A ceremony under a beautiful big tree, overlooking a picturesque bay in the beautiful country of Montenegro well I'm sure it doesn't get much better than that! Evgenia & Pavel love this country it's stunning nature, rich culture and amiable people and they had no doubt upon getting engaged that that's where they would go for their destination wedding. With romantic decor and colours they had OLGA PLAKITINA there to document all the festivities and her images are beautiful!!

TELL US ABOUT YOUR PROPOSAL: It was no way romantic: no kneeling, no ring in the glass of champagne or anything like that. Nevertheless it was really touching. Just one morning I woke up and saw Pavel with a ring in his hand looking at me. There was no need for any words of proposal.

TELL US ABOUT FINDING YOUR WEDDING DRESS: Frankly speaking I didn't have an experience like many others do when they try on a lot of dresses while looking for the one'. I took a chance and placed an order online. I felt really nervous waiting for it for several months. But when it came it fitted perfectly. The same was with my wedding shoes.

ANY DIY OR BUDGET ELEMENTS? All stationery elements were designed by Pavel and me. We used a floral motif matching the colours of the wedding: pink, peach and beige. Our guests were involved in the process of preparing for our wedding too. Dresses for a Ring Bearer and a Flower Girl were sewn by my lovely Mom. One of our friends, who unfortunately had no opportunity to come to our celebration, made a ring pillow with our names and wedding date engraved on it. It was a very pleasant and heartwarming surprise for us.

DESCRIBE YOUR WEDDING FLOWERS: I am really fond of English roses. So the accent in my bouquet was on these incredible flowers. They were ideally supplemented with other garden roses, alstroemeria, eucalyptus and astilbe.

FAVOURITE DETAIL OF THE DAY: Swings on the tree entwined with ivy. Children in their tender pink dresses looked on it like little fairies.

WHAT ADVISE WOULD YOU GIVE OUT TO A COUPLE PLANNING THEIR WEDDING? Be calm and enjoy every moment. It is one of the most important days in your life and all minor troubles that can occur on the wedding day are not important. You won't even remember them on the day after wedding.

MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT? Me walking down the aisle with musicians playing our favourite song. Pavel and all our nearest and dearest looking at me with a heartfelt admiration.
