From Think Happy Events... Taghrid and Paul are an amazing couple coming straight from London. They are both so artistic and different; she is an actor, and he is a composer. They decided to get married on Milos, the island that they visited one summer before and totally loved with its unique landscape, chilled atmosphere, and delicious food. Not too touristy, away from big cities, crowds, and noise – Milos matched all these criteria.

They hosted a pre-wedding beach party at Sarakiniko, a beach situated on the north shore of the island. Waves driven by north winds shaped the greyish-white volcanic rock into amazing shapes, and the area is often compared to a moonscape. The local people refer to the scenic landscape of Sarakiniko as "Lunar". All guests enjoyed the light blue water of the Mediterranean sea. Inflatable games, big laughs, and ultimate relaxation were had by all. In the afternoon, the family took a photo at the top of the rock and enjoyed sparkling wine before the traditional Greek “meze" dinner.

The wedding took place at the ancient Roman style theater on the island. The groom arrived first with his band in his retro convertible car. He patiently waited for the bride, while the guests with big hats and umbrellas were entertained by the nostalgic songs written by Paul for this special day of his life! Two Spanish directors were responsible for the flow of the ceremony, and yes, the bride came on time. Strong words, slow paces, songs promising eternal love – it was an impressive and emotional ceremony.

The wedding dinner happened on the southern part of Milos. A long and festive table facing the deep blue sea welcomed all 80 guests to taste the famous Greek seafood and enjoy a breathtaking view from the edge. For the decoration, many, many succulents were used to match the natural landscape of Milos. After dinner, the couple broke the custom made piñatas shipped from London as a symbol of joy and good fortune to come. And when the night came, before the wild dancing and party began, the lights of Santorini and Crete where seen from far, far away. The lights were dancing in the open sea, giving their best wishes to the couple. An after party followed at the beach, with salty kisses, bare foot dancing, and night swims for all. The day finally ended with the sun rising and everyone extremely happy, but exhausted, heading back to their small white hotels with the blue painted windows. This big day for Taghrid and Paul is a day to definitely remember…too full, too special, too beautiful!
