Immersed between The Greek Mythos & Earth
May I say that our wedding design and personal styling come from Mount Olympus – the abode of the Gods and the site of the throne of Zeus. Bride and groom styled outfits in gold-white satin fabrics, head-made dresses with imperial crowns, and Greek tiaras. The dress code for guests & staff totals white worked well.
A special place for Ceremony and reception
It was an ecological Pistachio Farm situated in the historical site of Valley with an amazing view to view to Greek Temples
Custom made blessing
Custom-made ceremony according to ancient Greek marriage traditions.
“Priest and Priestess” – special celebrants of the Cultural Historical Association of Akragas conducted the ceremony in a sacred place. The couple is then purified with seawater stored in a special vase of Greek Dinos.
Being water from the Ocean, and therefore primordial and sacred, it is characterized as pure owing also to its presence of salt, which symbolizes hospitality and the very birthplace of Aphrodite, the goddess of love. The five divinities convened for the marriage ceremony Zeus, Apollo, Artemis, and Aphrodite – will be called on to offer their benevolence upon the new family nucleus, which is taking shape via the hymns that will be recited by the priest for each divinity. During the priest’s invocations to the deities, there are offers of wine, seeds, and essences to the gods. Two foliate crowns, tied together by a white ribbon, are placed on the head of the spouses, to symbolize their union before the Gods.
Own composed music
The groom is a music composer and “We blend electronic and live sounds, singing, spoken meditations, and mantras to create a unique sonic experience. Each track is a microcosm of our life experience, taking you on a dance meditation journey. Each item in the brans collection is a time microcosm of the universe that draws upon the ancient tantric traditions of using an external sensory stimulus to elevate your awareness of metaphysical dimensions.
Alchemy is their debut sonic creation. “Born from our cosmic love, passion for music, and dalliance with mysticism, Antonia and I have been creating these transformational dance tracks for a while.”
