Keeping with tradition
Medieval castles overlook sandy bays and friendly, sleepy villages combine with natural beauty for authentic Greek weddings.
If the real Greece is what attracts you to Kos, the Adimachia Traditional House is the perfect choice for a wedding ceremony. The restored house, in a quaint village, reflects the feeling of history throughout the island where Hippocrates, the father of medicine, is said to have tutored his students under a plane tree.
Kos has a coastline that stretches for more than 290km, with lovely beaches and plenty of facilities to satisfy lovers of watersports. Many rate Bubble Beach as the island’s best, where the crystal clear water is cooled by volcanic bubbles from the crater on the nearby island of Nyssiros, while Tingaki has beautiful, white sands, and lively Kardamena has a long stretch of sandy shoreline.
Away from the sea, you can explore the atmospheric lanes of Kos Town’s historic old quarter, picnic with peacocks in lovely Peacock Valley, enjoy a sunset horseback ride through the magnificent mountains, or visit the ancient Roman site of Asklepion, or the birthplace of Hippocrates.
Kos offers a number of picturesque and traditional settings for your wedding. All official civil ceremonies must be conducted in a Kos town hall.
Kardamena Town Hall weddings offer something for everyone and the scenic destination provides an ideal backdrop. Wedding ceremonies may take place in the Town Hall (accommodation must be booked in Kardamena) and then you can have your wedding pictures taken on the pretty seafront area outside or in one of many other picturesque locations – it’s a lovely way to capture your perfect day.
Although official weddings must take place in a Kos Town Hall, ‘mock ceremonies’ are possible in some of our hotels, following a civil ceremony at a Town Hall.
