Destination Wedding in Cyprus
We arrived in a rather warm Cyprus on Monday at midnight and the temperature was a balmy 27 degrees. Due to the fact that his was a British colony they drive on the left and this makes hiring a car the perfect solution to getting around. On Tuesday evening we met with the future Bride and Groom for the first time, so far we had only spoken over the phone as they live up in the north of England and we are located down south in Surrey. 45 of their friends and family have also flown out from the UK to share in their special day. They are a very relaxed, fun and easy going couple so this destination suites them perfectly. The wedding went without a hitch on Friday 04 July. The ceremony took place on a grassy patch leading onto a sandy beach. The bridal party consisted of 2 bridesmaids, the best man, 2 page boys and a flower girl. The flowers where tropical, multi-coloured bunches and the dresses where a lovely deep purple colour. The bride looked beautiful in a strapless A-line ivory dress with train and corset at the back by Berketex Bride. On Thursday we had been to the wedding venue to scout out locations for the creative shoot. We found some rocky areas, bright flowers and an old shed that made for something a bit different from the normal bride and groom standing on the beach shots. All in all a wonderful day was had by all.
Shoot The Dress – later this evening at around 6pm we will be meeting up with the couple once again for a creative shoot the dress session. There are some stunning locations near their hotel and the water is lovely and warm, so I am sure we will have no problem coaxing the newly weds into the water! We will be back in the UK from Tuesday so keep an eye on the blog for pictures.
