The most special day made completely perfect by the Happily Ever After team.
We are incredibly thankful to Anthi-Maria for her expertise and hard work in making the whole process completely stress free.
A few months prior to the wedding we received communication that the original wedding planner we had been working with had left the company. This caused us a little bit of concern but within minutes of meeting Anthi-Maria we realised that we were in great hands with a very talented wedding planner who completely understood what we wanted, even when we didn’t know ourselves!
The wedding day itself was perfect! We had so many comments on how stunning the venue looked and the staff were all so professional, kind and welcoming. The level of detail and thought made the day so special for us and beyond what we ever expected.
The food was amazing and very popular with our guests. When the food was being served we realised we hadn’t accounted for a vegetarian which caused us to panic, however this was handled so professionally with the team telling us not to worry and they had sorted it within minutes!
Following the wedding Anthi was still there to support us with anything we needed and we are incredibly lucky to have made a friend for life. We couldn’t recommend a better wedding planner and wish we could do it all over again!
Dear Anthi-Marie and Team,
We would like to thank all of you for your amazing organisation skill, your professionalism and most of all your kindness and attentiveness to our needs.
There is nothing we would change except if possible, time itself. We didn’t want it to end. Your whole family made us so welcome. We can’t thank you enough for everyone’s love for our happiness. The Pallas family have etched themselves on our hearts, like the love we have for Rhodes.
The respect we have for your culture, hopefully shone through by the choices we made for our wedding. Our first dance An Eisai Ena Asteri by Nikos Vertis, part of the words; “Don’t ever fade don’t ever leave me, let this love never be gone. But if you are a dream, turn off the lights, let me (us) live in my (our) dreams. Don’t let the sun come up, so it can never end”.
The words are appropriate to Pascale and me, but also for love we have of Matina, Pefkos and Rhodes. We want everyone to know, that we felt like we were the only ones ever to be married at Matina’s. That is how amazing we felt inside. Every detail you put in to our wedding day was past expectation. We wish you and your family all the very best, and hopefully we will be back next year for our first anniversary.
All our Love comes to you. Mike and Pascale xx
To Anthi-Maria and the team at Happily Ever After for going above and beyond.
Thank you ? You gave us everything we wanted and more. The best wedding planner in the world.
To Valentina..... you are just amazing. You made our family feel welcome from the day we arrived. We’ve made a friend for life. We will for forever grateful for the love and support you have all shown us.
Lots of love, Mr & Mrs Frisby
Well, where do we start.
We are still on cloud nine after our perfect wedding day, which was the first to be held at the Agios Constantinos & Agia Elena Chapel in the grounds of the Lindos Village Spa Resort in the Vlicha Bay area. It was just beautiful and personal. Anthi-Maria, our wedding planner, worked so hard to make sure we had the day of our dreams. Nothing was too much trouble. We had constant support and numerous emails throughout the year.
Our reception was held at Thea rooftop terrace in Pefkos which was the perfect size and layout, as we had Greek dancers who are very entertaining. There was plenty of room to dance the Zorba ! Everyone of our guests agreed that it absolutely made the evening. The food is delicious at the Thea Rooftop, and served by lovely staff.
We didn't want the day to end. We cannot recommend Happily Ever After enough. If you have a dream day in mind, they can help make it happen.
We would like again to thank you Anthi-Maria, for everything and just being wonderful. Your Lovely Mum , Tsambika your assistant, who calmed Deans nerves at the Chapel and the beautiful Valentina for keeping us entertained ? We found everyone we met to be wonderful and so helpful and for his reason we will be returning for our first wedding anniversary ?
Much Love, Jo & Dean Winney xx
It was truly the most perfect day!
I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to Anthi-Maria Pallas and her amazing team for being so wonderful and planning the most perfect day for my husband and I!
We originally booked our wedding through a travel operator back in March 2017, completely oblivious to the numerous complications we were going to encounter. With just 3 months to go until our big day with 50 guests due to fly to Rhodes, we made the crazy decision to cancel our wedding.
I rang Anthi-Maria at Happily Ever After in a state of panic, a phone call she says she will never forget. She was so reassuring and understanding on the phone, I knew from that moment I could put my trust in her to organise such a special day to us.
From that first phone call, we emailed more or less every other day, arranging everything to do with our wedding day. Nothing was ever too big or too little for Anthi-Maria. She arranged every little detail I asked for perfectly.
She dealt with my fussy, sometimes odd requests with ease.
The whole planning and organising went so smooth I was sure that something was going to go wrong on the day because, who has it that easy in the run up to their wedding day without a hitch on the day right? Well the day was more perfect and beautiful than we ever imagined. When we first met Anthi-Maria, she was so friendly and welcoming, we had an instant connection.
I had a picture in my head of how it was all going to look but it was so much more than I could have ever asked for and for that, I will be forever grateful to Anthi-Maria and her team. Anthi-Maria and her team worked tirelessly on the day making sure that everything was perfect at all times. Even once the evening had come to an end, my husband and I stayed with Anthi-Maria, her lovely mother and her team talking and reminiscing about the day, it was the perfect end to the most perfect day.
Anthi-Maria, you are simply amazing and you have become a dear friend of mine who I will cherish forever. We cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for us. You made our day truly special, a day we will never ever forget. ????

What a fabulous day we had. Wish we could do it all again. Xx
Happily ever after gave us the wedding of our dreams. Anthi-Maria was always there to discuss any queries with. On the day everything went to plan thanks to exceptional organisation. The decoration of the venue was more beautiful than I could ever imagine.
Anthi-Maria did a fabulous job and given us a day that we will certainly never forget. She is truly a lovely special lady and we are so happy she was our wedding planner. Thank you so much for such a lovely day! We will be back to see you all soon. Thank you again xxx
We visited Rhodes a few years ago when our children were very young and fell in love with this beautiful island, in particular Lindos, and the idea of having our wedding there in years to come. Once we started planning our wedding, some 5 years later, we had no hesitation in choosing Happily Ever After as our wedding planners. We had been following their Facebook page for some time along with that of the Matina hotel. We soon had our wedding date arranged for the following August and booked for our family-moon stay at the Matina.
Throughout the months leading up to the wedding, Anthi-Maria was quick to respond to my many emails. She dealt with my queries and requests with kindness, professionalism and patience. No request was too much trouble and I sensed her sharing our excitement for the wedding right from our very first contact. Sending over the paperwork to Rhodes, nearer to the date of the wedding went very smoothly, and I needn't have worried about this aspect at all.
It was lovely to meet Anthi-Maria finally at our in-resort meeting. She had kindly arranged for us to meet at the Melenos Suites where our wedding and reception were taking place, along with Chrysanthi, the wedding coordinator from Melenos. Anthi-Maria and Chrysanthi went over all of the details for the day and we couldn't have been more excited. In fact, after our meeting, Anthi-Maria even took me to a nearby supermarket to kindly help me source some gifts for the table for which I am very grateful!
On the day, Anthi-Maria and her team did an outstanding job of coordinating the wedding party departure from the Matina to Lindos and keeping me calm! Well what can I say about the venue and venue decoration, absolutely stunning! We could never have imagined such a beautiful location for our wedding. Anthi-Maria and her team worked so hard and did an amazing job of decorating the 'secret garden' twice, once for our ceremony and again for our evening reception meal. The transformation of this beautiful location from ceremony to evening reception was breath-taking - every last detail from the chair and table flower arrangements to the twinkling fairy lights above us was perfect! Anthi-Maria and her team stayed with us until our evening entertainment started ensuring that everything ran smoothly. As a surprise for our guests, we had arranged for some Greek dancers. I cannot tell you how much we enjoyed the dancers Kris and Maria - it really made our day even more special and memorable. Anthi-Maria arranged for us to go to the Town Hall a few days later where she helped us to sort all of the legal aspects.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being amazing at what you do and for giving us a simply perfect wedding day filled with many lovely memories.

From the first contact with happily ever after, we have been so pleased with the service.
Before we arrived in Rhodes, we sent so many emails asking questions and they were all answered promptly and politely, whatever the question.
Anthi-Maria and the team made our day so very special. Nothing was too much trouble, they all went above and beyond what we expected. From upgrading our room, to recommending and booking a restaurant for all of our guests when we arrived. We could not have had better service. So very friendly and helpful and professional. We definitely would recommend Happily Ever After to anyone wanting to get married in Rhodes.
Thank you so much for helping to make our day so wonderful and special ?
Kev and Lisa
