Blessed by the Sun God Helios, Rhodes has an average of 300 days of glorious sunshine every year, which is what you want to hear when you’re planning a wedding. A land of contrasts offering secluded coves, golden sandy beaches, lively nightlife and centuries of history, it's little wonder that Rhodes is such a popular wedding destination! Civil wedding ceremonies can take place in a variety of venues, which we’ve given you a taster of below, ranging from town halls, luxurious hotels and quaint tavernas.
Stroll arm in arm through the narrow, cobbled streets of Rhodes with your loved one and explore the impressive medieval old town with its impressive walls and magnificent fortress. Kalathos is perfect for those couples seeking peace and quiet with its long shingle beach while Lindos offers dazzling whitewashed houses, crystal clear waters and is crowned with a magnificent ancient Acropolis.
Please Note: For weddings in Rhodes, the minimum residency is 7 days and due to new paperwork procedures, the wedding couple must reside in resort for at least 3 days after the wedding.
Renewal of Vows
Why not renew your wedding vows in lovely Rhodes? The ceremony will be performed by the registrar of Lindos, costing the same as a civil wedding ceremony. The only documents required are your original marriage certificate and copies of your passport details. We can arrange this when the holiday duration is at least 7 nights. Renewal of Vows (civil) can also take place in the Kallithea Spa or in Lindos, at St Paul’s Bay, Atrium Palace and Lindos Mare Hotel.
