    Ellwed Talks with Elizabeth Cass-Kanti a Wedding Celebrant from Greece #3

    Ellwed Talks with Elizabeth Cass-Kanti a Wedding Celebrant from Greece #3

    Welcome to Ellwed Talks – the first podcast about destination weddings in Greece! 

     Join me in today’s interview with Elizabeth Cass-Kanti, a Wedding Celebrant who writes, creates and performs wedding ceremonies for couples all over Greece. Originally from the UK, Elisabeth found her passion as a wedding celebrant after working in tourism and property management on the island of Rhodes where she lives today. In 2015 her life path led her to meet a friend who introduced her to this career, where Elisabeth trained with the fellowship of professional celebrants. With over 5 years of experience in working as a Celebrant and conducting wedding ceremonies all over Greece, she considers each one of her wedding ceremonies a unique accomplishment in itself! In addition to that Elisabeth prides herself to have a ninja like ability to really ‘get’ the couple, what makes them tick as a couple and more importantly, what makes them firmly believe that they will continue in the absolute knowing that they are ‘right’ for each other. She loves to incorporate Greek wedding traditions in a secular way into the ceremonies. She especially enjoys working with multicultural couples as there are always so many cultural and symbolic elements to explore and potentially weave into the ceremony. 

    In this episode we talk about those traditions, tips on best locations and what a celebrant can do for your wedding in Greece! Let’s get started! Get in touch
