Santorini Destination Wedding

Wedding

Greece was on my bucket list. We even talked of taking our honeymoon in Greece. We couldn’t afford it. So, when my good friend, a sommelier and traveller, decided to get married in Santorini, we couldn’t believe our luck. I was asked to do the bride’s hair and make-up and to do make-up for the wedding party. Of course, I said yes.

What an incredibly magical spot to wed!

Delicious food and fresh local ingredients.

Honey, sesame and cheese…

By the time the ‘main’ course of whole grilled fish came to our table, we were so satisfied and full!

Braids and twists were the inspiration for this Grecian look. Heat-proof hair was on the ‘must have’ list.

At the venue, the sea took center stage as the gorgeous backdrop for their vows.

Our friendship goes back to 7th grade. She looked absolutely stunning, head to toe.
