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

Marina & Igor from Russia

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!

Dear Lila, Yiota and Romilly,

We are back home in New Zealand and finding it hard to settle down to the routine again, after such a wonderful week in Santorini.

We would like to thank you so much for making Bridget and Daniel’s wedding so very special. Your attention to every little detail was superb, which made the day perfect in every way.Your kindness and hospitality made all of the guests not to mention ourselves, feel very special indeed and our memories of our week on your beautiful Santorini, will last a life time. I know Bridget and Daniel were delighted with their wedding day and still re-living every moment.

Thank you also for the photo’s from your wedding files, many of our friends that couldn’t join us, have loved looking at them.

I hope you have a restful winter with time to relax, after such a busy season. We now head into our summer, but most of us, wish we were back on Santorini.

Our Sincere thanks to you all, for what we think was the “Wedding of the Year”!!

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
