How I met my man
We had known each other for many years before we got married. We were friends in the beginning but then love came along!
Then, he proposed…
…during a trip of ours in Berlin! We got married on the 2nd of July, in Saint Nikolaos, in Linaria, on the island of Skyros. Giorgos is lucky to come from this beautiful island so we gladly picked it for our wedding!
The magic lies in the details…
The wedding theme was rustic! We combined lace, baby’s-breath and baby red roses for my bridal bouquet, as well as the decoration. The color of the wedding was mainly red: it could be found on my hair, the bridal bouquet, my nails and even the groom’s bow tie!
The nicest detail was definitely the red floral crown on my head and also the gold Thallo piece of jewelry on my arm -it is made of natural flowers dipped in 24K gold!
The best wedding decision I ever made… and also the worst one!
There wasn’t even a single decision I regretted about our wedding. Only good ones!
If I had to choose one favorite moment!
I overenjoyed that I sailed to the church! My arrival was in a caique boat along with the accompaniment of traditional musical instruments, the violin, and the laute!
If I could give some advice to a bride-to-be…
Don’t get stressed on your wedding day… Just be relaxed and enjoy it! Additionally, don’t listen to anyone but yourself and make all the choices you want to go for without any hesitation! This way you will truly shine on that day!
Oh, my wedding dress!
My dress was exactly as I had always dreamt it to be! The designer, VG Zolotas combined the breezy tulle skirt I had in mind with the trims and laces I liked! I chose the Aerlia dress, with an additional tulle skirt on top for the ceremony, which my husband later removed after our first dance, at the reception!
I would like to thank the following people, for turning my dream into a wedding reality…
