Both civil and religious marriage ceremonies are legally recognized in Santorini, and foreigners can choose to marry in either a civil or religious ceremony, or both. The legal minimum age for marriage in Santorini Greece is 18 years for both men and women, however it is possible for younger couples to marry with a court order

Santorini Wedding Planners

 You can have a legal wedding ceremony see legal wedding documents information Here

♦For more information about legal wedding documents go Here

♦Or you can have a symbolic wedding ceremony 

A Symbolic wedding is exactly the same as a legal wedding and it is addressed to those who have difficulty gathering their legal documentation according to the Greek requirements or for those who are already married and they wish to renew their vows.

So, in case you have no time to gather the documents for a legal wedding, or the cost for gathering your documents is too high for you, or if you wish to have a vow renewal, a Symbolic wedding is the solution for you.

The ceremony it is exactly the same as the legal wedding and it will be performed by the celebrant who does the legal weddings so none of your guests will know the difference as there is confidentiality between you and our agency.

Please note that you don’t have to be married in advance to have a Symbolic wedding in Santorini.
