Another fabulous Wedding Coordinated & Styled by wedstyle www.wedstyle.com.au “Our Big Fat Italian Greek Wedding” at Crown Perth’s Astral Ballrooms.
Huge congratulations to the gorgeous couple Claudia & Nick, one of the most delightful couples we have had the opportunity to work with.
When Claudia & Nick said they wanted to include some Italian & Greek traditions and fun creativity in their modern wedding reception, they received a big YES from the wedstyle team.!!
As Claudia & Nick are of different religions, it was important to them & their our families to embrace the best of both cultures on the day. They had two ceremonies, one Catholic and one Greek Orthodox which were both beautiful and traditional in their own way.
We also secretly organised for Greek “smashing of the plates” tradition with the couple to surprise their guests. Plate smashing is a traditional Greek folk custom involving the smashing of specially-produced plaster plates during celebratory occasions. The plates are thrown on to the dance floor while the Bride & Groom usually have their first dance.
Our Wedding Planner Michelle also worked with the talented Dancer/Choreographer Carmello Pizzino from “Dancing with The Stars” to coordinate a mash-up dance video, as Claudia & Nick wanted a way to bring both sides of the family and their cultures to create a surprise film clip involving all of their guests to open the dance floor. We helped organise props for all the guests to enjoy and created a six minute mash up of some of their favourite songs and with Claudia & Nick running around the room so that they could dance with all their friends and family to their favourite party classics. It was a great way to get everybody up out of their seats dancing and enjoying themselves after the four course dinner and all the formalities.
Their wedding Videographer Aaron from “Everafter Productions” videoed the mash-up and then released the video online and it was so well received it went viral overnight. The film clip was shared not only all over Australia but right across the globe, reaching as far as Ireland, Belgium and Greece. It was such a hit that Claudia & Nick were interviewed by Channel 7 News Perth and Sunrise! You can see the film clips here…
Everyone had such a great time at Claudia & Nick’s Wedding at, the dance Mash-up sums up the whole experience we had working with Claudia & Nick, lots of fun & laughter.
They broke the internet with lots of websites sharing the story:
