Elegant Indian wedding in Santorini, Sharon and Rowan

An East-Meets-West elegant Indian Wedding in Santorini, Greece, Sharon & Rowan

 

A European-style elegant Indian wedding in Santorini that oozes romanticism, impressive rituals and customs, and an unforgettable party… blended together in a dreamy 3-day celebration of love.

Sharon and Rowan, based in the U.K. but always honoring their Indian origins, chose to tie the knot with an uber-chic wedding in Greece.

Day 1 – The Trail of Indian wedding Traditions, Mehndi party in Santorini beach venue

Sharon and Rowan’s wedding story started one day before the ceremony with a great Mehndi party at the superior Akro Beach Bar in Santorini, a romantic paradise in a postcard-perfect location.

Mehendi is the art of creating elaborate and intricate patterns and designs on a bride-to-be with henna. Centuries before a bridal shower or a pre-wedding party became a prerequisite for Western brides-to-be, women in India celebrated their nuptials with their closest female friends during a mehndi ceremony – like the joyful one that we had the chance to witness!

Our wedding planning team in Greece opted for bold and vibrant hues, multiple textures that created depth and harmony, and celebratory floral installations that were chosen to create elegant vibes.

Day 2 – The Route of Romance, wedding Ceremony & Reception in LeCiel

The stunning terrace of LeCiel elegant wedding venue in Santorini and the idyllic caldera offered a truly stunning backdrop to Sharon and Rowan’s most heartwarming moments.

The dazzling colors of the Aegean Sea and the Cycladic sky provided the perfect complement to the festive colors of this unique destination wedding in Greece.

Yes, the couple loved these wedding trends of 2020: color palettes are extending beyond the ‘something blue’ and classic white colors we’re used to, and unexpected décor materials are used to add a unique layer of dimension to every wedding detail!

And then the lovely couple and their 80 guests were ready to hit the dance floor and get the wedding party started! For the fabulous reception area, we wanted to create a sophisticated and aery look, with a classic, soft color palette, to add an essential touch of vividness.

Light-up letters provided a magical ambiance, adding a little extra sparkle and a hint of glamorous romance to the once-in-a-lifetime occasion.
