If you are planning to get married abroad and are after a hot destination during the summer months then Greece could be the perfect destination for you as a couple. Greece, known for its historic buildings, food and culture can provide you with a number of beautiful and luxurious hotels and resorts, all perfect in their own way for your wedding abroad. Seeing as Greece isn’t too far away from Ireland it would mean that your friends and family may be able to join you in celebrating your marriage abroad. Get married outdoors, in a beautiful Greek Church, or in one of the fabulous resort hotels located either on the coast, or inland – the choice is yours.
Some countries may require non-nationals, before you can get married in their jurisdiction, to produce a certificate from their country of origin that they are free to marry. These are usually known as Certificats de Coutume. For more information you can visit http://www.dfa.ie/home/index.aspx?id=274
