Equality and inclusion

One of the most frequently asked questions from couples in the LGBTQ+ community, is if we can find a venue that will feel safe and inclusive for their happiest day.

Although the law in Greece still needs to be updated in order to include same sex couples getting legally married, the option for a civil partnership has extended to include same sex couples since 2015. This means that more and more couples decide to move to the next chapter of their lives, therefore, there are plenty of options for same sex weddings to take place at!

The coast of Athens

Athens is famous for the legacy of the ancient Greeks and the most touristic spots are usually Plaka, Monastiraki, the Acropolis, and generally the city center. However, Athens is really diverse, with different sites and settings to explore, making it the ideal destination for travelers who can’t decide if they would prefer to visit a historic city, relax all day on the beach, or party all night long, until sunrise.

With the help of our professional wedding vendors, who specialize in destination weddings in Greece, you can enjoy all the aspects of the city following the itinerary that we will create for you!

Our beautiful brides chose to have their wedding celebration on the Athenian Riviera, the sea-side part of Athens. Their wedding photos featured a stunning sea-view, elegant decorations, and their most honorable (and fluffy) guest, their lovely corgi.

The beginning of Agnieszka & Akivia’s wedding day

The only thing that can make a person look beautiful, is their happiness. However, when a professional photo shooting is involved, it only makes sense to have an expert take care of your look for the day. For that reason, our brides arrived to their venue in the morning, and got started on all the necessary preparations.

Our trusted collaborator for bridal hair and makeup made sure to bring out their natural beauty, highlight their features and keep them looking fresh and luminous, all day and all night long!

Akivia and Agnieska were so happy on their wedding day, that they could not stay away from each other, even when getting ready for their big moment!

The symbolic wedding ceremony

In the afternoon, their guests started arriving to the Athenian Riviera. The wedding venue was decorated in fresh flowers. The pinks and whites accented the blue of the sea in the backdrop, creating a colorful, yet elegant setting. Crystal bubbles were hanging from the canopy, giving the feeling of a scene straight out of a fairytale.

The ceremony was simple, and touching. The speeches were warm and heartfelt, and the two brides could not take their eyes off of each other. And the guests couldn’t help but stare at them with tears of happiness in their eyes.

The wedding reception

After the ceremony, the two brides took photos with their friends and family, they then went to take their wedding photos, and after the sun went down, it was time for dinner. The playful and loving relationship that Agnieszka and Akivia have, really showed in their first dance, when they decided to do the robot dance, instead of slow-dancing! What a unique and fun couple they are!

Our team was delighted to be part of their destination wedding, and we wish them to have the same kind of love and energy, for many, many years to come!
