Rachel & Dave, St Paul's bay wedding in Lindos (Rhodes) Greece followed by beachfront taverna reception, October 2010

We had a fantastic time! Couldn't have wished for a better day! Cathy, our wedding co-ordinator was great also. We were so pleased when we saw the band arrive at our reception as we had seen them the previous Friday and loved them! It was the best day of our lives which we wish could last forever. Everybody said it was the best wedding they had been to. I agree! So romantic, so well planned, and so much fun!!

Lucie & Marek, Mykonos beach ceremony and reception, September 2010

Having a wedding on an island is the best way, you are not stressedatall, you have a nice tan and gorgeous pictures! I definitely recommend it! I chose Mykonos as I like Greece and Greek food and I wanted a small island with not too many tourists. Ionian Weddings had the best website and the communication was very good with them, everything went very well and the ceremony was beautiful, thank you!

Leonie & Ollie, Santorini hotel wedding & reception, September 2010

We were very pleased with the ease of booking through Ionian Weddings. Especially for people like me who are busy / unorganised and don't have time to stress about every last detail. Their co-ordinators in Greece were prompt and helpful and overall couldn't do enough to make our day exactly as we wanted it. Thanks to Jane and her team in Greece, we must do it again soon!!!

Kayleigh & Gavin, Kefalonia hotel wedding and reception, September 2010

As a bride, planning your wedding can be a really stressful time. Ionian Weddings organised everything for us, which was great as we have very busy lives and didn't have the time to plan a wedding ourselves. We had the most amazing day and if we could do it again, we would!

Tracy & Neil, Kypseli garden wedding and Alexandra Beach reception Zante, September 2010

Caroline & Adam, Corfu town hall wedding and Sailing club cocktail reception, September 2010

Dear Jane, we returned yesterday from Corfu. We had an amazing wedding, it was truly wonderful. The Greek musicians were fantastic, they really were brilliant. The horse and carriage was a lovely ride and a special touch. We were impressed with the Sailing club, it exceeded our expectations. I have attached some photos so you can see how happy we were on the day. We couldn't have asked for better weather. Thanks again Jane

Nicola & Darren, St Irene wedding Santorini and Perivolos reception, September 2010

Hello Andreas, I hope you are well and may I thank you very much for what was a wonderful wedding and a fantastic experience for both myself and Nicola and for all the guests that attended. Sofia our wedding co-ordinator was very good and helped us in so many ways and took any worry away. The wedding venue was fantastic, the chapel was lovely and the sunset just made it perfect. Our reception was fantastic and a lovely venue, the buffet was probaby the best food we had in the entrie two weeks of our stay. Perepatation of documents by yourselves was very good, you took all the worry away and this was handled very smoothly. I will tag you in the pictures on Facebook, we have some fantastic memories from these photos.

Rachael & Karl, Hersonissos wedding Crete, September 2010

Ionian Weddings provide a good service and Crete was a lovely island. The wedding package was good value for money, the flowers were lovely, the cake was the best chocolate cake I've ever tasted! Hair & make up were stunning, overall a good package! Everyone who attended said it was the best wedding they had ever been to! Many thanks!

Miu & Garrick, St Irene wedding Santorini, September 2010

Hi Andreas, finally we finished our wedding trip and now we're back in Hong Kong. We'd like to say a special thanks to you and Sofia for making sure everything was so well planned. With your help our wedding was wonderful and memorable. We enjoyed every moment and are very pleased with the arrangements including the hairdresser and photographer! Once again, thank you!

Kelly & Matthew, Assos chapel wedding & beachfront taverna reception Kefalonia, September 2010

Hi Jane, just a quick note to say a big thank you, we're back from Kefalonia now and the wedding was absolutely fantastic. Angela, our wedding co-ordinator was a big help and we're very pleased with the photos. Thank you for everything! Mr & Mrs James x

Anna & Matt, Private beach bar wedding & BBQ reception Santorini, September 2010

Hi Jane, first of all I have to say thank you for guiding us so well - the wedding was amazing, complete sensory overload. A perfect setting, wonderful sunset, a warm breeze and really meaningful vows. Your local wedding co-ordinators made everything run smoothly - please do thank them. We have some amazing photos. Thanks again for all that you did.

Claire & Jamie, Kefalonia chapel wedding and hotel reception, September 2010

If you want an open air wedding in an amazing setting with views over the ocean then we suggest you speak to Ionian Weddings. We researched other wedding planners and none could provide the intimate wedding in a stunning location that we dreamed of. It really helps that they speak Greek! Our flowers, cake, photographer, wedding car and wedding meal were all arranged by Ionian Weddings and everything was perfect. All our guests said it was a beautiful day and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We would definitely recommend Ionian Weddings to those who dream of the perfect wedding day. The service you provide is second to none.

Kerrie & Martin, St Stefanos Island wedding Kos and beachfront taverna reception, September 2010

The overall service we received from Ionian Weddings and their wedding co-ordinators in Kos was outstanding. Both the day and evening of our wedding was more than we could have ever hoped for or dreamed of, we can only say a huge heartfelt thanks. It will be a day that neither we nor our guests will ever forget.

Naomi & Chris, St Irene chapel wedding and Perivolos reception, September 2010

We had the most amazing wedding in Santorini and couldn't have asked for better wedding planners! Ionian Weddings were at hand every stage of the way to answer my questions and concerns about getting married abroad, and we definitely recommend their paperwork service, I'm so glad we left that side of things to them! Also our wedding co-ordinator in Santorini was just as fantastic as the rest of the staff we have dealt with, it was so reassuring having someone there to show us around and be on hand on the wedding day!

Sandra & Brian, parents of Suzanne, who attended her wedding in Zante

Hello Andreas, we have recently returned from Zakynthos where we attended our daughter Suzanne's wedding to Russell on 6th September. 36 guests thoroughly enjoyed what many of them (including my wife and I) said was the best wedding they had been to. Obviously the location and weather had a great deal to do with making this a special day for Suzanne and Russell but we must say the organisation of Ionian Weddings was excellent which made the occasion go smoothly. We'd be grateful if you could also pass on our sincere thanks to your team in Zante: Heather, Michele and Lucas for carrying out their duties with such professionalism and sense of enjoyment which enabled everyone to enjoy the day. Our thanks to one and all, Brian & Sandra

Suzanne & Russell, Agios Sostis Island wedding Zante, September 2010

Ionian Weddings are just brilliant! They have amazing packages on offer which you can pick and choose from to make your own and they will always help you with any queries you may have. We were extremely impressed with how professionally they work, and as you see the photos on their website and read up on the information, that is how they are and we had the most beautiful, perfect day. It was our dream wedding that came true and we couldn't have done it without the help from the Ionian Weddings team!

Laura & Ben, Chapel wedding and beachfront taverna reception in Crete, September 2010

Laura & I decided on Crete as we met there whilst working and living on the island. We spoke to several travel companies and wedding planners but none was able to accommodate our wedding plans, that was until we found Ionian Weddings. After the very first email response from them we knew we were in good hands. From that point onwards they were nothing but fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble and every question we asked they answered promptly. I cannot express how thankful we are to Jane and her team for making our day such a special one. The support in the UK was second to none and on arrival we had a professional and capable local wedding planner who helped us with all our queries on the island, ensuring everything went to pan. If you want to get married on a Greek island make sure you use Ionian Weddings as you will not be disappointed. Thank you for making our wedding so special and unique.

Alison & Mark, Hotel wedding and Reception in Crete, September 2010

The service from Ionian Weddings was outstanding, both in the UK and Crete. Our wedding planner in Crete was above and beyond perfect, he made every second on the day magical. With nerves hitting on arrival in Crete, he made us relax and was so reassuring. The team in the UK made us confident that everything would be dealt with professionally and with us being very demanding, they met every request and answered every concern. Ionian Weddings will be recommended to everyone we know, their service was without doubt OUTSTANDING!! We ask that you don't change a thing, you are perfect! I can't express how much I want to thank you, Mark and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Sarah & Thomas, Kefalonia beach wedding, September 2010

Hi Andreas, we'd just like to say a huge thank you for everything that you and the Ionian Weddings team did to make our ceremony in Kefalonia so very, very special. Kefalonia was fantastic and our ceremony was amazing. Our driver was lovely, the readings and the vows made us cry, the photographer was very enthusiastic and VERY quick in getting our album to us, the flowers were gorgeous, the cake was divine and we couldn't have done any of it without Angela. She was an absolute star, and put us at ease as soon as we met her. She was also very goodatanswering all our silly questions! So thank you, for making our ceremony so perfect, for listening to all of our alterations and dealing with them so smoothly, for providing a tailormade package that did exactly what we wanted and for helping us start our married life in the most wonderful way possible.

Sarah & Thomas also sent in the following testimonial:

Ionian Weddings arranged our ceremony in Kefalonia. Originally starting as a wedding on the beach with 30 guests, we changed our minds over and over again until we finally decided on a blessing on the beach for just the 2 of us. Ionian Weddings were fantastic: even up to a month before the day they were still happily listening to our ideas and changing the package for us. In Kefalonia our wedding co-ordinator, Angela, was friendly, efficient and practical. She had advice and ideas and even turned up for the ceremony to be our translator. And the ceremony was perfect: the car was gleaming, the flowers were the right colour and the cake was gorgeous. The ceremony had lots of lovely Greek traditions in it that we weren't expecting that made the day even more special. And to top it all our wedding co-ordinator arranged for us to have the album of pictures in our hands within 48 hours. Now that's good service!

Lucy & John, St Paul's Bay wedding in Lindos, Rhodes, September 2010

When we decided to marry abroad we firstly looked at booking through a travel agent. Big mistake! They didn't have a clue about weddings. Tour operators specialise in holidays and I can definitely say that Ionian Weddings specialise in weddings. Everything was so easy from start to finish. We found out within 24 hours that we could marry at St Paul's Bay chapel in Lindos. There were very few slots still available but Andreas managed to secure one very quickly. It would have taken the tour operator 6 weeks to do this! All the paperwork and documents we needed were dealt with by Ionian Weddings. We sent them to Andreas who got them ready and sent off to Rhodes. We met Cathy our wedding co-ordinator in Rhodes the day after arriving. She went through final details with us about flowers cake, the ceremony. And she even arranged transport for all our guests. The wedding day was amazing! The location was beautiful and everything ran perfectly. Thank you!!

Katherine & Grant, St Irene Chapel and Perivolos Wedding, Santorini, September 2010

Our wedding was everything that we could have hoped for. Jane and Andreas were fantastic at arranging everything for us. Our wedding planner, Sofia, in Santorini was amazing at reassuring us and helping us make decisions and we couldn't of asked for a better service from Nikos at our reception. The Island itself is breath taking and a fantastic place to visit and explore.

Lisa & Glenn, Santo Winery followed by a beachfront taverna reception, Santorini, September 2010

When we first decided to get married abroad, we didn't know where to start! So discovering Ionian Weddings was a blessing. We met Jane and Andreas at the Wedding Show - they were so lovely, really friendly and informative - and we knew we could work with them to plan out dream wedding. We were not disappointed. Jane was brilliant from start to finish. We had previously been to Santorini and loved it so we opted to get married in front of our 24 guests in Santo Winery. This was followed by sunset drinks, and then dinner at the restaurant in Kamari. Sophia, our wedding coordinator was excellent. The venue was absolutely stunning with amazing views. And the food and service at the restaurant was fantastic! Jane was helpful and very patient while we took our time in deciding what we wanted! The day went perfectly and there is nothing we would change. Thank you so much! If you want to get married in Greece - look no further!

Claudia & Sascha, St Stefanos Island Kos wedding, August 2010

Thank you! Our wedding was simply fantastic! We will recommend your company with pleasure. It was very hard to return to Switzerland and really hope to return next year.

Nicola & Paul, Kefalonia village wedding & reception, August 2010

Nicola and I had a lovely day. The location was beautiful and the whole experience was relaxed and convivial. Our wedding co-ordinators, Andreas and Angela were super efficient. The town mayor was very friendly and we were left with fond memories of an emotional day and a simple, uncomplicated experience.

Louise & Andrew, St Pauls chapel wedding and Lindos beachfront reception, August 2010

Overall we thought the service from Ionian Weddings was fantastic. Thank you very much for all your effort in making our day so special. Our wedding co-ordinator was brilliant, Lindos is a beautiful town and St Paul's is a wonderful setting, we definitely recommend it! We'd also highly recommend the Greek dancers you organised, they were fantastic and got everyone involved!

Helen & Jonathan, Santorini wedding & reception, August 2010

Hi Andreas, we would like to say how well the wedding went and how much everyone loved Santorini. It is a beautiful island and we are sure we will return at some point. Sofia our wedding co-ordinator looked after us really well and soon made us feel at ease. The ceremony went really well and had fantastic views, the flowers were exactly what we wanted, the cake was really tasty and the hair & make up were perfect. Thank you!

Ian & Elena, Trapezaki chapel wedding Kefalonia, August 2010

Really excellent personal service and assistance that proved very effective at arranging a fantastic wedding day in a perfect location at very short notice. Many thanks to Andreas (UK) and Angela & Andreas (Kefalonia)! To cap it all we were lucky enough to be married on St Gerasimus Day (August 16th)!

Kerin & Ty, St Irene chapel wedding and Fira reception Santorini, August 2010

Hi Jane, just back this week, we had the most wonderful time. Everything went smoothly and it was so easy. You hear so often about all the dramas surrounding weddings but we had nothing but good things happen for us. We enjoyed every moment of it and so did our guests. We have nothing but praise for you and your team: Sofia was very professional and friendly, Kostas was excellent and the photos are lovely too! The food was lovely and we hired the room behind the terrace for cake cutting and dancing which was worth the extra. Thanks again Jane to you and your team for all your efforts.

Kerin also sent us the following testimonial:

Ionian Weddings made the planning and organisation of our Santorini wedding so easy and stress free. We live in Australia and so we wouldn't have been able to do this on our own, I found Jane to be extremely helpful and patient when answering all my emails. It can be difficult planning a wedding but to do it long distance is even more daunting. When we arrived in Fira we were met by Ionian Weddings' co-ordinator, Sofia who helped us to complete the final touches and set everything up on the day. Overall it was the most amazing experience, we had the best day with no stress at all. We both thoroughly enjoyed every minute and have great memories of the day. Our guests even commented on how well everything went. I would highly recommend the team at Ionian Weddings for any bride planning a Greek island wedding.

Fay & Graham, Kefalonia chapel wedding and villa reception, August 2010

Ionian Weddings have clearly been around for a long time and married a lot of people although they don't brag about it on their website! We are happy to recommend Ionian Weddings to others thinking of getting married on the island. We must mention our wedding co-ordinator Angela who has fab and couldn't have been more helpful, her manner was calm and pleasant and this was exactly what we needed before the big day.

Alison & Paul, hotel wedding in Kefalonia, August 2010

Our wedding on Kefalonia was better than we could have hoped for. We had a fantastic day with lots of sunshine and laughs. Angela was brilliant on the day and during the week running up to the wedding. Nothing was too much trouble. We enjoyed the time so much that we are already discussing when to renew our vows so we can do it all again!! Big thank you to all the Ionian Weddings team, to Andreas for putting up with my constant emails and for relieving the stress of the paperwork!! I would definitely recommend using Ionian Weddings to anyone.

Kelli & Steven, Kallithea wedding & Old Town taverna reception, Rhodes, August 2010

A HUGE thank you to all of the wonderful staff at Ionian Weddings, especially Jane based in this country and Cathy and Lyn in Rhodes. We were married on 6th August in Kallithea Spa and it was perfect. we could not recommend Ionian Weddings highly enough. Many thanks once again. Kelli and Steven Byrne x

Hannah & Alexander, Corfu wedding, August 2010

Thank you Ionian Weddings, our big day was perfect, all we had to do was turn up as everything had already been taken care of by the wedding co-ordinator! I will definitely recommend anyone planning on getting abroad to contact Ionian Weddings.

Katie & Ross, Wedding at St Irene Chapel Santorini & reception at Perivolos, August 2010

Hi Jane, I would like to say a huge thank you for organising such a fantastic wedding!! Santorini was an amazing island with spectacular views. The service we received was second to none and nothing was too much trouble. A big thank you to Sofia also, she was amazing. Everything at the wedding was as we had planned and all to schedule. St Irene was perfect, the sun was setting beautifully as we said our vows. Our reception venue was also excellent. I would certainly recommend Ionian Weddings to anybody considering a wedding overseas, everything seemed very easy to arrange and all questions we asked were answered, as previously stated, nothing was too much trouble. The photographer and hairdresser / make up artist were excellent and made us feel so special on our wedding day. Once again, a big thank you for making our day as special as it was.

Sam & Jamie, Wedding at St Lazarus Chapel, Rethymnon Crete, August 2010

Our wedding was fantastic and we couldn't have asked for anything better. Thanks for all your help!

Sarah & Peter, Zante wedding, August 2010

We had a truly fantastic day. Jane, and also the team in Zante, made everything so easy and stress free for us. Everything was just as we imagined and more. The location was perfect and absolutely beautiful. We had a lovely wedding, with everything just as we had organised and planned. Jane was an absolute gem and answered my many emails very rapidly and put my mind at ease. A huge thank you to Jane and the team in Zante for making our wedding such a perfect day. Sarah & Peter xx

Anneka & James, Myrtos beach wedding & Assos taverna reception, August 2010

Wow! I have not stopped looking at the photos in a desperate bid to relive the experience - the photographs are so beautiful and the photographer caught the moment perfectly. We were looked after so well by the wedding co-ordinators in Kefalonia - both Andreas & Angela were only too happy to make sure our wedding was perfect. The beach was stunning at Myrtos and was set up exactly how I had dreamed of. The reception venue was also perfect. My sister in law said it was the best fish she had ever tasted! Fiskardo was beautiful and the perfect place to stay - the local people in tavernas and shops regularly gave us wedding advice and small gifts during our stay. I would recommend Ionian Weddings to anyone who is thinking of a wedding abroad and I must say that Kefalonia is the most beautiful island tht I have visited in the Ionian. Thanks so much to Andreas in London, we will never forget this amazing day and honeymoon we had. Wish we could do it all over again, the time flew by too quickly. Love James and Anneka x

Rebecca & Luke, St Stefanos Island wedding & taverna reception Kos, August 2010

Our wedding was everything and more special than we ever imagined and this was all thanks to Ionian Weddings. Andreas was so helpful and made sure we had everything we wanted, thank you so much for this. The added little extras such as the Greek dancing for the reception and fireworks were fab, especially the bouzouki serenade for the island was amazing by the way, and so very Greek which is what we wanted. We were over the moon with the flower arrangements, they were absolutely stunning and the flower arch was just perfect. The photographer was brilliant and the photos are beautiful. Nikos and Linda were really good and took away the wedding stress which was great as we were able to enjoy our holiday as well as our wedding day, thank you for this guys. Our whole experience of Ionian Weddings has been an excellent one and I would definitely recommend them to anyone, they are professional and have a lot of knowledge and experience with weddings in Greece. Thank you!

Elaine & Glenn, Assos chapel wedding and taverna reception in Kefalonia, August 2010

My partner and I have been together for 17 years and finally decided to tie the knot. We had previously been to Greece and liked the idea of getting married there. We knew we wanted to go to Kefalonia as we'd been on day trip here and it looked like a beautiful island. We found Ionian Weddings and immediately liked the look of the website and read the testimonials from other couples. We opted for an August wedding in Assos, which we had only seen via the website. We were not disappointed, the pictures of this tiny village do not do it justice, we chose a chapel wedding as we wanted a very intimate wedding with only 4 other guests. The venue is so picturesque, serene and romantic and ideal for what we wanted. The taverna meal afterwards was wonderful, with a warm and friendly atmosphere and great food. A big thanks has to go out to Andreas and his wonderful team who made this all possible for us and made it so stress free. And also to Angela our wedding co-ordinator who is an amazing, friendly, warm person and made our day. We can't thank you all enough.

Tanya & Andrew, Amorgos beach wedding, July 2010

Ionian Weddings stood out by far above the other companies we looked at to plan our wedding. The reviews were fantastic, the price was right and service was second to none from start to finish. Despite the wedding being fairly short notice everything came together nicely. Thanks again to Andreas, everyone at Ionian Weddings and in Amorgos. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Anne & Nick, Wedding at St Irene Chapel Santorini, July 2010

Hello Jane, thank you for the welcome home! The wedding was absolutely perfect - truly. Sofia our wedding co-ordinator was even more charming, efficient and helpful than expected and successfully managed all points within the wedding itinerary to make this an unforgettable experience. The two photographers were also a wonderful addition to the event as was our magistrate. The flowers were perfect, the cake was perfect, the location and sunset were perfect - really, it all could not have been better. The photographers were able to process the many pictures that were taken overnight - this for a complete wedding album is unprecedented in my experience. Many kudos to your team Jane!

Jennifer & Mike, Bourtzi wedding Skiathos July 2010

Hi Jane, thanks for everything, we had such an amazing wedding. After the ceremony we spent some time with the photographer, who was very, very professional, then we took our guests on a surprise boat trip around the island. It was such an amazing trip to the sounds of soft Greek music and of course....the Mamma Mia soundtrack! A special thanks to you Jane for all your help and guidance throughout the past year, love Jen xx

Charlotte & Ashley, Wedding at St Irene Chapel & Perivolos beachfront reception Santorini July 2010

Our wedding in Santorini was fantastic, we couldn't have wanted for a better location or a more perfect day. Everything was organised for us down to the last detail and turned out better than I could have imagined. We had so many compliments from our guests who all had a brilliant time. All the locations from the chapel to the reception [Perivolos] were beautiful and the cake , flowers and photos perfect. We would highly recommend Santorini and Ionian Weddings!

Katie & Mike, Wedding on Cameo Island followed by reception at Kypseli beachfront, July 2010

Jane and the team in Zante offered a first class service from day one. Jane was very quick to respond to all my questions and queries and she always put my mind at ease. The service that Jane and the team in Zante provided is the best! My whole day ran like clockwork and everything that I had planned with Jane happened in Zante. Both my venues were breathtaking and all our guests had a great day. Our photographs were amazing, I highly recommend the storybook photos and Ionian Weddings to anyone considering getting married in Greece. Thanks again Jane and Frances for all your help and efforts, Lots of love Katie and Mike xxx

Aine & Robert, Wedding at St Paul's chapel Rhodes, July 2010

We had a fantastic time! Cathy (our wedding co-ordinator) was brilliant and the island was gorgeous. Thanks again Jane, it was perfect!

Natalie & Paul, Wedding at Santo Winery Santorini, July 2010

Our time in Santorini was magical. We have fallen in love with the island and its people, and our friends and family share these sentiments. It would be near-impossible to plan a wedding in Greecee without the help of a company such as Ionian Weddings. Jane is efficient and professional yet warm and caring too.

Vicky & Stuart, Skiathos wedding, July 2010

Ionian Weddings sorted out all our needs. Everything was ordered so we didn't need to worry when we got to Greece. Our wedding co-ordinator was very helpful and accommodated every request we had. I would recommend Ionian Weddings to anyone looking to get married in Greece as they can do everything for you.

Claire & David, Wedding at Bourtzi Skiathos, July 2010

We could not have wished for a better wedding day. We got married at the Bourtzi then had a boat trip in the day with all our guests. Jane has been fantastic from start to finish and the wedding organisers in Skiathos were great too. Skiathos is a beautiful island and I would certainly recommend to get married there and to book with Ionian Weddings as we are so glad we did. Thank you, Claire & David xx

Justine & Jon, Wedding at Nidri Beach, Lefkas, July 2010

After deciding to marry on the beautiful island of Lefkas (at Nidri), our story begins....Initially sceptical and after much deliberation, we decided to go for it and decided on Ionian Weddings, after reading through a number of positive reviews on their website. It was one of the best decisions we have ever made. Through initial contact to our wedding itself, everything fell into place perfectly. Andreas at Ionian Weddings was informative and helpful throughout. Our wedding planner in Nidri and her arrangements were faultless. Also big thanks to our photographer....again faultless. So from "initial scepticism" we ended up at "total satisfaction". The best word to describe the wedding (& all the planning that went with it).....PERFECT!...Jon & Justine

Katy & Ryan, Bourtzi wedding and taverna reception Skiathos, July 2010

Amazing service from Ionian Weddings! Prompt, reliable and effective communications throughout, reassurance whenever necessary, excellent local knowledge and a complete service that caters for as much or as little as you want and need. Above all we really valued their consideration of our own ideas and dreams, a truly individual service. Thank you Ionian Weddings!

Jo & Ricky, Bouka beach wedding & BBQ reception, Zante, July 2010

I would encourage anyone to get married in Greece, such a beautiful and romantic setting. I would also advise them to get in touch with Ionian Weddings who will help and advise them the whole way through. They can be assured that both Ionian Weddings and the wedding co-ordinators in Greece will give them the best day they have ever had. I am sure that all locations available are spectacular though our beach wedding in Tsilivi was everything we could have wished for and more. We would like to thank Andreas and Jane from the bottom of our hearts for our brilliant wedding from which we and our guests will treasure the memories forever. Nothing was too much trouble and all the reassurance was really calming! It was the very best start to married life that we could imagine.

Jo & Neil, Wedding at Santo Winery, Santorini, June 2010

So we're married now and it was absolutely amazing. We loved Santorini and Santo Winery was just perfect for the wedding. Your two wedding co-ordinators over there were really efficient, friendly and helpful. We're heading back to Santorini as soon as we can. Anyway, we just wanted to say a huge thank you for organising everything to make our big day just the way we imagined. Thanks so much!

Alessandra & Antonio, Catholic wedding in Kos followed by blessing at St Stefanos Island, June 2010

Ours was the first Catholic wedding that Ionian Weddings had organised in Kos and even if for them it was the first time, everything went smoothly and we and our guests were impressed with the full support and the professional organisation. Grazie e ci vedimao a Londra!

Ami & Athan, Orthodox wedding in Paros, June 2010

I just wanted to say thank you for everything you guys have done to make our wedding day so perfect! We had the best day possible!! Julie, our wedding co-ordinator, is a miracle worker!! She has just done beyond what I could ever anticipate, and worked wth such dedication. I don't think that we could have had a better selection of anything from a big city...the flowers, cake, transport, food, hair and make up were all perfect. Thank you so much again for all your co-ordination from the UK, I really appreciate your help and the effort you made to make it all perfect. Thank you so much again xx

Lousie & Andrew, Lefkas wedding & reception, June 2010

Without Ionian Weddings our dream wedding would not have happened! As we live in another country on a different time zone, everything was done via email and the fast responses and constant help and advice were invaluable. I did not need to worry about anything, the flowers, hair stylists, cake and decor at the church and reception were better than I could have imagined. Ionian Weddings really do know how to create the perfect Mamma Mia wedding!

Marisa & Chris, Meganissi wedding & reception, June 2010

Hi Andreas, we were delighted with our wedding and the whole holiday. Everyone had a great time and the venue was perfect. The whole process was very simple with minimal fuss and hassle and I would recommend it to anyone. It would certainly have been a lot more stressful having to organise paperwork, photographer, cake, both venues etc ourselves. Many of our friends and family said it was the best holiday and wedding they'd ever been to. Many thanks for a fantastic time.

Nikki & Sean, Zante beach wedding & beach party, June 2010

Our wedding day went like a dream. We couldn't fault a thing. It was an amazing day and celebration of our marriage. The wedding co-ordinator was excellent and made sure everything was in place for the day to run smoothly. The photographer and videographer were also amazing and took hundreds of photos on the day. We would recommend Ionian Weddings to anyone.

Kate & Daniel, Mykonos wedding, June 2010

We wanted a simple wedding but in a special location....somewhere less touristy and still beautiful. Mykonos was a perfect place for us to get married. We'd recommend it highly. Thank you very much to Ionian Weddings who provided us great, efficient service. Everything went as planned for our wedding and we really had a wonderful day. And big thanks to Katerina our wedding co-ordinator. We recommend Ionian Weddings highly!

Louise & Ian, Agios Sostis Island wedding, Zante, June 2010

We had an amazing wedding day, the venue exceeded our expectations and it was made hassle free as it was all organised for us, leaving us to have an enjoyable day. We would recommend Ionian Weddings to anyone thinking about getting married abroad, it is the best and most economical way to do it! Thank you for everything you have done for us! It has been lovely.

Melanie & Jon, Wedding at St John Karavados chapel in Kefalonia June 2010

Thank you for helping us to organise the wedding of our dreams in beautiful Kefalonia. It could not have been more perfect and from the offset Ionian Weddings guided us through every step. Every little detail was taken care of, from the paperwork down to the finer details like the floral arrangements and the cake (which was to die for!!). I'm so glad we had the mandolin player who reduced everybody to tears! The chapel you suggested in Karavados was beautiful with the most amazing views over the sea. The photographer captured some wonderful memories in a lovely album and the fact that we got the disk to take home with all the photos was a bonus. We were lucky enough to have 20 of our family & friends there to celebrate with us and all have agreed that it was the most magical, unforgettable day. We will certainly recommend Ionian Weddings to anyone lucky enough to be planning a Greek wedding.

Vicki & Adam, Wedding at St Irene Chapel and Pantheon Reception, Santorini, June 2010

I highly recommend Ionian Weddings to help plan your wedding. It made it so much easier knowing there was someone there to advise and guide us every step of the way. Santorini was a dream island with stunning views and such friendly people. We met with the wedding co-ordinator out there and were taken around to the venues and florists, it was so stress free. It was actually such an enjoyable afternoon! Nothing was too much trouble and we got the chance to add a few little extras. She was also there on the day to ensure everything went swimmingly! It did! We and our guests had such an amazing time, in fact two of them want to move there now! Thank you to Ionian Weddings for making what could be a stressful event , the most relaxing, enjoyable day of our lives!

Jill & Brendon, Wedding at St Georges castle, Kefalonia, June 2010

Thank you to Ionian Weddings and to Angela, our wedding co-ordinator in Kefalonia! We had the most fantastic day - exceeded our expectations! Our wedding location was superb, the views were amazing! Kefalonia is a superb place to get married. The people are so friendly and eager to help and the food is incredible. What more could you ask for? We would recommend Kefalonia and Ionian Weddings to anyone considering marrying in Greece.

Lucy & Robert, Wedding at St George's Chapel, Lindos Greece and beachfront taverna reception June 2010

Dear Jane, we just wanted to thank you for the most amazing wedding ever! We would recommend your services to anyone wishing to get married in Greece - what a stress free way to plan a wedding. Lying on the beach the day before we couldn't believe it was all taken care of and we had nothing to worry about except topping up our tans. Our wedding day was perfect - what a beautiful setting. Walking through the streets of Lindos the locals and tourists alike were congratulating us and we had to stop several times to pose for photos! A small crowed had gathered at St Georges when they realised a wedding was about to take place and the taverna up the street played the wedding march especially for us! The beach taverna was also excellent, the food and service and the decorations. Just perfect - we haven't stopped smiling since. Thank you so much.

Abby & Ian, Wedding at Myrtos beach Kefalonia, June 2010

Our wedding day was truly perfect - the location of the ceremony on Myrtos beach and the reception afterwards with its amazing views was ideal and we could not have asked for anything better. The wedding co-ordinators in Kefalonia went out of their way to make our day the best it could be and everything ran very smoothly. The photographer was brilliant and the food at the reception was amazing. All our guests had a brilliant time. It was my dream wedding come true - thank you Ionian Weddings!

Amy & Dan, Wedding at St Irene Chapel Santorini & reception at Perivolos, June 2010

Ionian Weddings are very helpful and do everything to make the day perfect. The wedding co-ordinators in Santorini are also very helpful and did everything to make it as stress free as possible. The photos, DVD, flowers, hairdresser and make up artist were all better than we could have hoped for. The cake was the best we had ever tasted. Having someone to plan your special day means you can relax more and not have to worry about all the little details as this is the wedding planner's job. Ionian Weddings is a professionally run company and made sure we had everything we wanted.

Tracy & Michael, Wedding at St Stefanos Island, Kos, June 2010

Andreas and Ionian Weddings have done a perfect job! Firstly, offering our dream wedding venue, St Stefanos Island on Kos. Then removing all the stress of organising the wedding, especially the paperwork! Linda and Nikos on Kos were extremely helpful and supportive and the day went totally without a hitch. Sepcial thanks to the photographer who made us relax and enjoy the experience, and took some amazing photographs for us! We would highly recommend Ionian Weddings, we had a fabulous and perfect wedding day which all our guests will always remember.

Gayel & Lovell, Wedding at St Irene chapel Santorini and reception at Perivolos, June 2010

We picked Ionian Weddings because I really liked the website. After speaking with Andreas we felt that this was the right place for us. Andreas was always so helpful and patient with me and always responded to emails and phonecalls promptly. He advised us of different options available and helped with so much inlcuding the paperwork. Nothing felt like it was too much trouble to them. As a first time bride I was unsure of what would happen when we arrived in beautiful Santorini but after meeting with Sofia and being taken to all the different places concerned we felt so much at ease. Santorini is such a beautiful island and that's why we picked it for our wedding. the wedding day arrived and was absolutely amazing. Sofia was on hand to help with anything. Anyone thinking of a wedding abroad can rest assured that if they put their faith in Ionian Weddings they won't be disappointed. Thank you to all of your team, Mr & Mrs Hailwood xxxxx

Julie & Adrian, Wedding at Assos Kefalonia, June 2010

Our wedding in Assos in June 2010 was everything and more than we'd hoped for. The location is amazing, the website does not do it justice! Following our ceremony outside the chapel on the hill with the most outstanding views we strolled back (about 10 mins walk) to a gorgeous taverna. It looked stunning, decorated in white as we had requested, overlooking the sea. The food was fantastic and there was plenty of it. Our guests were amazed at how wonderful it all was. Many are wanting to go back for a holiday and one couple are now planning to get married there too. I cannot stress enough how much we all enjoyed both the holiday in Kefalonia and the wedding day itself. I would do nothing differently. My last mention must go to the DJ who again was friendly, helpful and had every single record that we requested on the night. Book your wedding with Ionian Weddings and enjoy......

Louise & Andrew, Meganissi wedding & Lefkas reception, June 2010

Dear Andreas, just a little note to thank you for making our wedding on Meganissi and reception in Lefkada so very special. It was amazing and beyond our wildest dreams and biggest wishes! We could not have done it without you. I will certainly recommend you to all of our single friends! Thank you so much for making our day and the start to our married life so very special. Lots of love, Louise & Andrew xx

Emma & Ian, Corfu Catholic wedding, June 2010

We challenged Ionian Weddings to create the wedding of our dreams. This included a ceremony in the Catholic church of Corfu and a reception at our favourite place in Paxos. The challenge here is that Corfu and Paxos are 1.5 hours from each other by boat! Ionian Weddings not only rose to the challenge but they also delivered an amazing party atmosphere from start to finish by helping with transport, locations and even musicians! The day was relaxing and totally stress fee, and watching the guests' faces as each element of the day unfolded meant that it was not only the best day of our lives but also many of our guests have told us that it was the best wedding they had been to! We truly believe it was the passion of Jane and Andreas that made the difference and the personal touch in taking time to understand us, our personalities and our dream. It also came in far cheaper than our UK wedding budget with guaranteed sunshine.

Dee & Adam, Wedding at St Irene Chapel Santorini, May 2010

Good afternoon Andreas, we would just like to thank you for all the hard work that you did to ensure that our wedding went as well as it did, we had the most amazing day and it was truly memorable.

Louise & Ian, Lefkas wedding, May 2010

Overall we were very happy with our wedding and I wouldn't change a thing. The weather and location were perfect and the boat made it feel like an adventure. The bouquet and centrepieces were beautiful - far more elegant and of a higher quality than I had anticipated and the champagne on the boat and the decorations were lovely. These final touches really made the difference.

Fiona & Neil, St Irene Chapel wedding & reception in Imerovigli Santorini, May 2010

Hi Andreas, thank you so much for all of your help. We had the most amazing day every and couldn't have done it without you.

Kerry & Colin, Catholic wedding Zante, May 2010

We don't know where to start! When booking our wedding, all we knew was that we wanted to go abroad. From the moment we filled in the Ionian Weddings wedding questionnaire we knew we would have a perfect day, we received so much help and support from Andreas and nothing was too much trouble. We had a Catholic church and beach party wedding and it was everything we had dreamed of - it was my childhood fairytale dream come true. The horse & carriage was amazing, the food was delicious and the wedding co-ordinators and photographer were brilliant - a big thank you to everyone! x

Fiona & Ian, Catholic wedding in Zante with beach party reception, May 2010

Hello Andreas, the wedding was incredible! I cannot quite put into words the feelings that both of us are feeling right now. Everything was amazing and we cannot quite get over the fact that it was all for us. You guys really pulled out all the stops for us and we will be so grateful for the rest of our lives. Here is out testimonial:

We watched the Mamma Mia DVD a lot and decided to cancel our wedding venue in the UK to escape to Greece so that we could experience the wonderful church wedding and beach reception. Finding Ionian Weddings via the internet was the easy part, the hard part for us was trying to narrow down the wide range of options and ideas that Andreas gave us. Ian works away off shore for 6 months of the year and all of our bookings were completed via email. We really should meet you Andreas! The key element in all of our emails was for a fairytale wedding experience including a horse and carriage and I think Ian and I would have been very happy if we got just that....but we didn't! Andreas and the wonderful team in Zakynthos gave us so much more than we could ever have imagined and the hospitality of the Greek people is out of this world.

Imagine being married and upon leaving the Church to be met by young children on a school trip singing to you and rejoicing in your happiness. Imagine a private little cove of a beach with a jetty and the backdrops that you see only in adverts with no one there but yourselves and your guests. Imagine fairly lights that look like fireflies, candles of all different colours, shapes and sizes that mimic a midsummer night's dream. Now try to imagine that all of this was for you. That is the memory that Ian and I will have forever.

All I can say is thank you, thank you, thank you. I think we'll have to come back to you guys to organise the baptism!!

Michelle & James, Wedding at St Irene chapel Santorini, April 2010

Thank you to Jane and her team. They took the headache out of our preparations. Jane could not help us enough with prompt and detailed replies to all my emails. Our wedding exceeded our expectations and we received nothing but outstanding service from Ionian Weddings.... a day we will remember forever!!

Emma & Joe, Wedding on Spinalonga Island Crete, April 2010

Andreas at Ionian Weddings did everything he could to assist us in making our wedding perfect and our on site wedding co-ordinator was absolutely brilliant. We had the most magical and unforgettable day on the beautiful island of Spinalonga.
