under the trees and were filled with fresh flowers and fruit.
Notice the bride’s funky jewels?! We love a good pair of statement earrings to dress up any bridal look!!
The Prince and His Princess
The young couple represented the modern romantic couples who still seek refuge in olden times to create their own fairytale today. The “prince” didn’t arrive on a white horse but on a classic black Triumph instead, and the “princess” wore flowers all over her ultra-contemporary gown and shoes.
If the shoe fits…wear it! Especially if it has butterflies on it! 🦋
Off they go! Now it’s time to party!
A Dinner Fit for Royalty
The vintage pink color was the protagonist of this picture-perfect dinner along with pastel shades of blue, purple, blush, and orange.
Well isn’t this gorgeous! This triple-tiered white cake by Pavlov’s Lab with cascading florals is simply too perfect for words!
When the sun set and the candles were lit, the atmosphere in the gardens truly reminded us of all the whimsy you’d see in a Disney film!
If Sleeping Beauty had a dinner party for her wedding reception…This would be it!! Congrats to the creative team for putting together this magnificent inspiration! You showed us a side of Greece we never knew existed!
