Anastasia & Maxim: an escape for two

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!

The young people are wearing jeans and fancy t-shirts, there re even the barber-shops and burger corners everywhere, but still the youth is carrying the Cretan culture.
