The bride was so happy, wearing a romantic wedding dress by Vera Wang with long veil lace. We are sure this summer wedding in Corfu has all of the details you love about a romantic wedding. Through the photos below you can enjoy every special moment of that day!
From the bride: «We got married in summer in Messonghi area in Corfu island.. We met in England through knowing the same group of friends and shared lots of common interests. Cars, food and music to name a few. Also, lots of nights out and fun adventures and memorable holidays. Hideout festival in Croatia being one of those, over the years».
«My husband proposed to me in Corfu in a villa a two-minute drive from the Courti estate, he managed to get both sides of our immediate family all to be there on this holiday staying at the villa together. After a couple of magical days eating; sunbathing and relaxing, loving every second of the Corfu lifestyle. He told the whole family unknowingly to me to go up to the top balcony for the view during sunset hour. Then took me up there and in front of everyone he got down on one knee and proposed! It was the most amazing moment of my life so far and having all our family to share that special moment was amazing»!
«As I never had a wedding planner, I sourced myself every detail. It made everything exactly as I wanted. The decoration theme that I opted for was a color scheme that complemented the Courti estate. We stayed at the Courti Estate a couple of times before the wedding and loved everything about it. Chryssa and her team went above and beyond to help with everything from the moment we first met and vied it, such a beautiful venue! So, I felt the flowers and colors should be whites and greens and some pastel colors. Similar tones to the Courti Estate. I had roses, hydrangeas, olive branches and a mix of green foliage for my flowers. We had four pillars filled with flowers that we could move around from the ceremony to the reception and the tables where all decorated with bouquets for dinner. Bridesmaids had flowers and so did both mother in laws on their wrists and the grooms button holes. The flowers were done by Rammos florists they were brilliant throughout the whole wedding journey! The scent of the flowers filled the whole Courti Estate and gave it that fairytale essence I had dreamt off. The ceremony was held in the courtyard of the Courti Estate with the back drop being the old chapel that had so much character and beauty. We opted to have the bridesmaids and the groomsmen stand either side of us for the ceremony. It felt so special and magical to have all our friends and family with us in Corfu where I grew up for our wedding day. We felt so lucky and honored that everyone had travelled from αbroad to be there for us and share our special day. My favorite part of the reception was the first dance we started off with a slow version of “Ready for your love” by gorgon city and MNEK. Then it was remixed into the dance version and everyone joined us on the dance floor and had the most amazing dance with all the club lighting that had been set up and sound system sounded amazing! Our wedding favors were oil bottles with extra virgin olive oil from the Courti Estate . That had our wax seal on them. Best oil ever!»
«My favorite moment: Walking out down the aisle with my brother and step dad handing me over to my dad. Then looking up and seeing all our guests and my husband to be for the first time looking at me in my dress. I can still remember he’s face and he said wow! Once he saw me, he looked incredible in he’s Diverso suit, this was the first time either of us had seen each other in our wedding outfits».
«My dress was by Vera Wang; it was the first dress I tried on with my mum and mother-in-law and they both said it was the one! I needed something that was light and airy so as not to be too hot and where the dress was made up of a satin bodice and tulle bottom that I could move around in it easily and enjoy the day. My dress reminded me of the waves of Corfu the ruffles, where all wild and beautiful and it was the perfect match for my personality and I felt like a princess in it»!
«I would recommend mood boards for color schemes and styles making sure everything flows and matches. And taking the time out before the wedding to fly to Corfu on numerous trips meeting all of the contractors and going through finer details meticulously with each and everyone. And on the day timing is crucial for everything! Have a time schedule printed off for everyone so that everyone knows at each point where to be! The more effort you put into the planning the better the wedding day will be with less stress and pure enjoyment and happiness on the day! From the moment I woke up on my weeding day it felt like a fairytale!»
