Sonny and Niamh’s love story is as beautiful as the couple itself. It is about being a pioneer,
accepting differences, growing together and finding a home in each other …
And it is about two families from different countries growing together as one. Carried by the
love of their families and friends Sonny and Niamh were able to walk through life with
confidence, to live in different countries and cultures, to travel around the world and finally
to let their dream come true … getting married on Paros at the Amphitheater of Monastiri.
Everything got carefully prepared …. Stairs turned into comfortable seats, covered with
white soft pillows and on top little golden rice bags and nicely handmade fans with little lilac
ribbons – Niamh’s favorite color …
What a stunning place to seal a marriage covenant. The air was filled with love, the sun was
shining a little bit brighter, no wind as if the universe ceased to breathe, to freeze the
moment and to witness what was coming ….
Niamh escorted by her father stride through a white wooden arch adorned with green and
white flowers combined with light lilac fabric. The soft smell of baby breath and Petunias
attended them while walking down the aisle out of white paper bags with candles.
A breathtaking moment for Sonny … overwhelming yet blissful…
Taking his bride from her father to get ready to say “I will” …
The wedding ceremony started with a ring blessing. While the white pillow with the rings passed
each wedding guest to give their personal blessings, whishes and love, Sonny and Niamh
took the next step …
As unique as the couples are the wedding ceremonies. Couples have these special moments
and places that created particular memories and connections between them. To share one
of theirs, Sonny and Niamh brought sand from two beaches they have a special relation
with to do a symbolic act of unity.
After the ceremony it was time to enjoy the newly united couple, the beautiful area, some
cold water and fresh lemonade.
… to be continued at the reception …
Another beautiful place – natural decorated in the color of Greece – was waiting for the
wedding party. The venue located a bit outside of Naoussa was in a nice and quiet
environment overlooking the blue Aegean Sea…
Cylinders with floating candles line the edge of the swimming pool, not obvious in the
daylight but with a bright effect in the night.
White paper lanterns hanging from the roof of the pergola giving a nice cozy feeling while
enjoying some drinks and …
… slowly finding the seat for the dinner …
… a nice glass of traditional local wine, the taste of Greek food in your mouth, a soft cool
breeze on your skin, a wonderful view mixed with the joy and happiness of love …
what else is necessary?
For sure music and a DJ to have the best party ever and to light up the dance floor in a mix of
colors that matches everything and everybody
Playing romantic music, traditional Indian music, Greek music and for sure all the music you
want to listen and dance to on your wedding day….
What a sparkling wedding … what a sparkling day …
