Gozo Wedding Venues – Venue scouting
Gozo is a tranquil haven and being only a 25-minute ferry trip from Malta, I decided to take a venue scouting trip over to the beautiful Maltese island. As you drive off the ferry and past the marina dotted with boats, down the winding country roads taking in the enchanting surroundings.
My first visit was a 10-minute drive to a 5 star hotel and spa resort. Spread over stunning countryside and surrounded by nature. The 17th century medieval Palazzo Palina that sits within the grounds of the hotel is a unique venue for your wedding.
Civil marriages can also be arranged by the sea at the hotel’s Seaview Restaurant. The private rocky beach, has been known for hundreds of years as ‘Kantra’ because of its wild beauty and clear waters. The venues offers breathtaking sea views. Hire the whole venue exclusively for your guests.
Next on my itinerary was a visit to a stunning farmhouse. The farmhouse has 5 bedrooms accommodating 10-12 people, which you can hire exclusively for your group. An intimate poolside Wedding reception is also possible around the pool. Located in Qala, which is home to several restaurants and bars in the picturesque central square, you will find absolute peace and tranquility.
I then went to view a terrace restaurant only 5 minutes drive from the farmhouse. You can hire the terrace exclusively for your wedding party, with stunning views over the marina, your guests will enjoy the delicious food and dancing under the stars.
Whilst here the owner offered me lunch to sample their menu. I had a sea bream with potatoes and vegetables whilst looking out oiver at the Blue Lagoon. The food was delicious and as you can see in the image below the best views.
I had a bit of spare time so decided to take a drive to Xlendi, a small fishing village with a breathtaking cliff backdrop and then onto Marsalform, a popular coastal resort on the North of the Island.
The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Blessed Virgin of Ta‘ Pinu is a Roman Catholic minor basilica and national shrine located some 700 metres (2,300 ft) from the village of Għarb on the island of Gozo, the sister island of Malta. The church is dedicated to the Blessed Virgin of Ta‘ Pinu.
My final stop on the way back to the ferry stop was Ta Frenc, an award-winning, fine-dining restaurant set in an old farmhouse. The venue can hold weddings of up to 300 people using a combination of the tree-lined private garden, the wine cellar. State of the art all-weather structure which can be closed up in the event of bad weather.
Gozo is a romantic hideaway begging to be discovered.
