So happy to share with you today a black and ivory wedding in Santorini so elegant and captivating we are in awe! Gemma and Mark’s love story is so adorable, the lovely stylish details from Santorini Glam Weddings are beyond gorgeous and we are positively smitten with every gorgeous image captured fabulously by Anna Roussos!
“I chose the Enzoani Dakota dress and had a long chapel length veil edged in the same lace. My dress was extremely beautiful and what I always wanted. As soon as tried it on (it’s true what they say) I just knew I had to have it. I danced and swooshed around in it all night!”
The lovely ceremony took place at the breathtaking location of the Dana Villas in Santorini. “We had been on holiday to Santorini a few times and just fell in love with the island and knew immediately that had to be the destination for the wedding… we also knew our families would love it!”
“We met on a night out socialising with friends… it took a while for Mark to pluck up the courage to come over and speak… Something we laugh about now!”
“We have so many “best” moments… everything was so perfect! Probably saying our vows with our family and friends around us on the beautiful terrace at Dana Villas”
The bride’s advice: “Start early! I did and luckily found it very exciting with hardly any stress”
“We wanted our wedding to be simple but with a vintage lace theme. The wedding colors were ivory with a touch of black”.
“The best decision we made concerning our black and ivory wedding was to have it in Santorini, looking back now I couldn’t imagine it anywhere else… The worst decision (gosh this is hard as we don’t have any regrets at all!) is probably to have had the wedding earlier in our 2 week stay rather than towards the end so we could have stayed longer afterwards…”
Gemma and Mark’s wedding proposal story is so cute! In Gemma’s own words: “Mark and I had just returned from a holiday in Santorini and we bought a little puppy called Kobi. Mark had a tag made for his collar saying ‘Gemma Will You Marry Me’ so it was a huge surprise”
We are beyond obsessed with the Christos Costarellos bridal shoot at Hotel Grande Bretagne and no doubt you will be too! The inspiration for this gorgeous shoot was influenced by the uber-luxurious surroundings of the landmark hotel that offers an unrivalled perspective of Athens’ mythical history. Photographer George Pahountis captured brilliantly every detail with perfection. You will be completely forgiven if you decide to spend the day swooning over the lust worthy Christos Costarellos gowns.
A dream come true for the stylish bride…
Stunning silk tulle wedding dress with a plunging v-neck style that add a subtle sensuality.
One of the Christos Costatellos gowns I truly love: maxi mermaid wedding dress with ruffles and guipure lace with delicate satin details.
The ultimate definition of gorgeousness: silk muslin and chiffon wedding dress with dramatic sleeves.
Showstopping wedding dress for the bride that is willing to dare. Lace applique mermaid gown with layers and sheer elegantly combined.
