Hope everyone enjoyed the weekend! Today we’re bringing you to a truly magnificent island in our search for more amazing destination wedding venues. The island of Lefkada is situated off the west coast of Greece, connected to the mainland by a floating bridge at its northern tip. The word Lefkada means “white stone” after the limestone of the cliffs, and the island is surrounded by some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. There are direct flights to Preveza airport (half an hour from Lefkada) from the UK and internal flights from Athens take less than an hour. An ideal place in which to combine a destination wedding and honeymoon, guests traveling over to a wedding here will have the chance to travel to the other islands of Kefalonia, Ithaca and Meganissi with regular car ferries leaving from Lefkada. All three of these venues can be reserved through the destination wedding planning service Book On In Lefkada

Thea Resort

The resort is actually two villas that can accommodate 24 guests altogether. Located five minutes from the island’s capital town of Lefkada (or Lefkas) in the north-eastern area of the island, if you’re looking for a touch of luxury with astounding views this might be the venue for you. Several outdoor areas would suit a wedding reception including the stone patio surrounding the beautiful infinity pool and a green lawn terrace. The resort also has a stone barbecue and gym area.
