Do you dream of a beach wedding abroad? If yes, Samos could be perfect for you.
You’ll find a treasure trove to choose from, secluded coves with soft sand to sink your feet into to more hidden away coves that you’ll only find if you choose to explore. Samos has beaches surrounded by forests that fall into the sea below, to rocky outcroppings with dramatic cliff faces, but what they all have in common is the amazing clear azure sea.
Samos is ideal for anyone searching for a lesser known island where you can still experience a authentic Greece, from traditional villages and towns, untouched surroundings, local cuisine and lashings of Greek charm. An island where the local’s can’t wait to welcome you to explore their rich, diverse island which is also one of the greenest in Greece.
When to have your wedding in Samos
Samos enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate. The island warms up in April, followed by consistent sunny and warm days in May. Heat peaks towards the end of June and throughout July/August, but Meltemi winds help to cool hot days and humid nights. September weather is much like June, and with the cooler days starting at the end of September. The month of October although still warm during the day, sees a return of cooler days and evenings and by November winter has arrived.
We plan weddings in Samos from late April to the middle of October.
