I met my friend Sissy when I first came to the U.K. to do my Masters degree and we instantly bonded for life. Sissy, our friend Evgenia and I were inseparable. We went everywhere together, did everything together and used to make each other laugh all day-every day. The time I spent with them will always stay in my mind as one of the happiest periods of my life. So from early on, we knew that when the time came for Sissy’s wedding, we would be her maids of honour or what in Greek we call koubares.
That time was the 22nd of July 2017 and it’s a day I will remember forever. My friendship with Sissy is a very special one. She’s my sister from another mister; I’ve never met another person whose psyche is so similar to mine and we are connected on a very deep level. Being by her side on her big day was very special to me.
Aggelos and Sissy are one of these couples that radiate love without having to show it off with bold statements. The way they make each other laugh, look at each other and interact in their everyday life shows how solid and strong the love they share is. Their wedding day was no different. Calm and relaxed, they celebrated their love in the most beautiful location offering all their guests a beautiful day to remember.
Sissy has an internal elegance which was prominent on her wedding dress. The dress was custom-made, embellished with romantic lace details and very stylish. Sissy looked like a blonde, Greek goddess in it and her beauty brought tears to my eyes.
The wedding took place at the Greek island of Lemnos where the groom’s family is from and which made the most scenic location for this beautiful wedding.
The ceremony was in the most gorgeous little church located just over a golden sandy beach. True to the spirit of an island wedding, Sissy, her family, her flower girls and us-her bridesmaids-arrived to the ceremony by a beautiful little boat.
I will never forget Sissy tearing up when she saw Aggelos waiting for her at at beach. It was the face of true, deep love.
The ceremony was beautiful and relaxed, it involved loads of laughter and loads and loads of happiness.
The place was decorated according to Sissy’s exceptional taste and guidance. If anyone asked what my dream wedding would look like this would be it. Every little detail was looked after and the decor was that of a romantic summer fairytale and a certain Pinterest hit!
After the ceremony, the wedding party continued at a beautiful beach bar where we spent the night dancing until dawn. I wish that everyday in Sissy’s and Aggelos’ life is as sweet as their wedding day and I’m so honoured to have been part of their happiness.
