Just five kilometres from Malta’s mainland, the island of Gozo is a tranquil oasis ideally suited to host the wedding of your dreams. The hidden beaches, rolling hills and historical villages provide the perfect backdrop for your big day, and its alluring blend of amazing activities and laidback lifestyle will entice you from the moment you arrive.


The journey from the Maltese mainland provides you with the perfect opportunity to get your wedding off to a special start. For many the short trip is made via a simple ferry, this is both regular and affordable which makes it extremely convenient for guests making the trip. However for those wanting a more spectacular entrance for their big day why not ride waves and charter a yacht, zoom over in a speed boat or perhaps make a real splash by flying in by seaplane!


Gozo is commonly referred to as the Island of Calypso; a name that originates from the Greek mythological location of Ogygia in Homer’s Odyssey. In the legendary epic, it is said that on this island Ulysses was bewitched by the nymph Calypso and spent seven long years as a prisoner of love. The fabled cave which served as Ulysses’s home can still be visited today, perched in the cliff face overlooking Ramla l-Hamra, one of Gozo’s most spectacular beaches.

The island’s capital, Victoria (still called


Rabat by locals), is a delightful small town filled with narrow streets and sunlit squares. The church, with its ornate interior of marble, gilt and ebony, is one of the many spectacular places to say ‘I do’ and provides a picturesque and romance filled setting for your ceremony.
