First of three weddings in one weekend this, and a whole load of new experiences for me. My first Greek Orthodox wedding, and my first time at Syon Park to name but two. Alexia and Matt had their ceremony at the fantastic St. Sophia’s Cathedral in Bayswater, complete with crowns and trips around the ceremonial table. With the speedy legal proceedings completed, everybody jumped into buses for the crawl through London’s Friday afternoon rush hour to Syon Park.
There the guests were entertained by Greek musicians before heading into the Great Conservatory for a rather hot and humid wedding breakfast. The evening party brought new experiences too with Alexia and Matt performing a traditional Greek first dance, followed by more traditional dances, before the second first dance (!) and the usual party choons.
