Be that your wedding bells chime in Sylvan or you that are experiencing a serious crush on an iconic
palace dotted with lush gardens, statues, and art of impossible to resist beauty, you will find Nicole and
Jameson’s Achilleion Palace Corfu wedding an absolute stunner.
Nicole and Jameson flew their closest and dearest in from Switzerland and the U.S. and everything they
had in store for them was about statement and grace. Who wouldn’t like to get prepped in a charming
garden cottage, corseted by rose bushes and have their ceremony in a secret forest?
Early into the big day, the bride-to-be enjoyed toasts of bubbly with her elegant squad soon to be
followed by First look portraits with her father while Jameson put on his something blue and had some
groom and family shots at the other side of the cottage.
Heading to the aisle, a pretty English garden bloom fused nook designed by the couple’s planner Belli
Momenti and their exquisite florist Leonidas Rammos awaited. Cocktails and warm welcomes certainly
kept Jameson on his toes. A classic cello and violin began to play and anticipation for the bride’s arrival
built up as the guests and groom watched the first bridesmaid arrive. And yet, we were simply taken by
the view to follow. Nicole and her two bridesmaids arrived on the back of white horses in a fairytale
There was emotion, there were happy tears and there was sweet love right there, as the super-in-love
couple couldn’t take their eyes off each other between readings and vows. After the ceremony and the
petal toss strewn exit everyone headed to the couple’s venue for the cocktail hour and we enjoyed some
alone time with our bride and groom.
From the picture-perfect entrance to its manicured gardens overflowing with blooms, its intricately
decorated central staircase, rising in geometrical flights, the gorgeously frescoed ceilings and its
sweeping garden terraces, which command eye-popping views, there’s everything to love about Nicole
and Jameson’s reception venue.
Set atop a steep coastal hill 12km south of Corfu Town, the Achilleion Palace was built during the 1890s
as the summer palace of Austria’s Empress Elisabeth, and if it is a good fit for an emperess it is certainly
a great one for a bride. We took our time capturing the newlywed’s portraits around the massive estate
until it was time for the reception, a cultivated dinner in the main ballroom, strewn with pretty wildflowers
and classic notes.
After cutting their gorgeous naked cake Nicole and Jameson headed to the terrace for their first dance
under the full moon, and if that doesn’t spell utter romance for you, we don’t know what does.
