Photographing a Santorini wedding had been on our bucket list for some time so let’s just say that that we were pretty damn excited to be spending a few days with Eider & Marta for their wedding vow renewal on the island.
This was our first time on Santorini and wow it did not disappoint! We expected a Santorini wedding to be spectacular, but we were completely blown away by our time with Eider & Marta and quite how breathtaking the island actually is. It definitely lives up to its reputation as one of the best wedding destinations in the world. In fact before setting off we stumbled across this description in the Lonely Planet Guide:
‘Santorini is the supermodel of the Greek islands, a head-turner whose face is instantly recognisable around the world: multicoloured cliffs soar out of a sea-drowned caldera, topped by drifts of whitewashed buildings. With its reputation for dazzling panoramas, romantic sunsets and volcanic-sand beaches, it’s hardly surprising the island features on so many travellers’ bucket lists.’
We couldn’t agree more and it’s hard to imagine a more stunning location to escape to for an intimate wedding celebration.
Eider & Marta travelled to Santorini to celebrate their 10 year anniversary together and renewed their wedding vows to each other at a small vineyard on the island. They did it style…arriving together in a vintage VW Beetle with local musicians leading them through to their intimate ceremony. Afterwards we headed off with Eida & Marta for a walk along the cliff edge to take in the scenery. We also did short a second shoot with these guys in their original dresses and although we weren’t quite lucky enough to experience the legendary Santorini sunset, we still had some pretty epic last light to end the shoot with! Eider & Marta’s Santorini wedding vow renewal was unforgettable and our time on the island with these guys was magical.
Fingers crossed we’ll be back soon!
