Can you imagine anything more romantic than a wedding in Santorini? Deep blue waters, white-washed houses, dramatic sceneries overlooking the volcano and the caldera, the sun setting directly to the Aegean Sea bathing the whole landscape in shades of blue, purple, red and yellow and you and your loved ones sharing your very special moments in awe. The essence of romance, the picturesque villages, the crimson sunsets, create such an idyllic atmosphere, which can make a wedding in Santorini unforgettable.
One of the most well-known and cosmopolitan islands of Greece, Mykonos is the ideal destination for you to have a spectacular and glamorous wedding.

One of the most popular and authentic spots throughout the Greek Islands are the Mykonos’ Windmills, from where you can enjoy amazing views of the Little Venice bay.
Are you a history lover? Then Rhodes is the island for your wedding! Travel back in time in the medieval citadel of Rhodes, in an era where the Knights of St. John were in charge or come across one of the seven wonders of antiquity, the Colossus-a statue of Helios (sun). Stunning natural scenery with pine trees and cypress forests spread across the island, beautiful golden sandy beaches with azure blue waters and exquisite architecture await you, creating a unique atmosphere for such a unique event. Romance is spread throughout the island from the beaming sunsets to the valley of the butterflies, that can be found in masses during summer. Truly, one of the best island destinations for weddings in Greece.
If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind location for your wedding then the island of Lesvos is the best choice for you. Exceptional architecture with traditional houses and mansions, long peddled beaches with turquoise waters and a variety of historic and cultural treasures create the best ever wedding location for a destination wedding in Greece. But the most interesting aspect of the island is its natural beauties, with the endless olive groves, the dense pinewoods, the chestnuts and the oak trees and on the other hand the volcanic landscape: dry and barren of trees, with the Fossil Forest standing there for millions of years. It will take your breath away.
Take a stroll down the island’s mountainous landscapes that unfold to the North and the lowlands to the South. Cosmopolitan sandy beaches, pebbled coasts and faraway small bays will satisfy all tastes. Alongside with the primitive beauty of the natural landscape of Chios, comes a product of unique flavor and fragrance, the gum mastic, which is produced by a special type of resin from the mastiha trees. Combine the memories of one of the most important days of your life with the smell of gum mastic and the saltiness of the sea and create a magical event for you to remember.
How about having a ‘Mamma Mia wedding’? The island of Skopelos became worldwide known after the movie ‘Mamma Mia’, but those in the know would tell you that it is a popular choice as a wedding destination prior to the movie. Scopelos embodies the perfect romanticism and the essence of summer combined with dramatic scenery and local traditions and customs.
With its unseen natural beauties, Kefalonia is an island that can fulfill your dream of a unforgettable wedding. Boasting of sandy beaches with deep blue waters and breathtaking landscapes, the island suits to couples that seek stunning scenery in a relaxed atmosphere. Get married in Kefalonia and say ‘i do’ in one of the best beaches that can be found in Greece.
