Patmos Wedding

Beautiful and chic wedding on Patmos

at the Dodecanese

Alex and Jo chose the amazing island of Patmos because beautiful Jo had spent all her childhood summer holidays on the island was an easy decision. Mint colour for bridesmaids and a bold, yellow car were the main colors. The ceremony took place at the main square in the castle, in front of the municipal. Right after the wedding kiss, a Greek folklore dance followed, leading us to a reception by the seaside till early in the morning!


Worldwide known as a sacred island for it is the place where Saint John wrote the Book of Revelation, Patmos is an ideal destination for nature lovers thanks to its lace-like coastline, sheer cliffs, and volcanic soil.

According to the prevailing theory, the Book of Revelation was written in 95 A.D. in the Holy Cave of the Apocalypse, where St. John heard the voice of God talking to him. Turned into a place of worship by the monk Christodoulos Latrinós in the 11th century the cave –on whose walls we can trace the fingerprints of St. John’s himself–, is still open to the devout Christians.

The Holy Monastery of the Apocalypse was built as a castle in 1088 by the monk Christodoulos Latrinós. Cultural and religious center since its first day of use, it took another five centuries for it to spread its activities all around the island – and not just the town of Hóra (Chora), where it is situated. Around this Monastery revolves Holy Week and Easter celebrations every year.

Buildings of different ages form the Monastery, comprising 10 chapels and 99 cells as well as a Library of 890 handwritten codes and 13,000 documents about the history of the site.
