The Most Romantic Elopement in Santorini

Sarah and John dreamed of a perfect wedding in Santorini, and that's exactly what they had! Travelshoot was there to capture their destination wedding, which left them with beautiful images to remember their special moment by. We caught up with Sarah to hear more about her destination wedding and her experience with Travelshoot.

Why did you choose to elope/have a destination wedding?

We chose to elope as it was a second marriage for me and third marriage for John.  We wanted to commit to each other and be in a beautiful setting where we could then have an amazing holiday.


Why Santorini?

Santorini was somewhere neutral for both of us and somewhere we had always wanted to go. It looked romantic and beautiful for both eloping and a holiday.

Best thing about your destination wedding in Santorini?

The best thing about the wedding in Santorini was the ease of it all, the beauty and the romance. We had a wedding package for 3 nights which included the ceremony on our own private terrace, a beautiful candlelit dinner and lots of other extras.. We felt very special.


Best tip for someone planning a wedding overseas?

Just do it.  We booked through a travel agent whom we spent time with choosing accommodation etc.  Try not to leave it too late to plan.  If it is peak season, it’s hard to get what you want if you leave things too late.  If you are eloping, plan ahead, book a hairdresser etc, and make sure you have everything you need before you go as you don’t want to be running around trying to buy and organise things when you get there.

What is your favourite Travelshoot photo and why?

My favourite Travelshoot photo is with the me leaning back and my hair hanging down. It shows the back of my dress and John’s big smile, and has the church and ocean in the background.  I love it as it captures Santorini and us.
