“Both my husband and I wanted a small, untraditional and exotic wedding. So we set out to find the right destination. We truly thought we would only have 10 people who would make the long trip, and that was ok. Whoever came would capture our casual ceremony on a smart phone and then we would find a place to eat. Boy were we wrong. We ended up choosing Crete and sent out a quick Facebook invite. No seriously. We just wanted to get a head count of peeps that would be crazy enough to come. Before we knew it, we had roughly 40 commitments. And then we realised this was going to be way more special and bigger then we thought.”

Katrina’s and Alan’s wedding was something very unique for us. We were able to travel to this beautiful island in Greece for this occasion and stay in a charming little village of Elounda. The village is just next to the mystical island of Spinalonga, where the wedding took place. Spinalonga has a remarkable history. It used to be a part of the island before the 16th century. Then the Venetians cut a piece of the peninsula and made the island. Spinalonga was used as fort that protected the entryway to their port.

Two centuries later it was in Ottomans hands, but mostly it’s known for it’s recent history. From 1903 to 1957 the island was a home for a leper colony.¬†Walking around the island today feels like traveling back in that time. A lot of the walls have been restored, and walking through the “main street”, it actually feels like a charming little mediterranean town.

Katrina and Alan had a very simple plan:

  1. Bring people over from all around to come and enjoy a long weekend on Crete.
  2. Get a boat and go to Spinalonga for the cermony
  3. Return to mainland and party!

Checked, checked aaaaaand checked. We loved how simple, yet how special their day was. Full of emotions, laughing, funny and a bit embarrassing stories, hugs, lots of ouzo and delicious greek food. And the people,… wow, that was one great crowd! Thank you K&A for such an adventure!
