Hi there Lila, Katerina, Yiota & Rena,
Well we are back in England but our hearts are still with you in sunny Santorini. We miss you and your kind hospitality so very much and I shed a few tears when we left you all yesterday. Being back in Manchester and waking up without the fantastic view of the Caldera is so sad! We are also missing the fabulous food from the daily buffet – it wasn’t the same this morning without the greek yoghurt and honey followed by some spinach or cheese pie!!!
Anyway we wanted to thank you all so VERY VERY MUCH for making our stay at Heliotopos so fantastic. From the moment we arrived we felt like part of the Heliotopos family and Lila it was so nice to meet you at long last as I know I felt like I knew you so well after our many emails since Oct 2004!! When we saw our room and the view, it took our breath away, you really do have a beautiful hotel in such a stunning location.
Our wedding was perfect from start to finish, you really looked after us both and made us feel so special. I know I am fussy on detail but I was not disappointed in anything. The flowers, the musicians, the ceremony, the decoration in the lava cave, the fireworks, the fabulous food and the wonderful cake that everyone loved so much!! – It was all so perfect. We have so many happy memories that will remain with us forever and we are so very happy that we chose to get married at Heliotopos and in Santorini.
We would also like to thank Yiota for her help and advice and attention to detail with the lava cave. It was so beautiful when we walked in – all lit up – so romantic. Plus Katerina – you are so sweet and helpful – and your favourite colour is TURQUOISE – just like me!! You even wore turquoise when you took us to the Thira to the Town Hall!! Thanks so much for your help!! Then of course Rena – nothing was ever too much trouble and you were always there to help us out and answer our questions. Thanks also to Yiannis and all your other staff who are very lovely people – You are ALL lovely people!!
We can’t wait to come back and see you again – perhaps on our 5th anniversary – who knows, maybe sooner!!
Anyway we will keep in touch with you Lila as we would like to know how everyone is doing and how all the other weddings go!! I LOVE weddings as you know – perhaps I can work for you!!?? That would be perfect as I have always wanted to be a wedding planner – it’s my dream job!!
Oh well, I guess I better go now. Back to work tomorrow and normal life!! You all take care and keep in touch. We’re missing you already and it’s only been a day.
All our love and hugs
