Today I’d like to share some great wedding photography from Cyprus. It’s one of my this years most exciting weddings, so I couldn’t help myself to publish a little Sneak Peek of the Cypriot wedding I was invited to photograph this June! So the story goes like this, Yiannis is a great Cypriot guy who despite his good looks hate being photographed and everything that has to do with traditional wedding photography (you know, stuff like hundreds of staged group shots etc.) and Elena is a beautiful young lady who looks amazing in front of the camera (as you can see for yourselves below) and both these lovely people had decided to get married in a lovely Cypriot wedding ceremony (which is a lot different to what we have used to here in UK).
The mission for me was to do pure reportage photography in the Cypriot wedding ceremony and the wedding party which followed after two days (I like how these guys keep official stuff and drinking & dancing separated). Anyway, I was very happy that I had their dates still available and doing reportage wedding photography in Cyprus (where inviting 2000 or so people to a wedding is normal and everything happens more or less in nighttime), sounded to me like a great challenge to me! :)
Here’s just a few photos from both days of the Cyprus wedding. Much more to come in the next weeks so stay tuned. ..ohh, and visit Cyprus, it’s amazing! :)
And here comes some shots from the second part of the Cypriot wedding – eating and drinking followed by a huge party, definitely one of the wildest wedding parties I’ve ever seen.
Well, for the moment, that’s it from my Cyprus wedding photo reportage, but there’s much more to follow!
Overall I really enjoyed Cyprus – it’s amazingly beautiful and sunny, but what really makes this place special is it’s people. Cypriots are such a welcoming and warm people. There’s a lot to learn from them.
Yiannis & Elena, you are an amazing couple, thanks so much for having us and sharing your wedding day(-s) with us. I wish you all the love and happiness in the world!
P.S. I already can’t wait to visit Cyprus again!
