Civil ceremony, the most popular type of ceremony for a wedding abroad is the civil one, which is a short ceremony performed by the mayor or registrar of the nearest town hall to the wedding venue that you have chosen. Each town hall in Greece has their own rules as to where they will allow ceremonies to take place, most insist that this is in the town hall building, but some areas will now allow outdoor ceremonies.
The civil ceremony is very short (5 minutes), you are allowed to customize the ceremony by saying your own vows to each other or having some close friends or families do a reading. The certificate is legally binding around the world and has no connection to any religious faith. Greek Orthodox ceremony, this is of course the easiest ceremony to organize in the country, with unlimited options, venues by the sea, on mountains, it will be difficult to choose the best venue for you! Depending on the priest performing the ceremony, we may be able to arrange for the ceremony to be performed outdoors!
One of you must be Greek Orthodox Church and the other baptized in the Christian faith. The ceremony is performed in Ancient Greek only.
Catholic ceremony, there are many Catholic churches around Greece (please ask for a list of these), where you can hold a Roman Catholic wedding ceremony, all requirements and regulations that apply in your parish will also apply oversees, the ceremony is performed in English.
Please note that you will have to supply a baptism certificate to prove that you have both been baptized in the Christian faith and at least one of you is Catholic. Please note Catholic ceremonies are held indoors in a Catholic Church only.
