There is a wide array of wedding receptions depending on the client’s request. Thus, one has the choice of a typical traditional Cretan wedding reception, a wedding reception that includes traditional Cretan cuisine combined with folk music from other regions of Greece, or even sumptuous receptions where traditional Cretan cuisine is served.
Each person interested may express his or her preferences. We will make every endeavor to fulfill each wish and personalize the reception, according to our clients’ requirements.
Many children from Crete have been christened at the church of “Arolithos”, according to the Greek orthodox rituals.
Christenings take place at the yard of the church. Subsequently, a colorful feast takes place to celebrate the integration of the new member in the Greek orthodox community.
