Rhodes weddings are perfect for culture vulture couples who are looking to imbue their marriage with a sense of heritage and gravity.

Of course, if you are thinking of a destination wedding, there has to be plenty to see and do after the big day itself - both for you and your guests from around the world. Luckily, Rhodes is teeming with fascinating sites to discover.
Head to the UNESCO World Heritage City of Rhodes Old Town to explore the winding cobbled streets of the largest medieval city in Europe. Around the island, there are countless historical sights to take in, such as the Castle of Kastellos, the Castle of Monolithos with incredible island views, and the remains of a monastery and chapel atop Filerimos Hill.
It almost goes without saying that Rhodes is home to hundreds of spectacular beaches. Ladiko Beach is one particularly scenic spot for sunbathing or head to Cape Prasonisim a peninsular connected to Rhodes island via a sand bar.
If you ever tire of dipping in the Mediterranean sea, you can take a pretty forest trail up to Epta Piges, the Seven Springs for a spa experience amongst nature. And, for the adrenaline-fuelled among your wedding party, Rhodes offers everything from surfing and kitesurfing to an underwater world of breathtaking marine life to discover whilst snorkelling or diving. Looking for a real challenge? Hike to the top off Mount Attvyros, the highest point of the island, for utterly breathtaking views across the whole of Rhodes.
