Nina + Andrey + kids: the spring valley wedding

We feel very lucky to meet this beautiful couple from St. Petersburg. Nina was so gentle and womanish, Andrey seemed to be extremely serious. He took care about every detail. By the moment of the wedding they have been together almost for 10 years and they had two kids, two lovely boys.  We should find the right format for the wedding with kids.

As the most of the couples who chose to be married in Crete, Nina and Andrey have visited our island few times before. They were searching for a special place to celebrate their wedding union. “Italy or Crete,” – said Andrey. – “And we chose the wedding in  Crete, because the atmoshere of the island… Every time we come here, we feel like we came back home.”   Quite a lot of couples witness they have the same feeling.

It was not easy to agree on the wedding location. Nina was like more sea theme. We asked them to try the new spot that no one had weddings before – a wonderful Amari valley!

CWW comment: in April there are a lot of wild flowers there. The mountain peaks are covered by snow. The sky is incredibly blue. Early spring is a low season and the ideal time for the mountain wedding celebrations. It’s just beautiful!

Nina decided to start the wedding photo shooting late after the preparations. We moved to the Old city of Rethymno. Lovely place indeed.

The guests were waiting the couple at the venue. It was the small in the yard of the ancient chapel St. Irini. The best decoration was the mountain Ida, the highest point in Crete.

 

 

   

In the wedding decoration we just emphasized the natural beauty of the place. As they say: Less is more!

    

The ceremony was in Greek language. “We don’t understand this language, but we love how it sounds,”- Nina smiled. Of cause, in these cases we organize the simultaneous translation to the native couple’s language or to English.

“Are you ready, dear?!”

The couple’s parents were absolutely happy for their kids. “We were waiting for that moment so many years,” – the Andreys’ mom said.

Nina and Andrey wanted kids to be the part of their wedding and the wedding memories. Thus we came up with the idea of the family picnic.

We may hope we did the great job. At least we have got the long detailed review from Andrey after the couple has been back to their  motherland. You can find it here   Our best regards to the photographer Egor Matasov.  Great shots!

  • My opinion - the island of Crete is for the outdoor weddings🌟Just look at this Gorgeous landscape 🌷The Cretan nature is amazing and there’s no need to spend a fortune for decorations.

  • A moment of beauty: the Magnolia and the blue sky. You won’t meet the magnolia tree often in #Crete. But still. We found this blooming sample last May while scouting the location for a wedding 🕵🏻‍♀️ The beautiful blossom is so fragrant it can fill the air with its powerful, lemony scent. Cretan nature provides aroma for a wedding day for free 🙂 The Magnolia is believed to have existed from the beginning of time. One of its meaning is dignity and nobility. Not a few have used magnolia blooms in their weddings. #weddinginCrete #cretewedding #weddingingreece #magnolia #destinationwedding #destinationweddinggreece #destinationweddingplanner #magnoliablossom #cretewithinweddings #weddingvenuegreece #intimatewedding #gettingmarriedingreece #moodoftheday #visitgreece #cretewelove #крит #критвнутри #свадьбанакрите #свадьбакрит #магнолия
  • In case if you are inspired by the “blue marine” theme for your wedding, keep in mind that 1) very few sorts of flowers have a natural deep blue color 💙 2) Crete is not the best place for sailing ⛵️because of a lack of bays and harbors. I wouldn’t advice you to plan the yacht wedding in #Crete. The sea can be waving 🌊🌬🌊 The only “safe” region is Elounda bay. Meanwhile the boat trip can be amazing interaction for the pre-wedding or after-wedding party with friends 🎉🍹🍸. . . . #weddingincrete #cretewedding #yachtwedding #yacht #bluemarine #cretewedding #destinationweddinggreece #destinationweddingplanner #ultramarin #marinewedding #bridetobe #weddingwire #bridalflowers #boatcruise #preweddingparty #wedding2019 #shesaidyes #iamengaged #couplegoals #weddingatsea #rethymnomarina #cretewelove #visitgreece #крит #критвнутри #свадьбанаяхте #свадебнаяцеремониявгреции #свадьбакрит

  • This cake reminds me of the island of #santorini. White-blue combination is a typical Cycladic style. Crete is different. But still it’s attractive and has to do with the world wide image of #Greece 🇬🇷 #weddingcake #weddingingreece #weddingincrete #destinationweddingplanner #weddingideas #couplegoal #intimatewedding #islandwedding #destinationweddingingreece #wedding2020 #yesido #cycladicislands #santoriniwedding #санторини #свадебныйторт #свадьбанакрите #критвнутри #blueandwhite #soloverly
