This is seriously, a dream come true for me.
Why Greece? Some time at the start of our relationship we were talking about the places we would love to go some day and Santorini came up. Shortly after, LF gave me a framed jigsaw of Mickey and Minnie in Santorini and we kinda agreed that Santorini was going to be our honeymoon destination.
So when LF proposed in December last year (one day before the said doomsday – how romantic), I excitedly started to for plan our honeymoon, not wedding. Hahaha. Since we were hoping to have a small ceremony and were already set on traveling to Greece, holding our wedding ceremony in Santorini was an easy decision to make (plus there was a sale going on at Emirates!).
Our ceremony was held at (the courtyard) by the Chapel of Saint Irini overlooking the gorgeous Aegean Sea. In all my excitement, I actually did not notice the chapel on that day itself.
Our perfect wedding get up aka #OOTD (HA), not one we had planned for but through a series of (extremely) fortunate events. My dress and LF’s shirt was bought in Santorini (the white house), flowers picked from the backyard and bundled together by my parents, hat from Kamari and the veil handmade by the sweetest friend. :D
Truly a day in white!
The ceremony was conducted in both Greek and English.
Exchanging of rings. As you can tell, I was extremely happy. Hahahaha.
You may now kiss the bride, if she manages to stop smiling. :P
Signing of the papers. No turning back now as the pirate ship has left the dock and thus the victory sign. :P
A shot with our guests and a toast to the newlyweds. Hurhur.
Ended the ceremony with a wedding lunch at Pyrgos where we did a second walk in. Pretty much like the Chinese weddings in Singapore where the couple would do a second walk in with a change of clothes, we did ours with a change of head piece (for me).
It was truly an amazing day for me, having my dream come true, everything falling into place perfectly, the gorgeous set up, having my family with me and most importantly, marrying my soulmate. I was actually tearing and mumbling to LF about how perfect everything was as we marched in to a song I can’t recall now. :)
On a side note, we hired a wedding photographer whom covered the ceremony plus an hour photoshoot at Oia, so photos in this post are from our official photographer. Excluding the one we engaged, we actually had 6 photographers – our guests. All of whom were so busy snapping that only our wedding coordinator clapped when we marched in. That said, I very much prefer the photographs to the sound of clapping. :P
And so, WE ARE MARRIED!
But at the beginning of creation God made them male and female.
For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one.
Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.
