Get Married on Amorgos
Amorgos enjoys a beautiful natural landscape, green olive groves and sandy beaches
The Greek Island of Amorgos is perhaps most famous for being the filming location of the movie The Big Blue, but it is also an excellent choice for a wedding ceremony. The traditional Cycladic destination offers the perfect climate and scenery for that special day.
Situated between Naxos and Astypalaia, Amorgos enjoys a beautiful natural landscape, green olive groves and sandy beaches. It is a year-round destination, with mild winters and a mass of flowers and herbs awakening the senses in spring, and plenty of sunshine throughout the year.
Amorgos is the perfect setting for all kinds of celebrations
Weddings can be arranged at one of the local churches and chapels, on the beach or even as you stand in the warm waters of the Aegean Sea. Waves laps gently on the sand, which will invite you to indulge in a moment to refresh and soothe your feet. As the sun lowers behind you, warm hues will infuse the surrounding hills and the faces of your friends who have gathered to share your special moment.
Would you like to express the continuous love you feel for your spouse after some years of marriage?
The renewal of wedding vows is similar to a civil wedding but this time there is no documentation involved. It is all about your wish to have a day entirely for yourselves, to dance to your favourite song, enjoy a glass of champagne (or perhaps the local beverage Psimeni Raki) while watching the stunning sunset.
After exchanging your vows, you can enjoy a bounty of delightful treats prepared with fresh ingredients in a variety of special Greek dishes. Toast your guests with homemade wine from the vineyards of Amorgos. Dance the night away accompanied by local musicians on the violin and bouzouki while enjoying the spectacular views around the island.
Amorgos is also a great destination for a honeymoon, as it is different, unique and off the beaten track. It offers a tantalising combination of romance and adventure in the Aegean.
In terms of venues, you have plenty of options, including the Ambrosia restaurant, which cultivates its own products and vegetables inside an organic garden. In terms of accommodation you are also spoilt for choice, though Aegialis Hotel & Spa is one of the best options on the island. Its in-house Lalon Idor Spa boasts an indoor pool, sauna, Jacuzzi and gym, plus relaxation and refreshment areas.
