Weddings Greece & The Greek Islands
Greece lies at the juncture of three continents and is an ideally located Christian country with an strong religious tradition and many historic attractions. If you've decided on an exotic wedding then Greece is an ideal choice of locale for a legal and internationally recognized wedding observance to be held away from your home town(s). With the proper required documentation, outlined herein, your ceremony will be as legal as if performed by your own local parish priest or Mayor.
Your civil or religious wedding ceremony or renewal of vows in Greece can be as big and festive as you like or as quiet and low-key as your 2 legally required witnesses* will allow.
There are many Greek islands and Santorini, in our opinion, is the obvious choice for many reasons! Other agree, because Santorini is the most popular island in Mediterranean and among the 20 most popular world wide..
Santorini is beautiful. Its very beautiful! This particular island and this one alone, combines the best of Greece's rugged geology in an a awe inspiring and dramatically beautiful setting. Everywhere you look Santorini has stupendous and spectacular views bordered by the Aegean sea. Views that you just wont find anywhere else in Greece or the world.
Unlike many other Greek islands, Santorini also has the infra-structure and desire to satisfy all your wedding needs no matter how extravagant or simple. There are no de-humanizing tall buildings on Santorini and no car horns blaring. Its friendly residents appreciate the fragility of human existence and their respect for mother nature is profound.
The atmosphere is harmonious, the foods delicious, the wine locally vinted and the population international. Santorini is a very pleasant island with something that you and everyone in your wedding party will remember for the rest of their lives. It could be the beautiful black sand beaches or the wonders of ancient Thira and Acrotiri, it might be swimming in your cliff top pool or dining amongst the stars but what ever it is, Santorini delivers the goods every time!
Fira town, the islands cliff top capitol, will further charm you with its white washed architecture. Approaching ceremony day we recommend you stay in Fira town with its winding cliff top paths and beautiful traditional homes.
If you choose to base yourselves In Fira town you will have a wide variety of accommodation styles to choose from for all budgets including world famous "caldera view" (crater view) traditional and non traditional dwellings and some with cliff top pool.
You will also be closer to many of the venue locations for receptions and service. If you want to fully enjoy all the natural beauty that Santorini has to offer then we wholeheartedly recommend a caldera view suite with pool at least for one night! Get married at the right time of year and you'll find such accommodations less expensive too!
