From Svetlana of Crete Within Weddings
“Welcome to Crete, the largest island of Greece. Crete is famous for its rich history and unique Highland culture that is still alive. That’s why we like to implement the blend of local traditions and decorations into the celebrations. This time we drew our inspiration from the Cretan wedding custom we have been told by the old man from the village Thronos. A few days before the wedding day a young Cretan bride went to the village spring to do hand washing of the linen and a shirt for a groom. It was a symbol of a woman’s commitment to take care of her man.
So we decided to make an old-fashioned rustic fantasy about the bride’s morning based on this story. All the vendors woke up early before sunrise. Our aim was to capture the fresh morning light that lasted a very short time and then faded away. Our rustic bride is feeding her goats, watering plants, making her tea and dreaming. Then the day of a wedding comes.
Our aim is to promote the idea of using the natural beauty of a place as a part of a wedding setup and decoration. Simple decor details, a bit of flowers and an amazing landscape. That’s enough to decorate your wedding celebration in Crete.
The editorial took place in the early June 2021”
