We visited Skopelos in May 2011 and thought that it was a wonderful island and that it would be ideal for our wedding. We met with Daphne that week and she really inspired us to go forward and gave us great confidence in committing.
We told Daphne that we would expect around 70 guests, a large number, which really excited Daphne to explain a basic template for our wedding in June 2012.Over the following weeks and months Daphne kept in touch by email and gradually started to put detail to our plans. Every detail , including boats for the groom and best men – and for the bride, were put in place. The taverna, the food, toasts, the ceremony, the photographer, flowers the additional requests of a DJ and even a Karaoke for an additional party at the Villa, were all sorted for us. The whole process of documentation was explained really well by Daphne, and she advised us throughout the whole procedure.
When we arrived on the island , the week before the wedding, Daphne came to visit with the hairdresser, to run a ‘test’ style for the bride, and to go through the fine detail of our ‘big day’. Daphne gave us great confidence in the plans for the wedding and everything linked to it.
The day itself went like a dream, and Daphne even translated the ceremony into English for all the guests, which was amazing. She stayed throughout the day and the evening to make sure everything was right for us – and wow, was it right – it was spectacular!
We met with Daphne 3 days later at the Town Hall to finalise documentation and then she took us to meet the photographer , who was brilliant, and proudly went through over 500 photographs of our wonderful day, which was given to us on disk. We finished with a coffee and went over our wonderful experience with her and there is no doubt that we have not just had a brilliant wedding, we have made a friend for life, who has given us the most wonderful start to our married life together – we, and all of our 70 guests will never forget our wonderful week on the beautiful island of Skopelos!
I would without doubt recommend Daphne to anyone to arrange their wedding – she is fantastic and has a real passion to get things right for you.
