Destination wedding in paradise!

Destination weddings allow couples to live their dream wedding ceremony in a stunning location and celebrate surrounded by their closest friends and family members creating long-lasting memories for both the couple and their guests.

If you’re looking for a unique way to say ‘I do’ , a destination wedding in a romantic paradise that affords dramatic and unique locations for photography is ideal. For this purpose, I recommend Halkidiki in Northern Greece! Halkidiki’s three fjord-like bays with emerald beaches and coves, imposing mountains, gorgeous sunsets, delicious cuisine and high-quality level of hospitality makes this blessed place an ideal location for your dream destination wedding! I am personally considering Halkidiki as a place to host my own wedding, so this year I did a little bit of scouting of my own with my fiancé.

When spending our holidays with my fiancé at Pomegranate Wellness Spa Hotel in breathtaking Halkidiki in Greece this year, we were privileged to witness a symbolic wedding of a Russian couple during sunset. The symbolic or blessing wedding ceremony is becoming more and more popular every year. Compared to a  legal ceremony (civil), the symbolic ceremony is not legally binding apart from the love and commitment between the couple. Many couples may have already taken a registry office legal wedding prior to a symbolic ceremony.

From the Olympic Games to managing a 5-star Spa Hotel!

This summer I had the pleasure to meet with Anastasios Mexas the General Manager of Pomegranate Wellness Spa Hotel in Halkidiki, Greece. We sat down for a cappuccino freddo by the pool and we also walked around the impressive 5-star hotel talking about this background and how he found himself running the prestigious Pomegranate Wellness Spa Hotel, which is all about an atmosphere of ‘relaxed elegance’ for demanding guests.

First, I am always curious to get an insight into the person sitting across me by asking about their background. Anastasios takes the opportunity to highlight some of his careers early steps. He was born on the island of Corfu -one of the most beautiful islands of the Mediterranean- and from an early age showed interest in the tourism and hospitality sector. At the age of sixteen, he got a job as an assistant waiter at a French hotel in Corfu. This experience further strengthened his interest in a career in hospitality and after completing his army service, he studied for a year at the Alpine Center in Switzerland, one of the most reputable hospitality focused schools in Europe, and also got his Bachelor’s degree in Switzerland. He then completed internships at Schweizerhof hotel in Germany and Mövenpick in Switzerland and worked at one of the most elegant restaurants in Zurich for two and half years before returning to Greece in 1993.
