We would highly recommend Gamos Crete Weddings -
OUR PLANNER MARGREET RIEMEIJER WAS AMAZING TAKING CARE OF EVERY SINGLE DETAIL IN THE PLANNING OF THE WEDDING AND PERSONALLY COORDINATING THE ENTIRE DAY MAKING SURE THAT THE BRIDE & GROOM AND ALL THE GUESTS HAD THE BEST POSSIBLE EXPERIENCE. FROM THE MOMENT MARGREET AGREED TO BE OUR WEDDING PLANNER SHE STARTED PLANNING EVERY DETAIL AND THINGS MOVED FORWARD QUICKLY -
SHE WAS ALWAYS AVAILABLE DAY AND NIGHT WHENEVER WE NEEDED ANYTHING OR HAD ANY QUESTIONS, SHE WAS EASY TO WORK WITH AND ALWAYS ENTHUSIASTIC WHILST TAKING AWAY ALL OUR STRESSES AND WORRIES. AS WELL AS EXCEPTIONAL ORGANIZATIONAL SKILLS AND A LOT OF EXPERIENCE SHE ALSO HAS A GREAT SENSE OF HUMOR WHICH IS ALSO IMPORTANT IF YOU WILL BE WORKING WITH SOMEONE FOR A LONG TIME.
We decided on the locations one year before we got married when we were in Crete but then leading up to the Wedding we were only able to come to Crete a week before so we needed to put all our trust in Gamos Crete Weddings. They coordinated everything with the two separate venues for the Wedding and Reception plus all the different vendors and local suppliers. We had a very International Wedding with guests from all over the World -
Gamos Crete Weddings also come with many recommended vendors and suppliers they work with regularly and we fully endorse all the choices Margreet suggested for us -
The wedding celebrant was recommended by Gamos and we felt very lucky to have him. Like Margreet, he spoke perfect English and Dutch. He took a lot of time to get to know us before the Wedding and spent a lot of time with us and our guests before the ceremony so it was a very personal experience for us and our families.
In the end our wedding was something straight from the movies, we and all of our guests were so happy and thoroughly impressed from start to finish.
Thank you Gamos Crete & Margreet!

My husband and I got married in Crete and we used the services of Gamos Crete, owned by Margreet Riemeijer. Planning our wedding in Chania, Crete was made incredibly simple by her. Margreet was on hand night and day to answer our questions and to share pictures and ideas for the big day.
FIRST OF ALL MARGREET HAD MANY CONTACTS WITH VENDORS AND IF SOMETHING WAS OUT OF OUR PRICE RANGE SHE WOULD EITHER NEGOTIATE OR LOOK ELSEWHERE. SECOND OF ALL, I RESEARCHED WEDDING PLANNERS BEFORE I CAME ACROSS GAMOS CRETE. I ALWAYS FELT AS THOUGH I WAS THE ONE AND ONLY BRIDE MARGREET WAS WORKING WITH.
WE FELT CONFIDENT IN BOOKING OUR WEDDING VENUE (MANOUSAKIS WINERY) BASED ON HER RECOMMENDATIONS AND WERE NOT DISAPPOINTED.
We went to visit the venue a few months before the wedding and Margreet had organised for all of the vendors to be there (lighting, flowers, catering, photographer, DJ etc.) which meant we could decide on all of the key features and visualise how the wedding would be ahead of time which really put our mind at ease given that we were miles away back in the UK.
The feedback from the guests on the day has been amazing, everyone had the time of their lives. The venue had been decorated beautifully by Margreet and the team using decorations she had sourced based on our requirements. It was a true fairy tale.
There must also be a special mention for Henk Bekker, the Celebrant who carried out our wedding ceremony. The guests loved the personal touch of the stories he told and the relaxed atmosphere of the whole day.
Margreet stayed behind the scenes but always near in case of any questions or problems. She was busy coordinating music, food, photography etc. to ensure a seamless day.
If anyone is planning on getting married in Crete you will not go wrong with hiring Gamos Crete!

Our second meeting with her was even better as we had opportunity to fine tune all the details of our wedding (wine, catering, meet the DJ, meet the hair stylist and makeup artist and to see the locations). We learned that Margreet had a good partner network in Crete and that the communication was easy with her vendors.
The day itself was fantastic. We married at Kalathas, which is a very nice beach. Our photographer was Hanna Monika and the videographer Vasilis Tsagkarakis from Heraklion. The wedding celebrant leaded our ceremony which was very personal. After the beach wedding we had the diner and party at Ktyma Reveli, which is a fantastic spot to celebrate your wedding! Stunning sea view and a very luxury atmosphere. Stelios was the DJ and he made a very special evening for us.
At 2 am we asked Margreet to extend the party till 3 am which she arranged immediately. A perfect flexibility of both the wedding planner and the venue. All together it was a fantastic day.
Thank you Margreet, Gamos Crete for all your effort
we hope to see you again

We choose to have our elopement in Crete at the most beautiful sea view area at the Western side of the Island
ME BEING GERMAN AND MY HUSBAND TO BE WITH SCOTTISH ROOTS DECIDED TO HAVE OUR DREAM CEREMONY ON A LOCATION THAT NEEDED TO BE A BIT OF A CHALLENGE. GAMOS CRETE CAME WITH OUR ULTIMATE DREAM LOCATION ON A VERY HIGH SPOT WITH AN IMPRESSIVE VIEW.
None of our family members was present during our wedding, since we decided to marry in a very intimate way.
When we came home the surprise was huge!
Selecting Gamos Crete as our wedding planner was simply obvious as the contact was straight away so warm, caring, understanding and friendly. Next to this they showed how organised and committed they are and helped us with her professional eye for detail and arranged all the papers we needed for our wedding, including translations and even the Major who had to climb on the mountain were we had our dream ceremony.
The atmosphere, ceremony and décor up to the sweets and the donkey which Gamos Crete arranged for us, was far beyond our imagination.
We wouldn’t have wanted anything differently.
Thank you so much Margreet, Gamos Crete for all your effort. We have the best memories because of you!

FIRST OF ALL I HAVE TO THANK GAMOS CRETE AND MARGREET HERSELF FOR A FANTASTIC DAY!
MEMORABLE FOR EVERYONE, NOT JUST THE BRIDE AND GROOM.
EVERYBODY TALKING ABOUT THE FAIRYTALE WEDDING AND HOW AMAZING WOMAN YOU ARE.
FROM MY FIRST CONTACT WITH GAMOS CRETE I FELT LIKE THIS WAS SOMETHING PERSONAL AND GENUINE.
THE OWNER MARGREET WAS ALWAYS ASKING ME WHAT I LIKE, INSTEAD OF PROPOSING PRE-
Anything was possible and the response time on e-
Usually it takes a day or two to get a feedback on e-
I felt that I could trust Margreet in every decision, I'm actually quite picky and like to have control, but I could sit back and enjoy my planning. I sent photos and descriptions of what kind of wedding I had in mind and what I expected of the ceremony. We brought our own priest from Norway and had a Norwegian Christian wedding ceremony.
The DJ/Saxophonist, Greek Dancers, Photographer, Make-
They were very professional, and all the time, Margreet was checking, -
I sent photos of flowers, decorations, wedding cake etc and everything came out just like I pictured it.
Margreet works with her heart to make the wedding personal, and she has a big heart for people. I had lots of ups and downs during my two weeks in Crete celebrating my wedding. I was so happy to get this amazing experience, but also very sad because my father was in the hospital the same time fighting cancer, so my mother could not come either to be there on my big day.
All this time, Margreet made me think positive and made me look forward to the wedding. She is so positive! Truly amazing.
All together, a very good experience cooperating with Gamos Crete. Beyond my expectations!
We will be back in Crete!

We are so glad we chose to organise our wedding using Gamos Crete and we would definitely recommend them to anyone planning their wedding.
THEY TOOK AWAY ALL THE STRESS AND GAVE US THE MOST INCREDIBLE DAY, FAR MORE WONDERFUL THAN WE EVER WOULD HAVE MANAGED OURSELVES. WE CAME ACROSS THE COMPANY THROUGH AN INTERNET SEARCH FOR WEDDING PLANNERS IN CRETE AND FROM OUR FIRST SKYPE SESSION WITH OUR PLANNER, MARGREET, ABOUT 18 MONTHS BEFORE THE WEDDING, WE KNEW THAT GAMOS CRETE WAS ABSOLUTELY THE RIGHT COMPANY TO TRUST WITH OUR WEDDING DAY.
WE WENT OVER TO CRETE TO LOOK FOR A VENUE IN APRIL 2017 AND DURING THIS TIME MARGREET SPENT A WHOLE DAY WITH US, SHOWING LOCATIONS AND SUGGESTING IDEAS. SHE MADE A BIG EFFORT TO GET TO KNOW US AS A COUPLE SO SHE COULD REALLY TAILOR THE IDEAL WEDDING FOR US. SHE HELPED US FIND OUR PERFECT LOCATION AND HELPED US LOOK AT THE SURROUNDING AREA FOR PLACES FOR OUR GUESTS TO STAY. FROM THEN ON, WE WERE IN CONTACT WITH MARGREET A LOT, AS SHE STARTED PLANNING EVERY LITTLE DETAIL FOR US AND ASKING OUR OPINION ON THINGS.
Once we moved in to 2018 the communication really picked up and I (bride) was in contact with Margreet daily. Nothing was too much trouble and she was always enthusiastic and positive about any new ideas. She also reminded me of so many things that I never would have thought of without her. I think that by the end she understood what I wanted more than I did!
We went out to Crete for the week before the wedding and we met with Margreet twice in the lead up. Again-
The days before the wedding were calm and worry-
It was flawless, we and all of our guests were so happy and thoroughly impressed by the whole thing! Planning a wedding abroad seemed like such a scary thing at first but doing this with Gamos Crete was absolutely the best thing we possibly could have done. There were some big ‘unknowns’ right up until the day-
We got married on Marathi beach. The wedding celebrant was recommended by Gamos Crete and was brilliant. Like Margreet, he spoke perfect English. He made the ceremony personal but light hearted and everybody commented on how much they enjoyed his delivery. He persuaded us to write our own vows which we were unsure about at first but I’m glad we did-
We then had the reception at Loukoulos restaurant. I also can not recommend this place enough!!! They had so many staff that none of the 77 guests ever had an empty glass! You never had to wait for anything at all and they were so happy to help. The staff were friendly, fun, polite and attentive and again, everybody commented on how great they were. The food at Loukoulos was ridiculously good. There was so much of it, but every plate that came out was simply wonderful!
Many people said that they had never had such good food at a wedding and it was the best food that they have had in Greece. The DJ was really good too (he played saxophone earlier on for guests as they arrived!) and the Greek dancing made it even more of a night to remember.
Thanks to Margreet and her team, Henk, Valentino at Loukoulos and all of the staff there, we had the most perfect wedding day imaginable. We are so grateful and really would encourage anyone getting married in Crete to use this wonderful company!!
Margreet, we hope we get to meet you again one day, our happiest memories are because of you!

ON THE BEACH OF OUR DREAMS WE MARRIED LIKE WE IMAGINED.
OUR WEDDING PLANNER WAS MARGREET OF GAMOS CRETE. SHE LET OUR DREAM COME TRUE .
GETTING MARRIED ON A WHITE BEACH WITH A BRIGHT TURQUOISE SEA, WITH AN INTIMATE CLUB OF 17 GUESTS.
WE WERE ALL LOOKING FORWARD TO THE PERFECT VENUE FOR BOTH THE CEREMONY AND DINNER/PARTY.
The vendors exactly fulfilled all our wishes. This would have grown over our heads without Gamos Crete to stand by us.
The setting was more beautiful than we could ever expect with the white chairs in the white sand and a beautiful canopy of white orchids! The photographer has taken great pictures beyond our expectation, giving us a lifetime memory of this beautiful day. All vendors, inclusive the person who made a fantastic drone film of our wedding were very professional.
Gamos Crete knows well with whom to work. We even had a day after shooting in Balos.
We are so enthusiastic about the result. What a fantastic photo’s and film.
With Margreet we had contact for about one year of all the details for our wedding through email, what’s app and skype.
With her warm and friendly personality she was always there for us! Our questions were answered quickly and a solution was always made easy by her.
She even gave us some little things extra, such as: decoration, beautiful candlesticks and olive lids for the chairs free of charge. Margreet drove several times more than one hour (one way) in her car to Elafonisi to arrange everything for our wedding .
All this was never any problem for her!
Thanks to Margreet of Gamos Crete we have had the most beautiful day of our life and exactly as we had hoped for.
‘Margreet, on behalf of us and our guests thank you very much for everything!’
We will never forget you!

OUR DREAM CAME TRUE AND WE CAN’T DESCRIBE HOW INCREDIBLE OUR WEDDING DAY WAS.
came in contact with Gamos Crete team because of our neighbor who also got married on Crete with Gamos Crete team arranging their wedding day. We actually never been to Crete before our wedding, but after all this enthusiasm of my friend and seeing her pictures, we decided to go for it.
Contacting Gamos Crete felt like a real blessing. Nothing was too much to ask and they were always beside us arranging the details on forehand. Meeting Gamos Crete on Skype gave us immediately the trustfully feeling that said a big ‘Yes’ to let them arrange our wedding.
They took care of a professional DJ with live saxophone and arranged all the special details for the ceremony.This day the sea was rough and setting up a ceremony on the beach looked like a big challenge. The whole set up was done accordingly and because of their leadership they took care of everything.
We had a very special ceremony thanks to the wedding Celebrant of Gamos Crete.
All our friends and family together were astonished by such a speech that made us feel so close together. Everything perfectly arranged by our wedding planner Margreet from Gamos Crete. Without her it would never be such a success.
Both Margreet and Henk were engaged to make our day a perfect one. All the personal attention from this team, even on the smallest details, made our day stress less. Everything was possible and no request was too much.
Thank you Gamos Crete for an unforgettable day.
We can’t wait to see you again!
