Greece witnessed its first same-sex marriage ceremony on March 3, 2024.

The occasion comes in the wake of the Greek Parliament’s recent vote on a bill legalising same-sex marriage, a decision that sparked intense debate among lawmakers.

Stavros Gavriliades and Dimitris Eleysiniotis, a devoted couple of over two decades, exchanged vows at the Nea Smyrni municipality in Athens.

The ceremony, held at the Nea Smyrni municipal palace, was a private affair attended by close family members.
