Craig and Kadi

It was love at first sight when Kadi and Craig met when they were just 14 years old !!   But they both took different paths for a while until they officially got together 4 years ago.  Craig, a musician, obviously put his artistic nature to practice when he proposed to Kadi....



"...he proposed to me on Christmas day morning 2011 at my parent's house. All my close family were there and we'd just finished opening our presents. There was just one present left that had ‘fallen behind the sofa', it was all fancily tied up with ribbon and, as I started opening it, lots of heart shaped confetti fell all over me from inside of it revealing an empty ring box inside. At this point Craig was already down on one knee was holding out the ring to me, and my mum and sisters were crying. He made a lovely speech and then asked me to marry him - then out came the fizzy stuff!! "

Then the search began for the perfect wedding destination.  Neither had been to Kefalonia before ......



"We knew we wanted to get married abroad but didn't have a clue where we wanted to go. So, we started the search off by looking on the internet for ideal accommodation for Me, Craig and all our guests to stay in...we were pretty open to where it was that we got married at this point, as long as there was sunshine, a beach for us to get married on and we could make lots of happy memories there, that's all that mattered to us. Then, after only a few hours of searching, we found Villa Brio in Kefalonia. It was then that we realised what a beautiful island it is."

Unfortunately for Kadi and Craig, the weather was quite unsettled for the whole week that they were in Kefalonia, but that certainly did not dampen their spirits.  They were here for a wedding celebration with close family and friends, and vowed to enjoy it as much as possible.... even if that meant swimming in the rain !!

This very handsome couple were so full of energy and enthusiasm it was definitely contagious ... everyone around them showed the same qualities despite the lack of sunshine that week.

So, when the wedding day came around, the Sun Gods stopped the rain and allowed Kadi and Craig to have the beach wedding they had always dreamed of .... A couple of their musician friends played guitar as Kadi made her way to the celebrant's table, where they exchanged their own personally written wedding vows.

This Boho styled bride looked absolutely stunning in her Pronovias wedding dress .. Kadi's look was relaxed and natural, which matched the whole feel of the wedding day, from start to finish.  Her bridesmaids and flower girls also wore white in different styled dresses.

Champagne and canapes on the beach after the ceremony.... and a private photo shoot for the newlyweds .. .and then it was time for food, music and dancing at Old Times Taverna, just feet away from their villa ....

A spontaneous first dance after they arrived, and everyone was ready to enjoy some tasty greek food and experience greek hospitality at it's best at this very popular restaurant.
