Wedding in Kallithea Springs Rhodes
Stavros & Jooyoung
Τhese two Londoners love to spend their summers in sun-dappled Rhodes Island in Greece, and we were so excited to hear their plans to tie the knot on their beloved summer destination. We wanted to give them something truly unique for their special day, and if you're an old silver-screen buff you'll instantly recognize Gustavo Gasperini's pebbled pathways, marble halls, and architectural drama of Kallithea Springs in Rhodes.
Established in 1929, this celebrated Italian SPA about 10km outside the town of Rhodes, Kallithea Springs was the attraction of the roaring era, and was conceived as a private members' haven, attracting a bevy of belle epoque socialites and well-born chaperoned belles who nestled in its luxurious chambers to discover elaborate treatments and soak up the healing powers of its red-water sources of wellness. The inescapable draw of the recently renovated modernist structure is a plus, but a summer wedding is not a summer wedding without a view of the ocean and saltwater scents drifting in on the breeze. Now add in the Oscar-worthy seascape, the chamber of the Rotonda and the formidable lines of palms overlooking an indigo bay and there you have it, a perfect "I do" niche for our beautiful couple and their 150 guests.
Imbibing the glamor of the Kallithea Springs heyday Stavros and Jooyoung's wedding in the leafy al fresco terrace was festooned with seas of fairy lights and lush romantic blooms, arrangements of peonies and garden roses tucked in greenery to channel old-world romance and the elegance of the couple's venue. Swept by the rhythm of a band playing all night and firework displays the newlyweds and their merry crowd sailed onwards to their new life, less ordinary.
