Katie & Kevin

I have a beautifully classic elegant Sydney wedding for you today.  No reception – just the ceremony. But beautiful, simple and elegant. Katie and Kevin were married at St Michaels Church Vaucluse with a reception following at the Crystal Ballroom, Luna Park.

Kevin tells the story of how he and Katie met. “I used to play amusement games at this shop called Playland.  My mate said he knew the girl that owned the place being Katie he suggested we go and ‘scam’ some free games. On our way up to Playland we happened to run into this girl called Katie. First impressions were mixed. No doubt she was a good-looker, suave and petite, but she was in the arms of her boyfriend, let’s mention no names, and I was introduced to her as Katie. I didn’t know she was the girl we had to scam for free games! I think Christo introduced her by her whole name and I saw my chance. Back then it mattered little if girls had partners, everyone was fair game…such is the arrogance of youth.

I was Greek, she had a Greek sounding name so with a common denominator I figured I was in with a shot. The best pick-up line I could come up with was “do you speak Greek??” Now before you roll over laughing keep in mind I was a shy boy unrehearsed in the ways of woman. I honestly thought my attempt at snatching her off her boyfriend was a legitimate tactic by using our shared heritage. Her response…”nah…can’t speak Greek, don’t care”. And with that she was gone. Shattered that my advances had little impact I trudged up to Playland and actually had to fork out my hard-earned to play games. Double Whammy!

Honestly, from the first time I saw her, I was always intrigued by Katie. In subsequent years our path’s did cross in obscure places and in obscure ways. They say things that happen are meant to be. It’s easy to be a skeptic. Fate isn’t always an easy philosophy to buy into. In my experience, you cannot find a better example than us!”

The one thing Katie knew from when she was a little girl was that she would walk down the aisle to Beethoven’s Symphony Canon in D. Accent Strings played her down the aisle.

One of Katie’s favourite memories was from the wedding rehearsal. “Oh dear this sounds terrible but when we had our rehearsal at the church the week prior, as a joke when it came time for me to say my vows I wouldn’t say “for poorer”! We had traditional vows and at the time it was this big joke that us, our minister & our bridal party had a good laugh at but on the day as I was saying my vows as I was just about to say “for poorer” my husband starts laughing, from this so did my bridal party, the minister and myself well no one knew why we were all laughing and after we re- grouped and I finished our vows, we spent the remaining of the day explaining to everyone why we all started laughing…. it was a moment that to this day makes us smile.”
