Are you looking for a wedding ceremony in Greece that’s all about you, that reflects your style, your personalities and tells your story in a way that you choose it to be told?
If the answer is ‘YES!’ you can skip straight to the contact me page.
If you are curious, but still not sure, read on.
What’s it all about?
As a Wedding Celebrant I compose and perform a unique and meaningful wedding ceremony for couples of any religion, ethnicity, race or sexual orientation. Usually the couples are different nationalities and may have chosen to get married in Greece because it’s a neutral destination which family and friends from both sides can easily travel to. Because the ceremony is written especially for the couple, it can beautifully combine traditions and customs from both sides. There is no restriction to content or style and the ceremony will reflect the couples personality and tell the story of their love. The ceremony can be held at private venues such as a hotel or private villa, or even on a quiet beach if its only a handful of people. It may also be possible to combine a civil ceremony with a local Registrar.
How does it work?
We will arrange a meeting or a Skype call first and I will ask you both a few questions to get an idea in my mind for how you want the ceremony to feel. This is followed up by a detailed questionnaire which you complete and send back. From this I will create a first draft and outline for the ceremony and will make any suggestions for traditions or readings. And then we take it from here. I will email,skype or telephone as often is required to get the ceremony perfect and just the way you want it.
On the day or evening before the wedding we do a rehearsal of the ceremony with everyone who is involved. On the day I will be there at least an hour before the ceremony is due to start. You will also receive a copy of your ceremony in a folder as well as a commemorative certificate.
What if we don’t get along?
Hey, it happens! It’s very important to have a good ‘fit’ with your Wedding Celebrant. If you (or I) feel that we are not quite right for each other then we can recommend you fellow Celebrants, no hard feelings and no questions asked.
Is it legal?
The ceremony has no legal standing and is a symbolic ceremony. It’s the perfect solution for people who prefer to be married legally in their own country, but want to hold the wedding ceremony in beautiful surroundings and sunshine, or who want an enhanced civil ceremony in Greece. It may be possible to combine the services of a Registrar and a Celebrant ceremony to create a legally recognized marriage, however this greatly depends on individual Registrars.
Are you a wedding planner?
No. If you need one, I can certainly recommend planners who I know and have worked with in the past. If you have already organised a wedding planner, that’s great! You can give me their details and I can communicate with them if we have any particular needs for the ceremony. Equally I am always happy to give you the low down on venues and locations where I have performed ceremonies in the past. I’m nice like that.
How much does it cost?
The real answer to this is that it’s priceless. However the actual answer is £495, and if my travel and accommodation costs exceed £100 then you pay the excess.
I still have loads of questions!
Fair enough. Why don’t you contact me to arrange a skype call (without obligation) and we can chat things through? You can use the contact form or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to meeting you,
