Yuni & Ben ♥ Santorini, Greece
Photographer: Vangelis Photography
The stories of how people meet are always so special and today’s tender tale is no exception. A truly modern romance of two people and a chance meeting in Japan, yet everything seems to work in their favour and them being together simply falls in to place.
On these occasions, with friends and family spread across the world and so many places that are special to them as a couple or that they could call home, it always seems to make sense to have a destination wedding in a neutral location.
That’s exactly what Yuni and Ben did and they set their destination wedding sights on the sun-drenched island of Santorini after hearing so much about the gorgeous Greek getaway. What better an excuse than their wedding to take this trip of a lifetime and to share the experience with their nearest and dearest?
Anyway, I’ll let the talented Vangelis Photography tell you more about this super-cute couple and their sleek and stylish Santorini wedding…
“Yuni is a Korean girl who was born in Osaka, Japan but spent a lot of her time in the US mostly in California. Ben was born and raised in Essex, United Kingdom all his life until he moved to Japan for a great job opportunity, where he met his beautiful bride and future wife in summer 2011 as Yuni went back to Japan to see her family.”
“They were initially friends who shared a mutual crush, but they knew they were the ones for each other immediately when they started hanging out in Tokyo where Yuni came back to work in January 2012.”
“After almost 2 years I had the honor to meet them and be the one that captured the strong feelings for each other on their special day on Santorini.”
“Santorini was a dream destination for Yuni and Ben, which they always wanted to visit. They had spoken with several people who had been on the island and they all said that it was the most beautiful and romantic place on earth with kind people showing genuine Greek hospitality. They certainly weren’t mistaken! So what better way to experience this unique island than having a destination wedding at Rocabella Santorini!”
“Surrounded by close friends and family, Yuni and Ben exchanged vows of eternal love in a very emotional ceremony at Rocabella where the reception also took place.”
“Yuni was stunning in her Vera Wang dress while Ben was a very handsome and stylish groom! During the day, we visited Oia for a brief on-location portrait session and the final result is truly amazing!”
