A modern and classic wedding shoot in Santorini
04 May 2022
Dreaming of a destination wedding on the Greek island of Santorini? Check out this heavenly wedding set-up
Konstantinos C. Deliporanidis, of DW EVENTS in Santorini, shares the details of this white and green-themed wedding shoot.
What was the inspiration behind the shoot?
For this theme, we pulled together many stylistic elements, and we paid extreme attention to the smallest details in order to accomplish one of our most cherished wedding creations.
There is no doubt that one of the elements that first draws your attention is the impressive ceremony arch decorated with lush greenery and white seasonal roses, making the perfect romantic backdrop to exchange your wedding vows. However, the luxurious and romantic essence of this wonderful arrangement really takes off with the two breathtaking floral arches and the elegant crystal chandeliers hanging above the sweetheart table, creating the most pristine and romantic framing for a stunning photographic outcome.
Last but not least, the wooden table along with the classic chairs perfectly highlight this romantic setting. Merging luxurious and elegant vibes in perfect harmony, our aim was to create a timeless and everlasting design proposal for our wedding couples.
Tell us a little bit about the venue and why it was chosen
The location on which this stylish wedding photo shoot took place is the luxurious and enchanting El Viento Villa. El Viento Villa is an architectural gem located in one of the most picturesque settlements of Santorini, Megalochori, and offers spectacular views of the impressive caldera and the Aegean Sea.
El Viento is the oldest windmill in Santorini, offering a unique combination of rustic and luxurious influences. This amazingly beautiful stone-built windmill is the perfect venue for intimate and romantic events, such as elopements, as it offers serenity and privacy. The reason why it was the ideal venue to host our photo shoot was that it has these timeless, old-fashioned romance vibes that we wanted to harness.
What did you choose for the flower arrangements?
We chose white roses and white seasonal florals, lush greenery and white freestyle wisteria to decorate the structure of the chandeliers.
What kind of look did you want to achieve with the make-up, hair and outfits for the bride and groom?
For our gorgeous bride, we created a natural look with soft make-up, carefree hair and discrete jewellery, putting emphasis on her mermaid-style backless wedding dress covered with lace. As for her shoes, what could be more elegant and classic than satin jewelled white stilettos?
The groom is the epitome of elegance and simplicity in his amazing black tux and bowtie, with no-socks plus loafers, keeping his style comfortable and summery yet really classy.
What was the thinking behind the décor for the shoot? How did you tie it all together?
Our thoughts behind the inspiration was to create a theme that matches perfectly with the vibes of Santorini and its beauty. Our colour scheme included white, lush green and gold highlights. Our aim was to combine vibrant nature vibes with purity, luxury and elegance.
