Riding High | An Athenian Riviera Love Affair

It was just the pair of them. They eloped, riding high above the glittering surf of the Aegean Sea and the riviera, the wind rippling through their hair, the sun’s rays glancing off the endless, bleached road ahead. Their destination? The ancient weathered church of Agios Nikolaos, wrapped in the warm botanicals of Petridis LV. It was here the rebellious pair exchanged vows in their Athenian love affair and tied the knot their way, without any rules…

“Are you ready for the ride of your life?” Said styling connoisseur, Kiss From Fleur. And BOY were we. This captivating shoot, situated on an Athenian riviera, celebrates a couple’s wild love as they ride around the cliff top roads of Sounio. The bride, wearing Mairi Mparola’s achingly sultry, feathered wedding dress drenched in delicate peals is, in a nutshell, COOL AF. Teamed with shimmering vintage skull earrings by Vivienne Westwood, not to mention the effortless hair and make-up skills of Michalis Tsotras, her look is one that every modern, free-spirited bride wants to recreate. The groom, in his custom black suit by Sur Mesure, effortlessly matches her style credentials – especially on that vintage motor.

And, it is at the church of Agios Nikolaos where they exchange vows. With the iconic views of the temple of Poseidon in Sounion surrounding their celebration, this intimate moment is something of magic. Styled and designed by Anna of Kiss from Fleur, in collaboration with Ellwed, this beautiful, ancient building has been transformed into something from a dream. Wild, romantic florals by Petridis LV bloom from the church’s time-worn walls, while rustic wooden chairs by Rakor Ceremonies fill this space with life and love.
