We always love sharing our insight & ideas with future brides who are looking for some venue inspiration for their dream destination wedding in Crete.  As well as gorgeous, ever-popular beach weddings & picturesque private estate or rustic winery ceremonies, there is also another fabulous venue choice which we believe is the perfect setting for an elegant & stylish Greek island wedding; a luxurious, carefully selected private villa.

Your venue selection will play a huge role in your wedding day memories so we decided to put together a unique styled shoot at an exclusive contemporary villa with a private olive tree garden to show off the endless possibilities of this up-and-coming trend for wedding ceremonies & reception parties. And we captured every joyful moment!

Letting our creativity flow, we used a colour palette of chic rose gold & dark blue, which set off perfectly the clean white lines of the villa, we included all the important details that make a fairytale wedding day extra special. Romantic candles & tea lights combined with beautiful copper toned tableware on a navy blue tablecloth created a super chic effect for the wedding dinner table and matching personalized stationery including stylish invitation cards, place settings & menu cards added the perfect finishing touch.

 Our bride’s 2 fragrant bouquets, which included white orchids, Mistletoe Cactus, Anemone & Delphinium, as well as rare Vanda Orchids, looked stunning next to her bridegroom’s distinctive buttonhole which contained matching flowers. As a stunning backdrop for the amazing ‘New Mr & Mrs’ photos we added a unique wedding arch decorated with macramé lace & a garland of Monstera leaves & Blue Star Fern.

We really went all out when it came to choosing just the right wedding confectionery for this very special occasion...we couldn’t stop at just the one elegant celebratory cake, so we chose 4 fabulous, individually designed works of art & a selection of cute matching cupcakes....all keeping to our decor colours & almost too pretty to cut into!

To compliment the wedding sweets, and for an extra touch of luxury, we added some delicious raspberry champagne cocktails & hand crafted vodka and raised our glasses to the happy couple!

We were thrilled to include a splendid white vintage motor car in our inspiration shoot! Adding a touch of nostalgia; the perfect grand accessory for a head-turning entrance at any wedding made in heaven!  

As the sun set on our perfect villa styled shoot, and we reflected on the success of the day, we felt blessed to be able to offer a breath-taking venue such as this for the very finest destination weddings in Crete. A truly incredible setting with a timeless opulence. We had a blast creating this wonderful, unforgettable event along with our favourite top suppliers (what a great team!) and can’t wait for our next exciting venture!
