Winter promo shoot in Botanical Garden, below “Lefka Ori” mountains, Chania, Crete

True Cretan Rustic Elopement


Sunny and crispy winters in Crete can inspire many weddings to be hosted in the peaceful atmosphere of island’s nature. Far away from the tourist crowds, villages at the bottom of the White Mountains offer stunning soft light and wild natural greenery.

Archondissa blended wonderfully with her laced bridal gown and rich jewellery while Giorgos, in his comfortable dark blue suit, matched the Cretan rustic roughness.


The nature of the winter season, rich in olive leaves, oranges and earthy shades of Cretan stones, formed a stunning backdrop for this photo shoot concept and design.


Similar to the life in Crete during the mild winter months, all the elements used in this wedding promo shoot were of a natural colors’ palette, creating an elegant and natural wedding look: green, grey, white with touches of seasonal flowers picked directly from the gardens.
