Today we’re sharing the simple and timeless wedding of Michelle and Oscar in Cyprus. The cute couple came from Hong Kong to get married in Cyprus because of its beauty, the friendly local people and the elegantly simple life that they live. The ceremony and reception took place in Lefkara, a mountainous village where everything is more traditional. The picturesque narrow streets and the fields of this place were ideal backgrounds for some awesome couple’s shots! They chose Town square in Tochni for dinner reception which was decorated with rustic and authentic Cypriot elements with some Asian touches. The result was so personal, simple and traditional and it was all captured by Antonis Georgiadis Photography!
“We met in Hong Kong where everyone meets everyone. He proposed on my birthday 2 years ago. As I was waking up, he excitedly asked me to guess what he got for me”, the bride shared with us.
“We visited Cyprus a few years prior to the wedding. It was around the end of Summer when tourists were scarce. We just love how friendly local people are and how elegantly simple life is portrayed in the little villages that are dotted around the island.”
“Initially we were planning to order my wedding dress from a shop but in the end it we decided to design a completely custom-made dress, both white and red “Qipao” dress by two different Hong Kong tailors.”
“My wedding was characterized by simplicity, timelessness and merriment. It may sound strange, but I did not have any idea what I was looking for a week from the wedding. It was pure luck that owner of the bakery for my wedding cake was nice enough to introduce us to her favorite florist. Even though we could barely communicate with the florist, it was after he offered us his homemade lemonade and biscuits that I put my trust in him. There was no way a man with such good taste in biscuit could screw up my wedding bouquet. So, I told him I wanted the bouquet to radiate colors of spring and summer, vibrant yet soft, and in general not too rigid or standard.”
“Decoration had to match the Cyprus environment which is rustic and authentic but we added some Asian touches; lucky cat and vish. Both symbols for good fortune. I found inspiration and ideas through blogs and Pinterest.”
“My advice to a bride-to-be is to keep it simple.”
