Getting Married In Aghios Nikolaos
Posted 23 November 2007 - 04:05 PM
Me and my partner are getting married in July 2008 in an art gallery in Aghios nikolaos, i cannot find a picture of the art gallery anywhere. Im sure it will be lovely if anyone has any pics of it i would be greatfull.
Also our wedding party is around 40 guests and we were thinking of hiring out a Taverna for our reception if you can do this, does anyone have any suggestions on a great restaraunt in either Aghios nikolaos of Elounda.

I live not too far from Ag Nik and will be happy to take some pictures of the art gallery and e-mail them to you. Only one problem, I don't know where the art gallery is! Can you give directions or an address please?
In my opinion, the three best restaurants in Ag Nik, in no particular order, are:
The 9 Muses.
I don't know if they cater for wedding receptions though.

Thank you so much for all your help, I really appreciate it. I contacted the weddings team who were not any help. They couldnt give me a street name as to where the Art gallery is and they said because the season is over there is no one they can get in touch with. You would think they would be in touch with someone all year round for any queries that need answered.
So thanks again to both of you and I will definitely check those restaurants out.

[Latin cynicus, Cynic philosopher, from Greek kunikos, from kuōn, kun-, dog; see kwon- in Indo-European roots.]
Word History: A cynic may be pardoned for thinking that this is a dog's life. The Greek word kunikos, from which cynic comes, was originally an adjective meaning "doglike," from kuōn, "dog." The word was probably applied to the Cynic philosophers because of the nickname kuōn given to Diogenes of Sinope, the prototypical Cynic. He is reported to have been seen barking in public, urinating on the leg of a table, and masturbating on the street. The first use of the word recorded in English, in a work published from 1547 to 1564, is in the plural for members of this philosophical sect. In 1596 we find the first instance of cynic meaning "faultfinder," a sense that was to develop into our modern sense. The meaning "faultfinder" came naturally from the behavior of countless Cynics who in their pursuit of virtue pointed out the flaws in others. Such faultfinding could lead quite naturally to the belief associated with cynics of today that selfishness determines human behavior.
Ironic would probably fit your intentions as well though.
Looks like everything really is Greek in origin.
One of us should probably apologise for hijacking the thread. I'm easily distracted and overly curious sometimes.
Maria, I hope you have a lovely wedding and it is everything you could hope for.

We know this isn't the case. Simply a matter of English being a peculiar language, particularly where punctuation is concerned.
Did you manage to track down the gallery? Sounds like a brilliant place to get married. I know of someone who got married in a museum Will make the wedding photos so much more interesting.

No i still havn't managed to get any pics of the Gallery but im sure it will be lovely.
I have been to Crete but not to Agnik im really looking forward to it.

Now that you understand my humor and after Emma beeing so kind to reveal my inner side I might as well ask you why you choose my nameday saint to get married when you have never been there .
Is there any chance I can temt you to make a change of place?
How about this (my) idyllic place. It's also a saint but than of silence..I know Margaret from the old days (I'm old you know) she is a lovely Francaise, married to Georg Kotzanaki and they have a nice hotel in the river delta overlooking the Messara Kolpa.
It's her job to get people married and as she once told me, they even stayed. Her firm is called Madame Hortense (named after a famous character in a novel called "Alexis Zorbas" written by Nikos Kazantzakis)
Unkown couple, so not me....standing before the hotel pool.
And this is how my place looks like.
Would love to see you change your mind.

I seem to remember a small park on the hillside which would be nice for photos too.
You should pay scant regard to Wim's claims of being connected to any kind of saint.

Such a pitty one can't use more icons in a comment. If not I had answered only using them.

Oh! You changed your avatar. Is that glare aimed at me, Wim?

Thought it was about time to change it. I grew a lot older, lately. No not your fault (don't get vain) but to be honest, I too got bored looking at the same mug every time.
