Matthew and Chelsea

We had been on holiday to Crete for a 2 week holiday in 2012 and decided to book a last minute trip again in August 2013 as we really enjoyed it. This was when Matthew proposed on our holiday to Stalis, after the initial shock and excitement we decided to start our wedding planning, we viewed venues in our home town and spoke with different wedding planners but after a few weeks we made the decision to look into getting married abroad.

It didn't take us long to decide on Crete after getting engaged there but as we had never married before we didn't know where to begin. Chelsea emailed 4 different wedding planners in Greece after scanning the internet for days one of which was weddings in Crete and when we got replies we instantly knew Weddings in Crete were the ones for us, The detailed background of the company and the helpful response helped us make the decision to go ahead and plan our wedding.


We instantly started email conversations with Elizabeth and Nina who clearly knew what they were doing. We filled in planning sheets, got prices for what we wanted and sent our deposit. 

Over the next few months we emailed weekly about the wedding, we had planned another trip to Crete June 2014 where Elizabeth and Nina were kind enough to come and meet us on our holiday to get to know us a bit more and took us around potential wedding venues. They worked closely along side our friends at Dias apartments where we had planned our reception ensuring everything we wanted was available there so we didn't have to worry about it.

After our trip We continued to communicate via email and even had a long phone conversation as well.

Over the final 12 month countdown to the wedding we changed a lot on the original planning sheet which was never a problem. We were given several options for photographers and shown their work to help us choose, we ended up choosing George Stratigis who was fabulous and our pictures are stunning. We were also given lots of options for flowers and arches to choose from and often sent pins on pinterest to help us choose, we finalized everything in the weeks leading up to the wedding and Elizabeth and Nina were constantly available for us to get in touch even though they had already started their summer weddings nothing was too much work.

We flew to Crete a week before the wedding and met up to arrange final decisions and plan the venue set up. Our experience at the town hall was just lovely and made us very excited for the wedding celebrations 2 days later.

On the day of the wedding Elizabeth and Nina met Matthew at the beach to make sure the set up was in the right place and the beach looked tidy and clean, they had arranged for chairs and tables and balloons to be delivered to our venue and and set up, they decorated all our tables whilst we got ready and they looked amazing. Nina came to check everything was going well when we were getting ready which was lovely. Our wedding on the beach was simply stunning, the transport was all set up for us also Prosecco and beer for our guests on the beach it was like a dream. Elizabeth and Nina stayed around to make sure everything ran smoothly from the food to the speeches at the reception.

We kept in touch via email when we got home getting updates about our marriage certificate and previews of our photos.

We couldn't have chosen a better company to work with. Elizabeth and Nina made our whole experience planning a wedding abroad as easy as possible nothing was too much hard work for them and they truly love their jobs and are fabulous at what they do and we wish them all the luck for their future weddings.

Thank you very much to you both for making our special day more perfect than we ever could of imagined.
