Santorini Wedding & Reception Venues
Santorini is famous for the breathtaking views and these are offered in all the wedding venues offered below. Santorini's wedding venues are like no other you have seen and that is what makes this island so unique!
I am presenting you below a list of different style wedding venues to choose the one it expresses you more. The cost of the venues is not included in the wedding packages and the cost depends on the number of guests you will have at your wedding. Please note that the decorations, chairs etc on the presentations below are not included in the cost of the venues and they are available upon request. You can also keep your ceremony at the hotel you will be staying but you will have to ask their permission first.
After your wedding ceremony, you will need a reception venue to host your party. Just the 2 of you or a group of guests, from traditional to luxury, whatever you have in mind, you will find it below among the reception venues I have listed. There is a solution for any taste and any size of a wedding. Even if it is the 2 of you, you can choose a restaurant from below and I will be happy to book you a table.
Please note that the Caldera side reception venues stop the music by 11 am and you need to end your event the latest by midnight. On the other side of the island, there is more flexibility.
Of course there are more wedding ceremony & reception venues in Santorini than the ones listed below but I am listing only the ones that I personally approve, trust and work with many years now!
