Wedding Information (including the holiday resorts of Halkidiki, Rhodes and Santorini.)

Get an idea of cost for a certified translation on the get a price page.

To get married in this country you will need to bring your original documents and photocopies thereof. English is not an official language of this country, so you will probably need a translation of the following documents to get married:

+ Statutory Declarations
Certificate of No Impediment, stamped and sealed by a solicitor or Notary Public. Valid for 3 months from date of issue.
+ Birth Certificate
Full birth certificate of both bride and groom required.
+ Affidavit
If never previously married, an Affidavit certifying single status.
+ Decree Absolute
If divorced, provide with a court stamp. An additional copy is usually required.
+ Spouse's Death Certificate
If widowed, former spouse's Death Certificate and previous Marriage Certificate.
+ Proof of Change of Name
Proof that has been stamped and signed by a solicitor is required if either party has changed their name by deed poll or statutory declaration. This also applies if a previously married woman has reverted to using her maiden name.
+ Adoption Certificate
If either party was adopted, adoption certificate is required.
In Rhodes only.

Other:

+ Residency
Minimum residency period, excluding day of arrival, in working days.
3 days.
+ Passport
Valid 10-year passport of both bride and groom required.
+ Parental Consent
Notarised Statutory Declaration or Affidavit. Required if under 18, unless otherwise stated.

In order to obtain a Marriage Licence, certain important legal formalities must be performed on arrival. Legalisation of all documents is required either at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office or the consulate of the country you are visiting.

Marriages abroad are recognised by UK law only if they were were conducted in accordance with the local law of the country - although it cannot be registered at a UK register office. If there is any doubt about the legality, contact the Home Office before making any arrangements.

Seek advice from your GP in case you require any vaccinations or medical advice at least 3 months before departure date.


Hague Convention

Greece is a member of the Hague Convention, so any official documents legalised by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London should be valid.
