The Orthodox Wedding is one of the most frequently chosen type of wedding for the Greek Orthodoxs and depending on the region in Greece, it can have different customs and traditions. The Orthodox wedding is divided in two sections: the first section is the engagement of the couple and the second is the Orthodox Ceremony performed by the priest. In the Orthodox wedding, the couple must select a Koumbaros(best man) and/or a Koumbara (the female), who act as the official ‘sponsors’ of the marriage by placing the crowns (stephana) and putting the wedding rings on the couple’s hand. Many Orthodox weddings are taking place in central churches or in more picturesque ones near the beach, that are ideal especially in the summer period. That being said , there are some dates when marriages are not permitted to be performed. These are the following : 1st-15th of August, Holy Week/Greek Easter, 40 days before Easter, the 50th day after the Easter and from the 18th-25th of December. In the rest dates, our creative team can organize every aspect of your wedding day, including the ceremony and the wedding reception, always with your personal guidelines. In the Orthodox Wedding, you must know that are required more documents than the civil one, as well as that the church ceremony lasts longer than the other ones.
