A bold pink wedding shoot in Santorini

12 May 2022

For a fairy tale wedding set-up on the island of Santorini, look no further than this romantic photo-shoot

DW EVENTS drew inspiration from Villa Bordeaux in Santorini for this elegant and romantic shoot. Also influenced by the colours of the majestic Santorini sunset, a kaleidoscopic colour scheme of pink and magenta created a statement set-up against the earth-toned walls of the venue.  

Colour palette

Pink harmonises the passion of red with the purity and innocence of white, blending the two for a soft and ever popular wedding colour. A sense of atmospheric romance was instantly conveyed by the bold pink colour that was central to the palette of the shoot. Napkins in natural tones and silver cutlery served to elevate the colour scheme and add contrasting accents. 





Villa Bordeaux is one of DW Events' favourite venues to host a wedding in Santorini, as it combines luxury with traditional influences. Villa Bordeaux is a renovated Neoclassical mansion, located at the heart of the Santorini island, Fira, and it looks as if it's hanging from the impressive cliffs of the Caldera.

Villa Bordeaux is nestled in the small historical part of the city, which was built by the Venetians, and that is why it differs from the traditional Cycladic whitewashed houses with its thick ochre walls and painted metal doors.

Villa Bordeaux has four luxurious suites and an amazing infinity pool, making it the perfect place for an elegant wedding. In addition, Villa Bordeaux offers the most amazing backdrop for beautiful wedding photography and cinematography as it provides its visitors with awe-inspiring views of the Aegean Sea. 




The decoration

We co-ordinated many different stylistic elements in order to achieve our vision. Not only did we create this stunning ceremony arch with bold pink flowers, highlighted perfectly by the azure turquoise sea, but we also used delicate pink roses combined with lush greenery for the wedding table decoration to tie the look together. 

At DW Events, we believe that Art de la Table is a focal point of any wedding reception set-up. From the white textured tablecloth with beautiful vintage patterns, to the perfectly aligned cutlery, goblets and candlesticks, we made sure that everything was placed meticulously in order to create an aesthetically pleasing result. 




The bride

Our goal was to create a simple yet chic and classy look for the bride and that is exactly what we accomplished. The A-line wedding dress is elegant in every way with intricate detailing, and the wedding shoes sparkle from every angle. For the make-up, we used soft, neutral tones that complemented the bride's olive skin and the high bun fully exposed her Mediterranean beauty. Beautiful tear-drop earrings served to finish the look.
