Couples will be able to see footage from the following properties in Rhodes where civil wedding ceremonies can be performed:

• Filerimos Monastery & the Kalithea Spa – two unique and picturesque venues for couples looking for something a little bit different. The 15th century Monastery of Filerimos is located 10kms form Rhodes Town in a tranquil hillside location. Ceremonies are performed in the grounds.

The Spa features some impressive Italian style architecture from the 1920s and the legendary spa was famous in ancient times for its healing water that came from the rocks surrounding the Bay of Kallithea. The building also features an impressive 14 metre high dome.m

• Aldemar Paradise Royal – also in Kalithea this 5 star is a new wedding venue for this year where civil ceremonies can be performed overlooking the sea or by their pretty chapel in the grounds. This is a great choice for those looking for a family orientated hotel on an all-inclusive basis.

• Blue Sea Beach Resort – a 4 star hotel that is also great for families, located 2.5km outside of the lively resort of Faliraki on its own huge stretch of beach. This venue is new for the wedding programme this year and can also be booked on an all-inclusive basis or half board.

• La Marquise Luxury Resort Complex – another new venue, this 5 star hotel is located in a hillside scenic area of Kalithea and features a fantastic range of accommodation spread over 120,000 square metres, plus a lovely modern pool and a rooftop pool. Couples receive a complimentary bottle of French champagne to celebrate their big day.

• The Dolphin Taverna – this typical Greek taverna is ideal for couples that want a more authentic Greek experience. It’s located in Lindos that is increasingly becoming the popular choice of location for weddings.

• Lindian Village – this stunning luxury 5 star property offers idyllic surroundings on the beautiful beach of Lardos on the south-eastern tip of Rhodes and uniquely has a river running through the grounds with an island where couples can tie the knot.

As well as a tour around these locations the programme also features a couple giving their reasons for choosing Rhodes as the place to get married. They said the island offers amazing value for the standard of accommodation, with views to live for and an amazing turquoise sea, reminiscent of the Caribbean – but much closer!

After a recce to the island to see what was available they chose the Aqua Grand for their wedding later this summer for its fabulous location and sea front private pool area.

Mathilde Robert, managing director of Planet Holidays said: “Couples love Rhodes for exactly the reason the couple featured in the programme suggest – it has a stunning turquoise sea – that makes an excellent backdrop to any wedding photos, plus the standard of venues is very high for the price.

“Planet Holidays takes great pride in taking care of all the arrangements for the couple from the translation of the paperwork to liaising with the wedding venue, from organising the flowers to choosing the food and wine. Personal service and attention to detail is what really counts. Couples can rely on us to get their big day right from start to finish.”
