Our story

When searching for a wedding planner  I think it's so important to find someone that you relate to, who you know you'll have fun with and whom you can trust completely throughout the planning and design process.

Growing up my passion was wedding design. My first experience came when I worked in a floral shop in my hometown Athens, where I got to experience floral designing for different kinds of events, next to experienced professional floral designers. I then decided to attend courses in a wedding design institute in Greece and Holland.

When I came to Santorini island for the first time for summer holidays, I realized that this was the place to live. I first started working in Boutique Hotels at customer services and part of my job was to help couples, who would come to Santorini for their wedding, throughout the planning. Being given this opportunity I realized that I could finally follow my dream, in my dream place Santorini and use my designing and planning skills to make people happy. That’s how a summer afternoon in a small terrace overlooking the Aegean Sea the idea of Santo Weddings by MK was born.

As a wedding planner it is absolutely essential to be creative and approachable, with a wealth of great contacts who will be brought together seamlessly in order to create an incredibly special day.
I work hard to create unique events along with my couples, so that they still feel in control and that the celebration is truly theirs, and I pride myself on making wonderful friends along the way.

As well as making sure the atmosphere and entertainment is spot on. I also like to make things look visually amazing, whatever your style may be and pay attention to every single little detail that makes any event stand out from the rest. My best part in a wedding is the flower decoration. While I have my own personal style and love a vintage romantic colour scheme, I'm not afraid of mixing things up and doing something entirely new.

In addition to planning and designing truly memorable weddings and celebrations, I also share my life with my wonderful friends and family. I can't imagine a life without my work or my family & friends, all of them are very important to me.

Here are just a few more fun facts about me that my clients often learn along the planning process:

- Weddings is my passion it’s not just a job.

- I’ve been living in Santorini for the past six years.

- I love coffee above all other drinks - unless you count wine and Vodka!

- My ideal night out is a night in with my lovely people and good food.

- My dream is to travel the entire world.
Favorite quote: The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page!

-Every woman’s best moment is when she buys clothes and high heel shoes... well i am not different, but I share the same excitment when I'm buying wedding supplies.

I also do handmade crafts and I design wedding details whenever I have the chance, so you can keep an eye out for my instagram page

It’s a very easy decision to have your wedding in Greece, but I understand that it may seem difficult, when you are a long way from home. That’s why you can trust me and I can guarantee your special day will not only be remarkable, but also something that you, your family and friends will remember for a lifetime.
