I usually say that planning and dreaming of a wedding is half the fun! Although it is not my own wedding, I find myself whilst planning together with the couples that I long for the day with a big D as much as they do.
Planning your wedding is not always easy and especially when it is to be held in a place far away from home. I am here at location, in Chania and I will help you book and arrange for your big day. After a couple of years in this profession and all the experience together with many couples, I have both knowledge and solutions to most request and wishes.
My name is Karolin but my nickname is Karro and I arrived in the summer of 1999 to the wonderful island of Crete. For many years I wrote a blog and there I used to get many questions and thoughts about brides who planned to get married in Crete. So after a few years at home with the kids I wanted to try something new and opened the company "Wedding in Crete".
It is an honor to plan a wedding together with the wedding couple and I love my job. The start of the wedding planning with all the questions, trust and confidence that is built up during the process and then finally getting to meet them down here in Crete is a fantastic trip for me and every couple is unique.
It’s the vicar of the Swedish Church of Athens, Björn Kling, who wed the couples here in Chania.
The dates and times for the wedding ceremonies are limited and it is recommended that you book as early as possible. When the vicar lives and works in Athens, his weddings here in Crete are limited and it is not possible to have requests for dates other than those already marked in the wedding calendar.
For the bridal couple who do not find a suitable date for their wedding through the Swedish Church or who do not wish a church wedding, the alternative is a beach ceremony.
The bride and groom marry fast and easy in their home country and then a symbolic wedding is held here with me as a ceremonial holder. Approximately half of the weddings arranged during the summer is of this sort.
