Here’s a foolproof plan: find a rustic ancient Greek Orthodox chapel by the sea, dress it up with luxurious wedding crockery & invite a dapper looking couple in modern couture. Sound dreamy? It is!

Sent to us from German fine art wedding photographer Nina Wernicke, this Greek wedding inspiration fills every box in our dream wedding scene checklist. A traditional rustic venue, a sophisticated color palette, luxurious & modern wedding gowns, etherial seaside vibes – it truly has it all.

The gowns are stunning. First, we drool over an embellished, sparkling number by Iann Dey with a sexy keyhole neckline that adds considerable intrigue to a delightfully modest gown (appropriate still – we believe – for a chapel wedding).

Then, we’re wowed by layers and layers of cream-colored silk in the ultimate, ethereal Hannah Tikkanen gown that is just begging for Aegean sea breeze to blow through.

From Nina Wernicke

The inspiration and focus of this Editorial was the traditional Greek Orthodox church. The Orthodox Church is strongly connected to the Greek Nation. During the several occupations, the Orthodox Church made a great effort to preserve the Greek language, culture, traditions and the Orthodox faith.

The aim of this editorial was to recreate a Greek Orthodox wedding but with a modern-day spin. Traditions and rituals from this religion were incorporated in a non-traditional way and were representations of those rituals, rather than the actual act. The colour palette consisted of muted nudes and blushes, with an abundance of sweet peas, garden roses, clematis, ranunculi, and vines in the flower arrangements. The shoot took place in a tiny little chapel perched on the top of a hill right by the ocean, just a short drive out of Athens. An absolutely stunning and unique place to get married.
