  • Wedding in Gozo

    It was a warm, sunny day in August, where the deep blue sea glinted and sparkled, where the delicate fragrance of sea spray could be detected ever so slightly, and made it clear that you were in the heart of the Mediterranean. It seemed like an ordinary day on Malta’s sister island, Gozo. But it was not. It was a day that would be forever etched in Laura and Simon’s memory – it was their wedding day, and they chose to get married in the idyllic island of Gozo.

    The bride stunning in her gown, all the bridesmaids, pretty in pink and grey with radiant smiles, the groom and his men in white pants and grey shirts with little white dots, and the rest of the wedding party left the luxurious farmhouses they were staying at, at 5:30. The bridal car, an immaculate Bramwith Limousine took the bride, bridesmaids and the father of the bride to the beach where the ceremony would take place. The remainder of the wedding party boarded a traditional old Gozitan bus and made their way to the beach too.

    The beach looked like a scene from a storybook. A small secluded sandy beach with a white canopy and chairs also in white complemented the red carpet and the jaw dropping backdrop….the Mediterranean sea with the setting sun, giving the sky a warm honey glow. After the ceremony was over, drinks were served to celebrate the event and many photographs were snapped away.

    The whole party then made their way by traditional bus to another striking location for the festivities. The scene before their eyes blew them all away. The Salt Pans and surrounding area were transformed into an outdoor venue for them. They were dotted with candles which gave the place a romantic touch. The low beach wedding tables were impeccably laid and the small pink faux diamonds and silver butterfly stensils capriciously spread across the tables brought it all together. The seating area was Bedouin style, with carpets and a multitude of comfy cushions for everyone to just sit and relax. There was a mouth-watering barbeque, as well as plentiful antipastos and a luscious dessert scrutinously prepared and overseen by one of Gozo’s most renowned chefs. The meal would not be complete without some local wine and other spirits and drinks from the mobile bar.  Wedding speeches were done and a guitarist played some soft tunes in the background while everyone dined. Once dinner was over, and the wedding cake was cut, the DJ took over, and made sure that no one would be able to resist dancing the night away.

    It was undeniably an event to remember, at locations of incomparable beauty, an ineffaceable bespoke wedding.
