“We got married in summer in Ithaki, Greece. We met at Polis beach in Ithaki one summer when we were much younger. Jonathon lived in Australia and Aliki lived in London, so we were in a long-distance relationship for 3 years until Jonathon moved to London. We lived in Hammersmith together and one evening Jonathon went down on one knee and proposed on Hammersmith Bridge. My wedding dress was plain, with a low back and tight-fitting silhouette with a long tail. Some people described it as an ‘Audrey Hepburn’ style dress”, Aliki shared with us.
“We hired Vicky Bekiaridou for our wedding who were amazing. We loved the party at the reception as we were really relaxed and genuinely had the best time. Due to COVID, our wedding ended up being smaller than originally planned. We wanted a really simple wedding with boho-chic style. Our flowers included olive branch, eucalyptus, white roses and baby’s breath. We also wanted a lot of rustic looking decorations. This included empty gin bottles with lights, fairy lights, candles and wooden place mats everywhere. We loved our decorations as it made it look like a fairytale and it was really magical. We enjoyed the party too as everyone felt so relaxed and had such a good time!”
Bride’s advice: “Think about the theme and decorations you want from an early stage as you can start making your own decorations for a cheaper price. It’s also really fun to make your own decorations. Organization is key!”
