IT was two brides for two brothers when identical twins Mende and Kire Antoski travelled to their birthplace, Macedonia, last year.

They met cousins Beti Govanovska and Anita Ilioski at a nightspot while they were celebrating their 27th birthday. The brothers immediately fell for the girls.

They proposed three months later and the girls came from Macedonia to wed their grooms in a rare double ceremony. Mende's wife, Beti, never imagined she would have a double wedding with her cousin.

'Anita and I are very close, but I never imagined we would marry twin brothers together,' she said.

The couples married at St Ilija Macedonian Orthodox Church, Footscray, in February, with 200 guests sharing in the special day.

'The wedding was like a dream,' Beti said.

The identical twins have a habit of doing everything together, including dressing alike and driving the same cars.

The newlyweds went to Phillip Island for their honeymoon and all live together in West Sunshine."
