My Beautiful, Sunny, Cypriot Wedding 28th May 2012

Well I do plan on doing a full report, but I thought I would share with you all a couple of photos of our big day as I loved seeing this when I was planning my own wedding,

This is my planning report, so will give you background:

We got married in Paphos, Cyprus on 28th May 2012. We married at St. Pauls Pillar Church in the Centre of Paphos, and then had our reception at a place called Vasilias, which is up towards the hills about 25 minutes outside of Paphos. It was an amazing day, which flew by. The sun shone brightly although we did get a few drops of rain, which I didn't personally see but its supposed to be good luck. Here are some piccies!!

This is just as I had got to the altar in the church, I was so happy and excited to see everyone and my very smart groom!!!

This was after the ceremony, everyone wanted to see my shoes, including the photographer!! My fab (bubblegum) smelling Vivienne Westwood shoes!!

We then went off to the beachfront for some photos just the 2 of us while our guests made their way to Vasilias for welcome drinks.

Love this one. When I woke up I was gutted it looked cloudy, it wasnt too bad in the end, but the clouds in this photo really make for a dramatic scene!!

And this is at Vasilias, with our cake which was so tasty. My favourite were the cupcakes made with real Cyprus lemons!!

Will try and do a full report soon!!! xxx

    I organised the wedding myself. I got married in Church in Paphos, then Vasilias. I reckon the wedding part not including the holiday cost about 7 grand, which included dress, accessories, admin, decorations everything. But to be honest we didn't keep a budget tracker as such so this is a guesss. xxx
  • Wow! You dress is so scarily similar to mine with the one shoulder, the middle section & the bottom!

    Only the top part looks different! Much more blingy, I love it! Hadn't seen many dresses like the one I chose so this was a nice surprise! Love love love your shoes! image

  • My boyfriend and I have just booked our wedding for September 2013 in Paphos, Cyprus. We have also chosen to get married in Agia Kyriaki, it is so exciting looking at your photos. At the moment I feel a bit overwhelmed planning it all. How did you get all the table decorations/favors etc over? xxx

    Hi All,

    Thanks for the lovely kind comments. I have just written my full report, and need to add photos to it one evening this week, then will promise to post it.

    We sent boxes of items over via courier to the hotel, and to Vasilias.

    Don't be overwhelmed, take a step back and tackle things one at a time xx
  • Ah this is just gorgeous, thank you for sharing your pics!

    Put a smile on my face!

    Love Island Cakes. Jackie Kulflik and her daughter Jo are completely fab. They have a facebook page and a website if you google it. They were yummy. The lemon cupcakes made with real Cypriot lemons were my favourite!!! Yum xxx
  • Your wedding looks amazing! It's making me so excited about mine! I'm choosing a cake from Love Island cake but didn't realise that they did gorgeous little cupcakes (lemon flavour is my favourite too). Can't wait to see your full report image
