A breathtaking Greek destination wedding was the perfect day for this happy couple. Our WED2B Real Weddings Brighton feature reveals more:
A holiday romance
Amy and Charlie met on the sunny island of Crete in 2008. "I was working in a restaurant and Charlie was over on a holiday," Amy says. The two exchanged details when it was time for Charlie to go back home but the two couldn't be apart and saw one another as soon as Amy came back to England. She says "We've not spent a day apart since!"
A happy Mother's Day proposal
"When I woke up on Mother's Day, Charlie handed me our son, Archie, to change him. I thought 'OK, happy Mother's Day!'" Amy says. To her surprise, as she undid Archie's romper, she saw a new vest, one that said 'Mummy, will you marry Daddy?'
The perfect princess dress
Amy wore the sparkle and lace Carrie gown for her big day. "I felt like a princess in it!" She says. She purchased her beautiful gown from WED2B's Brighton store, "She (Natasha) put me at ease straight away, gave me good advice and found me my dress... what more could I have asked for?!"
A Santorini wedding
As Amy and Charlie met in Greece they thought it a nice destination for their big day. They started the day with some fizzy before being whisked away to their beautiful venue under the sun. "The views are breathtaking! It's romantic, scenic and has beautiful weather. It really is a dream destination," says Amy.
After the reception, the couple celebrated Greek style with traditional Greek food and dancers. "It was amazing to have some of the tradition from the country at our wedding. The Greek Dancers got everyone up and dancing!" Amy says.
Amy's top tip
"If we could do it all again, we'd dance more! I wish we had taken an hour before leaving to dance with each other and our guests. It all went so quickly!"
