Weddings in Greece: Our top 4 destinations for 2022 couples!
Every wedding is a special occasion, bringing together two people and their closest friends and family, so what better way to celebrate the occasion than in an equally special location. When it comes to booking a wedding abroad, there are plenty of spots to choose from, but here at SPL Villas, we believe Greece is one of the best places to tie the knot. Fantastic food, a warm and welcoming culture and brilliant weather to boot, Greece can be the perfect backdrop to your big day.
Planning your romantic holiday in Greece
Whether you need a villa before or after the ceremony, you can find a wide selection of residences to suit any need on our website. Whether it's for families, large groups, or celebrating your honeymoon in style, we've put together some of our favourite destinations in Greece to share your vows.
Mykonos weddings - an Aegean affair
With a reputation for being a party island, there are large parts of Mykonos (and times of the year, even) that will make you question how that impression ever stuck. Slightly off-grid but still easily accessible, Mykonos is one of the many Greek islands that lie off the mainland floating in the Aegean Sea. With the iconic whitewashed buildings and narrow alleyways juxtaposed against the modern restaurants and amenities, it's easy to see why Mykonos has become such a fashionable destination for visitors from around the world.
We have villas dotted around this fantastic island which means you won't have far to travel no matter where you choose to get married in Mykonos.
From small and intimate, to the BIG Greek wedding, Crete has it all
The largest of all the Greek islands, Crete has lots in store for anyone visiting it. With a combination of bustling towns, rural hideaways and glorious coastline, Crete has something for everyone. If you're looking for great food at your wedding, Crete is probably one of the best places, with a long list of top-notch restaurants offering food made from fresh produce grown on the island. According to Greek Mythology, it's here that King Minos built the Labyrinth, but honestly, we couldn't think of a better place to get lost.
Many of our Cretan villas come with sea views, which is undoubtedly the perfect way to celebrate your first days as a married couple when combined with a warm sun above you.
Tying the knot in Zakynthos
Another Greek island with its own distinct feel and atmosphere, Zakynthos is a perfect spot for those intimate breaks where it's possible to find a private getaway. If this sounds like something you might tire of, you're only ever a short distance from the daily hubbub and the vibrant nightlife of the capital, the island's eponymous Zakynthos town. You can find clear blue waters and white sandy beaches but also hillside villages offering views across the entire island, making Zakynthos one of Greece's most picturesque locations for your wedding.
With all our villas in Zakynthos coming with your own private pool, if you're looking for a quiet getaway, you might never have to leave your villa, but if you're keen to get out and explore, our villas are the perfect place to return to after a day of making the most of this island.
Beautiful views in all directions, Santorini peaks out of the blue sea on the back of an ancient volcanic backdrop that some have blamed the myth of Atlantis on. Far from sinking below the waves, Santorini is well known for its iconic and distinctive whitewashed buildings and the deep blue of the surrounding sea. When thinking of wedding photos, it doesn't get much better than Santorini, and by the time the honeymoon is over, you'll already be planning your next trip back.
With the option of traditional houses or more modern buildings, you're really spoilt for choice when it comes to booking villas in Santorini.
