Marie and Theodore met at a mutual friends birthday party. It wasn’t long before the couple became inseparable with close friendship connections, living just five minutes from one another and even valuing the same things in life. This led to an exciting proposal three and a half years later. Theodore was able to surprise Marie convincing her they had a friends pre-gathering at a hotel suite. Relaxing music was playing and the room was decorated with tea lights, rose petals and Theodore even had a chilled bottle of rosé and a bowl of Maltesers – Marie’s favourites. Marie went to grab a handful of chocolates, scraping the ring box that Theodore had hidden. “I grabbed it in excitement and I hadn’t even opened it, I just started to cry.” said Marie.
They planned a timeless, elegant wedding incorporating nude, champagne, white and antique pink. Marie looked breathtaking in a beautiful bridal gown by Personalised Weddings Couture; while her bridesmaids wore dresses featuring Swarovski beading. They were married at St Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church surrounded by friends and loved ones. A celebration followed at Doltone House, Sylvania Waters where Marie and Theodore made a dramatic entrance. “We really wanted our bridal entrance to excite and buzz our guests, so we worked with our DJ and created a one off mix. From the moment we walked out with our song, fireworks went off and we were followed by Lebanese drummer, bongo and bouzouki player. That instantly got people onto the dance floor.”
One of the highlights for Marie was the moment Theodore surprised her with an adorable gift at the reception - a puppy. “We walked onto the dance floor, he covered my eyes and all I could hear were our guest’s reactions and the “Awww” and “Ohhh” sound effects. He let his hands go and I opened my eyes to this beautiful little puppy sitting in a white basket eagerly trying to jump out.” Marie and Theodore agreed they had never laughed, smiled and danced so much all in the one day and their wedding day was truly the best day of their lives.
