Dana Villas, Santorini: Sam and Darren’s Simply Stunning Santorini Celebration


Santorini, in all its Greek glory, played home to the whimsical wedding of Sam and Darren.

The couple first met in Newcastle, when Darren moved down from his home in Scotland. Their relationship grew stronger when Darren proposed on their first family holiday with their little girl.

Sam and Darren always knew they wanted a floral theme to their special day – a wedding where they would ‘wow’ their guests.

The Venue:

‘Your Dream Santorini Wedding’
Dreaming of that white, wanderlust wedding, Dana Villas Santorini provided the breath-taking views and picture-perfect backdrop Sam and Darren had only ever imagined.

Embracing the traditional cliff-side settlement, Dana Villas offered unobstructed panoramic views of the beautiful Santorini sunset. Boasting magical surroundings and unique architectural beauty, it comes as no surprise that the couple fell in love with this luxurious Greek setting.

Sam – “The views alone are just wow - if you were on a budget, you wouldn’t even need to style the venue. Also, a huge shout out to the staff that can not do enough for you.”

The Dress:

“I found The Wedding Dress Company on Instagram and I knew instantly by the picture of their dresses that I would find my dream dress and I did on my first visit - it was the only shop I went to!” - Sam

This stunning Stella York gown was scattered with intricate embellishments, complete with lace detailing and a hint of blush colouring. Sam walked the aisle in this gorgeous figure hugging dress, adding beauty and class to her sun-kissed Santorini celebration.

The Bride’s Advice:

“Don’t get too caught up in the plans – the little things are lovely but they aren’t everything, it’s easy to forget what it’s really all about.

The wedding day is just one day; don’t forget you have the rest of your lives to enjoy!

What mattered was becoming a family, sharing the same family name and having the most amazing day with everyone we love.”
