Every image really captured the happiness and atmosphere felt on the day! Thank you so much!
My first ever visit to Santorini, and my first ever destination wedding at Santo Winery. I couldn’t have imagined photographing a better couple than Jeena & Hanish! I’ve known Hanish for a long time, probably over twenty years, so it was a true honour when he asked me to document his wedding to Jeena in Santorini. Santo Winery is an amazing venue in Santori, with spectacular island views of the Aegan Sea it was the perfect backdrop for Jeena and Hanish’s wedding.
I arrived two nights before the wedding day, and from the moment I landed, I was welcomed by everyone with giant hugs! The first thing Hanish said was put your bags down, chill out, and then we’re all going out tonight with the boys. It was a brilliant fun night, and an awesome way to meet so many of Hanish’s close friends. Destination weddings can be very lonely so it was amazing being welcomed by everyone and making me a part of their inner circle.
The next day I met Jeena for the the first time as we walked around Oia in Santorini, one of the most famous villages, known for its stunning views, amazing sunsets and the blue domes. I had a great time with both of them on their pre-shoot and I knew their wedding was going to be special.
On the morning of the wedding day, I spent my time between Jeena and her bridesmaids getting ready and Hanish with his groomsmen getting ready. Jeena was super calm, where as Hanish was a little nervous and was trying to keep his emotions in check. Once everyone was ready we made our way to Santo Winery for the ceremony. The nerves from Hanish suddenly disappeared when he met Jeena for the first time on their wedding day at the top of the aisle. From that moment on they were both laughing and having fun with one another.
After the ceremony everyone went to the drinks reception enjoying the beautiful views from Santo Winery, and then as the sunset we wandered off to take some portraits around the cliffs. Once we got back it was time for some super heartfelt and emotional speeches, followed by their first dance and an epic party till the early hours of the morning.
Thank you Jeena & Hanish for letting me be a part of your amazing wedding celebrations in Santorini! You guys are surrounded by a tremendous group of family and friends, and it was a pleasure to spend a few days with you all. Now on to some of my favourite frames from their wedding in Santo Winery, Santorini.
