Greek wedding traditions at the Palazzo Parisio, Malta.

Elizabeth & Ricky

Wedding venue: -

Palazzo Parisio, 29 Victory Square, Naxxar, NXR 1700, Malta

 

Elizabeth and Ricky are both from the UK but Elizabeth's heritage is Greek and many of their guests and family had made the trip from England & Greece to join them in at their chosen wedding destination of Malta to celebrate their marriage.

There were a lot of Greek wedding traditions incorporated into their wedding day starting off at the brides residence in Naxxar.

Elizabeth chose the 'getting ready' location due to the proximity to the Palazzo Parisio as traditionally the greek bride would walk with her bridal party to the ceremony. Now here is the favourite greek tradition that I absolutely love - Before the bride leaves her residence to walk to the ceremony, she writes on the soles of her wedding shoes all the names of the single women attending the wedding. During the walk to the ceremony, the first name to be rubbed off her shoes would be the next woman to find love and marry. It's a lovely take on the well known bouquet throw.

Elizabeth & Ricky's wedding ceremony was setup in the Palazzo's Sala Lombarda (Red Room). Wedding Reception speeches and meal were in the Parisio's golden grand Ballroom. Cake cutting, bar and dancing was on the Palazzo Parisio's Balcony Terrace.
