Sealed with a kiss
Although a wedding does take over 250 hours of planning and there are several choices and decisions that may seem overwhelming, when there is a clear process everything just falls into place. Be as simple or elaborate as you wish.
There are endless lists of tasks and details that have surely gotten your attention and you have most likely printed, downloaded and filled in a couple of these to say the least. There is wonderful material out there and many platforms with a lot of information to help you organize.
Having a wedding abroad is so much more than that. You suddenly have to think about language barriers and communication issues with vendors and venues. Setting the date is not so simple if you don’t know about the cultural festivals and events that may cause issues or distractions from your big day.
Planning small events before or after the wedding such as a brunch, luncheon, beach BBQ, boat ride or a pool party will add that polished feel and believe me it makes all the difference. With the right planning these events will be incorporated into your budget with ease.
In order to make the best decisions you need to know your options and someone who can point you in the right direction. Selecting a destination that is lesser-known means that your ceremony is not rushed to accommodate others and on your wedding day you are the only bride. I guarantee that many years later you will want to return to that special spot that is yours alone to celebrate your anniversary.
Let’s meet for brunch!
If you aren’t here in Greece to meet up with us, get in touch and book a free consultation. Let's share ideas and discuss any questions or concerns you may have.
Step One | Ceremony
This is usually a very short ceremony that takes place in a city hall with the mayor lasting about 20 min. Keep in mind that there are procedures, translations, and paperwork that needs to be prepared well in advance. If you would rather have the legal ceremony at a venue of your choice and not in the city hall, this is also possible. You may choose to keep it simple and sweet or you can continue with a party celebration at the venue of your choice.
Celebrate your commitment and love for each with a symbolic ceremony including close friends and family. This type of ceremony is completely personalized at any location of your choice. I am able to provide you with an officiant or you can choose someone dear to you to perform the ceremony. Let's begin designing your dreamy Aegean Wedding.
The churches and chapels are a characteristic woven into the landscape. Churches of admired architecture towering proudly over village rooftops, chapels nesting on mountain peaks, sheltered in dense forests, on the seaside, or hidden in caves are an essential element of the island. Ask us about old traditions passed on for generations in the Aegean or give it a modern twist.
The best way to celebrate your upcoming anniversary is to remember all the reasons you said: “I do”! Every detail of your second honeymoon will be taken care of. I can’t think of a better anniversary present. Let’s plan a surprise celebration for your one and only.
The sun setting in the Aegean Sea creates the perfect shades in the Mediterranean sky for a most romantic proposal. This most memorable moment symbolic of your journey in life together will be perfect. Having the luxury of private beach coves, your complete privacy is ensured.
Step Two | Venues and Locations
Locations in Greece
The Greek Islands, the Peloponnese or the Athenian Riviera? The islands in the Aegean are unique destinations. Unspoiled by mass tourism islands like Ios, Samos and Patmos boast natural landscapes created for the perfect honeymoon. In the city, on the islands, or in the Peloponnese, boutique hotels, luxurious estates, and villas offer exclusive stays and privacy for bespoke weddings and private events. Let's explore the possibilities.
Private BEACH WEDDINGS
It's no wonder that these coasts in the Aegean have been awarded time and time again. From quiet coves to long stretches of golden sand, your wedding will be breathtaking. Weddings in Samos have that element of privacy no matter where you may be. Have both your ceremony and reception on a beach and sail away on a yacht to a honeymoon in Patmos.
Don’t want to get your feet in the sand? Imagine you are on a cliff with only the Aegean Sea stretching far beyond what the eye can see. There are several venues for your wedding ceremony that will surround you with all shades of Mediterranean blue. Thanks to their location some of these venues have no restrictions on how long the party will last.
Vintage & Rustic
Charming authentic villages provide exceptionally unique ceremony venues. Seaside villages along the coast, or Private Vineyards in the mountains surrounded by aromatic herbs, pine trees, trickling streams, and olive groves. The cultural festivals will add unique experiences as a part of your guest's itinerary making it all the more memorable.
PRIVATE Estates & Villas
Villas located in remote areas with complete privacy are ideal for exclusive events and weddings with a smaller guest list. Private estates feature their own in-house chef, private masseuse, wine tasting from their own wine production, and secluded beaches for first-class service. Small and intimate weddings reach a whole new level of elegance at private estates. Treat your guests like Greek Gods with the most luxurious event and holiday experience.
