Choose Your Ideal Ceremony!
The majority of weddings held here in Greece by non-Greek nationals are civil weddings. These can be held at especially nominated locations, approved by the local authorities, and include Kallithea Springs & Spa, St. Sophia, St. Apostolos in Faliraki, St. Paul’s in Lindos, Filerimos, Sentido Apollo Blue and other luxury hotels, selected beaches etc. Civil weddings are both legally binding and recognised by your country of residence.

Greek Orthodox weddings can be held at any Greek Orthodox Church in Rhodes when at least one of the happy couple is of the Greek Orthodox faith and the other has been baptised or christened in the Christian faith.
Catholic Weddings: At this present time, and until further notice, Catholic weddings are held solely at the church of Santa Maria in the New City of Rhodes. In order to facilitate the bureaucracy involved, it is normally requested that the couple hold a civil wedding in advance of the church ceremony.

Should you be of another denomination or religion and have the advantage of being able to have a wedding official of your own in attendance, then we are able to coordinate your wedding at numerous interesting and exciting locations, other than those commonly used. Weddings at sea are particularly popular in this option.

To make this most romantic time of your life even more unforgettable and special, we design a unique theme for the wedding according to our couple’s wishes.
