Dear Lila and the Heliotopos Staff,

Ron and I have just finished our Mediterranean cruise on Friday and have just arrived back in Toronto yesterday.

Today, we were looking at our lovely wedding pictures and felt nostalgic as we reminisce of our beautiful wedding day in Santorini.Our family truly enjoyed themselves at our wedding and during our tour to Pyrgos Village and Santos Winery.

Our wedding would not have been possible without your professional coordination and attention to details. Thank you for making our special day a very memorable one! Thank you for answering all our questions from our numerous detailed emails the last two months, for being very patient with our special requests and for accommodating our last minute changes!

Our wedding was as perfect as we had envisioned it! If we could do it all over, there would be almost nothing that we would change except for hiring the photographer for the full day, so that he can take pictures of our tour as well. We absolutely love our pictures! We are very happy to see all our special moments captured in beautiful pictures. Please thank the photographer for capturing the style and poses that we requested. We also very much appreciated that all the pictures were finished, placed in an album and delivered with the CD of all our pictures before we headed back on the cruise the same day. Our family looked at the pictures the very same night on the cruise and we were all in mesmerized. My mom showed our album to other travellers on the cruise. You will definitely have more business and referrals from us!

We hope to have our renewal of the vows at Heliotopos Hotel in a few years:)

Your new friends,

Quynh & Ron

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
