Intrinsically beautiful – getting married in Gozo
We have all heard about the Azzure window in Dwejra Gozo, how mother nature created this natural beauty and equally destroyed it within seconds. It is indeed sad, however Gozo is not just about the Azure window, it offers much more than just this and if you are looking for paradise in the Mediterranean than Gozo is the place for you. Gozo is the second largest island of the Maltese archipelago. A minuscule dot on the map, but large on history, culture and ambience. From spectacular sunsets over majestic cliffs, beautiful hand hewn saltpans which are still in use, a fortified city, pristine beaches and coves as well as temples which are as old as time, it is an idyllic setting for your wedding.
There are a choice of venues and one will definitely suit your style, there are farmhouses that may be used for the wedding celebrations after the ceremony, as well as being the place of residence for your guests, (In this case I would strongly suggest a cluster of farmhouses close to each other with a large outdoor space). Luxury spa hotels, Michelin star restaurants, private beaches, museums, art galleries and historic houses, your wedding organiser will help you set up various venue visits as well as food tasting.
Getting to Gozo is very easy, you may choose to land at the Malta International Airport and then book a transfer to the ferry, an approximate forty five minute drive, followed by a twenty minute ferry crossing which docks at Mgarr harbour Gozo. Or you might opt to catch a seaplane which departs from the Grand Harbour and lands at Mgarr harbour. Both choices are great ways to travel, I find that I start to unwind as soon as I set foot on the ferry. Gozo is a place of sunshine, colours and peacefulness, a serene gem in the middle of the blue seas.
Gozo is an island you will definitely fall in love with.
