This Santorini Cliffside Elopement is Giving Us Major Wanderlust

January 11, 2019 | juliette

Charlotte and James certainly epitomized the less-is-more style in their Santorini cliffside elopement! The adventurous couple decided last minute that they wanted a different ceremony location, and the team at Santorini Glam Weddings and Lighthouse Photography came in clutch with finding this stunning cliffside locale! They tied the knot with the caldera behind them and nothing more than a wooden A-frame backdrop and two white rugs to frame their ceremony…and the finished look could not have been more romantic. The rustic setting, the bride’s sweet boho style, the couple’s sweetheart reception back at Kamares Apartments, and the pink hues of the Grecian sunset all came together to create a truly breathtaking destination elopement!

The Couple:

Charlotte and James

The Wedding:

Santorini, Greece

The whole day will forever be our favourite memory but the most memorable part was the cliff edge we got married on. Originally we wanted the ceremony on our terrace, but our last minute change of plan meant that our amazing wedding planners at Santorini Glam Weddings and photographer at Lighthouse Photography found this beautiful cliff edge and it was absolutely breathtaking.

Our advice: find your style and stick to it. Also, trust your team! Our wedding planners, photographers, the kind staff at the venue, and caterers were all amazing. We chose wisely and it definitely paid off! Most importantly, do not stress and enjoy the planning as much as you anticipate to enjoy the actual wedding day!

Our wedding photographer, Teo, was an absolute pleasure to work with. He made us feel so relaxed, happy, and comfortable on our day as we were a little nervous! He also suggested incredible locations to have photos.
