What comes to mind when you think of Greece…mythology and history? Olive oil and feta cheese? The birthplace of the Olympics? For a wedding, it is a perfect combination of water and rock, one side of the country is on the sea, the other, 80% in fact, is covered in mountain ranges. As destinations go, Greece weddings are near the very top of the list for something sunny, Mediterranean, and simply gorgeous, as these 6 weddings will show you.
Jo and Dan in Greece, Greece weddings
Let’s begin with one of the most romantic runaways a couple could wish for, eloping on the shores of Greece, a wedding shoot by the water, dinner looking at the sea, all with just you and your partner…….and the photographer. Jo and Dan headed from Australia to Greece to have the wedding they truly wanted, and can I say it’s so refreshing to see a groom in a light colored suit these days!
Lily and Victor in Crete, Greece weddings
On the island of Crete is a gorgeous medieval castle; this is where Lily and Victor were married in a secluded private ceremony. These images could be straight out of a fairytale picture book, the location, the dress, and check out the bouquet, such a simple way to eliminate the need for fresh flowers, but its subtle and soft and completely compliments the rest of the wedding.
Kengo and Asato in Santorini, Greece Weddings
If you can’ t get enough of your wedding shoot, why stop there? Kengo and Asato were honeymooning in Santorini and decided to have a honeymoon photo shoot. It’s playful and fun, and of course everything you’d expect from the glorious Santorini.
Mariela and Adam in Santorini, Greece weddings
Still on the white beaches of the most famous towns in Greece, Mariela and Adam brought back the Santorini tradition by marrying beside the pool, under a blue sky and being surrounded by friends and family. Let lavender reign!
John and Helen in Athens, Greece weddings
The beauty of this Greek Orthodox wedding in the nation’s capital is breathtaking. John and Helen had a traditional service then headed out to a countryside hall to celebrate with cake and champagne and of course, some wonderful Greek dancing.
Irina and Vadim in Santorini, Greece weddings
The sun shone brightly over Santorini, but not as bright as these two’s smiles! Irina and Vadim snapped up one of the most popular venues on the island for their small wedding. There are some great cliff top shots here, not to mention the pre-wedding shots in the villa, gorgeous.
And so, Greece is what we’ve always suspected, an oasis of sand and water, clear skies and romantic scenery for anyone looking or a destination wedding, large or small. Until next time, and the next wedding… xoxo La Bride
