Dreamy destination wedding in Vis, Croatia

Although Croatia has always been on the list, the main reason behind our trip was a friends wedding. A couple of hardcore watersports junkies and committed travel bugs, the bride and groom were never going to settle for a wedding at home in the UK and planned a cross-island relay culminating with their big day in Vis. In true reflection of their incredible personalities, the whole week was completely over the top, a mission to get to and absolutely, uh-ma-god sensational in every way.

The venue itself belongs in a fairytale - a Fort set high on the top of a hill spreading precariously close to cliffs on each side, which fall away dramatically to stunning views out to sea, while gentle waves lap the rocks below.

The set up for the big day was straight out of a wedding magazine with breathtaking views in every direction, old stone terraces hosting tables set for the wedding feast, while trees lit with fairy lights and lanterns illuminated beautiful, pastel details at every step. Pinterest eat your heart out. The happy couple had left no ancient stone unturned in planning little surprises and personal touches for their guests. On arrival, their favorite drink was served on the roof terrace of the main fort, where we hung out with the dashing man of the moment.

Polaroid photos of every guest strung from the trees and handmade signage led the way to the ceremony where beautifully designed orders of service (and this is my favorite bit) KAZOOS lay on every seat to be used during the song – You’re Just Too Good to be True – GENIUS!

Thanks to Danni Scouser for the vid!

A beautiful and emotional ceremony pronounced the two legends man and wife and we moved onto drinks and dinner, backlit by the most sensational of sunsets...

Before moving onto some dancing....
