Amelie & Salim
BRIEF : Amelie and Salim, an interfaith couple from London, wanted to do something out of the ordinary for their wedding, which would reflect their personalities and shared love of travel. We proposed dividing the celebrations into two sections: home and abroad. For the formal part of the wedding we suggested the civil ceremony be conducted on the London Eye with a private dinner for family at The Ivy, followed two days later by flying a group of friends to Mykonos for a Buddhist blessing and a weekend of celebrations.
As busy professionals, it was imperative to Amelie and Salim that all aspects of this spectacular two-centre wedding were taken care of by us. They specifically requested that all decorations and favours were shipped to Greece from the UK and required us to take the reins on everything from location scouting, venue, flights and accommodation to flowers, menus, music and fireworks. We were to be on site at both locations, ensuring a smooth transition between the two and coordinating everything from Champagne on board the London Eye to excursions on the island.
RESULT : The London Eye was the perfect backdrop for the formalities. Their guests were divided into two pods and by the time they were officially married they were surrounded by the sights of London. With a crooner for entertainment at The Ivy and a stunning chocolate box cake, the UK wedding was an elegant, stylish affair. The beautiful island of Mykonos was the perfect setting for the second part of this celebration of love. Luxury boutique hotel Bill & Coo provided breathtaking views across the Aegean Sea from its twinkling infinity pool and offered peaceful seclusion for this special occasion. Over the course of the weekend, guests were treated to a string of private boat trips and barbecues on the beach, culminating in Amelie and Salim reaffirming their commitment to each other with a simple Buddhist ceremony at sunset. Adding to this already unforgettable wedding was a very special Buddhist ritual using lanterns and ribbons, carried out by their closest friends. Dinner was served beside the infinity pool, followed by the release of paper wishing lanterns into the sky and an informal party which lasted long into the night.
