We arrange the evening!




We at Destination Platanias would love to help you with your wedding dinner arrangements here in Crete. All the details will be considered according to your wishes. Either you wish for a full evening at the beach front restaurant or a more traditional restaurant with Cretan music. We will help you to make the decisions with the menu, the place and the decoration. In the latest years we have cooperated with Karolin from Sweden.




Dinner decoration

Destination Platanias will help you to decorate your wedding dinner table according to your wishes. With our experience and knowledge, we will create a concept with true harmony.

Would you prefer traditional Greek blue colors, classic white and olive green or colorful summer flowers? All the concepts will be presented to you and your partner in good time for you to make the final decision.

Dinner Menu

Tell us your wishes regarding the menu and we will find the correct choices for it with our local connections among the restaurant owners. We will present to you different options that we know are very tasteful and popular.

The evening can also include a Cretan dance show and you have a possibility to learn the famous Zorba dance as well. Or maybe you would rather have a salsa evening with latin dancers? We are here to provide different options for you to make your big evening unforgettable.

Who is Karolin?

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.

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.


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.

BEACH ceremony

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.
