But, if we were to number the five most important reasons why you should have your destination wedding in Santorini, then we would choose the following:

1. A must-do at a destination wedding in Santorini for its incomparable view that is ideal for a next day shooting.

Every Greek island has a beauty of its own. Santorini, however, is known for its magnificent view, which in your photoshoots will work perfectly for a special backdrop. Most of the island consists of tiny island dwellings, dressed in blue and white, which occupy most of the space and create a phantasmagorical traditional scenery. This is a trademark of Greek culture, as the colours of the houses reflect the colours of Greece.

In addition, Santorini is well renowned for its remarkable sunset, a golden spectacle that for the rest of your days will be imprinted on your mind and soul. We think it’s an absolutely brilliant idea to schedule your next shooting day at a time and place where you can see this miraculous sunset. It will help you create images that are everlasting.
