As a Vasilias Cyprus wedding photographer, we are always totally stoked to return to this jaw-dropping venue for your dream destination Vasilias Inn wedding. Being a venue we already know and love, we’ve got the techniques locked down to really bring out the best in your wedding photos.
But, just like you, we’re an adventurous pair and no wedding shoot is ever the same. It’s all about creating unique images, capturing moments in time, just like we did for Hannah and Keith as their Vasilias Cyprus wedding photographer. Take a peek and be inspired for your destination wedding in Cyprus.
Jet, set, Cyprus!
Childhood friends turned lovers for a lifetime, Hannah and Keith jetted off from home in Scotland to tie the knot in the sun.
“We were originally going to get married at home but no venue we had seen had really captured our attention. So, out of curiosity we started looking at weddings abroad and the minute we came across Vasilias Nikoklis Inn we fell in love.”
“It was everything we wanted and we loved the fact it was a family owned venue with a history. Once we found they had a resident cat we were completely sold as we have three of our own!”
Finding the one
McDonald’s Kilts of Cyprus outfitted the groom in a traditional Scottish kilt, with a dried thistle buttonhole and a grey cravat to complement the bridesmaid dresses adding the finishing touch.
Hannah stunned in a fairy-tale ballgown design by Madeline Gardner New York with a sweetheart neckline.
“We were in the middle of posing for photos and I was incredibly warm in my dress (it had eleven layers to it!!),” explains Hannah. “In the middle of a photo I just said “I’m going to faint” and sat down.”
“Keith ran to get me water and whilst I was acting all dramatic and cinderella-esque, Nick snapped away. It was funny at the time and it’s nice to have the little quirks from our day in a format that we can remember forever.”
Grand or fleeting, planned or in-the-moment, we capture every part as your Vasilias Cyprus wedding photographer. Our photos send you flying back to the moment. They plunge you into all those amazing emotions all over again, in the gorgeous setting of your Vasilias Inn wedding.
Tying the knot
“We did a traditional handfasting after the ceremony while my dad did a reading,” reveals Hannah. “We were really keen that we had a touch of home during our whole wedding and the handfasting was a massive part of that.”
The bride also glided down the aisle at their Vasilias Inn wedding to Highland Cathedral, performed live on the bagpipes. It was awesome to see this couple bring their Scottish roots to their Cyprus ceremony.
“Vasilias Nikoklis Inn was just the dream location for us and that combined with the weather just made it so perfect in every way,” Hannah grins. “To walk under the greenery and through those wooden doors to Keith waiting for me was everything I imagined and more.”
The newlyweds and their guests tucked into a decadent barbecue created by the venue’s talented team.
“We opted not to have a cake but we did have the ice cream cart from Love Me Do and it went down a treat with our guests!”
“We loved that we had this option because we wanted the wedding to be quite relaxed and not too structured. Our guests could walk about with ice cream and some strawberry vodka or homemade lemonade (both Vasilias specialties), it was brilliant.”
As day turned to night, DJ Andy from Cyprus Events Company set the party soundtrack while Cypriot dancers from the Paphos Dancing Group filled the dance floor.
Choosing their Vasilias Cyprus wedding photographer
“We knew we were going to be picky about our photographers because we were very specific about the style of photography we wanted. After a browse on Facebook and the Cyprus Brides group we came across Beziique.”
“We had a look at their website and at their Instagram and became obsessed with their style and the images they captured. We contacted them hoping they had our date free and luckily for us – they did!”
“Beziique were so great in the run up to the wedding and even helped when we had some dilemmas that required the knowledge of people within the Cyprus wedding industry. Before our wedding we met up with Nick and it was like catching up with an old mate, we instantly took to him.”
“But the best is yet to come because on the day Nick and Aimie were amazing! Nick pretty much coordinated our whole day and made sure Keith knew what was going on and where he needed to be and when.”
A pawfect surprise
“Nick and Aimie both made us feel so at ease and we had a good laugh. All of our guests commented on how much they loved the photographers. The fact that they were kind enough to bring their dogs along to our reception was brilliant and we will forever be grateful to them. We are massive animal lovers and were gutted to leave our own black lab (Lola) at home while we got married.”
The Vasilias Cyprus wedding photographer experience doesn’t get more personalised than that! We had an epic time capturing the fun, energy and love at Hannah and Keith’s big day.
