These two lovebirds, whose wedding video has already been featured, chose Greece as their wedding destination creating a beautiful celebration for their love in white and green hues. The reception area was in the heart of nature in a romantic venue full of greenery decorated beautifully with fresh flower arrangements, candles combined with elegant white tableware. The bride was stunning in her flowy wedding dress with lace embroidery. See every special moment of this lovely couple through the following photos captured beautifully by Vasilis Kouroupis!
“Simon was a professional Australian footballer who now runs a local football club. I started working at the football club as a Podiatrist (foot doctor) and to the delight of everyone at the football club we soon became more than friends and have given each other exactly what we needed in life. On a weekend away visiting where Simon was born in a small state of Australia called Tasmania, Simon proposed over a candle lit dinner and we were both so excited to start our lives together and decided to get married in the Peloponese Greece where my grandparents came from.”
“My wedding video not only captured the magnificence of our wedding destination of Monemvasia but also captured all the emotions we had in the day. We had an intimate wedding, and Vasili was amazing in capturing all we felt on the day that people back home feel like they were there just from watching the video . The place, the set-up, the ambience were all so perfect and we feel we can re-live the moments from the video, it is something we will cherish forever!”
“I wanted my Australian guests to experience a traditional Greek wedding as much as possible and my wedding planner Joanna created this perfectly. She incorporated olive branches and white flowers to make it an authentically Greek setting and exemplified the beauty of Monemvasia castle in the background.”
“Having the happiest day of my life! Having my closest family and friends see and share the love my husband and I have in an amazingly surreal beautiful Greek destination and embracing the Greek culture to celebrate the most special time in our lives.”
“I wanted something comfortable and as soon as I tried this dress on I loved it and felt like it was a dress a Greek goddess would wear as it flowed at the bottom, which was perfect for my destination.”
