If you were ever looking to find the perfect fairytale-like setting for your wedding, this gorgeous location in Cyprus you are about to see …is beyond imaginable. The olive grove wedding of Jasmine and David has everything that makes my wedding loving heart skip a beat: the gorgeous flower arrangements with deep colors, the stunning organic details, the handsome couple surrounded by their loving friends and family in a circular ceremony setting… and the Edison bulb lighting (one my most favorite fall wedding trends!) that created such a magical vibe. All this captured with pure perfection by Antonis Georgiadis.
The bride shared about the wedding style:”It was black tie and wanted it to feel very elevated but not pretentious in any way. We wanted everything to feel authentic to the location we were in and merely enhance our beautiful surroundings by working with great lighting in the trees, natural wooden chairs and tables, wild flowers – all the tones were more neutral with little pops of color”
“My dress was by Monique Lhuillier and I bought it in London at Browns Bride. I wanted something light, which I could move in, that would make me feel like myself and look like me. It also felt perfect for the setting, and all worked well together, which I think is something to consider and bare in mind when trying on a dress. It had layers of very light tulle with some soft beading underneath which sparkled in the night-lights… I loved it! I did change into a shorter dress from Christopher Kane and some sneakers to have a dance in later on – didn’t want to feel restricted in any way and wanted to fully enjoy the dancing!”
“We met in London through mutual friends in 2006 and he proposed in October 2014. We were away in the Somerset countryside for the weekend, and went for a sunset walk up Cley Hill, accompanied by our french bulldog… he proposed at the top of the hill as we watched our dog playing – was very special to us…”
“We had a very clear idea of what we wanted, but also had an amazing planner to help us make that come true. If you know what you want, don’t be afraid to say it and stick to it…everyone will have opinions, and of course need to listen when warranted, but is your day and should make sure it’s everything you dream of and want. For me, the most important was to not dwell too long on decisions and to just make a choice and move on…otherwise you’ll drive yourself crazy and waste time on the small stuff”.
“My father is from Cyprus, and my parents have been living there full time for the past 10 years. I have been going to Cyprus since I’m 6 months old and wanted to bring everyone we love to this special place and show them a different & unique experience and a blending of both our cultures”
The olive grove wedding took place at the idyllic forest of Delikipos in Cyprus.
“This is a hard one but I don’t think there is any one decision that stands out – apart of course from picking a great planner who totally understood us and what we wanted to achieve from the very beginning – have to say that is key! She introduced us to wonderful people who were all so invested in the success of our day and gave us so much support! Don’t feel like we made any bad decisions to be honest…everything worked out for the best and very well”.I absolutely love this stunning flower arrangement with Cafe au Lait Dahlias, English Roses, berries and blue thistle.
“The best moment of the wedding day to be honest it was being surrounded by all the people we love the most in the world and being able to dance and laugh together until the early hours! We were also able to have a lot of time together, dancing and stealing the odd moment here and there…An extra bonus was having everyone recount stories and tell us how much fun they all had the next day at brunch!”
“It’s difficult to pick one detail, as all together it was so magical and wasn’t down to any one thing but we really loved the lights hanging from the trees and having candles everywhere – I’m a big believer that lighting completely changes the mood and atmosphere of a space. Also loved the Polaroid photos we asked everyone to take of themselves to replace with the name card/seating assignments they picked up…looking forward to creating a special framed collage of these!”
