Lila was born and raised in the coastal Greek town of Volos. Having been surrounded by the beautiful views of Pelion and the Sporades complex of islands, as well as the tourism they attracted, she decided at a very young age to turn the greek hospitality into her profession. Following that decision she graduated university in 2013 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Hotel and Tourism Management. She had already started her career in the industry in 2007 by working in hotels and event venues as a member of the front of house team.
In 2013 she moved to Britain where she carried on working for some of the biggest event venues and hospitality companies in the country, this time in senior and management roles. In late 2018, and after she had collected the necessary experience, knowledge, skills and studies, Lila founded CL Events and Weddings. Her love for celebrations, along with her strong organisational skills, drove her to build a business dedicated to creating happy memories and special days for all.
With the support of her colleague, brother and also hospitality professional Christos and along with a unique team of event experts she designs, plans and coordinates events in England, Greece and Italy.
Her big loves are her family, including two dogs, books, animals, the environment and of course CL Events and Wedding. As a candidate for a Master’s Degree in Natural Resources Management, she always tries to ensure that her work is done with respect for the environment and all of our surroundings. She believes in kindness, compassion and in always standing in one’s shoes in order to understand them.
When planning your event in either the UK, Greece or Italy our aim is to deliver the best and most memorable experience for you and your guests. Whether it is a wedding, birthday party or any other celebration you are looking to host, our meticulous attention to detail, professional and friendly service and knowledge along with years of experience in the industry, will allow you to enjoy the process and the exciting build up to your special day, stress free.
Our vision and philosophy is that everyone deserves a celebration of their special occasion exactly the way they imagine it. That is why we choose to not work with packages, as we do not believe in putting price tags on peoples special days. Instead, all of our events are designed individually and according to our clients’ needs and budgets.
We take great pride in our list of nominated suppliers and venues across the 3 countries; we always use it to enhance our clients’ inspiration and add variety to their choices. After a face to face or online consultation, which allows us to better understand your event and your needs and also to get to know you, we start by suggesting ideal locations and venues, unless these are already chosen. From there the designing process will begin, always keeping your budget in mind whilst negotiating with all third parties involved, in order to achieve the original spend.
On the day of the event, we are there from start to finish to ensure that everything runs smoothly and all suppliers involved are coordinated according to plans and timetables, for your big day to be flawless.
