Rachael & Christian – Palm Garden Wedding

A Dream Come True Wedding

When Rachael & Christian, our wonderful couple from the U.K. contacted us and requested our assistance in organizing their Wedding in Crete we were over the moon.  Since they had never visited our island we suggested that they visit prior for a “Go See” (A service where we visit all potential venues and locations).

From the first moment our couple requested an intimate wedding ceremony overlooking the ocean and a romantic dinner reception in the luxury of their private villa. After having visited many locations we were happy to have found the ideal venue for them.

Rachael & Christian arrived on our island a few days prior to their wedding in order to settle in and enjoy our warm sunny weather. Having chosen for the ceremony the exotic gardens of  Creta Marine Hotel, a 4* hotel  belonging to the Iberostar Hotel Group situated outside the city of Rethymno, Rachael our bride and her gals stayed overnight and enjoyed a fun and relaxed evening together before the “Big Day”.

In the morning of the wedding we had a surprise….

Our brides bestie from the U.K. arrived at the hotel to visit her for breakfast. Words cannot describe the reaction Rachael had & the tears of joy.  After their breakfast our team of beauticians arrived on the site to take over . The girls loved Nikos and his team, they laughed their hearts out, drank champagne and enjoyed a light lunch while getting prepared. Later that day Ioannis,  their photographer arrived to take some pre-wedding photos of our bride and her gals capturing every fine detail. 

The ceremony was situated at the  palm garden overlooking the ocean. Our creative team transformed the area beautifully using sky blue and white colors with White Gerberas and Blue Orchids. Everything was perfect for the procession.  

While Christian and all the guest gathered our DJ played soft music while awaiting for our brides grand entrance. Followed from her sister who had the grand role as her maid of honor Rachael accompanied from her mum walk down the isle.  

As the couple exchanged their vowels and said their I Do’s tears of happiness filled the area.  

Following the ceremony everyone gathered for some family shots and then for a champagne toast and a variety of canapes. The couple then left for their photo shoot within the grounds of the hotel where they took beautiful pictures in the gardens and by the pool while their guests were transferred back to the couples’ private villa for the reception. 

As the couple arrived at the reception, their guests awaited them, showered them with rice and rose petals as Mr & Mrs for the first time. The dinner was set by the pool overlooking the ocean. The area was decorated in the same tones as the ceremony with tea lights hung over to add a romantic scene.

Everyone then gathered while enjoying a champagne toast and the beautiful sunset for a photo session overlooking the breathtaking view of the ocean.

Every fine detail was thought out from the stationary to the wedding favors, the personalized menus and the napkins, Katharina & Spiros our creative directors only strive was to give Rachael and Christian the wedding of their dreams.

While enjoying a delicious buffet style dinner with everything from grilled prawns to Crete’s famous signature lamb dish named “Kleftiko” exchanged some speeches and watched a touching video that Rachael’s mum had prepared as a surprise. 

For dessert our couple chose a mouth watering fruits platter with pineapple, melons, grapes etc and because  a wedding isn’t a wedding without a cake they had a custom mini cake 3 tier wedding cake in chocolate, lemon and Vanilla. 

As the dinner came to an end our couple stood in the spotlight for their first dance while their family and friends circled them with a sparkle sent off. The DJ turned up the volume and they danced their way into the night till the early hours of the morning…..

… And we could only wish them a lifetime of happiness.
