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.
