There can be few better days than when two of your greatest friends get hitched. So when Jessica and Andy said yes to each other, we were super stoked! The next thing we knew, they’d also said yes to us being their Kouklia wedding photographer. Capturing the love of two people we love has us grinning behind the camera all day – count us in!
Even better, Jess and Andy chose the super cool, effortlessly romantic Liopetro wedding venue, a favourite of ours as a Kouklia wedding photographer. We were ready to rock this for two of our favourite people in the world. Today, we’re here to share every awesome moment with you. Enjoy!
Loved up at Liopetro
Invitations to be a couple’s Liopetro wedding photographer are some of our very favourite. The vistas here are just dreamy, from intimate corners warmed with bright bougainvillea blooms and the golden tones of stone. To the wide open, desert like spaces that become a whole new world as golden hour arrives.
But enough about why we love Liopetro as a Cyprus wedding photographer. Here’s why Jessica and Andy fell for this location too.
“As we live in Cyprus, we are spoilt for choice when it comes to wedding venues,” explains Jessica. “But Liopetro stole our hearts. As soon as we walked in, we knew it was where we wanted to get married. Everything about it was beautiful! The owners Makis and Ifinegnia made us feel so welcome and couldn’t do enough to make our day absolutely perfect.”
Finding the one
“My dress was A-line, full lace with a café ivory underskirt to make the lace stand out,” smiles Jessica. “It had buttons from the middle of the back, running down the train of the dress. There was a satin belt with crystal detail.”
The bridesmaids subtly echoed the look in dusty rose A-line chiffon designs, colour coordinated with the groomsmen’s ties.
For Andy, a stylish two-piece from Taylor and Wright was the order of the day, with the signature dusty rose tie to bring the wedding party together.
Saying ‘I do’
The couple tied the knot in the glorious Cyprus sunshine beneath a flower-laden arch at Liopetro.
“Saying ‘I do’ while gazing out over the Mediterranean Ocean and seeing Andy so emotional when I walked down the aisle were highlights of the day,” reminisces Jessica. “It was perfect having all our closest family and friends watch us become husband and wife.”
The colour of love
As a top Kouklia wedding photographer, we love to get creative with our couples for once-in-lifetime portraits that are totally authentic. Jessica and Andy were no different, stepping out for some sizzling sunset portraits, as well as some experimental and totally whimsical images with softly coloured smoke flares.
Liopetro has a fantastic reputation as a foodie Cyprus wedding venue and for Jessica and Andy’s wedding, they hit all the right notes. First came a laid-back barbecue sizzling with flavour.
“It was full of fresh salads, traditional dips, a great variety of meats, whole fresh salmon, potatoes and not to mention the fantastic choice of desserts. We chose the BBQ menu as it had such great variety and it catered for all different dietary requirements our guests needed,” Jessica and Andy recommend.
“Over dinner, I had such a lovely surprise!” Jessica adds. “Andy and Aimie had arranged between themselves for Aimie to sing an acoustic set over dinner as a surprise for me. It was amazing. Our guests thought it was such a lovely touch and loved it as much as we did.”
Choosing their Kouklia wedding photographer
“I get to work alongside Nick and Aimie,” explains Jessica, “so I get to see first hand how incredible these guys are at what they do. So when we got engaged there was no doubt in our minds about who we wanted to capture our special day.”
Emotion, authenticity and a touch of the epic – these are the hallmarks of what we capture as Kouklia wedding photographers, but the magic comes from you! It’s all about capturing the essence of the day so the photos give you butterflies, or make the hairs on your arms stand on end.
Fancy this for your dream day? Get in touch! We’d love to join you on this heart-stopping journey and document the day for years to come.
