Nefeli and David met in a bar in London in 2005 and it was love at first site. The ever romantic David decided to propose to Nefeli  at Christmas in 2006. The couple then concentrated on planning their wedding and set the date for 20th of

September 2009. They got married at The Greek Orthodox Cathedral of the Dormition of the Mother of God (Panayia), Wood Green,  and the reception followed at The Royal Chace Hotel (pg. 26). They would like to share their special day with you!

The dress:  I searched everywhere for a dress and finally found the perfect one at Stevie Gowns London N18. As soon as I tried it on I knew it was the one! It was a brilliant white strapless gown with crystals on the bodice. The skirt was a meringue, covered with scattered crystals. I felt like a real princess! The train was quite long and when spread out made the dress look very grand.

The Accessories: The floor length veil was also from Stevie Gowns. My shoes and tiara where great finds on the internet. The jewellery I wore was from Swarovski.

The Suit: David hired his suit from Tux & Tails Winchmore Hill N21. He wore a grey suit with tails, accompanied by a silver waistcoat and a silver

The Best man/Ushers: Our best man and three ushers also hired their grey suits from Tux & Tails. However they wore lilac waistcoats and cravats to match our theme.

The maid of honour/bridesmaids: The maid of honour wore a silver dress and our three bridesmaids wore lilac dressed with silver detail on the bodices from Littlewoods. The flower girls wore little white dresses from BHS.

The venue & music: We always wanted to have our reception at The Royal Chace Hotel and that’s where we had it! All the staff were very helpful and we had a lovely experience. Our band was none other than Diastello who played Three times a Lady by Lionel Ritchie for our first dance.

The menu: We had prawn cocktail as a starter followed by roast chicken with potatoes and vegetables and our dessert was yummy Tiramisu.

Videographer: VGM (pg.36). He was fantastic. He really made us feel comfortable throughout the day!

The flowers/decorations/colour scheme: Our colour scheme was white, silver and lilac my favourite colours! David was good at just letting me choose and get on with everything!  Sekret Garden Enfield, decorated the guest tables with fish bowls which had two gold fish each and decorated with white and lilac flowers. Zayni Flowers London did the buttonholes, my bouquet of white roses with diamantes in the buds, the bridesmaids bouquets Calla lilies, the head and cake tables.

The Cake: We had a four tier cakes with silver hearts embellished on each side of each tier. The cake was spectacular and very tasty made by Nectar Patisserie Tottenham. We wanted something out of the ordinary for our cake topper so we had a glass heart with our names inscribed in it and the date of our wedding.

Special Touches: The whole day was amazing and we enjoyed every moment. Very special moments was when Leonidas played the violin at the reception.

Groom’s Tip: Make sure your speech is perfect as it is one of the most important moments of the day!

Brides Tip: ‘Make sure your maid of honour is by your side throughout the day as you will need her. My maid of honour was amazing wouldn’t  change her for the world!’
