Elopement and Intimate Weddings at Heliades Villas

COVID-19 pandemic has thrown a wrench in the plans for those who were planning big weddings with hundreds of guests. But life does not stop with COVID-19. In reality when you plan to tie the knot during this difficult period, you are creating your own special love story that you will remember forever. You can still get to experience the wedding of your dreams. The only thing that COVID-19 changed is that you cannot plan that “big wedding” with hundreds of guests that you would probably don’t even know… Let’s say it out loud: “who really needs big crowds to share one of the most intimate days of his life?”

This is why perfect micro weddings and romantic elopement weddings in intimate venues are back in fashion. And Heliades Villas in Andros Greece are offering exactly that. An Estate with three unforgettably romantic villas with amazing view over the Aegean Sea where you can tie the knot in absolute privacy and in the company of the people you really want by your side on that special day. Your families and friends.

Covid-19 restrictions have challenged the special events industry to start thinking outside the box and innovate in an effort to adapt to current times. And that is why the industry from wedding venues and wedding planners, to caterers and photographers have adopted to all the current rules and restrictions.

Seems that you do not have to postpone your special day due to the pandemic, you just need to find the perfect spot to host an intimate celebration with those nearest and dearest to you in compliance with WHO guidelines.

 You can have the most picturesque outdoor wedding ceremony during sunset and spend your honeymoon visiting the Andros Island amazing beaches and sights or spend time by the private pool of your own Cycladic Villa.

Our luxurious intimate wedding packages are not to be missed. You select the time and date that suits you the most and we will provide you with the extraordinary opportunity to experience a stylish, romantic and most authentic wedding.

The difference between Elopement and Intimate Weddings

There is a difference between an elopement and intimate weddings. To understand these differences is what makes the actual planning of the wedding easier for both the host and the couple.

Both types of wedding ceremonies are simple and romantic and involve few or no guests. As you consider the type of ceremony you want, understanding the difference between an elopement and an intimate wedding leads to a better understanding of the difference regarding pricing and availability.

Elopement is when the couple runs away and marries secretly, either alone or with a few good friends. The guest list is small—usually under 10 people. In fact, some elopement ceremonies have no guests except for the couple and the witnesses.

An intimate wedding is no secret. The couple chooses to marry in a romantic spot accompanied by a close circle of family and friends.

Speaking of guests, at Heliades Villas can host up to 26-30 guests in the three Villas of our Estate, but in case the number of your guest list exceeds this number we could help you find accommodations nearby.

Intimate weddings make for great destination weddings. When it comes to locations for a destination wedding, Andros Island in Greece is ideal. From the historic to the captivating Cycladic Island beauty, you’re sure to find Heliades Villas as a romantic setting that provides the perfect ambiance for your intimate wedding.
