You Mean The World To Me 06

 

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!

While watching the movie ‘Mamma Mia,’ who couldn’t help but google ‘last minute holidays to Greece?! Greece is one of the most visited holiday destinations for us Brits and it’s also becoming an increasingly favoured wedding destination.

 

You can’t take your eyes off the beautiful beaches and the stunning vistas that are the breathtaking backdrop to ‘Mamma Mia’. Well, when you aren’t being distracted by Pierce Brosnan ripping his shirt off that is.

(Shhhh! Yes he’s old enough to be our father! It’s just those eyes…..and those James Bond good looks… Anyway, moving on!)

 

Who wouldn’t want to holiday or honeymoon on one of the many gorgeous Greek islands and enjoy a little slice of the simple life? The incredible food, the warm hospitality, the traditional tavernas, the whitewashed villas, the blue domed churches dotting the skyline – team this with year-round sunshine and you have a destination fit for a Greek goddess.

A favourite Greek island to many, has to be Santorini. If you’ve been you’ll know why and if you haven’t, make sure it’s high on your to-see list. If you’re looking for a spectacular cliff edge wedding with an exclusive feel, take a look at some of the five star hotels clinging to the rocky face of Fira on Santorini island. The views are some of the best in the world, bringing with it sensational sunsets and conjouring up more romance than even Aphrodite could handle.

 

Take a break, put your feet up, snack on some tzatziki and enjoy a little Greek destination wedding inspiration and some beautiful brides rocking picture-perfect lace dresses. And, if you aren’t Googling ‘last minute holidays to Greece’ by the end of looking at this little lot, then here’s hoping you might be Googling ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’!!
