“We met in France and the proposal took place in 2 places (since we are both half Greek and I didn’t say yes straight away) once on the Art bridge in Paris and the second time in front of the acropolis in Athens when I said yes. The proposal was done on the day of new year’s eve after the firework on the Acropolis that we could see from our hotel in Athens”, the bride shared with us.
“I had an idea of a dress I had seen online which was like a Greek goddess. I found a French designer Veronika Jeanvie who works for Paco Rabanne hired a lady specialized in embroideries to sew all pearls on my caraco that was on top of a light white to fit with Greek summer heat. It needed to be classy, original, combine Greek style of the goddess and French elegance and purity.”
“The ceremony took place in Symi island where my father is from with all my Greek family. I picked this place because it was a dream come true for me a dream I had had since I was a little girl since it was my favourite beach in the whole world and I used to swim there as a child…”

“Our wedding was over 3 days! It is difficult to choose the best moment of my wedding but we loved the round the island tour with our friends for the fun, dancing traditional dances for the bed, going down 340 steps of kali strata with my father and family/friends, the wedding ceremony with our unique pope on the island and the fireworks thrown over the sea!”

Advice to a bride that is planning her wedding now: “If she gets married on a Greek island, despite the fact she speaks Greek, she must get a wedding planner as we couldn’t have made it without Georgia for cultural and organizational concerns.”
