This romantic and ethereal woodland wedding themed styled shoot comes to us from Sotiris Tsakanikas, based in Athina, Greece! Enjoy:

We started our shooting day with a boudoir session drenched in milky light, with our bride indulging in the love letters of her beloved one, and through the day we gradually set up different woodland locations for the couple’s stationery and pre-wedding fine details.

See more after the cut!


For the ceremony, my team envisioned a woodlot rite drenched in soft autumnal and alpine touches, where we staged a lush canopy, wooden pews, and an aisle made of lush floral installations.

Our wedding reception table was set in the heart of the forest amidst thick pines and oak trees. We wished to create an intimate celebration, where timberland cedars and fallen leaves interplay with deep greens, amber and gold hues, clean lines and the warmth of Persian nappery.

We opted for two wedding cakes, one styled with a velvet amber ribbon and golden wax seal and the second in tiny pinecones and greenery. Our stationery including invitations, place cards, and menus involved fine art calligraphy and all shades of green watercolor design to match the evergreen landscape, while our tableware was kept minimal and delicate infused with bottle green velvet favor envelopes secured with golden wax seals.

A solid velvet tapistry armchair was set next to our cozy welcome table adorned with beautiful sugary treats (confession here: none survived, they were so delicious after a long day’s shootings), artfully decorated bisquits and green frosted cupcakes, an array of splendid local cheese and dried fruit, as well as smaller decorative pieces that added to the glow.

A string of lights was hung over the reception table that was festooned with a massive installation of blooms in lieu of table runner. Garden roses, lisianthus, amaranthus, eryngium, penny gums, ruscus, silver brunia, and handsome arching stems enhanced the shape of our design and added an extra flourish.

The attractive feathery leaves on long curved stems added a delicate texture to all floral arrangements including the bridal bouquet, canopy, and runner. There was so much inspiration everywhere every moment so and impromptu use of our wooden gardener’s ladder rendered a few more creative shots. Our photographers literally wouldn’t stop clicking and as we paused to watch the shootings our smiles widened.
