Through mutual friends one night down the local.
27 and 32.
He proposed on Christmas morning in 2004. He bought the ring and wrapped it up in lots of boxes.
I went to Leeds and Martin went to Blackpool.
Martin actually picked the location and his suit!
Yes, by using the forum for ideas and the budget planner. I got ideas for dresses, flowers, etc.
No, as it was abroad there was no need for favours, etc..
My dress was a two piece from Veromia. It was ivory with scattered crystal bodice and an organza skirt. I bought it from a bridal shop called Laura Day.
I had six bridesmaids—two are friends from school and one is a friend from work. Three little ones were our nieces. They wore tea length green dresses with a pink shimmer and pink ribbon made by a shop in Whitby.
We had two best men, Martin’s close friends. They just wore plain suits and a open shirt.
St Paul’s Bay Lindos in Rhodes.
The Coliseum in Pefkos (Rhodes) and we are having a celebration party back home at the Spa Hotel in Saltburn.
A glass bottom boat.
41 came out to Rhodes for the wedding, and we have invited 120 for our celebration party back home.
Bright colours, no theme.
The restaurant decorated the tables with local bright flowers picked from the owner’s garden.
We gave all the ladies a flower from the girls who come around the tables.
My flowers were bright pink roses and a local tulip style flower. My bridesmaids had artificial flowers which a friend arranged. They were pink roses and lilies. I don’t have the name of the florist but she was Greek.
We had a Greek menu. Greek Salad or mushrooms to start. Kleftiko, moussaka or chicken for main and carrot cake wedding cake for dessert.
Carrot Cake. It was made in Lindos by a local baker.
No, we wanted it simple—just dinner and drinks.
We are having a DJ at our celebration party back home.
No, we asked for vouchers.
We had a combined wedding/honeymoon.
Seeing dolphins on our champagne cruise.
No, it was very laid back.
Definitely do it abroad! But make the most of your day!
