Every big event in your life deserves full attention. Are you planning a church wedding on Kos island? To get married in a Greek-Orthodox church, at least one spouse must be of Greek-Orthodox faith. If you prefer a civil ceremony, we will be happy to organize it for you at the picturesque private chapel on the hotel grounds.
Even if you choose not to have a church ceremony, you will want your wedding to be prepared carefully. You can rely on our experienced team to take care of all organizational matters and support you with the formalities. We will assign a staff member you can reach at all times.
