If you are looking for inspiration for a luxurious and chic wedding in Costa Navarino, you have come to the right place. As a wedding photographer, I had the privilege to be taken to the elegant Costa Navarino in Messinia to document Abbey and Costas’ union. Located near Pylos, in a remote corner of the Peloponnese, and sitting on the Ionian Sea, Costa Navarino offers everything one could ask for: white sand beaches surrounded by old ruins, vineyards and fields abundant with delicious fruit and vegetables. While it is known mostly for its state-of-the-art golf course, it is actually a fantastic venue for celebrations. It is no wonder that the couple decided not to mess with the area’s insurmountable beauty, opting for a minimal wedding in terms of the décor, letting the diverse landscape shine instead. A country chic atmosphere was the vibe of the day, with pastel pink and peach colors dominating the elegant space. The natural beauty of Messinia was complemented by décor using fresh seasonal fruit from the area, which was also generously gifted to the guests in baskets, along with olive oil (and silky pashminas for the ladies!) honoring the area’s agricultural tradition. After the Orthodox ceremony held at the premises’ St Samson chapel within the Navarino Dunes, the new husband and wife and their loved ones enjoyed a fun-filled reception, featuring Greek dancing, dollar-throwing and even hoola-hooping. An unforgettable touch was the decadent wedding cake, garnished with juicy figs, making what was a sweet day even sweeter. All in all, the sophistication and unparalleled location of Costa Navarino with its spectacular backdrop of verdant land and sparkling sea make it an ideal choice for weddings. Abbey and Costas’ wedding was no exception and it will certainly always be cherished as a memory of a lifetime by them and their guests.
