When you picture your dream wedding, do you see yourselves saying ‘I do’ under the warm sun, toes sinking into cool sand, with crystal clear waters gently lapping in the background? Well, Bognor Regis won’t cut the mustard. So why not skip the UK for Crete?
As the largest Greek island, Crete is home to super-ancient Minoan ruins, stunning beaches, and sparkling Mediterranean seas – ideal for wedding snaps that will make everyone left at home jealous.
If you think that planning a destination wedding is stressful, don’t. You can leave the details of your perfect Crete wedding to The Wedding Travel Company. We’ll help you plan everything and help you select the ideal Greek wedding venue. Crete’s dazzling venues range from rustic, intimate venues to modern plush hotels on the beach.
Knock your guests’ socks off at the five-star Sensatori Resort in Crete, a stylish beachfront Crete wedding venue. Say ‘I do’ at their charming onsite chapel, St. Eftihis, before heading out to the beach for photos against a dreamy Mediterranean backdrop.
Or perhaps you’d prefer the beachside Amirandes Hotel, where you and your wedding guests can unwind in private villas – and your own private pool. The Amirandes Hotel also has an incredible spa on site, ideal for pampering, relaxation, and those last minute pre-wedding beauty treatments.
If you like chic, minimalist surroundings, The White Palace is just the venue. This striking blue-and-white themed resort right next to the Aegean Sea is pure wow-factor. Choose between tying the knot on the beach, or in a private chapel.
Crete has heaps to offer everyone. History buffs will love exploring Knossos, a huge Bronze archaeological site that was once the centre of ancient Minoan civilisation, and likely Europe’s oldest city. Meanwhile, the Heraklion Archeological Museum is a perfect place to see ancient finds from all over Crete and dive into its colourful history.
Outdoorsy folks will love exploring Crete’s breath-taking natural scenery. Hike the Samaria Gorge – the longest in Europe at 11 miles – and you’ll be rewarded with epic views of the Libyan Sea. Or check out the spectacular Psychro Cave, the most sacred of 3,000 caves on the island, which legend states is the birthplace of the almighty Zeus.
Crete is also ideal for trips out to idyllic fishing villages, and jaw-dropping beaches, such as the Elafonissi on the west of the island. With incredible pink sand, and clear turquoise waters, it has to be seen to be believed.
Once the official ceremonies are over, you’ll find Crete is an awesome place for newlyweds. You can stroll through the labyrinthine streets of Chania old town, take a boat to a secluded cove to get some well-deserved couple-time, or just hole yourselves up in the luxury resort. Your guests will find there’s plenty to do, whether hiking, exploring ruins, or just kicking back on the beach and gorging on amazing Greek food and wine.
