We visited Rhodes a few years ago when our children were very young and fell in love with this beautiful island, in particular Lindos, and the idea of having our wedding there in years to come. Once we started planning our wedding, some 5 years later, we had no hesitation in choosing Happily Ever After as our wedding planners. We had been following their Facebook page for some time along with that of the Matina hotel. We soon had our wedding date arranged for the following August and booked for our family-moon stay at the Matina.
Throughout the months leading up to the wedding, Anthi-Maria was quick to respond to my many emails. She dealt with my queries and requests with kindness, professionalism and patience. No request was too much trouble and I sensed her sharing our excitement for the wedding right from our very first contact. Sending over the paperwork to Rhodes, nearer to the date of the wedding went very smoothly, and I needn't have worried about this aspect at all.
It was lovely to meet Anthi-Maria finally at our in-resort meeting. She had kindly arranged for us to meet at the Melenos Suites where our wedding and reception were taking place, along with Chrysanthi, the wedding coordinator from Melenos. Anthi-Maria and Chrysanthi went over all of the details for the day and we couldn't have been more excited. In fact, after our meeting, Anthi-Maria even took me to a nearby supermarket to kindly help me source some gifts for the table for which I am very grateful!
On the day, Anthi-Maria and her team did an outstanding job of coordinating the wedding party departure from the Matina to Lindos and keeping me calm! Well what can I say about the venue and venue decoration, absolutely stunning! We could never have imagined such a beautiful location for our wedding. Anthi-Maria and her team worked so hard and did an amazing job of decorating the 'secret garden' twice, once for our ceremony and again for our evening reception meal. The transformation of this beautiful location from ceremony to evening reception was breath-taking - every last detail from the chair and table flower arrangements to the twinkling fairy lights above us was perfect! Anthi-Maria and her team stayed with us until our evening entertainment started ensuring that everything ran smoothly. As a surprise for our guests, we had arranged for some Greek dancers. I cannot tell you how much we enjoyed the dancers Kris and Maria - it really made our day even more special and memorable. Anthi-Maria arranged for us to go to the Town Hall a few days later where she helped us to sort all of the legal aspects.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being amazing at what you do and for giving us a simply perfect wedding day filled with many lovely memories.
Karen and Martin
