Aside from some stunning wedding venues, it’s the accessibility that makes Greece popular for weddings. Famed for its picture-perfect islands and romantic sunsets, choose Greece for breathtaking views for your wedding backdrop.

 

Is the wedding a legal ceremony that’s recognised in the UK? Yes. You will need to be in resort ranging from 2-3 working days prior to the wedding day to arrange the marriage licence and register the wedding. All documentation will need to be translated into Greek and certified in the UK before you leave, your Kuoni Wedding Expert can recommend a company to assist you with this.

What would the wedding ceremony and reception look like in Greece? In Santorini the ceremony will take place in venues outside of your chosen hotel, a wedding reception with entertainment can also be arranged in the same venue. For Crete, your wedding reception will take place in the grounds of the hotel featured with all arrangements taken care of by the local wedding co-ordinator.

Agia Irini, Santorini

Santorini is a patch of paradise with some seriously dreamy venues for an utterly romantic and serene wedding, and Agia Irini (also known as the Santa Irini Chapel) is certainly one of the most beautiful.

This traditional whitewashed chapel has a terrace perched high on the edge of the Caldera cliff tops with magnificent views of the Aegean Sea and volcano, and is one of the most scenic spots to exchange vows. What makes it even more special? You can have a magical sunset ceremony at this pretty chapel. Do note that this is a small venue with a maximum capacity of 40 guests, and with just 30 seated for the ceremony. Located between Fira and Pyrgos village it’s suited to those looking for a private and secluded ceremony with a sensational backdrop, ideal for those unforgettable sunset wedding portraits. It’s also possible to have a drinks party at the venue, before returning to your chosen hotel for your reception. Or if you are a small party you can stay and dine at the venue (max 8 people).
