Nadia Dokas and Kennyth Granger celebrated their traditional Greek wedding on November 5, 2016 at Melrose Melbourne.
The couple, aged 25 and 30 respectively, met while working in the same office – Nadia an administration assistant and Kenny a freight handler. They soon realised they had actually attended the same high school. “We instantly had a connection and spent as much time together as possible,” explains Nadia. “We became inseparable.”
Before being wed, they welcomed the birth of their daughter Eva who became an important part of their special day. “The highlight of our wedding would have to be when our little girl joined us for our first dance and had every single guest in tears,” smiles Nadia.
Their 120 guests, who attended a ceremony at St Dimitrios Greek Orthodox Church and the reception at Melrose Melbourne, were treated to love bird salt and pepper shakers as favours. “Our wedding was simple, elegant but most importantly full of love,” says the bride. “To be able to share the special day with our beautiful little girl was the most amazing feeling.”
