Choosing Nina and Elizabeth to help plan our wedding was the best decision I ever made. They are nothing short of amazing! So many of our guests have told us it’s the best wedding they’d ever been to. Our wedding would not have been the magical day it turned out to be without Nina and her tireless efforts.

She went well beyond her duties in making our wedding so amazing. Nina held my hand and kept me sane from beginning to end and is on point with communication…nothing is too much trouble. The venue and suppliers she recommended were truly fantastic.

All I can say is Thank you SO much to you both for making our wedding day so incredible! We can’t imagine how much work went into everything you did, but we know it turned out absolutely perfectly! For that we will forever be grateful! I wish we could do it all again!

Hi Nina and Eizabeth,

We want to thank you so much for creating such a special wedding day. It was everything we had hoped for. It all ran so smoothly, even with the lockdown measures! We both had an amazing time as had all our guests. We’ve received numerous compliments about all the details that made up the wedding.

We feel so lucky that this all managed to go ahead in the end and I still can’t get over how smoothly it went and that my attention wasn’t taken up with any details because there was such good management and organisation behind it. Thank you times a dozen!! Xxx

I would highly recommend Weddings in Crete, Nina and Elizabeth have been amazing in such an exceptional year. We had to cancel our wedding in May due to Covid lock down. We decided to book for September thinking things would have returned to some form of normality. However Nina and Elizabeth worked through this and we had our amazing day on the 9th September. Koumos Is a truly special place to get married, the staff were great and food was amazing.

I cannot thank Nina and Elizabeth enough, if you want a really special wedding day with that personal touch book.

We got married earlier this year, and we chose Nina to be our wedding planner. Even though we weren’t sure whether we needed a wedding planner at first, it turned out it was actually vital.

One of the main reasons we chose Nina was that she helped us find a perfect venue for our wedding reception. From the first point of contact, she got exactly what we were looking for. From that moment, she remained in communication with most vendors, which means we didn’t have to worry about sorting out all minor details.

What was great, Nina split the whole planning process into simple steps. Thanks to that, none of the planning felt ever rushed or overwhelming. She even had scripts for the ceremony, vows and readings, which really helped to draw our own.

We were organising the wedding during the pandemic, which made everything a bit more stressful, however, Nina kept us informed on local restrictions at all times. In fact, due to Covid, a few days before the big day, we decided to move the wedding date to a day before. Nina contacted all the vendors and arranged the change with everyone making the whole process a lot less stressful. And whilst she was organising all the details we had an opportunity to really enjoy our time in Crete. The day before the wedding we went snorkelling!

Despite the pandemic and restrictions, the big day turned out pretty perfect, and all guests absolutely loved it. Thank you very much for your help throughout the whole year. If any of our friends are planning a wedding in Crete, we will be sure to recommend you.

Weddings in Crete - Couple Neha and Nick L

Neha & Nick

My now husband and I had lofty ideas about organising our own wedding in Crete. Then we realised just how difficult that would be with trying to manage the process remotely as well as the language barrier. We found Nina and Elizabeth online and we are so very grateful we did.

Nina helped us with all the details and was available every step of the way. She advised on the suitability of locations, the availability of particular flowers and basically held our hands through the whole process. She even dealt with a panicked phone call from me when we were giving notice at our local registry office.

We could not have done this without Nina and I cannot praise her enough. Thank you for all your support and assistance!!

We had a small wedding in June and had a clear idea of what we wanted our wedding to look like. Throughout the planning process, Nina was always on hand to answer any queries and provide suggestions. There was absolutely no pressure to buy a particular package, we very much had free reign over each element of our day which made it very personal and special to us.

Nina organised our wedding day beautifully so that it flowed seamlessly and we were able to enjoy it completely stress-free. From decorating and arranging catering at our ceremony venue, to lighting the table candles at just the right moment at dinner, Nina organised each element of our day subtly and perfectly.

Elizabeth delivered a beautiful ceremony which allowed us to express ourselves in our own way on the day and was also so helpful at the legalisation ceremony. Both were invaluable when it came to organising the paperwork and translations. Our guests loved the day and it was everything we had hoped for and more.

My wife Sophie and I visit Crete every year, so we thought we knew it well, but when it came to planning our wedding in Crete for May 2022, we didn’t now where to start! Thankfully we found Nina and Elizabeth. Nina was incredibly helpful, organised and she really helped us make our dream wedding a reality, from start to finish. We cannot thank you enough. Nina was exactly the calming influence we needed, as she made sure everything went to plan, so we could enjoy our special day. We truly couldn’t have done it without you and we’re so glad we picked Weddings In Crete. We would highly recommend that anyone reading this does the same!

My wedding date was August 1, 2021. As you can imagine it was a tumultuous time to plan a wedding over the course of the pandemic and I am so blessed and fortunate to have connected with Nina (the wedding planner) who made my wedding dream a reality.

I was glad to experience an all outdoors wedding, distance between tables with guests seated close with their families and close friends, allowing for a COVID safe wedding that didn’t feel weighed down with COVID by masks, stuffiness, fear, etc.

So many times, we weren’t sure if this would happen. I allowed myself one change the date from June to August, and looking back at the day it was well worth the risk. All parts came together beautifully with the perfect balance of “planned-ness” and impromptu to my liking.

Nina was faced with unique challenges as this was a “destination wedding” in a place very near and dear to me. She helped me to design a truly Greek-American wedding that was both contemporary while keeping some traditional aspects reflecting the Greek culture as well. She even helped to translate and deliver the wedding ceremony in 2 languages to cater to 50% local Greek guests and 50% American travelers.

I would 100% recommend Weddings in Crete and am happy to be a reference for anyone who reaches out.

Thea & Eddy

We got married last September and had been working with Nina and Elizabeth at Weddings in Crete for about 2 years to plan our wedding throughout the covid pandemic. We couldn’t have asked for more from them!

From first contact they put our minds at ease and were immediately more friendly and flexible than any other wedding planners we had contacted. Most companies insist on selling expensive wedding packages, whereas Nina and Elizabeth allow you to build your own day, choosing the elements you want for your own wedding and you simply pay for the things you ask for, making it far more personal and affordable.

Throughout the whole process they were so professional and knowledgeable. Even with the covid pandemic throwing everything into question, they were constantly flexible and reliable. They made planning a wedding, which can be extremely stressful even under normal circumstances, feel easy and we felt totally at ease knowing the wedding was in their hands.

When it came to the actual day, the weather wasn’t on our side but Nina arranged back up plans and our day turned out to be even more perfect and beautiful than we could ever have imagined! We were able to relax and enjoy every bit of our day with no stress whatsoever thanks to Nina who organised everything seamlessly.

It honestly was stunning and I can’t believe how lucky we were to have found Weddings in Crete! Our guests were blown away by everything from the venue to the food to the entertainment, as were we. I feel like we struck gold with Nina and Elizabeth and we will be forever thankful ❤️
