LySandra & Eric Schleicher – Folegandros, Greece

  “In 2005, we spent a month touring the mainland and the Cyclades islands, but of all the indelible memories we came away with, we knew that the isle of Folegandros was the most special.

We’d hiked along the island’s rugged terrain and up a winding path to the highest point – The beautiful Church of Panagia, perched atop a magnificent cliff overlooking the Aegean ocean. In just one day, we’d seen more than enough to lure us back for the most special day of our lives. Gazing down at the Mediterranean waters off 3 sides of the island, we made a promise to each other that we would someday return to be married at that church.

Six years later – and just a month before our wedding day – we were distraught that our dream might be impossible. The economic hardships in Greece made it difficult for us to reliably plan our wedding and we feared we would have to postpone our big day. Then we found Lila with Heliotopos Weddings! We were elated with her amazing professionalism, caring spirit, and unwavering commitment to do anything and everything necessary to make our wedding dream come true! They solved every problem, offered so many beautiful ideas, and worked with us every step of the way!

Heliotopos Weddings delivers a magnificent and authentic Greek experience – from the earliest planning to the moment you say “I Do”. Their staff is a caring family – one they welcome you into with open arms!

Thank you with all of our hearts, Heliotopos Weddings! You made our Greek Wedding dream come true!

With Love and Appreciation,

LySandra and Eric

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!
