Santorini Wedding Video – Cavo Ventus & Theros Wave Bar

August 21, 2018

As a Destination Wedding Videographer, it has been a dream of ours to one day shoot a Santorini wedding. The Caldera is a truly beautiful and such a unique setting for a wedding. I always feel so lucky when couples invest in flying us to these amazing locations to create their wedding video.

Logistics always complicate things for a Destination Wedding Videographer. It felt really good to have Tamara and Jose book us all the way from Miami. We met for the first time at the quayside as we boarded the Thalassa for the pre wedding Sunset Cruise. The atmosphere was incredible as the guests brought Miami to Santorini.

The Cuban influence

The Cuban influence was strong with the music, dancing and Havana Club flowing. What a start to a magical wedding weekend. The cliffside venue was arranged and styled by the amazing Santorini Glam Weddings at Cavo Ventus for the ceremony and then on the the beach at the Theros Wave Bar. Even the Aegean has the rare rainy day, but it didn’t stop this party.

I was keen to feature more of people than places. A Destination Wedding videographer needs to still primarily focus on the couple. Creating a Santorini Wedding video that did not heavily feature with the traditional white buildings and blue domed churches kind of became a goal for us.

Nothing staged, nothing posed was the plan.

I loved how this was all about the excitement of two families in a dream location

The plan when shooting a Destination Wedding video, is to be subtle about the location and not drown out the wedding with travel video style shots that are full of too many cliche panoramic views. Location is like a third character in the edit. Location should never upstage the couple.

Firstly this is a story of Tamara & Jose, second to a santorini wedding video.

I hope you enjoy this one as much as we did…
