According to my Mum, ‘self-praise is no recommendation’. And because Mum’s are always right, here’s some praise instead from the beautiful couples I have had the pleasure to create lasting memories for:
“Thank goodness we found Elizabeth!
Communication with her was excellent from the very start and we spent months working on our ceremony together to get it just right. Her words are personal, moving and funny – most of our guests were laughing and crying at the same time!
She is definitely much more than your typical celebrant. Our venue was quite difficult to get to and my parents missed their ferry to get to us the day before the wedding. Elizabeth text me to say she was on her way early to calm me down! By the end of the ceremony she was a member of the family. All of our guests loved her and have since commented on how fabulous she was on the day!
Thank you so so much for everything you did for us Elizabeth. Biggest hugs, Thom and Becki xxx”
Thom and Becki, Wedding ceremony, Evia
“Dear Elizabeth. Where do I start? I was there as the incredibly proud mum of the bride and yes everything you said about the weather and the atmosphere and the love that enveloped the whole day was absolutely true. It was awesome in the true sense of the word. Your involvement from the start – in helping and supporting Becki and Thom with their vows and the ceremony generally was fantastic. Yes, I agree they are beautiful people, but you brought out the absolute best in them. It felt as if you were a much loved and valued member of our family as indeed you have become. You are an incredible lady who made the day so, so special. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
“Just a quick few lines to say thanks a million for all your stirling efforts to make our renewal ceremony uber special for us. It was indeed a very special day made all the better by your contribution!”
Pat and Fiona, Vow renewal, Rhodes
“We could not have been happier with our fantastic wedding celebrant, Elizabeth Cass Kanti. Elizabeth was with us every step of the way in planning our wedding ceremony and we felt all her preparations were very thorough. Coming from different cultural and religious backgrounds, we as a couple wanted to include some of the Greek orthodox rituals, some of the customs from the Protestant church and some typical Norwegian wedding traditions. Not the easiest of tasks for anyone, but Elizabeth understood our wishes completely and made the most beautiful, seamless and personal wedding ceremony for us, without “stepping on anyones toes” with regard to all the traditions. We felt that everything she spoke about in the ceremony represented us 100% and got the perfect start to married life with her words. We warmly recommend Elizabeth as your wedding celebrant!”
Melina and Erik, Wedding Ceremony, Rhodes
“Thank you so much for everything you did, we will treasure yesterday always. Many thanks again.”
Jason and Jenny, Vow Renewal Ceremony, Rhodes
“Elizabeth performed the ceremony for my parents’ vow renewal yesterday and she was absolutely amazing. She met up with us prior to talk things through and was so attentive on the day, ensuring everything was perfect. The ceremony itself was written by Elizabeth and I must say it was absolutely beautiful. So personal and detailed and everyone was extremely impressed. I have to say a massive thank you and we couldn’t recommend her highly enough if you want something different, personal and so so special. Thank you so much!”
Ray and Christina, Vow renewal, Rhodes
“Elizabeth performed our wedding ceremony in Tilos. It was the most magical, perfect wedding and better than what we imagined! Elizabeth was so easy to work she, she got us and our playful boho spirit! The ceremony was beautifully tailored and she even had our guests do a surprise ‘flash mob’ reading! We were in tears of joy for most of the ceremony and so were most of our guests! Couldn’t have asked for a more special ceremony- thank you so much Elizabeth! We will let you know when it’s time to renew our vows in 10 years!”
Ash and Oliver, Wedding ceremony, Tilos
“I had the pleasure of working with Elizabeth on a wedding recently and have to say I was deeply moved. The couple had been together for 40 years and while their own vows were touching, Elizabeth really did add the cherry on the cake with her added details!”
Natassa, Wedding planner on Vow renewal, Rhodes
“I had the immense pleasure of being a guest at a wedding where Elizabeth performed the ceremony. Within a few moments she had us captivated in the story of how the bride and groom had met. Sharing details of the love they shared in such a beautiful and emotive way. I know i was one of many who left there feeling that weddings need to more about the journey taken by both bride and groom. I could not think of a better person to write and narrate the tales of adventures taken and yet to come. Thank you for giving the bride and groom the day they had hoped for. And giving us guests a little snapshot of the story so far.”
Babita, wedding guest In Lefkas
“I was lucky enough recently to witness Elizabeth conducting a fabulous beach Wedding Ceremony on the beautiful Island of Lefkada, I would not say that I am an over emotional person, but the beautiful ceremony brought a tear to my eye.
After witnessing Elizabeth’s ceremony the attention to detail & calm organisation meaning it all went like clock work, the beautiful wording of the ceremony & added little details of lighting candles just added special touches, Elizabeth also read a poem in Greek for the couples Greek relatives & although I could not understand the words I certainly grasped the sentiment.
My Husband & I are renewing our Wedding Vows next September. I have every faith that the vision of what I would like for our day will be met. Elizabeth’s extensive knowledge of Greece, the Greek Islands & their traditions have been invaluable in the organisation of our day.”
Karen, another friend observing a wedding ceremony!
“We would like to thank you for conducting a beautiful ceremony – everyone commented on how special and heart felt it was which is down to your lovely words and planning!”
