Where there is a union of hearts and elegant heartfelt hospitality is required…Philoxenia Events.
Love is unique and when a joining requires hospitality for differing tastes and traditions, then that is the moment where subtlety, attention, skill and beauty make the perfect occasion. Philoxenia Events prides itself with listening and creating a bespoke experience, yet we are so much more than wedding planners, we are experts in quality. We want you to feel at ease, we want to be the family that help you when you want yours to simply relax and enjoy your day.
We are unique in that we spent our early years living Mediterranean lifestyles in Greece and in Italy, so essentially, we are locals with an understanding of what we are offering you. We and our carefully chosen staff, are in a position to liaise with: vendors of sophisticated wedding paraphernalia – from florists to cake makers; AV system suppliers; restaurateurs – with our contacts which include great chefs, staff and mixologists.
Founder Giorgio Tosato has spent time earning respect and curating his craft as a mixologist and he has trained staff to emulate his vision. Co-founder Silia Smirniopoulou has an education in Communication and International Marketing, she has earned her reputation as Events Executive, based in London.
We, at Philoxenia Events, understand our local ingredients and can source them, plus more particular requests. We have the knowledge to help you plan your menu and beverage lists. Managing the bar and creating exclusive cocktails that define you, is our forte.
We are multilingual, which gives you added peace of mind when we are planning your day. Our knowledge about culture, ethics and landscape in our respective homelands is vast. Add to that over 10 years in London, working within prestigious restaurants – we believe we have a powerful combination that allows us to create your vision wedding and, thereafter your best memories. We have developed the art of grace with other cultures. We endeavour to be empathetic to your choices and needs. We understand the little nuances that change a good event, into a spectacular unforgettable experience. Our work ethic, care and time spent in cosmopolitan cities, has given us an understanding that allows us to ask you the right questions, so that nothing is overlooked.
We humbly declare that Philoxenia Events are experts at destination weddings in Greece, Italy and London, but of course we are happy to talk to you about other destinations. We can assist in helping you find the venue for an affair with an abundance of guests, or something more intimate. Facilitation and advice about accommodation and transportation for guests is also a service we provide.
Greece – picturesque islands in the Aegean Sea, kissed by the sun as it rises and sets, historic architecture, beaches with an array of coloured sands and delicious rustic dishes, with Mediterranean and Turkish influences.
Italy – unspoiled villages, beaches with captivating sunsets, medieval castles, ancient walks and an amazing array of sophisticated food and wine. It, of course was the setting for arguably the most beautiful love, that of Romeo and Juliet. Choose from destinations in the southern heel of Puglia or more central Tuscany.
England – with London as its capital is a melting pot of cultures. It has unusual mix of old and new, with Buckingham Palace and a variety of stunning modern architecture within minutes of each other. There is an array of museums on your doorstep.
