The long, unspoiled beaches, tiny, exquisite chapels, breath-taking views, gorgeous sunsets, and luxurious villas are among just some of the reasons why more and more couples are choosing to get married in Greece.

If you’re looking for an unforgettable destination wedding, Greece has a selection of perfect backdrops for your nuptials. And with so many different, yet uniquely stunning islands to choose from, there’s no end of options to consider. Whether you want a traditional church wedding, a tropical beach wedding, or a destination wedding turned vacation of a lifetime for you and your guests, Greece has it all.

Here’s a list of some of the most popular islands in Greece for getting married.

With beautiful sunsets and dramatic landscapes, it should come as no surprise that Santorini is often considered to be one of the most romantic destinations in the world. The variety of expert wedding planners, stunning venue options and breath-taking views make it an ideal choice for a wedding that nobody’s ever going to forget. You can have a civil ceremony at a hotel or a famous winery, or opt for a traditional Greek wedding complete with donkeys and local musicians. And with some of the most incredible honeymoon suites in the world, there’s no need to travel further for your honeymoon.

Delightful weather, beautiful landscapes and charming chapels make Rhodes an ideal wedding destination. It’s especially perfect if you’re hoping for a church wedding or even a traditional Greek wedding. The small church above Lindos Bay is one of the most popular venues for weddings here, thanks to its stunning view of the sea and the Acropolis. Or if you prefer an outdoor wedding, head to the gorgeous Springs of Kallithea.

This large, beautiful island provides a huge array of options for a gorgeous, unforgettable wedding. You can opt for a traditional chapel, or arrange an outdoor wedding on a stunning beach or charming garden. Assos, Skala, Fiscardo, and Lourdas are some of the best areas for getting married on this island. Another popular venue option for a unique wedding is the Lighthouse of Argostoli, especially if you want to ensure some fantastic wedding photos. After tying the knot, you can arrange a photo tour around the island - you’ll never be able to pick just one favorite from your wedding album.

Over the past few years, the island of Skopelos has become an increasingly popular choice of destination among couples looking to tie the knot. You may already be familiar with this island if you’ve watched the movie Mamma Mia (2008), which helped bring the island even more fame as a wedding destination. The beautiful, quaint beauty of the chapel of Agios Ioannis Kastri makes it one of the most popular wedding venues on the island, but you can choose to have more relaxed nuptials on one of the many beaches, or even by the poolside at a villa or hotel. Hold your wedding reception at one of the many excellent restaurants or traditional taverns.

The most cosmopolitan of the Greek islands, Mykonos is also one of the most popular choices for a wedding destination. Most weddings held here will take place either on one of the beautiful beaches, or in a traditional Cycladic chapel, but you can choose from a variety of other options including impressive privately chartered boat weddings. The famous, stunning architecture and unspoiled beaches provide the perfect backdrop for a stunning wedding. And the selection of villas is perfect for guests. If you’re planning a wedding in Mykonos, check out the Blue Villas Collection. This option in Mykonos has everything that you and your guests need for a perfect stay, with large, fully-equipped villas complete with infinity pools, honeymoon suites, various catering options, and more.

It’s impossible to deny the Venetian charm of the island of Corfu. Not only is it a popular European sun vacation option, but it’s also an ideal place to tie the knot. The Town Hall; a gorgeous 19th-century building originally home to an elegant opera theatre, is one of the most popular venues for getting married in Corfu. Whichever venue you choose, the selection of wedding services you can take advantage of on the island is impressive.

Many couples arrive at their wedding ceremony on horse-drawn carriages, or you can choose to walk through the delightful cobbled streets surrounded by local musicians if you really want to make an entrance. After the ceremony, you can get all the wedding photos you’d wished for and more with a private photo tour of the island, covering all the famous places like Paleokastritsa, Listen Avenue, Corfu Town, the Old Fortress and more.

If you’re looking for the perfect destination for your wedding, look no further than the Greek islands! With their stunning churches and chapels, gorgeous landscapes, excellent accommodation, and beautiful beaches, any of these islands is the ideal setting for a perfect wedding.
