Ina Merethe and Christopher from Norway

Dear Lila, Vanda, and all you other wonderful people at Heliotopos.

We are now at home in cold Norway, to sit and think back on our wonderful dream wedding on the beautiful Santorini which was 12/09/12.

It is already almost 6 months ago, but it feels like yesterday. We have been in Crete before, where we got engaged in 2008. And we’ve already had many years together before too. So to do it this particular way, bring all the family down to this great place to celebrate our wedding there, is something we absolute would recommend to everyone.

We came down on Saturday Sept. 8, and the wedding took place on Wednesday. So we had a few days before the wedding to become familiar with these wonderful wedding planners Lila and Vanda. (…) Read more

We were married at Heliotopos 10 years ago and had a unbelievable experience! Lila was wonderful to work with then and we were thrilled that we got to catch up 10 years later. We only had one day on Santorini as a stop on a Windstar cruise and wanted to stop by. We ended up renewing our wedding vows and had another great experience at Heliotopos. No musicians and donkey rides around the caldera this time, but it was like going home. I tell every young couple I meet to consider skipping the stress and escaping to beautiful Santorini and Heliotopos for a wedding they’ll never forget.

“Amazing Experience”

Lila, Vanda, Yiota are amazing. We researched where to have our wedding and the personal service you get from Lila over the internet is by far what sets her above all others in the area. She always responded promptly with questions. It was by far a never forget experience.We ran into some problems with documents and Lila had alternatives solutions that ended up being better than what we had originally planned! She reserved the best Photographer, the best Videographer, and best Hair Stylist (& Make up) I could have asked for. Ms. Helen, you were amazing and thanks for the help with my dress.

The food is amazing (Lila is an amazing cook). The morning breakfast is also amazingly delicious. The ceremony was amazing (both of them). The view is incredible, the staff is so hospitable. We had such an amazing experience. While we ran into some problems as long as you aren’t high strung and amendable to changes (or understand the European way–laid back) you will be fine and Lila and her staff will do everything physically possible to take care of you and your family! Thank you for making the event so relaxing! Everyone had a wonderful time!!!

Dear Lila, Vanda, Despina and all at Heliotopos

We hope you are all well. Nick and I are still trying to get back to normality after such a brilliant wedding and holiday and we wish we were back in Santorini. Nick and I would just like to thank you all for making our wedding day so special.We were so impressed with everything as were our guests.We could not have asked for anything more.

From the first moment we met with Vanda to go through the plans we knew that we had chosen the right company. Vanda went through every single detail to ensure that the wedding was exactly as we wanted. We were so impressed with the practical suggestions that were made and the advice that was given. Everyone at Heliotopos was friendly and helpful.

The view from Heliotopos was spectacular and we will remember it for the rest of our lives as will our family and friends. The flowers were amazing and the service was beautiful. We enjoyed the whole experience so much more than we could have anticipated and we cant stop looking at our photographs.

We would also like to thank you for suggesting that we have our reception at Pygros as it was a brilliant location for a party of our size. The food was absolutely beautiful and the decoration was exactly how we wanted.All of our guests commented on how nice the food was and what a great venue it was. We were also impressed with the fire works and thought the DJ was great. We all enjoyed his choice of music and danced all night.

Overall, the wedding was spectacular and the best day of our lives and this was all thanks to your planning and organisation and we cannot thank you enough for all that you did. We would highly recommend Heliotopos Weddings to anyone who is thinking of getting married in Greece. You really did take the stress out of everything and ensured that we enjoyed every minute of the day.

Thank you so much. We hope to return to Santorini in the future to renew our vows and it would be lovely to see you all again.

Sarah & Greg from UK

Dear Lila and Vanda,

Thank you so much for making our recent wedding so very special. As you could probably tell, Greg and I were overwhelmed to be making our vows in such a beautiful place and were able to really immerse ourselves in eachother and the occasion, thanks to knowing you had taken care, so particularly, all of the details for us.

Everyone has commented on the setting for the wedding and having gone through this amazing experience we would have no hesitation recommending a Heliotopos Wedding to anyone.

Vanda read the vows so well and really put feeling into the words – she made the ceremony very personal for us.

We really appreciated the lovely champagne you gifted to us, the beautiful decoration of the room for our special wedding night and the lovely greek pottery, with 2 birds decoration, which now is displayed in our hall with our family and wedding photos. Also, all your help with arrangements and managing to get me into my dress.

We realised we forgot to return to take the shot of the 4 of us with the wedding certificate but we were very happy to see both of you featuring in the amazing video that Yiannis so kindly and dedicatedly took for us. He did an amazing job….. please do thank him again for us, we will always feel grateful to him for capturing it all for us.

Yiorgos did a fabulous job of the photos so we are thrilled. He really went the extra mile and stayed much longer than anticipated, which was very good of him. I will email him but it will be in English, so if you do see him – please relay in Greek our praise and thanks.

The cake tasted and looked amazing – if you could pass on our thanks to the people involved in making/decorating it. It was perfect – classic and elegant. Same with the flowers, the bouquet was beautiful and just right to match the tone of the day.

Helen did a fantastic job of my hair and makeup – I’ve received a lot of compliments!!

……………………………………………………………………………………………

Thank you again ….. for everything. It felt like you were genuinely excited for the wedding and our marriage and our happiness and that we were the only bride and groom of the year – it felt very personal and organised, without seeming like you were just doing your ‘jobs’. When you see so many marriages at Heliotopos, to retain that sense of special and unique occasion, for the couples, is really something! We could see that you enjoy being part of people’s special moments and we are very glad you were such a big part of ours.

with best wishes,

Mr and Mrs Blais!
