Today we're sharing the gorgeous pictures and love story of our romantic princess bride Christina and her beau Jonny. Christina was one of the our very funny brides who came and found her dress and accessories with us. She was a refered bride and a virgin bride (First time shopping) the moment she walked in the boutique she announced "I am going to find my dress here". She fell hard for a trunkshow Jim Hjelm by Hayley Paige ball gown that had Christina's fun personalty written all over it...with the magic touch of a few custom modifications...Voila! It was perfect! And the rest as we like to say is wedding history. It was an absolute pleasure to have worked with you. Thank you! Congratulations again to you both! Xoxo MCB
Please enjoy this beautiful overview of her wedding below in her own words...Thank you Christina!
My cherished memories were...
My most cherished memory had to be our reveal…
I had written Jonny a love letter the night before… We had spent the night apart, like most couples do just before they tie the knot, and it was killing me! I missed him so much already. I had to write down all my feelings for him. I wanted him to know just how much I loved and missed him, how I couldn’t wait to be his wife and start this amazing new adventure together as husband and wife.
Just before our reveal I had asked my maid of honour to hand him the letter to read. He read it just before he walked over to see me. His eyes were still a little red; it’s not often Jonny tears up.
Just as we saw each other it was literally like we were the only two people in the world. Everything went silent and we just looked at each other and wept. It’s crazy how one tiny little moment had such a great impact. I’ll never forget it.
My favourite memories were...
My favourite memory was getting married in my family’s church. Everything was beautifully lit, my father and I walked down the aisle to (believe it or not) Florence and the Machines Instrumental Never Let Me Go. Not typical is a Greek orthodox church.
It was so perfect!
Throughout the ceremony Jonny and I kept glancing at each other and smiling… exchanging sneaky looks. We were so excited we were finally getting married!
When the priest announced us as husband and wife! We walked to the front of the church, where in a Greek orthodox church you’re allowed to kiss! I didn’t want to stop. My heart was pumping with so much love and adrenaline. Was an incredible feeling.
What I enjoyed most...
The last hour of our reception, Jonny and I were finally left alone, not interrupted by all our family members and we simply just danced! Just singing, laughing and dancing with each other.
What advice would I give...
It’s so important to take moments with your future spouse and just enjoy the wonderful feeling of getting married. Try not to get distracted, you have family and friends to help you thought the day and night, no need to keep stressing or planning. Just enjoy yourself and dance the night away.
