You will need local assistance for at least the legalities if not more. If you don't speak Greek you won't get very far. To make it happen you'd need to go there in advance to line up all the necessary services you'd require. A wedding planner will be cheaper and less-stressful in the long run. You don't have to have a reception unless that's what you want.
I suggest you ask your questions in a new posting. This one is dated August 2006!
ooop! thank new to this!! think i'll take a trip to local travel agents see what they can help with first
Hi there Im getting married in Santorini this June and am using Ionianweddings.co.uk. Our wedding co-ordinator is Andrea. Hes greek and has been really helpful so far. Good luck x
thanks, i have been in touch with ionian. keep me informed of how they deal with your wedding please:)
That was so helpful, thank you. Would you mind saying who your planner was as I am in the middle of picking one and realise I really need to be careful. Thanks
I wondered if you could help me? Im doing my research on wedding planners and I hear about Michael lot although I have found two websites Im not sure if they are they company/Michael. Can you shed any light
Ive heard of Michael but we decided to use Ionianweddings.co.uk and my co-ordinator is Andreas. If you take a look on their website youl see they cater for so many wedding needs. He has been great so far.
Brilliant, thank you
Julia I would be interested in hearing in more detail about your experience. I am mid organising my wedding for 2011. We have chosen the same venue and it is a choice between companies Stella and Kivotos. Any help you can give to sway our choice would be appreciated.
I am finally getting married in august this year and have decided on the Irene Chapel. We have a very small party attending and felt this an apt location. We are going to Santorini in may for a holiday and to check out local restaurants that would cater for our reception meal in august, perhaps even use the hotel we are staying at for both trips? We are using Ionian weddings and have dealt with Jane. She has been very helpful. We met her at the NEC Wedding Show in October 2009. Also using Ionian means they can take care of all the legal sides with paperwork and getting all your certificates apostle stamped.
hope this is of help and good luck to all
