Picture The Occasion:

Glasses clink, the sound of laughter, a personalised soundtrack plays in the background.
A beautifully laid table awaits its guests and the culinary delights that are being freshly prepared, tantalising and teasing the senses. A veritable feast is served, smiles and more laughter all around and the celebration continues into the early hours, leaving all with sheer happiness, joy and beautiful memories.

BOND VIVEUR™ Bespoke Events specialises in organising intimate events tailored to each clients specific brief. From Birthdays to Anniversaries, Engagements, Weddings, Civil Ceremonies and Renewal of Vows or just to have a party for the sheer enjoyment of it, the approach will always be the same: to ensure that your special event is unique to you and exceeds all of your expectations.

My highly personalised, but relaxed approach, will ensure that every aspect is taken care of, including helping select the perfect venue, organising floral requirements, venue decoration, cocktails, catering, photography and entertainment, all of which are provided by a small handpicked team of suppliers with whom I have a long standing relationship.


Emphasising the importance that each event is totally unique to each of my clients, I do not offer ‘packages’. Costs and fees are based on your specific brief requirements and budget.

The process commences with a complimentary consultancy either in person or via Skype / WhatsApp where we will discuss in brief your general requirements, ideas and dreams after which you will be sent a detailed proposal and outline of the fees.

As a guideline I recommend the following lead times for booking and organising your special event:
Weddings, Civil Ceremony Celebration, Renewal of Vows Ceremony | 18 - 12 months
Celebration Parties (Anniversary, Birthday, Engagement, General) up to 30 Guests | 6 months / up to 100guests | 12 months
It may even be possible to organise your event at short notice - please enquire and we can proceed from there.


Deep blue skies kiss Ionian Blue, crystalline waters,
An infinite horizon,
A setting sun that spreads a glow of eternal warmth and happiness,
A celebration of your joy, your life, your love, your hopes, your dreams…

Please complete the BOOK | ENQUIRE form and I will be more than happy to arrange a complimentary appointment with you.

Dear Rory
Thank you in so many creating our perfect day.

Your hardwork, dedication, attention to detail and working so hard with us to understand exactly what we wanted and delivering the finished product perfectly really needs sharing with others.

Working with you in the many months leading to the big day, sharing ideas and suggestions, seeing plans start falling into place, being introduced to the various providers you made an absolute pleasure of a journey in everyvway. The service, venue, photographer, florist, hairdresser, planning entertainment, cake (made by yourself) catering and refreshments you suggested were all outstanding on the day, in addition to all the minor details that we weren’t even aware of.

You didn’t just focus on the day, you also took time to find out more about the family and guests, worked closely with us on planning the service, venue, in fact there was nothing we suggested that wasn’t achievable and if that was the case you find a way!!!! Nothing was too much work which made working with you so easy and an absolute pleasure.

Suffice to say Rory your passion, hard-work, planning, attention to detail, combined with a touch of brilliance made our special day perfect, it wasn’t ordinary or okay, it was outstanding, amazing, fun, romantic and memorable.

More importantly Rory to make a day that was so special, takes a great deal more than just providing the venue, service, food and entertainment, it requires a great deal of trust, honesty, transparency, dedication, care, time and a strong desire to do your best and this is how you surpassed all out greatest expectation resulting in a day both Phillip, myself, family and friends will remember forever as truly beautiful.

Finally, Rory we would like to extend our heartfelt thanks and say what a pleasure it was to meet the lovely Colm an absolute delight, who listened so patiently then gave invaluable feedback even when work spilled over into your personal time….so much so that we’ve now become good friends, what more could we have wished for …………….

Lots of love and best wishes to you both.
Phillip and Amanda xx

Rosy & Alex - 2013


What can say, A1 wedding planner! I couldn't have done it without you. Simply the best!
Excellent communication in the run up to our wedding and after! See you in June for a cocktail or two xx


Rory took care of EVERYTHING!! Took all the stresses of organising a Wedding away from us the day we arrived on the beautiful island (which happened to be his Birthday!) The day was perfect, couldn't of asked for anything more! :)

Rosy and Alex Chatterton - Sparks
(Gentilini Winery / Villa Vinaria Litoa): August 2013

We recently married on the island of Kefalonia and contracted Rory Bond as our wedding coordinator; without a doubt this was the best decision we made with regard to our wedding plans. Rory was professional, organised and personable. He took every care to make sure we got the wedding of our dreams and (if we do say so ourselves) the day was perfect. Rory even hand made the centrepieces for our reception tables - a task I think very few wedding coordinators would usually tackle! As well as making our 'big day' so special, we also contracted Rory to cater for our wedding party as a pre-wedding celebration at Gentilini winery. The day was a real treat and enjoyed by all involved. Rory created a feast of meze, salads, meats and fish; all lovingly prepared and presented with style. Our pre-wedding soiree guest (a party of 15) were in awe of the quality and quantity of the food we were served for the price paid. Value for money is an understatement! In sum, we would not hesitate to recommend Rory Bond of Bond Viveur to anyone for coordinating their wedding day. Equally, if you fancy a luxurious taste sensation for an intimate or larger gathering then
Rory Bond is your man!

Carole and Michael - Nine Muses, 2013

Hi Rory

Married life going well. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the wedding and we couldn't have wished for anything better all thanks to yourself. Everything from the mandolin player, the set up at the chapel and the fantastic reception at the Nine Muses, where the staff worked very hard and made our day special. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending you to anyone.

Carole and Michael


Rory planned our wedding out in Kefalonia and it was perfect. He organised everything even better than we had imagined and we didn't have to worry about a thing.
We would not hesitate to recommend his services or those of the rest of his 'team' that contributed to our amazing day.
Thanks again Rory
Best wishes
Kristen and Paul
