Finally I get to share our first destination wedding in Santorini! Its been nearly 2 months since we got back but work has been crazy. We’ve got much so share with weddings and engagements but this one will always be special. I still can’t believe how lucky we are to shoot a wedding in Santorini!
If you’re wondering how it all happened, I knew Valerie from Jess + Bjorn’s wedding in Mauritius last year. She was the makeup artist for their wedding and we got in touch when it was Valerie’s turn :) Valerie’s always wanted to get married in Santorini and so everything came together in 2 weeks. Yup, you read right. 2 weeks was all she needed to get everything happening and before we knew it we were on a plane to Santorini.
When we landed I could not believe my eyes. The scenery was absolutely breathtaking. Words cannot describe the beauty of the place. It was only then I knew why Santorini was one of the top destinations in the world to get married. We met with Lila the wedding coordinator and she was a joy to work with. But more than that, Valerie & Eric, together with their families were so welcoming and even invited us for dinner the evening before the big day. I could not have asked for better people to be with.
We love creating memories for our couples, but this wedding was one that created beautiful memories for ourselves as well, not just because we were in Santorini, but because we got to spend time with two amazing families over 2 days, celebrating Valerie + Eric’s union.
And yes, Valerie’s dress was AH-MAY-ZING :)
