Like many couples who are now embarking on the journey of planning their wedding, we selected our wedding coordinator from a website.  What stood out about the Heliotopos site were all the pages – over ten years worth – of married couples.  And, when we saw photos showing Spetses, the island where we wanted to be married, we really became excited and contacted the company immediately.

Our relationship with Lila Konstantinidis, our coordinator, was…a match made in heaven! Because we were on the West Coast (US), we could not meet with her beforehand and see venues in person, but Lila bridged this distance for us.  She always responded promptly to our emails, showed endless grace and patience with our questions, provided excellent attention to detail, and kept track of so many moving parts at once.   The vendors she found for us were all exceptionally talented individuals.   Lila’s efforts enabled us to dance all night at our reception, focused on each other and on our guests, secure with the knowledge that all the details were taken care of.  Our wedding (details featured in blogs like “Style Me Pretty” and in the pages of Ta Nea), simply could not have been possible without Lila’s guidance, hard work and confidence.  We recommend Weddings by Heliotopos very highly to any couple marrying in Greece, and are so grateful to Lila for the care she took to ensure our wedding day was truly a magical day.

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!

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”!!
