The Reception.....Part 1

Good afternoon all,

Continuing with the post on the fantastic wedding that took place in Lindos village in Rhodes last May, we move on to the most fabulous part of the day and that is of course the reception/party! The venue chosen for this was a 16th century mansion in the centre of the village offering incredible views across the bay and the castly overhead, it really doesn't get any better than this!

The bride & groom make their entrance to the reception!

We set out pictures of the guests on a washing line that also served as table number cards, guests loved the idea!

A jazz band flown in all the way from Lebanon played the bride and groom's favourite song, "fly me to the moon" at dusk, this was a surprise for the groom, who couldn't believe his eyes when he saw them!

The guestbook and favour table welcomed guests as they made their way in to the garden. The small ouches contained three freshly baked cookies and were a great success!


The food was incredible both to look at and to eat, we ensured that the presentation was very rustic in order to fit in with the surroundings!


The tables were oblong with rustic wooden chairs and a centrepiece of lavender and a second of peach peonies, roses, hydrangea's and fruit, they were so fitting to the venue!

I have one final update of this wedding that I will post tomorrow, that is of the dancing and festivities that took place after dinner, plus the surprise the bride's sisters planned that is soooooo cool!!!!
