All you have to do is send us the necessary documentation and inform us of the desired nuptial date, and our Santorini wedding planners will have everything organized for you upon your arrival.In order to plan your Santorini wedding, it is necessary that couples obtain certain documents that will allow us to carry out the Santorini Island wedding planning. All documents must be translated into Greek by a certified authority, such as the Greek Embassy or Consulate in the country of your origin, and sent to us 4 weeks prior to the Santorini wedding ceremony.
  • Birth Certificate: both the groom and bride must obtain a full birth certificate (in contrast to a short birth certificate, which is not accepted for this purpose)

  • Certificate of No Impediment: states that the couple is free to marry and is issued by the registrar's office in their area. This document should be dated no more than 3 months prior to the wedding day.

  • Decree Absolute: in case one or both parties are divorced, a certified copy of this document must be submitted (for each person)

  • Death Certificate of Previous Spouse: in case one or both parties are a widow/er, this document must be submitted (for each person)

  • Deed Poll Certificate: in case one or both parties have changed their name, this document must be submitted (for each person)

  • Adoption Certificate: in case one or both parties are adopted, this document must be submitted (for each person)

  • Baptism Certificate: this document must be submitted (for each person) if the couple is getting married in the Greek Orthodox or Catholic Church. It is not required for a civil marriage.

If the Santorini wedding is to take place at a Catholic Church, a Confirmation Certificate, a Baptism Certificate and a Freedom to Marry Certificate, must be issued by the couple's parish priest and dated less than 3 months prior to the wedding date should also be submitted. Couples need to get a written permission from their parish's bishop to have the marriage performed outside their parish. In addition, the couple must obtain a certificate that they have completed their “Pre-Cava” instruction meetings.
