Crete offers a big selection of options for wedding locations to choose from. It can host high-end weddings but also boho weddings. It can be a luxurious wedding but also a minimal and contemporary wedding.
During the summer of 2018, I did cooperate with pretty Eva and Eviva Weddings, in order to be the wedding photographer for Grethe and Stathis, Mikela and Vaggelis and Anushka and Joe. Three amazing, beautiful and different weddings!
Grethe and Stathis chose the amazing resort of Blue Palace in Elounda to be their wedding location for a pre-wedding party at the beach and the bride and groom preparation and wedding reception to follow, the day after, at the resort. A very elegant and romantic set up for such a great wedding with guests from all over the world!
Mikela and Vaggelis got married at S.Nickolas at Alikarnassos and a wedding party followed at the center of the city. A young couple full of energy, where Mikela’s pregnancy didn’t limit the high party vibes!
Anushka and Joe had a white theme prewedding party, and the next day followed a high-end amazing wedding at Amirandes.
Anushka’s attention to detail gave an amazing result where everything reached perfection with the assistance of the wedding planner and her team! https://www.mycretewedding.gr/notes/blog/2018/july/23/beautiful-video-of-an-elegant-wedding
