Thinking about saying “I do” abroad but you don't know where to start? It’s time to turn those dreams of Greek weddings into a reality.
Greek weddings can be as extravagant or as simple as you choose. Make the decision to have your destination wedding in the beautiful Santorini, where the pond-like waters and majestic island mountains are stretched out before you like a scene from a Greek myth.
Or perhaps you would prefer a straightforward beach wedding with a few chairs and lots of candles spread out on the sand.
Here are some of my top destination wedding venues in Greece, that you don’t want to miss.
