If you are wondering whether foreign nuptial traditions can apply to Greece, then take a look at a successful Hindu wedding in Athens Greece. The exact location was the extremely romantic Athenian Riviera!

It was back in the USA when the Indian couple, Simi and Nisheeth, took the lifetime decision to tie the knot. But that wasn’t enough for them. They wanted to make their wedding day count more than any other day of their life together.

So they easily come up with the perfect unconventional wedding plan: why not arrange an exceptional three-day Hindu wedding in Greece?

After contacting us as one of the best professional wedding planners in Greece, we dealt with all the necessary arrangements in some of the main landmark venues in Athens. Our primary goal was to make sure that we could get far beyond the couple’s expectations, in order to give them an unforgettable Hindu wedding experience in Greece!

And, of course, promising and fruitful cooperation made it much easier, elegant, and even more remarkable than they imagined!

Take a closer look at one of the most emblematic Indian weddings we take pride in planning.

A colorful Hindu Wedding in Athens, the Greek capital

Day one initiated the wedding preparations with a promising welcome dinner reception at the beautiful seaside Hotel. An exquisite, cozy atmosphere was the perfect chance for all the guests and both the families to get to know each other for the upcoming wedding in Greece.

On day two, a Sangeet event, an unmissable part of the Hindu wedding tradition, brought the families and friends together in an unforgettable musical pre-wedding celebration.

Dancing along the traditional Indian desi-vibes, all the guests, dressed in their most colorful and blingiest clothes and jewelry, brought down their barriers and mingled in a super-fun celebration, dedicated to the bonding of the couple.

A spiritual nuptial Hindu bonding

Day three started early with the traditional Religious Indian wedding rituals according to the Chura and Haid custom.

Vibrant colors, floral arrangements as marigolds, and a chic festive atmosphere signed the jubilant wedding affair.

After the separate preparation of the couple, the arrival of Nisheeth on a stunning white horse marked the beginning of the wedding ceremony at a private wedding venue, with a stunning view in Athens Riviera.

Symbolizing the initiation of Simi in her new stage of life, her hands and feet were traditionally covered in elaborate mehndi designs, depicting the signs of good luck, love, happiness, fertility, and protection from the bad spirits.

The wedding ritual started with a small Varmala ceremony, where the stunningly dressed couple exchanged wedding garlands under a big Mandap, decorated with imposing lights and heart-warming fresh flowers.

 

Traditional Hindu wedding ceremony

The main wedding ceremony followed all the typical Indian traditions and meanings, from the Sari, the henna tattoos on the body, the shiny gold jewelry on the hairstyle, and, above all,  the symbol of fire and the vows in Sanskrit, which made all this one imposing nuptial ritual.

Choosing the power of the gold and red colors, representing wealth, happiness, and good fortune, both Simi and Nisheeths’ outfit provided a dramatic, grandiose color scheme to the ritual. Based on silk in red color, and covered in flowers, they are both looking towards the prosperity and bloom of their spiritually united life.

The after-wedding party lasted until the early hours of that warm morning. Wild dance performances and heart-warming smiles were deponents of a surely pleasant and unforgettable experience under the night Athenian sky.
