Danielle wore a stunning two-piece gown from Rime Arodaky that we thought perfect!
From the bride herself:
We met at our favorite local bar in Swansea, the UK. The timing wasn’t the best for us at that moment but a while later Nick got in touch while he was living in Australia! He flew home sooner than planned to take me on our first date and get to know each other properly!
We left the color to the natural beauty of the island so opted for neutral tones! The bridesmaids wore a metallic ‘rosewater’ dress which glistened beautifully in the sunshine. (Read more below...)
Destination brides – take your dress and wedding day essentials as hand luggage to make sure it doesn’t stray! Most airlines insist your gown goes in the overhead luggage area so I would recommend bagging instead of boxing your gown and laying it flat over passengers’ luggage. My wedding gown was designed by Rime Arodaky, a Parisian designer and my bridesmaid’s wore dresses by Two Birds. If you choose to have your hair and makeup done professionally, book a trial to allow time and opportunity to make any changes!
Yes, no matter how prepared I thought I was, disaster did strike! I travelled to our venue by car in the Santorini heat – the journey took 20 minutes and when we arrived at the venue, I stepped out of the car, looked down at my gown and saw that it was completely creased right across the front from where I had been sitting. The venue staff that was there to greet me quickly ushered me into the bridal room where they got out the iron to fix the creases whilst I still had the dress on! I had one lady with her hand under my dress with a cloth and another lady sweeping my gown with the iron. My heart was in my mouth. I couldn’t look down but pleaded with them not to burn my dress. My bridesmaids did an amazing job of trying to reassure me during the chaos but I could see the horror on their faces! The staff was amazing and after 10 intense minutes they had me fixed up and good to go!
We couldn’t recommend Studio Phosart more! Joanna was the dream photographer! Travelling from the UK to get married, we initially wanted to bring a local photographer with us but we are so glad we decided against that! We loved the style of Phosart’s photography - we without a doubt made the right decision choosing them to capture our special day! Joanna was a star! She was friendly, efficient and made us feel totally relaxed from start to finish while captured all the magical moments of the day!
