In typical Greek style, you can get married between the vineyards of a winery, say “I do” and celebrate with a glass of Vinsanto as well as a great selection of other wines. An- other popular wedding alternative is to get married in a medieval Orthodox or Catholic Church perched on a hill overlooking the sea or make your way to the villages of Oia and Pyrgos.

Get inspired by a traditional wedding in Santorini

“Kopiaste sto gamo” (come to the wedding) is the signal call that the wedding has started. From the terrace, the groom's father will fire a shot with his rifle as violin- ists play wedding songs and head for the best man's home. Then, the village priest will take the best man and the couple's relatives to the closest vineyard to cut vines for the wedding crowns.

The priest will cut three white grape vines, and bless and sprinkle it with sweet wine to give it to the best man. The wine should not return to the bridal home and the best man will throw the bottle up in the air only to fall in the vineyard and break into pieces.The crowns are placed on an all-white tablecloth where the village girls will wrap it with cotton, ribbons and lemon blossoms tied with a golden thread.

Once the crowns are ready, the violins sound the signal and everyone arrives at the church. Before the ceremony commences, the couple kisses the hands of their parents for their blessing. When the ceremony is over, the “ferta” begins an ancient custom where every guest drops any amount they wish onto a collection plate.
