Alyson and Robert



Having been to Kefalonia just ONCE before, already Rob & Alyson knew this was the place to have their wedding in July 2014 ... and also a great place to invite their closest family members to witness this special occasion.

"After we got engaged on Marloes Beach, Pembrokeshire we just knew we wanted to be married as soon as possible and after a weeks holiday on Kefalonia in September 13 and reading one of your My Greek Wedding pamphlets we thought what an excellent idea and the rest is history.

When we first arrived and stepped off the plane we really did not know what to expect however from our first meeting with you, you made us feel very comfortable and confident the day was going to go well.

However the day itself exceeded all our expectations and was thoroughly enjoyed by all."

The second marriage for both, Rob & Alyson wanted to keep the festivities low-key, and so opted for a private ceremony at their Unique Villa (Stafida) in Old Skala, followed by a delicious meal at Kelari Taverna, just minutes away.

At the ceremony, a mandolin and guitar player serenaded their guests while they waited, and also accommpanied Alyson to the celebrant's table ... These same musicians later set up at the taverna and played beautiful greek music late into the night.

"The musicians were also excellent and if you wanted a recommendation we would say were an essential ingredient to any Greek style wedding."

"The meal afterwards in the Kelari exceeded our expectations. We had eaten there before on several occasions in September and it was the venue rather than the food that sold it to us but on the day the food was amazing, both the starters and main were excellent. The selection of mixed Meze starters just kept on coming, and some guests even forgot there was a main course! At the end of a wonderful meal some of our family were unable to finish their main but the restaurant were happy to put what was left in foil trays for them to enjoy the following day!"


Their chosen wedding cake was a traditional greek walnut cake, decorated with miniature baklava pieces and fresh olive branches.

"All our Family enjoyed the day, for many it was their first visit to kefalonia but all said, without exception, they would return.

My father even said that if he was going to remarry it would be on Kefalonia, albeit it would have to be to the same woman, he has been happily married for over 50 years!


Anything we would change? do differently? maybe I should have practiced a bit of Greek dancing before hand! No seriously although we had an idea how the day would unfold we did not know what to expect but thanks to you, Teresa, the day was everything we wanted and looking back at the photos we would like to do it all again!!"
