Stefanos Mavromatis and Sotiria Urda’s relatives in Australia were able to attend their wedding in Greece and celebrate with them as if they were present.

The wedding took place a few days ago in Trikala with one little quirk.

As flights were cancelled due to the coronavirus many of the couple’s family and friends could not make it out to Greece.

The newlyweds found a crafty way around the issue by deciding to broadcast their wedding via a live stream.

So as half of the guests were celebrating at night in Trikala, the rest were watching it the next morning in Australia.
