With a Touch of Red

When cultures meet, this is the result. The couple decided to have their wedding in the groom’s hometown, Limassol. They trusted Here With Me for the coordination of their special day.

Being Chinese, the beautiful bride’s only condition was that the wedding should have Chinese elements. Red was the colour of her choice and peonies were the main flowers featured.

The ceremony took place at the wooden St. George chapel within the Four Seasons Hotel in Limassol. While the chapel is somehow different than typical Christian chapels, it still had a very traditional feel to it. The setting was beautiful and the ceremony was very intimate.  After the ceremony, friends and family gathered around the chapel for a glass of bubbly, before moving to the ballroom for a gourmet dinner followed by dancing until the early hours.

Stylish Wedding Shoes: Yes Please!

Choosing your wedding shoes can seem like such a difficult decision to make. They are a part of your day and should make you feel amazing!

Some brides like to go for white, beige or sparkly shoes to match their dress. If you are a funky bride, you might choose bright colored shoes that maybe match the bridesmaids’ dresses or the wedding color theme.

My Tips:

One very important thing you have to remember is that you will be wearing your shoes from early in the morning until the last thing at night. You may find the most fabulous pair of shoes, but they may not be the most comfortable. So, a spare pair of comfy shoes might be a good idea for late night dancing.

It is important that you have your shoes for your dress fittings, so that your tailor can adapt the hem of your wedding dress to the perfect length. Also make sure you wear your shoes before the actual wedding day to get them worn in a bit.

Here are some of my favorites.

5. Just relax!

Having a wedding could be especially stressful, especially for the bride. In Cyprus the living rhythm is much slower than most western European countries. So, in addition to the idea of combining your wedding with a vacation, this particular destination provides a very chilled and relaxing environment that can levitate some of that stress.

6. You will never get bored

If you want to take a break from lying on the beach, Limassol has a variety of beach clubs, nightclubs, trendy bars and cafes.

Colour Theme: Yellow

I welcome summer with a yellow inspiration board. For me yellow is sunshine. It reflects summer perfectly as it is uplifting and illuminating, offering hope, happiness, cheerfulness and fun. Yellow shines with optimism, enlightenment, and happiness.

This board is a result of everything yellow that excites me.
