From The Bridal Consultant.. It was after Alex and Oliver spent their first holiday as a couple on Santorini that they knew they wanted to be married on this beautiful Greek Island.

This was the perfect choice as they also wanted their wedding to be a bit more traditional than the usual overseas wedding. If I had to summarize their wedding abroad in a couple of words, they would be elegant and stylish with a hint of vintage.

Alex and Oliver chose to have their wedding ceremony at Le Ciel. Le Ciel is a stunning wedding venue that was purposely built on the edge of the caldera in 2015. They followed this with their wedding reception at La Maltese Hotel, which shares the same magnificent sunset views over the Caldera.

The Bride’s wedding dress comprised of two elements. Alex fell in love with a Caroline Castigliano shrug. She returned to the same boutique (Les Trois Soeurs) where she tried on different silhouettes until she found the perfect Sarah Janks wedding dress.

Alex chose a beautiful pair of Jimmy Choo shoes and clutch bag; and as she wanted to keep her accessories simple, Alex opted for a stunning floor length ivory veil, diamond earrings and a matching diamond tennis bracelet. In the evening Alex removed the shrug and added a beautiful vintage style diamante belt.

The bridesmaids’ dresses were by Jenny Yoo and were flown in specially from New York. They were called Juliette in Cameo Pink with gold flecked lace.

The groom, his best men and the fathers of the bride and groom looked equally elegant in their attire. They opted for a classic navy blue three-piece with a modern twist. The suits by Sartorial Style of Saville Row were personalized with a scope waistcoat, wider than normal lapels and pink stitched highlights (such as a single cuff buttonhole) to match the bridesmaid’s dresses.

Details are always an important part of the wedding day and Alex and Oliver spent months building a mood board. We liaised with designers including Wedding Wish (wedding florist and decorations) in Santorini to create the beautiful image of their wedding day they envisioned.

Their wedding cake was a four-tied ivory cake with a hand piped lace design to match the bride’s dress. The bespoke wedding stationery, including menus, were designed and made to order by a stationer in the UK and were in keeping with their colors and theme.

For the favors, Alex chose personalized candles for the ladies and Oliver chose a cigar and whiskey bar for the men.

From the Bride… We first holidayed in Santorini as a couple and we simply fell in love with the island. The weather was beautiful, the scenery was spectacular and the sunset was one of the best we had seen. We’d always imagined that we would get married in an English manor house with beautiful gardens, but the thought of getting married with the Santorini sunset in the background changed our minds. The whole planning experience up until the big day was one emotional rollercoaster, but was worth every moment! Our best memory from the day was the moment we saw each other at the aisle and our first dance. This was made even more special as we had sparklers for all of the guests and fireworks at the end of the dance.

From Jen Huang…  Shanshan and Philip really tried to incorporate the natural beauty of Santorini into their wedding. With the colors inspired by the cerulean ocean and the decor inspired by the olive orchards of Greece. Shanshan and Philip also brought in the color red, which is the traditional Chinese color of celebration. Shanshan wore a red dress for her tea ceremony and dressed her bridesmaids in beautiful berry colored robes. The ceremony was short and sweet during the sunset, and the married couple rode off to their reception in a vintage VW convertible from the island. Guests ate traditional Greek cuisine. Dishes were plated on wooden charges and the tables were decorated with more local flowers and plants, again including Greece’s beautiful olive branches.

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.
