ISLAND ROMANCE

I’m so delighted to share this beautiful wedding in Santorini today, not just because I’ve been harbouring a secret lust for this island for many years, but also because an intimate island wedding sounds like a pretty romantic celebration to me!

This couple’s destination wedding combined traditional Chinese and Western elements, including a sunset ceremony overlooking the sea and a beautifully romantic reception filled with roses and freesias (imagine the scent!) with olive foliage as a nod to the local flora.

Their photographer Roberta Facchini explains more:

Luna and Kevin live between the US and Canada but wanted their wedding to include Chinese and Western elements. They hadn’t been to Greece before despite having always wanted to visit this wonderful part of the world so their first visit to Santorini was definitely one of the most memorable and life-changing trips you could imagine!

The couple worked with Santorini wedding planners, Stella & Moscha and talented florist Fabio Zardi was commissioned to provide delightful floral arrangements and installations for the ceremony and reception at the Sun Rocks Hotel.

Luna began her day with bridal preparations and Renia Bledaki and Georgia Theodoraki were on hand to take care of Luna’s classic bridal hair and make-up. She looked absolutely stunning and her Kleinfeld Bridal ceremony dress and exquisite sparkling Rene Caovilla wedding shoes completed her look perfectly.

Fabio Zardi had transformed the venue, working with a white, light pink, gold and silver colour palette. There were roses, freesias and delphiniums to name but a few plus hypericum berries and olive leaves to highlight the colour palette.

The wedding ceremony itself took place at sunset, facing the caldera, which is the most breathtaking backdrop you can imagine and once the couple had said their vows, we walked through the village of Firostefani for some unforgettable couple’s portraits.  Kevin and Luna danced into the night, under the stars and surrounded by the people that mean the most to them in the whole world. It was such a privilege to be their photographer!
