Cora Weddings in Crete - Santorini

I AM BARBARA

Although I am close to 40, my head is still full of dreams and the wedding planning agency Cora is one of them that was turned into reality. I believe that a person who has no dreams is not truly alive, and for that reason, you can say that I live to the full! Some of the dreams were fulfilled, others not, but the biggest one came into my life in the face of my beloved daughter, who I love to the moon and back and to whom I will prove that life is beautiful in many ways, and will show her with an example of Cora Weddings and the magic of love and marriage.

My second dream, like every woman, was finding the true prince. The prince was found and dressed up for our wedding, between Slovakia and Greece. That wedding, my own wedding, was the first time I had an opportunity to organize the celebration of love and I fell in love with this sacred ceremony. Surrounded by outlandish landscapes and customs of island Crete, my dream has become a reality and inspired me to come where I am now, to listen to your desires, your dreams and make them come true.

I AM INSPIRED BY ...

Pomegranate is a symbolic fruit, signifying beauty, love, marriage, fertility, birth, hope, prosperity, eternity. A symbol so important that ancient Greeks would devote to it an entire festival right after the harvest. This three-day feast was to hail Goddess Demeter, mother of Persephone, and every woman that gives birth and supports the household.
The rituals were passed from generation to generation and up until this day in Greece pomegranate is given to the couple at every wedding to bring prosperity and fertility into their marriage.

Greece in general and Crete in particular became my new homeland and my main source of inspiration. The Greek culture, the customs, and their mentality, the beautiful land that surrounds them – all that is pure magic. Crete and Santorini are perfect places not only to fall in love with someone but also make it official and celebrate your wedding.

My personal story of falling in love with a Greek man and moving to this incredible country has motivated me to share this experience with other and organize the most important moments of their lives in this place, so special to me and many others.

It is the eruption of the infamous Kaldera that was the cause of destruction of Minoan civilization, the island of Thera and created a tsunami. But, apart from the great destruction, this eruption gave birth to the incredible island of Santorini, situated on the very volcano Kaldera. Capital city Thira is one of the place you simply must to visit. The city is founded directly on the top of the volcano. To reach the top of the island you have to use telpher or donkey.
