Fanari Villas, the finest choice for unforgettable weddings in Santorini Greece!
Oia Santorini Island is probably the best place in the world to hold your wedding ceremony. With a breathtaking natural backdrop which includes the deep blue Aegean, the magnificent Caldera, the mysterious volcano, and the spectacular sunset, there are no words to describe this extremely romantic setting.
At Fanari Villas, we can arrange your Santorini wedding ceremony on one of the hotel’s charming whitewashed terrace, overlooking this amazing vista at sunset. Whatever location you choose, it can be embellished with beautiful floral arrangements, candles and torches, to match the occasion. In case of bad weather, your wedding ceremony can take place in the "cave" area of the pool bar, which can accommodate up to 25 persons.
Our expert Santorini weddings planners can also make suggestions for the bridal bouquet, makeup and hairstyling, and the groom’s boutonniere, as well as the rice and rose petals. A bouquet or corsage can also be provided to the maid of honor, the flower girl and the mothers of the bride and groom, while boutonnieres can be made for the the best man and the fathers of the bride and groom.
While in Santorini, do as the Santorinians do and travel to the wedding location on a donkey, calm in temperament and decorated with fresh flowers. However, if you prefer to stick to the conservative means of transport, you can rent a luxury car. A traditional two-piece band can also accompany both the bride and the groom to the location of the ceremony.
Fanari Villas Hotel cooperates with a photographer and a videographer that can capture one of the most special moments of your life. These services include 60 photos 13X20 cm (or 5,12X7,87 in), 1 CD with the photos and an album. Additional photos can be taken, coloured or black and white upon request.
If you require bombonieres, we provide standard ones, with tulle, unless otherwise informed. In this case, we can help you select the ideal bombonieres, according to your personal style and taste. Bombonieres must be selected at least 15 days prior to your Santorini wedding. For religious wedding, we can also provide wedding crowns (stefana), church candles (lambades), a wedding wine glass, a silver-coated tray for the wine and the glass, bombonieres baskets, and a table cloth, which you may purchase, if you wish.
Champagne is offered to the bride and groom at the end of the wedding ceremony to make a toast and to take pictures. We can also arrange, if ordered, a glass of champagne for the wedding guests to toast the couple or as a welcome drink as they arrive at the wedding location. Welcome baskets and gifts for the guests are a very popular way of showing how much you appreciate their presence at your wedding. Your guests can also capture the best moments of your wedding ceremony with disposable cameras.
We recommend planning your Santorini wedding ceremony as far in advance as possible, due to the popularity of the island as a wedding and honeymoon vacation.
