Probably one of the liveliest weddings we have ever experienced, the ceremony of Eleni and Stavros had everything: tradition, ideal photoshoot angles, fun and hundreds of happy people.
The couple started their day surrounded by elite designer clothing and plenty of smiling faces. The friends of Stavros stuck to tradition by shaving him and dancing with his clothes inside a big basket named “chestos”. Eleni chose a natural bride apparel for the big day. She wore a rather discreet wedding dress with flower laces. She then took one of her shoes and wrote the names of her female friends on the sole. According to local tradition, if one’s name was rubbed off the sole during the day, she would soon get married too. The dog of the family was also present at this festive occasion and even had the chance to pose with the happy bride!
The wedding took place at Agioi Anargiroi church in Nicosia. After a highly emotional ceremony, the newlyweds headed for the reception hall accompanied by a joyful crowd of guests.
The reception was held at Occhio Nicosia, a renowned event venue. Gloo and Ooshy wedding planners organized everything perfectly. The attention to detail was evident everywhere, from the furry lights to the gold underplates and the innovative geometric cake.
Markos DJ stood behind the decks and offered a truly swinging night to everybody. All the people crammed at the maze dance floor. The more brave could also visit a photobooth for some strange pictures. Free wine for guests was available at large amounts. Fortunately, everyone was given first aid kits with Evian water and analgesic pills, in order to cope with the hangover!
A few days later Eleni and Stavros had an Ayia Napa photoshoot with us. Standing next to a small chapel by the seaside, the two enamored people gave us the chance for some really expressive snapshots.
