Greek Island – Rhodes
Weddings in Rhodes can take place in a wide choice of memorable locations. The most popular venue in Rhodes is St Paul’s Bay at the foot of the Acropolis in Lindos and this gets booked up a long time in advance. One of our favourite locations is Kallithea Springs with its exquisite architecture and serene atmosphere. Couples looking for beautiful views of the island can choose Filerimos. There are also many traditional chapels in beautiful natural surroundings outside which weddings can take place and we can now offer beach weddings too!
Wedding receptions in Rhodes can take place at a variety of traditional Greek tavernas, either in the historic centres of Lindos and Rhodes town or by the sea. Another popular option is a taverna with views of the Acropolis which looks spectacular when lit up at night. It is also possible to arrange a reception in the grounds of a luxury hotel or a romantic dinner for two in one of the most exclusive restaurants on the island.

Kathryn and David, St Pauls Bay Wedding & Reception, Rhodes, 12th September 2016
“We had the best day ever thanks to Ionian Weddings. St Paul’s Bay exceeded expectations and the venue took our breath away with it’s beauty. The photographer was amazing and took some wonderful natural photos for us. He was just like a mountain goat climbing rocks to get the best shots for us. The taverna was a revelation so thank you to our local coordinator for recommending it for us. It was a perfect spot with a lovely view. They gave us a terrific welcome and the best table in the house was reserved for us with a super buffet. We were only sorry that we could not stay longer but we had a cruise ship to catch! We cannot recommend Ionian Weddings highly enough – Thank you. We would like to send our love and thanks to Stacey, our local coordinator and the team for organising the best day ever at St Pauls Bay, Rhodes. It honestly exceeded our expectations and we will always be grateful to you.”

Nina & Adam, St Pauls Chapel Wedding and Lindos Pier Taverna Reception, Rhodes, August 2nd 2016
“The whole experience was everything we dreamed off and more. I could not have wanted any more from beginning to end. Beautiful location, great service, fabulous entertainment and planning of the highest order. Stacey went above and beyond my expectations, she was always contactable, knowledgable and has a genuine interest in ensuring we were happy and at ease throughout. Stacey ensured we had all the information we needed and gave us a detailed run down of what would happen from be ginning to end. Her professionalism and attention to detail was perfect and I would recommend her skills to anyone wanting a wedding abroad. I never at any point felt stressed or worried (except fitting into my dress after a few days all inclusive) about any aspect of the wedding as she had ensured all the planning was to my requests and guided me through the whole day prior to setting off. I don’t know what I would of done without her, couldn’t have asked for more. She never overloaded me with information and questions but ensured I was involved from beginning to end. Our local wedding coordinator was very informative and approachable at the pre wedding meeting. The day went exactly as expected and our coordinator ensured everything flowed perfectly. Thank you for making our wedding perfect!!”
Loren & James, St Pauls Bay Wedding and Reception, Rhodes, July 19th 2016
“The day was perfect! I could not have ask anymore of Stacey she was very professional at all times but really made me feel at ease like we had been friends for years!! Stacey was really professional and responded very quickly to all my queries. We can’t thank her enough and I will miss our emails and chats on the phone xx Our local coordinator was fantastic, very friendly and very organised extremely good at her job cannot recommend her enough xx I have already recommended your company and Stacey to alot of our friends and work colleagues xx Having an extremely busy life style we wanted the wedding of our dreams but without all of the fuss and added pressure arranging it, this was exactly what happened using this great company. I felt like she planned it as if it was her own wedding giving so much attention to detail in every area. And we had many giggles along the way!.”
