Donna Palimeri from wedding company Kefalonia Weddings says, “massive savings can be made by having your wedding here rather than in the UK. We have seen a rise in the number of UK couples who decide to marry here, as the average cost of a wedding in the UK tops £20,000. Most couples don't have such a large budget to spend on their special day, but couples choosing to make their vows in one of Greece's most historically beautiful and secluded hideaways ensures that they can have the same level of service, quality and attention to detail, but at a fraction of the price.”
Donna formed Kefalonia Weddings seven years ago and tailor-makes weddings according to her clients' requirements. Less ‘off the shelf’ wedding package, more ‘bespoke creation’. It is this attention to detail that gives couples their ideal day, while maintaining their budget, however tight.
Flowers, for example, can cost only €100, compared to an average of £550 in the UK. Excellent savings are made on photography - €500 instead of £1,500, and how about the ‘all important’ wedding cake, €60 rather than £500 at home. These reduced prices make a £14,600 UK wedding cost only £4,294 (€4,910) in Kefalonia.
The island is often called the jewel of the Ionian Sea, and with its spectacular countryside of mountains, golden beaches and sparkling seas it makes any wedding/honeymoon a magical memory. Steeped in history, the island still holds many of its Greek traditions and remains an unspoilt Mediterranean paradise. No wonder more and more couples are choosing to exchange vows here.
