Imagine a place where you could combine the romance of old honey stone walls and vaulted archways, of olive and cypress trees swaying in the breeze, with a strikingly modern party space with wow-factor floor-to-ceiling glazing. Throw in perfect sunshine and natural backdrops, and it sounds too good to be true. But as a Minthis Hills wedding photographer, we know that this hidden gem venue in Cyprus makes the dream reality.
Prepare to be wowed as we share the story of Ellie and Jack’s dream Cyprus wedding.
Celebrating in Cyprus
“We were on holiday in Paphos, sitting watching the sunset with a carafe of sangria when Jack popped the question. It was simply stunning and we knew we had to get married in Cyprus!” Ellie gushes.
After jetting off to Paphos for their dream Cyprus wedding, Ellie and Jack made the most of every moment, beginning with their wedding morning. The bride and groom were pampered at The Annabelle Hotel, before cruising in a classic car to their breath-taking Minthis Hills wedding.
The bride stunned in a Kenneth Winston gown featuring lace and pearl embellishment, a layered tulle skirt and train. In a beautiful nod to the bride, the bridesmaids wore peach gowns embellished with pearls too, while the groom kept his look cool in attire from Reiss.
Discovering the Minthis Hills wedding dream
“With the help of Katie at Marry Me Cyprus, we chose a Minthis Hills wedding. We explained we wanted a rustic venue where the beauty of the place spoke for itself.”
Surrounded by sun-kissed stone buildings, romantic archways and enchanting courtyards, this venue ticked all the boxes for a stunning setting. We couldn’t wait to capture every experience and moment for Ellie and Jack as their Minthis Hills wedding photographer.
The romantic notes of the live saxophone echoed within the walls as family and friends gathered and the ceremony approached.
“I loved the emotion shown by our celebrant during the ceremony,” Ellie smiles. “It made the ceremony so much more personal and moving.”
The couple said I do beneath a canopy of blossom trees. Each chair was adorned with a white tie, pinned individually by pearls.
“The olive trees were dressed with glass votives and suspended heart-shaped ornaments,” Ellie adds, “as well as a swing covered in flowers and fairy lights – a stunning spot for pictures.”
Cocktails in the courtyard
The saxophonist’s upbeat tunes created the soundtrack to this couple’s cocktail hour, as guests mingled in the courtyard and shared congratulations.
“We swapped a traditional wedding cake for an ice cream cart at cocktail hour,” the couple add. Ellie and Jack opted for a gourmet buffet for their Minthis Hills wedding, created by the venue’s own catering team.
“The food was outstanding and suited everyone’s individual tastes,” they recommend. As the sun set, the couple stole away for stunning couple’s portraits at golden hour, before the DJ filled the dance floor into the small hours.
Choosing their Minthis Hills wedding photographer
“We chose Nick and Aimie at Beziique to be our Cyprus wedding photographer because of their high recommendations. After discovering they married at this venue too, it was a no brainer for us!” grin Ellie and Jack.
Safe to say we were totally stoked to play a part in another Minthis Hills wedding after experiencing the magic for our own.
“I think our favourite photo is also Nick and Aimie’s favourite,” the couple add. “It’s the shot of us in the trees with the sun setting and I’m in Jack’s arms.”
Natural beauty. Amazing light. Breath-taking venues. Paphos promises the perfect wedding that can be totally personal to you. If you’re feeling inspired and these images have your heart fluttering, get in touch and we might just become your Cyprus wedding photographer too!
