Jackie and Ged had an incredible Rhodes wedding in Lindos and I was lucky enough to be a part of it.
Lindos, Rhodes. An incredibly Picturesque town. Steeped in history and surrounded by breathtaking beauty. What better place to have a Rhodes wedding than in Lindos? I have to admit, when Jackie and Ged first contacted me, I had to do some googling. I’d never heard of Lindos. But now I have to say that I love the place.
This is why I love doing destination wedding videos as I get to see parts of the world that may not have made my bucket list otherwise.
Lindos has some of the most incredible views and some of the most breathtaking sights I’ve seen. Even on the days that I wasn’t strictly working I took my camera anyway as I didn’t want to miss anything. But this isn’t a travelogue, this is a wedding Blog. So onto the wedding!
The wedding day
Jackie and Ged had probably the most chilled out wedding I’ve ever been to. Probably the most hectic it got all day was when I arrived at the hotel. Jackie and her family were trying to get ready for the wedding whilst taking care of small children at the same time. But this set a precedent for the day in one respect. The day was truly about family.
It was an intimate wedding with no more than 30 guests. But they were all guests that Jackie and Ged really wanted to be there. Their closest family and friends. At times it felt as if this was what they really valued. Important as this wedding was to them, It was all about gathering these important people together. In this beautiful location. To celebrate this beautiful day.
After preparations were made at the Lindos Mare hotel we jumped on a bus and headed over the stunning St Paul’s bay. Here Jackie and Ged had a short ceremony conducted by the mayor himself! This was outside a beautiful little chapel with a backdrop of the bay.
Jackie had been reliably informed that it was going to be very difficult to get all of the guests to the meal from the bay. So she’d come up with a solution. If you’re in a bay and the venue is on the beach, get a boat. Now in my book it’s not a holiday unless you get a boat trip so I was rather pleased to have the opportunity to take the scenic route. No one was seasick either, which was great as no one wants that on their wedding video.
We arrived at the lovely Skala beach teverna where the group spent the rest of the evening eating and drinking and dancing whilst the staff brought out some really rather wonderful variations on Greek cuisine (So good in fact that I went back the following day for dinner as well). All of this while the sun set across the bay from us drawing night in on the most perfect Rhodes wedding.
Congratulations guys and thanks so much for having me.
