Wedding season will soon be upon us, and if you are planning your wedding you need look no further than Crete. We specialise in tailoring the perfect wedding that is completely suited to you. Create stunning memories by saying your vows overlooking stunning scenery, enjoying a luxurious stay in one of our beautiful Crete villas and indulging in some wonderful Greek culture on your big day.
Stunning Ceremony Locations
We have handpicked some truly breathtaking locations for your wedding ceremony.
The beaches at Almirida and Kalives offer the opportunity for a wedding with a difference. Gather your friends and family onto the sand and say your vows as the waves roll in, creating some stunning photo opportunities and making the most of the amazing weather we have here in Crete.
If you would like something more private, why not have your ceremony located in your very own holiday villa in Crete? Overlooking the sea or the mountains, have a ceremony that remains special to you and a few select guests.
If you would like a ceremony that can accommodate more guests, get the full Cretan experience with a ceremony at the delightful chapel of St. Lazaros in the charming old town of Rethymnon. We can tailor decorations and flower arrangements to your preference, so you can focus on walking down the aisle.
We also offer a selection of traditional Crete villa holidays with gardens for your weddings. These are an excellent option for larger groups and offer a bespoke package for a wonderful ceremony and a memorable reception all in one stunning location.
Reception to Remember
No matter how large or small your wedding may be, we can offer you the perfect wedding reception venue.
At Pure Crete, we pride ourselves on our ability to provide a fantastic reception from Cretan influences. Your guests will receive the very best of Cretan entertainment at your wedding reception, with live music and traditional Cretan dancers both on offer.
Traditionally, Cretan reception meals begin with a selection of appetizers followed by a choice of roast pork or lamb, typically sourced from the very best local produce. We can also provide a traditional Greek wedding cake made with light sponge and butter cream.
We can offer you and your guests the wedding reception of your dreams, and we will do our very best to adhere to your personal preferences regarding seating arrangements, decorations, food and entertainment.
