If you're dreaming of a wedding in paradise, Skiathos is the place to make this a reality, with gorgeous scenery, luxurious venues and delicious Greek dining.
If you're dreaming of a wedding in paradise, Skiathos is the place to be. This verdant Greek island glistens in a hundred shades of green, blue and gold, from its stunning shoreline to its luscious forests, to its fig trees, olive groves and grape vineyards. In Skiathos, over 60 beaches beckon, each with their own unique beauty, meaning that however specific that image in your head of that perfect ceremony scene, you'll find it here.
Leave behind the distractions of daily life and step into the warm embrace of Mediterranean living as it should be in Skiathos. Gorgeous scenery, luxurious venues and, of course, delicious Greek cuisine make weddings in Skiathos the perfect way to begin a life together as you mean to go on.
Skiathos wedding venues encapsulate the pure beauty of the island, its nature and heritage. At the Kassandra Bay Resort, couples can get married surrounded by sea and sun, and prepare for the big day in the wellness spa, offering massages, Jacuzzi, sauna and even yoga and pilates classes.
Princess Hotel Skiathos is ensconced by pine-clad hills and rolling olive groves, offering intimate Greek weddings where all the family can enjoy taverna-style seafood dining, cocktails, live music and children's entertainment. Skiathos Atrium, on the other hand, is perched atop a gorgeous hillside, where you can say your vows on a stylish natural stone terrace overlooking a picturesque bay. The choices are endless.
A Skiathos wedding offers not only unforgettable memories of the day itself but also incredible honeymoons. The morning after you have "made it official", you can head out to explore all that this fantastic destination has to offer. Beach-hopping may well be your first port of call, and there is plenty to choose from, be in palm thronged shores or wetland bays.
To witness a seaside scene you've never seen on postcards, head to Koukounaries Beach. As you approach, you will notice the 1200-metre long stretch of gold sand literally sparkling under the sun. A Lalaria Beach, you can see the more rugged side of the Skiathos shoreline, reaching its scenic rock arch on a boat excursion.
Of course, it's not all about sunbathing - Agia Eleni beach is much-loved among windsurfers, whereas the offshore islands are the perfect spot to do some diving or snorkelling, with a whole world of multicoloured marine life waiting to be discovered. If you prefer to stay on dry land, there are countless hiking trails to explore, taking in sights such as Cape Kastro and the Agios Apostolis. Along the way, you might spot curious bird species such as long-necked Mediterranean shags and blue rock thrushes.
And, whilst nature is certainly in abundance in Skiathos, culture vultures will find plenty to intrigue, too. Visit the Evangelistria Monastery, which was used as a hideaway by revolutionaries during the War of Independence against Turkish rule. Rumour has it that this is the place where the Greek flag was flown for the first time. After a long day of adventure, retire to one of the countless Greek tavernas for some seriously delicious fresh seafood, before retiring for the evening at a winery to enjoy delectable local grape varieties on the very same soil that they were grown.
