Crete island has a special place in my heart and i know that our brides to be love it too. The beaches, the landscape, the slow living, the food! I’m enchanted by the country and it's style. Today's graceful countryside wedding inspiration shoot is from Hanna Monika with Crete within and it's the perfect balance of minimalism and classic timeless style. At this gorgeous editorial you’ll find meaningful images with a concept that feels equally authentic, indigenous, warm, organic and elegant. The shoot took place at a peaceful olive grove on cretan highlands.
The wedding planner of Crete Within said to me: "Greece is a world-recognised destination, however, as a local wedding organiser I always wanted to introduce to the brides and grooms to be the mountains of Crete. The best of Crete is far from the coast, where it's so great to spend holidays and vacations. The real spirit of the island is in the mountain valleys, olive groves, family taverns and numerous ancient chapels, whose frescoes date back to the 8th-12th centuries. The island corresponds to all the trends of modern wedding fashion such us natural colours and textures, amazing sandy beaches, 5* hotels and wedding venues for small or large ceremonies”
