An Ithaca wedding

One of Kefalonia’s sister islands, Ithaca is steeped in myths and legends mostly relating to her ancient king, Odysseus. Though small in size, Ithaca has a great heart, mainly due to the warmth of the people, who are always eager to ensure your stay on their island is something that will remain in your hearts forever. Flights are to Kefalonia and a ferry transfer goes from Sami port over to the island. If you don’t want to book your accommodation via a travel agency, we can recommend some beautiful private villas and liaise with the owners on your behalf. Car hire is essential; though small, the island is quite rugged and you must not miss out on its outstanding beauty. For a great honeymoon let us recommend a 7 acre private country estate with four traditionally built houses, a swimming pool and fragrant terraced gardens. Even if you get married on Kefalonia it might be worth considering Ithaca for your honeymoon. Vathy, the capital, is full of quaint shops and coffee bars and its very easy to sit down and watch life go by. The Folklore and Archaeological museums are definitely worth a visit, as is the cake shop to try the Ithacan speciality ‘Rovani’. The town hall is situated along the harbour front and this is where civil weddings take place. A photographer will take photos at your wedding and these will be presented to you in an album before your departure. An Ithacan cake shop will bake your wedding cake freshly for your wedding day and something very special about your Ithacan wedding is the boat trip across the bay to Gregory’s Taverna, which works closely with us to ensure the whole day is a complete success. Weather permitting your tables will be set up on the area above the beach, but there is also an indoor seating area. Local musicians can serenade you during your boat trip or at the taverna, to add even more of a Greek feel to this very special occasion. Choose your flowers from our selection on the flowers page or if you want something else, just let us know and it will be organised. A local Ithacan hairdresser will make sure your hair is perfect for the day, and if there is a particular style you have seen, bring photographs with you, so that she can get it just right. sparkling wine can be enjoyed on the boat or at the wedding reception (or both!). If you would rather not have the boat ride, then it’s no problem - taxis can be arranged to take you from the ceremony to the reception.
