A Santorini Proposal + Meet Our New Blogger Bride!

Camila Carril is easily one of London’s most fashionable residents, but she’s also a bride-to-be planning her biggest day yet. With help from Savvy Event Studio, she’s designing an Italian destination wedding but before she dives into the detail, Camila is sharing the proposal story that started it all. Read on to hear just how magical a “Will you marry me?” moment on Santorini can be.

Hi brides-to-be! My name is Camila and I am a fashion and lifestyle blogger at Camila Carril, where I share my daily outfits and passion for fashion as well as my travels and lifestyle in general! I am over the moon to be able to share with you the most amazing journey and year of my life on Style Me Pretty. I am getting married with the man of my life! Before I begin telling you our story, let me explain how I got here.

I am from Brazil and moved to London when I was 17 to finish my high school. I fell in love with London, it is so diverse and multi-cultural, I have made friends for life, lots of opportunities doors opened up to me and although sometimes it felt like a roller coaster with high and low moments, every time there was a lesson to be learnt. Years passed on, and I never left this place which I have now adopted as the city of my heart!

HOW WE MET

Four years ago I went out to a Mayfair club with my girlfriends, while we were dancing the night away listening to “we fell in love in a hopeless place”, I looked to my right and there he was: handsome, green eyes, tall and such a gorgeous smile! He asked my name and where I was from and the conversation begun. Later he told me he had to go because his friends wanted to leave but that he would like to take me out on a date and asked my number. I did not believe one word, I just told him “no”. He insisted. I then said: “OK, but you better make me not regret it!”, we both laugh about this today. Who would have imagined, to find my soulmate in such a hopeless place? I remember I didn’t even want go out that evening. It was all meant to happen, just when we least expected it!

HOW HE PROPOSED

Years later, on our fourth anniversary, while we were sailing away on a boat in the beautiful island of Santorini, he proposed. Minutes before, I laied my head on his heart and I could feel it was beating a thousand miles per minute. Then, my head was spinning with so many thoughts, is this really going to happen? A sudden excitement came from inside me and translated in tears, which I wiped away… I didn’t want him to see it. We were talking about everything, from the first time we met to our plans and some other silly things we both have done together, it felt like there was nothing else in the world apart from us and the sun which was setting in the horizon. It was beautiful. When the sun was about half hidden in the sea I got worried, for one lapse of second I thought it wasn’t going to happen anymore. He then stood up and asked me to come up so we could take a photo together. He got on his knee and we both were in tears. He said, “Camila Carril de Oliveira, I love you and I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Will you marry me?””

I’m so excited to share this journey with you!

Wildly Romantic Destination Greek Wedding Film

We’ve seen lots of gorgeous Greek weddings but have we have set our sights on Monemvasia in particular? We should, because it’s pretty amazing – so it’s no surprise that JP and Katie chose this beautiful spot to host their destination wedding. With Santorini Glam Wedding planning it all and Phosart Photography Cinematography filming away, we’ve got the goods right here – enjoy and let the wanderlust begin!

From Phosart Photography CinematographyMonemvasia, something out of the Middle Ages, stands on the rock as a “stone boat”, as described by our famous poet, Yannis Ritsos.

The unique beauty of the small stone streets and alleys dazzles every photographer and videographer and is an exceptional opportunity for shooting.

Katie and John chose to make their destination wedding at Kisterna Hotel, a location that made their wedding video even greater. A place with a gorgeous building through the olive groves in a wild beauty that travels us to the past. The decoration and planning arranged by their wedding planner, Santorini Glam Weddings, highlighted even more the beauty and magic of this area.

Our couple, so much in love, among family and friends, made their love vows and lived every moment of their wedding with a wild party that lasted until the next morning.

The pianist, Michael Moore, was there playing covers of famous songs adding a different touch at the wedding party.

From Rosmarin Weddings and EventsKatya and Roy are a very interesting and extraordinary couple. Katya was born in a small Russian town, has worked for a long time as a flight attendant, and Roy, a Dutchman, though from his frequent travels for work, can probably be called “a man of peace”. Currently living together in Oslo, they met each other in Moscow, when Roy headed there for work.

When Katya received the proposal (which was very romantic and quite a surprise) the biggest question appeared – what venue for the main day. From the beginning they were considering Moscow, but it was not the story which they dreamed of. Outdoor city ceremonies didn’t seemed so original to people who have seen half of the world. There was great work in choosing location and finally the insanely beautiful, green Corfu was chosen. The complex of three private villas, which could accommodate all the guests and where we organized the gentle, romantic wedding ceremony and dinner.

As for palette, we chose pale lemon colors, gray and silver. This palette was perfectly fitted into the surroundings and gently contrasted with a rich greenery all around. Pastel printings in a watercolor style perfectly complemented the whole concept. It should be noted that the guests carefully responded to the bride’s request and chose outfits matching these colors.

The villa was a wonderful wedding location. First, comfortable for all guests, and no need to organize additional transfers.. Secondly, such a beautiful interior and the beautiful nature all around contributed to the wedding photos, which were captured by the talented Julia Kaptelova. Third, for a small family wedding (and in this case, only 30 guests), the villa was incredibly cozy and a great atmospheric decision.

It was a very touching day, Roy cried twice, Kate as the bride, of course, too. There was a lot of warm words from friends and family, fun and dancing. At the end of the evening, the village Barbati, where the villa is located, lit up from fireworks.
