About Us

What we can create for you

Style, vision, distinction and passion; together we will create the once-in-a-lifetime event you have dreamt of. My services include destination wedding planning & event design principally in Lefkas (Lefkada) and Meganisi but also in the areas of Paleros, Parga and Syvota, Greece.

I am delighted to say that in 2016 Lefkas Weddings celebrated five years of wedding planning for couples from all over Europe, USA and Australia. I wish all my couples happiness for their futures together with a sincere thank you for allowing me the opportunity to help create their wedding memories. Some of my clients have been back to Lefkada since their marriages and it is lovely to see them again (and their new family additions!).

Whether you are considering a civil ceremony, religious blessing, an Orthodox wedding or a commitment ceremony then each of the locations has something to offer you. You could choose cosmopolitan Lefkada with stunning beaches, endless olive groves, chic restaurants and chilled beach tavernas or perhaps the Ionian’s hidden gem; tiny Meganisi with its traditional stone villages and authentic charm is for you. On the mainland let Parga, the jewel of the Epirus coast, with its Venetian castle and harbour of colourful town houses or Syvota and its island archipelago and luxury villas both catch your imagination. If off the beaten track is your style why not consider the picturesque windmill on little Kalamos or Ithaka island, of Homer’s Odyssey, a beautiful place to relax and unwind and escape it all.

I have established relationships with a host of talented, local and national vendors presenting limitless possibilities.  More than a wedding planner, Lefkas Weddings is your guide during your journey to ‘I Do’ in the Greek Islands.  I’ll suggest ideas, help you navigate decisions, keep an eye on the budget, provide detailed time lines, offer a calming presence and flawlessly execute your wedding’s every aspect so you can savour every moment.

In our experienced hands, you can focus on the moment, while we focus on making the moment flawless. Please look through the wedding stories on the gallery and contact me to discuss how we can start your wedding story.

How it all began…

I worked in Greece for nine years, first as a manager for a luxury villa company on Lefkas and later as area manager for Kosmar Holidays covering Lefkas, Parga & Sivota. My final year I worked for a Greek travel agency and was involved in organising tours and events.

A good friend of mine, Kostas Kavvadas, has a beautiful restaurant in Geni on the Greek island of Lefkas part of the Ionian Islands. It was opened by his parents in 1992 and later taken over by Kosta who has developed it from humble taverna beginnings into a stylish, modern Greek restaurant with an emphasis on great service.

In 2011 he offered the restaurant to an English couple who lived on the island as their wedding venue. This prompted some friends of theirs to enquire about a wedding for 2012 and he also began to receive some enquiries via Trip Advisor for weddings.

This is when he asked me for some assistance, as he was feeling perplexed amidst queries about bouquets and wedding favours! I jumped at the chance, as I love organising and so the venture in the world of weddings began.

What happened next…

2012 – Lefkas Weddings began with Seaside Restaurant

2014 – Everyone loves Seaside Restaurant and it is number one choice for a romantic wedding celebration! Delighted by the interest in Lefkada as a destination I started to explore other ideas for my clients for the following year, offering  unique possibilities for beach and boat celebrations with Jane & Stelios at M/S Christina and active weddings with Get Active.

2015 – This was an exciting year working with new venues and a romantic wedding on Meganisi island – a place I personally love to visit on a free morning.  We also featured on the official Visit Greece blog with the amazing wedding at Ag Ilias at the very top of the island. The summer finished with a first for Lefkada; a stunning ceremony at Porto Katsiki for Alexia & Tom from Australia!

2016 – This year I took the plunge, quit my UK job and took on wedding planning full time, spending an extended amount of time in Greece instead of travelling back and forth to UK. We successfully hosted an entire ceremony and dinner on the beach in May and created a beautiful woodland ceremony at the old village wells in the mountains. A personal pleasure of the summer was helping friend and colleague, Rebecca from Exclusive Meganisi with her own personal wedding on Meganisi island.

2017 – I can’t wait to find out….
