This charming island is entirely made of volcanic lava, formed in the 17th century B. C. after a big eruption and is situated in the southern Aegean Sea, about 200 km southeast of Greece’s mainland. It has a charming landscape and beautiful beaches, with sand and pebbles in black, red and white, offering stunning backdrops for your wedding photos.
One of the main reasons you should consider Santorini for your big day is the climate. With about 330 sunny days per year, you don’t need to worry if the weather could ruin the celebration. The warm, dry period starts in April and lasts until October which is the ideal time for your fairytale wedding.
Santorini has breathtaking venues and fantastic wedding planners who will help you organise your special day. You can tie the knot on the beach and celebrate with style in one of the gorgeous balconies, with sweeping views of the sea and volcanic islands. There are plenty of stylish restaurants, hotels, beach bars, wineries and villas with fantastic outdoor spaces which are ideal for weddings. We love the luxurious Santorini Princess Hotel with a spacious open-air lounge above the pool and glamorous La Maltese estate villa which also offers great accommodation if you want to spend your honeymoon in Santorini.
