Santorini, Greece___________________________________________Destination Engagement

Destination Indian Wedding | Santorini, Greece.

We have traveled to so many wonderful locations to photograph Indian Weddings. By far, Santorini Greece is one of my favorite locations to photograph. I researched some of the properties that can accomodate Indian weddings and all the events that go into making the event a success. I considered three main factors when building this list of the best wedding venues in Santorini, Greece. Let’s start with the endless views of the Aegean Sea and the city of Santorini for photography, the guest experience and lastly the guest capacity.


Rocabella Hotel is a stunning example of Cycladic architecture. Located on a cliffside close to Imerovigli village with stunning views over the Aegean Sea, Rocabella offers three beautiful outdoor areas to host wedding ceremonies and receptions, as well as accommodation options for you and your guests. Starting from the hotel’s highest level, the Infinity Kiosk can host weddings with up to 50 seated dining guests. For bigger wedding parties, there are the options to host the reception next to one of their two pools. The Infinity Pool can be found in the lowest part of the hotel, and it’s a popular choice for both wedding ceremonies and receptions with up to 100 seated guests. Finally, the third option is the Exclusive Pool, which will please the most demanding clientele looking for a luxurious wedding reception. Located in the middle level and offering sweeping caldera views, the Exclusive Pool is surrounded by seven traditional island-style houses, which are included in the rental fees for a 3-night stay. Food and beverages are offered by Rocabella.

Cavo Ventus is a luxurious villa built around a 200-year old stone windmill, sitting at the very edge of the caldera cliff of Akrotiri and offering sweeping views of the Aegean Sea and the volcano. Hosting a wedding at Cavo Ventus Santorini not only provides an amazing location for an outdoor ceremony and alfresco dinner on its fabulous terrace, but it also offers privacy and the convenience for the couple to stay at the villa and get prepared for their big day there. The indoors of the villa are equally gorgeous with warm-colored walls and big windows generously providing natural light and minimalist interior design, typical of Santorini. In case the villa is booked for a minimum of two nights, a wedding event can be hosted with no extra charge. However, even if accommodation is already arranged, the villa’s outdoor spaces can be booked as a wedding venue only with an event fee. This breathtaking venue can host a wedding for 130 guests maximum in its 3 different areas and allows you to enjoy the reception party until late, as the music stops at 2.00am. Finally, Cavo Ventus offers its own private bar with different open bar options, while for the dinner, you will be able to choose a catering company.

Santorini Gem was originally a private villa with a fantastic pool and a lush garden encompassing it, which has now become one of the top Santorini wedding venues. Located on the cliffside of Pyrgos village, it offers exquisite views of the volcano and the Aegean sea. Wedding ceremonies are taking place in the wedding terrace with up to 160 seated guests. The beautiful classical villa is available for the bridal preparation, while the villa is also available for the night of the wedding upon request. For wedding receptions, there is an indoor area surrounded by floor to ceiling windows, thus having no obstacle between you and the majestic view, while there is also the outdoor poolside area available. Food and beverages are provided by the venue with many delicious Greek cuisine dishes.

One of the most popular Santorini wedding venues, Le Ciel is a restaurant located in Imerovigli, just steps away from Rocabella Resort & Spa. It combines a private open-air terrace with breathtaking views for the ceremony, which can host up to 80 people seated, as well as an air-conditioned indoor area for the reception for up to 120 seated guests. The venue provides delicious menus with distinctive Greek aroma, having the options of a seated menu for up to 60 guests or a buffet menu for a guest list of more than 60 people, as well as a great variety of ceremony and reception drinks packages, which are mandatory for all guests.

La Maltese Estate & Buddha-Bar Santorini Located in the heart of Imerovigli village and just a few steps from the stunning blue-domed Anastasi church, La Maltese Estate is a 5-star boutique hotel with Buddha-Bar Beach Santorini, which operates as a restaurant and sunset lounge bar, in its premises. Wedding ceremonies are taking place at the La Maltese Upper Terrace with up to 120 guests, while the exclusive hire of Buddha Bar is required for receptions. Accommodation is offered at La Maltese Estate, but the venue’s strategic location and proximity to many Imerovigli hotels within walking distance, makes it also an ideal choice for couples looking to book accommodation for them or their guests nearby.

Venetsanos family built this exquisite winery back in 1947, which became the first industrial winery on the island. Located on the cliffside of Megalochori, Venetsanos Winery does not only have the Aegean Sea on the background but also offers one of the most beautiful sunsets, you will witness. We particularly love the earthy colors blending in harmony with the volcanic rocks of Santorini. Weddings are hosted on the Upper Terrace (250sq meters) for wedding ceremonies and reception, with up to 120 guests. There is a great variety of drinks offered, but for the food, an external catering company must be booked. What makes this terrace so special is that is open from every corner offering an expansive view with no obstacle on the way.

Santo Wines was founded in 1947 as a union of Santorini vine cultivators to guarantee the best result and quality of their wine production. The winery headquarters is found on a fantastic location on the cliffside of Pyrgos village, while the Ceremony Terrace, which is close to the main winery facilities, has managed to offer stunning caldera and sunset views and privacy. Santo Wines is an excellent option for weddings with up to 120 guests. For receptions, a private indoor area is available, but food needs to be arranged with an external catering company.

Fanari Villas If you set your heart to the village of Oia for an intimate wedding, one of the most picturesque venues is Fanari Villas. There is a total of 19 suites available, but wedding ceremonies and dinners are taking place on the terraces of 4 of the suites, which are right under a windmill, creating a breathtaking scenery for any couple’s special day. In order to host a wedding there, the 4 Suites (2 Superior & 2 Junior Suites) need to be booked for at least one night, and they can be used on their wedding day for accommodation or refreshing. Food and drinks are provided by the Fanari Restaurant located in the hotel’s premises.
