Mykonos Wedding Photographer
Mykonos! What a place! It’s one of the most well known and cosmopolitan Greek isles, and for good reason. There’s hopping night life, popular beaches, gorgeous scenery and incredible architecture, but of course all this comes at a price; Mykonos can get busy and expensive, as with all popular travel destinations. But if you plan properly and select the right place, you’ll be fine. As a result, the Dreamtime vote goes to either Mykonos or Santorini as the best Greek island for a wedding.
Wedding photography in Mykonos is defined by he many architectural wonders of the island. A great place for imagery is the monastery of Panagia Tourliani, or Little Venice in Mykonos Town. Little Venice has gorgeous mideval houses with bright balconies and interesting streets; many call it one of the most romantic areas in the Greek Isles. The sunsets are colorful and vibrant, and it’s reached by a short walk from the Windmills. These interesting buildings helped the island produce wheat and bread in centuries past. Also, consider a couples or engagement shoot in front of Panagia Paraportiani, a 600 year old church that’s the most photographed of all 400 of the island’s churches.
Mykonos is a huge tourist attraction bringing thousands to its beaches year round. Some of the beach parties can last all day and all night, and are fueled by local wines and international DJs.
Places like Petro the Pelican, Little Venice, and the Mykonos windmills are great places to sightsee and get an idea of how Greece was back in the old days. There are great museums (Folklore Museum, the Archaeological Museum); incredible beaches, and lots of night life. Mykonos actually ranks up there with Ibiza as one of Europe’s most happening places. You can also take the wedding party to Delos, a deserted island off the coast with archaeological wonders.
Best places to get married in Mykonos
There are many hotels in and around Mykonos to choose from, and some incredible cute chapels. The St. Theodore and St. George Chapel has great views onto Elia Beach.
The new Avaton, perched up on the cliff above the same beach, is probably the nicest hotel on the island. Other great places include the botique and ultra modern Grace Hotel; the 5-star Mykonos Grand, which has its own chapel a stone’s throw from the beach; the Tharroe of Mykonos, which has a great tavern and 26 completely different rooms; and the Vencia Hotel, which is up on a hill and sports amazing views. Also check out The Kivotos, Mykonos Grand Hotel & Resort, the Grecotel Mykonos Blu, Deliades Hotel, Hotel Belvedere, Bill & Coo, Santa Marina Resort, and Villa Galaxy.
Dreamtime Verdict: Mykonos
A near perfect place for a destination wedding, especially if you have a larger guest list and want to ensure your family and friends have lots of stuff to do. Couples with small guest lists who are seeking a more intimate experience might go for a place like Poros, but if you want to have a bash, Mykonos might be a great option. It’s got the most night life of all the Greek Islands, along with some of the beautiful architecture, great weather, and beautiful beaches that the Greek Islands our known for. Two thumbs up!
