POSEIDONION SPETSES WEDDINGS
If you have been dreaming of experiencing your wedding like a wealthy dame or gent in the roaring twenties, then going for a Poseidonion wedding celebration will convince you why every centimetre of this grand hotel has been praised and adored by the royal families themselves.
As a well-versed Greece wedding photographer, let me tell you that Poseidonion is one of the most favoured destinations not only for brides and grooms but for movie stars alike. Celebrity engagements, A-lister honeymoons, and VIP weddings have taken place in its luxurious premises, among which the Royal Wedding of Prince Nikolaos & Tatiana Blatnik in 2010. Although the majority of weddings on Spetses island are of Orthodox or Catholic faith, the Poseidonion can host symbolic ceremonies as well as those of Protestant, Jewish and other religions.
Influenced by the French Riviera’s most luxurious hotels, the Poseidonion resembles the early 20th-century Carlton in Cannes and the Negresco in Nice. It was completed in 1914, and built to be the centre of high society. Today, the hotel has the same defining luxuries of the past, with period furniture, marble staircases, original English tiles and stately wood flooring that will make every wedding portraiture a dream.
As a Poseidonion Spetses Wedding Photographer I have had the pleasure of documenting the love of couples who wish to imbue their wedding celebrations with unique experiences. From post-wedding brunches to the finest wedding receptions, and from culinary journeys at the Bostani, and wedding guest cook-outs to multiple wedding guest activities, such as excursions, private boat sails, and languid nights at Ciné Titania, the island’s historic outdoor cinema from the 1960s which has been restored it to its former glory.
If you are considering to tie the knot in Spetses, trust your Spetses wedding photographer to let you in on a little secret about the unique experiences that a wedding in Spetses and a wedding celebration at Poseidonion Grand Hotel have to offer. Besides making for the perfect backdrop for your wedding photography Spetses island is a no-car zone, which means you can ride your way to the aisle on a horse-drawn carriage, or reach your ceremony venue on a sailboat and have the most romantic wedding portraits on the way.
Should you decide to exchange your vows in October you may find your nuptials soaked in the unique ambiance of the Tweed Run. Think classic bikes and chic appearances dominated by a vintage tweed dress code and English tradition, who overtake the island for three days. The cyclists indulge in leisurely rides through the Spetses countryside, stopping off at the local beauty spots and enjoying the charm of the island’s culture and surroundings.
The Spetses Classic Yacht Regatta in June is a unique 4-day event staged to the amazing backdrop of Poseidonion. With an early summer wedding in Spetses you and your guests will enjoy a series of classic yachts (Classic Boats, Traditional Caiques, Traditional Lateens, Dragons) form an exquisite parade, with crews from Greece and around the world.
If you are a bride and groom who adore vintage cars you may wish to hold your wedding during the Classic Car Rally, where antique vehicles of every class and calibre make their way from the mainland across the sea to Spetses. Capturing your wedding portraits among shiny bonnets and silver fenders glimmering under the Greek sunshine is a rare sight, and working as Poseidonion Spetses wedding photographer during the classic car rally has been one of the most amazing adventures of my life.
