If glamour is your aspiration then nothing shouts ‘luxury’ like a stylish private villa for your dream wedding in Crete. A stunning villa is now one of the most popular locations to hold a premium destination wedding and it’s not hard to see why! Offering their own private pool, ample space and sumptuous surroundings for you & your guests, a villa also means no extra travelling to do: one stunning location for both your ceremony & reception! (Except of course if you want to enjoy an exciting pre or post wedding event in one of Crete’s many amazing locations!) Decorate your chosen villa to complement your personal wedding style and add to the wow factor with amazing lighting to highlight the villa’s fabulous features. Twinkling fairy lights will create a fabulously romantic backdrop! Your wedding dinner is another awesome opportunity to highlight your glamorous wedding style. A perfectly chosen menu with superb cuisine and fine wine will add to the glitz, and don’t forget the champagne toast! Include an ultra-elegant, sophisticated wedding cake with a chic cake topper that’s meaningful to you both for an extra sprinkle of your own personalities. Gorgeous wedding flowers add so much to a glamourous wedding theme and you can really go to town with the floral décor at your own private villa.

Dreaming of an elegant Greek island wedding? A picturesque Cretan winery setting offers a contemporary take on the classic destination wedding locations and is the perfect choice for an exquisite ceremony & reception, surrounded by gorgeous greenery and vineyards. With lush gardens & authentic buildings a winery wedding goes hand in hand with beautiful scenery and the discreet elegance of a winery venue gives you the option to add your own personal style to the surroundings. With nature providing the perfect backdrop, you will need the minimum of extra décor. A clever concept is to incorporate wine barrels into your ceremony or reception, decorated with graceful flowers or chic lanterns, or wine bottles as distinctive vases or candle holders. Add elegant florals to enhance the winery’s natural greenery. With your own personalities in mind, you can create your own outstanding reception dinner menu to reflect your own personal taste & elegant wedding style. An awesome & creative idea for a vineyard wedding cake is a unique cheese tower: 2 or 3 tiers of delicious local cheeses decorated with grapes, figs and dried fruit & nuts, served on a slice of wood. The cheese compliments the wine you serve at your reception dinner and is a real eye-catcher! Include a live band or DJ at your winery wedding celebrations, add a cool dance floor… and dance in style under the stars!

If a romantic wedding ceremony on the warm sand beside the waves is your dream, then it has to be a fabulous beach wedding in Crete! It’s what dreams are made of! The setting speaks for itself…the aquamarine ocean as the background, the sunlight reflecting off the ocean waves and the gentle sea breeze make for a truly out-of-this-world destination wedding. Under a beautiful wedding arch draped in delicate gauze and decorated with fragrant flowers is surely the most romantic of settings to say ‘I do’. Décor items can include local driftwood, seashells & starfish or cute mason jars with sprays of flowers or candles placed at the end of each row of guest chairs, either in the sand or hanging from the chairs themselves. As part of your wedding stationery, help your guests to keep cool during the ceremony under the hot Mediterranean sun with personalised hand fans, designed to complement your romantic wedding style. Add your names, the wedding date, the programme for the day or even your own touching message to your guests. After the ceremony, enjoy the relaxed vibe of your Greek island beach surroundings with a refreshing cocktail beside the sea to toast your new life together. Your wedding reception dinner can take place at the venue of your choice & can be as casual or as elaborate as you wish. Add a taste of the sea to your menu by including delicious fresh local fish and seafood, washed down with a glass of bubbly! All eyes will be on your dreamy wedding cake so go for a classic, tiered creation with delicate detail to add the final elegant touch. 

The perfect destination wedding in Crete is all about celebrating your love for one another and creating an unforgettable experience to share with the people dearest to you. And it should be a true reflection of YOU and all that you love.
