... we organized our first wedding in Western Crete ... starting with the booking of the church, the arrangements for the service, flowers, a decorated car, the reception meal ... and ending with a display of Cretan dancing and live Cretan music in the village square of Megala Horafia. Sixty guests flew out to witness the wedding of Jim and Mary Davies, and all had a wonderful time ... not just on the wedding night, but for the whole two weeks, including the Stag and Hen nights around Chania town ...
We got married in the Fortezza in Rethymnon on 30/08/13 and had the best day of our lives.
Without Elizabeth and her team this wouldn’t have been possible. From the word go, Elizabeth was attentive, enthusiastic and most importantly CALM! Despite the stresses we faced at home, from worrying about who to invite to realising one of our birth certificates had incorrect information on it just 4 weeks before the wedding, Elizabeth was so reassuring and her responses to our emails always helped us to relax. “Don’t worry”, she would say, and it really helped us at times when things looked like they were getting on top of us. We didn’t know what to expect from a wedding planner and had no idea what lengths she would go to for us. In truth, we had concerns that wedding planners would try to ‘push’ ideas onto us or make us feel like we had to make certain choices, but Elizabeth was the exact opposite...Continue reading

Dave and Kirsty
Married 30 August 2013 in Rethymnon

Why choose a Wedding Planner?
There is no fixed formula to a marriage organized by Weddings in Crete. Each wedding is different — tailor-made to perfectly suit you. The venue, the location and type of reception, the decorations and flowers to suit your colour choices ... and a honeymoon somewhere you yourself have chosen; like a few days in the volcanic island of Santorini; or a cruise around the North Western tip of Crete; or a converted old Venetian hotel in the heart of Chania ... or of course your own holiday villa.
Many travel companies offer you a two-week holiday with your marriage. A package wedding abroad is like a package holiday — the same product designed to be sold over and over to many different people. Your wedding planner will be a holiday rep.
So if you are looking for something a little more exclusive than a package wedding, Weddings in Crete offers you a way to choose every part of your wedding, through close contact with us, your wedding planners in Crete.
With Weddings in Crete, you can choose your own accommodation, helped by us if you like. You tell us your wedding dreams ... and we do the rest ...
We can plan Greek Orthodox weddings in Church (if one of the couple is Orthodox). We also plan civil ceremonies, Blessings and Marriage Renewal vows. We arrange weddings for people from many countries ... UK, Norway, Ireland, Denmark, Sweden, USA, Romania, Russia, Greece and many more.
