Gozo is a dream location for weddings, especially if you want something intimate and unique – it promises the ultimate island nuptials.
Imagine this: you arrive by private yacht with your wedding party, and dock in the pretty bay of Mgarr ix-Xini (a spot made world-famous by the recent film By The Sea, starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie). Next, you take a classic car up along the winding coast, stopping for snaps in the open countryside and with views of the sea, before arriving at the pretty chapel of your choice for a ceremony that’s steeped in history. Finally, you arrive for the reception of your dreams – perhaps a sit-down dinner in an award-winning restaurant, or in a winery with stunning opens vistas and an intriguing menu of fresh, local produce. This really is the recipe for the ultimate Mediterranean island wedding.
And, when you tie the knot in Gozo, none of this is far from reality. As a tiny island in the middle of the Mediterranean, Gozo is a truly unique location – one boasting a history that spans 7,000 years, as well as a cosmopolitan atmosphere that makes it as exciting as it is beguiling.
There are so many incredible destinations where you could hold your wedding in Gozo. To start with, there are many hotels and restaurants with venues that are perfectly geared up for ceremonies (whatever the size), followed by receptions.
Of course you may want something completely different, and this is where Gozo really comes into its own. Every nook and cranny could be transformed into a magical location with some creativity – and a wedding planner will be able to guide you. So, from a ceremony aboard a yacht, on a beach or on the Citadel bastions, to a reception in one of the iconic museums or in a picturesque town piazza, the options are endless.
Plus, when you’re planning an intimate wedding in Gozo, one of the most fun aspects is choosing your accommodation. We recommend considering a traditional farmhouse – Gozo’s answer to a chalet in the Alps, or a cottage in the Scottish Highlands. These authentic dwellings can also be chosen based on the needs of your wedding – some sleep 12 guests or more with their own swimming pools, while others are more intimate and focus on having incredible views that would look stunning in your wedding photography. A farmhouse provides the perfect place to get ready on your big day with your bridal party, and is also a lovely, homely location for you to leave from as you head to your ceremony. Plus, what could be more fun than sharing a house with your friends and family before embarking on the biggest adventure of your life?
