The dress and the venue; aren’t they the most important part of a wedding? Well, we have you covered because this editorial not only has it got dresses from one of the most talented Greek designers but also the location is a true hidden gem.
Located in the centre of Athens, Bageion is a former hotel dating back to the late 19th century. After being closed for more than 70 years, it opened its doors again for the Athens Biennale 2015-2017 and of course for our special photoshoot 🙂
We used the old “Ball Room” mainly because of its incredible natural light (we wanted to avoid using artificial lighting) and its history (I mean look at the texture of the walls and the gold mirror!). As stunning as the room is, we had to find a designer whose work is equally unique, and Celia Kritharioti was just the right person. Being the owner of the oldest Greek fashion house, her gowns are the ideal combination of femininity, finesse and elegance!
The Celia Kritharioti House of Couture is synonymous with sophisticated elegance, designing perfection and intriguing glamour.
In the early 1920s, the Bageion became a spiritual refuge for the young writers of the time and became an important place where a new generation of Greek Literature was formed.
