An Agrecofarms wedding is…

An Agrecofarms wedding is a genuine experience for the couple and their guests! This estate is one of the most famous wedding venues in Crete and their philosophy is influenced from original Crete and its traditions. What is included? Natural beauty, traditional architecture, Greek hospitality, Mediterranean cuisine with local products, home-made agriculture and a unique philosophy of ‘‘Less is More’’. In other words, the essence of the Cretan culture.

Between the words I will present to you some photos from a wedding in Agreco!

The chapel in Agreco and the colourful nature

A traditional natural landscape for your wedding in Agrecofarms

Agrecofarms is a well-maintained estate with attention to detail. The visitor enters the space through a large door and experiences the area with all the senses. A corridor leads to a colorful palette of native ornamental plants and aromatic herbs. You can notice some tall old olive trees that have a subtle but at the same time majestic presence. You can touch their rosy trunks that look like the wrinkles of old people and feel that they have been in these grounds for hundreds of years.

Around the main buildings small paths lead to the gardens where local produce is grown. The estate is located on a hill surrounded by vineyards and olive groves. There one can feel free and calm enjoying only the sounds of nature and feeling the summer breeze.

The Architecture

At a central point is an inner courtyard that is as large as needed to accommodate all your loved ones. A defining element is also a tall olive tree in the middle that spreads harmony in the space.

The buildings around the courtyard have been designed in traditional Cretan architecture. In general, the place reminds of a small neighborhood, like a square of a small Cretan village. Stone and Wood are the dominant elements which blend beautifully with the natural environment. In addition, the decoration has many elements of traditional culture.

Multiple spots for the wedding photo-session

The location of the property is such that it offers magical lighting conditions. The charming soft light is important for photography. In addition, the stunning natural surrounding fields are ideal for a portrait session after the wedding ceremony. During the photo-shoot time, it’s nice for the newly-weds to know that their guests can do some interesting things like wine tasting and that they are having a good time.

The Balcony

I want to highlight a point of extraordinary beauty especially at a certain time of day. This is the wonderful “Balcony” with a view to the West over the vineyard fields to the sea! Just at the time of sunset, this balcony shines and offers a sensational experience to those present. The energy of nature at its best!

Wedding Dinner and party time in the inner courtyard

The inner yard is a charming place to enjoy your dinner with your guests. Specifically, dusk is such a magical time when the last blue light of the day blends harmoniously with the beautiful lights of the courtyard. After the dinner, I have experienced many emotional moments listening to the speeches where everyone emphasizes that it is a dream for them to be at such a place. Finally, party time is a perfect opportunity to unwind and relax! I have documented crazy moments of people dancing all kinds of music! From traditional dances such as “Sirtaki” to whatever the couple/guests wish!

The Cretan cuisine

I don’t have enough words to describe how amazing the food is. Firstly, it is home-made and the selection of dishes is inspired from the authentic Cretan cuisine! Their secret lies in the top raw materials and the simplicity of the flavors which that come from the healthy Mediterranean diet of the island’s inhabitants.
