If you’re a surfer and you’re engaged, look for one of two ways to get married or escape. First, you can say goodbye to the shore and just step in the water, or you can plan a boho-chic surfer wedding – no towels required. Either way, it’s safe to say that you are way cooler than us. Today we’re delving into the latter option, with a radical surfboard backdrop and a pampas grass wedding dress – keep scrolling for THIS gem.
Inspired by all of the laid-back goodness that a surfer elopement is, Tie the Knot Santorini designed the day with a color palette that reflected the natural landscape. Sandy beige tones and daring black tones, like the shadow of a rock wall in front of a dreamy beach in Greece. Beige + black goes perfectly with wood and rattan details that showed up later in the day!
Let’s take a look at all of the magical moments that Chris & Ruth captured!
Black + beige surfboard wedding background
If you’ve checked out Tie the Knot Santorini’s features on GWS, you know that pampas grass is the STANDARD – and these guys do it well, thanks in part to the genius that Betty Flowers Santorini is. What floral pattern goes better with a vibey surf couple than loads of feathers ?!
Quick moment of appreciation for this radical Immaclé dress !!
Scenes from a boho-chic surfer wedding ceremony
Zenia + Dimitris firstly have the coolest names and secondly they are a real couple. Z + D are surfers who live on Santorini. You were thrilled to play the role of groom + bride!
Please understand that we are obsessed with the black painted pampas.

OH. If this doesn’t make your heart beat faster … then what ?! The romantic dinner was brought to life under a curtain of fairy lights and chandeliers made of seashells!
We’ll stop our beach picnics that way in the future, please. Stunning pieces from Weddings & Whimsy!
A dress made of pampas grass
What did you expect? Did you expect it to be that good ?!
Here is a creative leap from the team and Madebride that has paid off in full! Hundreds of intricately placed pieces of pampa grass formed the skirt for the dress with a silhouette that is really beautiful. Zenia’s hair + makeup by Morgan Belleville and Renia Bledaki were quickly swapped to complement the new look!
Still not over it !!
Dinner after dark
Wow, what a view! Magical lighting for events in Santorini makes it easy.
Something like magic, don’t you think? Thanks to the team behind the tag for sending us boho chic surfer wedding vibes!
