Your dream wedding in Athens

Greece is best known for its dreamy islands, their beaches and the sun that shines more than 300 days per year, facts that make our little country perfect for destination weddings. What you may not know is that Athens, the capital, has an 18km riviera that combines all the above, so many more venues for any event or taste near an abundance of hotels & AirBnBs, AND it's easily accessible by an international airport!

Being wedding photographers based in Athens, we have shot at most of Athens' beautiful venues which we'll be more than happy to share with you: versatile spaces by the sea, hidden vineyard-like estates, rural gardens with castles, even rooftops overlooking the Acropolis. Find your unique wedding venue in Athens for 2024 in our top choices presented below.

If you've dreamt of a beach wedding, sand in your toes, your carefree guests sipping their cocktails while watching the sunset, then Reef Athens Riviera is your venue. We shot some amazing photos during Melanie & Danny's wedding in 2023 and it was surely one of our favorites. The ceromony on the beach under a wooden gazebo with stunning views to the sea and the sunset was followed by a rich dinner on the lawn under the romantic bulb lights - the food was beyond tasteful! The party was a highlight on its own and lasted till early morning. Definitely a choice for the boho souls and more intimate weddings.

Destination wedding in Athens or on a greek island?

We hope that the above proposals prove that Athens can cover even the most demanding couples' tastes and even outweigh the infamous greek islands like Mykonos and Paros. Logistically speaking, it's definitely easier for your guests to attend your wedding, as they will probably join you from the four corners of the Earth; it's luckily to be more cost effective as well, as most vendors are based in Athens and won't charge you any extra transportation & accommodation fees. And to answer a very popular questions among couples: local vendors on islands usually don't exist and even if they do, there is a chance their services are not as high-end as of those in Athens. Moreover, Athens, because of its size, has such a variety of venues which means many more available dates for your events than the limited islands' venues where several restrictions (in time, space, guest number etc.) may also apply.

Feel free to contact us and ask us the best venues to take stunning photos at! We'll be more than happy to consult you and share all our experience to have the wedding of your dreams in our little piece of heaven. See you in Greece!
