Check out the bustling nightlife in Zante

The popular island of Zante is known for its nightlife, with many younger tourists visiting each year to take part as a rite of passage. However, there's much more to Zante than drinking and dancing, although those are two things you might want to incorporate into your wedding party! 

The island was once known as the 'flower of the orient', showing just how beautiful a setting it is, complete with amazing sunset views if you choose to have your beautiful wedding a little later in the day.

Greece Weddings FAQs

Depending on which destination you choose, your party size and the scope of the package involved, your dream Greek wedding could be a reality for as little as £776. You’d be hard pushed to find a Greek wedding destination that is anything less than spectacularly beautiful, however certain flagship spots such as Santorini or Halkidiki do tend to cost a little more.

Large parts of Crete are unspoilt and off the beaten track, making it a popular destination for couples looking for something simple. The striking beauty of Santorini cannot be overstated, whereas for the calmness and serenity of a pine forest that ends at the sea, Halkidiki is popular for that all-important zen. A wedding in Athens does offer the proximity to a major city, meaning plenty of culture and sightseeing opportunities during your stay.

Just like any marriage, cost is a primary consideration when it comes to choosing the location of your wedding in Greece. Many of the Greek islands here offer broadly the same variety of packages, with picturesque ceremonies taking place either on the beach or on a terrace offering sweeping sea views. Consider also if you’d like to be near a large city (i.e.: Athens), for a spot of sightseeing after the big day, or if you want to get away from it all and relax on a secluded beach or out on a boat at sea.

You’ll need a full birth certificate for both bride and groom, certificate of no impediment to marriage or marriage license, divorce / adoption / change of name certificates if applicable and passports. If you’re looking to have an Orthodox wedding, both parties will need to be baptized as Orthodox.
