The Ceremony: Every moment was special on our big day but two moments that stand out for Sophia was the fact that Father Anastasios who was a priest at the church and the Greek school that Sophia attended as a little girl presided over the ceremony. Also the first steps we took together around the table as husband and wife were very special as we got to see all our friends and families faces and it was priceless seeing them all so happy for us!

The Cake :Made by Delicieux Cakes designed by Andy and Sophia. Square vintage inspired bottom tier with draped icing (red velvet), second tier was hexagon quilted icing with crystals (lemon sponge) ,third tier fresh flowers, fourth tier draping lace icing (Victoria sponge) and fifth tier (chocolate sponge) with draping pearls topped with flowers. Simply amazing!

Beauty tips :I did my own hair and make up as that is my love and job, (Artistrybysophia.co.uk) so everything I advise and do on other brides I did on myself. I used hair pieces on myself for added volume, no spray tans and keep skin hydrated with water on the run up, its amazing how much you neglect yourself.
