    why are they laughing at the priest after he got the bride and groom to drink from the cup?

    They are not laughing at the priest. I think they are laughing because the bride swallowed so much wine.

    Theyre not laughing at the far.. People usually giggle at this moment because they have to drink all the wine thats in the at times..its a little hard to chug the wine if the bride as in this case is not a “bar stool”..Some priests go back and forth to groom and bride..but here he went groom first and bride only..I assure you no one is laughing at the priest..

    When I lived in Australia I use to go to tons of Greek weddings. Mostly the brides were pretty young though, and the marriages were kind of arranged but agreed upon by both bride and groom. Times have changed.

    I love that the priest explains all the symbolism and speaks in plain language, very very helpful and appreciated. It makes the whole ceremony feel so much more warm. Beautiful video.

    It wouldn’t be a greek wedding without that many bridesmaids. I love it. Nice compilation of scenes. Nothing beats an Orthodox ceremony for me. The best and richest of traditions.

    It is good to see that Fr Elpidios upholds and honours the name and reputation of the clergy who have studied at St Andrew’s Theological College. He is a credit to our Church in Australia and lives up to his name by bestowing hope to many others. – From a fellow Melbourne graduate and brother in Christ, who has not forgotten the support or friendship you extended to my humble persons during my time at St Andrew’s. God-willing I will visit you in Perth soon.
