Big Fat Greek Wedding

I’m in Greece after going to Tim and Xenya’s wedding at the weekend. It was good fun, great to stay for a while with lots of my university friends. The service was at a tiny chapel on the coastline just north-east of Athens. The congregation could never have fitted in the chapel, which was just about big enough to contain the legal paperwork for signing. So the wedding was outdoors, which feels splendid. Bright summer sun, cool blue water, the stark white paint on the chapel building. The ceremony was held in ancient Greek, with chanting and singing. It was restful, both upbeat yet serious at the same time.
