A stylish proposal + engagement shoot in Greece
Craving a beautiful getaway? Photographer Thanos Asfis and Mosaïque Event Design are whisking us away to Greece for a proposal and engagement adventure with stylish couple Alessandra and Ethan. This nomadic duo hit all of Greece’s lust-worthy spots, from the architecture marvels of Athens to coastal drives to and finally an island escape. If Greece is on your bucket list, you’ll want to take note of all the stunning sights below!
Exploring new horizons, inspired by the exciting interplay between luxury, culture, escapism, and most importantly romance that Greece evokes, we set out to craft Ethan & Alessandra’s wedding proposal. Ethan’s request was that we design an uber-romantic getaway, sure to include all his beloved’s favourite things, ensuring a set of experiences that would sweep her off her feet, and give the couple a chance to celebrate their engagement with true soul and purpose.
On day two of their engagement adventure, the couple took in the views on Pnyx, including a picturesque hike amidst the ancient olive groves of Fillopappou and the National Observatory.
Having already spent two and a half days experiencing Athens’ spectacular show of nature and sites, the invitation to privately dine at the Roof Garden of Cocomat Hotel Athens meant dressing to their nines and getting ready to indulge in the cosmopolitan Kolonaki vibes. Little did Alessandra know our team had not only curated the perfect Michelin-star chef menu, but dressed up the terrace with her fave blooms, colours, and accents. Soon as she entered the scene, Ethan got down on his knee and this killer-view blurred for a few seconds as Ethan asked her to be his for life!
The bride-to-be donned a sumptuous gown by Beyonce’s favorite designer Celia Kritharioti. The dream!
Alessandra is an early bird, and this time there was a good reason for Ethan to insist they take breakfast away from the center. Driving outside the city’s urban limits to Saronida on a Triumph Spitfire, the coastal stretches of Anavyssos and Cape Sounion was an experience that brought together the elemental, enthralling beauty of the couple’s destination, and culminated with a romantic portrait session to point the lovers’ gaze to the right direction, each-other!
These photos are SO good, right?
Last but not least, the couple set off from the Cape Sounio Marina to explore the Greek islands. Le sigh!
Yep, sounds like a pretty spectacular trip to us. Thanks to the team below for sharing!
