Real Weddings London: Roxana and Mihai’s small but chic wedding
Roxana and Mihai first met in 1997 at the seaside. “I was 14, he was 16 and he was my first boyfriend,” says Roxana. “We were together for two years but then we broke up. So we both continued with our lives and grew up. In 2013 I got married and had my daughter but, after four years, I got divorced. Throughout this time Mihai and I still sent each other text messages for holidays and birthdays, but that was it. We eventually met up over Christmas 2017 and decided to try again. It was the best decision ever! In 2018 I was visiting Mihai when he proposed at The Shard in London. It was more than perfect. Ours is the best love story.”
A dream dress
“I bought my dress from WED2B’s central London store,” says Roxana. “Luna at the store was great and she helped and supported me the whole time I was there. I fell in love with the Emmy dress. It made me feel like a princess and I just couldn't take it off! I personalised it with some sparkling straps and it was perfect.”
A small but chic wedding
The couple married in Romania on 20th July, at the Margo Lounge and Restaurant. “It was a small but chic wedding venue,” says Roxana. “It also had rooms for guests, a pool and a nice view. We didn't keep all the traditions, as we both dressed at the venue. Then we went to the church with our godparents and bridesmaids. Afterwards, we headed back to the venue for some traditional food. The reception starts at 8pm and didn’t finish until 4am the next morning!
The colour theme for the day was royal blue. "The flowers and the cake also included lots of lovely pastel colours that worked perfectly with the touches of brighter blue,” says Roxana.
A dance to remember
The newlywed’s first dance was to Perfect by Ed Sheeran. “The most beautiful moment was when we had our first dance,” says Roxana. “We chose the song because it’s exactly like our story. All my emotions came out and it made me feel like I was flying with happiness. Even now it makes me so emotional, remembering all the special moments.”
My top tips…
“Just keep calm, ask for advice and enjoy the day, as it will end fast!” says Roxana.
