To inject a bit of British into their wedding, Christina and Simon carried truffles from Lessiter’s in Hertfordshire over on the plane, and the family then assembled them into pearl boxes with rose coloured ribbon and purple flowers attached.
The couple also chose to donate money to the Geneva Centre for Autism. As a teacher, and having a God Son diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome, Christina is passionate about raising funding awareness and wanted to support the cause on her special day.
Christina’s uncle MC’d the evening and his toasts were heartfelt, funny and set the tone for the evening. The speeches ran in-between courses and a dance company (who Christina had danced with in the past) performed a contemporary duet to Marc Cohen’s True Companion, a song that encapsulated what how the newlywed couple feel about each other. Guests were also treated to the musical talent of Shuga, a band that specialise in fun, soul and Motown.
