If you want your wedding and honeymoon to be truly special and extraordinary, choose one of Attica’s stunning little islands, a stone’s throw away from the port of Piraeus. Each has its own individual beauty and character, from cosmopolitan Hydra, romantic Poros and elegant Spetses, to traditional Aegina, picturesque Agistri and mythical Kythera. Here, tradition blends with modernity, and the unique wedding customs that have survived from ancient times, add even more colour and joy to wedding ceremonies.
In Poros the bride and groom walk to the church, in separate wedding processions accompanied by family, friends and musicians who play traditional wedding tunes. In Hydra the bride often wears the traditional folk costume of the island – short silk velvet coat, long skirt with folds and an embroidered silk head scarf. After the ceremony, the wedding celebration begins: plenty of feasting, music by local instruments, such as the violin and lute, singing and dancing. In Spetses bride and groom go to the church together, either on foot accompanied by musicians playing traditional wedding songs or on a decorated carriage, pulled by a white horse. In Kythera, the island where Aphrodite, the goddess of love and romance was born, all guests sing traditional wedding tunes, couplets of praises to the bride and groom and wishes for their new life together.
No matter which island you choose or what type of wedding you dream of – traditional or modern, with few friends and relatives at a little church by the sea or with many guests at a luxurious hotel with astonishing facilities – this special day will be forever engraved in your mind and heart.
The delicious wedding menus with local traditional flavours and the “amygdalota” and “kourabiedes” that are offered as a sweet treat in island weddings, will thrill you and your guests. The hospitable local people and experienced professionals will help you organise everything, exactly the way you’ve dreamed of. You will reach the picturesque whitewashed churches that lie by the sea or on a tiny nearby island in the traditional decorated small boats. At the wedding reception, you and your guests will dance along with a local dance group in traditional folk costumes, that will teach you the steps of the joyous local dances. Your photographs will be taken in stunning locations, with the islands’ breathtaking sights in the background. You will love the majestic colours of the sunset as you take a romantic walk in the narrow paved alleys, along the promenades or on the golden sandy beaches of the Saronic islands.
