We were extremely proud and honored to organise this wedding
as it was the first time we have been involved with the traditional aspects of a Chinese wedding. Sally is originally from Hong Kong and Steven Vietnam, they love Greece and originally looked at Santorini as their wedding option, Santorini is the market leader for Asian weddings in Greece. Luckily they fell in love with the uncommercial nature of Kefalonia and its greenery combined with the beautiful Ionian sea.
Their day started with a legal declaration with Mr Kekatos in Keramies town hall then they returned to the villa to commence the games ,
whereby the brides girlfriends must set the Groom and his boys tasks in order to win the hand of the bride , these days it is mainly humorous games , once it is decided he has earned the right t marry her he must change into traditional chinese wedding attire and carry his bride down from her house
Then both in traditional Chinese wedding clothe they serve tea to both sets of parents , kneeling at all time as a mark of respect. . Each parent will then bestow gifts of jewelry onto each of them and of course the famous Chinese red envelopes with money inside. The bride and groom then prepared for their vow ceremony which was in traditional European style and the bride wore a classic white wedding dress. We all felt very privileged to be part of this unique wedding day here in Kefalonia and we hope that this is just the beginning for the Asian market to choose Kefalonia as their destination wedding location.
