Greece is primarily made up of a host of different islands, many of which are perfect for weddings, but the exact benefits on offer do vary between the islands. Depending on your requirements you might want to pick one of the following locations to throw a party for your dream wedding.

Rhodes

If your ideal wedding would be in a chapel or perhaps a natural spa, Rhodes is the best choice for you. It’s the sunniest island in Greece over the entire year and is easily accessible from throughout the UK.

Crete

A very historical island, Crete is filled with lovely countryside scenery and rustic buildings. It’s ideal for most types of weddings especially if you want your backdrop to be the wonderful scenery on offer.

Lefkas

This island is famous for its beaches and everything to do with the sea. If you want to have your wedding on a boat or in a scenic seaside chapel, Lefkas is going to be perfect for you. For something more private you might look to one of the villages tucked away in the mountains.

Corfu

One of the greenest islands in the region, Corfu is known as the “Emerald Isle” of Greece with the natural beauty supplemented by the historical Venetian towns and unique wedding venues dotted around the island.

Zante

This island is great value for money as the most scenic areas are less known than the regions more famous for vibrant nightlife. If you want your wedding on a soft sandy beach than Zante should be your top choice. It’s also the famous home of loggerhead turtles.

Cyprus

The south of Cyprus is primarily Greek and offers probably the biggest selection of different wedding venue types. Everything is on offer here from five star hotels by the sea to secluded villages in the mountains. Paperwork is made simple thanks to straightforward legal guidelines for weddings and a high proportion of British people already settled on the island.
