Important information about civil and symbolic wedding ceremony

Please note that the paperwork that you provide to the Greek authorities is NOT returned to you after the wedding, they are kept on record.

Here are a few thinks you need to know before you decide if you want to have a legal or symbolic WEDDING in Santorini. No matter which country you come from, you have to gather a bunch of papers which they will need special stamps called Apostille and then translate your papers in Greek by an authorized source before you send them to me so I can start on my end the Greek part of the paperwork.

But that first part, before the papers get in to my hands, will cost you around 500 euro to 1000 euro (depending where you come from) which you are called to pay.

After you will get legally married here, it takes 1 month before your wedding planner will be able to send you the Greek marriage certificate in Greek, which needs to be translated back in English and you will pay for that as well. So, although you will be married, it will take you another month before you will be able to register it to your country because our Town Hall registry is really busy and there is no way to get it sooner than this.

So, if you wish to avoid all these expenses, headache and bureaucracy, the solution is to get legally married in your country and come to Santorini for a symbolic wedding which will be exactly the same in terms of ceremony. You miss nothing and you gain the money you would spend to prepare your paperwork.

Your guests will never know the difference and of course exists Confidentiality between you and our agency.

*All translators should be approved by the Greek Consulate or Embassy.

Wedding documents require to be translated only by Greek authorities, such as a Greek Consulate or Embassy (in your city or country) or the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Athens.

An independent translator with notary stamp is not accepted by the Greek authorities or church.

To keep you out of stress we can Official translate your wedding documents for you on low cost.
