Most of the Greek Islands are able to accommodate couples wishing to have a civil marriage service. With the predominant religion in Greece and her islands being Greek Orthodox, a religious wedding service is not generally available to couples from the UK, but it is possible to conduct the civil ceremony alongside some of Greece’s enchanting chapels, which give a traditional feel to the event.
You may prefer to opt for one of the excellent hotels ready to cater for all aspects of the day, from the ceremony to the reception and evening party. Or why not book your reception in a traditional beachside taverna where the atmosphere will be informal and laid back, the food simple but delicious, and with a thoroughly welcoming atmosphere.
You will need to be resident on your chosen Greek island for 7-9 days before marrying there. Each island has a unique atmosphere and offers different qualities to tempt you, from sleepy hamlets to modern towns and lively resorts. We can help you find the perfect location ideally suited to you, so we can create your dream wedding. Whether you go for one of the larger, popular islands such as Crete, Corfu or Rhodes, delightfully picturesque Parga or the magical isle of Santorini, there's one that will be perfect for you, on your special day.
