Simon and Celia



Another very long relationship - 13 years together.... Simon and Celia found love a second time around and chose Kefalonia as the perfect location for a celebration with close family and friends.

Simon proposed to Celia one year before the wedding day, by making a DVD of himself, standing on a clifftop overlooking a local beach... when he turned the camera down onto the beach, he had written in the sand "will you marry me" !!  How romantic is that !!!

Simon was helping Jerry Hollis move his furniture from the UK to Kefalonia and it was then he met Kostas and Teresa and visited Andromeda Centre in Lourdas ... later that year he brought Celia over to meet us and that was when the planning went into first gear.

The ceremony and reception were held on the patio overlooking Lourdas Bay ..... with, of course, the one and only Jerry Hollis for entertainment !! A local dance troupe also put on a display of traditional greek dances.  What also attracted Simon and Celia to Kefalonia was "the stunning scenery, fantastic beaches, fabulous food, non-touristy feel and seemed like the 'real Greece' compared to some other greek islands..."

After a small power-cut on the island in the afternoon, Simon and Celia just let the day take it's course, in the capable hands of My Greek Wedding Planners - everything went off without a hitch, and when asked what their guests had to say about everything....

"our guests told us they had an amazing time in an unbelievable setting, with fantastic food, service and entertainment."

In seems many of them are already planning on coming back to visit again.  For the week of the wedding, all guests stayed at Eleni studios in Lourdas, and enjoyed the freedom of having the entire complex to themselves .... including having a bbq one evening.
