Varkiza Greece Wedding + Island + Semi and David

I could use so many different words to describe Semi & David’s destination wedding. It was elegant, chic and just oh-so-pretty. Apart from the obvious stunning backdrop, Semi also planned all the wedding details herself and the end product was a true labour of love – and an exquisite one at that.

The day started with Semi getting ready in a room with a view at Divani Apollon Palace & Spa. I love Semi’s choice of Vera Wang dress which was teamed with a bespoke embroidered sash, accessories from Jenny Packham and a glittery pair of Louboutin shoes. The boys didn’t look too shabby either – David looked relaxed but dapper in a blue bow tie/trousers combo while the two best men’s turqouise green bow ties were a perfect match to the bridesmaids’ dresses.

I had visited the venue the day before but it really took my breath away when I arrived at Island and saw it all set up. It is such a perfect venue for a destination wedding with its chilled out atmosphere and jaw-dropping setting. Semi & David had chosen a full moon date for their wedding and it was just the icing on the cake, the sunset ceremony was quickly followed by the moon rising behind the hills – it was pure magic.

I could go on about it all day so maybe I should just shut up and let the pictures do the talking. Oh and do check back soon as I’ll be blogging their post-wedding shoot shortly (more pretties!).


Oh and when I said it was a full moon wedding, this is what I mean- here is a photo of the (epic) moon that night. It was massive!
