The perfect wedding
SWP are professional yet caring planners that took a genuine intererst in your special day, where there was never a request too difficult or too over reaching. We had complete trust in SWP in everything they presented and being overseas, trust in your planner is everything. The day went off without a hitch, everything was pefect and run exactly as how we envisioned and this was a result of meticulous planning and attention to deal from the SWP team. Only thing that they cannot take credit for was the amazing weather!
We, along with our 60 guests, are very thankful for SWP and would recommend them to any couple who are planning a wedding in Santorini, big or small.Sent on 11/09/2019

A Dream Realized
When we decided to get married in Santorini, we knew we would need a dynamic local team to bring our dream to life. Shirley and Maria were a prayer answered. They are creative, have a great lineup of vendor partners and they welcomed collaboration. They went the extra mile to ensure our day was one to remember, and every single detail was treated with care. I highly recommend that you work with this dream team!
*Special Note: I am an African American bride. Shirley and Maria partner with vendors that are well versed in thicker hair textures and darker skin complexions. This was very important to me.

Shirley and Maria arranged a surprise 20th anniversary vow renewal for my wife and I, and it was everything we could have hoped for. Our ceremony was a simple one, but it was thoughtfully done with many little details that my wife loved. I can only imagine how awesome it would have been if we went big!Sent on 09/03/2019

The most incredible day.
Firstly Stephen and I cannot put into words how happy we are that we found Shirley and Maria, they made all our dreams for our big day come true!
Wonderful, friendly and absolutely dedicated ladies who work hard to give couples their dream wedding as Stephen said during his speech “we struck gold” when we found Shirley and Maria!
Nothing asked was too much trouble, even planning a helicopter transfer to our reception something quite extravagant which made our evening rather lavish!
We would absolutely recommend Shirley and Maria everything they do has that personal touch to make you have the perfect day, they are the best at what they do.
So a massive thank you from Stephen and I for everything you both did to make our day the absolute dream it was, our guests cannot stop talking about our wedding, how amazing and wonderful it was.
We look forward to visiting for our one year anniversary and hope to see you both again. Xx

The Most Perfect Wedding
Our wedding day could not have been more perfect. Each and every moment went according to plan. I did not feel the least bit stressed on the big day, and this is all thanks to Shirley and Maria!
Throughout the entire planning process, Shirley and Maria were kind, friendly, caring, detailed, organized, prompt, professional, and so lovely. I always looked forward to receiving emails from them and planning together.
Once we got to Santorini, all appointments and meeting were planned out one by one and all the information was easy to digest. We truly were in good hands, and we could feel it.
I am SO happy that I chose Santorini Wedding Planners. Shirley and Maria are such wonderful people and they did the most fantastic job. I couldn't have dreamt of anything better!!Sent on 08/04/2019

Could not have asked for a more knowledgeable and professional wedding planner!
Shirley and Maria were wonderful from start to finish. Being from the US, we were weary about planning a trip overseas. But, these two were so knowledgeable and trustworthy, they made planning so easy. By the time we finally met them they truly felt like family. We were so happy with every detail of our wedding and could not have asked for a better experience.Sent on 08/26/2019

Thanks to the Santorini wedding planners my now husband & myself had a blast with our friends and family. I would recommend them to everyone! It’s hard to plan from Colorado USA to Santorini Greece but they did a wonderful job making our dream night come true. Everything was just gorgeous! Wouldn’t change a thing. Can’t wait to get all the photos back of this beautiful day❤️

My wedding was something out of a movie !
Words cannot express our gratitude for Shirley and her team. My wedding was something out of a movie ! It was the PERFECT wedding and it's all because of Shirley and Maria. All I had were ideas on Pinterest and thousands of miles between me and my wedding venue, the rest was all Shirley’s magic and she brought everything to life. She helped plan a spectacular two day event and had every detail under control, was ready with back-up plans, and implementation was seamless. She was respectful of my ideas, budget, and understood culture differences and bridged the gaps where needed, especially when it came to communicating with my husband Michael, who can be challenging at times LOL :-). Every moment was perfect and will be remembered as one of the best weddings by our family and friends and we could not have done any of this without Shirley.
We are forever grateful!

Simply put I could not recommend Shirley and Maria more. Our Santorini wedding including 4 events for 67 people was flawless. They could not be more organized, professional, and easy to work with. I put all my trust in them while planning this wedding from across the world via the internet and it worked out perfectly. I feel lucky to have found them. They recommended amazing vendors and covered all the details and then some that I probably didn't even know about. Once we finally met in person for the wedding it felt as if I had known them forever. They quickly felt like family whom genuinely cared about us and knew exactly the type of couple we were and what we wanted for our wedding. We will miss interacting with them on a regular basis.Sent on 06/07/2019

Shirley and Maria are consummate professionals who took care of every detail involved in our Destination Wedding! The legal paperwork involved in an official Greek Orthodox Church Wedding approved by both church and civil authorities is challenging, and both Shirley and Maria were there guiding us through the two year planning process. After our incredible experience in Santorini, we feel like they’re part of our family! Yiassou! Highly Recommended!Sent on 10/09/2018
Santorini Wedding Planners's reply:Kate, thank you so much for your kind review!

Highly recommended! Santorini Wedding Planners provided a quality service from the moment we made contact. Both Shirley and Maria's personal approach and attention to detail enabled us to plan the wedding of our dreams. From our initial skype meeting they gave us the confidence that the finer detail would be taken care of. They delivered beyond our expectations.Sent on 11/01/2018

We cannot recommend Shirley, Maria and her team enough - they turned the wedding of our dreams into a reality. From the first visit we made to check out venues, Shirley was so kind, helpful, informative and supportive. Shirley was also very accommodating and flexible throughout our planning process, as she supported us with the evolving nature of what we wanted for our wedding day. We were particularly pleased with how much Shirley understood exactly what we wanted from vendors and how accurately this information was communicated to them - the flowers, decor, lighting, music, food... everything was exactly as we had explained and envisaged. The day itself was beyond perfection, it couldn't have run any more smoothly and this is all down to Shirley's organisation and her fantastic team. Thank you so much for the best day of our lives, our friends and family cannot stop raving about how wonderful it was! Do not hesitate to book Shirley and her team, they are the best in the business.Sent on 07/30/2018

Dominique · Married on 07/06/2018
I could not possibly recommend Shirley and Maria at Santorini Wedding Planners highly enough. Their professional and supportive service was more than I could have hoped for. From the moment I contacted Shirley, almost a year and a half before our actual wedding day, she was nothing short of organised, prompt with responses, informative and honest. Shirley put all of my worries at ease and provided me every available option for our big day. I had the most stress-free wedding and I owe that to Shirley and Maria. Every single detail was exactly what we had discussed and our day was absolutely perfect.Sent on 07/24/2018

Maria & Shirley were hands down the BEST wedding planners ever!! Having a destination wedding is stressful in itself. Planning a destination wedding is, well, craziness. However, with Santorini Wedding Planners on our side, our planning process was flawless. Making our wedding day seamlessly PERFECT! We could not have asked for anything more as we were blessed with everything we possibly wanted. Santorini Wedding Planner along with Kapari Natural Resort made all our wedding dreams come true!!! Efcharistó Maria, Shirley and the whole staff of Kapari for your professionalism, attention to detail & whole hearted kindness. We will forever love each and every one of you!!!! ... and will be back to visit ?? .... Until then, Yamas!!Sent on 06/21/2018

Shirley and her assistant Maria and everyone involved during our special day were AMAZING!

I don’t even know where to begin... Shirley and Maria helped to create a day we will never ever forget!
From the beginning the communication was amazing, Shirley asked questions and gave ideas for parts of the day that I would never have even thought of.
Nothing was ever too much trouble for the ladies at Santorini Wedding planners. Every appointment was well organised and they went above and beyond their duties!
James and I couldn’t thank you enough and would reccomend to EVERYONE!!! Your the best!Sent on 10/15/2017

Christina · Married on 10/03/2017
I planned our elopement from Los Angeles, and it could not have been any more perfect thanks to Santorini Wedding Planners. Shirley didn't miss a single detail. We met her the day before our ceremony. She walked us through how the wedding would work and gave us a timeline for the following day. She even ensured that I got my dress and veil steamed, and it would be delivered without the groom seeing it.
The wedding day could not have gone any smoother. My hair and make up girls, Bella and Renia, whom Shirley booked, were absolutely wonderful. I've had my hair and make up done many times, and they were hands down the sweetest bunch that ensured I looked like how I wanted. Shirley arrived before the ceremony, and brought her wonderful assistant Lauren. Lauren ended up staying with me in the bridal suite and helping me with all the little things (even zipping my dress for me). It all came together with the traditional musicians Shirley booked leading me in a grand entrance. Walking down the stairs to my groom was the best feeling, and I barely had to lift a finger to make it all happen- Shirley did all of the coordinating behind the scenes for me. Our Greek officiant was perfect and let us incorporate our own vows, and the cake was delicious - Shirley even arranged for a gluten free cake, no easy feat on the island.
I would recommend Shirley to anyone considering eloping in Santorini. She is kind, professional, and very well connected to the best of the best!

Shirley & Maria helped us to create the wedding we had envisioned. They were extremely responsive and easy to work with. We planned our wedding along with a boat cruise from the US and although we didn't meet in person until the days before our wedding we felt like we knew them already. They were flexible when we changed our vision along the way. Even, when we surprised them with 2 additional guests the week of the wedding, they put us at ease and took care of everything. We highly recommend their services. Shirley was the first wedding planner on Santorini when she started her business - Santorini Wedding Planners, she had all the contacts and experience you need to help you plan you day!Sent on 10/03/2017

Shirley & Maria took all the pressure off us by planning our magical wedding in Santorini, they are professional yet friendly too, nothing is too much trouble for them to organise. Our wedding day was much better than we ever expected and the day went so smoothly, I would have no hesitation in recommending Shirley and her team to plan your dream wedding, we have come to regard Shirley as a friend & will pop in and see her next year when we return to the beautiful romantic island of Santorini.

We were the luckiest couple to have found and chosen Shirley as our wedding planner.Sent on 07/14/2017
Shirley was the most detailed oriented person, responsable, fast and caring.
Every detail, every picture we sent her with everything we wanted was there.
Our wedding was perfect and thanks to her it exceeded our expectations.
Destination weddings are not easy, but she made it so smooth and stress free that we never worried about a thing.
We planned our wedding with a lot of time (14 months in advance) which made it easier for us to find the perfect venue and details that we needed for our big day.
She thought about small things that we would've never even considered just to make sure everything was on point.
The venue, the music, flowers, decoration, photographers, videographer, dancers, make-up artist, hair stylist- everything to the smallest detail was to perfection.
We would've never been able to make it without her.
I would recommend Shirley 100% as your wedding planner. Without a doubt she was the best person we could have possibly hired!
Santorini Wedding Planners's reply:Carolina and Milos, thank you so much! Your wedding day was really great and ended with an amazing party! Although it was so windy you had great time and we also enjoyed with you. Thank you for choosing us!
