Love Stories

Published by : Marlen on 16 January 2024

Love stories on the big screens may shape and colour our own choice of where and how we get married abroad. Greece has a great collection of venues to say ‘I do’ and honeymoon too!

Read all about it in the January & February 2024 Love Our Wedding Magazine, pages 86-87, plus our advert is on page 89!

During the last months of 2023 we were all serenaded by Abba songs for ITV’s theatre competition, Mamma Mia! “I Have a Dream”. Not filmed in Skiathos but an equally gorgeous Greek island setting, charming Corfu!

With the expertise, and advice of both Planet Weddings and Planet Holidays, couples can ensure their wedding day has plenty of ‘wow’ factor, and that it really is all the couple wish for, plus a bit more too.

As an AITO specialist tour operator, Planet Weddings ( offer the perfect choice for couples looking to get married in some truly unique venues in Greece.

There is great choice in beachside weddings, luxurious hotels, chapels by the sea, unusual venues with stunning views surrounded by vineyards and much more!

From small and intimate to big and fabulous, from luxurious to rustic - receptions can be silver service or buffet style. Planet Weddings can supply couples with a list of what they need to consider before making their final decision. They can also, through sister company Planet Holidays book all the flights and accommodation, organise private transfers and transport on the day. Plus for those wanting a dream-come-true honeymoon Greek Island Hopping, Planet Holidays are the specialist that can suggest perfect combinations. For example: Skiathos, Skopelos and Alonissos, to Crete and Santorini combined with Ios, Milos, Sifnos, Folegandros, Paros, Naxos plus any more islands. Not forgetting Halkidiki, Greece’s northern mainland, which also offers stunning landscapes and luxurious places to stay, and get married. For wine lovers another part of the mainland worth considering is the Peloponnese.

The all-important time and date of the wedding ceremony, and all the trimmings that will make it a truly memorable day, rests in the expert hands of Planet Weddings UK, and  the resort wedding co-ordinators. Months to consider a wedding in Greece range from May to October. The further south you chose, such Crete, Rhodes and Santorini, the earlier and later in the year you can opt to get married in Greece. Popular June and September book up well in advance, so don’t leave it to the last minute, although Planet can offer alternatives on lesser-known islands too such as Amorgos and Lefkas.

Experts are on hand to help with unbiased advice, every step of the way and Planet Weddings motto is ‘your wedding, your way’ !

Planet Weddings also offer ‘Finishing Touches’ for the wedding day so that couples can ensure it is as individual as they are too! From helping couples chose the right photographer and videographer, to flowers, cake, transport, decorations, fireworks, and musicians. 

Arrangements can cover all bases, plus Planet Weddings resort co-ordinator is on hand to ensure that all the extras are delivered on time and to the specification that has been agreed by the couple. Any last-minute changes that may be requested? There’s no problem with those too!
