Useful information for a perfect wedding in Santorin

Here’s what you need to know about weddings in Santorini. Divine Weddings in Santorini is here to answer your questions and help you to choose the best wedding package in Santorini for you.

The local Bishop “Frangiskos” has informed us that he will no longer allow Catholic Weddings to take place in Santorini, as he states “in an effort to protect its commercialization”. We believe that this is not at all fair for the Catholic Couples that love Greece and want to get married in the Catholic Church in Santorini. If you feel that you want to express your opposition to this ruling, you can send an email to the Vatican at OfficeI@CHRISTUNI.VA

No, for the moment we can only arrange your wedding here in beautiful Santorini, as this is where our office and staff are based.

We only provide this service for the couples that arrive in the island via a cruise boat (see our Santorini wedding packages section). Otherwise we recommend our couples to be in the island two days prior to the wedding date.

No, unfortunately the market in Santorini is very limited and we do not cooperate with anyone in the island that provides this service. We advise our couples to bring their own wedding dress and wedding suite for their wedding in Santorini.

We recommend to our couples to be in the island at least two days prior to the wedding, as we like to have a pre-wedding meeting to discuss all the wedding details. Also it is necessary for a civil wedding in Santorini, to have the couples in Santorini one working day after the wedding so we can arrange the final signature in the Town Hall.

Yes, you can see our packages here: Vow Renewals in Santorini Please contact us for further information and we will be more than happy to help! We would like to let you know that for a vow renewal, no documents are needed so the process is easier, we just need a copy of your passports. The ceremony is the same as the civil ceremony but you will not receive an official marriage certificate.

Usually we advise our couples to book their wedding one hour before the sunset, so they will enjoy a beautiful sunset photo shooting after the ceremony. Sometimes, this will depend on the availability of the venue and the available time slots of the registrar. Moreover, we also recommend our couples not to have the ceremony in the middle of the day, as the weather in Santorini during June, July and August can be very hot.

We will be more than happy to be your witnesses on the day, so don’t worry!

This is based on the delivery policy of your chosen photographer.

Santorini has unique wedding reception venues. Depending on the number of guests we will propose several wedding venues in Santorini to choose from.

Yes, we arrange Orthodox weddings (see all our Wedding Packages in Santorini). Please contact us for the necessary details.

Yes, the marriage certificate is a legal document issued by the Greek Government and accepted internationally. You will use the certificate to register your marriage back home when you have received it.

After the ceremony, we will arrange a meeting at the Town Hall so we can proceed with the final signatures. The procedure of getting your marriage certificate with the Apostille Stamp usually takes 3-4 weeks. As soon as we receive it back from the Town Hall we will send it to you by post.

Please see below our standard cancellation fees: 400 euro (non refundable) to secure your wedding date and time and start planning your wedding. The deposit can be paid by credit card through our secure server. For more information please contact us.
