Marriage Proposal at Dana Villas Venue

santorini dana villas marriage proposal

Santorini is a hotspot for couples who want to enjoy a romantic and relaxing vacation, and many of those couples get engaged while on our beautiful island. It’s been my happy privilege to have seen and photographed hundreds of such proposals, all carried out in a host of wonderful and perfect ways. From renting an entire venue like Dana Villas in Firostefani, to lighting thousands of candles by the sea, Santorini presents countless opportunities for the most memorable proposal.

Ray And Ruby’s Story

Not so long ago, Ray contacted me requiring my photography services to capture his proposal to his beautiful girlfriend Ruby on the rooftop of Dana Villas, one of the best and most spectacular proposal spots on Santorini. Since Santorini’s sunsets are famous for their unique, romantic atmosphere, Ray decided to pop the question just a few moments before the sun took its final dip into the Aegean Sea. To make the situation even more perfect, Ray had decided to make this the perfect gift for Ruby’s birthday! This Santorini marriage proposal was like a real-life fairy tale, and everything went perfectly. We were all so excited when she said yes!

A stunning Engagement In Santorini

There is a reason why Dana Villas is such as perfect location for a marriage proposal! For Ray’s proposal, the helpful stuff decorated the private balcony with a candle lit heart along with rose petals to set the right mood for the occasion. The planning of this Santorini marriage proposal was very careful and everything went like a dream.

As the photographer, I arrived at the private balcony before the couple so that I could get a few photos of the decor. Ruby had no idea about what her boyfriend had planned. After their arrival and his quick speech, Ray pulled the engagement ring out of his pocket, got down on one knee, and asked Ruby to marry him while in Greece.

Ruby was very surprised, but delighted, and she said yes without any hesitation! What a stunning moment! I felt so blessed to be able to be the couple’s Santorini proposal photographer for their perfect moment at Dana Villas. The day ended with the couple enjoying a private dinner and talking about their happy and exciting future that they were planning together.

A few months later, I received a message from Ruby to say that the couple were planning their wedding for May 2019, and it would be taking place on Santorini! She gave me the honor of asking me to be their wedding photographer. I was absolutely thrilled to be given such a wonderful opportunity and it was my turn to have no hesitation in saying yes!

    My name is Alexander and I will come to Santorini from 7 of August until 17 of Aug. In this period I want to propose my girlfriend and I was wondering if you can help us to capture this moment in images. How much does it cost?

    Good afternoon,

    I am planning to make a marriage proposal to my girlfriend during our upcoming trip to Oia, Santorini, on the 25th of August. I will plan to make the proposal at sunset from the balcony of the villa. I would love some ‘hidden’ photography during the proposal, immediately followed by some engagement photos in the same location.

    I read all your great reviews, and hope you can be available on the evening of the 25th of August. Please let me know, and thank you.[

    Best regards,

    I am looking to have a photographer for a proposal on a sunset cruise on September 9. Are you available that day? The cruises I am looking at go from about 15:30 to after sunset which is around 19:30 so I will need a photographer for about 5 hours. Would the rate be similar to the Gold package on the website?

    Hi I’m John from London, i am planning to propose to my girlfriend on the 6th of july in Oia. I am hoping to have a private area during sunset where i can do this. It will be amazing to have photography for an hour during and after the proposal. Please let me know any recommendations for location.

    Hello, My Girlfriend and I will be in Santorini in May and I’m looking to plan the perfect proposal. I would like to have it all captured by a professional. I’m looking to do a romantic dinner with a sea view, candles, flowers, etc… I was wondering if you had any packages you would recommend and locations to book with the best sunset view. Thank you!

    Hi. I am surprising my girlfriend who is in Greece. I’m flying to Santorini from Canada to propose. Since I’m not in Greece at the moment, I wanted to get a professional photographer who’s done engagement photos in the area. I’m looking for the classic Santorini couples photos with the scenic back drop. We’ve been doing the long distance relationship thing for 4 out of the 5 years of being together. So this would be a huge surprise.
