Will our marriage be legally recognised in the UK?
Yes - your marriage is completely legal and recognised in the UK.
How soon do we need to book?
There will be some paperwork involved which can take time to prepare. We require a minimum of 7 weeks notice for Rhodes weddings. The more popular wedding venues can get booked up very quickly therefore booking as early as possible is always best. This will also prove helpful if you plan to include a wedding party as flights and accommodation also fill up quickly.
How long does our stay in resort need to be?
We recommend a 14 night holiday as it makes your time away more relaxed. However for Rhodes there is a minimum of 5 nights stay. For Santorini a 14 night stay is required as clients must be on the island a minimum of 7 nights before the wedding can take place.
What name should the bride-to-be travel under?
The bride must travel under the name that appears on her passport for both the outbound and inbound journey.

It is completely up to you to choose the style you want for your wedding clothes. Please bear in mind however that temperature in the Med can get very hot and this should be considered when deciding what to wear.
Can we book with a hairdresser or beautician?
Yes, we work with great hair stylists and beauticians who come highly recommended. They will visit you at your hotel to do a consultation and trial run before your big day. We recommend you book this with us before arrival as they are popular and get booked up quickly.
Will it be possible to arrange group excursions?
We will be happy to confirm private outings and trips for your wedding party. Alternatively we can provide you with details of the excursions we offer in resort should just the bride and groom want to take a trip together!

We will be more than happy to make any such arrangements where possible, at a supplement for you.
Can you recommend how to transport wedding clothes?
Your wedding outfit should be packed away safely in a hard suitcase / box and put in the hold of the aircraft. It is not possible to take your wedding clothes into the cabin itself. Please discuss this at the time of booking as, depending on the airline, this may need to be pre-booked and charges may apply for excess baggage.
Can you arrange extras e.g. flowers & a photographer?
Of course. Photographers and flowers are included in some of our wedding packages. You are also welcome to add on any extras such as DVDs or extra images from the wedding extras lists provided.
Do we need a special wedding insurance?
We strongly advise you take out wedding insurance for your wedding abroad. Starting from as little as 29.99 for peace of mind.
