This photo was found in a box in a basement of a house in Potamos.
None of the people are named. Is the wedding in Kythera, Australia, USA? have you seen that distinctive window backdrop in another photograph?
Possibly taken in the 1920s.

My mother arrived in Australia in April 1956 and went to live at the home of George and Koula Carydis in Auburn. She shared a bedroom without another young girl, Anna Veneris. In June 1956, Anna married Theo Kepreotes were my mother was a bridesmaid. At this wedding, my mother met my father Stephen Zantiotis and they were married in November 1956. Such an eventful year for my mum!

Con, Kyrani (Anna) and Denis Anastasopoulos at Kyrani's wedding to Stephen Peter Zantiotis (my dad) on 19 November 1956.
The siblings came to Australia from Perlegianika. Denis arrived in 1951, Con in 1952, and my mother in 1956. Con and Denis shortened Anastasopoulos to Poulos.
My mother, Anna (Kyrani) Anastasopoulos arrived in Australia in April 1956 aged 18. She was a bridesmaid at the wedding of Theo & Anna Kepreotes where my dad, Stephen, spotted her and asked her to dance. She kept saying no but he persisted and she finally relented and the rest, as they say, is history. They were married at Agia Triada Church on November 19, 1956.
