The Sandy Beach elopement&dinner for Azadeh and Navid

“My vision was to have a stress free, simple ceremony with just the four of us that was intimate and… on a beach. We live in Toronto, and I miss sand and the sun a lot.  Navid and I have been married 4 years. I don’t remember our wedding very well. There were so many family members, friends and it was more like a social event to me. This time our only guests are my beloved sister and her boyfriend. ” – Azadeh explained me her idea. “We want to celebrate our 4 th family anniversary and make this day special.”

I do love the format of elopement. It’s nice, it’s personalized, it’s for those who like surprise each other and know to value small moments of life. So being wedding planner in Crete, I said yes.

The couple chose for a holiday stay the La Mer Resort&SPA (adults only). After few WA calls we decided on  making a ceremony and a dinner at the long sandy beach nearby. It’s the longest sandy beach in Europe, they say. I like it because it has easy access and dramatic waves.

Enjoy the images, captured by the local young photographer Natalia Petraki

 

 

This bridal bouquet was created by my favorite Cretan florist Maria. Those burgundy peonies were just wow! and highlighted Azadeh beauty.

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There is so something utterly perfect about finding a hollowed out beach cave to wrap around you and your guests as you exchange vows with only the tunes of the tides whispering in the background.

Here you may find Azy and Navid review.

Warming greetings from Crete!

  • Dear Corona, come on, go away! It's a big National Greek Holiday today 🇬🇷- 25th of March- and you didn't let people get together... Ok, we got your lessons, it's enough 🙂 Here at this video you may see a traditional Cretan war dance Pentozalis, it symbolizes revolution, heroism and hope. It was performed by men only. Now even me I like to dance it together with the dancers at the weddings. I call it a Cretan hardcore 💥🔥🌪 These days I was writing different articles about wedding in Crete specialities. ➡️Check our blog at www.cretewithinweddings.com to learn more about the Cretan dances which can be a great part of the entertaining program at your wedding 🌟 and be well 🤗#pentozalis #cretandances #folkcretandance #cretanculture #march25 #weddingincrete #cretewedding #weddingplannergreece #weddingplannercrete #weddingreception #bridetobe #wedding2021 #engagedlife #cretewithinweddings #wewillsurvive
  • What to do if you planned you wedding and there’s coronavirus spreading into the world?😳🤯😤For our clients who have already spent almost a year planning their Big Day in April and May 2020, I advice to postpone it to the safe time - June-October 2020. You won’t loose your money and there won’t be any additional payments. Our venders respect your choice. In fact it’s a classic Act of God issue and none of us is going to make profit out of this crisis situation. Take care, wash you hands and spread ❤️ Together we are STRONG 🤗 #corona #covid_19 #forcemajor #actofgod #weddingincrete #lovetotheworld #destinationweddinggreece #love #weddingplannergreece #nopasaran #cretewithinweddings #couplegoals #крит #организациясвадьбывгреции #свадебныйорганизатор
  • Don’t want to make fun of the coronavirus threat that interfered that much into our realities, but I would like to warn you - in Crete we also have a virus ‼️My statistics says that 10% of the couples who got married here, they were infected. I call it this “cretomania” 🤓 Symptoms: ☑️visit Crete every year ☑️ sometimes even in winter ☑️love Cretan food and take liters of the olive oil back home ☑️celebrate important family dates in taverns ☑️strong desire to baptize their kids and make anniversary parties in Crete only.

  • I would titled Crete “the island of elopements”. There are many picturesque spots with breathtaking views ⛰🌿🌷and I am always confused to choose the one for a new elopement. If you are not up for the planning of a big wedding, head to a stunning location for an intimate affair for just the two of you 💚 My full review “the best places to elope in Crete” is shown on www.cretewithinweddings.com blog now 😊 photo by @hannamonika MUAH @michalistsotras Florals @kentiaflcreations Accomodation&Decor @aravanes_crete_wedding_venue Models: @stefi_novi and @stef_pan_ Bridal Dress @katiadelatola  #weddingincrete #editorialphotography #elopementincrete #elopementingreece #elopementplanner #weddingblog #cretewithinweddings_blog #weddinginsipation #olivegrovewedding #couplegoals #romance #olivegrove #olivecrete #destinationweddinggreece #destinationweddingcrete #weddingplannercrete #localweddingplannergreece #greecewedding #weddingdecorgreece #weddingphotographygreece #yesidogr #love #крит #свадьбакрит #критвнутри #свадебнаяцеремонияволивковойроще #оливковаятема #вдохновение #невеста #greekbride
  • 🔥🔥🔥a Couple for Full-Moon elopement WANTED🌝🌝🌝 Seriously,I had this idea since I “experienced” a summer full-moon night at the Cretan mountains. In July and August the full-moon is extremely bright. It lights up every detail around and you can see clearly the rocks and even flowers.  Probably the summer full-moon is one of the most romantic moment that Crete can offer you, guys🎻🎻🎻 If you know somebody who would love to experience the full moon elopement, please, share it with them 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 PS This photo was made by my friend-cinematographer on our way back from Amari valley to Rethymno. The photography is not about filters and photoshop presets. Photography means “writing with light”. Sorry for my being nerd, I love good images 😍😍😍 and I am very demanding with any photographer who work @crete_within_weddings 🧐🧐🧐 #elopement #elopementcrete #full-moon #fullmoonelopement #realphotography #cretanmountains #cretewedding #weddingingreece #weddingplannergreece #weddingideas #shesaidyes #elopementwedding #elopementvenuegreece #elopementvenue #romance #cretegreece #cretannature #instacrete #крит #свадьбанакрите #организациясвадьбывгреции #свадебныйорганизаторвгреции #полнолуние #summernight

  • Surprise! You are married!!! 🤪 the next day after every couple witnesses that the wedding day passed so fast. Like a glimpse 💥⚡️✨ and they can hardly remember the details (6-18 months of preparations BTW). That’s why I always recommend to my clients to save money on something else but to hire a good photographer and videographer. (I have a long list of great local professionals all over the Greece) 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟Then nothing will miss that day and remain in your memory. #weddingphotographygreece #weddingingreece #weddingincrete #cretewedding #greecewedding #destinationweddinggreece #weddingplannergreece #marriage #bridetobe2020 #yesido #couplegoals #weddingvendors #islandwedding #greekislandswedding #santoriniwedding #engaged #diywedding #критвнутри #свадьбанакрите #свадебныесоветы #свадьбавгреции
