Greece is an incredibly diverse country with an abundance of fantastic options for where to get married. From popular options like Santorini and Mykonos to the coastal villages of Kalamaria and Leptokarya, Greece has something to offer for every couple. Deciding on Greece for your wedding opens up a Pandora’s box of other questions about what region or town is best suited to host your wedding. My experience as a destination wedding photographer in Greece as well as my time spent traveling through the country has taught me what areas suit couples best. Here’s my advice on where you should get married in Greece.
Destination Wedding in Mykonos
I have such positive memories flood back to me whenever I think of Mykonos. After spending time on some of the more chill islands, ending my first trip to Greece in Mykonos was a great way to close my chapter in that country. I would highly recommend Mykonos for anyone who likes to party. Their welcoming of the LGBT community has fostered a nightlight as good as any big city on the Mediterranean coast. My time as a destination wedding photographer in Greece has not yet brought me to Mykonos for work but I know it’s going to make an incredible location for wedding photos when the time comes. Choose Mykonos for your destination wedding if you like blaring club music until the break of dawn, plentiful beaches, and cobblestone steps.
Destination Wedding in Santorini
Santorini is an what comes to mind when most people imagine Greece. It’s an island I couldn’t imagine would ever disappoint even the hardest to please traveler. No matter how high your expectations are, Santorini will blow you away with its unbelievable views, rugged landscape, and impeccable design. There are only a few places I’ve seen in the world that look more like a painting than real life and Santorini is one of them. Santorini will always be so special to me because it was the first place I had the chance to be a destination wedding photographer in Greece. Choose Santorini for your wedding if you love eggshell white walls, crystal blue water, and the feeling of a peaceful, seaside town.
Destination Wedding in Athens
What’s interesting about Athens is how polarizing people’s opinions are on this ancient city. Before I landed in the largest city in Greece, I’d been told by other travelers about how incredible Athens was and by others about how terrible it was so I had no idea what to expect. I personally love Athens for the feeling I get walking down the vibrant streets. Knowing how much history has happened all around me is almost tangible and the excitement in the city reflects that. What makes Athens so great for a destination wedding photographer in Greece is its proximity to both gorgeous cliffside beaches with ocean views and numerous wineries just outside the city. Go with Athens for your Greece destination wedding if you’re energized by urban areas, can’t get enough history, and love interesting cultures.
