The spectacular scenery, including a large mountain range, can provide the backdrop for your vows, just as it did for the love story starring Nicolas Cage and Penelope Cruz.
The magnificent beaches are surrounded by turquoise waters, home to marine wildlife including dolphins, monk seals and loggerhead turtles. Kefalonia also has a range of tavernas, resorts and accommodation to provide the ideal scenery for your own movie magic.
So if you and your partner are seeking a romantic Greek wedding or honeymoon on a beautiful island, then look no further – Kefalonia is the perfect destination for your perfect wedding day.
