YOUR SITE WORKS!!! WE GOT MARRIED!!!
Dear friends, I just thought id let you know that 2 years ago, me and Louise met using your site and we got married 2 weeks ago (21st of September 2013) in GREECE!!! THANK YOU!! I was Leonidas1821 and Louise was LouisaP. I just thought you would like to let others know how effective your website is.
Back in 2009, I set out to fulfil a dream of going to Santorini. On the first day I arrived, I set out to get to Oia for the sunset. On the way there I passed the village of Imerovigli and noticed a beautiful church high up on a hill. Drawn by its beauty, I took the turning to find the church of Agios Markos and noticed the church’s breath taking views. There was also a wedding that had just taken place and asked if it was ok to go into the church in order to kiss the icons. Overwhelmed by its small, intimate capacity and stunning views, I had one new dream… to be married here one day. He missed the Oia sunset for that day!
2 years later, on the May bank holiday of 2011, I was at a Greek festival in Birmingham. I had a stand selling pictures of Greece, bracelets and the odd football shirt. Louise was also at the Greek festival and a picture of a Greek flag caught her eye. Seeing Louise and smiling, I grabbed an Olympiacos football shirt and tried to sell Louise the shirt insisting it would make a lovely nightie! Louise smiled but did not buy the shirt but she did return to buy the picture of the Greek flag. Sadly, the stall had packed up and Louise couldn’t buy the picture.
Later that year Louise and her sister booked a holiday in Cyprus. They visited Aphrodite’s Birth place “Petra tou Romiou” and on the banks of the pebbled beach, Louise noticed that people were making hearts and messages using the white pebbles along the banks of the beach. Louise saw a big pebble heart and took one of the pebbles from this heart. Unknown to her, I was also on holiday in Cyprus that same year and I too visited Aphrodite’s birth place. I too noticed the pebble hearts and one heart too his attention. I approached a pebble heart with a pebble missing, the one that Louise took the pebble from! I took a picture of it.
In November that year, I decided to find my soul mate, someone I could spend the rest of my life with. I searched online If a Greek dating existed and there was! Eligible Greeks! I wrote my profile and attached a few pictures. I paid for membership to make it more flexible for conversations. I have to be honest but it was on the last day of the membership when it all happened…worth waiting for.
Louise sent a message to a user named Leonidas1821 on a Greek dating site. That username was in fact ME! Once we realised we had bumped into each other at the Greek festival, once we realised that I took a picture of the exact pebble heart that Louise took the pebble from, we knew this was fate. Before we even arranged to go on a date, I already booked a holiday to Santorini for the two of us! On our first date, we set eyes on each other with a big smile and straight away we knew this was love at first sight.
I contacted a wedding company in Santorini and organised a Greek Orthodox wedding with all the traditional aspects. From donkey to flower arrangements, it was all taken care of.
Thank you so much for your website, we are both so happy we found you and Louise and I are happy wefound each other.
