South Australian Style Magazine : South Australian Style 34 Winter - Rebecca Morse
70 SA STYLE WINTER 2O18 / WEDDINGS #LOVE / The Ceremony The ceremony was held at St Sava Serbian Orthodox Church, which holds sentimental value as Damjan’s grandfather helped build it. At an orthodox wedding you’re greeted by the priest out the front of the church, he then walks you into the church along with your parents and bridal party, then the guests follow. Traditionally in Greece, the bride and groom dance from their homes to the church – I decided I wanted to do that too. So, we had a Greek band at the church and when we arrived we danced our way through the waiting guests! The Reception We had 460 guests so the venue needed to be large – we chose the Adelaide Entertainment Centre. I wanted our reception to be ‘romantic’ so I decided to decorate with lots of candles, greenery and fairy lights. Matthew from Venue Productions did a great job with the lighting and even organised a big chandelier in the middle of the dance floor. I had never seen anything like it! Matthew also arranged fireworks to follow us as we walked into the reception. There were more fireworks, dry ice and lots of gold and silver confetti falling from the ceiling when we had our first dance. We were supposed to dance to Beyoncé’s cover of At Last, but the wrong song played and instead we ended up dancing to Frank Sinatra’s The Way You Look Tonight! Being Greek, towards the end of the reception there was lots of plate smashing and drinking scotch off of the dancefloor.
