    Castle wedding

    Antony and I actually chose our wedding venue before finding our wedding planner Vasiliki of Luxury Weddings. I am a historian and Anthony is an architect and getting married in a venue with some historical significance was an added bonus to us. Antony and I got engaged 3 years ago, he dropped down on one knee outside the Fortezza, a Venetian fortress in Rethymnon, Crete. We had talked about the possibility of getting married in Crete and luckily came across Luxury Weddings. We saw that they hosted weddings in various venues in Crete and fell in love with the pictures they sent us of Fraggokastelo, a Venetian castle on the South Coast of Crete. Vasiliki arranged for us to have a viewing of the site over Skype as we could not be in Crete until a week before our wedding and we were blown away by the beauty of the place. Over the months leading up to our wedding day we had countless Skype meetings and I appreciated that Vasiliki was always open to creative ideas to personalize our day and make it special to us.
    When we actually saw Fraggokastelo, a week before our wedding we were astounded by its natural beauty. Luxury wedding set us up along with our family and guests in a luxury hotel on the South coast so we could enjoy the stunning landscape and be close to the wedding venue. The hotel staff was attentive and kind and we were so pleased with our choice.
    What sets Vasiliki and the staff of Luxury Weddings apart from other wedding planners in a nutshell are their exceptional organizational skills, their vast experience in the hospitality industry and their effective communication skills. We were able to enjoy the experience and have a wedding day with little to worry about because Vasiliki was always next to us, making sure everything was running as it should.
    If we had any tips to give to couple getting married abroad for the first time it would be to listen to your wedding planners as they have the knowledge and experience of what works well. We highly recommend Vasiliki of Luxury Weddings and thank them for supporting us every step of the way to getting married.

    Our wedding in a vineyard

    You could be thinking, what would possess an already married couple approaching their 50’s to hire wedding planners, get fancied up and renew their wedding vows in front of several dozen of their closest friends? The truth is John and I didn’t have much cash to throw around when we got married in our twenties. He rented a tux, I bought a second hand vintage frock and we had a brief registry office ceremony on a weekday with a few family members.
    Twenty years later, with a bit of money saved and some help from Luxury Weddings in Crete by Vasiliki, John and I got to combine our vow renewal with a holiday in Crete and get a bit of the glamour and glitz that we had missed out on while celebrating our love the first time around.
    We are big wine lovers and love the outdoors, so when Vasiliki offered a Cretan vineyard to us as a potential venue we were taken with the idea straight away. Our family has grown somewhat over the years and we wanted a big enough space in nature where everyone could show up and simply have a good time. The vineyard itself was a beauty of nature so we decided to keep it simple and Eleni and Vasiliki added some simple yet tasteful touches to the area. Some gardenias on the tables, tea lights and lanterns, are all that the place needed to light up. One of my favourite décor touches by Luxury Weddings… the desert and cocktails tables made from old rustic wine barrels, fantastic idea from Vasiliki. The caterers prepared a variety of high quality Mediterranean dishes all paired well with the different wines produced from the vineyard. John and I exchanged our vows in the natural evening light in front of our family and friends.
    I hold these memories close to my heart as I do the care, effort and energy I saw Eleni, Vasiliki and the staff at Luxury Weddings in Crete put into our special day. Luxury Weddings has raised the bar for Cretan hospitality.

    Kate & Antony, Somerset, UK

    Approachable, warm and diligent, these are the three words that come to mind when I think about my wedding planner, Vasiliki. Having spent several summers island hopping around Greece with my fiancé, we had decided that Crete would be an incredibly romantic destination for us to tie the knot in. Crete has always held a special place in our hearts.
    However, organizing an overseas wedding ourselves seemed like a big challenge. After many late nights trawling the internet for wedding planners we came across Luxury Weddings in Crete by Vasiliki and were soon provided with exactly the right support to create our fairy tale wedding in Crete.
    From the first point of contact till the day after our marriage, Vasiliki and her team took care of every single detail and met every request my fiancé and I made, while at the same time sticking to our budget. A lot of the planning in the early days took place on Skype and we were able to ask questions, make decisions and changes at any point. This meant that we actually had time to enjoy the process and each other leading up to our big day. Vasiliki helped us decide on a wedding style that would incorporate both mine and my fiancés tastes and we decided to have a symbolic wedding to celebrate our love.
    Luxury Weddings gave us a huge range of venues and we decided that Kalypso Cretan Village Resort would be the best venue for us beach lovers .The resort is absolutely beautiful, has a small private beach area, a spa and restaurants, so our family members and friends were able to stay with us and enjoy a bit of a different setting to our closest beach to Taunton.
    Having a symbolic wedding meant that we could design a wedding especially for us and narrowing down the theme, style and content was a huge task that we simply could not have done without our wedding planners. Vasiliki were quick to assemble a team of professionals including photographers, caterers, florists and musicians, who, between them, took care of every aspect of our wedding day. Everything ran smoothly on the day, our guests gathered on the beach and watched us exchange our vows in front of the sea. Luxury team had set up white canopies so everyone would have enough shade and we had a violinist playing music as we entered the area. We had our reception in the hotel due to windy weather ( Vasiliki always made sure to have a back-up plan) and the caterers used fresh local ingredients to create a range of traditional dishes that we knew our family members and guests would enjoy.
    I cannot imagine the process of organizing an overseas wedding without Vasiliki’s help and am eternally grateful to them and their staff for their huge support, their eye for detail and planning, and their attentiveness throughout our wedding journey. We would have been lost without them and highly recommend them to anyone considering Crete to be their magical wedding destination.
