A sweet love story.
Chloe and Tom said their I’do’s on a beautiful cliff top private garden with the most amazing sea views and this is their story.
In their words
We chose Crete for our destination as this is where we got engaged in September 2020, as soon as I saw the venue on your website I fell in love with the views and just visioned how perfect it would be for us to take family and friends back to the island to celebrate our wedding, and it really was so special.
|The Details |
My wedding dress was Nadia by Enzoani’s ‘Blue’ range. Ironically it was the first dress I tried on in the first shop! I instantly fell in love, I tried a few more dresses on but just kept comparing them all back to Nadia, so I knew it was the perfect dress. I loved how the dress had detachable veils off the shoulder, they gave a beautiful dramatic entrance but I had the option to detach them for the evening when having a dance with the guests!
With being on a grassed venue, I opted against the stilettos as wedding shoes as I knew that would be a disaster waiting to happen! I chose some white flat sandals with white pearls over the front, from Quiz. I appreciated the flats especially by the end of the night when I was still able to dance away and could see the people in heals suffering!
With my dress being such a statement I opted against any necklaces or excessive jewellery. I was savvy and used my earrings as my “something old” and wore a pair of my nana’s diamond stud earrings, she’s no longer with us so it was comforting that I was able to take a part of her to our big day.
These were chosen from ASOS, we went for a pastel blue colour with being a ‘sea view’ venue, the colours really did blend beautiful with the ocean backdrop!
The grooms suit, best man, father of the bride and back up best man (as the original best man’s passport only arrived 4 days before the flight!!!) were all from Cavani. We wanted a light material with it being so hot, and the tan colour really suited Tom as soon as he tried it on so we knew this was the one!
We designed our own seating plan and had this professionally printed. We ordered our cake topper from Etsy, along with our table place cards, and our favours.
One thing I would highly recommend is taking along disposable cameras for the wedding. We took one and can’t wait to have the photos developed, we only remembered about the camera late into the night do after everyone had a couple of drinks so I imagine there will be some great shots which will have us laughing!
