Beautiful Wedding in Filerimos Monastery, Greece

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

Today I am featuring a wedding that SP Weddings organised at the beginning of May on a beautiful spring day. The Greek Orthodox wedding took place in a stone built monastery called Filerimos, which is considered one of the must see sites when visiting the island of Rhodes, so of course this is an amazing spot to hold the wedding ceremony!

I love the entrance to the church, up these stone steps amongst the fir trees, it always sets the scene for the prettiest pictures!
The couple opted for a pair of olive trees decorated with fuschia roses for the entrance to the church, I do feel that this setting can take these very bright colours, although white is always so elegant against this background.
The ceremony was beautiful, the wedding party consisted of about 35 guests and was the perfect size for a quiet and intimate ceremony!

The newlyweds leaving the church!

The reception meal was held at a 5 star hotel in the Ixia area, the restaurant we hired out exclusively, the couple played their own music on CD's that they had brought with them!   The evening ended with the couple cutting their wedding cake and throwing the bouquet!
