After meeting online in 2014 our relationship blossomed very quickly and we moved in together less than a year later. After a while we talked about marriage and whether we wanted to do it again, as we had both been married once before. We decided it would be good to have another wedding and mark our lives together with something beautiful. So after some searching online, we came up with the idea of doing it abroad with a dramatic sea backdrop. Santorini was top of our destination list so we contacted santoriniweddings.services and booked the wedding.
We were able to discuss with wedding planner every detail of the wedding that we wanted and nothing was too much for her to handle.
When the wedding day finally came around in August 2019 we found it to be every bit as good as we imagined. Our three daughters made some beautiful bridesmaids for us.
The Island is beautiful and our venue at Santo wines looked stunning. We had 40 or so friends and family join us for the ceremony and most of them decided to make a holiday of it and stay on the Island for the whole week. Our day started about 10am with makeup and hair for the bride and bridesmaids
All the dresses for the bridal party were hand made by the bride Gosia and as you can see from the photos they looked amazing.
Then we (bride and groom) we driven to the beautiful town of Imerovigli for a photoshoot. Although we both found this a very difficult hour to get through because we were both fully dressed up for the wedding and the 3pm sun was burning down on us, the results from our photoshoot made everything well worth it.
After the shoot we were driven to Santo Wines for the ceremony and after 15 mins of cooling down in the shade we were both ready to go.
The ceremony went very smoothly with our happy registrar and it was quick which is what we both wanted. Our wedding reception was booked just a short walk away at Pyrgos restaurant in Pyrgos.
As our guests were walking there we we treated ourselves to a helicopter tour of the island which was amazing.
We were able to land just outside Pyrgos restaurant and we could see all our guests filming us as we landed.
Gosia changed into a second dress that she had also made for herself. The buffet food at Prygos was delicious and everybody had an amazing time.
Overall we were very pleased with everything about this wedding, the island, the location, the weather, the photos and video, and the seamless way it was all organised by Irina. None of us present at this wedding will ever forget it!
