Magical Moments

 

There were so many incredibly magical moments, and I feel I could write endlessly, however, the most memorable were;

When my father came to fetch me (a moment I had dreamed about since being a young girl).

Walking down the aisle to my husband, while a string quartet played, and seeing the look on my husband's face as he saw me for the first time.

Entering the reception and feeling the love and warmth of our closest family and friends as they celebrated the new Mr and Mrs Botoulas.

Last, and definitely not least, as we looked across at each other on the dance floor, as we started our first which then set the tone for the rest of night which was filled with dancing, celebrations and happy faces.

The Honeymoon

 

We started our marriage in the most magical way, an island-hopping adventure through one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Greece was a dream destination for me for many years, and being able to explore the history and culture of Athens, the unimaginable beauty that is Santorini and renting a car on the island of Zakinthos, situated in the incredibly blue Ionian sea, where we pin-pointed beaches, coves and various natural beauties and spent our days exploring every corner of the island.

This was the perfect ending to our wedding build-up.

My Special Day

My dress was made by SewCouture, I always wanted to portray a look of elegance, class and regality while still being fashion-forward.

My make-up was done by Janna Stone, I went for a dramatic bridal look- she is absolutely phenomenal and would recommend her in a heart beat!

My hair was done Fatima Ally Mahmood (Urban Chic), I went for a classic up-style to compliment my dress and make-up

My shoes were from Castello

I also had a personalised garter made by SewCouture ;)
