Something Blue…

For all the brides looking for the perfect destination wedding, I am going to go ahead and add Limassol to your list. Just think of the blue sea, the sandy beach, the sun and the light breeze. Don’t you think it is the perfect backdrop to say “I do”?

This couple took their destination wedding, sprinkled in a whole lot of romance and covered it in a blue hue. They decided there was no place better to get married than in Limassol, at the Amathus Beach Hotel.

What can be more romantic than a wedding ceremony in the gardens of a luxurious hotel overlooking the Mediterranean sea, under an arch of hydrangeas and roses. Classical music was playing over the murmur of waves, while the couple celebrated their love for each other.

For the dinner party, the couple chose the newly renovated ballroom with a panoramic view of the sea. The table setting was well thought-out and embraced blue specially-made napkins, glass charger plates, crystal glasses, blue and white floral arrangements, mirrors and candles. As a keepsake of the marvelous event, an animal-themed espresso cup was gifted to each guest to remember this special day. After having a bite from the eccentric animal themed wedding cake and once the music started, everyone gathered around the dance floor and partied until the early hours.

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.
