Ayia kyriaki – Alexander the Great Paphos Cyprus Wedding Photographer
Francesca and Stephen chose Beziiqué to be their Ayia kyriaki – Alexander the Great Paphos Cyprus WeddingPhotographer, here is their story :
We met in 2013 when I went to buy a new car. Overcame the sweet talking car sales guy Stephen. We chatted back and forth for a while then he finally asked me out in December 2013. We wined and dined, traveled, lived the high life until August 2016 when he proposed. Then settled ourselves down (a little) ((I write this from Amsterdam ;) ))
Stephen proposed in Santorini on 25th August 2016. I thought he was getting the camera out of the bag so it was a big surprise. It really was amazing. My ring is a solitaire diamond brilliant cut 1.13 diamond!
Tell us about your dress:
My dress was purchased from a very good friend of mine- her boutique: peony bridal hillsborough, NI. This was a simple Sharon Hoey dress with Sharon hoey belt
The groom wore a three-piece suit from Andrew Watson, Belfast. This was a blue paisley print and embellished on the inner pocket was “Stephen and Francesca 23.08.17”
Tell us about t
We used Kerry from Cyprus Dream Weddings and Jane Summers from “Do me a favor”- where she made the hangers/ cigars/ fans
We really wanted a relaxed summer wedding (something you just can’t get at home) I knew I wanted to get married in a church and just fell in love with St Paul’s. We just relaxed all morning with Renoir doing hair and makeup (who were brilliant) then the Wilds came and started the craic up! The whole day was amazing, we both loved every minute. We had Davy and Aimee as our band who were SHAMAZING then a cheesy Dj afterward which I also wanted to get everyone up on the dance floor
What was the favorite part of your wedding day?
My favorite part of the wedding day was walking down the aisle. That magical butterfly in your tummy feeling is like nothing I have ever felt. Seeing all our guests faces so happy and I just felt so full of pride
The church is so stunning and simple with a lot of history. I liked the idea of Alexander being at the water with the terrace overlooking this
Food was BEAUT! From Alexander. Music was the amazing Davey and Aimie and our first dance was Al Green – let’s stay together. Stephen picked this (big pulp fiction fan lol)
Food/Music Evening Entertainment/ Dj / Fireworks:
We had a traditional Cypriot mezze style menu and the food was unbelievable. We had a mixture of grilled chicken, fillet steak, and pork. Our first dance was Wonderwall, not your typical first dance song but it meant a lot to us. We ended the night like a proper Scottish wedding all singing together loch Lomond. That’s when I got so emotional at how much it meant to us people traveling over to Cyprus to spend our special day with us.
Yes- go away. So enjoyable to be away with your closest friends and family. Intimate, relaxed, perfect.
Bah! They made the wedding!! All of our guests talked about them. Put us all at ease and the craic was flowing! I cried with laughter with them when they first came in to the room. They just bounce off each other and they have such a natural spark! I particularly enjoyed when we sang “wild thing” (at) them :))) lol
