THE WELCOME PARTY

5pm @ Dot Beach Bar, Voula

We would love to get everyone together 2 days before our wedding to welcome you to Athens.

Drinks will be flowing and food will be in abundance.

Dress Code: Mykonos beach club. Sexy but casual. Feel free to bring your swimmers to dive into the ocean! Anything goes at the pre party

THE WEDDING

Once the service is finished, transport will be organised to take everyone straight to the reception which is the 'Reef' at Agia Marina to start the party.

Wedding Gifts

The best gift we can receive is your presence. However, if you wish to honour us with a gift, a contribution to our wishing well would be greatly appreciated.

We have had many of our Australian friends and family request our bank details in a bid to avoid bringing Australian Dollars with them on their travels. We have provided the details below.

ACCOMODATION

There are so many places to stay in Athens. The beauty of being wedded in this beautiful part of Greece is that the opportunity for accommodation is endless.

For those who haven't visited Greece before or maybe for a few years, this is simply a guide based on our experience. We recommend staying by the Athens Riviera (especially Glyfada and Vouliagmeni) for the duration of our wedding celebrations as you will be close to the wedding venues.

Again, please don't feel confined to these recommendations!
