From KT MerryOur inspiration for this shoot was the couple that didn’t want to just honeymoon in an incredible location but elope there as well. The beautiful landscapes of Santorini, the white cascade of architecture and the clear skies make these Greek Isles a picturesque place for an elopement, destination wedding or honeymoon. We stayed and photographed at Canaves Hotel in Oia and it was truly a magical setting. Walking through the narrow passages and overlooking the sprawling sea the backdrop is truly romantic and inspiring.

From Ever After HoneymoonsSantorini is the most romantic island, an absolute dream location for a honeymoon! For the ultimate suite, stay in the Infinity Pool Suite at Canaves Oia Suites. The views from here are stunning! Then I would highly recommend a sunset boat trip one evening, where you get the most incredible sunset views! This is complimentary for clients of Ever After Honeymoons.

From The Venue ReportCanaves Oia is a gorgeous, glittering, light & bright gem, carved into the Santorini seaside that also happens to be destination “I-do,” bucket-list breathtaking. With panoramic views of the village of Oia, the volcano and the Aedean sea, let’s guess your Insta-feed will be en fuego. Paradisiacal gathering possibilities range from a dramatic cliffside ceremony to a candle-lit dinner under the stars at onsite gourmet, restaurant, Petra. As for amazing accommodations, how does a suite with a river cave plunge pool sound? For us, Canaves Oia checks every destination I-do bucket list box – beautiful location and bespoke service coupled with extraordinary experiences you can’t get anywhere else. Opa!

Colorful Santorini Honeymoon

I’ve said it once, I’ll say it a thousand more times – Santorini is the most beautiful place on the planet. So hire the likes of the talented Nicholas Purcell Studio to capture some beautiful moments while you are on island? Well, that’s a no brainer. And this pretty little gallery of images is proof. See even more in the VAULT.


From Nicholas Purcell StudioSantorini. It’s so well known for it’s sparkling white and blues that in photographing it, there is a danger of shooting nothing but cliche. But this beautiful island has so many shades of colour and varieties of light that are almost never seen. Sparkling whites are unavoidable sometimes, but I wanted to capture a feeling of this other island.

Romantic Mykonos Inspiration Shoot in Shades of Blue + White

Grab your passports, my dears, because this inspiration session from Les Anagnou Photographers is going to take you straight to Mykonos, Greece. Against the stark white buildings and rich blue water, every detail shines—from the Bride’s gorgeous Pronovias gown to the bright fuchsia bougainvillea accents. Soak up each and every pretty moment in The Vault!

From Les Anagnou PhotographersThe flavour of this shoot was one of bright contrasts softened by careful and loving attention to detail, reflecting Alexia and Ralph’s intimate location of their love shoot on the stunning Greek island of Mykonos, the island of the winds. This couple wanted to celebrate their love shortly after their wedding on mainland Greece.

So here on Mykonos, the couple came together and stood where the white washed clusters of buildings are set against the deep blue Aegean sea. As the sky created a clean bright backdrop, the famous windmills softened the scene turning with the strong winds that swept around the shore, blowing the bride’s veil into the air with a casual air of drama, in this the most luxurious and beautiful of all Greek wedding destinations.

Reflecting the blue and white landscape, the Event Company brought the details to life using gorgeous blue and white details in this love shoot, capturing the essence of Mykonos. The wedding invitations by Atelier Invitations reflect the colours and ruggedness of the coastline in a simple water colour illustration and calligraphy and the choice of tasteful dark blue envelopes capture the traditional flavour perfectly. The beautiful blue and white wedding cake by Cake by Maria’s Cakes & Cookies sets the table perfectly for this intimate dining experience.

The bride’s wedding dress by Pronovias matches the bright white simplicity of the surrounds, contrasts perfectly with the sharp dark lines of the groom. The flowers by Studio 7 ooze careful loving detail, with the bride’s white rose bouquet delicately softened by green and white berries and the floral decorations on the tables daringly brought a splash of colour and detail to the blue and white vintage tableware with its sprigs of pink bougainvilleas wrapped in luscious branches of grey green olive leaves.

Photography is by Greek fine art photographers Les Anagnou, passionate about capturing the love and location of a wedding on film. It’s hidden in the detail.
