Island Hop Your Way to Saying… I Do – Olympic Holidays

Tuesday, May 17, 2022 0


Whether you’re looking to plan your very own Mamma Mia! style wedding, simply want to escape a deux or with a small number of friends and family to support you, look no further than the Greek Islands and the ‘Island Specialist’ tour operator, Olympic Holidays.


Michael Vinales, Managing Director, Olympic HolidaysThe Greek Islands each have their own vibe, views, charm, cuisine, jaw dropping sunsets and beaches, you really are spoilt for choice, but at the same time – where do you start trying to figure out where to go for your big day. Well, my top tip, don’t just limit yourself to one island. Variety is the spice of life and island hopping is taking off. It’s a fantastic way to combine a dream wedding and honeymoon in one fell swoop and there really is something for everyone – big, small, budget or blow out and we’re excited to be working with our trade partners to help turn dreams into reality for numerous happy couples.”


Olympic Holidays are specialists in co-ordinating a wedding, honeymoon, island hop combo.  Whether it’s a religious, civil, symbolic or same sex wedding, their dedicated team can help coordinate the lot.


Take Santorini for example, with its Instagram worthy, archetypal properties built into the cliffs, instantly recognisable whitewashed facades, blue-domed churches and spectacular sunsets, it’s arguably one of the most romantic of all the Greek Islands and once the nuptials have taken place, is perfect to combine with an island hop over to Mykonos, Naxos or Paros. There’s also Rhodes, with its rich classical heritage, basking in over 300 days of glorious sunshine a year and just a short hop from more intimate island gems such as Karpathos, Halki, Symi and Kos. These smaller islands provide the perfect escape for newlywed couples to start their lives together and are home to all types of accommodation from self-catering apartments through to luxury retreats.


If you dream of a barefoot wedding with sand between your toes, The Princess Andriana on Rhodes provides just that. Sunset weddings don’t come much better than at the Santorini Gem with magnificent views of the Santorini Caldera, a large volcanic crater off the island’s coast or the Amada Colossus on Rhodes which overlooks one of the finest beaches on the island. For charming chapel weddings, look no further than Rhodes’ very own St Sophia, perched high on a hill or Aghia Fotini at the Pyrgos restaurant on Santorini. Or, if you’re looking for a truly traditional affair, St Pauls Chapel or the Kalithea Spa in Rhodes with its beautiful gardens, mosaic and marble floors won’t disappoint.
