The whiteness symbolises purity, the hardness of the shell relates to a strong union, the ‘egg’ shape of the favour is seen as a fertility charm and the sweetness is a symbol of a sweet life together.
The above package would normally cost in excess of £2500...... With an opening bid of just £100 the potential is definitely there for some one to enjoy a dream wedding day..... and help a very worthy cause to make a real difference to the lives children and parents who haven’t had the best start in life.

We were only to pleased to be able to help and put together a ‘De Luxe Wedding Package’ to be offered for auction during the fete. The package on offer consisted of our own ‘Wedding Day Essential Package’ and some associated goodies from our long standing partners. They were only to happy to help wherever possible and they certainly did us proud, offering photographic packages, floristry arrangements, a beautiful wedding cake and a number of other elements in order to be able to offer a marvellous auction item for potential Brides and Grooms to bid for.The charity fete and auction went ahead as planned and we are really pleased to be able to say that the ‘Lindos Weddings Package’ on offer proved to be very popular, attracting a flurry of bids before finally being won by one lucky (and very generous) Groom-to-be, accompanied by a very excited Bride-to-be. We were so pleased to hear that the package had sold and were bowled over when we learned just how much the winning bid amounted to. Within a couple of days we had contacted the happy couple and set in motion the first stages of planning their wedding here in Rhodes.
During the summer of 2010 we were contacted by Laurence’s cousin Lisa, who was organising a fund raising event in aid of a foundation set up in honour of her father who had recently fallen victim to cancer and had sadly passed away. Lisa told us how she planned to approach a number of very reputable businesses (Tiffany’s and House of Fraser among others) in order to see if they would be willing to donate prizes to be offered at a charity fete she was busy organising in order to raise funds. Aware that we would be unable to attend in person, Lisa asked us if we would be able to donate something to the list of prizes on offer by way of a contribution.

The success of the auction has now led us to the decision to once again offer a version of it for next year. This time it will be run from here, our own web site and open to all clients wishing to place a bid. This year’s beneficiary will again be the Great Ormond Street Hospital, the world famous children’s hospital based in London. Great Ormond Street was founded in 1852 and is renowned for leading the way in combating many childhood illnesses and helping sick and injured children from all over the world look forward to a brighter future. It also offers comfort and support to parents and families trying to cope with the upset and turmoil of caring for a desperately ill child. We do hope that you agree that it would be worthy cause, certainly deserving of all the help it can get.
The auction will run like this; below you will see details of the auction ‘Package’. These are all the elements included within the package and those upon which you are invited to place a bid. In its current form it will certainly ensure that a wonderful wedding day is enjoyed by all, made even more so in the knowledge that the winning couple have made a tremendously generous donation to such an important cause. The current highest bid is shown, in Pounds Sterling. To make a bid, simply email us with the figure you have in mind, your names and contact details. The highest bid will be posted here on this page, allowing everyone to see the current status of the auction. It’s as simple as that!
THE FINAL HOURS….
The auction will end at 23.59.59 pm on New Years Eve, as shown by the countdown timer. As we do not operate a conventional Auction Site, bids are not automatically updated but need to be shown here after a manual update of this page. As it is impossible to do this on a second-by-second basis, the winning bid will be the the one that offers the largest amount before the end of the auction. So, if you are interested in entering a bid, the easiest way to do so is to email us with the highest figure that you are happy to offer for all that is shown in the auction package. This way, if you are successful you have secured your win with an amount which you are comfortable to pay, and the charity will also receive the maximum amount possible.
Good luck to all those that decide to take part. You have the chance to ensure that your wedding day brings happiness to an even wider circle of people than you may ever have imagined.
