Set against the magnificent Nymfaio of Florina, Dimitris and Fotini joined their lives in matrimony, on 18 August 2018. After a five-year relationship, Dimitris gave Fotini a photo album filled with pictures of their life together, got down on one knee and asked her to marry him while they were staying at Imaret Hotel in Kavala celebrating their anniversary!
The stone-built picturesque church of St. Nicholas was where the couple chose to get married. Fotini arrived at the church shining in her modest yet striking dress, a creation of the famous designer Celia Kritharioti. The silk wedding dress with a tight waistline and a generous smile-lined neckline, beautifully highlighted the bride’s silhouette. Her natural makeup highlighted her beauty while the red lipstick added a special touch and her hair, which she wore in a low chignon bun completed her look. On the other hand, Dimitris chose a black slim-line suit Ermenegildo Zegna and matching black tie and shoes.
Two floral pillar columns in white and olive-green shades decorated the entrance of the church and the white table filled with wedding treats. White and olive-green was the colour palette the couple chose for their wedding, which suited the green-covered landscape completely. Lemonade and iced tea were placed on oak barrels to quench the thirst of the couple’s guests.

The wedding reception was held at La Moara. Homemade liqueur made with love by granny Matoula greeted the couple’s friends and relatives. The rustic chic mood that Dimitri and Fotini wanted to prevail on their wedding day was crystal clear throughout the venue. At the entrance of the venue, a wooden sign welcomed guests, while a wire mesh-made structure invited guests to leave the newlyweds their wishes.
The garden was filled with oblong picnic tables and picnic chairs. The centre of the tables was decorated with flower arrangements in the same colours as the flower arrangements that decorated the church as well as candles. String lights were placed along the table, but also on the dance floor. The white sousplats with printed quotes, taken from Greek poets, and on top the keys of love where placed along with the little bottles of Limoncello liqueur, the couple’s wedding favours, impressed all the guests.
A special feature of the reception was the bright turquoise portable vintage bar that was placed close to the dance floor, urged the crowd to cool off with delicious cocktails. High barrels around the dance floor were used as high tables.
Fotini and Dimitris arrived at the reception in a much more relaxed attire. Dimitris got rid of his tie and his jacket, while Fotini let her hair loose and her wedding dress was transformed into a wedding dress with straps and an impressive neckline, although the skirt remained the same.
The fun, love and tenderness, which exuded in the area that night was captured by the professionals White on Black Studio.
