This week’s destination wedding in Corfu has helped to highlight that one of the great things about getting married abroad (although there are many!) is that it is makes your wedding more than a one day event.
The day’s surrounding your big day will be just as filled with love and laughter as the ceremony day itself. This presents the perfect opportunity to plan great get-togethers with your nearest and dearest…and don’t forget to get as many photographs of these memorable moments as possible!
Katie and Roubesh tied the knot on the breathtakingly beautiful island of Corfu (be sure to take a look at their gorgeous garden wedding). Not only did they hold a sunset cocktail party to welcome their guests to their island wedding but they also took advantage of being surrounded by stunning scenery the day after their nuptials, keeping the celebrations going by heading to the high seas with their loved ones for a day of swimming, snorkelling and sunbathing. Pure bliss!
Penelope Photography was on hand to capture this special time as Katie and Roubesh celebrated being newlyweds with their friends and family. Enjoy the charming Corfu scenery, it sure does make you want to go on holiday!

I almost don’t know where to begin with describing today’s destination wedding! It’s tempting to say it’s AMAZING and leave it at that as it truly is stunning and the incredible photographs from Penelope Photography perfectly convey the essence of this gorgeous garden wedding…
…Of course I can’t just leave it there though! It would be just plain rude of me to not mention the flowers for a start; I honestly don’t think I’ve seen a more beautiful flower-filled destination wedding day.
Katie and Roubesh chose a fabulous private villa in Corfu for their outdoor ceremony and reception, and they covered every element of their celebration with soft, delicate, pastel buds. From the wow-factor floral altar to the wedding aisle bursting with blooms, from the blossoming table décor to the fragrant lavender boutonnieres, this darling day was everything you could dream a garden wedding to be and more.
The flickering candlelit lanterns and Katie’s soft lace sweetheart gown further complemented the romantic and dreamy atmosphere. *Sigh!* You’re going to love this one….
One of the best things about getting married abroad is that you get to enjoy a holiday with all of your loved ones! Make this special time together even more memorable by planning get-togethers such as a welcome party – this will give your guests time to properly unwind after their long journey whilst creating an opportunity for everyone to get to know each other before the big day.
Katie and Roubesh decided to do just that. As a warm welcome for their nearest and dearest who had travelled from all over the world for their special day, they threw an alfresco cocktail party, perfectly setting the stylish tone for their gorgeous garden wedding day in Corfu…which is coming up on the blog later this morning! It’s seriously amazing and not to be missed!
Here’s a glimpse at their pre-wedding sunset soiree to give you a little taster of the chic celebration that is to come on the blog later today, along with some inspiration and ideas for planning a welcome party at your own destination wedding.
Fyllenia & Panagiotis ♥ Athens, Greece

With wonderful sunshine smiling down on the UK this week, this beautiful and chic summer garden wedding that took place just on the outskirts of Athens in Greece should inspire your warm weather loving heart!
Today’s darling duo chose to tie the knot outdoors at the stunning Laas Estate, built from natural stone, surrounded by landscaped gardens and wow-factor panoramic views, this venue is truly enchanting.
The romantic destination wedding location was delicately decorated with rustic touches to create a simple-yet-stunning, countryside chic theme and the brilliant Elias Kordelakos was on hand to capture all of the magic on camera.

If you weren’t feeling that you would love to jet off on holiday somewhere that the sun is shining brightly then you certainly will once you see today’s glorious summer wedding in Greece.
This is what destination wedding days are all about! Clear blue skies overhead, a delightfully decorated garden venue and a relaxed outdoor ceremony where you and your guests can enjoy the warmth of the summer sun.
Add a beautiful boho-bride with a bright wild daisy bouquet, two cuter-than-cute flower girls (aren’t their dainty gypsophila flower crowns pretty?) and a dapper groom dressed in a sleek navy suit and you have a gorgeous garden wedding in Greece that your nearest and dearest will adore attending…
Yuni & Ben ♥ Santorini, Greece
Photographer: Vangelis Photography
The stories of how people meet are always so special and today’s tender tale is no exception. A truly modern romance of two people and a chance meeting in Japan, yet everything seems to work in their favour and them being together simply falls in to place.
On these occasions, with friends and family spread across the world and so many places that are special to them as a couple or that they could call home, it always seems to make sense to have a destination wedding in a neutral location.
That’s exactly what Yuni and Ben did and they set their destination wedding sights on the sun-drenched island of Santorini after hearing so much about the gorgeous Greek getaway. What better an excuse than their wedding to take this trip of a lifetime and to share the experience with their nearest and dearest?
Anyway, I’ll let the talented Vangelis Photography tell you more about this super-cute couple and their sleek and stylish Santorini wedding…
