My first Greek wedding was a full on day, so a quick explanation. I met Annie at her godparents house and with what seemed like about 100 friends and family, a violin player and 2 videographers squeezed into the front room for the ribbon ceremony and some very loud and happy clappy singing. I then rushed across London where Andy was waiting in the sunshine wearing his vest and Homer Simpson slippers (see slideshow). More squeezing into a living room, more singing and violins plus kids in bow ties and the shaving/dressing of the groom before heading to a nearby Church (keeping up?). After the ceremony the congregation headed to the reception and were joined by a fantastic Greek band and about 400 guests who ate, drank, danced, danced and danced some more before pinning A LOT of money onto the bride and groom! Just a tiny selection below with a slideshow at the bottom...photos by me and music by avalanche city. ENJOY!
I feel lucky to be writing this blog at all after my journey back from Jon & Cerians big day on the A422 from Banbury proved to be one of the most hazardous of my whole life. The snow was that heavy and roads that slippy that I nearly aborted in Brackley...it was only the thought of my wife, dog, an open fire, a glass of red wine and how awful Brackley is (sorry Brackley fans) that kept me going.....VERY slowly! Fortunately the snow had started quite lightly earlier in the day allowing us some time outside and a really nice wintry look to the shots of the happy couple. A selection of my favourites below with the slideshow at the bottom. Photos by me and music by The Verve...so turn it up and enjoy
