A summer wedding at St. Paul's in Rhodes

Good afternoon everyone, I'm sorry for the delay in posting this week, however I am having laptop problems and in the process of moving from one to the other, so it was impossible to log on yesterday!

Today, I am posting a beautiful wedding (one of my all time favourites) that was held on Rhodes island at the picturesque chapel in the bay of St. Paul's in Lindos! This is a setting that many couples choose for their civil wedding, however this couple held their Greek Orthodox wedding here and travelled from New York along with guests from both the US and Karpathos in attendance!

The bride arrived at the church, I thought her gown was so elegant and refined!

I love this picture, the girls were in charge of handing out the parasols to the ladies attending the ceremony, it was so pretty to see all the women taking their seats and using their parasols to shade themselves!

The ceremony took place in the courtyard of the chapel overlooking the water

This is a detail of the kochlaki detail in the ground of the chapel, we had a half wreath placed on it to frame the area where the bride and groom stood to be married, it worked really well and was very pretty for the guests to look at!

I love this image, this is the fun part of Greek Orthodox wedding ceremonies and you can see everyone is enjoying it including the wonderful Priest who is such a lovely person!

I will post the absolutely stunning reception images on Thursday (it is a public holiday here today), it is really worth checking back for them as the setting was truly beautiful!
