Menios Kassos and Stamatina (Matina) Belas.

Menios Kassos married Stamatina Matina Belas at St Lukes Church Berry on Sunday 23rd July, 1950. Paul Calopedis of the Nowra Cafe was the best man, while Nick Calopedis was groomsman. The bride, who was given away by her uncle, Speros Belas of the Berry Cafe, wore a gown of silver lame, with tight fitting bodice, made by her aunt Maritsa Belas.

Over 250 guests attended the wedding, and the reception was held in The Berry School of Arts, where Paul Calopedis acted as MC.
