Maria + Yiannis

How did you meet?

After many years a decided to change jobs, so I changed my morning habits. We met at the same time, every morning for months at the coffee shop.

How did you know he was the one?

I knew because everything, even the every day life was done naturally without any effort.

What are your three favourite attributes of your partner?

Οf course he is gorgeous! But also he is caring, protective and expresses his feelings.

Who proposed and how?

He proposed me last year during our summer vacation in Cyclades. We were in our favorite island in Schinoussa and he decide to cruise to Sikinos Island and propose by the sunset in a traditional cozy winery, 400 meters above sea level.

Where did you fall in love with your dress and why?

On September I saw a post of Georgie dress in Instagram and I kept a screenshot.  At the end of the year I was looking at the website for a dress. I wanted something more minimal as we had plans to arrange the ceremony & event in Schinousa Island. So in March I decided to arrange a long weekend and visit the boutique in London.

Unfortunately, due to pandemic I had to change our schedule. We were in a lock down for approximately three months.And then one day my  beloved partner gave me the idea to buy the dress through the website  as we have already decided that even with less guests or even without wedding party we will get married.

At this point I want to thank from my heart Tove & Christina for the amazing help & support. The service was excellent, the communication was absolutely perfect and I have no doubt to proceed with the order even I had never try the dress.

What was the best moment for you at the wedding?

As I am looking through the photos I realize it was several moments. Yiannis and I decided to get ready together. We had an amazing time, it was relaxed and funny. The priest is a friend of mine, so during the ceremony he gave an amazing emotional speech.

What surprised you most at or about your wedding?

A moment that surprised us was our “Italian way” wedding cake. A live show from pastry chefs in front of the guests with mascarpone cream and red fruits under the sound of classic song “Funiculi Funicula”

What advice would you tell other brides?

Always look forward and adapt to situations without losing the meaning.
