Engagement Session in Santorini

I’m kind of obsessed with this engagement session. And when I say obsessed, I mean totally head over heels in love. This couple was not only lucky enough to have their engagement session in stunning Santorini, but they also had the amazingly talented team at Bubblerock behind the lens to capture all the magic – leaving us with a gallery that almost seems to good to be true. 


From BubblerockRenee and Micheal were engaged on an island: Waiheke Island off the coast of Auckland in New Zealand and it’s on an island they also chose to have their engagement session.

Off on a tour of Europe before settling down in London for a few years, they happened to be in Santorini at the same time as we were so we booked in for an engagement session there. It made total sense.

From sunrise in Oia to sunset by a lost church at the end of a gravel road, we spent the day roaming the island in search of beautiful spots, screaming Santorini just as much as being far away from the obvious tourist locations. Their love for each other and the easy-going nature made for such a cool adventure in one of the cyclades’ most famous islands.

And no need for any styling when the location offers so much beauty already. Santorini is such a great place to come and visit but also a destination for weddings. We all fell in love with it.

Romantic Santorini Wedding Inspiration

After going through this photo shoot by Heidi Lau and Artiese Studios (over and over again), I’m just about ready to pack my bags and run off to Santorini. Blue Lavender Events captured the classic beauty of this romantic island to a tee, and I’m left craving both of these jaw dropping gorgeous bridal looks. While I may not be able to jet off anytime soon, there’s plenty more pretty where this comes from.

From Therese, Heidi, and IrisThis shoot was inspired by the romance of an intimate island, bold but classic colours, iconic landscape, and of course beautiful light. No other place in the world encompasses these qualities better than the picturesque island of Santorini.

The organic & architectural elements of this captivating island set the tone for our colour scheme and tablescape. From the white buildings and signature blue-domed churches to the bright pink blooming bougainvillea, this shoot was rich in vibrant hues reflective of Santorini.

Our main floral inspiration was the bougainvillea found all over the island – pops of pink against the classic white buildings. We loved how romantic and organic the flowers were and incorporated this idea over the sweetheart table and overflowing centerpiece to emphasize the romance and intimacy for our couple. Hints of bougainvillea were also on the invites peeking through the laser cut blue gate, mimicking the ornate doorways in Santorini.

The desserts were inspired by the small details that make up the beautiful island. The cookies mirror the intricate details of Greek tiles, the cake was inspired by the cascading hills of Santorini along with the wrapping of the bougainvillea that decorates the entry ways of the island.

We gave our brides two different looks, both inspired by different aspects of this beautiful Greek island.

The first bride was inspired by the colours of Santorini and wore an intricate updo accented by a jeweled head piece with matching earrings and hand piece. Her dress was simple and understated so that the bold hues from her jewels and vivacious fuchsia bouquet would stand out against her white gown.

The inspiration for our second bride was the organic, natural elements of the island. She was styled in a relaxed, flowy gown and her hair was down in loose waves topped off with a floral crown inspired by olive leaves. Her earrings were the perfect hint of blue tying into the bright blue accents of Santorini.

We wanted the groom to complement his bride, but also be a standout on his own. We felt that the blue suit was a fresh twist from the classic black suit and had more of a Greek island feel. What made his outfit extra unique was a custom reversible tie and pocket square. This way, he’s able to change his look from the ceremony to the reception just by reversing his accessories.

With the overall atmosphere and so many gorgeous details, we felt like this shoot transported us to the romantic island of Santorini. We hope that these images do the same for you!

From Love4WedThere are many days that I seriously have to pinch myself to make sure I am not living a dream! One of the many highlights that come with the territory of being the editor of a wedding blog, is that I get to work side by side with amazingly talented wedding professionals and together create wedding prettiness just like the following boho chic winter wedding inspiration!

Every single detail from this gorgeous shoot was nothing short of perfection and was captured brilliantly by photographer Anna Roussos. The shoot took place in the Nasioutzik Museum, a unique wedding venue just outside of Athens, Greece and wedding planner Anna Sourbati flawlessly curated all the decorative details, capturing the location’s natural rustic beauty in the most beautiful way. In the floral decorations, she incorporated a variety of gorgeous flowers such as blush pink roses, white hyacinths and red alstroemeria. Beautiful burgundy fall leaves were blended with grey and red eucalyptus leaves adding a special touch to the lush floral arrangements. The wooden tables were adorned with dusty rose and grey linens, vintage clear old fashioned glassware, white candles and fresh season fruit that undoubtedly added more color and texture to the table top. The burgundy subtle touches that were used on the lovely wedding stationery gave a more wintery feeling, yet kept the boho chic style. My favorite details… the scrumptious desserts and especially the naked caked that was decorated with blush garden roses!

The boho chic winter wedding inspiration was completed with a romantic and ancient Greece inspired two piece wedding dress designer by Katia Delatola. The dreamy wedding dress was made with French Chantilly lace and flesh colored silk muslin. The burgundy velvet belt complemented the look of the wedding dress and added a slight contrast.

The idea behind this beautiful winter wedding shoot and the collective goal was to create such and an amazingly pretty winter wedding inspiration that it would make brides think twice about planning their wedding during the spring and summer period. The shoot was such an incredible experience and I was so fortunate to have worked with such talented people and create… this little piece of winter wedding heaven!
