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

Cocktails were enjoyed before guests were seated for dinner, feasting on traditional Greek dishes with a modern twist.  Table décor was minimalistic with small vases of flowers and candles scattered along the length of the tables.
