Zante is the most southerly of the Ionian islands with a landscape that ranges from mountainous terrain through gentle hills in the north, to flat countryside and golden sand beaches in the south. Perfect for romance and celebration, the island is a beach lover's paradise offering beautiful beaches, picturesque views and a lively nightlife along with a bountiful choice of restaurants to spend a balmy evening. Zante Town is reminiscent of Venice, with its historic St Mark’s Square and Solomos Square lined with reconstructed neo-classical buildings. Weddings can be held in many beautiful venues and we always recommend that you stay in the resort or near to the location you wish to get married in.
Renewal of Vows
A renewal of wedding vows can be performed by the registrar of Zante and it costs the same as a civil wedding ceremony. The only documents required are your original marriage certificate and copies of your passport details. We can arrange this when the holiday duration is at least 7 nights.
Ladofanaro on the Beach
Ladofanaro on the Beach is an amazing location for weddings and unique receptions. Its traditional taverna offers fantastic sea views and is located at Aboula beach in the Tragaki area, just 10 minutes by car from Tsilivi. The venue has three levels, the upper level is the restaurant, second level is on the grass and third level is on the sand. The tavern provides traditional menus with gourmet cuisine and homemade wine.
This very pretty venue in Tsilivi combines a picturesque setting for wedding ceremonies and reception banquets. The bride can make a grand entrance to meet her groom and guests waiting for her on the grass area set up with chairs and tables. After the ceremony, enjoy a few cocktails with family and friends where a meze style menu, a three-course meal or a barbecue are all available as reception options.
This is the most iconic beach in Zante and one of the most sought-after locations for a wedding. Only accessible by boat this famous beach is in Agios Sostis and is ideal for those that have always dreamed of a true beach wedding.
The Vardiola Restaurant in Tsilivi provides a beautiful location for the reception, either outside in the garden next to the seafront, or upstairs in the elevated area of the restaurant. In the garden, we can provide formal round tables for wedding guests and a top table for the bride and groom. An elevated dance floor can also be arranged.
Republic Beach Club
Republic Beach Club is the perfect wedding venue, situated in Laganas, and is available for both small intimate affairs and larger full-scale celebrations. In addition to offering many pre-set packages and menus for your ceremony and celebration, they offer customised solutions to suit the most demanding of tastes.
Cameo Island is a small island just off the shore from the resort of Laganas and is connected to Zante (Zakynthos) by a long wooden bridge, adding to the charm of this picturesque location. It truly is a unique wedding setting where you can hire the beach cove, just for you and your wedding guests. The bride will walk across the bridge to find her prince charming waiting on the other side of the island and the ceremony is conducted against a sea view backdrop.
Cameo Island has become a very popular wedding location due to its quaint, relaxing atmosphere and unrivalled beauty. Say your vows in front of the white pebble beach and sparkling turquoise waters whilst the white muslin curtains float in the sky above you. If you wish to have your reception on Cameo Island, a BBQ can be arranged. (Due to the popularity of the venue, it is recommended that this be booked at the time of booking your wedding ceremony to avoid disappointment)
Due to the accessibility of the venue and steep stone steps, it is recommended that everyone, including the bride, is dressed as simply as possible with sensible shoes. Access for disabled, elderly and children in prams is difficult. Taking all this into account will allow your guests to be safe and your day to be perfect.
This romantic boutique hotel has a unique location on the cliff side, enjoying the most fascinating and unique view of the sea, Tsilivi Beach, and of course the breathtaking sunset.
The wedding area is in a completely private area, allowing ample space for large wedding parties, and yet is intimate enough for smaller weddings. Wedding guests can be seated in a formal aisle style, complete with the all important red carpet, or casually standing if there's a smaller group - if you wish. The reception can either take place in the shaded restaurant at the Balcony, which offers ample space for dining and entertainment while watching the sunset over Tsilivi. This hotel operates a one wedding per day policy.
