Introduction to Weddings in Santorini

Santorini is a picturesque Greek Island that is located in the heart of the Aegean Sea. It offers some of the most beautiful views in the Northern Hemisphere, providing the perfect backdrop for your big day. At Wed With Us, we offer a range of different venues in Santorini and we can make your wedding planning process as easy as one, two, three…(or alpha, beta, gamma in Greek!).

What’s so special about weddings in Santorini? The variety of venues can cater for wedding parties with less than 40 guests at some venues yet up to 500 guests at others. This dynamic choice, along with our in resort wedding planner, means that you can make your special day truly unique and personalised. With some of our Santorini venues, we can even provide an online live stream of your ceremony at no extra cost. This means that your friends and family who unfortunately can’t make the wedding, can still be a part of your big day.

Important Information about weddings in Santorini 

The couple will both need to provide copies of the following documents before the wedding (and also take them upon travel):

  • A valid, 10 year UK passport that does not expire within 6 months of your return to the UK – this must also be certified.
  • Original birth certificates.
  • Original decree absolutes from any previous marriages.
  • If you have been widowed, you’ll need the original copy of your previous partner’s death certificate and your original marriage certificate.
  • Original deed polls for any previous name changes.
  • If you were adopted, you’ll need the original copy of your adoption certificate.
  • A certificate of no impediment, which can be obtained by a UK registry office within 3 months before the date that you return home. Our wedding planners will advise you about the specific wording required on this document.

All of the above documents must be legalised by British Foreign and Commonwealth Office. The cost of this will be advised to you during your wedding planning process. The documents must also be provided with Greek translations, supplied by an approved translator by the Greek Embassy in London. Once all the documents have been translated, the translations and legalised originals must be checked by the Greek Embassy in London for accuracy, which also has a small admin fee.

Copies of the legalised documents, the translations and certified passports must all be supplied before your wedding day and original copies taken with you to Santorini.
