What could be more romantic than exchanging vows whilst watching the sun set against the Aegean Sea? The islands studding the blue Aegean Sea have always attracted those of a romantic cast of mind. Naturally, Santorini has been no exception and now Santorini weddings are really famous. The very starkness of the island suggests primeval and elemental passions. That’s one reason why every evening in late spring and summer, couples from all over the world clamber up to vantage points at Oia to observe the uncanny golden, ochre and purple sunset that bathes the entire scene in shimmering half-light. Such is the fame of this sunset that soon-to-be newlyweds from as far away as China often fly the thousands of miles to Santorini for that special Santorini wedding that they couldn’t hope to have anywhere else. Companies specializing in Santorini weddings offer wonderful and innovative packages to make this special moment truly unforgettable. Why not arrive at your wedding in Santorini accompanied by local musicians? Or on a donkey? Wedding receptions in Santorini can take place in a choice of restaurants offering the best Santorinian food, in wineries or you may choose to combine your wedding and reception in one of Santorini’s designer hotels, while staying in a splendid villa rental.
