Testimonials

Over the last 11 years we have planned many beautiful weddings and made lots of friends along the way, we have 100’s of testimonials so it’s not possible to show them all here (and I doubt you have time to sit and read them all) however we’re delighted to share some client feedback from our  most recent weddings. This page like our website is updated frequently so remember to check back. You can also read our client’s wedding stories and read client reviews on our facebook page.

Thanks very much Lisa – photos look great, photographer was a lovely man so please pass on my thanks.
Our day and the lead up was awesome – thank you so much for all your help.

The planners in Santorini were really helpful and the priest was fab. Sunset View Terrace were excellent too. So happy with the wine (and the sparkling!). People raved about the spanikopita – they were the best we had on the island! (pretty much rivaling the mother-in law’s home made ones)

Literally the best day of my life and we had an amazing 2 weeks out in Santorini. Our friends loved every moment of it – it was definitely the best wedding ever! (Apparently)

Please pass on my thanks to Sasha too – that paperwork is something I never want to go through again but we did it, with your help!

Anastasi Orthodox Church and Sunset View Terrace, 26th of September 2015

My husband and I would like to begin by thanking Lisa and her team for helping us create the most incredible wedding day.

We said “I Do” on the beautiful island of Santorini on the 17th August at Sunset View Terrace and had our evening reception at La Maltese Estate.

Lisa’s team both in the UK and Santorini ensured our day was everything we wished for and so much more.

We highly recommend The Bridal Consultant for your special day!

Thank you again!

HI Lisa,

We are both very well thank, we had an amazing day. It couldn’t of gone any smoother & better.

The planner in Santorini, and the team at Sunset View Terrace were great. Everything seemed very effortless, and fell into place nicely.

We will be sure to write up a further review, once we have settled into married life over the next couple of weeks smile emoticon

Many Thanks,

Hi Matt

We had the most amazing wedding day. From beginning to end everything went so well. The planner in Zante was fab, the wedding planner on the day and car driver were great, it was all just perfect. The tables and venue were better than we could ever have expected. The day was everything we wanted and more, and all the guests thought so too.

We cant thank everyone enough for making the day run so smoothly.

Thanks

Mamma Mia Taverna, 16th of August 2015

Hi Matt,

I meant to email you when we got back but I have only just started back at work again, so until this week I was still in holiday mode.

Just wanted to say a BIG Thank you to you and everyone else at The Bridal Consultants for making our wedding day so special! The day (and weeks leading up to the day) were very relaxed, it was so nice knowing we didn’t have to worry about cakes and flowers and so on like we would a wedding at home. Everything was what we wanted, the flowers, Décor and Food were perfect! The team in Zante were so great at keeping us calm and sorting out everything on the Zante side of things.

I also wanted to mention that the Greek dancers were soooo much fun and I’m so glad we added them at the last minute, they got everybody up dancing and laughing so they were GREAT! The fireworks were also amazing…way better than I imagined.

So thank you all so much….I would not have changed a thing

Hi Lisa

I hope you are well.

Just wanted to say a huge thanks from Angela and I for helping plan and coordinate such a beautiful wedding.

We had the most amazing day, and couldn’t have asked for a better day.

A huge thanks to you for such hard work in such a short space of time.

Do let me know where we can go and give a recommendation.

Many thanks

Hi Lisa,

Thank you for your kind words and email. We had the most incredible wedding day, it was everything we dreamt of and so much more. The team in Santorini were amazing! Oliver and I cannot express enough how thankful we are to you and everybody who played a part in helping us create such a memorable day.

Many thanks.

Best wishes,

Sunset View Terrace and The Maltese, 17th of August 2015

Hi Lisa,

Firstly apologies for not emailing you sooner. I must have tried to compose an email to you every day following the wedding but couldn’t articulate my feelings well enough on a phone from the pool/beach!

We had the most amazing and magical wedding day ever. It surpassed everything we thought we had imagined it could have been….we have not stopped talking about it….even this morning on the way to the train station we were still reminiscing!…and getting emotional!

Every single detail I had asked for was there which is down to you and your amazing team in Santorini.

The cake was amazing! Mr Aubrey was right to insist on it….

We couldn’t have out fireworks due to the wind but your team in Santorini plus the firework man ran around and got us sparklers for all the guests and some small fireworks that could be set off on the actual terrace (giant sparklers really)…

The harpist couldn’t play for the 2.5 hours we asked for but we had a pianist instead for an hour and half on the reception terrace which worked brilliantly.

I still am not really explaining how magical it all was. It was absolutely the best day of my life and I got my wish and danced in my dress till sunrise.

Thank you again for our champagne….we enjoyed that on our last night.

Just thank you, thank you for giving us best wedding day ever.

Dana Villas, 22nd of August 2015

Hi Lisa,

Thank you soo much, the wedding was a dream thanks to you and your team. Every detail was perfect and all of our guests had a ball!

First day back at work so as you can imagine, a bit crazy. We have also received our pictures and we are really happy with them- what a stunning setting.

Santorin Princess, 26th of July 2015

 

Hi Lisa,

Thank you. I have been meaning to email but you know how bad I am.

It was amazing – we loved every minute of it. Santorini is beautiful and we will definitely be going back at some point.

The wedding was perfect… we could not have wished for a better day. The venue was stunning and once we had been to see it on the Sunday when we arrived, we were really excited about the wedding day. The staff were great and always on hand to help and the team in Santorini were great. There were a few minor issues with the music as it stopped as I started walking down the aisle and took a while after the ceremony to get going but it didn’t matter as we were in our own little world. The plate smashing was a lovely addition to the day and the venue let us throw our pebbles (I had taken pebbles from our beach at home as place cards and written everyone’s name on them) over the cliff edge, which was fun. All our guests can’t stop talking about it – they loved it just as much as we did. The views and sunset were spectacular.

Thank you for all your help with the wedding, I will definitely be recommending you to anyone wanting to get married abroad.

Kind regards

Sophie

Sunset View Terrace, 23rd of July 2015

Hi Lisa and team,

Thank you so much for your help in organising our wedding in Santorini! Everything went well and the wedding venues were fantastic! Also a huge thank you for switching ceremony venues at the last minute so we could skype in our family from home! This made our day as we recently had a bereavement in the family which meant some family members were unable to come. Sunset View Terrace is a beautiful venue and the Theros wave bar is such a fantastic venue! The team in Santorini were brilliant and kept us right. I highly recommend getting married abroad and booking with the Bridal Consultants.

Kind regards, Mr and Mrs Sinclair.

Can you pass on our thanks to all your team in both Chester and Santorini for making are wedding so fantastic. The wedding and reception at Dana villars was out of this world. Your planner in Santorini was fantastic she made sure the day went with out a hitch.
Even after the wedding she picked us up from the hotel and took my wife and I to the town hall to sign all the paperwork. She helped take all the stress away and made sure we had a fantastic day.
we would recommend the Bridal consultant to to anyone thinking of getting married overseas you made sure our wedding day was all we asked for and more.
Once again we would both like thank you and your team for making our dream wedding come true.

Hi Lisa

We have been back from Santorini nearly a week and can not believe we got married on such a beautiful island!

Thank you so much to you and Sasha for helping us with all the arrangements and for a truly amazing and unforgettable wedding day!

Everything went to plan and all our guests had a fabulous time.

I had only seen Dana Villas in photos and on the web, but nothing can prepare you for the stunning view when you are actually there, it really is breathtaking and we are so happy to have married there.

Please thank the planners in Santorini for their help too, the finishing touches were perfect and they are such lovely people.

We will definitely be recommending you to all our friends and family!

Love Mr & Mrs Fisher-Smith xx

Dana Villas, 19th of June 2015

Hi Lisa and team,
We’ve just got home from beautiful Santorini and I had to send you a message to say thank you!
When we arrived on the Island we were shown our two breathtaking venues by the fantastic and extremely professional planners, they continued to assist with the smallest of detail throughout our stay and made our wedding day run without a hitch. The day itself exceeded all expectations and was one which we will never forget.
Thank you doesn’t seem enough!

Love Alex and Nikos
Dana Villas and Theros Wave Bar, 19th of June 2015

Hi Matt,
As I type we are sat in Zante airport awaiting our flight home. What can I say, words cannot express the appreciation and thanks we have for you and the bridal consultant. You made our lives so easy through the whole process.
James and I do like to have control over a situation so handing it entirely over to you guys was a bit strange for us but after the first stages of planning we new we were in safe hands.
The planner in Zante was a dream we found her so easy and helpful!!
Thank you so much again, for everything

Mamma Mia Taverna 18th of June 2015

i Matt,

Just a quick email to say a huge thank you to you and all at the Bridal Consultants for making our wedding in Zante the best day we could ever have dreamed of. The whole process was stress free, even my nerves of arriving and any problems occurring were totally unfounded and quickly disappeared once the pre wedding meeting had happened.

The Balcony was such a beautiful venue and the advice Lisa gave not to visit it before was just perfect, on the day it was amazing to see it for the first time on our special day.

The team in Zante were brilliant, there was nothing they could not help with and they ensured that everything was perfect, from the decor to the smooth running of the day. Going above and beyond what we expected.

The photographer, Nick, was great and was excited as we were to get some different and special photo’s to keep forever.

The hair and make up team were better than anything I have ever seen or experienced in the UK. For myself and the bridesmaids they copied photos we took with us perfectly and recommended different styles to complement each of us.

Our only complaint is that the day went to quick!!

Thank You again for all your help and hard work, you made it a perfect day!!

Sarah and Scott Sanderson
The Balcony, 22nd of June 2015

Hi Matt,

Thank you!

Our day was absolutely amazing, it was perfect from start to finish! We would do it all again tomorrow if we could! It’s such a shame to be home.

Would just like to say a massive thank you to you for all your help in making our day beautiful, amazing and everything we could have wished for.

Kind regards,

Hi Lisa,

We had an amazing day, we are just so sad it’s all over with. The planners in Santorini were great and ensured everything was perfect on the day.

With all your help and planning the day was perfect, all our guests had a great time too. We are quite a laid back couple, which you probably guessed throughout the planning phase, which was why we wanted a relaxed wedding abroad.
We wouldn’t change a thing, we have some amazing pictures to look back on.

Thanks again.

We’ve only really just got back to reality, we arrived home in Wednesday morning and the UK reception is next Saturday. So we can have a little rest first.
Thank you so much to you and team, wow, it was the wedding of our dreams. It couldn’t have been more perfect. In every way it was amazing. Thank you so much for being there. Even the sunset was the colours we wanted haha.
Thank you so much for our gift, how lovely.
We have had the time of our lives, our guests was saying it was their best day ever!
I think that we absolutely nailed it.. Everything was just perfect.
We can’t thank you and the planner in Santorini enough. Just fabulous, thank you x
Take care Lisa. It was a pleasure to meet you on our special day.

Hi Lisa,

Fraser and I got back from Santorini last week. We had a wonderful wedding, everything was perfect and looking back it seems like a dream.
Thank you so much for helping us having the best day of our life:). Cavo Ventus it is a unique amazing location!
The planners in Santorini were great and extremely helpful.
We couldn’t ask for more.
Thank you very much again!

Hi Lisa,

Steve and I both want to thank you and everyone involved with making our wedding the most beautiful and magical experience, everything went perfectly (except for me forgetting my vows – luckily we weren’t far from the hotel when I realised so the wedding planner turned the car round and we went back for them!!!), Cameo Island is the most amazing place, we couldn’t have picked a more picturesque location. The team in Zante were so helpful and made the day wonderful, everything was timed to perfection and the locations looked amazing, the decorations were stunning and everyone commented on how lovely it all was.

It really was a fairytale wedding and I can’t wait to see the photos. The photographer from Story Studios was fantastic. I would strongly recommend anyone getting married in Zante to have him as their photographer. He made everyone feel so relaxed, and the photos look amazing, I can’t wait to get the finished album.

I can’t thank you all enough for making our wedding day so truly amazing. We both said we would go back tomorrow and do it all again if we could.

Thank you sincerely

Julie & Steve

Terrazzo Beach, 27th of August 2014

Lisa, Matt and the Team,

The holiday is over and I have had my first few days back to reality.
I just wanted to let you know how perfect our special day was, seeing Cameo Island for that first time as I stepped out of the wedding car was completely breathtaking.
Our first moments as husband and wife, spent together with our closest friends and family on that private beach cove is something I will remember for the rest of my life with such fond memories.
The reception at Alexandra beach was incredible, and everything that we had discussed over many, MANY emails was incorporated to perfection, the horse and cart, the fireworks and the balloon release were my tied favourites! The team in Zante made sure that all of my little details for the venue were set up just perfectly and looked incredible.
I wouldn’t have changed a single thing and I am so grateful that the whole process was virtually stress free from day one.

Thankyou!

Mamma Mia Tavern, 16th of August 2014

Hi Lisa,
Sorry it has taken so long to reply. Been catching up with everything and had a 2nd wedding reception when we got home which was more stressful than the wedding itself and holiday put together!
Me and Pete had the most wonderful time! Everything was perfect, could not fault anything about the day only that it went too fast!
The wedding staff were brilliant, they helped us through every step of the day, it ran so smoothly and we enjoyed every second. The food at the reception was amazing! Everyone commented on how nice it was and the cake ….. Amazing!
Everything was set up at the reception with the items we had given and more, it was better than I could have imagined.
Everything about our day was perfect perfect perfect……what more can I say??
Thankyou to you for organising everything, to Matt for helping us with all the paperwork and to all the staff in Zante that made our special day go so smoothly.
Many Thanks

I hope you are well. Just wanted to say thank you so so much , Gavin and I had the most perfect day possible. The team in Crete has been great, the photographer and make up artist were out of this world and the hotel made our wedding like a celebrity wedding, we could not be happier.
Thanks again

Hello Lisa,

Firstly I would like to apologise for my late email. In all honestly we were not ready to return home and once we did he hit reality with a bump.
Our wedding…. Wow!!!
I don’t know if we can put into words how amazingly perfect it was for us from start to finish. And we need to thank you and the team in Zante for that. Both venues we’re breathtaking and the whole day went so smoothly.
Thank you so much for all your help and making our special day so magical.

Thank you

Hi Lisa
As promised, I said we would get back to you once we were home and had everything sorted etc. We are now back at work and therefore back to reality after our amazing wedding in Crete!
You probably got the impression from my below email that we had the most perfect day we could have wished for! Thank you so much for all of your help in organising our big day and ensuring it went so smoothly! Thank you also to Matt for organising the legal side of things and providing us with clear instructions on what we needed to do and when!
The hotel we stayed in was amazing which, together with the hot sunny weather and beautiful surroundings, got our holiday off to a great start. As soon as we met with Caroline we knew we were in good hands, she went through all the finer details with us and took us down to the venue to explain exactly what would happen and when. She was there on the day to ensure everything went to plan and was just lovely! She even assisted with getting a guests SLR camera back after he had left it in the taxi after arriving at the beach! She had everything under control!
The photographer was great too, she had such a good rapport with us and all of the guests, she kept everyone in line with great humour. We are really pleased with the sample of photos which we have seen so far and cannot wait to see the rest.
The ceremony was perfect – it was a lovely service and the words were very fitting. We also got a document to keep with the words in Greek and English, which is a nice momento. Arron’s young brother did a reading at the ceremony which he had written himself and set everyone off crying, it was very emotional (I just hope I’m not crying on ALL of the photos!).
Everyone commented that they really enjoyed the food and there was certainly plenty of it! I just wish I could have eaten more! The cake was beautiful too!
The beach party was definitely a good choice for our family, and we’re so glad we chose to go ahead with it after being a bit indecisive! It was definitely worth it and it was great dancing under the stars until 4am! One guest in particular was a bit worse for wear by the end of the night, too much Raki and Ouzo!
Finally, the DJ did a great job in getting everyone up dancing and the staff during the reception and beach party were so attentive and couldn’t do enough for everyone. The young barman at towards the end of the night came over and said that they do a lot of weddings, but ours was one of the best he had worked at, he loved that everyone was smiling and dancing and having a good time! Equally our guests said that they had a brilliant time and some commented it had been the best wedding they had been to, which is a great compliment!
I could go on for a while but this email is already really long, so all that is left to say is thanks again for all of your efforts in making our big day so special!
Thanks

Hi Lisa,
We are both extremely happy with how the day went. We couldn’t of hoped it went better. All the staff at the farm were fantastic. Annika was amazing, very organised and kept that side of the wedding stress free for us. A lot of our guest were blown away by the venues and said its been the best wedding they’ve been to. We can send you some photos when we get them?
Kind regards,

Traditional Farm Crete, 7th September 2013

Hi Lisa
Am finally back to reality (work) after returning from Crete.
Chris and I would firstly like to say a huge thanks to you, Matt and all the team out in Crete for the most amazing day and night that we could have hoped for.
The attention to detail was faultless and we have received so many compliments from our guests on what an amazing venue and service we all received; we truly could not have wished for a more perfect day!
Chris and I will always be grateful for the wonderful memories we have from our wedding. Nothing was too much trouble for everyone and everything we asked for was accommodated. Thank you for making our wedding so special!
Everyone has said how everything was planned to precision that they day and night just flowed with something different happening at every minute.
The food was amazing, and it just kept coming and coming, although we all still managed to eat the evening buffet, which was very welcome after the amount of shots and cocktails that were consumed.

Jo & Chris

Beach Wedding, Rethymno, Crete, 9th July 2013

Hi Lisa,
Just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work and for a fantastic job in planning our wedding in Crete. What can I say, it’s was perfect. It was beyond our expectations and I would honestly not change a single thing about our wedding day. Even the weather was perfect.
The team on the day did a fabulous job of dressing the venue and the tables, the staff were fantastic, making sure all our guests were looked after and the drinks were flowing. The food was just delicious and plentiful, everybody commented on how delicious the food was and how full they were.
The venue and the staff just made our day even more special. All our guests commented on what a beautiful location it was and how the staff made it even more special. One of the waiters who the lads nick named ‘George’ for some reason, made sure the raki was flowing. Strangely enough he even looked like Dan! I will send you a picture, you need to see it to believe it! ‘George’ said our wedding was the best day he had had at work in the last 5 years and one of the other waitresses said to me ‘Your wedding is like a movie.’ You can not ask for better compliments than that. It was also made even more special by all our guests that made the journey to celebrate with us.
We really can not put into words how perfect the day was, we just wish we could do it all again.
Please send our special thank you to everyone who made our wedding day the day it was.
It’s the best wedding I’ve ever been to!!
Thank you,

Nicola and Dan Bluck
Traditional Farm Estate, Crete, 30th of May 2013

Dear Lisa
I wanted to write & say a massive thank you for all your help, as well as that of Erika & Nicoletta, in arranging our wedding day.
Everything went very smoothly & the day was just magical.
Its a shame we didn’t get to meet you in person however you handled everything perfectly & we couldn’t be happier with how the day went.
Our guests were blown away by the beautiful venue & also thought that you all did an amazing job organising everything.
Thank you so much again for all you did to make our wedding a memorable one.
Apologies for the late message I have been paid up in bed with food poisoning since returning to the UK so you can imagine its been a very depressing return to normality for me!
Best regards
