Wedding on the island of Rhodes: a summer fairy tale!
This island has become the most popular destination for sea holidays in Greece among tourists from Russia. Many people go there for symbolic or official marriage ceremonies, because this wonderful island has everything-beautiful wedding venues, low prices for numerous services, beautiful nature and the purest turquoise sea.
There are so many beautiful places in Rhodes that it is not easy to choose the perfect venue. Our review will help you make a choice and hold the perfect dream wedding!
Near the fashionable party resort of Faliraki is a very beautiful secluded Bay of the Holy Apostles. The small blue-and-white Church of the same name is surrounded on all sides by the sea. Since the venue is very small, secluded and quiet, it is suitable for couples who are celebrating a wedding without guests or only with a couple of the closest people. The place is amazing, where you will feel at one with nature and love each other even more, saying the words of an oath against the background of Greek landscapes, under the arch of a cozy little Church. By the way, ceremonies in Greece often take place in front of the Church, and not in it: only Orthodox Greeks have the right to get married inside. But it is not forbidden to conduct symbolic ceremonies in front of Greek temples.
The city of Lindos in Rhodes is as if created for lovers. This place is ideal for a honeymoon - endless narrow streets, romantic taverns with terraces on the roofs, pink-flowered white walls of typical Greek houses and stunning sunsets against the backdrop of the ancient Acropolis. On Lindos, you can hold a wedding in the Bay of St. Paul the Apostle. This little-compared place attracts romantics from all over the world - every year lovers from all over the world sign an official marriage and hold symbolic ceremonies here. The only drawback is the excessive popularity of the place. In high season, ceremonies are held here every 45 minutes! But you are guaranteed magical views of the Bay and the Acropolis, the background in the form of a sea of amazing color and gorgeous Greek nature.

On the island of Rhodes, a couple from Russia can hold an Orthodox wedding ceremony. One of the places that are ideal for such a ceremony - an ancient temple Filerimou the mother of God. The temple is located in a very picturesque place on mount Filerimos, surrounded by cypresses and pines. The Church has two altars - Catholic and Orthodox, which makes the place truly unique. Think about it-this Church is 2000 years old! A Union made under the roof of such a temple will definitely be sacred and very strong.
Another wonderful option for a wedding is the small Church of Saint Sophia. It is cozy and picturesque, overlooking the Aegean sea and surrounded by flowers and trees. Plus, the Church is also located on the territory of the Esperos Village hotel, so you can have dinner right after the wedding in the hotel's restaurant.
