[ The very, very short version ]
The moment we got engaged, was naturally the moment the Wedding questions began!
It wasn't long after, that we decided to avoid any sort of build up, and 'help' from our Greek families - and spring a Wedding on them... in our very own 'Gringlish' style!
Invitations were sent out for an Engagement Party at The Panama Dining Room, and half way through we surprised guests with a civil ceremony! Once formalities were over, we then announced our Official Greek Church Wedding - for the very next day!
Proceedings followed the day after at North Balwyn Greek Orthodox Church at 5pm, with a party at home afterwards that went well into the night.
What a weekend of fun it was, and we were so honoured to have our family and friends present - clearing their schedules last minute, to be with us for what turned out to be the entire weekend!
Having taken care of all the details, planned, styled & catered the weekend's events ourselves - we were well and truly looking forward to our honeymoon!!
....and so 'Gringlish Style' was born.
