Venues - Weddings in Zakynthos Island
Cameo Island (ceremony and reception)
This beautiful small island off the coast of Agios Sostis is the ideal romantic location for your wedding. We cross the bridge which takes you on to the island and then come down the steps to the pretty little cove by the sea where the ceremony takes place. You have the option of exclusivity of the downstairs cove so that it will be private just for you and your guests for a couple of hours.
You can either include just drinks in your wedding package and move on to another venue for your reception or you can stay on the island for a simple BBQ style reception.
Balcony (ceremony and reception)
This is a beautiful venue both for your ceremony and reception with its stunning views and excellent food and service. Your ceremony will take place on the balcony area, overlooking the sea, which will be private for the duration of the ceremony, champagne and photos.
The reception takes place in the restaurant area which has large open windows all the way round so you can still enjoy the fantastic view and also has access to the side balcony area. A stunning location for your beautiful wedding photos with the sea view and garden area and ;later on a beautiful view of the sunset setting in the distance.
Alexandra Beach (ceremony and reception)
The Alexandra Beach Hotel is set on a cliff top overlooking the bay of Tsilivi with a fantastic view of the beach and resort and the perfect setting for lovely sunset pictures. Your wedding ceremony will take place either on the beach in front of the hotel on the jetty above the quietly lapping waves of the beautiful blue sea or in the Blue Bar above which is a stunning venue with the feeling of being suspended between the sea and sky!
Your reception usually takes place in the beach bar where you can opt for exclusivity so it will be just you and your guests.
Vardiola (ceremony and reception)
The Vardiola in Kypselli offers the perfect combination of a tasteful and refined wedding on the lawn/wooden platform with dressed white chairs for your guests with the beautiful blue sea in the background which makes for a lovely backdrop for romantic photos of your special day.
A 'beach' wedding without having to get your feet covered in sand – unless you want to of course!! Ideal for Vintage Style Weddngs.
Akrotiri North (ceremony and reception)
The Akrotiri North is a contemporary style beach bar set by the sea in a quiet area of Zante Town. The white wooden decking together with the blue crystal clear sea provides a modern yet traditionally Greek setting for your wedding ceremony and reception. The ceremony takes place on the lawn with of course the opportunity to go down to the narrow beach for your romantic photos.
It is the perfect venue to stay on afterwards for your reception, the food is excellent as the owners also have a local restaurant which is very popular with the locals (always a good sign!)
Sea View Traditional Taverna (ceremony and reception)
This venue has a fantastic view of the coastal line of Zante town (with the neighbouring island of Kefalonia in the background) and later on enjoys a beautiful sunset in the gardens.
You can enjoy a relaxed and tranquil wedding and reception followed by fun with Greek dancers and/or DJ for a great party.
Shoestrings (ceremony and reception)
This is a lovely secluded location for your wedding ceremony and reception. A well hidden treasure and perfect for an intimate wedding for you and your guests.
Porta del Mar (ceremony and reception)
A group of lovely villas set in beautiful garden surroundings overlooking the sandy beach and crystal clear sea of Psarou. There is a small gazebo overlooking the beach which provides a beautiful setting for your wedding ceremony.
These villas are in a secluded quiet area providing tranquillity perfect for your wedding. They can also cater for your wedding reception BBQ style.
This is a great combination with Cameo Island weddings for those who don't want to stay on Cameo for their reception but who want to stay close by. It is just across from Cameo so while you enjoy your meal and party with your friends and family you will be able to see the island where just a short while earlier you joined hands and said your wedding vows to each other.
It is within walking distance from Cameo (when the tide is out) or just a few minutes by taxi. The food and service are excellent. It is also ideal for small wedding ceremonies.
Neraida (ceremony and reception)
The Neraida (fairy) is located in the relatively quiet resort of Alykanas. The wedding ceremony takes place on the beach followed by the reception in the traditional Neraida taverna behind.
It is very difficult to find a quiet beach as all Greek beaches belong to the public and nearly all photos you will sea of beach weddings in Zante will have been taken out of season and the reality will be lots of sunbeds and people in the photos (unless of course you also have your ceremony out of season!) For this reason we have chosen this part of the beach as it is in an area where there aren't loads of sunbeds to spoil the atmosphere and your photos!
The Neraida taverna just behind is perfect for a reception with a traditional Greek atmosphere (live Greek music and dancing) until about 10pm when the DJ can then get the rest of the party going so something for everyone!
Agios Haralambos (ceremony)
A beautiful location in Kypselli next to the Agios Haralambos church. Set on the low cliff edge overlooking the sea this location provides the perfect rustic setting for your wedding ceremony. It is about 200 metress from the Vardiola restaurant which makes a lovely combination for your wedding and reception.
Greek Experience (ceremony and reception)
Our lovely new venue where you will truly enjoy the 'Greek Experience'. Your ceremony will take place on the lawn overlooking the sea followed by your reception on the lower balcony area which will be just for you and your guests.
Crystal Beach (ceremony and reception)
For those wanting a beach wedding but without getting their feet sandy then this provides the perfect location as your ceremony will take place on the patio overlooking the sea and sandy beach. For those who don't mind getting their feet sandy there is of course the opportunity for going down to the beach for those romantic beach photos as well as photos in the beautiful gardens of the hotel.
Keri Clifftop (ceremony)
Your wedding ceremony will take place at the lighthouse at Keri one of the few unspoiled villages left on the island and renowned for its beautiful sunset. Your ceremony will be conducted on the cliff top just as the sun is setting in the background.
A great combination with a Cameo Island wedding as it is just 5 minutes away. Set in a pretty garden with a children's play area and an indoor bar to move into if you want the party to go on later...
