The popularity of destination weddings during the last decade has put certain places in the spotlight. Italy’s culture, art, and history as well as its dedication to beauty and style have transformed the country into one Lying along the southern coastal strip of the Greek capital, the Athens Riviera is synonymous with relaxed sophistication and elegance, while being one of the most coveted wedding locations in Greece. The Island Art and Taste, the most popular wedding destination in the area and one of the best Athens wedding venues, is an event facility complex consisting of six separate areas tailored to cater to any wedding size, from more intimate celebrations for a few guests, to large-scale affairs.
True to its name, the vibe and feeling one gets from any Island Athens Riviera wedding is that of being on a Greek island, while enjoying the privacy that all of the six spaces offer. The exquisite aesthetics and design of the interior and exterior spaces and the high-quality services promise to offer a memorable experience to all newlyweds and their guests.
The Private House, in particular, is a stunning villa with modern and minimalist decor featuring an oblong pool as well as a spacious garden area with manicured lawn spaces. Ceremonies usually take place under the pergola attached to the main villa building, while wedding receptions are celebrated in the villa’s gardens overlooking the azure waters of the Aegean. The stunning spaces of the Private House are complemented by the latest music equipment and make this particular event facility the perfect choice for an Island Athens Riviera wedding.
Mona and Pouria live in the UK but share common Iranian roots. Their destination wedding at the Athens Riviera was a formal, classy affair with a black-tie dress code and white and gold decoration. The day started with the couple’s preparation at the nearby The Margi hotel and was followed by a traditional Iranian ceremony and reception at the Island Private House. I loved every minute of Mona & Pouria’s Island Athens Riviera wedding and I feel lucky to have met couples like them during my years as an Athens wedding photographer.
