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!

Do you like it? We hope you have got some ideas and the inspiration while looking through the CWW blog. We would be happy to perform something special for you. Write us:

  • Every wedding, every event give a large room for the unexpected. That’s why the wedding planners exist 😁Once a close friend of the bride made a gift to the couple - hand-made pillow for the rings. She should bring it to the ceremony - that was a plan. All the guests arrived to the beach - making pics, drinking 🥂 Then a bad news came - the girl couldn’t find a pillow. She might be lost it or forget it the hotel 😐 When there s 5 mins to the ceremony left , it’s time to act. We have found the best looking grapefruit at the bar, cut it and dry the juicy surface with a napkin. 🍊🍊🍊. Eh voila! We ve got the nice and original “pillow” for the rings 😁
