Weddings on Santorini

Santorini is one of the most popular wedding destinations in Greece, thanks to its spectacular setting, its dramatic caldera, startling volcanic beaches in black and other colours, and not least its wealth of chic hotels offering perfect honeymoon destinations, all go to make this one of the top wedding spots in Greece.

To organize a wedding in Santorini you can either check websites of hotels on Santorini, as many of them offer wedding and honeymoon packages, or contact a specialist wedding tour operator such as Ionian Weddings or Planet Holidays in the UK.

If you live in the USA and want to plan a Greek wedding, you might find it easier to do it through a UK tour operator as there are many more such companies specializing in arranging Greek weddings.

There are also many Santorini-based companies which will help you plan your wedding and/or honeymoon, including Kivotos Santorini Wedding Consultants and Weddings Santorini.
