Victoria & Matthew Santorini wedding 2009
Victoria & Matthew Nichol married in Santorini on 9th May 2009. They and their and guests stayed at a boutique hotel in the south of the island which they hired exclusively.
The ceremony took place at a luxury hotel in Imerovigli. During the day, the girls sunbathed on the terrace and enjoyed pampering before getting ready. Victoria and Matthew exchanged vows on the terrazza on the caldera, with spectacular views looking out towards the pristine Aegean sea. The guests then enjoyed champagne and watched the beautiful sunset.
The reception took place in the hotel, where guests enjoyed a sumptuous meal prepared by the award winning chefs. A dj played until late and then the guests were transported back to their hotel to carry on partying until the sun came up.
Here's what Victoria said about the preparation for her magical day:
Choosing the island of Santorini to get married on was an adventure in itself. With the help of Ionian weddings we travelled around four of the Greek islands to find our dream wedding location. We visited Crete, Naxos, Amorgos and Santorini and unbelievably on every island we found great locations to have our wedding! Eventually it was the views and hotels on the island of Santorini that ticked our boxes.
With the help of Ionian we found a perfect hotel in the secluded Vlychada resort with 30 Bedrooms perfect for our 56 guests and with the most fantastic spa and poolside area. The sister hotel in Imerovigli with its fantastic views over the Caldera is where we chose to have our wedding and reception. Over the following 12 months Ionian Weddings helped plan every last detail of our dream wedding including my very specific request for flowers that needed to be imported onto the island.
Ionian Weddings made every part of the planning process as easy as possible. Organising the wedding paperwork was not a daunting task with Andreas to help and as he's Greek we didn't have to worry about a thing. Ionian Weddings helped us find the lowest costs and the best services for all our needs. The service Ionian Weddings provided in planning our wedding made getting married abroad so much easier and an experience that we just want to go back and do all over again!
It was the best day of our lives, and we'll never forget it. Thank you!!
