Perhaps the only factor that can make a wedding venue in Lefkada even more impressive than one with great views or beach access, is if it has historical significance too!
Without-a-doubt, historical significance adds a deeper meaning to an already meaningful day, not to mention the impressive architecture and the feeling of nostalgia!
The beautiful capital of the island, Lefkada town, constitutes a characteristic architecture developed during the years of Venetian occupation. The architecture of Lefkada is different in the capital and the villages.
One of the most exquisite buildings of Lefkada old town is the Municipal Library. Tucked away in Plateia Markou this beautiful neoclassical building has an illustrious history. Built in the late 19th century as the residence of the Zoulinos family it later housed the National Bank, before being aquired by the Greek State and becoming the home of the library in 1953.
Max and Georgia chose a marriage blessing alongside their civil ceremony and we arranged this with the very genial Rev Jules of Holy Trinity Church, Corfu. The blessing took place in the gardens of the historic library building and allowed them to have the significance they wanted for the wedding ceremony with a relaxed formality.
Looking for a historic Lefkada venue for your wedding preparations?
Why not treat yourself for your bridal preparation with a little luxury at one of the small boutique hotels in Lefkada’s beautifully restored old town. The historic Lefkada architecture and buildings will be woven into the backdrop of your photography as part of your wedding story.
Where to stay? I personally love the Rose Suite at The Aigli 1850 for a mansion house vibe and the Rock n Roll Suite at Secret Boutique Hotel for a contemporary feel. In Katouna village enjoy the vintage vibes at Pavezzo Country Retreat, a boutique hotel cleverly hidden in the old streets of the village.
