First Impressions

When you step inside, you’ll be greeted by a sight that will leave you speechless – tables adorned with crisp white linen and sparkling glassware. It exudes purity and simplicity, allowing your décor and personal touches to shine. Whether you’re dreaming of a stand-up cocktail style event or an elegant and opulent affair, Santorini Restaurant can be transformed into anything you can imagine. We were a part of a Wedding showcase in July this year at Santorini and chose white, blue and fuchsia as our colour scheme. It looked absolutely fantastic! You can check out the Wedding Showcase here to see our photos and a few other local vendors who attended.


There’s something truly magical about a space flooded with natural light, and Santorini has mastered the art of creating such ambiance. Whether you’re planning an afternoon ceremony bathed in crisp clear light or a dazzling evening soirée under the stars, Santorini’s bright and open space can accommodate any vision you have for your special day. Having a light filled space is particularly important for wedding photography – your pictures will be nothing short of breathtaking with the restaurant’s bright and airy setting as your backdrop. In the evening, the gentle glow of candles and fairy lights adds a touch of romance, making it an ideal setting for both daytime and evening weddings.


Speaking of photos – the restaurant is also in close proximity to New Farm Park where you can settle in amongst the beautiful old fig trees, the stunning rose gardens and let’s not forget the iconic rotunda! It makes the perfect backdrop for your Wedding Day photo’s. In 2024 we will be launching our brand-new Elopement and Micro Wedding packages.
