South African destination wedding with a touch of Greek spirit

Talita and Stewart come from South Africa. They live in Canada and had never been to Greece before. Well, not until their wedding. The island of Lesvos was their number one choice and how honored were we when they chose to get married under the Byzantine Castle of Molyvos. Planning their wedding was a wonderful experience and a great task. From our first skype meeting we started talking about blending our cultures and creating the most elegant and authentic wedding. So we brought together Greece and South Africa. We added special touches to the decoration like the traditional beadwork birds on the olive trees centerpieces. The couple brought traditional Mandela shirts for the musicians and even the donkey man! The music was a splendid mix of both traditions, even the food was very well thought of. All the vendors were so eager to please this amazing couple and their friends and family who came to Lesvos from all different parts of the world. We are so lucky to have met them and we are so truly blessed that Talita and Stewart fell in love with Greece, here in Lesvos.

A big thank you to all the vendors that made this dream wedding a reality.
