Ceremony & Wedding speech
This is all about you.
Civil, legally valid wedding
The bureaucratic part
It is possible for legally valid ceremonies on Crete to be carried out in some of the most beautiful places Crete has to offer – this applies to non-natives as well. Sensevent does all the necessary paperwork for you. (Costs may vary, please ask us in advance)
In many places you can combine your civil marriage with your personal symbolic wedding. That’s how we can create your very own, personal and emotional wedding – including legal validity and marriage certificate.
Many couples do not consider a shared last name or a signature as necessary, or have that part covered in another way.
In many cases that part has already happened (for some couples even years back). That’s why many of them like to have their wedding anniversary as a reason for a symbolic ceremony (for example for their Tin Wedding after 10, or their Silver or Gold Wedding after 25 or 50 years respectively).
Symbolic wedding ceremony or renewal of vows
Time just for you.
To describe what makes up your two personalities
and what it was that made you get together;
how you grew together and beyond yourself
– for each other and for yourself at the same time;
to be thankful for everything you experienced, enjoyed and learned together;
to look at what it is, that you appreciate and love in each other;
and maybe to send out what it is you wish for in the future.
Of course, we gladly take time for special rituals (other than the exchange of rings for example). If you want, you can also say a few words yourself. (so-called marriage vows).
You can also leave all the talking to me and just give each the the “yes”, “I do” or “Ναί” – just as you want it.

Fee for conceptual development, planning & supervision starting from 2.000 Euro
plus travel costs (0,50 Euro per driven kilometer from Chersonissos, Heraklion + possible overnight stays)
How we can come together
Before we start planning, we should get to know each other! It’s important, that I know what you like and do not like and if the chemistry is right between us.
During the first conversation (via telephone, video-call or in person), we get into your ideas and get a concept on how your special day should be. After that, you will get your individual offer. Based on that, you decide, in what framework you want us to start planning.
For the introductory talk, conceptionalisation and cost estimate I charge a fee of 186 Euro which can be taken into account with the other planning costs.
