Vis Wedding Photographer + VideographerSuzanne & KrissClassy Vis wedding photography & videography on Fort George

As a Vis wedding photographer + videographer, we have to say that Vis is a pretty magical island. It’s located in the middle of the Adriatic sea, pretty far on the way from Croatian coast to Italy, and it feels like you’re very far away from the mainland. Everything is dependent on few daily ferries that run for two and a half hours to Split and life organizes around the giant ship sailing into the small harbour.

But the magic comes from that self-sufficiency. Vis is a pretty large island, so while you can find various beaches all around the island, amazing blue caves and smaller islets in all directions, when you get to the inside of the island it’s all different. You can find an old airstrip surrounded by vineyards, and pine forests intertwined with fields where local produce is grown. (And boy does the local produce taste amazing!)

I took a scooter to explore the island and it’s an amazing way to feel the breeze on your skin, all the summer scents and truly take in the island. The only problem? I was stopping every 100 meters to take a photo! Each trip took forever!

Here’s a few recommendations. Take a hike (a literal, serious hike) to the Stiniva beach. It will leave you breathless! Take a sip of cold Vugava, a local grape variety from which the namesake white wine is made. Try Komiška pogaca, a delicious local kind of bread filled with anchovies and other secret ingredients.

While on the subject, definitely visit the charming town of Komiža, right on the other side of island. Take an excursion to Biševo island and see the blue cave along the way. And of course, eat at Lola bar in town Vis.
Here are more ideas if you want.

The highlight of my trip was, of course, the wedding. That’s what a Vis wedding photographer & videographer does, after all. If you can’t wait, see what I recorded below. If you can, I need to tell you that the venue for the ceremony and dinner reception was the amazing Fort George. It’s a mighty fort on top of a hill overlooking the town of Vis, its bay and open Adriatic sea. Once it was a strategic position, and today it’s just a stunning, amazing view all around!

First there was the ceremony in the stone atrium, then the cocktails on its stone terrace, followed by fine dining under its pine trees finished off with dancing in the recessed wooden dancefloor.

The whole experience was amazing and I highly recommend Vis for your wedding in case you’re finding it hard to decide. The whole thing was planned and decorated by the amazing Dalmatia Events, a crew I can’t recommend highly enough!
