Weddings in Rethymnon, Crete

A wedding in Crete offers both charm and character. Crete has its own dialect and the locals are very proud of their Cretan origin and are delighted to welcome you to share their beautiful island on your wedding day.

With a mild climate Crete is one of the sunniest Greek islands. With more than 300 days of sunshine a year, a Crete wedding is ideal for those wanting to escape the unreliable British weather!

Our weddings in Crete take place in the beautiful town of Rethymnon. Rethymnon is the third largest town in Crete, a town of two halves, one a huge expansive soft sandy beach and the other an old charming town with its mix of architecture and history.

Rethmynon is full of magnificent beaches, interesting historical sites, churches, lovely villages and lively resorts, a perfect location for your wedding abroad.

Your wedding in Rethymnon – Venues

Our beach weddings in Rethymnon are very popular and it’s easy to see why, the beaches are beautiful and where better to have your wedding than on a soft sandy beach with the waves breaking gently behind you and the sweet sea breeze cooling you. Rethymnon is one of the only locations in Crete where you can have a legal beach wedding so no need to visit the town hall beforehand.

As well as our beach weddings we can also offer you a traditional farm in the countryside, a private garden fringed with palm trees and stunning sea views and an Anicent Fortezza wedding if you’d prefer to step back in history on your wedding day. We have something for every taste and style of wedding, just tell us your ideas and we’ll help you to create your dream wedding vision.

Hi Lisa,

I’m really well! Slowly settling back into reality of life back home (and the million work emails to catch up on! Sorry for the late reply to your email caused by this). Wish we were still in Crete!

Thank you so much for the preview photos. They are amazing! Please pass on our thanks to Hannah and her husband who did an amazing job both on the day and seeing the resulting photos now. It was a pleasure to have them at the wedding and we will be forever grateful.

The planner in Crete was absolutely fantastic.

Thank you for all of your and Matt’s help in planning the wedding. It’s a cliché I know but it really was the best day of our lives. Thank you for all of your work to make it a reality. The venue and setting were everything we’d hoped for and more. Everything on the day ran perfectly. All of our guests loved it. We’ll treasure the memories always.

I know you don’t book the bride and grooms accommodation but I’d also like to let you know in case you get asked by other Crete brides about where to stay, the boutique hotel we stayed in, Mythos Suites Hotel (http://www.mythos-crete.gr/en/ ) was one of the best decisions we made in the whole wedding. They could not have possibly done more for us to make our stay special. As a surprise they decorated the whole courtyard of the hotel in our wedding colours before we woke up on the morning of the wedding. They did a buffet of nibbles for us and the wedding party for whilst we were getting ready. Rearranged the time of the maids to suit us whilst we were getting ready. All of family are in love with the place and have vowed to go back (us included). It’s a much more personal feel than the big hotels. They really deserve the business so please let any other brides know who are looking at options.

Thank you so much again!
Mrs Mack 

Hi Matt & Lisa,

Matt & myself just wanted to once again say thank you so much for all of your help with making our wedding so perfect. You were always so helpful & coped with all of our silly questions.

It was such an amazing day & we’d love to do it all over again!!

Many many thanks,

From Nat & Matt – the new Mr & Mrs Elliott!

I hope you are well. Just wanted to say thank you so so much , Gavin and I had the most perfect day possible. The team in Crete has been great, the photographer and make up artist were out of this world and the hotel made our wedding like a celebrity wedding, we could not be happier.
Thanks again

Hi Lisa
As promised, I said we would get back to you once we were home and had everything sorted etc. We are now back at work and therefore back to reality after our amazing wedding in Crete!
You probably got the impression from my below email that we had the most perfect day we could have wished for! Thank you so much for all of your help in organising our big day and ensuring it went so smoothly! Thank you also to Matt for organising the legal side of things and providing us with clear instructions on what we needed to do and when!
The hotel we stayed in was amazing which, together with the hot sunny weather and beautiful surroundings, got our holiday off to a great start. As soon as we met with Caroline we knew we were in good hands, she went through all the finer details with us and took us down to the venue to explain exactly what would happen and when. She was there on the day to ensure everything went to plan and was just lovely! She even assisted with getting a guests SLR camera back after he had left it in the taxi after arriving at the beach! She had everything under control!
The photographer was great too, she had such a good rapport with us and all of the guests, she kept everyone in line with great humour. We are really pleased with the sample of photos which we have seen so far and cannot wait to see the rest.
The ceremony was perfect – it was a lovely service and the words were very fitting. We also got a document to keep with the words in Greek and English, which is a nice momento. Arron’s young brother did a reading at the ceremony which he had written himself and set everyone off crying, it was very emotional (I just hope I’m not crying on ALL of the photos!).
Everyone commented that they really enjoyed the food and there was certainly plenty of it! I just wish I could have eaten more! The cake was beautiful too!
The beach party was definitely a good choice for our family, and we’re so glad we chose to go ahead with it after being a bit indecisive! It was definitely worth it and it was great dancing under the stars until 4am! One guest in particular was a bit worse for wear by the end of the night, too much Raki and Ouzo!
Finally, the DJ did a great job in getting everyone up dancing and the staff during the reception and beach party were so attentive and couldn’t do enough for everyone. The young barman at towards the end of the night came over and said that they do a lot of weddings, but ours was one of the best he had worked at, he loved that everyone was smiling and dancing and having a good time! Equally our guests said that they had a brilliant time and some commented it had been the best wedding they had been to, which is a great compliment!
I could go on for a while but this email is already really long, so all that is left to say is thanks again for all of your efforts in making our big day so special!
Thanks
Mr and Mrs King
Hi Lisa,
We are both extremely happy with how the day went. We couldn’t of hoped it went better. All the staff at the farm were fantastic. Annika was amazing, very organised and kept that side of the wedding stress free for us. A lot of our guest were blown away by the venues and said its been the best wedding they’ve been to. We can send you some photos when we get them?
Kind regards,
Stu & Maxine
Hi Lisa
Am finally back to reality (work) after returning from Crete.
Chris and I would firstly like to say a huge thanks to you, Matt and all the team out in Crete for the most amazing day and night that we could have hoped for.
The attention to detail was faultless and we have received so many compliments from our guests on what an amazing venue and service we all received; we truly could not have wished for a more perfect day!
Chris and I will always be grateful for the wonderful memories we have from our wedding. Nothing was too much trouble for everyone and everything we asked for was accommodated. Thank you for making our wedding so special!
Everyone has said how everything was planned to precision that they day and night just flowed with something different happening at every minute.
The food was amazing, and it just kept coming and coming, although we all still managed to eat the evening buffet, which was very welcome after the amount of shots and cocktails that were consumed.
Jo & Chris
Hi Lisa,
Just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work and for a fantastic job in planning our wedding in Crete. What can I say, it’s was perfect. It was beyond our expectations and I would honestly not change a single thing about our wedding day. Even the weather was perfect.
The team on the day did a fabulous job of dressing the venue and the tables, the staff were fantastic, making sure all our guests were looked after and the drinks were flowing. The food was just delicious and plentiful, everybody commented on how delicious the food was and how full they were.
The venue and the staff just made our day even more special. All our guests commented on what a beautiful location it was and how the staff made it even more special. One of the waiters who the lads nick named ‘George’ for some reason, made sure the raki was flowing. Strangely enough he even looked like Dan! I will send you a picture, you need to see it to believe it! ‘George’ said our wedding was the best day he had had at work in the last 5 years and one of the other waitresses said to me ‘Your wedding is like a movie.’ You can not ask for better compliments than that. It was also made even more special by all our guests that made the journey to celebrate with us.
We really can not put into words how perfect the day was, we just wish we could do it all again.
Please send our special thank you to everyone who made our wedding day the day it was.
It’s the best wedding I’ve ever been to!!
Thank you,
Nicola and Dan Bluck
Hi Lisa
The wedding was amazing.
I will write to you with some feedback next week once I am back at work, as I am still on leave and visiting family this week.
