Shianne and Daniel

Trapezaki Beach & Lorraine's Magic Hill Restaurant, Lourdas

May 2016

Our first wedding of 2016 was like a fairytale ...  a small, intimate wedding party with ALL of the extras to make this a wedding day to remember.

Shianne & Daniel started their wedding planning just 5 months before their chosen wedding date.  They met just 4 months before that and got engaged in Disneyland Paris on New Years Eve..... A true whirlwind engagement, but this super cute couple knew instantly that they were meant to be together.



They had never been to Kefalonia before ... In fact, Shianne had never been anywhere in Greece, but she knew she wanted the wedding to take place somewhere special, as well as accessible for her guests who were flying from Canada and the UK, and when she read the reviews for MGW, was instantly attracted to the idea of coming to Kefalonia.... "it looked like another planet... stunning".

And so, 5 months later, their dream became a reality with a beautiful ceremony on the deserted Trapezaki beach, and an amazing dinner at Lorraine's Magic Hill Restaurant, overlooking Lourdas Beach.



For our part, we laid on all the best suppliers on the island to ensure that Shianne & Daniel walked away with only positive memories of their beautiful wedding in Kefalonia.

A VIP minibus transfer for the guests, to travel in style from their hotels to the ceremony and reception venues.

Adrian Wood was their photographer ... and amazed Shianne with his fabulous photos..... a PERFECT example of why couples should opt for the full-day photo session....with some portrait photos in a private location, away from the wedding party, where they can relax and enjoy the experience.

Bosonis Art & Flower designed their beautiful flower arrangements in exactly the style and tones that Shianne requested.  Light blue, silver and white was the colour scheme of the day, and the theme was carried right through from the flowers, bridesmaid and flower girl dresses, buttonholes, table centrepieces, bridal arch, candles and cake !!

DJ Thomas entertained the guests all through the evening with his unique style and sense of humour.

A duo of local greek dancers got everyone up on the dance floor learning some greek dance steps... always a great laugh!!

A fireworks display lit up the Lourdas skyline, which was very sentimental to Shianne because when Daniel proposed in Paris, there was also a fireworks display.

Lorraine's Magic Hill restaurant on Lourdas beach laid on a super feast for everyone to enjoy .. as well as champagne and canapes and even some greek dancing by the staff !!

After dinner, Shianne left everyone speechless with her amazing voice by singing a popular Whitney Houston song ... Shianne is a very talented singer whom we hope will follow her dreams....

And last but not least, Kappatos Cakes provided a delicious wedding cake and cupcakes, vanilla flavoured covered in white chocolate.


So, all in all, a VERY entertaining evening was had by all .. with plenty of laughter, singing, dancing and heartfelt speeches.

And now, Shianne & Daniel move on with the next phase of their life... welcoming little Max into the world :)

"My Greek Wedding planned my absolute dream wedding. Planning your nuptials in a different country is very scary, however we were put at ease and nothing was too much trouble. From the Skype calls, hundreds of emails, attachments, photos, questions, suggestions etc My Greek Wedding went above and beyond to make sure all my needs and wants for our special day was met.
Teresa arranged an amazing photoshoot, a boat trip, she made sure there was a full length mirror in my hotel (I was pregnant and self conscious), helped with all our tourist inquiries and even met us at the airport.
I wish I was able to get married over and over again just to experience all the magic again. Fireworks, photos,music, Greek dancers, the views, the incredible food, the amazing kefalonian people.
I could not recommend My Greek Wedding any more!

From Daniel....

"Five stars doesn't do this wedding planner and experience justice. .....I won't lie, as a bloke I was at times a little sceptical about having somebody I had never met, in a different country and on an island I had never been, organise our wedding for us.. Not to mention sending the money before all of this. BUT I had absolutely no reason to worry.. From the second we landed and Teresa met us at Kefalonia airport she put us both at ease instantly with her laid back Irish charm!
When the day came itself we had the weather to contend with but it held off and we had a magnificent ceremony on Trapeziki beach which went perfectly without fault. We then returned to Lorraine's Magic Hill restaurant where it was decorated just as we had imagined and described, the cake was delicious and looked perfect and the food was stunning. As the night unfolded we had Greek dancers, a fantastic DJ and even fireworks during our first dance. The day couldn't have gone better was better than I had ever imagined and our family are still talking about it now!
During our remaining time on the island (11 nights) we saw lots of Teresa and she helped us with tourist information and even printing our boarding passes etc. She is a extremely genuine, hard working and down to earth person who loves what she does. Despite this being her business, it's clear it's a passion first and you get no hint of corners being cut whatsoever.
If you are looking for a destination wedding you really can do no wrong picking 'My Greek Wedding Planners of Kefalonia'. The island itself is like a postcard and the service is second to none. Thank you again Teresa!!! "
