An Elegant Pier Wedding That Will Make You Want To Get Married In Cyprus

Weddings in Cyprus, between locals normally demand a church wedding, an excessive amount of guests and several other traditions that simply cannot be avoided with a religious wedding ceremony. This couple wanted to keep it simple. Celebrating their love meant sharing their special day with the closest family and friends and treating them to a feast for the eyes, the soul and the stomach as well of course.

The bride envisioned an outdoor, romantic wedding, next to the sea. Choosing the flowers and colour palette was something very personal and emotional for her. She wanted to feel a connection, and so she did when the Proteas flowers, were introduced; You see, her mother spent her entire childhood in South Africa, the home country of the Proteas flowers, which also represent hope and change.

Before the ceremony, friends and family gathered at the groom’s and bride’s houses to wish them well and pay their respects, something which is custom in Cyprus. The bride wore a stunning Adam Zohar wedding gown.

The ceremony took place at the Elias Beach Hotel in Limassol, at sunset. A musician friend played “I’m yours” by Jason Mraz, as the bride walked down the aisle. She says this was her favorite moment of the day and it was hard for her to keep happy tears from falling down. “It was always you” she said. The groom truly shined with joy. He promised to always love and cherish her, because she is worth it.

Intimate Winter Wedding

If you are thinking of a wedding in Cyprus, you are probably thinking of the sun, the sea and a summer vibe. This couple had something else on their minds. An intimate, dim-lit, indoor wedding, with views of the sea is exactly how they imagined their special day. It was the perfect celebration of their love. The bride, one of the sweetest, kindest human beings I have ever met, wanted it to be romantic, elegant with a simple touch. When the groom asked me to play the Glasgow Love Theme song from the movie Love Actually for their ceremony, I was ecstatic as it is one of my favorite movies of all time.

Love was all around on their wedding day. You could actually feel it in the air. Some of their closest friends and family traveled all the way from the US, Saudi Arabia and Lebanon, just to be a part of the start to a wonderful journey together.

East meets West

East meets West. Instant love. Their first date was on a roof-top bar in Shanghai, where they both lived at the time. They describe their first date as being kind of magical. Their love grew from there and so one day Niels popped the question and she said yes!

I personally love multi-cultural weddings, especially when the couple wants to show it in every possible way. The bride’s oriental roots showed through the Chinese porcelain vases, fortune cookies, home-made freshly-baked Chinese cookies and other traditions on the wedding day. And who doesn’t love chocolate and beer? Lucky the groom is from Belgium.

Just colourful

Ask anyone who knows them well and they will tell you their love for each other is pure and will last forever.

The groom, had just one request: Make the bride happy! The bride is the type that can do anything if she puts her heart into it, but felt more comfortable leaving her wedding details to HereWithMe. She said “not having to worry about the organisation of her wedding and knowing that even the smallest detail would be taken care of” helped her relax and enjoy her wedding day.

She was however, the captain when it came to setting the colour theme.  The bride knew exactly how she wanted her wedding to look like. She loves colour and wanted her wedding flowers to look like she had gone to a field, cut a handful of different flowers and just put them together in a bunch. So we used seasonal wild and garden flowers, as well as beautiful peonies, which gave an elegant touch.

The weather may not have been ideal, considering that we had to move everything indoors. She was super unlucky, considering rain in Limassol is something we rarely experience, but she didn’t care because she knew that she was lucky enough to get married to the man she loves and that loves her back no matter what!

The Perfect Destination Wedding!

Any wedding that includes a pier, a great deal of flowers and the company of only a few loved ones, is a wedding that is bound to be a success! This lovely couple chose Limassol to say their “I do” and I think they couldn’t have made a better choice.

The wedding ceremony was intimate, romantic and very private. It was set on a stone-paved pier, surrounded by sea, while the sun was about to dive in. When I look back at their photos and how elegant everything was, it fits them perfectly. Their wedding dinner was pure joy, as the family sat down and took the time to honor the couple, share stories, play games and laugh.
