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…

Utterly breathtaking, unobstructed ocean views, glorious summer sunshine and not forgetting the world-famous Greek hospitality and the delectable traditional food…Santorini has it all when it comes to destination weddings.

Gemma and Mark knew from the moment that they got engaged that getting married in Santorini was for them, having holidayed on the Southern Cyclades island together twice already and helplessly falling in love with the magic and beauty of the volcanic isle.

Real Wedding – The Natural Beauty Of Spetses

Claire & Robin   ♥    Spetses, Greece

Photographer:   Anna Roussos

 

The Greek island of Spetses has nudged its way on to my must-visit list. Always keen to visit somewhere a little less discovered, this peaceful spot is off the beaten Greek island-hopping track and has certainly kept its character and charm, with a horse and carriage still being the locals preferred transportation.

 

Claire and Robin wisely chose to emphasize the natural beauty of their chosen destination wedding location rather than detract from it, by using sympathetic styling and neutral detailing. Claire looked angelic in a timeless Jenny Packham gown, offset with vintage jewellery and a delicate white bridal bouquet, whilst her groom Robin complimented her and their theme perfectly in a stylish neutral suit.

 

The darling duo tied the knot outdoors, surrounded by nature and their loved ones, at an ancient amphitheater; olive trees and an abundance of off-white decorated the altar. The elegant Poseidonion Grand Hotel then hosted their stylish garden reception and the attractive attention to detail continued in the form of peacock print table name cards, olive branch decorations and soft candlelight.

 

All of the romance and the pure wedding pretty of Claire and Robin’s day, was captured by the amazing Anna Roussos.

Real Wedding – Cliffside Santorini Wedding Ceremony

You Mean The World To Me

Anastasia & Ivan   ♥    Santorini, Greece

Photographer:   Anna Roussos

 

Anastasia and Ivan tied the knot on top of the famous Caledra cliffs with the deep blue Aegean Sea as the sparkling backdrop to their Santorini wedding ceremony.

 

Whitewashed villas, blue-domed churches and a maze of cobbled streets cling to the cliff face of Thira and with year-round sunshine this destination wedding location is fit for a Greek goddess. And Anastasia looks every bit the part positively glowing in her stunning gown. This is one dreamy destination day, radiating with more romance than even Aphrodite could handle and captured to perfection as always by the talented Anna Roussos.

“Anastasia and Ivan got married on a nice summer morning in the middle of June. They travelled all the way from Moscow to their dream wedding island Santorini. They were surrounded by their parents and closest friends when they exchanged their vows overlooking the famous Caldera view.”
