The Lithuanian Love Story

June 20, 2018 1:32 pm

Joana and Visvaldas are the youngest couple that I DO KNOT has ever worked with and a beautiful example of 2 people madly in love with each other!  Both still students in England, they decided they didn’t want to wait until they could afford a formal wedding, but rather elope for an intimate celebration to bind their love to each other…

It was Monday the 1st of August 2016 when the couple arrived in Malta – the very first time they were visiting the islands and for a memorable purpose too!  When they first contacted us, we presented them with a few scenarios to choose from, and they picked what we consider to be one of the most romantic spots in Malta – the Silent Ancient Capital of Mdina!

We asked them whether they wanted us to take them to the wedding location before the big day so as to have an idea of what to expect, but they decided to keep it mysterious until the actual day!

August 4th finally arrived and the couple were growing excited with every passing day.  Joana had her hair and make up done by our beauty team, a vintage limousine was organised to pick them up from the hotel and it was finally time to make it to their ceremony venue.

As the Rolls Royce Silver Cloud drove the majestic city of Mdina, the couple were greeted by the photographer in the Cathedral square for some initial photos before the ceremony was due to commence.

The courtyard at Palazzo Falson didn’t need anything to dress it up – a very historical landmark dressed with walls that had a vast history written all over them, it was a perfect setting for an intimate ceremony.  In the presence of the registrar, I DO KNOT staff as the couple’s witnesses and the photographer, the couple exchanged their “I do’s” as the rings encircled their fingers – beautiful!

To make the most of the day and capture some precious moments to share with their families and friends once back home, the photographer accompanied the couple for another hour, stopping in various hotspots that Mdina is known for.  The area itself, being a small space, completely pedestrian and very rich in historical buildings every corner you turn to, is a photographer’s paradise, and so ideal to create a romantic setting for wedding photos!

It was then time to let the newlyweds enjoy some quality time together, ending the day with a dinner for 2 at the acclaimed Medina Restaurant.

Cheers to the new Mr. & Mrs. Stokna and many happy returns for a long and happy life together!
