Determined to bring Scouse humour and flair to their Santorini wedding in Le Ciel, Lisa and Mark’s stunning day overlooked the west coastline, with views all the way to the North and South of the island (seriously, check out those photos.) Lisa looked absolutely breathtaking in a simple yet elegant dress from Provonias, whilst Mark rocked a tux and a pair of Christian Louboutin brogues (erm, style!) We also can't get enough of their black cake, allowing the colourful florals to stand out and match the dark stationery. The night ended with a first dance on the patio, surrounded by sparklers and mini fireworks. Their styling and colour choices ensured they stood out against the stark white contrast Santorini’s architecture is famous for!
What Made Our Day Unique
I think the setting was what made the day so unique. The view is so iconic and like no other. The sun was going down as the speeches were being made and it cast the most incredible light over the room. Santorini is such a special place for us and it was so unforgettable for our guests. It’s got the most relaxed and friendly vibe and we knew it was the only place we could get married!
If Santorini is calling your name for the big day, we wouldn’t blame you. Being safe in the knowledge you’re bound to get that incredible weather, and the most stunning sunset you’ve ever seen in your life, what more could you want during the backdrop of the moment you say I-do? We also love that Lisa and Mark chose standout colours for their styling, ensuring they stood out as much as possible for their picturesque photos!
Inspiration & Styling
We really just wanted the day to be about having fun. We didn’t get married until around 5pm so there was no part of the day that was slow-paced. There was something for our guests to do at every point of the day. I was really inspired by my bridesmaids. Having 6, I knew that I wanted to do something to reflect their colourful personalities and the fact that each of them are different. I scribbled down a few dress designs and then it grew from there!
We understand a destination wedding is desirable during the winter (and sometimes summer) months (especially within the U.K.), and if it’s something you’re looking into, we have all the info you need! Check out this intimate destination wedding, with an outdoor ceremony. And this beautiful Italian wedding, complete with Prosecco tower… erm, yes please.
