Every so often you get a couple that is truly inspired and inspiring and so was Katrina and John. These two have been engaged since 2011 but as the birth of their two sons dominated their lives for a few years, a proper wedding and celebration was inevitably put on hold.
“[...] having our dream wedding was starting to fade and we ended up having a long 5 year engagement. We were practically married right? But being a girl I still wanted THAT magical day. We have been lusting over Greece since our 2011 European trip and had always said that one day we would come back.” - Katrina
They spontaneously decided on following their hearts to Greece for an intimate wedding that would also double as a family holiday making the decision perfect. “We locked in our anniversary date 27th June, contacted Stella & Moscha and the rest was history. It was the best decision we ever made. It was the perfect and epic 3 day sun-filled celebration with breathtaking views and spectacular sunsets with our best friends and family.” – Katrina
George Pahountis’ lens captured the couple’s vows, the stylish guests and every bit of the simplistic yet luxurious decor that blended perfectly with the vintage character of La Maltese in Imerovigli. The golden details added just enough accentuation to the decor to create a classy finish that let the golden tones of the sunset to take over.

The highlight of the night: The elegant white cake with gold shavings and stark white hydrangeas playfully mated with the kids’ favourite superhero. Batman couldn’t make it to Santorini this summer so we had to make do with the best possible substitute.
