From start to finish our wedding day in Santorini at Le Ciel was perfect! As I woke up on the 5th July, the sun was shining and I remember saying to my sister ‘There isn’t a cloud in the sky’
As I did all the final touches, touching up my make up and fastening my jewellery, I stepped down the steps from our room at El Greco and all of the poolside clapped and cheered as I climbed in the 1957 classic Porsche , it was such a overwhelming moment.
I do films filmed us via drone and captured the whole things perfectly, when I look back it makes me cry everytime and our friends and family always comment how beautiful it is.
When we arrived at the Le Ciel George Ventouris our photographer was waiting for us, and started snapping away immediately, we have some beautiful photos, we will treasure forever. He took us to some of his favourite scenic spots, one just a short drive up the hill from Le Ciel and captured us outside a church.memories we will cherish forever.
Le Ciel, and our wedding planners Lila and Eleni got everything on point and to perfection. I used a company in England called perfect weddings abroad, and all the emails were quick, and stress free. Lila put my mind to rest the minute I met her, as she reassured me that there was no need to stress as she had everything under control. And they did!!!
The timings, the music , the arrangements , the flowers!
We had drinks for the wedding party whilst we waited for the start of the wedding , and the guests had drinks offered also. We also purchased a drinks package through the day and night which was fantastic service, as the waiters never let anyone’s drink run out.
The food was to die for! The best wedding food they had has some of our family and friends commented. And not to mention the cake Lila had arranged was out of this world. Bigger and more fairytale than I imagined and as I walked into the venue my sister said ‘have you seen your cake?’ and gasped ‘wow, is that our cake’
We had sparklers to see in our first dance , and fountains too, the timing of the music was always on time never was there any awkward silences or delays .
After dancing, we arranged two Greek dancers to come for entertainment. They helped get everyone involved and put everyone in good spirits, these were one of my favourite things.
We have returned back to Santorini since 2018, in 2019 and it bought back all these happy memories and made us realise why we chose Santorini. There’s something very special and unique about it there and I think I will fall in love with it every time we return.
