Orthodox wedding gives you incredible opportunity to get married through the Orthodox ceremony, something you will never forget. Ceremony itself is incredibly touching and full of inner beauty. Its idea is Gods blessing of marriage, future children and eternal unity.
It is necessary to mention that the Church and State of Greece are indivisible; therefor the ceremony has official status and afterwards an official wedding certificate is issued by Greek Authorities. It does not matter if couple is already officially married – the Orthodox wedding may be held in any Orthodox chapel in Greece and required a special wedding permission from each place’s Metropoly.
Catholic wedding ceremony is the same as the Orthodox with the same requirements when it comes to paperwork. Majority of Greek islands have Catholic churches, including the most picturesque ones: Santorini, Mykonos, Tinos, Crete, Rhodes, Paros, Naxos as well as Athens.
