Destination Wedding Planning | Ithaca, Greece
You dream of an intimate wedding, far from home in a place unlike any other – a celebration that’s stylish and elegant with a hint of adventure.
But planning a destination wedding on Ithaca is an intimidating task. Many of the things that make the island so special create challenges you must overcome. From organising transfers by boat to deciphering documents written in Greek, the process requires skills you may not have. If you’re going to achieve the kind of celebration you envisage, you need an expert to guide you. You need someone who knows Ithaca as well as they know weddings.
Combining local knowledge and fluent Greek with outstanding organisational skills and attention to detail, I plan stylish, intimate weddings for couples who want to experience ‘the real Greece’ and celebrate their marriage in a unique location.
Providing bespoke, personal service from the outset, I’m committed to helping you create the wedding you want, the wedding you’ve been dreaming of. At the same time, I believe the whole process should be stress-free, fun and enjoyable, just like any other visit to this beautiful island I call home.

Partial Planning and
If you’re further along on your wedding planning journey or looking for an expert to coordinate the day itself, I can design a bespoke partial package just for you. Assisting as much or as little as you need, I’ll manage tricky logistics, liaise with suppliers and resolve any last-minute issues, leaving you free to relax and enjoy your time on Ithaca.
Elopements and Vow Renewals
With its unique scenery and an abundance of small, intimate venues, Ithaca is an ideal choice for elopements and vow renewals. Even the most non-traditional celebrations require a little planning, especially if you’re organising from afar. Whether you picture yourselves exchanging vows on the beach, amid an ancient olive grove, high on a mountaintop or nestled within a private villa, I can bring your vision to life.
