Santorini, the place that I am so lucky to live and work at, is undoubtedly among the top wedding destinations for couples who want their big day to be ethereal and stunning. This romantic getaway with its exquisitely clear waters, pristine blue skies, and unique architecture is certainly a wedding photographer’s delight. Having photographed a significant number of weddings all over the world in the last 23 years that I am a professional photographer, I couldn’t but select this precious gem of the Aegean Sea for a specially curated styled elopement shoot, for all the couples looking for wedding inspiration in Santorini as the perfect romantic place to tie the knot.
The wedding preparations took place at the luxurious Villa Kamini. The bride wore a seductive, skin-hugging Berta wedding dress from Primalicia Bridal Boutique in Athens. Flawless bridal makeup by artists Eleni lliopoulou and Renia Bledaki and beautiful hair styling by Marianna Nomikou completed the bride’s look. The groom was giving stiff competition to the bride in a dashing tuxedo by Takis Giannetos.
Set on a high cliff and overlooking the magnificent Caldera and port of Athinios, Venetsanos Winery combines a breathtaking location with exceptional architecture. As a wedding venue, it is a perfect choice. The design and styling of the venue’s decor and the lush florals were provided by the ever-creative Wedding Wish Santorini team. The concept was the creation of a bold, dark and glamorous celebration that would be intimate and lavish at the same time, inspired by the black-colored rocks of the volcanic eruption that shaped this unique island. The wedding cake by Alexandra’s Cakes along with the exquisitely designed dessert table added a sweet note to this splendid affair.
