Well, here’s something we’ve never seen before! Unique wedding lighting is certainly a creative way to up the design ante—and this inspired wedding with LED lights set on a rocky cliff in Oia undeniably proves the point! So, how’d it come to be? Maria at Tie the Knot Santorini was floored by the jaw-dropping beautiful location at Eden Villa of Canaves Oia and knew she wanted to plan a shoot. All she needed was a visionary idea to lead the way. Enter friend and interior designer Panos Zaverdinos:
When he saw the amazing cliff with rock statues, he was speechless. And then he said, “Well, this setting feels like it came out of a futuristic movie…like aliens are going to land here. At the same time, the minimal and wild Cycladic environment makes it even more interesting. What would you think of a LED installation…created by aliens?” Instantly, the whole setup was created in my mind!! And I shouted, “I LOVE IT.”
Maria then called up photographers Chris & Ruth who were immediately on board. Curious to see how it all came to be? Let’s have a look!
First, we must address the gown!! The bride wore an open-back boho wedding dress by Daughters of Simone — isn’t it dreamy?
Framed by Florals
Next up, no one does jaw-dropping boho wedding florals like Betty Flowers Santorini. This organic display of pampas grass clouds was the perfect neutral frame for the couple!
Y’all. THE BOOTS.
Before we jump into a little sunset stroll, let’s take a second to appreciate this fun modern cake by Alexandra’s Cakes!
Cliffside Candles at Sunset
Look how perfect this little alcove is! Surrounded by pillar candles and overlooking the sunset on the water while you dine with your newly-minted spouse? Yeah, we’re sold.
Just a visual display of our bucket list right here.
Cliffside Wedding With LED Lights
So here we go—how cool is this?! Panos Zaverdinos had a vision and totally pulled it off!
Is it not SO stunning?!
How can we have more LED lights in wedding design? Totally on board with this becoming a trend!
Such a stunner. We could see LEDs being so fun for receptions and nighttime elopements. Light the night and bring it on!
