Nikki & Richard

We originally emailed three wedding planners (including Mythos) and felt that the others didn’t really listen to what we wanted or care that much, one in particular just trying to give us an ‘off the shelf’ package that in no way fitted with what we asked for!Originally we unfortunately decided to book a smaller wedding direct with a hotel and we were badly let down, just 6 months before our wedding!We got back in touch with Carol (on a weekend) and despite Carol going to a lot of effort the year previous and us not booking with her, she emailed us back within the hour to express how sorry she was to hear that we had been let down and that she would be delighted to help us.We only wish we would have stuck with her in the first place and saved ourselves a whole lot of heartache!!Nikki & Richardxxx

 

OUR STORY

We had known each other indirectly for some years before we actually got together. We were friends of friends so to speak. We actually first realised there may be something between us whilst talking over a friend (that was stuck, sat in between us both for over an hour) in our own little world. Sometime after this encounter in the January of 2006, after a couple of late nights in bars in our local town, where we conveniently “bumped” in to each other, we eventually kissed and the rest as they say is history!

 

FALLING IN LOVE WITH

Nikki The bride: Richard is affectionate, caring and protective man. We laugh together so much. We can talk openly about anything and everything! Richard really and truly is my Best friend. We share a love for travelling and lots of other plans and dreams for the future, including our growing family. He makes my heart race (even 10 ½ years later ha ha)!

 

Richard Τhe groom: Nikki is the most caring and unselfish person I know. We share a complete love of new experiences be it new foods or travelling to new places. We are a team and have clicked since day 1, wanting to make the other person happy. Nikki makes me laugh sometimes for the reasons that only we know

She’s the only person I know who has worse time keeping than me 

 

 

THE ISLAND

We wanted a destination that was beautiful, with great weather and not commercialised! Kefalonia, finally is what we wanted! It is a charming, peaceful & unforgettable island. Pine-covered hills, crystal waters sparkling in the sunshine, pastel-colored buildings festooned with flowers, Kefalonia is an island of outstanding natural beauty



THE WEDDING VENUE

After finally choosing the resort of Skala (originally looked at Fiscardo), Mythos Weddings helped us choose , what turned out to be an amazing venue! They did offer us a number of places and catering options too choose what suited us best.

We specifically chose Old Times restaurant because of the spectacular views, the food reviews and children’s play area was a great bonus.

We would definitely recommend Old Times to other couples.





THE WEDDING DAY

The AMAZING wedding day!!!!! Eventful (lost and found rings lol) Friendship – we had all of our good friends and family there 69 in total. Beautiful location and weather, right on Skala beach in glorious sunshine. Love and happiness felt between us (bride and groom) all the way through to our guests and the people who helped to make our day fulfill all of our dreams!

The most romantic moment of our day was The first dance!

The most funny incident of the day was the lost of our wedding rings! Yes! We had our 2 year old son Finley as our ring bearer. We tied both wedding rings to a ring pillow and as I walked down the isle with my husband to be looking over my head, I got very worried that he was about to run down away down the beach! However as I approached his side and asked what the problem was, he told me that both wedding rings had been lost in the sand! They were found with just minutes to spare, before Len (our celebrant) called for the rings! You could hear all 67 wedding guests, Len, Carol & team let out a sigh of relief!!

We will never forget The Location, The Food, The Boat Trip, The Music, Everybody involved, from the wedding planners to the waiters in the restaurant and the Kefalonian people making the place what it is!





THE PHOTOGRAPHY

Vasilis Loukatos was our photography. The photographers from Vasilis Loukatos studio really did an amazing job, working very hard and on such a hot day (40 degrees)! We felt that they just blended into the background, rather than get in the way of anything. The private photo shoot in the ‘Pines’ area in Skala and the photos on the front of the boat, was one of our most wonderful moments!





OUR WEDDING PLANNERS

Mythos Weddings was the one!

We felt Carol our wedding planner really listened to what we wanted and put a lot of effort into pulling together different options around exactly what we asked for. She never complained when we changed our minds!

We originally emailed three wedding planners (including Mythos) and felt that the others didn’t really listen to what we wanted or care that much, one in particular just trying to give us an ‘off the shelf’ package that in no way fitted with what we asked for!

Originally we unfortunately decided to book a smaller wedding direct with a hotel and we were badly let down, just 6 months before our wedding!

We got back in touch with Carol (on a weekend) and despite Carol going to a lot of effort the year previous and us not booking with her, she emailed us back within the hour to express how sorry she was to hear that we had been let down and that she would be delighted to help us.

We only wish we would have stuck with her in the first place and saved ourselves a whole lot of heartache!!

 

LAST BUT NOT LEAST!

We can’t THANK enough

Carol & Demi (our wedding planners) for all their tremendous hard work in delivering our dream wedding and for making our life’s less stressful!
