The Wedding of Anastasia & Maxim

Anastasia and Maxim decided to escape from their hometown and to get married in the witness of the beautiful Cretan nature. It was September and the sun was still burning the skin.
I had advised the couple to have a wedding up the hills, where the temperature is always lower. That’s how the idea of this wonderful September wedding in Crete was born.

As you may know, the wedding industry also follows the fashion trends. In 2016-2017 marsala color was very trendy. The bride Anastasia had made her decision: “I want to have marsala colors on my wedding! I am in love with this color.” And she was absolutely right. It suited her perfectly!

The concept of the wedding day was “We are free to do whatever we want and we are not in hurry”. The concept was totally appropriate for this couple, since they had no guests involved and they were free to do anything they wished!

So we started right after midday. By that moment Anastasia and Maxim had already got a relaxed breakfast and were ready to meet with our team. The stylist came first. Then the photographers arrived.

One of our favorite moments of the wedding day is when a groom meets a bride, when he sees her wearing the white dress. Never mind how many years the couple have already spent together… It is always very moving to see your other half in her wedding dress!
We really loved this moment. Maxim was literally smashed by the beauty of his soulmate!

Then we went up to the mountains all together. Hanna Monika is one of the most experienced wedding photographers in Crete and we always discuss the plan of shootings before in order to save  time during the wedding. On our way we made a stop in an olive grove to take some pictures.

The couple had chosen a church in the small gorge in the central Crete, 20 minutes’ drive from Herakleion. These churches are very romantic and ideal for small wedding ceremonies like this one. In these cases, couples prefer picturesque spots that do not need too much décor, since they have breathtaking natural beauty!

Even if there are only two persons, we believe the decor should be unique.

Аs an orthodox couple Anastasia and Maxim lighten the candle in the church, a sacred place for Cretans.

After the ceremony the couple went to the bridal suite of an amazing mountain resort in the village Kapetaniana.

We would like to wish the couple all the best and to have a wonderful life together!

  • Backstage sound check before the big event. 🎼🎸🎹Me, personally, I love this young music band from Chania. The front woman Julia has a great voice. But I want to be honest with you: I don’t like to organize any event at the hotels. 🤫🤫🤫And you know why? Because there are too many restrictions. Of cause, the reason is that there are other guests who came here to get some rest and probably don’t really enjoy your loud party 🤷🏼‍♂️🤷🏻‍♀️ I like when people get mad and make some noise! The wedding day is an emotional day and should stay in your memory forever and ever. 🔥🤩🤪💃🏻🕺🏼#letsmakesomenoise #wedincrete #wedding2019 #γάμοςστηνκρήτη #weddinginelounda #weddingcrete #weddinggrece #iliketomoveit #destinationwedding #destinationweddingplanner #engagement #tobebride #couplesgoals #cretewithin #crete #gettingmarriedingreece #weddingbysea #свадьбакрит #свадьбанаморе #свадьбавгреции #организациясвадьбывгреции #критвнутри_свадьба #крит #свадебныйорганизатор #музыканасвадьбе
  • 5 years ago Katerina and Konstantin got married in Crete. I still remember the great party we have arranged at the sandy beach close to Rethymno. 💃🏻🕺🏼🍹🍷🥃🥂 #2013 Here they are again with us to celebrate their 5th anniversary. This time they brought the new family member - a young charming lady Xenia, the 2 years old diamond 🤗🤗🤗 I always say that in our business we don’t have regular clients. People get married once in life time. But after having a great wedding experience in Crete, our couples is coming back again and again : christening, birthdays, family anniversaries. There are many events you can celebrate in Crete.  My best wishes to Kate, Kosta and little Xenia. In 5 years we planed the orthodox ceremony in the church 😉 @nataliia_photography  #cretewithinweddings #familyanniversary #cretewithinweddings_anniversary #wedincrete #weddingcrete #weddingincrete #weddinggreece #wedding2019 #familytraditions #destinationweddingplanner #weddingatthebeach #beachvenue #weddingdecor #свадьбакрит #свадьбанаморе #свадьбавгреции #критвнутри_свадьба #годовщинасвадьбы #организациясвадьбывгреции #организациявечеринок #свадебныйорганизатор #детинасвадьбе #5 #κρήτη #γάμοςστηνκρήτη #κρητημεσαμου #семья #свадебнаяфотография
  • The planning of every wedding has a lot of challenges. But what I really love about this job is that we often become good friends with couple while planning. I feel like a part of a family. So when the day of a wedding arrives, I know tastes and interests of a bride and a groom. Ok, may be not all, yet some. 💡🌟Love my job and love our couples. 😍😍😍 #weddingplanner #destinationweddingplanner #weddingcrete #weddinggreece #tobebride #couplegoals #lovemyjob #wedding2019 #weddingincrete #gettingmarriedingreece @andreas_kamoutsis #критвнутри_свадьба #свадьбакрит #свадьбавгреции #организациясвадьбывгреции #свадебныйорганизатор #свадьбазаграницей #отношения #engagement #помолвка #pizza #weddingpizza #пиццанасвадьбе #крит #критвнутри #cretewithinweddings #cretewithinweddings_me
  • Top-5 of the thank you gifts from Crete 🎁🎁🎁 You all know there is an old tradition to offer “thank you” gifts to the guests on the wedding. If you plan your wedding abroad it makes sense to choose something from the local products. Crete gives you a great choice and here we go 💡💡💡 5️⃣ Cretan raki (no one can resist to well made home raki) 4️⃣ Cretan mountain tea (healthy hot drink with the taste of Psiloritis) ; 3️⃣ Cretan herbs ( rosemary, oregano etc to make a perfect dressing for the salad); 2️⃣ Greek coffee (Greeks are obsessed with a good coffee, though you will be) ..... aaaand the winner is ... 🏆🥇 the Cretan olive oil ! Yes 👍 the best olive oil is produced in Crete  and it’s world wide famous. 🌟 if you have any other ideas how to thank you guests , we would be happy to discuss it with you 🤗📲+306980871621 or www.cretewithinweddings.com #crete #cretewithinweddings #cretewithinweddings_ideas #giftfromcrete #cretanoliveoil #thebestofcrete #weddingcrete #wedding2019 #weddinggreece #destinationwedding #destinationweddingplanner #свадьбакрит #svadbanakrite #свадьбавгреции #организациясвадьбывгреции #критвнутри_свадьба #подаркигостям #спасибо #тусовка #своилюди #свадьбанаморе #свадьбазаграницей #γάμοςστηνκρήτη #κρήτη #παρτυ #ευχαριστώ
  • Here on Crete We love to dance. The Cretan dances as syrtos, pentozali or sousta are always part of the wedding show. And it is always ending with a big mess. 😂🌟 Everybody dances and has fun. Even those who listen to the Cretan music for the first time can’t stop dancing. 😁😁😁By the way do you know that the Cretan music is very different to the Greek one? To order the master-class for Cretan dances seems to be a good solution for the entertaining part of your wedding party💃🏻🕺🏼 Call us to learn more ☎️ +306980871621 (WA/Viber) or info@cretewithinweddings.com 💻 We speak 🇬🇷🇷🇺🇬🇧#wedding2019 #weddingingreece #weddingCrete #cretandance #cretanmusic #destinationweddingplanner #cretewithinweddings #cretewithin #getmarriedingreece #weddingparty #crete #weloveweddings #weddinggreece #γάμοςστηνκρήτη #κρήτη #κρητικοιχοροι #παρτυ #свадьбанакрите #критвнутри #критвнутри_свадьба #крит #свадьбакрит #свадьбагреция #организациясвадьбывгреции #организациясвадьбынакрите #
  • As you might know the Greeks get married in the church. The old traditions are still there and within many years nothing has almost changed. The chapels are cozy and small , and quite often ceremony takes place in the church yard in the front of the main entrance. 💒 If you are an orthodox it's a great opportunity to be married here. Greek was one of the first languages for the Holy Bible ☝️ #crete #cretewithin #cretewithinweddings #cretewithinweddings_orthodox #weddingCrete #weddingincrete #weddinggreece #wedding2019 #orthodoxwedding #destinationwedding #destinationweddingplanner #крит #критвнутри #свадьбакрит #свадьбанакрите #венчание #венчаниевгреции #организациясвадьбывгреции #критвнутри_свадьба Special thanks to the photographer @hannamonika for the amazing images she took 📸
