Step into an idyllic wedding story filled with love, joy & a truly out-of-this-world setting! We’d expect nothing less than true wedding perfection when an amazing couple like Connie & Dan chose the heavenly Greek island of Crete for their dream destination wedding. The super-happy couple travelled from the UK with their two adorable children and their beloved family & friends to say their I dos in the most gorgeous of settings…an exclusive sea view wedding venue looking out onto the shimmering turquoise waters of the Cretan sea. After an initial Covid-related change of wedding venue, it was love at first sight for Connie & Dan as soon as they set eyes on the picture-perfect ceremony & reception location in western Crete, with its lush greenery and fresh elements of nature all around. That all-important ‘feel-good’ atmosphere was there right from the start and we just knew that an amazing wedding vision was about to become reality!
On the day of the wedding, a beautiful balmy late-spring afternoon, Connie & her father were transported in style from their luxury hotel to the venue in a classic white Rolls Royce wedding car. The waiting guests enjoyed a chilled glass of bubbly and were blown away by the panoramic ocean views & the natural beauty of the sea view venue’s surroundings. The couple’s choice of white, light pink and gold as their wedding décor colours complemented the sea view setting’s natural surroundings just perfectly.
Dan waited with loving anticipation for his bride beneath the gorgeous white ceremony pavilion which had been decorated with a stunning floral garland to match the elaborate aisle flowers in their elegant white urns. An ultra-romantic string trio accompanied the wedding party as they arrived for the ceremony and Connie & Dan’s two sweet children, so excited and SO precious, almost stole the show as cute flower girl & pageboy! After Connie’s emotional entrance and with the ocean as their idyllic backdrop, the bride & groom took their wedding vows under the warm Mediterranean sun.
After the ceremony, Connie & Dan hosted a celebratory drinks reception with a selection of delicate canapes. Their younger guests were equally well looked after, with their own canapes served in the special kids’ corner that the couple had thoughtfully arranged for the lucky children at their wedding. As well as their own canape & dinner menu, the mini guests were treated to an amazing babysitting service which included a teepee tent, handicrafts, games and a little gift for each child.
Connie & Dan posed for their inspirational wedding photos in the venue’s photogenic surroundings and took advantage of the dreamy sunsets for some truly magical ‘just married’ portraits.
The locally-inspired wedding dinner was then served on the beautifully landscaped lawns, with the guests sitting under an enchanting canopy of fairy lights, beside the towering palm trees. The beautifully decorated reception tables looked so chic with their exquisite floral centerpieces of flower balls in elegant high cylinder vases. To complement the pure white aesthetic, there was golden cutlery, gold-framed menus and Connie & Dan’s thank you gift to their guests…mini Cretan raki & olive oil wedding favours.
Connie & Dan chose a fabulous 4-tier white wedding cake with a cascade of blush-pink & white sugar roses…it’s a yes from us!
