Cat & Eds’ summer Ithacan wedding
Meeting when Cat was on a family summer sailing holiday where Ed was the flotilla skipper, their shared passion for the sea soon became a shared passion for each other. A passion which lead Cat to joining Ed for a summer season of flotilla sailing, days off were spent exploring islands within the Ionian - Ithaca soon became their favourite and when Ed proposed the only island they considered for their wedding.
The ceremony and reception venue Myrtia, located on a mountainside overlooking Aflales Bay and across to Lefkada, down to Frikes and beyond. The unique restaurant and event venue ticked all the boxes for them – delicious unique dishes, stunning scenery and a relaxed vibe – perfect for their intimate wedding.
Cat’s dress with its deep ‘v’, open back, beaded detailing and full skirt was the perfect choice for the August heat, a pearl headband, combined with pearl drop earrings and pearl bracelet completed her bridal look. Wearing her hair down with gentle waves framing her light natural makeup
Bridal preparations took place at Likoudis Villas overlooking the picturesque village of Kioni. Cats’ two bridesmaids wore champagne toned dresses complimenting the suits worn by the Ed, the groom and his best man. Sipping champagne whilst assisting Cat and each other get ready for the celebrations ahead.
Their bouquets were a beautiful mix of soft white and pale pink roses, white lisianthus, coral chrysanthemums with pops of hot pink bougainvillea, the bridal bouquet along with the grooms buttonhole also included a beautiful white orchid.
Ed along with his bestman, his brother Will, wore stone coloured suits with white shirts and champagne coloured bowties, brown boat shoes completed the grooms look – getting ready at the waterside accommodation Byrons House in the heart of Kioni village.
Speeches were given at the end of dinner followed by Cat & Eds’ first dance and the cutting of the cake before the DJ upped the tempo kick starting the party.
