Member Focus – Kefalonia Weddings

Today we are very pleased to introduce you to one of our Destination Members, Kefalonia Weddings, based on this beautiful Greek island. Over to you Donna….


How did it all start?

My friend wanted to get married on the island. At the time the only choice was through the holiday companies, so I just arranged her reception. However this got me thinking and gradually over the next year and a half – Kefalonia Weddings was born!

 Do you have a favourite venue?

I think my favourite venue is the stone chapel at the Apostolata Hotel in Skala. Not only is it in a gorgeous spot overlooking the sea but the staff and facilities are so good, it makes for a perfect combination.

How would clients describe you?

Most of my testimonials describe me as friendly, helpful and organised, so not a bad combination!

Wedding planner/s you admire?

I must admit being out in Greece I don’t get to mix with many other planners, so I can’t really answer this truthfully.

How do you unwind?

I am also a qualified aerobics teacher, so taking my Pilates and aerobic classes 3 times a week help me unwind and keep fit at the same time.

What themes are you working on for 2013/14?

Beach weddings are very popular again this summer, as are the country, rural feel.

What trends are you seeing?

A lot of rustic/country looks with wild flowers as bridal bouquets and relaxed receptions with big cushions and bunting.

What is your signature dish?

 I don’t think I’ve found it yet!

 Whose celebrity wedding (dead or alive) would you love to design?

I think Elton John would have been a wonderful challenge, as your imagination could just run away and there would be no wedding budget to have to be aware of!

 Is the job as glamorous as you thought?

I don’t think glamorous is the correct word actually. It is exhausting but very rewarding. Every couple is a new episode, to the wonderful book of wedding planning.

What is your vice?

I do enjoy having a glass of champagne with the couple after the ceremony – its the sign of a good job when everyone is smiling, laughing or crying tears of joy.
