    Congratulations! Santorini is a perfect place for your wedding!I always dreamed of it and thankfully my husband accepted getting married there!

    We used Gold-Weddings Santorini a local company with great experience.They are in the field 28 years now so they must be considered LEADERS.Their prices are very reasonnable too.

    Ru thinking of a beach wedding or a caldera view wedding like we did?


  • fabiennefabienne Posts: 28

    I haven't decided yet.We definitely want to a caldera view hotel though! Thanks a lot I will contact them and let you know!

    Have a great Sunday! x

    We've chosen Santorini as our destination for a small wedding with a party of 8 people.. I'm a little lost as can't seem to find the average cost of a wedding there...

    Can anyone give me an idea of the cost for a simple service with a small number of guests?

    Thanks in advance.

    I believe you shouldn't pay more than 3500 for a ceremony & party for 8 people.We had 18 guests so we paid a little bit more!

    In 2013 i go married in Santorini and it can be as cheap or expensive as you want to be. We booked a table for 9 people in Megalohori and it worked out about 35 euros per person.

    I am also an International wedding photographer and my most popular destination for weddings is Santorini! 

    Based in the UK, I DO NOT charge for travel to get out there as I am 9 times out of 10 already on the island. For striking wedding photography for you to cherish and relive the memories of your wedding day, contact me.

    Hi Nicole, I have booked Le ciel for May 2017. I was wondering if you could recommend any hotels in Fira or Imerovgli ranging from budget to luxury. 

    I am am looking to arrange it all myself without a wedding planner as my job is an events planner. I'm trying to get grips with legal side if anyone can help?


    thank you

    I had my wedding in Santorini on June 2nd and I just came back home! It was a wonderful experience ,we all enjoyed it so much!We arrived a couple of days in advance ,had a meeting with Alexandra from Gold-Weddings Santorini checking on the venues and last details-everything was very well organised, so had nothing to worry about!

    On  our  wedding day the photographer came to our hotel for a  bride- preparation  shooting and stayed all day long.He did a great job and now we have sooo many photos to choose from.

    We had ceremony at Santo Winery  and then reception at Ampelos restaurant in Fira. The Winery has amazing views of the caldera and the whole island and Ampelos delicious  local dishes.

    Congratulations to you all !

    I am going to santorini in sept to look at possible wedding venues. I am wanting something with beautiful views that might be suitable for between 15-30 guests and ideally private. Any recommendations? Also could I ask those that have already wed are there any options for free bar for guests and if so did you use or would you recommend? I am so excited and it's great to see so many happy brides who have already wed there! Xx 

  • annabel6annabel6 Posts: 13

    We visited St.Irini Chapel,Dana Villas,Theros Beach bar but decided on Santo Wines winery! They were all suitable for the number of guests you reffer.

    Can't help you with free bar! Our menu included wine in the price!

  • Mrs..C..2beMrs..C..2be Posts: 318 New bride

    Thank you Annabel.  I know someone else who got married at a winery, I cant remember the name but it sounded beautiful. Something abit different too. Did you just have reception there or get wed there too? x

  • annabel6annabel6 Posts: 13

    No just the ceremony.Our reception  took place at Ampelos restaurant in Fira

  • nicole18nicole18 Posts: 163 New bride

    We chose Ampelos as reception too! Unfortunately Santo  Winery was already booked..

  • Mrs..C..2beMrs..C..2be Posts: 318 New bride

  • annabel6annabel6 Posts: 13

    Good morning to you all,

    I just got engaged and looking for a  wedding in Santorini.As we(my fiance and I) are both from Cyprus it would be a very good choice, because the majority of our relatives would be able to attend.Which venue did you choose?Where did you stay(looking for something affordable at least for my guests)? Did you have a bachelor party before? Are there many activities for our guests on the island?Sorry for my questions...

  • debiedebie Posts: 13


    I got married last year  in Dana Villas having reception at Pyrgos restaurant(caldera views but not on the caldera cliffs).My planner Alexandra(from Gold-Weddings Santorini) was great and  I highly recommend her.I had yellow,white and green flowers.Our guests stayed in different areas, as some wanted caldera view while some others wanted to stay close to the beach.

    Santorini is a wonderful place to have your wedding and has got many activities for your guests also.

    Good luck with your planning!
