Tom and Emily

After dating for 6 years, Tom thought he had chosen the perfect moment and location to propose to Emily....

" We went skiing with some friends and I had it in my head that I would propose at some romantic venue like at the top of a mountain or in a nice restaurant but unfortunately Emily had an accident and fell badly on the slopes which resulted in her being taken to the hospital where we found out that she had torn her cruciate ligament and done damage to her cartilage in her knee which then meant that she was bed/sofa bound for the rest of the holiday (I should probably mention that she had her fall on the second day into a week's long holiday) so in the end after coming home from a morning skiing I decided that there was no better time than that so while Emily was in her pyjamas lying on the sofa with her leg in a full brace I proposed. It took her a few minutes to actually answer but eventually she said YES and made me a very happy man. "



" We had been to Kefalonia once before and it was beautiful, I think we actually have more photos from that holiday than any other we've been on, it was that picturesque. We fell in love with Assos especially, and when we found out about My Greek Wedding Planner through Google we decided that it was exactly what we wanted."

For the next year, Tom and Emily explained to My Greek Wedding Planners exactly how they pictured their dream wedding in Kefalonia, from the romantic, intimate ceremony at the beautiful chapel in Assos, to the delicious meal at one of their favourite tavernas in Fiscardo, as well as flowers, music and wedding vows.  It all came together seamlessly, and everything was going according to plan right up until the last minute !! Again, disaster struck for Tom and Emily !!  A fire in the Fiscardo area cut off ALL electricity to the entire area for the whole afternoon.  But despite all of that, Emily and all of her wedding party showed up the wedding ceremony right on time and dressed to the nines .. hair and makeup perfect too ... and with a smile that never left her face for the rest of the day :)





A mandolin and guitar player kept the mood very authentic, and two photographers made sure they got every angle of this memorable day.

After a quick stop in Assos village for a 'refreshment', the whole wedding group got on their private minibus and headed off to Fiscardo, to the famous Tassia's taverna, right on the waterfront, for a delicious, traditional greek meal.  Cocktails awaited them on arrival, and Tom and Emily were absolutely thrilled with the food and attention they received at this wonderful restaurant.



Some photos by the harbour and along the side-streets for a half hour, and then the newlyweds were MORE than ready to celebrate.



What did Emily have to say about it all??

" What an amazing week and wedding we had and all our friends and family are still talking about the amazing memories which will be with us forever.... I had no nerves or tears and I can only put this down to feeling so relaxed and content. Tom and I had the best day of our lives and we just wanted to share this with you and anyone who reads this. We would recommend My Greek Wedding Planners to anyone who is planning to be married in Kefalonia. "
