stylish wedding portrait in Greece

This elegant destination wedding comes to us from Phosart Photography & Cinematography, based in Oia, Greece! Here’s the lovely bride to tell us more:

The color theme of the wedding was Lilac, Purple & White. I chose these colors as I wanted it to be different from usual traditional wedding themes. I gleaned some decoration ideas from Pinterest. My style vision was elegant but simple. We wanted our wedding ceremony to be held outdoors with views of the sea, so chose Le Ciel in Imerovigli as our venue for the wedding and reception.

See more after the cut!

Our favourite crafted detail was making personalised wedding favours & destination table names. The reception tables were named after countries Barry and I have visited together. We gave all our guests personalised key rings. We framed various childhood pictures of us which were displayed around our guest book at our wedding reception.

The most memorable moment was walking down the aisle with my Father and seeing all my friends & family who had travelled thousands of miles to be apart of the special occasion.

The flowers were ordered by a local florist on the island recommended by our wedding planner. The floral arrangement and design decor for the wedding venue and reception was done by Afmena Events who is based in London but flew over to Santorini a few days before the wedding to see the venue and liaise with our wedding planner and local vendors.

My dress was designed by Diane Legrand and was purchased in a London store called ‘With Love Bridal’. I opted for an Ivory Lace Sleeveless dress which was perfectly suited for the warm climate. The dress was transported in a travel box with specifications suitable for flight hand luggage.

For any Bride planning a destination wedding I would strongly advise choosing wedding planners who are based in the country you are getting married in as it makes the whole process easier and less stressful.
