No distance is too great when you have dreamed of your wedding day in view of the Santorini caldera. Such a breathtaking location is worth visiting at least once in a lifetime. Mimi and Ben , a lovely couple full of Joy and positive energy traveled to our beautiful little corner of the world with a few friends and family members to have the time of their lives and combine their unique intimate Santorini wedding with a Sunny & Aegean Blue Santorini vacation.
The couple’s idea of the their wedding was beauty in simplicity as for them what was important was that they were here in Santorini with each other and among their loved ones. Mimi decided on a bright pink table runner topped by a minimal centerpiece with bright white Peonies flowers. the result was a stunning central setting beneath the curtain gazebo in strong contrast with the white terrace and in perfect harmony with the surrounding views.
Mimi wore a beautiful wedding gown simple and elegant on that beautiful and very hot day with a white parasol in her hand she began the walk down the Firostefani steps between the white washed traditional houses holding Ben’s hand. Guests in the area vacationing congratulated the lovely couple and Traditional Musician Spiro and his two sons played traditional island wedding songs and sung their songs honoring the couple with their lyrics of love and marriage as is the traditional in the Greek islands.
Professional Photographer Spiros Zaharakis with his gift of capturing unique and natural moments of love and happiness was the couples chosen photographer. Always a step ahead and in the perfect position with his camera he captured all the amazing moments of the Mimi and Ben’s beautiful wedding day. Spiros Zaharakis was kind enough to give us a selection of photos from the many fantastic moments of this day to share with you.
Mimi and Ben approached the wedding venue were everyone was anticipating their arrival, one the traditional musicians could be heard by the guests they knew the couple was arriving and all stood up for their arrival. The lovely couple entered the wedding venue and stood side by side between the curtains and the celebrant began the ceremony. The couple was overwhelmed by this special moment and exploded with joy and happiness the moment they where pronounced husband and wife. Their family and friends joined them to congratulate them and enjoyed a glass of champagne while extending their wishes to them for their future together.
Ben and Mimi with their guests and Spiro Zaharakis soon departed our wedding venue and combined their photo session with a beautiful walk along the Cliffside path that connects Firostefani and Fira which offers breathtaking views and one of the most magical views of the central Fira Cliffside while approaching. This was a perfect choice as their dinner reception was arranged at the well known Sphinx restaurant located in a breathtaking Cliffside location on the central Fira Cliffside.
