Wendy and Kodi

A true romantic at heart, native New Zealander Kodi, proposed to Wendy in Times Square, New York, on bended knee, in 2011.  After 5 years as boyfriend and girlfriend, all that was left to do now was to choose the perfect location for their wedding.

So, each sunday afternoon, (with a bottle of wine), they scoured the internet in search of the right place ....

"We have always loved the traditional Greek feel of the islands, beautiful beaches and scenic views. We wanted to get married on the sand by the sea and Kefalonia ticked all the boxes.  We had never been before but when we mentioned to friends our thoughts, the feedback was great from those who had been which made it all the more perfect! "

Despite some early morning clouds, it was a spectacular day on Skala beach for the wedding ceremony.... and when Wendy showed up in her bridal car, Kodi was overcome with emotion .... Wendy's grecian-style Pronovias wedding dress sparkled in the sunshine and her hair and makeup finished off the look to perfection.

Mini-champagnes were the order of the day right there on the beach after the ceremony .... as everyone relaxed and savoured the moment before heading off to the reception.

Some alone time now, and Kodi and Wendy had a short private photo shoot on the beach and in the shade of the beautiful pine trees in Skala.

A short 1/2 hour drive later, and the newlyweds and their guests were at the lovely Andromeda Centre, in Lourdas.  Here, they feasted on traditional and continental foods, made with only the freshest ingredients.

Their photographer was on hand again to get some special moments, like cutting the first slice of cake - cup cakes, actually !!

DJ Thomas rocked the house that night and Kodi's 2 children also did some entertaining of their own !!


"Just have to say a great big massive thank you ... I think I may have mentioned once or twice that we had an AMAZING day and are so appreciative of everything you and Kostas did for us. Everything was just perfect .  A fantastic day/night provided by two fantastic people. xx "




Even Wendy's father was particularly impressed with the whole wedding day ...

"What a fantastic location with blue skies and a lovely blue sea with waves in the back ground. My daughter informs me that My Greek Wedding were superb from booking the wedding almost twelve months in advance to the actual day. Nothing was too much trouble. I can only comment from meeting them in the week of the wedding when they were very friendly and informative. We had to change the wedding location from Lourdas beach to Skala beach due to storm damage, but this was done with the least amount of fuss or bother. They handled everything superbly.
The reception was at the Andromeda Restaurant which is in a fantastic location in Lourdas with stunning views over the bay. It certainly has the "WOW" factor.
The food was excellent (Steak to die for and cooked as requested) and enough starters to feed an army! This was followed by a disco until after midnight. A fantastic night.
Thank you My Greek Wedding for making Wendy & Kodi's day so memorable
