From the bride, Antonella:
"But you know, it’s not a special wedding without special people! And I don’t just mean our families and friends. I’m talking about our wedding planner, Maria, who was superlative in arranging everything. I never imagined to find someone so able to understand my needs and to put into practice what I had in my mind.
What else can I say? Florence, the birthplace of Renaissance, this time has been the birthplace of our love and dreams. And if you consider the work of Maria from Greece, the cradle of European civilization… Could it be more perfect?"
Maria is much more than just a wedding planner; she is a creative artist with an impeccable eye for design & style.
We came to Maria just 3 months before our wedding in Santorini, and after just a few short but succinct phone calls to exchange ideas she took the reigns and created a beautiful ceremony that far exceeded our expectations. She made the day so much more special that we ever could have imagined (and all within our budget).
The best part of working with Maria is gaining a new friend for life!
We don’t know how to thank you enough our dear Maria for this wonderful wedding you organized for us, with such professionalism and love!!
We are so lucky to have had you near us! You managed each and every single idea & wish we had not only to execute it perfectly, but to take it one step further. Our wedding décor was amazing!! Much better that we had ever imagined!
You and all the team are wonderful at what you’re doing in a unique way!! You totally made this day stress free (even for me the bride :)) every step of the way.
We are looking forward to seeing you in gorgeous Santorini on our anniversary!!
Our wedding on the 28th June, 2014 at Fanari in Oia, was simply stunning. The day was perfect and everything from the girls Hair, their Makeup, The flowers, the Favours, the Venue, its decor and food to indeed Antonis, The Photographer, Was absolutely perfect. The photos were amazing.
Just to think, that as we sat back in Australia all those months ago thinking of having our special day in Santorini, and upon meeting you through our many Skype conversations, we knew immediately that you were the Wedding Planner for Us. You were beautiful, sweet, extremely enthusiastic, well organized and had an amazing attention to detail, all which we wanted from our Wedding Planner. Tie The Knot, and you in particular Maria, created the most amazing day and made everything we dreamt our Wedding Day to be, come true.
No amount of words could ever express the gratitude, love and emotion we felt that day, but you made it happen, you made everything perfect.
You should be very proud for what you achieve every day of your life. You create the most beautiful memories two people can ever have. Thank you so much. We will never forget you XXX
We are so thankful to Maria for organizing for us the most wonderful wedding ever. We could not have done it so well without her managing everything for us. She always gives us fantastic ideas and excellent advices. Whatever you ask her, she can help you out, information about the island, hotels for the guest, finding the perfect beach for our beach party (Pori beach was perfect), restaurants … She gave us the chance to enjoy every moment of our wedding; we did not have to worry about anything and thank to her we enjoyed every moments of it. She took care of everything with so much kindness, love and professionalism. She made our dream come true; we will always be thankful Maria. PS: I know it’s hard to chose a wedding planner when you are organizing your wedding especially in Santorini they are so many. But guys, Maria is THE best, don’t hesitate anymore

No words can describe how amazing our wedding was and it would have NEVER been possible without Maria. We had been planning it for 2 years and researched endless planners but her promptness, sincere personality and incredible attention to detail made us easily follow her.
From the get go, Maria was with us 100% of the journey. She made us feel like we were the most important couple and keeps focus on what we wanted. There was absolutely no stress on the day of our wedding and it was without a doubt because of the support Maria provided. Everything was beyond our wildest dreams.
If you are looking for the perfect day with someone who will do anything for you; Maria is the person to go to. From beginning to end, she was there.
Maria was my wedding planner for a magical wedding in Santorini in July 2013....But the planning if this wedding began from August 2012 in which every single step of the way i had an amazing guide, planner, assistant, confidant and most importantly a friend! I never thought in the process of planning my wedding (and especially as an event planner myself) i would find such an amazing person that understood me and everything undesired so well! No lt only if she assist with every part and nit picking part of the wedding but also about island information, hotels, and anything we asked for.
And although the wedding is over and a wonderful success, i still have and amazing person that i will continue to stay in touch with for a long time to come for sure.
Maria has been handling all the preparations for our wedding with 50 guests coming from abroad, including the welcome pre-party, wedding ceremony and dinner, and even next day entertainment for our guests.
To cut it short, Maria has done an absolutely outstanding job. All this time she has been our angel patiently guiding us through every step, carefully listening to all our desires and being very open to all our suggestions.
Maria is very customer-centric, responsible and responsive, delicate and pro-active, while totally focused on delivering beyond expectations and making this special day really unique and memorable.
Finally, Maria is an absolutely adorable personality, very communicative, empathic and easy to deal with. She made our wedding day a dream come true and unforgettable.
A Skype call was enough for us to be sure that Maria was the right wedding planner! She did everything to find the venues and services that matched our dream, she was always there to answer our questions, to discuss ideas and to advise us. We couldn’t do it without her, considering we live in China and had this crazy - but right - idea to get married in the most romantic and beautiful island of Santorini and with our closest family and friends. The fact that Maria lives in Santorini made everything easier and she took care of our papers and booked everything for the big day and even provided us the opportunity to participate in a documentary of a French TV network! How crazy is that?! We can say that our wedding was pretty much stress free! For us a wedding should be like this, after all it is one of the most important and special days of our lives and we wanted to enjoy every minute of it. And we did…with the indispensable help of Maria! She was our wedding planner and more than that, she was a friend. When we decided last minute we wanted bougainvilleas in the wedding ceremony decoration, she brought them from her courtyard and surprised us! We couldn’t be more happy and thankful! We’ll never forget the time we spent in Santorini and all the fun we had with Maria! We are looking forward to meeting you again in Santorini sometime soon!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you and all that has helped us with our wedding ceremony. Especially George who has a charming personality and no doubt a wonderful photographer, it was our absolute pleasure to celebrate the occasion with him. And of course, you Maria. We planned our wedding since long ago while we were still in Sydney. You had made it so easy for us, all the planning from afar did not stop this ceremony from being awesome. For that we owe you our gratitude. This day is indeed a mile stone in both of our lives, we will surely treasure the memory of it, and will definitely return to Santorini for our anniversary in the future.
Best wishes to all your future endeavours Maria. You are such a beautiful person, and you will without a doubt, be successful at everything at you do. Love from Echo and myself, and from both of our parents, who miss you dearly, from China.
