Planning a Romantic Destination Wedding in Crete.

Have you always dreamt about having a wedding amidst glorious sunsets, unspoiled seashores in a laid-back ambiance and welcoming settings? If yes, then Crete should be the destination for your wedding. Rustic or contemporary, extravagant or down-to-earth, whatever style of wedding you wish to have; this little slice of Paradise in Greece will turn all your dreams into a reality and make your big day unforgettable.

But how do you set the planning process in motion? Where do you start?

I think that if you have the time and resources (and a group of family and friends willing to make the journey overseas…who wouldn’t want to?!) planning a destination wedding in Crete is actually pretty straightforward.

Is it legal?

Before focusing on the planning part – this is the first question to answer, and the answer is yes.

A wedding in Crete is perfectly legal, provided you follow some clear-cut guidelines. Unless you speak Greek, it’s very important that you find a good, bilingual, wedding planner. This is where I can help. I can take care of everything for you – from the simple legal requirements to liaising with the caterer, florist, local town hall, photographer, musicians… whatever you need to make your day complete.

Choose a wonderful location

You can decide from a wide range of charming locations for your Cretan wedding. Perhaps you favor the elegance of a Chapel or the majesty of a perfect beach or in the heart of rustic nature away from the tourist centers and heading to a more hidden, beautiful and tranquil location. In all cases, Crete is the ideal island for your destination wedding and easily reachable with daily flights from Athens. The beauty and allure of this island has magic wedding locations beyond imaginable.

Crete, both full of charm and character is also home to some of the most picturesque beaches in Greece and is well known for its sunny and hot temperatures. Areas such as Chania, Rethymno and Heraklion have some of the finest beaches to create a perfect backdrop for your wedding day. We would love to advice you which beach fits your perfect wedding in Crete.

Plan in advance

Cretan weddings have rich historical and traditional legacies associated with them. It becomes important in this context that loose ends of your wedding day are sorted out full in advance so that things don’t go haywire at the eleventh hour. A fair degree of help could be hired from the professional Gamos Crete weddings and events team.
