Barry and Debbie

It's always a bonus when we get to meet our brides and grooms before their weddings, and that's exactly what happened with Barry and Debbie... who found My Greek Wedding's website, liked what they saw, and arranged for a private meeting during their holiday here nine months before their chosen wedding date.

"Barry & I have been together nearly 5 years, we had been friends for many years before this, but I had just moved into a little cottage in the country and had no idea how to light a coal fire ....Barry offered to come round and show me, and that was it!  Two weeks later he never went home ..... it is now a running joke, that he literally did  "light my fire" and also little jokes about out-staying his welcome ... lol!

He proposed about a year & half later on a winter holiday to Egypt .... I'd love to say it was a total surprise, but it wasn't. He's not one for getting down on one knee, but it was still romantic and to be honest he could have asked me standing in a pig sty and I would've still said yes!"

"The year I met Barry was when I first visited Kefalonia with my friend Pam ...I fell in love with it straight away, and couldn't wait to bring Barry the following year ... he too fell in love with the island, and have been back every year since. We have also visited many other greek islands, but none have come close to how we feel about Kefalonia (although Skiathos is nearly a close 2nd!).....we had no doubts about where we wanted to get married, we just had to decide who we wanted to help us plan it. ...... the responses from My Greek Wedding seemed more personal and I had a gut feeling that you were the guys .... it also helped meeting you when we visited in the September before we got married."

Barry and Debbie decided on an intimate beach wedding, in June, with just very close family and friends.  The ceremony area was decorated with fresh flower arrangements in Debbie's favourite colours, and then transported to their private boat charter, which took them to a secluded beach for a mouthwatering bbq and a couple of hours of swimming in the crystal clear blue waters .... But first, of course, the traditional cutting of the cake and champagne toast ....

"Our guests absolutely loved the wedding, they are all still talking about it now, it was just a lovely relaxing day, with our nearest & dearest, all enjoying our special day.

I don't think there is one particular 'favourite' moment, apart from actually being married to Barry of course, the whole day was fantastic, it flowed lovely, there isn't a thing we would've changed .....the whole experience was magical."
