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.

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.
