Wedding proposals are so intimate and personal, they should reflect you as a couple and remind you of moments you have shared together. And what an honour this has been, to capture this proposal unfolding in action in a warm and sunny day on the island. Blue and white hydrangeas were beautifully placed in the bookstore, not causing suspicion to Georgia, and the long white piano was located in the terrace for Yida to play his song.
Little did Georgia know when wandering inside the bookstore and looking around for books that she was in for her biggest surprise. Starting to discover clues she followed the leads to the terrace. Books that were about their life as a couple were placed in the bookstore and hidden pieces of shared memories were gracefully hidden in books. Georgia noticed the music from the piano and found Yida playing a song in the piano he wrote for her; the moment he took out the engagement ring and proposed to Georgia was full of emotions: there was love, faith, surprise, happiness and endless romance. Georgia’s parents joined in on the celebrations, because what better way to celebrate your engagement than sipping champagne and enjoying the views of the Aegean?
The best way to end this authentic proposal, was walking around Oia and its cobblestoned alleys and capturing the content couple against the beauty of Santorini. Bright sunlight and the Aegean blue were there providing the picture perfect backdrop for our imagery. Oia views were breathtaking as always, fuchsia bougainvillea against whitewashed houses and blue domes scattered in the area is all that makes Santorini so unique and dreamy. Capturing this beauty with raw emotions is a winning combination!
