There are two ways in which you could meet the love of your life – it could be a chance of fate, or it could be because a friend of yours decided that a bit of meddling would be fun. And for Aregu and Arpad, it was the latter.Who knew that the carefully orchestrated plan would involve a Costa Navarino wedding that one could simply dream about!
A mutual friend of theirs, Zeina, sneakily prepared a meeting for the pair at a BBQ, and three days later…they had their first date. Fast forward three and a half years, Arpad found himself on one knee, proposing to Aregu whilst tucking her into bed. And so it was that the exceedingly happy couple were engaged to be married.
When it came to wedding planning, there was two things that the pair were sure about – one was to enjoy a Costa Navarino wedding and the second, was to have Liam and Stam as their wedding photographer. This is because Aregu had met the two award-winning photographers at her friend, Victoria’s wedding at the stunning Kensington Palace in London two years prior. So, they contacted Liam and Stam, and the four of them met in a cafe on King’s Road in London to discuss their exciting plans.
They decided to have their big day in in Messinia, Greece, with the wedding ceremony at the Greek Orthodox Metamorphosis Sotirio Church, and to have a Costa Navarino wedding reception. This is because they absolutely fell in love with the location during their first visit, and knew that the spectacular view would make for some excellent Greece wedding photography.
Aregu definitely complimented the beautiful location with her breathtaking wedding dress by Phillipa Lepley and Arpad, with a smart tux that was custom made. And as the couple stood before one another, they realised that that was their most magical moment that they would never forget.
With their stunning venue, gorgeous wedding attire, and friends and family flying in from all over the world, Aregu and Arpad had the most magical wedding day – one that both Liam and Stam were honoured to be apart of.
