Hatzi Mansion is elegant, classic, historic and overflowing with old world romance. Today’s wedding is the perfect example of Hatzi Mansion at it’s best. Heavenly white flowers, a stunning bride in a chic, limited edition Mi-Ro Design dress (www.mi-ro.gr) and one of the most dreamy wedding scenery we’ve ever seen. Lucky for us, Costas Kalogiannis, with www.kstudio.gr was there to capture every last detail, all planned by Hatzi Mansion’s event organising team. Check out the full gallery for more inspiration:
The gorgeous couple tied the knot in a ceremony by the sea, in Saint Nicholas church, at golden hour. Bride was escorted by her dad and two professional violinists from www.artisticproductions.gr, making sentiments reach their peak.
The bride shares:
“Our acquaintance with Christos took place in the work environment. We both worked in a large multinational company,the one in the sales department and I in the marketing department. However, our professional relationship did not take long to develop into a strong love. The proposal was made this summer on the island of the Knights, in Rhodes, in a romantic and fairytale setting. Specifically, in Panagia tou Bourgou, a 14th century stone church, an example of chivalrous architecture that takes you back in time.”
“The bridal bouquet was made exclusively of white peonies tied together with a simple white ribbon. Peonies are chosen because they symbolize good luck and romance and favor love, lust and love.”
Tatiana’s favorite ceremony moment:
“Favorite moment in the mystery was, when the priest said, “The woman to fear (respect) the man.” Everyone was waiting for me to step on the groom or even not react at all. But I turned and gave him a tender kiss on his cheek.”
After ceremony guests were welcomed in a stunning set up in Hatzi Mansion main caldera, for the cocktail hour. Their view was an array of crystal chandeliers, with the two primary ones over the dance floor draped with greenery and florals.
The flower decoration was in classic creamy white and green colour scheme with centre pieces and flower creations full of hydrangeas, roses, buttercups, lisianthous and peonies. Guests tables were topped with oversized creations in overflowing style with greens and blooms, all surrounded by candlelights. The head table was a statement piece with loose garlands full of flowers. Its lighting was enhanced in addition to candles at various heights and with “curtains” of fairy lights that ran all over its surface and ended up on the lawn, giving a refined ambient atmosphere.
In the centre of the pool a special deck installation was hosting the talented performers of www.artisticproductions.gr in a string trio presence, who, turned the cocktail time into a true spectacle playing music from a wide repertoire from classic songs to jazz theme ones, the whole welcoming in Hatzi Mansion was something truly immersive.
As day turned slowly into night, in Hatzi Mansion, Tatiana and Christos’s guests were treated to a buffet style meal of traditional Greek cuisine with the wood oven of the Mansion the main protagonist.
And the ultimate surprise!!
Tatiana and Christos had chosen to play for their party and first dance, the live Pop band “ Melisses” (melisses_official ) who created an unexpected entrance and dancing experience. Their presence served as the ultimate kickoff to Tatiana & Christos wedding celebration and gave loved ones a glimpse into “hot” summer nights out.
The couple say:
“Our favorite moments are so many from the reception. It was a fantastic and frantic party that we enjoyed with our families and good friends. However, one highlight of the evening was our first dance, which was a huge surprise for all the guests. The lights dimmed, the headlights lit up the track, we held each other tightly by the hand and our dance began. Melisses appeared on stage and sang live “The Wave” just for us. “My love, I am writing you a poem, I would like to live in a wave …”. We really felt like we were dancing on a wave, in the sounds of a wonderful melody … me and Christos … in our first dance as a couple”
Cocktails, listed and signature ones, by the Clumsies and Barflies,( www.barflies.gr ) were served keeping energy high. The DJ of Hatzi Mansion and Loud and Clear Entertainment (www.loudandclear.gr) Leonidas Papadakis (@Leonidas Papadakis) provided an uplifting party atmosphere all night!
The beat of the party and the vivid atmosphere was completed with the appearance of www.bnwdrums.com who drum-music, rythm and energy created a unique happening!
It was an incredible evening filled with enchantment and love. The result was breathtaking to say the least and brought the couple’s elegant wedding dreams to life!!
