Many congratulations to Yvonne and Ged who today follow up their July wedding in the UK with a Blessing and Reception at Alexandros on the beach. With it expected to remain a sunny cloudless day it should be perfect at 5pm for the service and the setting sun later a great accompaniment for their photos.
As regular holidaymakers here Yvonne and Ged are joined by many family members and friends who have come over for the celebrations along with friends they have made during their visits here.
My best wishes go to the happy couple on their special day.
I must add this was the best wedding i have ever been to. The service on the roof terrace in the late afternoon sun with the congregation seeing the sea and Roda as a background view was lovely. Greek head ribbons to give the local touch and we all felt the emotion of the day.
Going downstairs for more photos, drinks the meal with the staff very busy and attentive at the tables but still looking after their other customers. Moving onto dancing with music chosen by the happy couple before a Greek night complete with table lifting by the mouth, fire dancing, plate smashing and even musical chairs and belly dancing. Full participation not just by the guests but also the other diners or those in to have a look at the wedding who stayed to join in. Clearly they dont have such fun at the all inclusive!
The time rushed by under the starlit night and many agreed it was the best wedding they had ever been at. I'm sure the glorious weather and it being outside in Roda played its part. As the early hours approached the guests began to filter away knowing they had been part of a very special occasion, and one that would surely help make any witnessing holidaymakers want to return to Roda.
Thanks to Yvonne and Ged for the invite. May your marriage be as special as your wedding. The memories will live long and i will arrange to send some photos onto you.
