A magical Hindu wedding that steps out of the ordinary in Athens Riviera
Simi and Nisheeth didn’t just want to experience another ordinary Indian wedding. They chose an unconventional way to write the prologue of their wedding story, with an emblematic Hindu Wedding in Athens Riviera.
Coming from the USA, our lovely couple couldn’t think of a more romantic, alluring destination for their matrimonial than the beautiful capital of Greece. They wanted to give a special touch to their big day, one that would not only make it unique but also memorable for themselves and their guests as well. So, they organized a deeply traditional three-day Hindu wedding celebration in Greece. Athens Riviera was the location of their preference, as the luxurious landmark of the gorgeous capital, a seaside paradise that would host the celebration of their mutual love and affection.
As the best professional wedding experts for Indian weddings in Greece we were really honored to have the chance to bring Simi and Nisheeth’s nuptial vision to life. During a fruitful collaboration, we listened carefully to all our couples’ wishes and needs and took care of all the necessary arrangements with carefully selected local vendors. We took their wedding as a personal matter and tried to make the best out of it.
The result? An extraordinary Indian wedding that surpassed their expectations and a happy-ever-after couple!
Writing an exemplary three-day Indian Fairytale in Athens, Greece
A wonderful pre-wedding celebration marked the beginning of this special matrimonial on day one. Everything started with a cozy dinner at a seaside hotel of Athens Riviera. The two families joined the celebration with anticipation and heartwarming smiles. Colorful clothes, heavy bridal jewelry, henna mehndi tattoo designs, sacred flames, and rose petals…all blessed ingredients in a series of traditional Hindu rituals that filled the atmosphere with a sacred Indian feeling.
On day two, a chic outdoor pool venue hosted an idyllic sunset Sangeet ceremony. Soft lighting and simple decoration created an elegant aesthetic, while the calm sea gave an eternal feeling to the event. Smart, colorful outfits filled the venue, and white round tables with chic floral decoration prepared everyone for an incredible Mehndi party. The celebration was set on fire when the desi-beat dropped, bringing everyone on stage to dance in the rhythm of traditional and mainstream Indian music till the early hours of the next morning!
Unfolding the Indian traditions at the heart of Greece
The traditional Indian wedding ceremony was the protagonist of the third day at a spacious private villa. The morning set off with the typical rituals of the Chura and Haid custom. Nisheeth made a grand entrance for his Groom Baraat on a gorgeous white horse, at a private wedding venue in Athens Riviera with a stunning sea view.
An imposing poolside mandap with fresh pink and white floral decorations and pink veilings created a fairytale setting for the official ceremony. Comfortable gold chairs were inviting the guests for a wonderful traditional wedding event. The same color scheme was followed on the white-dressed round tables with elegant flower decorations. Pure, natural, and earthy colors generated perfect harmony with the mountainous landscape.
The wedding ritual started with a short Varmala ceremony, where the bride arrived along with a festive procession. The lovely couple, dressed in the traditional golden and deep red colors, as the Indian customs suggest, -representing wealth, happiness, and good fortune- exchanged pink floral wedding garlands under the witnessing eye of their beloved guests, symbolizing the prosperity of their new, spiritually united life. Heart-warming smiles, intimate glances, kind words, and soft touches were deponents of a homey wedding atmosphere. The imposing view of the flames and the serenity of the landscape generated a sacred feeling for every witness of this wonderful wedding in Greece, making it special and unique for everyone.
When the night fell, the lights turned on, knocking up the senses for a mythical after-wedding party. The light, charming sound of a saxophone accompanied a delicious dinner, where everyone recharged their batteries for a wild night to follow. The soft lighting illuminated the atmosphere, casting a spell on that warm Athenian night. Wild dance performances and sincere smiles were deponents of a pleasant and memorable experience that would remain indelible in everyone’s heart and mind.
