A Macedonian wedding tradition: “Breaking of the Bread” Ceremony

I photographed Sanja and Rob’s wedding recently, it was a fabulous day for everyone. Being a Macedonian wedding, there was lots of dancing, food and laughter! Hats off to everyone who danced all day (and night), such a display of endurance.

I thought I would share one of the Macedonian wedding day traditions, the “breaking of the bread” ceremony. This involves the two dads breaking a loaf of bread, the winner is the one with the bigger piece and predicts who will wear the pants in the family. Both dads were taking this very seriously and a lot of engineering was being performed beforehand to ensure their half of the bread was bigger! You be the judge, the expressions in these documentary photos tell who won!

I’ll be sharing more Macedonian wedding traditions in the coming days, so be sure to check in for a look.
