Have your ideal Orthodox Wedding in Santorini, Ios, Skiathos, Skopelos, Halkidiki with Aegean Dream Weddings Specialists!

The wedding Greek Orthodox wedding ceremony is an ancient and meaningful service that has been celebrated in its present form for centuries.

The ceremony itself is beautiful with symbols that reflect marriage: love, mutual respect, equality and sacrifice; everything has a special meaning and significance, especially the repetition of each act three times to symbolise and to invoke the mystical presence of the Holy Trinity.

The exchanging of rings, the crowning of the bride and groom, the ceremonial walking and finally the blessing of the couple by the priest in which he reminds them that only God can break the union they have just entered into, are key parts of the traditional orthodox wedding in Greece.
