The secret is out, Croatia is a sparkling jewel on the Mediterranean.

I take great pride in having known of Croatia’s beauty all my life. My dad’s family still resides on the breathtaking isle of Korčula. In recent years, it’s warmed my heart to see a sudden surge in couples flocking to my beloved Dalmatian Islands for their destination weddings.

Have you been pulled in by images of islands glimmering in the Adriatic Sea? Considering a Croatian wedding but not sure where to start? No one would blame you with over one thousand islands in this small, Mediterranean country. Let us give you a little tip: Hvar is a dream destination for getaway weddings, large or intimate.

Known as the sunniest island on the Mediterranean, you’re as close to guaranteed golden hour portraits as one could be. Imagine Venetian palaces overlooking the sparkling sea. Unspoiled nature and sunset sailing. Incredible beaches and sumptuous seafood.

To show you how truly romantic a Hvar wedding could be, a team of local vendors put together a stunning wedding editorial – photographed by Nina Anić – featuring some of the best wedding inspiration that Hvar has to offer.

Hvar is one of the most popular destinations for weddings in Europe and this styled shoot is a result of a joint project of local vendors from Croatia presenting the way they see Hvar, showing its rich heritage and exquisite offer of seaview wedding venues.

A large team of wedding industry colleagues in Croatia had joined together to create this unique story making it a true ‘community over competition’ campaign promoting our country. We found inspiration in the breathtaking scenery of the island, untouched nature, white stones of Venetian palaces and sun! Hvar is known for being the sunniest island in the Mediterranean and that’s precisely what you want on your wedding day! Outdoor venues, open spaces, Venetian terraces, lavender fields, Spanish fortress, organic food and superb local wines are surely key highlights on why one should choose to visit and get married in this piece of heaven.

The island of Hvar inspired us on so many levels to represent a perfect Mediterranean fairy tale wedding.

The colors we chose were there all along: various shades of blue to represent the Adriatic Sea, green as the pine forest surrounding the venue and golden accents to emphasize the sun as a key element to our story. White and blue flowers present a perfect harmony between pebble beaches and the sea, crucial for human existence on this island for centuries and consequently love, as a never-ending inspiration to all beauty.

Our bride is elegant and natural, very relaxed, enjoying the best time in the Adriatic with her groom looks very smart in his tailored-made suit by Martin Arbanas. She wears an elegant Millanova wedding dress and jewels from an artisan shop based on this island. We paid very special care to present world-leading fashion and lifestyle brands as well as local artisan work in order to create a unique design perfect for luxury beach weddings.

A gorgeous spread of local dishes and delicious sweets by Amfora Hotel, paired with colorful cocktails, best represent the Mediterranean cuisine and relaxed vibe of the venue and island completely. A gorgeous two-tier cake by artisan pastry shop Oš Kolač garnished with garden roses rounded the whole design celebrating love, youth and easy living in the Mediterranean.
