At the Sanctuary of the Nymphs (in the area of ancient Mieza) were performed on June 28 of 2008 (a week after the Prometheia 2008) the marriages of Sterianos and Penelope.

We wish them good luck and happy life!

The ancient Mieza is located approximately 2 km from the city of Naousa (Makedonia, Greece).
In the Sanctuary of the Nymphs where the marriage was performed, was the School of the ancient philosopher Aristoteles, where the young Alexander (the Great) was taught philosophy, morality, music and mathematics.

Sterianos and Penelope traveled from the U.S.A., where they live, to Greece, in order to get marry according to the ancient Greek custom of our ancestors. They desired to perform their marriages during the holidays of the Promitheia, but they didn’t make it on time.

Sterianos is Greek. Penelope is half Welsh (from her father’s side) and half German (from her mother’s side). The Greek name Penelope, which she accepted proudly and with her own desire, was given to her in a ceremony that preceded the marriage.

In the ceremony participated the best woman Eleni (Greek who lives permanently in U.S.A.).

Apart from the relatives of Sterianos, in the ceremony were presented their children, Penelope’s parents, as well as friends of their who traveled from the U.S.A. to attend the marriage and know Greece better.

THE PROCESSION…

The marriage started with the procession of the newlyweds towards the altar, during of which all the attendants sang Hymeneos with the accompaniment of music!
