The 1st steps were poignant for the newlyweds. Athena recalls “In Greek Orthodox wedding ceremonies, the bride and groom are ushered by the priest on a walk about the ceremonial table exactly where they take their initial measures as a married couple. This is when we realised we had been in fact married.”
