Dare we say that the roaring 1920s are one of our favorite style decades? The glitz, the glamour — the era was all about decadence and liberation, and the fashion of the time was no exception. It was the first time opulence met the free spirit, coming together for wild elegance and this is why we are hands down in love with this editorial, that is both fashion forward and statement-making.
Sitting smack-dab in the center of the volcanic isle, the chalky white Rocabella in Santorini is simply an absolute delicacy for sunset-watching and resort-hopping, and this art deco inspired glam shoot with Santorini Glam Weddings on our side had wedding vision written across every stitch.
Topped by drifts of whitewashed cubes and with a reputation for dazzling panoramas, we headed to the hotel’s multicolored cliffs to capture the romantic wedding of two brides and chase the sunset jumping a ceremonial glasshouse made of stained glass.
We loved how beautifully floral pieces made of pampas grass and David Austin blooms from Betty Flowers Santorini worked with the head-turning pastiness of the terrace where oak chairs alluding to the dashing decade were employed in lieu of pews. Our tablescape set in muted prunes, peachy and yellow floral arrangements came together seamlessly with menus and place cards made of glass tiles -also used for the couple’s vows and stationery suites- happy notes of citrus and spices, pretty silks and clean lines.
Our two brides wore fashion by the wonderful Crochelle, whose vision blends “beautiful creatures” to Sophia Coppola heroines, while artisan jeweler Poniros brought an air of Greek chic, with real diamonds, that bore the icons of the island: the Santorini wreath vine engagement ring, the Windmill, and the Volcanic Flower.
This fusion of frail and opulent, glam and captivating still minimal and crisp as well as working with the top-notch creative teams of the Secret Owl Santorini is a dream come true in our books. Enjoy!
