HAPPY 1ST ANNIVERSARY TO OUR REAL-LIFE RUSSIAN TATLER BRIDE & GROOM, ALINA AND PATRICK

In honour of their first wedding anniversary, we wanted to share the story of Alina & Patrick’s incredibly beautiful wedding which took place in Greece in late August 2013. The fabulous wedding story was published over six pages in Russian Tatler earlier this year and was described as ‘the wedding of the year’.

The stunning celebration took place at the Bride’s parent’s private villa, set on the Mediterranean coast of the Greek Peloponnese Peninsula. The bride wore not one, but three sensational gowns over the two-day wedding from designer Elie Saab, Zuhair Murad and Dolce & Gabbana. Alina and her bridesmaids enjoyed Peggy Porschen gem encrusted cupcakes as they had their hair and makeup done.

The ceremony was held in the garden and was presided over by the Mayor of Kalamata. The beautiful bride walked down the aisle to ‘Moon River’. Afterwards guests enjoyed a luxurious evening reception hosted by Russian television personality Ivan Urgant with performances from Beth Ditto and a concert programme from the Ballet Moiseyev.

Peggy Porschen was asked to personally fly over with a team of four expert chefs a week before the wedding to create the magnificent seven tier bespoke wedding cake. Each ivory tier was baked on site and decorated with delicate white sugar lace, with clusters of hand-crafted sugar Dahlias, Roses, Hydrangea and Snowberries to match the bridal bouquet and reception flowers.

Peggy was asked to present the cake to the couple at the evening reception and the first slice of heavenly Red Velvet was auctioned for charity – What a lovely couple!

Each guest was given a bespoke Peggy Porschen iced cookie as their wedding favour. Pink cookies were given to female guests and blue for the males. Each cookie was decorated with hand-piped detailing and the happy couple’s unique monogram.
