Paola Koukourakis

Married on Sep 10, 2016 in Gauteng

My husband and I met many years before our paths that led to the day of my dreams, crossed again...I bumped into him at a time in my life when I had decided to take a sabbatical and travel and work abroad. It was at a party and we both recognised and remembered each other from 16 years before. Just shows when things are just meant to be...the rest is history. The two of us are "two peas in a pod" who compliment each other perfectly.

I loved my wedding was the best day of my life and I wish I could re-live it every time I look at my photos (taken by the brilliant Chris van Dalen) and my video (taken by the outstanding Gina V). Everything went so smoothly thanks to my wonderful family and my two amazing bridesmaids. One of the best parts of my day (besides the two church ceremonies - catholic and orthodox) was having two of my sisters with their families and one bridesmaid and her hubby fly in from overseas to share my very special day with me. My day, to me, would never have been the same without their presence.

I enjoyed and cherished every moment of my day and felt completely surrounded by joy, love, laughter and happiness from family and friends. It is a day that went exactly as how I had dreamed and will never forget.
