Paul and I went to school together and have known each other for 20 years. Paul is best friends with my brother, Leon. We never paid too much attention to each other throughout high school. In 2008, when we were much older, love blossomed, and we quickly realized that we couldn’t be apart. This was a happy surprise to both families!
“WE QUICKLY REALIZED THAT WE COULDN’T BE APART.” - ROSEMARY OVERFIELD
We love to travel and had always dreamed of visiting the Greek Islands, particularly Santorini. After Paul proposed on Matamanoa Island in Fiji in December 2012, we decided on a destination wedding to combine our marriage with a vacation. The only guests were two Australian friends who undertook witness duties.
For us an intimate civil ceremony with a beautiful view was perfect. Privacy was the most important thing to us. After speaking with Stella, our planner, and looking at fabulous properties, we took her suggestion and decided to have the wedding and honeymoon at Kirini Suites.
It was the best decision we ever made. The pictures speak for themselves really. The wedding took place just before sunset, the harpist was an amazing special touch, and the dinner was beyond words.
