If you have been dreaming of a beach wedding then the coastline of Lefkas offers some great locations where we can arrange for you to hold your ceremony next to the azure blue waters of the Ionian Sea.
Locations for your Beach Wedding on Lefkas
If you are looking to have a private day away from the crowds which the main, big beaches attract then we have two perfect locations for you, the secluded beaches of Gerakas and Lygia.
Gerakas is close to Nikiana on the East coast and is only accessible by boat. Suitable for small and large weddings of up to 100 people. It is unspoilt by buildings and backed by evergreen shrubs. The view outlooks a beautiful expanse of aquamarine blue sea. Due to mooring access weddings here use the Ionian Star cruise boat.
Weddings at Agios Ioannis are combined with a wedding cruise on the Ionian Star

Lygia is a new find for us for 2016 and beyond. We are constantly searching for beautiful locations with jetty access as we know our clients love to have a cruise as part of their wedding day. This beach is very quiet all summer long and has a backdrop of lush green vegetation and slanting white rocks.
Weddings at Lygia are combined with a wedding cruise on the MS Christina or Ionian Star
Other beaches on Lefkas
There are many other beaches on Lefkas and Meganisi and depending on the month and/or time of day you are planning to marry we can offer advice on which are the best locations for you to consider. Even for high season we have a few secret locations in our little black book!
North coast: Agios Ioannis | Santa Mavra – dramatic beaches with sunset, old windmills and the castle
East coast: Nikiana | Pergiali | Nidri – Beautiful backdrop of the private islands, mainland and Kalamos
South coast: Afteli | Amouso | Vasiliki – Views of Arkoudi, Ithaka and Kefalonia
North West coast: Pefkoulia | Kathisma | Agios Nikitas | Kalamitsi – Sunsets and endless blues sea
South West coast: Porto Katsiki | Egremni | Gialos – Lefkada’s most famous beaches
Egremni & Gialos beaches – Due to winter damage there is no road access to either of these beaches in summer 2016. We can arrange for you to visit for a photoshoot by private boat charter if you would like either of these locations.
How to have sunsets and scenery for your special day…
We find the east coast is popular for wedding dinners and has varied lush green scenery but that our clients want to have the dramatic west coast sunsets too! You will see photographs in our gallery from clients who have a beautiful range of photographs covering the all the island locations.
Why is this? At Greek weddings the ceremony takes place early evening leaving little time for scenic photographs, so usually another shoot is arranged for a separate day. The couple can then have the benefit of wedding photographs from all over Lefkas and capture the amazing sunset in their favourite West coast locations. We think this is a lovely idea and the perfect solution to having everything you want for your wedding!
