Khaela + George real wedding

  | 

Hearing the phrase, “My brother is single. I think you guys would really like each other”, is usually met with a sigh and then an as-quick-as-possible change of subject. However, Brisbane bride Khaela took a chance on the advice from her friend, and the outcome couldn’t have been better; finding the love of her life, George.

With the proposal in Waikiki being such a special moment for the two, Khaela and George decided to hold their wedding at the Greek Orthodox Church in Brisbane exactly two years from the day they got engaged. A particularly special moment for the couple and their families was that the priest who married them was George’s grandfather! “Our ceremony was incredibly special to us,” Khaela says.
After the ceremony, the more than 220 guests moved on to the reception next door at The Greek Club where Khaela’s dad had organised a funny surprise for her. “He secretly organised for the DJ to play a really old rock and roll song that he used to dance to with me when I was a little girl. Our guests made a huge circle surrounding my dad and me on the dance floor and laughed and cheered while we danced and played our fake guitars!”
Sadly, Khaela’s younger brother was unable to be there on her wedding day, but this didn’t stop him from being involved in the reception, much to Khaela’s delight! “My Mum set up a huge projector screen during the speeches and played us his live speech from London. It was an extremely teary moment and a great surprise on the night.”
Khaela says that the most special memory of the day was George’s father’s speech, which tugged at a few heartstrings. “It was incredibly touching and blew everyone away. It was super touching and was the first time I have seen both George and his dad so emotional.”
