Lucie and Gareth

Gareth and Lucie met at work, at a law office they both worked in, and immediately sparks started flying !!  After 2 1/2 years, Gareth asked Lucie to be his wife....

...."it was the most amazing proposal in Iceland on my 32nd birthday. We went for a walk by the Ranga River and it was snowing very heavily and was freezing cold.  Gareth just all of a sudden pulled out a ring and I was so shocked as i wasn't expecting it at all - it was so beautiful...."

......"We had no preconceptions about our wedding, apart from the fact that we wanted to do it on a beach, with the sand between our toes.  After deciding that Greece was where we wanted to do it we hit the Internet and luckily happened upon Kostas and Teresa.

Their friendly and approachable manner made everything much less scary than it could have been, planning a wedding thousands of miles away......"

Gareth, Lucie and most of their guests stayed at the 5* Apostolata Hotel and Spa Resort in Skala.  We transported everyone from there to Andromeda Centre by luxury coach.  With the help of our wonderful florists, we set up a dream wedding ceremony area on Lourdas beach for Gareth and Lucie according to her wishes from her e-mails.....and a drinks table for their guests to cool down as it was quite hot that evening.  Our celebrant conducted their personal ceremony along with a reading from one of their close friends.  A mandolin and guitar player set the mood with beautiful soft greek music in the background, before and after the ceremony.

........"it was our first trip to the island and it was love at first sight.  I had been to a number of Greek islands as a child but Kefalonia was the most beautiful by far.  The landscape is breathtaking, the weather unbeatable, the people are incredibly friendly and the sea unbelievably blue.   We also loved how the atmosphere is so laid back, perfect for families or couples on a romantic holiday.  We were so lucky to have 57 guests at our wedding....the youngest was just 6m old and the eldest was 89 (my grandma on her first ever foreign holiday!)......"

Lucie opted for a very beautiful and unusual bridal bouquet, made from brooches ...... a bit heavy in the suitcase, but definitely worth the trip.

......."Aside from the absolutely beautiful location and the wonderfully decorated beach, the first thing everybody kept commenting on was the food!!!! We opted for a selection of starters, meze-style, followed by a choice of two main courses and a chocolate wedding cake.  Everything was just so fresh, delicious and just kept coming until we couldn't eat any more!  It was a good thing we decided to hire the Greek band and dancers so we could all burn the calories off and everybody had so much fun.  Overall, our guests just loved how relaxed the whole day was, from start to finish .....The highlight of our wedding day??  ....saying "I do" overlooking the azure Ionian sea, in front of all of our loved ones.  It was a moment that we will never, ever forget....that and my grandma dancing to Run DMC!!!..."
