When it comes to destination weddings in Greece, there are so many luxurious wedding villas Santorini has to offer. And for Yara and Nabih, their gorgeous Santorini wedding is enough to make anyone entirely inspired, if not slightly jealous.
Why? Not only was the location a piece of heaven on earth, but the bride’s magnificent wedding dress and the groom’s dapper suit left their guests breathless. So, how did this fairytale wedding come to be?
The beautiful bride and groom met one afternoon at work in Dubai. Little did they know that this chance encounter would lead to a romantic wedding in Greece, and a lifetime of sheer happiness. And it all started with the engagement proposal…
Nabih decided that the Cove Rotana Resort in Ras el Khaimah would be the perfect place to confess his love for Yara. For that reason, the pair, along with three other couples, celebrated Valentine’s Day at this beautiful resort. Then, on the 12th of February 2016, Nabih got down on one knee at sunset, and proposed to the love of his life.
What comes next? The wedding planning! Yara and Nabih knew without a doubt that Santorini would be the perfect location for their wedding. After all, this stunning island is known as “the island of love”.
But the pair hadn’t fallen head over heels when it came to finding a venue, despite the fact that there are so many gorgeous wedding villas Santorini has to offer! Until they spotted Thermes Luxury Villas. And with that, the location was confirmed and ready for some spectacular memories courtesy of wedding photography Santorini experts, Liam and Stam.
The lovely couple had met Liam and Stam whilst at their friend’s Michella and Eddy’s wedding in Crete in 2016. Shortly after, they were so impressed with the wedding photography Santorini shoot that Michella and Eddy had done with Liam and Stam, that they knew they had to have them as their photographers for their big day.
What a pleasure it was to work alongside these two beautiful newly weds, as not only amazing wedding photography memories were captured, but also some excellent shots from the helicopter ride around the island before the ceremony.
Finally, after a morning of sheer bliss, the pair had their ceremony inside Christos Church, alongside their three bridesmaids and three groomsmen. Yara simply lit up the venue with her wedding dress from Pronovias Dubai, and Nabih looked ever so smart wearing a custom-made suit from Regent & Brummell.
It is safe to say that, after these two love birds searched high and low for perfect wedding villas Santorini, Yara and Nabih’s found the best spot that made their big day a really magical moment, full of love, happiness and beauty.
