Anastasios (Ernest)and Spiridoula (Lily) Combes/Coombes married in Kythera on 31st December, 1923. This photo has Spiridoula's mother standing next to her (we think) and her sister Stella (shorter lady with white scarf), who died at approximately 22 years of age.
Anastasios (Ernest) and Spiridoula (Lily) came to Australia on the ship, the "Largs Bay", arriving in August 1924. They went straight to Tenterfield, NSW, where they worked for Anastasios' brother, George Combes for a few years, before moving to Sydney.

Can anyone help with identifying any of the guests at this wedding?
