1. For Its Incomparable View That Is Perfect For A Next Day Shooting – A Must-Do In A Destination Wedding In Santorini


Every Greek island has its own beauty. However, Santorini is known for its majestic view which can work perfectly for a special background in your photoshoots. Most of the island is composed of little island houses dressed in blue and white, which occupy most of the space and create a phantasmagorical traditional scenery. This is a trademark of the Greek tradition, as the houses’ colors represent Greece’s
flag colors. That way, any photoshoot that occurs in this island has always something Greek in the background.


Moreover, Santorini is widely known for its remarkable sunset, a golden spectacle that will be imprinted in your mind and soul for the rest of your days. We think it is an absolutely fantastic idea to arrange your next day shooting at a place and time where this miraculous sunset can be seen. It will help you create everlasting images.

2. For The Activities You Can Do Before Or After Your Destination Wedding In Santorini


However, the view does not end in the mountains, the sea and orange painted sky. On the contrary, Santorini is famous for its volcano, which is said to provide the island with a different kind of energy. So, one of the things you really need to do once there, is to visit the volcano and feel its magic energy – it really worth it.


There are plenty of activities you can do before or after your destination wedding in Santorini. Whether you are having a wedding, an elopement or a honeymoon, there are plenty of activities you can try. You can start with a tour of the island with the donkeys, which is one of the traditions of Santorini and, why not, have a photoshoot on them.

 

Furthermore, you can go scuba diving in the blue and green waters and embrace nature, surrounded by fish and golden sand. Another idea is to have a tour with a yacht around the island, a very luxurious excursion that will really help you relax and enjoy the island.


And of course, swimming! Do not forget to dive in the crystal-clear waters of this magnificent island. You can visit Perivolos Beach, Vlihada Beach, as well as Monolithos Beach, all famous for their beauty and magnificent view.
