Day in the Life Feature of Margreet Riemeijer, founder and owner
of Gamos Crete, destination wedding!

What is your typical day like?

I start my day at 07.00 and make immediately a coffee.
I wake up our daughters and we start breakfast and watch a little child TV before bringing them to school. I always miss the news…..

When I come back I drink another coffee with my husband before he goes to work. After he’s gone, I open my laptop around 09.00 am and I don’t close until 23.00 in the evening. During the day I have meetings and calls with my subcontractors and other business owners.

I check upcoming projects and spend time making schedules and planning.

What is your typical day about?

How did you get started in the industry?

Living on Crete and organizing so many things working years in the tourism, made me realize I am a very good planner. I wanted to be a part of something special for people from all over the world. And of course my goal was to add something extra to a very special day.

My husband told me to become a wedding planner. What a fantastic idea.

Right after my training as a wedding planner, I contacted the Dutch television to record my own wedding in Crete. Our wedding was broadcast in the program "Foreign Marriage" and has given us a lot of positive feedback from people who have visited us in Crete. After this great experience I continued focusing on organizing the many activities we can offer today.

What inspires you?

My inspiration is the love for Greece and the love for my husband. I fell in love with this country many years ago. I knew from the first moment I came to Greece, I would live here one day, marry a Greek man and have my own business. This all happened.
Crete made me realize what possibilities we have here for foreigners.

Here on Crete the landscape has mountain scenery, lovely beaches, beautiful historic churches and enormous culture.
Marrying on Crete is possible for everybody and I want to be the one who makes that ha

Aside from wedding and event planning, how do you spend your time?

I spend a lot of time with my family. As being Dutch I try with everything that’s in my power to make my children speak good Dutch and English. Especially for later if they want to work International.

I do love to read and try to look ahead and think about how I can improve as a person and on my business level.
