Santorini- St Irene & Pygros September 2018

Hi everyone! 

Im getting married next year and in a bid to spend less on a planner and more on fun things like fireworks I'm hoping to do some of the planning myself. The wedding planner has booked the date for us and will sort the celebrant ect but will have to look at organising some other things myself! 

Has anyone been to St Irene that could tell me if there is a sound system available? I want to play a track when I walk down the isle!

Can anyone reccomend a company to assist me with chairs for the ceremony and decorations for the isle? 

Can anyone recommend a wedding photographer that takes nice natural shots, I don't like all the posed ones :) 

Finally I need to find a company that can offer transport between venues for my guests and I. Thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer me!



  • Hi there

    Congratulations! We are getting married in Satorini next year too. I have done the same as you i have booked a wedding planner to book the ceremony and organise the legal side of things and hoping to do the rest myself. I spoke with my wedding planner about transport for guests he quoted me 350 euros for one way but I haven't looked into it further yet. I have booked Eva Rendl I am planning to take decorations over with me and luckily one of our guests is an event planner so she is going to decorate the venue for me. Let me know if I can help with anything else :)

    I am getting married in santorini in May and have a wedding planner. 

    I have 2 mini buses which will collect my guests from their hotels and drop them to the ceremony which is costing me 230e. Google santorini minibus and email a few to get quotes. I have 44 guests and needed 2 mini buses as they are staying on two different sides of the island

    Hi all


    We are also hoping to get married in Santorini next year (2018). I am still waiting to hear from my guests but if we need to we will just get married there anyway, just the two of us.

    Could you recommend wedding planners - I need some assistance with the paperwork.


    Thanks xxx

    We have booked a wedding coordinator for the day so we can organise everything our self, she has helped out with lots of things and we haven't paid much.

    For flowers/decoration/rentals the following 2 companies are amazing and Bettys Flowers are great for flowers also:

    We ended up booking Vangelis who I adore, I also looked at Nathan Wyatt whose shots seemed to be very natural. They are not cheap but for us this is one thing we wanted to spend money on as we love photos. There are many photographers on the island so you won't struggle to find the perfect one :)

    We are using Ever After Days Transfers, best quote we received (80 euros for 24 people for 20 min drive), we read recommendations from other brides and they were really quick to get back to us.
