Image 121 is the wedding day of Efklia Magoulas to Stewart Read flanked by her mother Gianoula and her Uncle Theo Samios who gave me away as my father had died some years ago. The flower girl is Gianoula Arvythis daughter of Gloria Arvythis (ex. Magoulas). The couple flanking the groom are his parents John and Maxine Read. My parents Gianoula Samios of Alosianika and Nick Magoulas of Milapotimo both moved from Kythera and met and married in Australia in 1959. I thought this information might help your site which I find fantastic as a cultural history for my children so as they may appreciate and respect their heritage. Kind regards, Clare Read (Efklia Magoulas)
