• Stages for you Jewish Wedding Ceremony in Santorini:
Before ceremony, the groom is committed to sign a kind of contract, called ketubah. This contract recites all the obligations of the groom towards the bride. The traditional wedding ceremony takes place under the Chuppah. A Chuppah or Huppah is a canopy. The couple stands underneath it during the wedding ceremony. Right before the beginning of the ceremony, the bride often covers her face with a veil. The covering of the bride is a rite symbolizing Laban’s trick to Jacob. The two fathers accompany the groom and the two mothers accompany the bride to the Chuppah. When the Jewish Wedding ceremony begins, the bride encircles the groom three or seven times. After that, the couple tastes wine and then the groom gives the bride the ring. Thereafter, the rabbi declaims the seven blessings. When the ceremony is almost reaching the end, the groom breaks a glass with his right foot. The breaking of the glass is happening in order to temper the excessive joy.
