3 distinctively ideal locations for your own big Greek wedding

Nowadays, the choices for a wedding venue and/or for the party that will follow the marriage are limitless, and as such, the definition of what is romantic and what connects to our minds as dreamy and unique is not standard any more. And this is thrilling, I believe, since planning for a wedding never was more creative and boundless as today. Thus, let's explore together three possible, equally attractive, locations within their very own context, distinctly included in the broader context of Greece.

The Santorinian case of winemaking and 3 world-class local wineries

Santorini is famous for dozens of reasons, but mostly about its amazing views over the volcano & the Caldera, its breathtaking sunsets and its uniquely romantic spots all over the island, turning it into a global nest for couples and lovers. However, what is gaining great attention over the last few decades is the rapidly developing industry of winemaking from the locals, whose fame has already exceeded the Greek borders, winning prestigious awards for their world-class wines. The case of Santorini, though, is special, as the volcanic tuff of the island prevented the phylloxera from affecting the vineyards over the years. Nowadays, the Santorinian wineries are included between the most prominent wine producers worldwide, with Assyrtiko comprising the signature variety alongside with Aidani, Mandilaria, Mavrotragano and Athiri.

Cycladic customs during Christmas

Either you are a true believer or not, Christmas is a period of time brimming with symbolisms and images. There is no place you will find on earth where people do not experience, in a way, the energy and vibes flowing from this wonderful celebration of Christianity. What is more interesting through Christmas period though, is these special, unique rituals that small communities retain and cultivate over the years, filled with symbolic gestures, representations of the past and special recipes. The island group of Cyclades comprises exactly such communities where because of their massive touristic activity during the summer months, they are not usually referred for their rich, and weird, Christmas customs.

Christmas Holidays in the Seychelles

Looking for the perfect Christmas holiday destination? Well, Seychelles is the perfect place to visit, especially with their lush, tropical appearance and year round sunshine. The 118 Seychelles Islands are located slightly on the southern side of the equator but only a few of them are inhabited. The islands are not all about sunshine though, since they do receive generous rainfalls all year round, that helps keep the area green and attractive.

Honeymoon at Elounda

There are specific occasions during a couple's life together that when remembered, should be accompanied with emotions brimming with joy, exuberance and nostalgia; the first kiss, the first (unofficial) anniversary, the first trip, the wedding, the honeymoon, the birth of a child. Most of these moments can be relived again and again and they can be more exhilarating than the first time. A few of them though, are supposed to be a once in a lifetime experience.

A new location for romance and luxury in Santorini!

Most people will tell you that Oia, the small town on the northern promontory of the island, is the most romantic place on Santorini. Truly, with its majestic view of the sunset, people -and especially couples- flock in Oia to watch the sunset and capture photo moments of them at the time the sun “dives” into the sea. Oia is packed with luxurious boutique hotels and rooms, most maintaining the traditional architecture, with all its beautiful aesthetics, but also low ceilings, small spaces and few windows! Looking at all the romantic accommodation options we found the ideal place to enjoy all the pampering of an exclusive boutique hotel, with the much needed privacy for a couple and with breathtaking views to the caldera and sunset!

Authentic Romance in the Aegean Blue

The “Just Married” sign is still on the car, and you’re in a whirlwind of emotions and fresh memories from the biggest day of your life: your wedding. With your luggage almost packed you and your newly spouse head to the ultimate trip you’ll take as a couple, your honeymoon. Hopefully the most memorable first moments as husband and wife (or wife & wife, or husband & husband) will be the ones to cherish and remember when and if, the going gets tough. That’s why you should go to some place that you’ll relax, experience together something new and have some alone time with your other half.
