Wedding Chapels

Getting married in Greece, on a faraway island in the middle of the Aegean Sea, under the candle lights inside a chapel is a dream for many soon-to-be-married couples. Greece provides a huge variety of wedding destinations in mesmerizing locations with wedding chapels, that could bring out the romantic side even to people that dislike romantic weddings. As a destination wedding photographer for more than 10 years, I have seen this happen quite often. Couples that were planning to have a minimal and modern theme wedding, they have changed everything, the moment they set their eyes on the Greek Wedding Chapels. I cannot explain it… maybe it’s the sunset, the deep blue waters, the Aegean aura, the people, the summer vibes… love and inspiration can move mountains! Finding the right wedding chapel is equally important with finding the right wedding dress and photographer. You will only have one day and one opportunity to experience the big day on the best terms. Just think carefully… if you choose a tiny wedding chapel but your guests are more than 50, then most of them won’t be able to share the happy event with you. They will be out of the wedding chapel… Who wants that? Agios Mamas, Spetses This warm chapel was built to honour Saint Mamas. A ship that was carrying grape-must was shipwrecked about 100m from the shore, on the name day of Agios Mamas. The captain of a ship was saved and built the church in gratitude, using must instead of water.   Agios Fokas, Paros Paros: an island for relaxing vacations, beautiful beaches, frenetic parties… and some more: an excellent location for destination romantic weddings. Agios Fokas is one of the sweetest churches on the island – away from the noise of Parikia and surrounded by the Aegean sea on both sides. You actually have a beach at one side, and some cliffs diving into the sea on the other. As a backdrop, you have the breathtaking Greek sunset at the top of the Aegean Sea. Today in Paros there are 450 churches, of which 150 are in the city or villages and the rest are chapels in the countryside. In Paros you will meet some of the oldest chapels in Greece.   Stavros Church, Tinos The Stavros Church is at a gorgeous scenery coupled with the traditional Cycladic architecture, a truly dreamlike scene! Tinos is famous for its Churches, but few people are familiar with the astonishing wild beauty of its small, far away little Chapels of the island. This unique Chapel of the Cross, in the old Harbor of Tinos, is literally built part of the sea. Right next to the little white church are the ruins of an ancient port used by the Venetians.   Agios Ioannis, Mykonos This little church is by the sea breeze. The magical time to hold a ceremony is a little before the golden hour of a beautiful summer evening. The picturesque little church of Agios Ioannis is so beautiful and welcoming that every couple will feel the charming atmosphere and the dreamlike moments they could live there.
