Kjersti and John Andre

Lourdas beach ... August 2015

Kjersti and John-Andre have been friends for many years, but it wasn't until recently that they got even closer and got engaged in March of 2015. It was very casual and super romantic she tells us.... very 'them'... in their livingroom... and John-Andre gave Kjersti a lovely bouquet of pink and white orchids....

Having visited Kefalonia once before for a wedding, they decided this was the perfect location for their dream beach wedding ... they loved the relaxed atmosphere of the island with it's beautiful scenery and great beaches.

They spent some of their honeymoon in Lassi and some in Lourdas at the fabulous new F-Zeen Boutique Hotel, right on Lourdas beach.

Our beauticians, Amanda and Charlotte worked their magic on Kjersti while Adrian Wood got some great shots of the bride getting ready in her penthouse suite.

A mandolin and guitar player serenaded Kjersti to her waiting groom, who in true greek style, presented her with her gorgeous bouquet, which included pink orchids. The ceremony took place at a very quiet, secluded spot on Lourdas beach, with a nice breeze to keep everyone cool.

Dinner afterwards at Denis' Taverna on Trapezaki beach.... the perfect location for a special occasion like this .... with a table for two right next the lapping waves.

All of this was a surprise to their families when they got back to Norway.... a nice surprise we are sure about that  :)

Kjersti's dress was by a Norwegian designer Eva Sandi and with flat heeled sandals, it was the perfect combination for a beach wedding.

"When we started planning it we found My Greek Wedding online and by the look of it this was the wedding planner that could arrange the ceremony that we wanted - for just the two of us. We contacted MGW by e-mail, and Teresa was very helpful with planning everything. She always responded quickly to our e-mails, and answered all of our questions. When we got to Kefalonia and met her in person we really appreciated that she was not the stressful type, just helpful and clearing up the things we were wondering about. She found a beautiful hotel for us to stay at, booked a table at a nicely located restaurant and arranged for a car to take us there. She also put me in contact with Amanda and Charlotte who did my hair and make-up, they were very good at their work, and also cheerful and relaxing to be around when the wedding nerves kicked in. The photographer, Adrian, also made us relax, he gave good instructions, and the pictures we have seen so far looks amazing!
The ceremony was even better than we had imagined, in beautiful surroundings, with the nice musicians playing, and with Grant conducting the ceremony. I must also mention that the florist MGW used made a bouquet that I just loved. We are very happy with our decision to go with MGW for our special day! "
