yvonne.jpg 24th September, 2012

Dear Helen, 
  I just wanted to thank you again for doing my hair trial with me when I came to Santorini and then doing my hair on my wedding day. Our wedding day turned out so perfect in every way and you were such a very big piece of that for me.
  Brides to be are told you have a hair trial at least 2 or 3 months before their wedding day. We weren’t able to visit Santorini before the wedding and arrived only 5 days before, so naturally I was feeling quite apprehensive by the time we finally met.
  At my hair trial, you really listened to what I wanted and created such a glamorous and sexy hair style for me that I had only dreamt about having for my wedding day.   With my hair being so fine, not only had I worried about how it could look voluminous, but I also worried how it would possibly hold my tiara and veil too. We tried a few ideas and you took away all the stresses I’d been having about how to attach my veil by telling me that it was your job to worry about it and not mine.    From the moment I met you (which was just a couple of hours from jumping off the plane), I knew I’d made the right decision in choosing you to do my hair. I was so excited about my bridal hair after my trial.Not only did I have fabulous hair on my wedding day that just didn’t move all night, you were also such a calming influence that day, telling us lots of funny stories and you even touched up my makeup for me. I would thoroughly recommend you for bridal hair and also for makeup. Whilst you didn’t do all my makeup, you had all the tools of the trade and were kind enough to help me make my dark circles under my eyes disappear as well as the dark pigment on my forehead completely disappear from sight. I have tried all sort of products to do this and nothing was as effective.
So thank you again for working miracles and making my hair just as nice as all those girls in bridal magazines.

Hi Helen! 
I do hope you are both well and enjoying your winter break now! 
I really was delighted with all that you contributed to our wedding day, which was perfect. I was especially touched that you lent me your very special lip liner for the day, and I do hope that the wedding planner delivered it safely back to you.  
My hair and make up stayed perfect throughout the day, and everybody is amazed that I look so nice on the photos...so a HUGE "Thank You" for your invaluable input!  
Please see a link to our wedding web album so that you can see the proof of your amazing handywork.....
I hope you and our husband both have a very happy life and enjoy all that you do.
 
Thank you so much again,  Love Brenda Swan xx

Hi Helen. I just wanted to send you a quick message to thank you and Kosta for helping make our wedding day such a special and unforgettable occasion. Kosta's photos are wonderful and we are both extremely grateful for all of his help and organization during the ceremony and the walk to the reception. Things couldn't have gone more smoothly, and that is all thanks to the two of you. And of course Maria's hair and makeup looked stunning, so thank you both for that!

I hope you both have a great time for the rest of the season there in Santorini, and maybe we'll meet one day in Australia! Or, if you ever happen to be in Copenhangen, shoot me a message and Maria and I will take you and Kosta our for a drink!

All the best,Gavin (Copenhangen / Denmark)

 

beverley.jpg 22nd September, 2011

Hi Helen, 
I just wanted to write to say thank you again for your amazing job on my hair and makeup on the wedding day - they both turned out so well and looked really incredible and beautiful in the pictures.

Kosta also did such a great job on the other girls' hair - they were all so happy with the end product. My mom in particular said she felt really beautiful - which was so nice to hear - you two are really an amasing team!

I thought I'd attach a few pictures of you at work and the final product.

Thanks again and very best wishes on the upcoming season.
take care, Bev (Sydney / Australia)

Dear Helen and Kosta, Jason and I just wanted to drop you a quick line to thank you both for helping make our wedding day so perfect.We had the most amazing day, and it was everything we dreamed of and more.

Helen - thank you for putting me at so much ease! It is always hard to put your trust in a complete stranger with your hair and make-up, especially on the most important day of your life, but you were a true professional in every way. I particularly enjoyed reminicing with you on 80's music! And I will find out the name of that book for you....

So once again, thank you both for everything. Nadine and Jason Albuery!

Dear Kosta and Helen

Thank you so much for creating the wedding of our dreams in such a magical place as Santorini. All we knew is that we wanted a small intimate, romantic wedding at sunset with the beautiful caldera as a background. 
You really kept us calm through a stressful occasion, Helen was wonderful with my makeup and marvellous in doing my hairstyle for not only me but my Mum too. The smallest details were never too much for them to help us with. It seemed too beautiful to be true! Nobody could believe that we had managed to organize such an event through the internet so far way!

Everyone is amazed at how beautiful our pictures were. The sunset was really beautiful overlooking the ocean and the caldera.

Best Wishes, Koula and John  (Brisbane, Australia )

Dear helen & Mr. Kosta,how are you?? Hope you both are doing well.
Thank you thank you sooooooooooo much for everything you did for our wedding.

Helen, my hair & make-up are perfect!! You made me feel like a princess. Also, it was lots of fun to spend the morning with you. You are soooo lovely person ;) You know, I have a lot of JAPANESE hair, which is thick & strong... , and to tell you the truth, I was worried if it could stay until our special dinner, but I didn't need to worry. It stayed in place whole day. You practiced magic, didn't you?!

Mr. Kosta, thank you for the photos. We love them all, how beautiful our photos are!! Our families and friends have been sooooooo impressed when we have shown them our photos and they say that our wedding looks like a p erfect dream. How beautiful Santorini is!!

Dear Helen, all well here, but we all miss you and the island and had the worst Santorini-withdrawal ever coming home. My entire party is still Facebooking eachother, going on about how they want to go back. I guess, that's how to know we had a great time, right?!
 
I know you are running to and fro between all the brides-to-be, so I won't take up more of your time. Eternally grateful for your assistance on one of the most beautiful days of my life. All our love to Kosta and many thanks!

Hi Helen & Kosta, I hope you are both well and enjoyed your winter break. Dan & I can't believe that it's nearly a year since we got married and are now planning our 1st Anniversary party.

Firstly we want to thank you both for our superb weddding photo's and the amazing make-up which made the photo's even more fantastic. We still can't believe how wonderful the day turned out to be and how beautiful the whole ceremony was. What's more the the area Kosta took us to to do the private shots was breath taking and we have since blown some of the pictures up and have them displayed around our home.I hope you both have another successful summer and I hope we can say in contact.

Kind regards Karen & Dan.

Dear Kosta and Helen, hope both of you are well and ready for the break in Hong Kong and Australia. Ray and myself are doing well apart from busy with the weddding banquet which is happening in December in Hong Kong.
Anyway, thank you so much for your work during our wedding in Santorini! As mentioned and repeatedly, I LOVE my makeup and we LOVE the photos so much. You both have done an amazing job in making our wedding perfect. My Wedding Planner was right, I shouldn't be so stressful prior to the wedding as you are brilliant! Indeed, I can't ask for anything better than this. We have shown photos to friends and colleagues and they all applauded. Everything was just natural and intimate... What we appreciate the most is, you are not just professional but also PASSIONATE about what you do, which makes us feel more fun and enjoyable during the whole photo shooting session. Thanks for making our wedding more lively!
We wish you all the best and would love to keep in touch with you... Take care. Love, Maureen & Ray ( Hong Kong )

Dear Helen, we got home on Friday and slowly life is turning back to normal with going back to work today quite a shock to the system. I wanted to say a big thank you for the wonderful hair and makeup, it was perfect I have never felt so glamorous. The whole experience was perfect. Also thank you for the make up lesson from someone who hardly wore any make up you have inspired me to make more of an effort, and have been out on the search for charcoal blue eye shadow.
Again thank you and I hope that are paths across again somehow. Best Wishes (Alainea Stark / United Kingdom)

Helen and Kosta, we are (sadly) back in Dallas and though it has been almost a month since our wedding (whoa!), we still can't get over how beautiful our photos are. All of our friends and family say that our wedding looks like a fairy tale and that the photos look like postcards. Sometimes when I go back and look at them I can't believe we were really there. My hair and makeup were perfect and Helen, it was so much fun spending the day with you. I felt like I was with an old friend and I didn't have a second to be nervous or anxious about the wedding later that evening. There is something really nice about spending your wedding day being taken care of by a married couple that is so obviously in love. We can't thank you enough for everything you did for us that day and we certainly won't forget you.  Meredith (and Chris)

20th October, 2008

Carol and I are from beautiful British Columbia, Canada and we had quite a daunting task of arranging our wedding in Santorini on Oct 2008 for a party of 20. Thank god we had the Savvas (Helen & Kosta Savva run a Hair & Make up Studio in Santorini - actually they helped much more than that but I will get into that later.Helen and Kosta of Savva International Hair & Make up in Santorini are Australian, and was originally the only reason why Carol decided to hire their services as we had quite a few guests who wanted hair and make up done and of course Carol my bride wanted the full hair, make up & nails!!! They turned out to be the best money spent for our entire trip. This is because not did they exceed our expectations as Hair & Make up Artists, but Kosta is a Professional Photographer!!! If anyone is planning a wedding or any special event for Santorini, do this. You will understand when you return home and look at the pictures, the truly breathtaking views and regardless of whether you want Photojournalistic, Portraits, and/or Landscapes - you will get them all. Thank you Helen & Kosta Savva for bringing back Santorini to Canada for us.

Dear Helen & Kosta, Thankyou so very much for helping make our wedding day so perfect…We were a little anxious upon our arrival in Santorini, as we weren’t sure of what to expect as our wedding was organised via emails alone. You quickly reassured our doubts, which made our special day so relaxing. I was extremely happy with my hair & make-up, your attention to detail & professionalism is 1st class. Helen you made me feel so beautiful, Thankyou xxx Kosta you are amazing… We are ecstatic with our beautiful photographs. It’s impossible to pick only 1 as our favourite, there all perfect. Many of our friends cant grasp how beautiful Santorini is and have said It looks like we're in a studio... I'm sure you will continue to thrive on the amazing island Santorini, as you are both wonderful at what you do:) Would love to catch up when you return to Australia. We had an awesome time with you on our last night. Will keep in touch… Take Care of both of you!

Love Always & Forever Simone & Ryan (Newcastle/Australia)

 Hi Helen and Kosta, I just wanted to say a big Thank you to both of you for making myself and my two Bridesmaids feel like Princesses for my wedding. I greatly appreciated your skill and expertise. We all enjoyed the Wedding Day and my Husband (seems strange saying that still) thought I looked wonderful.Thank you both once again. Enjoy the sunshine in Santorini, it is bleak and dreary here in Reading.

Lovely meeting you both. Love Mrs Geraldine Golec (Reading / Unite Kingdom)

To our new Santorini friends Helen & Kosta, we are now back in the cold and raining United Kingdom but we have our very happy memories of our wedding in Folegandros.We have logged onto your website when we were in Athens airport and we saw our photographs, they look wonderful. We would like to say again 'Thank You' Helen and Kosta for your help and company too. What we heard about Kosta was right about Kosta's work, his photos look great!! We are looking forward to getting the disc and prints, & one of his 'electronic photo frames'. So once again big hugs and kisses from South London and thanks for a wonderful experience. If you are ever in London and are free please mail us and we would love to meet up with you for a drink and a chat.

Speak to you soon love from Hilary & Andy Ticer ( South London / United Kingdom )

Yassas Helen & Kosta, We just got back from our honeymooon in Italy and wanted to extend our gratitude toward the wonderful work both of you did. I received so many compliments on my hair and makeup. I am hoping somebody over here can do half as good as you both did for our wedding reception. Our wedding ceremony was perfect and the hair stayed perfect all night. We look forward to returning to Santorini one day, I can understand why you both moved there, it was picture perfect.

Hi Helen, thank you soooo much for your help in making my wedding day run smoothly. I was a bit last minute with my hair, almost not booking a hair stylist at all, but I am SO glad I did! You took all the stress out of it. You weren't phased at all when you arrived for my hair trial and I still wasn't exactly sure what style I wanted! You listened to the small amount of ideas I did have, added your own, and I was really really pleased with the result - and also had lots of positive comments on my hair from my guests. As you will know, I have a lot of hair, and so was worried about an 'up do' lasting, but I needn't have worried. Despite it being a beautiful but VERY windy day, my hair stayed put throughout the service, reception, and some crazy dancing :-) I wouldn't hesitate in recommending you to anyone looking for a hairstylist for their wedding day. Along with being very good at your job, your friendly nature fit in perfectly with a bride and bridesmaids excitedly getting ready for the big day. Thank you thank you thank you.
Take care, and maybe see you again in Santorini...we will definitely be coming back! Caroline Collins x (Falmouth / England )

Dear Helen & Kosta, thank you Kosta for styling my hair for the Wedding, he did a fantastic job and everyone was commenting on how amazing my hair looked, he also made me feel very relaxed at a time when it was needed :-) Thank you also for doing my guest's hair....

Dear Helen & Kosta, being in a different country sometimes you don't know what to expect. That's why we were thrilled that we found you for our wedding. Your professionalism, expert knowledge and great personalities helped make it a memorable day. 

Thanks again and all the best Vicky & Peter (Melbourne/ Australia)

Dear Helen & Kosta, thankyou so much for making me look so special on my wedding day, I can't believe that you could transform me so! You immediately knew how to style my hair to suit me & the make-up was fantastic, even staying put while I cried during the ceremony! Our photos are beautiful, so artistic we both keep looking at them through the TV, they are so natural, we love them. Just wish we could do it all again, it seems like a wonderful dream now.

Take care & thanks so much again Carolyn & Rob Stanton (Manchester / United Kingdom)

Helen & Kosta, we hope you are both well and not working too hard?! We are now home and missing Santorini already, it all feels like a dream now :o( thankyou sooo much for working so hard on our wedding day, you did a fantastic job with everyone's hair & makeup and with the photos, you were both a joy to work with. We would recommend you to anyone, & I'm just sad that I won't get a chance to get you to do my hair & makeup again. I really hope we will make it back to Santorini next year, & it would be really lovely to meet you both again. 

Love from Carole & Rich (United Kingdom)

Wow!  What a transformation, I'm absolutely delighted. Helen, you knew exactly what I was wanting . A huge THANKYOU to you for the easy afternoon chit-chatting in front of the caldera - Couldnt have been a better way to start my wedding day..

Helen demonstrated a high degree of professionalism throughout our time together. Her style was very relaxed, which in turn helped me remain calm during a highly stressful time for me. She was unbelievably well prepared during our initial consultation together & offered countless helpful suggestions. Our wedding day session was also a very pleasant experience, she did all the right things at all the right times.The final thought I'd like to leave with anyone considering using Helen is that she truly enjoys what she does, a fact that makes the entire experience enjoyable.

Dear Helen & Kosta,I really wanted to thank you both for making our wedding day absolutely perfect. Helen you did a wonderful job on my hair and nails, made me feel very relaxed and pampered. My hair didn't move an inch, despite the rather breezy conditions and I felt just like a princess for the whole day. Kosta, the photos were amazing, you captured both the wonderful view over the caldera, and our ceremony beautifully. 

Thank you both so very much. Love from Lisa & Rob (Mrs & Mrs McKinnon).

Dear Helen & Kosta,

Thank you a million times for making our wedding so special & beautiful. Everything went so smoothly which was a great relief for us given the stress that weddings bring about. My make up & hair was so natural & beautiful. And our wedding pictures are amazing which is testament to Kosta's artistic talent. They were unpretentious & so natural which made them very special. We will always treasure them. We wish you all the best for the future.

Helen,

Thank you so much for being a part of my wedding day. My hair, make-up & nails all look absolutely perfect & I can't wait to see the look on Michael's face when he sees me. My family was very worried about how I would look since I wasn't getting married at home & arranging everything myself, but they will ooh & aah when they see the pictures. You are so friendly & made the afternoon so relaxing & fun, what more could a bride ask for? I won't need you to help me for any more weddings, but if I did you'd be the 1st person I'd call! Thank you for such a wonderful day & I hope your time in Santorini is everything you've ever wished & more. Allison( Washington DC / USA)

Hello Helen on the 20th July, you found a very teary eyed South African bride in her hotel room, after the hairdresser completely messed up my hair. You were only there for makeup, but within minutes you also had my hair EXACTLY as I had evisioned it! This is to thankyou for contributing to making our day fantastic! You were extremely professional & charming, & I would refer ANYONE who decides on a Santorini wedding!!! Before you left, you asked me to forward some photos, so I've attached a couple.... I trust you are doing well! Kind Regards
