Sarah and Kevin from the UK asked us to help arrange their special day in July 2016 which featured a relaxed ceremony and cruise aboard the beautiful MS Christina boat which they had fallen in love with on a previous holiday to Lefkas.
We collected the wedding couple and their guests from Lygia harbour on the east coast of Lefkas and sailed over to Meganisi island. The guests enjoyed drinks on board and the pleasant breeze from the sailing boat was welcome by all from the afternoon July sunshine.
The ceremony took place at the small beach of Agios Ioannis on the east coast of Meganisi and after the ceremony the couple danced along the beach and the small jetty!
The return cruise took the party back towards Lefkas island past the private island of Skorpios. The couple broke with tradition and instead of a cake, they cut and served zingy lemon pies decorated with berries and fresh flowers with glasses of prosecco to everyone. The wedding reception was held at Seaside Restaurant in Geni, Lefkas with a Greek meze wedding dinner and Greek dancers to entertain the guests.
