A WEDDING like no other took place on Saturday.
Most brides like to think their wedding is unique in some way but this one was unique in every way.
The bride, Trista Kyriacou (nee Thorpe) arrived in a bright red garbage truck. In fact, she drove the truck.
The ceremony at Hanging Rock in Nowra was conducted by an Elvis impersonator complete with some of the King’s popular numbers.
The bride’s brother took on the role of bridesmaid and the family and guests on the bride’s side were asked to dress in red while those related to the groom, Knick Kyriacou, dressed in purple.
The bride’s dress of skulls and roses was complemented by her bright red hair, extensive tattoos and skeleton shoes.
The bouquet featured black roses with tiny skulls.
“It was a fun wedding. I knew there would never have been a wedding like it,” the bride’s mother Shell Thorpe said.
“Not many people would choose to show up to a wedding in a red garbage truck, let alone drive it.
“They always said they wanted something different, then one day Trista said she wanted to get married by an Elvis impersonator.
“He was great. He sang Can’t Help Falling In Love With You as they walked from the truck to the ceremony.
“He did the official ceremony and married them. Then he did an Elvis ceremony, where he read the vows using titles of Elvis songs,” she said.
Mrs Kyriacou said it was “the best day ever”.
“It had to be completely what we wanted, different and entertaining,” she said.
“I think the highlight was my arrival, but the whole thing was pretty overwhelming.”
Mrs Kyriacou, who lost her grandfather to cancer two weeks before the wedding, took the opportunity to encourage people to donate to cancer research.
The couple will honeymoon in Melbourne before returning to their Bomaderry home.
