James and Donna








Out for a walk with their dog in a local country park, on a chilly christmas morning, James asked Donna to be his wife .... they had been together for 9 years, since university, and decided to plan ahead for the future.

Having searched almost half of Kefalonia for the perfect villa for their wedding reception, they both agreed on Villa Aspro, in Skala.  One year before the wedding, Donna and James came to Kefalonia for the very first time to see first hand their chosen villa, and of course, to meet with Kostas and Teresa of My Greek Wedding Planners.  Naturally, they fell in love with the island so there was no doubt in their minds that they had made the right choice.  Nine months later, there was a 'little' addition to the family, and baby (Hattie) Scala was born !!!

Donna's super bubbly personality shined through the whole wedding planning process and it was obvious that she was very excited about marrying her best friend in one of her favourite (new) places in front of almost 40 friends and family.

Donna and James dreamed of a beach wedding, with a private reception afterwards at their villa.  The wheels were put in motion and everything was planned, organised and ready upon their return to Kefalonia one year later.  A beautiful ceremony area was set up on Skala beach while the private caterers transformed the villa garden into a magnificent dining area for the wedding reception.  On the beach, a mandolin and guitar player accommpanied Donna and her father to the ceremony area - just the beginning of a full day of local entertainment for their guests.

Donna's gorgeous wedding dress was a Dalia by Jenny Packham, and
it glistened magnificently in the warm August sun.

All of the guests assembled at Villa Aspro for a real treat from James and Donna... upon arrival, champagne was served .... then as everyone sat for dinner, a greek band and dancers did the entertaining until DJ Thomas took over and really got the party started.  As a trained dancer, Donna appreciated the importance of good quality entertainment for a special day like this.  Guests dined on everything from Greek Salad, tzatziki and potato salad, to steak, pork, chicken and fresh fish.

Donna's delicious specially designed wedding cake was then served and an open bar kept everyone's glasses full for the evening.
