Dear, beautiful, lovely Lila and Wanda, hi and kali mera!

We are sitting in our hotel on Corfu, it’s a bit rainy outside but we are so happy! And now we clearly understand that the wedding ceremony we had a few days before was the most beautiful and fairy moment of our lives! Really, it was like in a fairy tale, that day will always stay in our memories, because it was the day and the wedding both of us were dreaming about.

Thanks to your care, your attentiveness, your joy, your wise advises, your bravery (we know why J) we had a fantastic wedding ceremony. Our friends said that the ceremony was worth coming from Moscow (2500 km) and they liked it very much, even though they all travel much and they all have seen much. And, of course, our moms and babushka were also so happy and asked us to thank you for such a beautiful wedding, for such precious moments that you have given to them and to their children.

The service you provide to your clients and your job really make people happy. Thank you again! Thank you many-many times!

With many thanks and countless kisses,

Igor and Marina

P.S. Evharisto poli!

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

Hi Lila

We just wanted to let you know that we have now got a baby daughter who was born October last year. She is now 16 weeks old and is keeping us very busy and entertained.

Choosing her name was very easy. She is called Lila!!!

We really liked your name and as you organised a fantastic wedding for us (2 June 2002) we always agreed that if we had a girl that is what she would be called. I have attached some photos for you of her in her christening gown.

We are going to risk going on holiday with her this year in September when she will be nearly 1 years old. We have booked our flights to Athens and are hoping to catch a ferry over to Santorini so hopefully you can meet her. She is looking forward to meeting you!

Hope you are keeping well

Lots of love Wasan and Asa
