Explore the top wedding destinations in Greece with Eleni Dona Photography, and let me capture the magic of your special day amidst these stunning landscapes.
As a destination wedding photographer in Greece, I have the privilege of visiting a lot of places and witnessing a lot of weddings. So, let me help you select the best venue for your dream wedding in Greece…
Santorini is one of the most romantic destinations on earth. This mythical Aegean island will take your breath away with its multicolored cliffs and wild volcanic sculptures soaring above a sea-drowned caldera and sleek Cycladic lines.
Mykonos is the island where glamour and entertainment meet simplicity and serenity. I have adored this island since I took my first steps as a destination wedding photographer in Greece. It is not only the best place for the wedding ceremony you have been dreaming of, but also the ideal landscape for a memorable wedding photo session.
Athens, Greece is a place where ancient beauty meets contemporary architectural wonders. The sharp contrast between the old city and its newer additions is inescapable. Well, Athens got its name from Athena, the goddess of war and wisdom, which is a contradiction!
Medieval castles, monasteries perched atop towering rocks, and Byzantine footpaths. Verdant olive groves and charming, traditional villages. The Peloponnese and the Greek mainland are ideal choices for every couple seeking an attention-grabbing background for their wedding photo session. What else do you need for postcard-worthy results? Well, ok, a sprinkle of magic with the camera of a professional wedding photographer in Greece!
Insider tip: As they say, you are going to need something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue; in the Peloponnese and the Greek mainland, you’ll find something truly old, totally vintage and traditional, not only for your special day but also for your wedding photos!
The Aegean Sea lapping an endless coastline. Iconic, sun-bleached ruins that dot the landscape like a historical map. Traditional, old and picturesque neighbourhoods just below the Acropolis hill, which instil a vintage feel, while narrow paved paths and neoclassical buildings add a classic and romantic touch to every photo. The place where ancient beauty meets contemporary architectural wonders. Yes, you are in Athens. And this stunning capital city gives you an excellent opportunity to have a fairy-tale setting for your wedding pictures.
Insider tip: Getting photographed in historical places that offer a backdrop which gives the ultimate Grecian feel is classic choice that never goes outdated!
Multihued volcanic beaches and off-the-beaten-path incredible photo locations waiting to be captured: Welcome to the Cyclades, where a unique pre-wedding or after-wedding photo session can be conducted around scenic coves, blue-domed churches, cobbled streets draped with fuchsia bougainvillea, and stunning sea views that complement perfectly the golden colours of the Greek sunlight; it just doesn’t get more laid-back than that!
Trust me; the Cyclades, these sun-drenched islands of the Mediterranean Sea, could make plenty of places green with envy. Here, you have all the makings of a great wedding photography experience in Greece.
Insider tip: The sea-drowned caldera in Santorini and the wild volcanic sculptures soaring above it always mesmerize all newly-weds and wedding photographers in Greece. This landscape is so breath-taking that I barely managed to put my camera down during my first visit here as a wedding photographer in Greece!
An expert wedding photographer’s services are not limited to few locations of course. I’d be more than challenged and honoured to capture a wedding in a little, pure, off-the-beaten path island if you fancy a totally intimate, boho celebration, or a special event at the top of a mountain if you are an adventurous couple! As a professional wedding photographer in Greece, I can suggest the perfect places for an ideal wedding photo session according to the season, your timeline and the natural light. I’ll be really delighted to share my expertise with you and assist you with your wedding photography plans.
There are lots of couples that have booked their wedding venue just by looking at pictures and reading descriptions. But there are venues that are just more advertised than others, destinations where the natural light is just not enough during the winter months, places that are always overcrowded during the summer months. So, how can you be sure that you’ve made the right choice? Well, it’s like trying to find the best restaurant in a new country that you’re visiting; you just need honest reviews and expert advice. So, ask the experts that are here for you, aka your wedding planner and your wedding photographer in Greece. Knowing a location means that we make the best out of it.
