5 reasons to get married in Lefkas

This is my first ever guest blog post! I’m delighted to introduce you to my guest, Claire from Lefkas weddings. We met back in 2017, Claire was looking for a wedding Celebrant for a beach ceremony. As the bride was Greek American, Claire was putting feelers out for Greek-speaking Celebrants and I was very impressed to receive an email enquiry from her in Greek! Since that first experience of working together I always get fist pumpingly excited whenever I see a request from her in my inbox because I LOVE going to Lefkas. Claire has put together 5 excellent reasons to get married in Lefkas!

But don’t just take my word for it – here are Claire’s top reasons for a wedding in Lefkas in her words:

I feel the Ionian is one of the most magical areas of Greece. It’s inspired legends and love stories and it’s the perfect place to say, ‘I do’. Lefkas Weddings is principally based in Lefkas (or Lefkada) island and here are my top five reasons why it makes a great location for your destination wedding in Greece.

Lefkas is a unique location

You are choosing an island that your guests probably haven’t visited before so it is a great new experience for everyone! Equally as beautiful as its sister islands of Corfu and Kefalonia, on Lefkas you’ll find the same, familiar olive filled landscape, white beaches and iridescent blue Ionian Sea. It has a calm atmosphere and relaxing stays await you, in luxury villas nestled in the hillside and stylish boutique hotels rather than big resorts hotels.

Travel to Lefkas

Easy to get to, Lefkada has direct flights from the UK, Germany, Netherlands and other European countries from April to October each year. A stress-free transfer time of 25 minutes brings you to the island which is connected to the mainland by a bridge, so you and your guests can be on a sunbed and sipping a cocktail within a short time of landing!

Authentic charm

Maybe you are dreaming of a traditional little white church? Or is it a pretty floral arch on the beach. After… Is it dinner al fresco in an olive grove, with fairy-lit dancing between the trees? Or maybe you are thinking of a waterside restaurant with an air of relaxed luxury? If you get married in Lefkas you have a wealth of possibilities for your destination wedding celebration.

Sail away with me

Lefkas has some stunning coastline and the calm, sheltered waters off the east coast are perfect for sailing and cruising. Many of our waterside venues have a private pontoon so arrival by boat is the ideal way to travel. Make your bridal entrance on a traditional caique boat or enjoy a champagne cruise with your guests after your wedding ceremony.

Creative Ceremonies

When you get married in Lefkas, we can offer you a choice of ceremonies types including symbolic, civil and religious for your wedding day. You can say ‘I do’ in many locations such as at the beach, on a pretty terrace by the sea or the gardens of a private villa. I absolutely recommend extending the marriage legalities, which are very quick and in Greek, with a personalised ceremony written for you by Elizabeth to make a lifelong memory for you and your guests.
