Best wedding venues in Santorini

The caldera

Santorini’s famous caldera isn’t just one of the best holiday spots on the island – it’s also a top wedding venue, mostly because the views out to sea are unrivalled. The caldera is speckled with everything from wineries to hotels and restaurants, all of which are available for a wedding.

Black sand beaches

Santorini’s iconic black sand beaches make for an incredible wedding venue, not least because they’re a little off-the-beaten path. Among the most popular are the beaches in Perissa and Kamari, though Cape Columbo is more isolated and quiet.

At your hotel

Many of the hotels in Santorini are of the traditional whitewashed variety, so if you want your photos to have that classic Greek look, this could be a simple yet elegant option.
