The preparation of William took place at Grace Hotel Santorini, at Imerovigli. The groomsmen were his best friends and were really helpful and supportive with William, eliminating every trace of stress and nervousness.
Helen, on the other hand, had her preparation at Fira, at Aesthesis Villa, a brand new villa that had just opened, making Helen the very first bride to use it! Her besties as her bridesmaids were in chic, light turquoise dresses, the main color of the decoration of the wedding. Helen was, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful brides we have ever photographed.
The wedding took place at Santorini Gem with an amazing background of the Volcano, Caldera and Therasia. Besides the amazing decoration with the turquoise laces on the white chairs for the guests and the white curtains hanging from the gazebo the couple stood, the detail that the bride fell in love with was the crystal balls hanging on the sides of the gazebo with petals of real flowers in them! Each chair of the outside lines had a bottle with flowers in water hanging, so they stay fresh and alive under the May Santorini sun, creating a romantic alley for our gorgeous bride. The colors of the wedding were in complete harmony with the blue sky of Santorini and the white little houses.
The day started really windy, but fortunately everything turned out great. The guests created a buzz in the air with small talks, laughters and whispers that continued when the bridesmaids escorted by the groomsmen entered the alley and later on with the little girls in white throwing petals and "announcing" the entrance of the bride. When Helen arrived in front of the audience, after walking a path among exotic trees, everyone was speechless and absolute silence ruled all of a sudden.
Emotions were filling the air and the happy tears many. For their first dance at the reception, Helen changed to a breathtaking red gown. Our couple swayed under music and fireworks that colored the night.
