On August 30, 2008, have been done Ploutarchos’s and Heleni’s marriages according to the ancient Greek custom. It was an event with emotion since, many times this year relived the Greek marriage after 1.700 years of forbiddance and oblivion.

The couples that are not content with the simple ceremony of the City hall, choose the custom of the greek culture that comes from the free expression of their desire to participate mentally, intellectually but also with their presence in a Hellenic (Greek) ceremony that represents their ideals. And it is true that after centuries of false accusations of the greek ideals, a choice like this involves kind intentions and courage. More and more prefer to perform Hellenic ceremony for this important moment of their life.

Here it is Plutarchos and Heleni with their little son, Leonidas.

Plutarhos and Heleni are an adorable couple. By living their family life for many years, they decided to fulfill their union by performing a Hellenic marriage, so that the values they have to take their symbolical expression, by matching the ideals with their actions.

Plutarhos’s and Heleni’s marriages have been performed at the sanctuary Cave of the Nymphs(Aristoteles’s School in Macedonia), at the ancient Mieza.
At the ceremony attended to give their wishes to the couple, people of the area of current Mieza, who with their presence proved the rich past of thousands of years of Greek presence and history of their Macedonian ancestors in the area.
