Stathis had big plans for a grand entrance into his Wedding. He imagined Eva leading a Donkey into the venue with him perched on it's back. ‘Tradition’ apparently - we’re not so sure. Perhaps another Greek wedding tradition is shaving your wife’s initial into your chest… hmmm.
Eva, from Portugal, and Stathis, from Greece, met and fell in love while working together in England and united their families on the Greek island of Corfu for their wedding. Stathis spent his summers there visiting his grandmother, who still lives on the island.
After back-to-back ceremonies in Corfu’s old town, honouring their respective backgrounds (and enduring a ferocious rice showering) we travelled inland to Danilia Village, a replica 1930s Greek village (famously used as the filming location for ITV’s ‘The Durrells’). While there, we met guests who’d travelled from Asia, Portugal, Germany, England and Italy, to name just a few… we were more than happy to represent the Irish.
