WE ARE VERY SOCIAL
The Internet has opened the door to a number of useful and exciting ways to research and plan your wedding day. Please visit our Blog or the social network sites below in order to find out even more about us……
Don’t let the name Lindos Weddings mislead you. We are able to offer weddings, vow renewals and commitment ceremonies at a wide variety of venues throughout the island. Although Lindos and some of its amazing traditional Chapels played host to some of our first ceremonies. if there is a venue on Rhodes worthy of your celebration, we are able to make all the necessary arrangements for you regardless of location..
It’s traditional in Greece for the Father of the Bride to write the Brides maiden name upon the sole of her shoe prior to her arriving at the ceremony. By the time the ceremony has concluded and the Bride has become a married woman, the maiden name will have been worn away symbolising a new start.
OUR OWN WEDDING DAY - 26TH JULY, 2004
How it all started
In common with many visitors to this magical location, after visiting for the first time back in the early 90’s we both fell in love with the people and place. Returning year after year, both to work and spend time with friends, the beautiful village of Lindos seemed to be the natural choice for the location of our own wedding a number of years ago.
Eventually with the time, local knowledge and contacts to enable us to tailor our own wedding we were married at the tiny chapel of Aghios Nicolas, overlooking Lindos Bay in July of 2004. It was a long road to travel, and at times we felt as if we might reconsider our plans completely and hold the ceremony in England. But our hearts were set on Lindos and we definitely did the right thing in persevering. All our family and friends, both Greek and English, agreed that it had been a wonderful day, so different from anything they had experienced before. We couldn’t have been happier. Many months of planning and organising had resulted in our dream wedding day.
A chance conversation a few days later sowed the seed of an idea. If we could organise such a successful event once, we could do so again. Couldn’t we? We had the ‘know how’ and contacts, we had the actual experience of arranging a wedding in Rhodes and due to the nature of our existing business commitments in the UK we had the opportunity to relocate to Rhodes. With a deep breath the decision was made…we would do it!
A totally new and personal way to organise a wedding in Lindos was to become a reality, a dedicated, specialised wedding planning service completely independent of any other business….the concept of ‘Lindos Weddings’ was born.
From our first day of operation we have always tried to lead the way when it comes to offering the very highest levels of service and attention to our clients. A consequence of this is that we were the first wedding company operating anywhere in Greece to offer our UK and Eire based clients a face-to-face consultation during the months prior to their wedding day as part of our service. It simply didn’t seem right to us that couples should be expected to plan and arrange such an important life event simply by email and on-line brochures alone. The variety and scope of what was available and the desire to ensure that Clients plans ‘worked’ led us to the conclusion that the only way to be able to offer a complete and professional service was to meet with each and every Client personally. How else were we to fully understand exactly what our Clients wished for and be able to discuss all of their ideas and options in great depth? This fundamental concept of meeting with clients at the very outset of their wedding planning seems to have been incredibly popular, both with our own Clients, and for a number of other wedding planners now operating in Rhodes.
Amazingly, prior to us starting our company there were no officially registered specialist Wedding Planners operating anywhere in the Greece. Working as a legitimate, fully registered company, we were the very first to be categorised by the Greek Government solely as ‘Wedding Organisers’. With this proud distinction in mind we at Lindos Weddings are determined to continue to be the premier supplier of exclusive, bespoke weddings in this beautiful and unique location.
Right from the very beginning we took the decision to forgo the standardised packages offered by so many other Destination Wedding Planners. Too many times we had seen couples being offered packages that included items that we considered to be optional extras and that were not necessary for the successful organisation of the big day. Our idea was to provide clients with the essential elements only at the outset of their planning, ensuring that the Wedding Day Package we offered covered all of the legal and organisational aspects of the wedding day leaving all other additions purely down to the choice and requirements of the client. We ourselves had enjoyed the freedom of being able to exactly tailor our own arrangements to suit us, we wanted to be able to offer this to other couples also. The personal service we aim to supply means that the clients be able to enjoy total freedom of choice and the opportunity to be able provide themselves and their guests with a day that reflected their own personalities, style and wishes…. A minimal package, the maximum choice!
