Crazy about Christmas….so are the team at Weddings By Sanya!
Like we saw with Max and Lucie’s Austrian winter wedding, the use of Christmas decor and seasonal colours can add an extra special touch to your destination wedding. With this in mind Sanya Styles, Greek destination wedding planner and founder of online wedding magazine Ellwed, created this festive inspirational shoot full of gorgeous Christmas wedding ideas.
Weddings By Sanya’s top tips for a Christmas wedding include making a playlist with all of your favourite Christmas songs to play in the background, using snow (fake or real) instead of rice, confetti or rose petals, and making a romantic photo shoot with your partner while snow is falling on you.

The idea was to use rich holiday orientated decoration and to incorporate them into the event.
In our case, we prepared a styled wedding shoot, but we believe that the theme and the style can actually work with any party or event, as long as it’s in December and holiday orientated.
We followed the holiday colour guidelines to put together the style and theme. We used reds with greens and of course white with hints of grey.
The bridal dress was topped with a cosy sweater and faux fur. Bridal bouquet was made with Christmas flower, The Poinsettia, pine and Christmas balls. This red “Flame Leaf” or “Flower of the Holy Night” and the long needle pine was used throughout the set in in every corner and even the centrepiece of the table to create the rich and holiday feeling.
The use of lights and lanterns all over the set helped fill the space as well as conjured that festive warm feeling. At the end, we treated ourselves with “melomakarona” traditional Greek cookies with honey and nuts made only in the holiday period.
