Paros’ Hidden Gem: A Secret Wedding Hideaway Beside the Aegean Sea
Exchanging vows beside the Aegean Sea is somewhat of a utopian wedding dream and when it comes to the Cyclades there’s certainly an abundance of spectacular wedding backdrops to choose from but Paros has a unique charm, a relaxed un-disturbed vibe crying out to host intimate events.
Known for its beaches and authentic Greek atmosphere, Paros hosts a hidden venue, a secret wedding gem poised on a family Estate displaying views across the Golden Beach Bay which you simply can not replicate.
The Secret View – A private wedding venue in the Cyclades
We chat to Stella, the owner of The Secret View to obtain an insight into this elusive section of the world and to understand what the hideaway can offer to couples planning their European island wedding.
Time to exploit the view
“The Secret View opened its doors back in 2016 to host its very first event- my wedding! It all started some years prior when my then “boyfriend” brought me to see the Chapel upon his family Estate of Fladakia, to admire the magical view. I clearly remember saying to him at the time; Are you serious? You really haven’t exploited this magnificent view?!”
And, that’s how the vision to host weddings began, with a desire for couples to witness this incredible backdrop on the most romantic day of their lives.
Countless Ceremony Areas
In total there are 4 differing ceremony locations within the 40 acre Estate, each providing spaces suitable for your guest number. For intimate soirees of up to 30 invitees there’s The Pergola, with its authentic stone walls and bamboo roof, the space offers welcome shade during heavy heats.
The Outdoor Salon suitable for up to 60, involves charming stone walls that can be transformed as tiered ceremony seating and a trendy beige canopy during summer days.
If you fancy a clear reminder you are walking down the aisle in Greek territory, you can host your symbolic ceremony in-front of the Estate’s very own Greek Chapel, a white-washed, blue roofed beauty with sufficient room for up to 85 guests.
The religious Chapel can marry Christian Orthodox couples but as for many UK couples usually the preference is a symbolic ceremony outside with the Chapel in full view.
And, for the pièce de résistance, the Estate’s lower Terrace is the largest ceremony area of up to 110 guests, offering breathtaking 180 degree Aegean Sea views. An impressive wedding stage on a quiet Greek island that will leave you speechless.
The ideal Paros wedding venue
The Secret View hosts weddings strictly on an exclusive basis and the venue can also be booked for a weekend or week long celebration. Intimate or micro weddings would be perfect here, including elopements due to the collection of smaller spaces alongside the much larger terraces. Set-ups can include; shaded cocktail spots, formal alfresco dining, lounge bar areas and dance floor with separate stage for a live band.
Close to the venue you and your guests can try wine tasting, fishing or take boat trips to the small islands across from Paros. The island is a great destination for your invitees to explore, relax and soak up the Greek sunshine.
Within close proximity you will also find a selection of boutique hotels and villas, that can shift from simple style to ultra luxury depending on your particular preference. We can also announce, that the Estate is currently transforming a traditional stable into a cute, romantic studio apartment. Perfect for either the wedding night or pre-wedding preparation for the bride and her friends.
Intimate delightful hideaway
The perfect couple for a Secret View wedding want a relaxed, laid-back vibe with an authentic luxe, rustic style.
