Way before the producers of the `Mamma Mia!` movie had even a twinkling of a notion to travel here and use Skopelos to embody the perfect romanticism of `Kalokairi`, our island was a popular choice for a wedding venue for couples coming from the mainland of Greece and further abroad.
It’s not hard to see why! The island simply exudes magic, with its dreamy landscapes, its pristine forests and sparkling seas. Everywhere you go, there are perfect backdrops for the most memorable wedding photos whilst, for the ceremony itself, you can choose a traditional service amongst the whitewashed elegance of the town or a low key, laidback wedding on a sun-drenched beach or a villa`s poolside.
Some couples choose Skopelos for their wedding to avoid all the hubbub and complexities of a big family `do` on their home ground, preferring instead to make their vows to each other in a simple and quiet way. Others might like to bring all their family and friends along with them to witness them tying the knot! Either way, the range of accommodation available will suit all tastes and needs of your party. In addition, the island has all the extra services you might wish to make your special day run smoothly and unforgettably - for all the right reasons! You can find professional photographers who will document your big day with both photographs and video and, for the wedding breakfast, you can choose from simple and traditional Greek tavernas, or restaurants that offer more upmarket menus and wines. There are several local florists for your bouquets, table decorations and buttonholes, not to mention hairdressers and beauticians for all the brides (and grooms) needs.
Also available are professional wedding planning services to help you with all the paperwork and legal necessities, leaving you to just relax and enjoy the day.
