I remember the first time I stepped on to a greek island beach, I knew the colour of the sea, the beautiful sand and the warm sun would make it difficult to forget. A few years later when I got engaged people asked me where I would be getting married, I was certain I wanted a winter wedding in my home town, but every now and again I would fleetingly daydream of those warm balmy evenings surrounded by beautiful beaches. So would you get married abroad? And if so, how about Greece?

If you are after a glamorous Greek wedding then have a look at hiring you’re own villa is the way to go. You may think that it is out of budget but compared to the UK you would definitely be able to find something within your budget. One place of perfection is The Peligoni Club, it is a private members club with villas in the hills nearby.
The Peligoni Club is situated on the north east coast of Zakynthos and the perfect choice for a summer wedding, in June and September the club is available to be rented out for private weddings of up to 150 people. If you are after glamour then Peligoni can deliver on all fronts, especially when it comes to throwing an incredible wedding.
They can tailor your wedding to include specific events that fit your taste, your guest-list and your budget. Pick between boat trips, champagne breakfasts, sunset drinks or pool parties—anything that will make the event feel fabulous and fun in a very personal way. Great music is essential and they’ll help you find the right musicians for the ceremony, a band for the reception or a DJ for the after party. And if you want all of the above, then just say the word.
To match your beautifully glamorous wedding you’ll need the perfect gown. Rock the Frock bridal stock a huge range of boho dresses, suitable for any Greek wedding, I love Chantal Lauren for understated awesomeness.
The team at Peligoni will be able to help you with planning travel, food, styling and accommodation. Guests can pick a range of their wide-ranging accommodation – large Mama Mia style Greek villas to quaint cottages.
A destination wedding at Peligoni usually consists of a series events leading up to and after the big day. They will cater for and arrange all the details – and will tailor the itinerary to your vision. Drinks party on a private beach, private boat trip for the bridal party, Ibiza style pool party at their villa Figari – all is possible. Yes please!!
As Peligoni is members only – they can tailor membership packages unique to your guests – these will include access to sailing, windsurfing and paddle sports, use of their sun decks, restaurant, bars, pool, spa, cycling, tennis etc for use during the events.
