My brother and his lovely wife, Grace, got married in Santorini in May this year. It was an absolutely gorgeous day, sparkling turquoise seas, sunshine, infinity pools and Grace looked like a young Sophia Loren. It was a little wedding, just the immediate family, and that felt perfect for Connor & Grace. It was relaxed, there was plenty of time to catch up with everyone, and we still all had a bit too much to drink and danced to some cheesy tracks under the stars.
Back home, my Mum was keen to have a wee Northern Irish celebration too, so lots more friends and family could wish Connor & Grace well. I came up with a Greek inspired menu, in honour of the Santorini wedding, and 40 people feasted Greek style at the end of June, despite the slightly drizzly Irish weather!
