I have been in Crete 2 years ago, and I have never forgotten these landscapes. This gorgeous island will easily lure you with its long coastline and the azure waters of the Meditteranean. It is actually one of the largest islands which makes you want to explore deeper and go beyond the obvious beaches. There is a lovely rustic side filled with vineyards and farms that make getting married in Greece a beautiful and remarkable experience. There are also so many wonderful chapels to unify your love in a heartwarming ceremony. One of such venues is the Agreco Farm. A fairytale venue that will transform your destination wedding in Crete into magic. This is one of the most cinematic destination for an amazing wedding film in Greece.
• SOUTH PELOPONNESE
As a destination wedding videographer in Greece, this is one of my favorite locations. There are a plethora of sceneries for perfect cinematic portrayals which makes this part of the island absolutely dreamy. A place where castles, fortresses, mountains, medieval, sand, sea, urban, and luxury - all blend together to provide the most exquisite affair. Plus, many greek mythical heroes lived here and that fact alone elevates everything. Wedding venues to consider: the Romanos Resort, Eumelia Organic Farm, Kinsterna Hotel, Godai Seascape, and many more.
If you are planning a beach destination wedding in Greece, there is no island finer than Zakynthos. Even though it is popular for various tourists, there are so many undiscovered hidden gems that you will get the pleasure to see. There even are wedding venues that are nestled on the private islands around Zakynthos like the Cameo Island. Imagine having a whole island for your iconic ceremony, a movie-worthy romantic story to cherish forever. If your heart is set on having a white sand beach ceremony, then I would definitely recommend a stylish bar like Casa Playa Beach.
This is the dream of any destination wedding videographer in Greece. The portrayal of the contemporary style, romantic beauty, and old-world ruins. Athens is a cradle of culture and heritage, a center where every timeline collides. Not only is this city awe-inspiring but has a medley of venues and vendors wherever you turn. Based on my experience, I would recommend these event places: Golf Prive, KTIMA 48, Kleopatra, Skyfall - which has the most magical background with the Acropolis for your evening reception!

Tips & Advantages for a destination wedding in Greece
for US & UK citizens
As far as legalities go, you can legally get married in both civil and religious ceremonies. The Christian religion in Greece is orthodox so the ceremony act may be slightly different yet bearing the same meaning. Of course, for example for UK & US citizens, there will be a required certificate of impediment along with the basic info. But in essence, I would recommend working closely with an experienced wedding planner that can sort these things just flawlessly, without the extra pressure nor stress. If you want to avoid the legalities, you can only have a symbolic religious ceremony and a stunning reception affair for your precious friends and family.
Even if you are going to be on an island, there are so many accommodation choices for your attendees and the venues are accessible. If you are in Athens, there will be countless extra activities you can organize when getting married in Greece. From historical architecture and ruins to shopping, sightseeing, beach and enjoying the coastal life, or like I would say – enjoying the good life. As for the islands, there are so many charming restaurants that simply invite you to taste the iconic traditional Greek cuisine and spoil all of your senses. Even laying on the beach for a whole day is the perfect gift you can give your guests, who will also have a break from their everyday lives besides celebrating your love. Not to mention, the horizons and sunsets are simply visual poetry and divinity for your soul. The weather can be incredibly hot during summer, so I would recommend bringing parasols and fans to keep yourself cooled.
