My husband and I had visited Corfu on holiday while still dating. We knew this was a special place and fell in love with the island. Once engaged, we did a lot of research on potential wedding locations in London, as well as all over Greece and Italy, speaking to various wedding planners in several cities including Belli Momenti.
The final decision to host our wedding in Corfu was based on several factors, including the following: 1) The island’s historical significance (and specifically how it relates to both of our own personal family heritages) 2) The landscape and unsurpassed natural beauty of the island 3) Achilleion Palace (Our favourite venue) 4) Aris Papachristou Aris provides knowledge, professionalism, creativity, passion and fun – all of which are paramount for a successful wedding!
As a Corfiot himself, Aris shared all his secrets of the island with us. He knows the best spots for any style of celebration and has a strong network of friends and vendors on the island. This enables him to provide the best recommendations for any wedding at any price point. Aris referred us to some of the most talented vendors on the island. At the top of this list are the caterers (Venetian Well), florist (Leonidas Rammos), baker for wedding cake and dessert table (The Cake Boutique), music and lighting (Dj Spartakos, church choir, local musicians in town, saxophonist and bongo drummer). These recommendations, in particular, were the most important to us and the results were truly outstanding by any comparison.
Aris is an exceptional wedding planner because of his dedication, strong work ethic and positive attitude. We felt that Aris consistently showed care and concern for our overall satisfaction. If we expressed any sort of disappointment, he took it seriously and did everything to fix it. For example, we had a religious wedding and would have had a much more challenging experience if it were not for Aris navigating the way. He was very careful with this process and we visited the priest several times to ensure that our documents were correct. After our wedding, Aris completed extra tasks for us related to documentation and never asked for anything in return.
It is obvious that Aris is devoted to his clients and goes above and beyond for each couple. We really love Aris and his team at Belli Momenti.
It is worth mentioning that we are also grateful for Niki, who is an important member of this team. She was always helpful and pleasant to work with. Their efforts made the day run smoothly in addition to creating a very exciting and beautiful celebration! Corfu is a truly magical place and we knew that the right wedding planner could guide us to create an unforgettable and personal experience for us and our guests.
Aris did just that! The majority of our guests reported that it was the best wedding they have ever experienced. We are very happy with the outcome of our wedding and encourage other couples to trust Belli Momenti with their wedding planning!
*We do have one bit of advice if you’re having a summer wedding: you should endeavour to know exactly what you want and to be as organized as possible before June hits. Try to do as much planning as you can and choose final details in May, even if your wedding is in August! Corfu becomes so busy in the summer months that all the vendors were difficult to get in touch with. We made the mistake of assuming they would be as accessible in June as they were in March. We simply hadn’t considered the fact that their availability changes so drastically. The result was a lot of final details being determined the week of our wedding, which meant less time enjoying Corfu with our friends and family.
