Our wedding

Hubby and I have been together for more than 15 years.
We never really thought we had to get married since we had no children together and no fortune together!
But we had locked each other's fortune in our hearts and that was enough!
He proposed very informally this Easter sending me the civil wedding ceremony application form in a USB.
Some found this very nice! I thought it was at least original! No bending knees at this age!
And I said "Yes! Of course!"
Because I love him and have been loving him all these years.
Because no matter what, he is my best friend and we share so much together!
And we have been living together all these years!
And because in Greece unless you are married to someone you are not allowed to take leave off work to take care of him in case of need and you are not even allowed to stand by him in hospital and listen to the doctors talking about your loved one because you are not next of kin!
For all those reasons and more we got married.
He didn't want wedding rings, or a big open wedding!
Only a few relatives and friends.
I didn't want a wedding gown, Ι wanted it a bit handmade and really wanted around me the people who have shown their respect and love to us all these years!
And here it is.
More details on various aspects of this wedding after the honeymoon!
Thank you everyone for your love and wishes from near and far!

Dear Ariadne,
Wishing you and Themis all the best, many many more years of love and happinness.
We did the same so I understand your choice of wedding very well. What matters is your love for each other, and the acceptance and respect shown by family and friends on both sides.
Have a nice honeymoon !
Love to you both.

Oh how perfect, TWO is better than one, thanks for sharing with us at our beautiful world!

Magali@TheLittleWhiteHouse said...

Getting married to be able to take care of each others no matter what seems to me the most perfect reason to get married. It shows true love and is much more meaningful that a "young white wedding". I had tears in my eyes reading your post... which I was expecting to read!

Thalia Tzellou said...

Congratulations Ariadne. This is a perfect sort of wedding with loved ones and friends and not long lost relatives who you haven´t seen in 15 years and you feel obliged to invite. Hope you will both continue to be happy together for many years to come.
