Weddings

Crete Within Weddings makes the wedding’s decisions & preparations a wonderful period, which you will remember with nostalgia!

There is a saying in Greece which goes: “Ιf you do not organise a wedding and if you do not build a house, you do not know what life’s all about”.

Planning a wedding can be stressful, especially when you are in a foreign country. You may not know where to begin, where to acquire information, whom to contact, or even not be able to speak a common language!

  • This pic that I found going through the CWW archives, illustrates perfectly the current state of the wedding industry in Greece 😊⠀
⠀
"Hey, where's everyone?" Wedding planners and vendors are steady and waiting for the July, 1 when the tourist hotels will be open. Then we can see how it will go. I believe September&October 2020 will be 👌⠀
⠀
Meanwhile I use this "pause" to prepare a new documentary. If you follow this account you might know that I am also documentary filmmaker 😎. So far we are doing a film about Santorini, the number 1 wedding destination in Greece, for the TV-channel ARTE. The date of release is 12/08/2020 ⠀
⠀
Soon I ll flood the stories with Santorini's pictures. Normally this island is overcrowded by tourists and the prices for everything are crazy. But not in 2020 😉 #weddingingreece #weddinginsantorini #cretewithinweddings #wedding2020
  • Salt, sea, sun and NO filters! ⠀
I don't want a couple from far away to trust me blindly and usually do videos while scouting the venues. Then I send my findings to a couple to check. ⠀
Finally, making video is helpful. Specially for those brides and grooms who can't travel to Crete in advance. I believe a video gives presence. It seems to me a video helps to feel the vibes of a place a lot stronger then photos. Please share with me what impress you most - 📸 or 📹? ⠀

  • I liked to cross paths with the @tatiana.iplgi and Cyril's gang last summer 😎 They were very natural, groovy and wanted to get MAX from their Big Day. ⠀
They didn't give any chance for the celebrant to perform a solemn ceremony, because they were laughing all way long. The party got started early in the morning and went late September 2019 night 🤩⠀. Pics by @smitfoto ⠀
⠀
Ahhh, I miss my weddings 🥺⠀

  • Would you like to experience a Cretan wedding? Bet you would! It's amazing event in a frame of a touristic or anthropological research. ⠀
For Cretans this is a routine. Every summer every Cretan gets an average of 10 wedding invitations. Meanwhile the Cretan wedding differs a lot for the destination weddings we perform in Crete. Some facts about the Cretan wedding:⠀
⠀
🌸 There's no goal to create smth signature. No, on the contrary, each couple follows the strict rules, established for centuries.⠀
⠀
🌸 Ceremony takes place at the church. A couple sign papers after and gets a legal Marriage Certificate.⠀
⠀
🌸 Number of guests is 500-2000 persons. The Cretan families are huge. They are connected even with those family members who live in the other part of the Earth. ⠀
⠀
🌸 The family and close friends attend the church ceremony (100-200 pers). Other guests join the event at the reception.⠀
⠀
🌸 Cretans celebrate weddings at the large venues, called "kentro". Sometimes they prefer to do it indoors (!!!) -  it's too hot outside, inside there s the A/C. ⠀
⠀
🌸 Some couples support the "old school" celebration: setting tables and the musicians in the village square.  It means the whole village is invited and no one will sleep that night.⠀
⠀
🌸 Each wedding serves a traditional set of dishes: gamopilafo first (rice with boiled lamb), Greek salad, fava, taramasalata, dolmadakia etc (Sure, you had tried these dishes in Greek taverna) The Cretans would be surprised to meet a salad with mozzarella or sushi rolls at the wedding reception. Meanwhile there's a lot of meat dishes. ⠀
⠀
🌸 Celebration lasts till early morning, under accompaniment of Cretan music.⠀
⠀
Take a look at the pictures I did last time I was at the Cretan wedding. It's quite unusal  comparing to what you can see at the wedding blogs 🤪 But I like this mess, I do like it! BTW Do you think the Cretan couples need a wedding planner? 😎  #crete #cretanwedding #weddingincrete #weddingingreece #myfatgreekwedding #greekfamily #cretantradition #greekislandwedding #greekisland #orthodoxwedding #weddingcelebration
  • I don't think the Church organization is needed to connect us to God.  People can do it directly by themselves. However the idea of Easter (Pascha as we say it in Greece) is beautiful 🌿⠀
It's the only religious holiday when I go for a mass. 2020 is an exception. ⠀
And you, do you celebrate  Easter and why?⠀
At this pic you may see the most popular chapel of Crete - Agios Nikolaos in Georgoupoli . Many, many couples chose this place for a wedding ceremony 🌸🌸🌸

  • Recently I was reading some wedding blogs that shared the ideas on how to adopt a wedding to online format while quarantine. ⠀
Well, it all sounds interesting... ⠀
Many fields of our lives go online. But don't we perform weddings to get together with our dearests? Could a zoom conference replace a real life format? What do you think? 🙂 ⠀

  • Hey there! It's me, Sveta, your wedding planner 🌸🌸🌸 Last month was all about decisions. Due to the COVID-19 our weddings are mostly postponed to autumn 2020-spring 2021.⠀
Now I have time to tell you more about myself and wedding planning in Crete, the island I ❤️⠀ ⠀
Some facts about me that help me to be a great wedding planner:⠀
⠀
• I am international: speak 4 languages and lived at 4 different, really different countries (important to understand people needs and respect the difference of mentalities)⠀
⠀
• Born and raised in Moscow, being 1/8 Cretan (perfect mix for the service provider)⠀
⠀
• Studied event management in the Moscow State University (business approach)⠀
⠀
• Studied filmmaking 🎥 (yeah!) in the New York Film Academy (highly artistic approach)⠀
⠀
•  Was involved in wedding business as a videographer since 2005 (That's why I pay a lot of attention to the artistic approach when it's about photography and videography)⠀
⠀
•  Moved to Crete in 2008 (I planed to spend one year max here🤣🤣🤣)⠀
⠀
• Started Crete Within Weddings in 2010 after visiting the island of santorini (that was fun. Should write a book about it 🤪)
⠀
•  Made 4 documentary feature films and got nomination for the Best National film in Russia 🌟 Google it: Cardiopolitika (That's what I am doing in winter time)
⠀
•  Did 164 weddings. In Crete 😍 aaand... never been married 😆
⠀

  • 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🤗 ⠀

  • 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. Keep it in mind 😍 photos by @irini_koronaki_photography #baptismincrete #kidsbaptism #vowrenewals #familyanniversary #orthodoxchurch #christianity #crete #weddingincrete #weddingingreece #destinationweddinggreece #destinationweddingcrete #weddingplannercrete #happilyeverafter #couplegoals #православноекрещение #крещениенакрите #критвнутри #организациясвадьбывгреции
