Our Santorini Wedding

Today was one of the most important days of my life - our wedding! I first saw Santorini in a drama and fell in love with it right away! If I can choose one place to have my dream wedding, it is definitely Santorini.  I have dreamed about having my wedding in Santorini and today it came true!

The night before was raining so I was very nervous that the weather will ruined my dream wedding! Luckily, when I woke up in the morning, the rain stopped but it was cloudy. We woke up early in the morning and had our breakfast. My make-up artist arrived at 10:30 am and did my hair and make-up. We got dressed and our wedding planner came to meet us at 12:30 pm. Nikos took some photos of us around our hotel before we headed to Saint Irni.



I chose Saint Irni because I love the its structure and location, it was facing the sea. We got to Saint Irni and our ceremony started. There was one camera man and two photographers (one is Nikos) recorded our whole ceremony. Saint Irni was very romantic, surrounded it was all white just like in dream land! I couldn't believe that were are getting married in Santorini, everything I have dreamed all came true! Even though it was just two of us, I felt this was the best moment in my life that I will never forget.




After our ceremony, we had our photo shoot in Saint Irni and then headed to the famous Oia for the picturesque blue-domed church. Nikos knew the best locations for photos, locations that I never seen online.  When we reached Oia, we couldn't believe our eyes - it was like heaven! Everywhere was whitewashed houses and blue-domed churches. The white and blue made us felt like we are dreaming.







We spent at least 2 hours in Oia, every single corner was just too beautiful!

After the photo shoot, Nikos drove us back to our hotel and our hotel gave us a bottle of champagne and congratulated us :) Today was the most memorable day in my life and my dream came true!

    1. Hi Michelle, I booked the wedding ceremony, hair + makeup, and photography together as a package from Nikos Sirigos: http://www.santoriniweddings.net/

      The lady who did my hair and makeup was okay, at first I thought it was over-done (too white) so I brushed it off a bit and the photos came out pretty good. If you ask me to recommend her or not, I am not sure, since she's the only one I tried. I think it's going to hard to find a local make-up artist there who is familiar with Asian makeup since it's very different than Europeans/Americans.
