From the beautiful Bride… I am the type of girl who doesn’t like the spotlight, a bit different from most brides.

We always knew we wanted to get married overseas. Such an amazing experience and it creates an unforgettable story to tell in the future.

Benny and I were flicking through travel magazines and a colour picture of Santorini caught my eye. The beautiful white buildings, blue doors and spectacular views. I then showed Benny that same picture and our immediate decision was yes! Santorini it is!

We thought it looked like heaven on earth and now from experience we can say its exactly that! So the searching began.

I’d be lying if I said it was stress free. The thought of organising a wedding alone comes with its difficulties but to organise one on the other side of the world definitely has it’s challenges. Though once we found the right people to work with us, wedding planner, photographer, videographer, venue etc it all just fell into place.

The rest as you can see is history and we couldn’t be more proud of what we created with our fantastic team of experts.

If you’re thinking about getting married in Santorini, don’t think twice, it’s the best choice we could’ve possibly made!!

From Tie The Knot In SantoriniPlanning & designing with Katie and Benny their elopement in Santorini was absolutely delightful!! They are a couple full of positive energy and had so many great ideas for their wedding!

Opting for a modern feeling, Katie decided having a vivid color palette: pink, coral, purple and gold elements! I absolutely loved the idea and could not wait to bring it to life! We used gorgeous flowers to add to this color scheme, such as peonies, ranunculus, dahlias and roses that were used for the stunning bouquet and centerpieces.

We also tried to complement this bold palette with a more vintage look, which perfectly matched the natural Santorini backdrop. Our goal was for the wedding’s style to be in absolute balance with the surrounding environment. Vintage table and chairs from a private collection were brought to their private terrace for the romantic dinner. And, we also added vintage details to the tablescape, such as the gold candlesticks and glasses that I found at a flea market in Athens.

What made the wedding even more exciting was the fact that we also used personalized items: The wooden cake stand was made just for them by Benny’s father! Katie’s father created the lovely VW miniatures that were carrying their wedding rings. It was such a lovely way to have their beloved ones present, through the items they crafted for their wedding day!

It truly was a beautiful day! It had it all: love, happiness and beautiful set up! A wedding we will never forget.

Romantic Spring Wedding Inspiration in the Greek Mediterranean

When it comes to Greece, gorgeous is quite the understatement. The proof? This captured editorial from the lens of Yiota at Les Anagnou Photographers. Crafting a romantic frame graced with unequaled natural beauty, this inspiration whispers wonderment. See it all in the gorgeous gallery, here!

From Yiota at Les Anagnou PhotographersWe are true lovers of film photography, so we were thinking for some time with my husband that film would be a perfect match to the blissful setting of the Greek Mediterranean. 

We reached out to the talented wedding planner Harilena Giatra from “Live Love” and she was very excited from the very first moment to do a photo shoot that would fulfill our initial thoughts! Her creativity and the whole team working on her side was just perfect and we were very pleased with the whole approach and how attentive everyone was, down to the last detail.  
Our goal for this editorial was to create a genuinely romantic frame for a memorable wedding that would whisper softly to the hearts of the guests…More here: 

We chose CASA e CAMPO by Dipnosofistirion event venue in Athens, for its mesmerizing location oozing with unequaled natural beauty. Upon arrival in a beautiful garden surrounded by olive trees, tall cypress trees and lush vegetation reminiscent to the Mediterranean basin, the azure blue of the large swimming pool serves as the ultimate antithesis and captivates the eye.  
 Since we are officially in the heart of springtime, we wanted to gloriously accent the wedding’s décor with white rose bouquets embraced by delicate beige lace that was perfectly executed by Red Box Days.

The wedding invitation created by Atelier-Invitations places guests right in the mood with its romantic calligraphy and its shades of pure white and mustard. The reception tables are set in light and warm earthy colors upon which features the fine white porcelain dinnerware highlighted by a golden-bronze touch. The art-de-la-table is teamed with ultra fine crystal champagne and wine glassware, plus, impressive cutlery with a golden-bronze finish, all provided by White Lilac. The elegant furniture used in the photo shoot were provided by ZaZoo Event Rentals.  

The tender blue pure cotton napkins placed within the dishes in the shape of a bow, constitute the colorful detail of the romantic concept. Cheese varieties and grapes within the setting were prepared by Dipnosofistirion catering, constituting the most appropriate gastronomic accompaniment to the selection of exuberant local wines that are to be served. The marvelous wedding-cake was created by Criollo Pâtisserie. 

The bride launched a minimalistic wedding dress by Madame Shou Shou with large bow and open back which fell loosely right down to the ankles. Hairstylist and make-up artist, Spiros Samoilis, created a chignon and kept the bride’s make-up simple in a way that manifests the innocence and romanticism a Mediterranean wedding entails. 

At the end of this magnificent photo shoot, the whole crew was marvelously dined and wined courtesy of Dipnosofistirion catering. It was such a delight for all of us to finish the project with such delectable tastes!

Dreamy Mykonos Island Resort Wedding

Can you even imagine getting to say I do to your favorite person in the world overlooking the gorgeous island of Mykonos? It sounds too good to be true, but for this lucky (and lovely) couple, that was their reality. Their nearest and dearest came from all over the world to watch them start their lives together, and I have a sneaking suspicion it was a beyond memorable day for all involved. See more from Brosnan Photographic here.

From Brosnan PhotographicMelody and Mike chose Greece as the common ground for their wedding with guests traveling from the US and Taiwan. A small chapel at the resort provided the backdrop to their outdoor ceremony overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. The Utopia at the Mykonian resort held the unique restaurant where guests dined and danced to views of the setting sun over the balcony. Melody wore a soft flowing wedding gown by Lazaro. Being a designer, Melody’s talents transcended across many aspects of the day including styling much of the decor and designing the wedding invitations.

Eleni from Love4Wed… The rustic ambiance of the historic hall in the Porto Palace Hotel with the open wood beam ceiling and the stone walls served as inspiration for the Rustic Glam photo shoot coordinated by Love4Wed in collaboration with the Greek wedding magazine Cozy FairyTales. It was incredible honor to work with such immensely passionate wedding artists that hands down created an unsurpassed elegant wedding vision with a rustic charm. Their talent is definitely second to none. It was wonderful and a true experience watching the reception hall transform into a picture perfect wedding setting we had envisioned. The earthy and chic neutral colors were combined with delicate white flowers and the gold details from the table settings added the perfect amount of glitz and glam. To say that we fell in love with the stunning wedding dresses and the dashing groom’s attire is an understatement. It was such an amazing experience and I am definitely beyond excited to share with you every single stylish detail captured in the most wonderful way possible by photographer Nikos P. Gogas.

Romantic Destination Wedding in Santorini

If there was ever a wedding to evoke immense wanderlust in all, this right here is it. Captured by George Pahountis and Wedfilms, this whole destination celebration seems out of a movie, from the band serenading outside the ceremony to the epic views of Santorini. Stella & Moscha of Exclusive Greek Island Weddings created a masterpiece and I’m pretty sure it doesn’t get more amazing than this.

From Stella And Moscha, Exclusive Greek Island Weddings… Andriana and Alex’s Destination Wedding weekend was the perfect blend of relaxation, elegance, celebration and honoring roots. Set on the stunning island of Santorini in Greece, each moment of the day was full of beautiful vintage details, old world charm, bright skies and a spirited group of guests ready to celebrate the bride and groom. The ceremony took place at the Cathedral Church of Santorini on the cliff-edge overlooking the volcano. The couple wanted to honor their heritage so in true Greek style Alex waited for the Bride outside the church whilst Andriana was serenaded by local musicians; a custom which has survived through the centuries. Champagne cocktails and dinner followed at the La Maltese Estate which undoubtedly has an extraordinary view of the uber-famous sunset of Santorini. Since this was an intimate wedding with 40 guests we set up a long table so this felt like a family gathering. It was truly touching to see the entire wedding saying a prayer before dinner with this dramatic background. One of our favorite details was the mirror ‘aisle’ that covered the centre of the entire dinner table filled up with candles and touches of silver and gold creating a wonderful vintage-like sparkle. A mix of porcelain and glass vases filled with lush bouquets of hydrangeas, orchids and roses complemented the look. Adding to this the sun just hitting the water right in front of them making it sparkle, and enough clouds in the sky to make a perfect soft box for photos. A Greek band made sure there was enough ‘syrtaki’ whilst the mighty-talented Showtime DJ’s kept everyone on the dance floor until the early morning hours. The wedding had the couples stamp all over it, whilst also paying homage to what the island stands for. And all this captured perfectly by George Pahountis.

From The Bride… Our parents have been longtime family friends and a couple of years ago we found ourselves at the same wedding – fate may have played a role when were were seated next to each other at the rehearsal dinner. Immediately Alex and I felt that we had known each other for years and could not stop chatting all evening. I returned back home after the wedding weekend to find the most beautiful bouquet of flowers sent by Alex. Although we were living in different cities this did not deter our mutual enchantment. Our relationship grew stronger through the years and last Christmas Alex asked me to be his wife! While trying to decide where and how we would marry, all of the possibilities were thrilling! We knew that we wanted something small and intimate. Both Alex and I share the common thread of having family from Greece. When we were discussing where to have our wedding it seemed that no other venue would suffice. We were married on September 16th at sunset overlooking the most picturesque views of Santorini. Santorini was the perfect location for this magical and momentous occasion. Our style was very much classic with vintage old world glamour. Ethereal, dreamlike… romantic. Candle light… We could not be happier with the way our story unfolded.
