Dreamy modern wedding at Pyrgos Melissourgou

M & N Fairytale Wedding at a 350 years castle in Greece

This dreamy July wedding was celebrated outdoors in Greece. The 17th century castle of Pyrgos Melissourgou is located in the southern part of Attica and offers stunning sea views and unique sunsets for lovers. It is one of the oldest and most historic residences in Greece and has been in a family ownership since 1836. The couple Mary and Nikolas wanted a romantic, dreamy and modern wedding to celebrate their love. Family, friends and the bride’s 95-year-old grandfather traveled from the U.S. to enjoy a fabulous night at the castle.

The couple was married with a Greek ceremony, the open air setting was magical with a small church in the background. A string duet with a violin and cello gave the atmosphere the royal festive touch Mary had wanted for her bridal entrance. Beforehand there was a flower girl and in pairs the closest walked in, as is customary in the USA, the bridesmaids and groomsmen. A very special moment was when the bride walked down the aisle with her father. The later the evening, the more beautiful the fairy lights shone and the highlight was a fireworks display in the night sky. The Greek food and the fantastic party with lots of dancing enchanted the couple and the guests until late evening and will remain in their memories for a long time.
