Preparing for Baby No 2’s arrival  got me thinking back to other monumental days and most recently our wedding day-we celebrated our 7 year anniversary (6 years since the Greek wedding, 7 since the English) last month and time has truly flown by!

Being the second best day of my life (Oliver, the first), I thought I’d share some of the special moments of our Greek wedding. We had an English wedding the year before in South Africa (a different dress-lucky me)  in a stunning hotel overlooking the sea which was wonderful but as I am originally Greek Cypriot I wanted to marry in the Greek Church- so a year later we did.

My amazing husband took ‘Greek lessons’ and even got christened for me, for the occasion. “It was his lucky day to become a Greek Orthodox” as the movie quote goes and My Big Fat Greek Wedding (without the tack) and sadly the $400 million dollar box film to match-(maybe one day!) can be seen below. Enjoy.

Greek wedding

Rudding Park

My dress was by renowned French Designers Cymbeline so lots of Paris trips for fittings with my Mum which was fab and the wedding reception was at the very beautiful Rudding Park Hotel in Harrogate.  It was a perfect day-so much so I’d love to do it all again. Renewal of wedding vows perhaps?

    It’s our 7th anniversary on Monday! We still haven’t got round to putting up proper photographs, had a beautiful collage frame stored for years but this has inspired me to get them sorted this weekend! Beautiful photographs of what was definitely a beautiful wedding! xxx

    You look absolutely ravishing! And both so happy it actually brings a tear to my eye. You’ve got a keeper on your hands there 😉

    We’re coming up on our 7 year anniversary too in October. Time really flies (although sometimes it feels like 70 years lol) 😉

    I have been following your blog for a while but this is the first time i am commenting. Hi, my name is Eliza and i am a Greek based in London, married to a Brit. I wanted to ask which church did u get married into? V impressed with hubs getting Christened. I might start throwing hints to my hubs. Everything looked absolutely beautiful! Loved your dress and white theme decor. Very classy!
    The idea of renewing vows has been crossing my mind too resently. It is just the small matter of the bill to be sorted out… Ha!
