Anyone get married in Greece??

So rather than pay a wedding planner at least £800 to sort our documents, we would like to see how easy it is to do it ourselves.
From what I've read, we need:
~ Birth certificates
~ CNI (£35pp) to be completed in English and Greek and notarised at the Embassy in London
~ Copy or newspaper where we didn't notices were published 8 days before application for marriage license is published
Where and how do we apply for the marriage license? How much is it?
What have I missed?

And the Green consulate can officially translate the documents - anyone know the fee for this?
And marriages must be registered at the local Registrar's Office/Office of Vital Statistics (Lixiarhio) within 40 days following the ceremony.

I think the fees for celebrant is 300 euros?
I hope someone has done this and can help! 😄

Also, does anyone know what an official Apostille is?
And where we can get an apostille stamp on the copy of our birth certificate, and how much this costs?

This sounds like an absolute minefield and well worth paying for someone who knows what they’re doing to arrange.

@PartyPlan hahahahaha this is exactly what I ended up thinking after I'd written all of that 😂

We did and we just paid the planner. So much easier and stress free!

@Louise0701 how much did you pay? 🧐 Is £800 reasonable?

It was 2014 and we paid around £450 so that’s probably about right. It was the wedding planner at the hotel who did it for us. We took our documents to the town hall on day 3 of the holiday and that was all we got involved in really, she handled the rest.
