Kea - Greece Island wedding

Feb 14, 2017

      Alex and Julien wedding in Kea island Greece June 4th 2016 

Alex and Julien met at the high school. One of Alex friends wanted to meet Julien's friend while in high school. So Alex and her friend arranged a party, the outcome is that they have never been together but they did!!!
Alex and Julien engaged in a beautiful weekend away on the Atlantic Coast. Julien wanted to make me a surprise to Alex. They   walked on the beach at sunset time and he kneel down and asked Alex to Marry him. Alex and Julien realized that what was happening to them was a real and rare love, they love that comes and sparkles for ever , when they realized that they could no longer picture their lives without each other.

Julien and Alex love travelling together. So they wanted to celebrate their  wedding  abroad duri We dreamed of a wedding ceremony on a Greek  island, near the beach. Our wedding ceremony took place in the Cyclades, in Greece, in Kea Island, in the local town hall.
They wanted a destination wedding with family and close friends. The ride with her  father to the town hall is a fabulous memory. The  capital of Kea island Ioulida is a typical Greek island center, with narrow streets, white walls, and bougainvillea.
After the civil wedding ceremony, they all went to take pictures on the beach and next to some ruins. The scenery was gorgeous, nostalgic and different
After the photography they all came back to Aegis hotel and at the roof top they exchanged vos at the sunset overlooking the sea, in front of all the guests .and that was the most emotional moment of the wedding day.
The couple wanted for their wedding an intimate, beautiful, romantic private place. Kea island is and ideal place for this and Aegis hotel sunset views are just amazing. When the couple went to visit the place , they realized immediately that was the place for their  wedding.

Alex and Julien  found Fotini our photographer by searching in the  Internet. They saw pictures from previous weddings they immediately liked Fotini’s work.  During the wedding day in Kea, she was discreet, and pick every moment. She’s so lovely the bride said.

For this Kea civil  wedding the theme was off white, pink and touches of gold  in order to create  a romantic ambience  Alex had 3 bridesmaids, her  best friends and Alex gave them the colour theme and they have chosen dresses that they suited them most. The have chosen bush color dresses. Julien has 2 groomsmen and they wore blush bow ties
One of Julien’s friend  wife did Alex's   make-up. And the bride said - She knows me well, and I knew it would be perfect for me. I wanted something fresh and natural. For the hair, I wanted also something natural, some curl on my hair and a white floral crown.
The bride said about her wedding dress
My dress is designed by Rosa Clara ... and me!
At first, it was not the kind of dress I wanted, but after several trials, I was sure of my choice: a strapless heart, a simple lace, tulle belt and tulle.
When I saw the model on the internet, I immediately loved the tissue, but there was a ramp. A seamstress has touched all the dress to make the dress of my dreams.

The exchange of vows at the sunset was the most emotional moment of the wedding  day in Kea . But, we enjoyed all day.#We really had a dream wedding abroad with Marryme in Greece# the couple said
The  wedding cake came from Athens as in the island there is no pastry shop which could do the wedding cake the couple  liked . We had a two tier wedding cake with white frosting and fresh flowers. The flavour was  vanilla and chocolate and it was really a very tasty and delicious wedding cake.
For their wedding flowers the couple has chosen off white and pink to be the wedding theme. Peonia was a must for the bride for her bouquet and the florist created a wonderful romantic theme with the center pieces ,vases and the gold glitter decoration.
The couple  for the first dance had the song Fly me to the Moon  by Frank Sinatra. They  find this very romantic music, and they  were delighted to dance a foxtrot for their  first dance.

And now few words about Marryme in Greece our wedding planner for our destination wedding in Kea island Cyclades Greece
Marryme in Greece helped us a lot. As we are not living in Greece, Olympia  arranged nearly everything for us. A  lot of help with the paper work and the legal part, flowers, liaise with the hotel, hair  and she arranged the rest of the suppliers. She was there any time we need it , and organized things on our behalf. She kept us on truck with times and .things need it to be done Our wedding planner found all the other providers and organize things with them. The big day, we hadn’t to worry about anything, just enjoy this unique moment. Olympia and Elena took care of everything.
And everything was perfect…!!!! The bride said
