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 and asked whether I would be up for filming their wedding I had to do some extensive googling as I’d never heard of it before. But now I have to say that I’m in love with 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 yet.
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!
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 and Jackie and her family were trying to get ready for the wedding whilst taking care of small children at the same time. But this really set a precedent for the day in one respect. The day was truly about family. This 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 felt as if, important as this wedding was to them, that having this group of people, in this beautiful location and enjoying life together. That this was what it was really about for them.
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 outside a beautiful little chapel in the corner of the bay. Now 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… Unless that is, you had 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.
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.
