Do you want to know the secret to shooting killer pre-wedding, engagement or wedding portraits in Oia Santorini?

The best tip I can give you is to sacrifice your lie in, wake up before sunrise and go when no one is around. You’ll usually get the occasional photoshoot or influencer there at the same time, but it won’t be as crazy busy as it is during the day.

Pre Wedding engagement photoshoot Oia Santorini

It’s no secret that Santorini holds an incredibly special place in my heart. This year was the second time I’ve visited and it will certainly not be the last. The weather, the magical quality of light you can only capture on this island, the people, the food, the views- it’s a lovers paradise. If you’re looking to elope, say your vows somewhere truly special I would not hesitate to consider Santorini. With an inspirational elopement at Grace Hotel Santorini Imerovigli it is a hidden treasure on the island with volcanic views of the caldera, the most glorious sunset and stunning balcony views for your ceremony.

Elopement at Grace Hotel Imerovigli Santorini Greece

Beacon House in Whitstable Kent will always have a special place in my heart. It was originally the venue Jonathan and I had planned to get married at but once our guest list gradually got larger it sadly wasn’t meant to be. However on our wedding day we still took a walk there and had some of our wedding portraits in their beautiful gardens on the tree swing. I’ve shot another elopement at Beacon House since and it still remains my favourite wedding venue in all of Kent.

Port Lympne Safari Wedding

Rustic bridges arching gracefully over emerald water, sunlight dancing playfully off the crests of the waves on The Grand Canal, the voices of gondoliers, raised in song and echoing down ancient cobbled streets…could there be a better setting for a timeless love story than the breathtakingly romantic city of Venice? From a heartbreaking proposal to whirlwind […]

Venice Elopement with a blush dress and gondola proposal

Pass through the rustic, vine-draped archway of Canaves Oia Santorini and descend the winding stone steps. Within a few strides, your view opens up to Santorini’s breathtaking caldera, a deep blue expanse decorated with the bubbling white wakes of speed boats cutting their way across the waves.  Continue past the hotel’s private infinity pools and […]
