Santorini – Perfect Destination for a Fabulous Wedding
Posted on: Sunday, October 9th, 2016
A wedding on a coast with fairy tale-like views of crystal blue sea, amazing sunsets and the smell of the Mediterranean. Doesn’t it sound like something you’ve dreamed about your whole life? Choosing Santorini as your wedding destination, will make the most important day of your life amazing and give you the perfect wedding.
The island of Santorini is known for its romantic sunsets above the deep blue sea and this is only one of the many reasons why this destination makes an enchanting atmosphere for such an important event in your life as your wedding. Besides getting a dream wedding, you will also be able to enjoy a beautiful honeymoon where you will make the very first memories of your life beginnings with your loved one. Weddings and honeymoons on Greek Islands are an absolute “must do“ in recent times, partly for the incredible beauty of the Islands and partly for the once in a lifetime experience.
For both luxury and romance as well as the perfect venue for your wedding and honeymoon, Canaves Oia Suites are just the right place for you. The elegance of the venue and the heart-stopping scenery of Santorini will make your wedding day unforgettable.
Recent changes in the law in the last few years has made the wedding process much easier for couples eager to say their “I dos“ in Santorini. However, the documents you will require for the wedding depend on the state or country you are coming from.
Bear in mind that you have to plan your wedding at least 12- 6 months in advance (in Santorini), so you can get all the necessary documents and fulfil the legal requirements needed for you to have your dream wedding. Also, as you plan your wedding, make sure that the date you picked does not coincide with the time of fasting and church farewell.
For EU citizens, the documents you will require to get married are full Birth Certificates with Apostille stamp translated into Greek language, photocopies of your passports and Single Status Letter or Divorce Letter if you were married before.
For US citizens, the requirements are slightly different. In addition to providing your full Birth Certificates, Single Status Letter or Divorce Letter (if you have been married before), you will also need to provide photocopies of your passports and a Marriage License with Apostille that you can use for a wedding outside of the USA, which is valid for both partners. An alternative to this would be to go in person to the US embassy in Athens and instead of the Marriage License get an Affidavit of Marital Status. Please contact the Embassy for more information if you’re considering this option.
The architecture of the magnificent white colour offers one of the most elegant environment that will perfectly fit into the concept of your ideal wedding day. The possibilities for the planning of the wedding itself are numerous and, in respect to this, Santorini will far exceed your highest expectations. Don’t think twice, visit Santorini and make your dream wedding come true
