Having decided to get married abroad, Halkidiki and Sani Resort seemed like the perfect place. Making contact with Sani Resort and their very own wedding coordinator (Anna) and the reservations team we set a date of 11 September 2015, booking for 16 nights. With only myself and my ‘soon to be husband’ travelling to Halkidiki for our wedding we wanted an intimate wedding with holiday/honeymoon as one. We were fortunate enough to be able to meet with Anna in January 2015 when she travelled to the UK on business – on meeting her we knew we had made the right choice. Everything was booked, planned and taken care of for us – we could not have asked for more. Our wedding day was just beautiful, it was everything we had hoped it would be. Anna was attentive, our photographer was relaxed and nothing seemed to be too much trouble, the staff at Sani were just so lovely. On our last day having packed to return home, we went to breakfast – I didn’t feel like eating, I felt choked… I cried I didn’t want to leave this place, a place where we had just spent the most magical time.

Sani is a perfect place for anyone wanting to get married in beautiful surroundings, have first class hospitality, a holiday to remember, a dedicated and wonderfully efficient wedding planner, fantastic food and a day to remember….it certainly ticked all those boxes for us! We took 38 people to Sani which included 16 children ranging from a 6 week old baby to an 8 year old. The build up to the wedding was managed through emails to ‘Anna the planner’ who responded to all our queries and helped us plan the best day of our lives. We chose to get married on Sani Hill and, for us, this was totally the right decision. We felt getting married on a beach could be done anywhere in the world but the setting on the hill, surrounded by views of the sea in all directions was perfect, myself and my dad were taken up the hill by buggy which was a lovely touch! We had a registrar perform the ceremony and my dad read the English translation back to us which was a really lovely touch. After the ceremony we had a drinks reception on the hill then walked the 10 minutes to the Marina where we surprised our guests with an hour long boat trip which was just stunning. We enjoyed an amazing meal at Tomata restaurant at the Marina, where we did the speeches then danced the night away at Mojito Bar. The staff at the kids club took the children off after their meal so we could enjoy some child-free time for the speeches, they arranged a mini disco for them for a very reasonable fee and even sent us videos so we knew what they were up to! The wedding day itself was wonderful and our 9 day stay at Sani was one we will never forget, the service, the food, the setting were all perfect and everyone in our party wants to return, you just have to read the trip advisor reviews to see how much people love the place, it will certainly hold a special place in our hearts forevermore. Every single part of our wedding day was truly exceptional with friends saying it was the best wedding they had been to! If you are thinking about getting married here then do it, you will not regret it!

We held our wedding at the Sani resort in June this year and had the most amazing holiday and wedding, it exceeded our expectations. We can't speak highly enough about the whole resort. The staff, the food, the accommodation, everything was just perfect. You are made to feel very welcome and the resort is pure luxury. If anyone is looking to get married here we would highly recommend holding your special day here. Anna the wedding coordinator is great, made our planning experience stress free, she was always an email away if we had anything we needed to discuss or arrange. Our day was just magical, my dad and I came into the ceremony by boat which was something we had planned from the beginning but kept this a secret from our 32 guests, this was a nice surprise! We held our ceremony at the sea you bar right by the beach, the set up was perfect, the florist who Anna recommended was fantastic, our flowers were so beautiful, this was one thing I was worried about initially because I could only send her a picture of what we wanted, but when I saw them they were just stunning and I had nothing to worry about. The fresh flowers are quite pricey but it was worth paying for. We had photos on the beach then had our wedding breakfast meal at Artemis, again it was out of this world, Nikos the manager was very very professional, so friendly and very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The food was so beautiful, all our guests were very impressed. To finish the evening off we hired the Bousoulas beach bar for our reception/party and we had so much fun!! The whole day was just as we'd planned and so magical. We will most definitely be back to holiday there in the future.

We married at home at the registry office and decided to have a blessing ceremony whilst on holiday with our 6 month old daughter and best friends. We wanted a relaxed day of celebration and this is precisely what the wonderful Anna Wohlfart and the Sani Resort created for us with only one months notice! Everything was organised via emails prior to our holiday and then we met in person when we arrived to ensure all was in order. The day went perfectly from hair and make up to the flowers and photography all within the perfect setting of the Resort and Marina. The hotel even managed to arrange an egg free wedding cake. The support from everyone at the hotel and especially Anna was fantastic.
Jade & Lee 2015, UK
The Sani resort is the most amazing holiday and wedding destination. Our wedding day was perfect and was exactly what we had wished for, thanks to Anna. We can not thank her enough for all her organising and preparation for making our day so special and stress free. After speaking to Anna for the first time, we were automatically put at ease as she made us feel confident about organising our wedding abroad. After lots of information over email we finally got to meet Anna at the London excel wedding show and that's when we realised that what ever we wanted.... Anna made sure we got it! We got married at the sani church which was in the grounds of the sani beach resort, this was brilliant for us as the area was more private. From there we went to the Sea You Bar for drinks and photos, whilst watching the beautiful sunset. Then finally we finished by having our reception at the Byblos restaurant. This was outstanding and the food was fantastic (we definitely recommend). We can honestly say we have never been to a resort that has it ALL!!! The hotel team were all extremely friendly and would do anything for you, especially the restaurant staff, who were so friendly and loved our little boy..... he got a lot of attention. Our whole experience at the Sani Beach was extremely memorable and we can not wait to return!
Helen & Stephen 2014, UK
We have just returned from the most amazing holiday and wedding at the Sani Asterias. It was all that we dreamed it would be (and more!).We wanted a 'low key' wedding (just the three of us) and arranged the wedding via email with the wonderful Anna Wohifart. She was so helpful and friendly and made the whole process stress free! We arranged to meet Anna a few days before the ceremony and she was just lovely. Very organised and friendly and made us feel at ease. Whatever you need - Anna will sort it! Our beautiful ceremony was held at Kassandria town hall and then we returned to the Water Bar for drinks and cake (delicious!). The staff at Asterias were wonderful and made us feel very special.I must mention our photographer Vasilis who was brilliant (Anna arranged photographer) and enabled us to come back home with so many wonderful photographs.Highly recommended! In the afternoon we relaxed on the beautiful beach and then had our wedding dinner at the exquisite Water Restaurant. The food and service here is out of this world! Anna arranged a babysitter for our daughter so we could have some couple time.The setting, service, staff, food....was perfect. We are so glad we decided to get married at Sani. If you are wanting a small wedding like ours, or a lavish wedding with lots of guests, Sani is the perfect setting. Wish we could do it all again!!
Rene & Martin 2014, UK
Sani Resort was the ideal setting for our perfect wedding. After two previous holidays in this beautiful bay, we knew that this would be the only place we wanted for our wedding. Our dream was to have an intimate beach wedding for thirty guests, alongside an unforgettable beach holiday. Anna and her welcoming Greek team made our dream a reality! Our budget was not vast by UK standards, and we managed to have exactly the wedding that we could never have afforded in England. Anna was brilliant and made the whole process seem effortless, she is always at least one step ahead making sure things run smoothly so you have nothing to worry about. Her years of experience as a wedding planner, make her an absolute essential to any couple planning to get married. Whatever size wedding you are planning, whatever your budget, however many (or few) people you are planning your special day for, your wishes and dreams will become a reality through Anna's meticulous planning (even the kids helped out!).Vasilis (photographer) really captured our personalities and responded to our requests with the overall look and feel of the pictures. The ceremony was fantastic and the words, atmosphere and professionalism were heartfelt and genuine. The food at the Sea You Bar and The Ouzerie, were absolutely outstanding, definitely more gourmet than your average wedding menu! Our guests are still recommending their experience at Sani to others, and friends of friends are mentioning it as though they were there with us so we know it was memorable for all! The whole Sani team, were not only efficient and dedicated, but truly sincere and welcoming at every step of our holiday and wedding, Efcharisto!'
Gemma & Danny 2013, UK
When looking for a venue for our wedding the Sani Resort looked, by far, the most beautiful location and had such good reviews we knew this was going to be the perfect place for our special day. We are pleased to say that it did not disappoint and we had such a wonderful day that the whole family thoroughly enjoyed. The wedding planner, Anna was extremely helpful throughout and nothing was too much trouble. We held the ceremony at the sea you bar, the saxophonist Anna recommended was a lovely touch. After the service we had drinks and a buffet on the green. The food was amazing and there was plenty of it. The photographer also had a lot of ideas and our wedding album is full of natural, beautiful pictures of the stunning views. He certainly captured the happy mood of the day. We were delighted with all our beautiful flowers and the wedding cake was just perfect. Any ideas we had were arranged to be exactly how we wanted them, Anna made suggestions that fitted perfectly with our day. The food and the service at the Tomato restaurant where we had our reception was outstanding, we also had a private balcony overlooking the marina where we watched the sun go down. The members of staff throughout the day were always helpful and friendly. The evening do at the Mojito bar was fantastic as it was the perfect place to end the day, in a relaxed atmosphere where we enjoyed a dance and the company of our guests. Our wedding was exactly how we imagined it would be and we are so happy that we chose the Sani Resort. We want to say a big thank you to Anna and the rest of the staff at the Sani Resort for making our wedding day so perfect. We would not change anything about the day and highly recommend anybody to get married there. We are looking forward to returning next year to celebrate our wedding Anniversary.
Rachel & Daryl 2013, UK
We just want to say thank you to Anna for arranging such an amazing day. We were naturally a little concerned about getting married aboard and all the organisation and paperwork involved. Anna very soon put our minds at ease and made the whole situation a pleasure from beginning to end. Nothing was too much trouble, Anna even supported us gaining information when we were looking into bringing a stray puppy home, something she didn’t have to do but did. We had such an amazing day, after choosing to marry next to the beach at the Sani Resort we took a boat trip on the Sani queen and then went back to the Oceana Club Hotel where they had arranged diner on the beach as the sun went down surrounded by candles, it was truly amazing and an experience we will never forget.
Thank you Anna for making our day so special!

After deciding to get married abroad and finding the Sani website we got in contact with Anna Wohlfart. We arranged to meet Anna at a wedding show in Birmingham and talked through the details of the wedding. Thereafter we corresponded with Anna via e-mail and phone to sort out the fine details. She was very helpful at every step of the way and made us feel completely at ease. All we had to do was turn up and have a great time. Anna stayed with us for the whole day to ensure everything ran smoothly. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the staff could not have done more for us if they tried. I’d also like to give a special mention for our wedding photographer Iosifina Svania and her assistant Elli who were with us for the full day. They were professional and caught all of the best moments but at the same time they were friendly and we had a great time with them.
We got married on top of Sani Hill overlooking the Aegean Sea. It was a beautiful location. Our daughter got to read the English translation of our vows alongside the registrar which was a nice touch and made it all the more personal for us. There was a sound system set up at the top of the hill playing our music and a bar set up with ice cold beer and wine. The wedding meal at Psaroyannos was amazing. They had no problem catering for all of our guests needs. We went for some traditional Greek dishes which were delicious. They also catered for the children by supplying a choice on the day. There was plenty of food to go round. We had drinks in the evening at Mojito bar until the early hours. The staff there were amazing and became part of the wedding party joining in with both Greek and Scottish dances.
On top of the wedding the resort was lovely. The food at the resort was brilliant and everyone was friendly. We had children of varying ages with us from 1 up to 13 and there was plenty to keep them occupied throughout the day. They enjoyed the kids club, swimming sports activities, evening shows and disco’s. We will definitely be back.
Agata & Sean 2013, UK
Having spent a week on holiday at Sani with our two children we believed the resort would be the ideal place to get married. Our thoughts were confirmed when we returned six months later and met with Anna Wolfhart to discuss all possibilities. Given the amount of options and locations within Sani resort Anna's help and advice was invaluable. One year later and we found ourselves enjoying what was not only the perfect wedding day but an unforgettable holiday with thirty of our closest friends and family, all of whom were amazed by the standard of the resort and the staff that make the experience what it is; a truly wonderful place. Our most sincere thanks go to Anna for organising every detail with not only professionalism but also a unique personal touch. We would also like to thank all the Sani staff that made our wedding day and indeed the rest of our stay at the resort such a memorable occasion. A special thank you must also go to the staff at Sani Club Ouzerie who provided exceptional food, service and atmosphere for our wedding party and to the staff at Dunes bar for the great after party! In addition to the memories we brought back with us we also have over one thousand superb professional photographs provided by Vasilis.
Thank you Sani, no doubt we will be returning again soon.
Sam & James 2013, Scotland
We are very laid back people and we wanted the same vibe for our nuptials. Choosing to go away just the 3 of us , we wanted a very low key, simple and relaxed day and this is precisely what the wonderful Anna Wohlfart created for us. Everything was organised via emails prior to our actual holiday and we met each other in person when we arrived. We had a lovely holiday, our son is desperate to go back and now we are really just trying to figure out when we can return. Our wedding was just as we had hoped and more.
Thanks Anna for taking good care of us….
Jan & Chris 2013, UK
We recently decided to get married at the Sani Resort in Halkidiki and Anna Wohlfart introduced herself as our Wedding Manager. Anna was very helpful right the way through the planning process and provided invaluable assistance on matters such as gathering together all the necessary documents required to get married in Greece and organising the registrar and photographer (who took some fantastic photos!!!). Once in the resort, Anna was fantastic in ensuring that everything was in place for the big day and even offered to act as a witness which we gratefully accepted. The day itself ran extremely smoothly and this was all down to Anna's hard work and friendly approach. She ensured that it was truly a day to remember and we would wholeheartedly recommend Anna and the resort in general for anyone thinking of getting married at the Sani.
Carly & Andy 2012, UK
"We chose Sani Beach Resort for our wedding because of it's stunning location, amazing hotels, first class customer service and all round family friendliness. After staying at Sani Beach in 2011 we had made our mind up that we would return in 2012 to have our wedding! Arranging the wedding could not have been any easier thanks to Anna the wedding planner based in the resort.
We took 55 guests with us to Sani, and we wanted to treat them to an amazing wedding. We had the Ceremony at Sea You Bar, with drinks after and photo's on the green, the photo's look absolutely stunning. We then walked around the marina to Artemis for our meal. We sat outside and enjoyed an amazing meal as the sun went down. All of our guests commented on how good the food was, and the restaurant manager sent out extra's, the Mojito Jellies were a great little surprise. There were lots of little touches that we hadn't even asked for and everything was executed to perfection! After the meal we walked to Bousoulas beach bar, we had this to ourselves from 9pm to 3am, and we had the best party! We were dancing with our guests right up until 3 in the morning! The setting right on the beach at Bousoulas is spectacular. We have some great photo's taken from here too.
We had the most amazing wedding day and can definitely say that it was the best day of our lives! We were very glad to here that most of our guests said that it was the best wedding that they had ever been to! It is thanks to Anna and all the dedicated staff at Sani Beach, you all worked so hard to ensure the day was absolutely perfect!
We stayed on for a week after our wedding and were treated like VIP guests - Bottles of champagne in our room, We had a private Candlelit dinner at the marina.
Amazing Day! Stunning Location! Everything done to Perfection! Simply the best Wedding! Thank you Sani....."

We booked our holiday and Wedding at Sani Resort after being recommended by a friend in the travel industry. On the months leading up to our trip, we learnt of several other people we knew who had been to Sani and couldn’t speak more highly of it. As soon as we arrived in the reception of Sani Club we were completely in awe of the place! It was stunning and coupled with the friendly and helpful manner of the staff, we knew we were going to have the holiday of a lifetime. During the course of the next week we were joined by a total of 16 other members of our family and close friends who were equally impressed with the whole Sani experience. We were married at Hanioti Town Hall a week and a half into our holiday and had our wedding breakfast at ‘The Ouzerie’, overlooking the beautiful Aegean sea, with a totally Greek feel, followed by drinks and live music at the serene ‘Dunes Bar’. We are both extremely grateful to Anna, Sani’s Wedding Coordinator, who was so very helpful when it came to arranging all the finer details and nothing seemed too much trouble. She not only gave her time to meet with us to find out how we wanted our day to evolve but she introduced us to the Manager of the Ouzerie, Polinikis, who was exceptionally helpful and, together, they made sure all our needs were taken care of and our wedding day completely surpassed our expectations! We can honestly say that during our entire stay at Sani Club we were made to feel very special and would also like to extend our thanks to Vangelis in Guest Relations, along with his colleagues. We cannot recommend Sani Resort highly enough and not only ourselves, but everybody else in our party cannot wait to return! We love Sani!

We have just returned from 10 days in the sani beach hotel in halkadiki, After reading all the testimonials and trip adviser we decided in January this year to book this stunning location for our wedding on 17th sept 2011, and how glad are we that we did. We were blown away from start to finish, the hotel is right on the beach which is lovely, and it’s as if you’re in a tropical resort rather than Greece. The staff were friendly and really polite, if that’s not enough just a 5 min walk and you are in a luxury private marina surrounded by restaurants- just amazing. Everything has been organised through e mail and obviously you would think there may have been some slight hitches, but no everything was perfect and this is only down to sani’s very own wedding co-ordinator Anna wholfart. She has been amazing from the beginning right up to our last day at the resort, we cannot thank her enough she truly made everything so easy and run so smoothly she is just great. We hired out “Sunday” the cruiser to have our vows read out at sea and wow how good was that-again Anna was there at our side it was so special- we carried out in the sea you bar after for more photographs and drinks, and then finally we had our wedding meal for 16 people in the tomata restaurant, we hired a private balcony looking out over the marina and this was perfect too. We have to say that the tomata restaurant is definitely our favourite, the food and service was totally outstanding, we cannot recommend this enough. If you are thinking of the sani resort for your special day then this place is where you can really have your dreams come true!
Emma & Ian 2011, UK
From the moment we booked our holiday at Sani we knew we had made the right choice. The hotel itself looked fantastic with everything we could possibly need for a fabulous 2 week holiday and wedding of our dreams. We were a little concerned about how the wedding would be organised but we needn’t have worried. An initial email to Anna Wohlfart and we had all of the answers we needed, with a variety of options on how we could make our special day unique and the day we both wanted. We chose the time and date we would get married and all the finer details of what we would do that day. We chose to get married without friends and family, Anna arranged witnesses, hairdresser, photographer, cake and the best table in the house for our evening meal at Macaroni. A private 2 hour cruise on the Sani Queen gave us breath taking views of Halkidiki while we sipped champagne to toast our marriage. Our friends are amazed by the photos we have returned home with – they don’t look real! I would recommend the Sani resort for small and large weddings, the staff are wonderful. I am looking forward to returning on our anniversary next year. Special thanks also to Dirk from guest relations for his additional special touches to our day.
Catherine & Stephen 2011, UK
After 8 years of being engaged and following the birth of our daughter we decided to get married abroad. We had a small wedding party of 12 and we wanted a low key, simple and very chilled out wedding combined with a lovely first family holiday in a beautiful location and Sani Resort fit our requirements exactly. Our day was very much centred around our 15 month old daughter and we wanted to ensure she was happy and as such timed the day around her. We got married at Kassandra Town Hall and followed it by a drinks reception at the Sea You bar on the Marina, and then onto Tomata for our private meal (food was amazing!) upstairs overlooking the marina. We ended the day at the cocktail bar! Anna was fantastic and helped us from the start in dealing with our queries very early on and assisting with documentation prior to arriving in Greece. She arranged everything for us including the photographer, the cake, the drinks reception and taxis. She was an absolute star and was with us for the majority of the wedding day and also translated our vows for us. Her excellent organisation skills and warm, friendly nature ensured our day went according to plan and this helped us relax and have our perfect day! We couldn’t have done it without her! All in all a fantastic holiday and a perfect wedding. The memories will last a lifetime. We will be back....!
Amanda & Chris 2011, UK
I hadn’t thought about using a Wedding planner as such, but after a few emails with Anna it was clear I needed her in my life! The detail and organisation in putting a Wedding together can be stressful but Anna makes sure you don’t have any of that. From the day I first got in contact, Anna answered all my questions and made suggestions for things we hadn’t thought of. It is quite difficult to imagine what your Wedding will be like when you haven’t visited the place, so you take a gamble when booking overseas. It really helped when Anna asked if we would like to meet her at the Wedding Show in Earl’s Court. It was definitely worth the trip as Anna had piles of books and photos from previous weddings to show us and she quickly picked up what we liked and pretty much put our Wedding together on the spot. The best part about Anna’s approach with you, is she quietly observes your needs and comes up with suggestions she knows you will enjoy and probably hadn’t thought of, then makes it seem so simple to put together that nothing is too much trouble. When we arrived in Sani Resort Anna took around all the venues we were to attend on the day and we met with the Managers of the bar and restaurants to finalise details, as well as the Captain of the boat we were getting married on. It was so much fun and we were treated so well by everyone. It was quite apparent that Anna has a lot of respect from these people she works along side and they were always so pleased to see her. As well as ensuring all your dreams come true on the day, Anna arranged extra little surprises that really made me feel special, I can’t say what or it will blow her cover! Needless to say Anna made me feel like I was the only Bride she had to deal with. Very professional and such a pleasure to be with. What more do you need on your special day. We wouldn’t have had such a memorable day without her and I certainly wouldn’t recommend arranging a Wedding without her, even if you are fluent in Greek!
Panos & Konstantina 2010, Greece
It was August 2003 when we first met in Bousoulas Bar in Sani Resort. There was a party going on….
It was August 2010 when we got married and the party was still going on….for us at this time!
We decided to get married in Sani Resort since most of our summer memories were from this place. Adding to the memories the best wedding coordinator, the adorable Anna, the extraordinary scenery and the amazing sunset in Bousoulas Bar, left us with no other choice!!
We planed our wedding with Anna, who help us a lot arranging all the details and we had the best time of our lives, dancing, singing and having fun for the whole night. The night was amazing, the sea was calm and the mood was up! A night to remember
