When we first met with Charlotte and John, we instantly fell for their warm personality and aura. In a way, it felt as if we already knew each other because it was like interacting and communicating with friends. To them having a romantic beach wedding in Lindos, Rhodes, one of the most gorgeous locations in the Dodecanese islands was their way of meeting halfway with their lovely families and friends coming over from the U.K. as the two of them have recently moved across the pond.

With the Acropolis towering radiant on the cypress-silvered hill, and the sugar-cube houses of the whitewashed town tumbling below it towards the aquamarine bay, Lindos is a magical warren of hidden alleys packed with ornate houses of long-vanished sea captains and carries that soft Mediterranean feel one can only find in Hollywood movies. Their gorgeous beach location transformed into a perfect little niche for their September "I do's" strewn with lush greenery, white florals, and fairy lights. We love the statement of white on a classically romantic wedding fete and we were hands down in love with everything Charlotte and John are about.

We wanted our bride to feel special so we booked a lovely old captain's home for her preparations where she got the chance to share some incredible moments with her mother who she misses so much. Charlotte's bridesmaids and friends joined our bride for a glass of bubbly in a picture perfect balcony while her dad put on his dapper fedora to escort Charlotte to the aisle in the wedding tunes of a violin. The entire day rolled by seamlessly as from the couple's beautiful ceremony to their arrival at Melenos Suites, one of the most elegant boutique hotels in Rhodes overlooking the teal waters of Lindos Bay. Τhis boutique hotel is one of the most beautiful venues in Lindos village! Offering two different balconies, this can be used for a ceremony and dinner on the different areas or maybe visit the famous St.Paul’s chapel in Lindos bay for your civil or symbolic wedding and then walk through the village to reach the Melenos Hotel. The options are many and when starting the planning process the venues will be the first thing to analyze. Securing the dates and sending your save the dates will be the first important heartbeat of your planning process!

Enjoy their fete through the lens of their super talented destination wedding photographer Sotiris Tsakanikas and have an inspired wedding weekend!
