Proud to be parents, Esha Deol (MTV Roadies) & Bharat wanted to capture beautiful memories, so that they could share with their child in later years. Though they had been travelling all across as a couple, Esha wanted to go to a new place for the Baby-Moon, as it was very special. It also brings in a lot of positivity and energy for the couples. Since the couple loved the sand & sea, their friends recommended them to visit the Mediterranean islands in Greece, often called as the cradle of western civilization. They shortlisted Santorini island in the Aegean Sea, known for its beauty and astonishing architecture.
Keeping nothing to chance Esha researched every detail of her Maternity photo-shoot right from the healthcare, clothes, to the locations, as well as a local Baby moon photographer Dimitris Psillakis. They zeroed in the village of Oia in the resort island paradise Santorini with scenic vista, known for its beautiful sunset all over the world. But since it would be crowded, Dmitris suggested to capture the pre natal photo-shoot moments in early morn as the light would be the best.
Esha did her own make up, and looked quite a haute stepper and ‘Babymoon’ chic, when she stepped out in a timeless resplendent white Grecian dress & floral wreath, associated with Greek attire and celebrations! Bharat helped her in all details and gamely poised for the photo-shoot too.
Though Esha & Bharat would have liked to go to Athens & The Acropolis, it would be difficult to navigate the steep climb of the hills in her conditions, so they opted out. But Esha was pleased in her own ‘Fairyland’ as she described Santorini, with its white washed homes and Cycladic architecture characterized by simplicity and grace!
Esha also shared an incident on how she missed Indian cuisine, as she has a South Indian taste bud and found the local food, a bit bland. And when she was ravenously hungry and wanted spicy food late one night, they walked around and stumbled upon a quaint cafe. The chef was very understanding of her situation, and dumped in all his masala into the spaghetti, which Esha found to be finger licking good and the best meal she had in Greece. And to top it with Greek hospitality, the chef gave her free desserts, Crème Brulee & chocolate Mousse, that gave her baby-moon the sweetest.
