Quoting Grey’s Anatomy, Katerina is my person. I met her 15 years ago when we where both teenagers trying to figure life out. With long blonde hair and the warmest eyes, she got straight into my heart. And she staid there through our University years in Athens (where we were spending our time discovering ourselves by having deep conversations and getting tipsy in little taverns singing our way back home) up until now, that we are trying to work out how to…adult.
When Katerina found love, her One, I was over the moon. And when she asked me to be her maid of honour (koubara in Greek) and be part of one of the biggest days in her life well…I cried! Although living in different countries, we spent the months before the wedding talking and messaging on a daily basis so I couldn’t wait for the wedding day to finally come!
The wedding took place at Meganisi, a beautiful little island in the Ionian Sea. We all traveled there the day before the wedding and we spent our time at the beach up until a few hours before the ceremony!
The Bride and Groom were the most gorgeous couple you will ever see, with the bride looking like a magical fairy in her dress-let me take a moment to take my hat out to her for doing her hair and make-up on her own!!!-and the groom looking very handsome in a blue suit that matched his eyes. The ceremony was very intimate and took place at a tiny little church by the sea. I was so stressed about my role in exchanging the rings but fortunately everything went smoothly!
The wedding party was held at the Esperides Resort Hotel , a beautiful venue with a breathtaking view that welcomed us with the most gorgeous sunset. We staid there until the first hours of the next day dancing in the rhythm of the newly-weds love.
Choosing an outfit for this wedding was quite the challenge as I wanted something very special that would at the same time suit the laid back style of an island wedding. Eventually, I went for a coral gown in Grecian style from Little Mistress.
As we were in a small island, I had to do my own make up and I went for a bronze/coral look to suit the dress. I used some of my favourite make up products to create it including:
- Benefit Cosmetics POREfessional face primer
- Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation
- Benefit Cosmetics Sun Beam highlighter
- Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Bronzer
- NARS blush in Super Orgasm
- Sleek MakeUp A Midsummer’s Dream Cheek and Eye Palette
- Chanel Rouge Coco lipstick in Roussy
- Laura Mercier Lip Glace lip gloss in Bare Baby
