Honeymoons, Anniversaries and Blessings...

Poros is a beautiful island an hour from Athens, the Saga Hotel being one of its most notable hotels. The Alexopoulos family specialise in providing you with a celebration for your special day in the most discreetly famous wedding venue in Greece.

Many visitors like to combine a holiday with an Anniversary, Blessing or Renewal of Vows. Poros offers several beautiful locations for this - Love Bay and Daskalio Island are just two examples - the details being easy enough for the Saga Hotel to organise for you.

Honeymoon holidays, anniversary celebrations, blessings and renewals of vows, are all easily organised as they require no legal or church officials. The Saga Hotel has some excellent celebration package deals on offer, which can be discussed and varied according to your needs. Blessings and renewals of vows are re-affirmations of vows already made, before witnesses, so the main matter is the choice of venue, someone to administer the vows and a celebration afterwards.

Marrying from the Saga Hotel...

For those unfamiliar with Greek wedding laws, the arrangements can appear rather daunting, particularly for non-Greeks. Takis and Zefi can take the trouble out of your preparations by advising you on arrangements for the wedding and and dealing with the Greek end of the paperwork. Once all the preparations are made, couples can be married from the Saga Hotel, returning for their reception or honeymoon. Zefi loves to cook for celebrations, her food being justly respected by the locals as well as her relatives. Anybody married from the Saga Hotel becomes - however briefly - one of the Alexopoulos family, with all the support and assurance given to a family bride and groom on the occasion of their wedding day.

There are two main kinds of weddings in Greece - Civil Ceremonies and Religious Weddings. Couples who have gone through a Civil Ceremony sometimes arrange for a consisting of a Civil Ceremony followed by a blessing. Religious Weddings in Greece mostly take place in Greek Orthodox churches, where at least one of the couple has been baptised into the Greek Orthodox communion. Full details of the documents required in both cases can be downloaded from our page Legal Requirements of Marriages in Greece. Contact the Saga Hotel for further advice and to discuss any variations in the packages offered. Further information is also available from the Municipality of Poros's website page on Civil Marriages which gives some ideas on costs and arrangements.

The Wedding Blessing Package may be a re-affirmation of vows by a couple in the presence of witnesses, probably friends or relatives, but an actual Blessing may involve a private service in the presence of a minister, either in the hotel or at some other venue. This amounts to a marriage service except that no legal register is signed and no certificate of marriage is issued. As this can be a complex matter, depending on the guests and the degree of formality, the price will vary with the requirements of the couple.
