How did you meet your spouse?

We met through some mutual friends.

Tell us about your proposal

I was sitting at home in my warm pajamas because it was a cold winters day, binge watching my favourite show the Real Housewives series. My partner came home from work looking really excited. I couldn’t understand why it was just a typical cold winter day for me. He asked me to stand because he wanted to ask me something. (My initial thought was he was acting strange). So I stood up looking like I just got out of bed and he dropped to one knee and chanted ‘Let’s get married!’ In total shock I started crying! ‘Will you be my wife?” I said yes!


Tell us about your wedding dress. How was your experience when you were searching for "The One"?

I had a few styles on Pinterest which I had in mind. The dress that I purchased was completely different. At first I selected a few different styles, but then my stylist Irena bought me ‘the one’ which I never thought I could wear. It was the dress of my dreams. I was so happy.


Describe a favourite highlight or two from your wedding day.

We loved the whole day! One of my favourite highlights was the scenery, the Greek Islands in the background, and being photographed in my beautiful gown like a celebrity with my handsome husband, looking into each others eyes. It was like being in a dream and we didn’t want the day to end. I cannot put into words how stunning sunset was!


Do you have any advice for couples currently planning their wedding?

Definitely plan well for the day, but remember to stop and be present in the moment and enjoy your day with the love of your life. This is your special day together!
