Andrea and Philip met at university, whilst studying really hard in Starbucks. When we heard about this, we surprised the couple with a little Starbucks shoot in a corner of the hotel; we supplied the cups, etc. These are the little things we do to make a day special. The couple loved getting a moment alone!
Philip thought Andrea was hot (his words, not ours!), whilst Andrea thought Philip was nice, and noticed that he spoke out for people, trying to include everyone.
So the couple met in Belfast, but Andreas’ roots are in Cyprus, which is where they married. We love a wedding with a local flavour.

Watch the stunning highlight video
The ceremony completed by the newlyweds being crowned King and Queen of their home, with the placing of ribbon joined Stefana (crowns) on their heads. The ribbon symbolising unity and the everlasting bind between a Bride and Groom.
After placing the Stefana, the Koumpara (Maid of honour) performed the Kapnistiri ritual, using a Censer to bless the wedding with smoke.
After a sunset shoot, Andrea and Philip joined the wedding guests for the evening reception, overlooking the sea, in the lovely Rondaval venue, found just by the beach within the resort.
A firework display rounded the day off,with the couple viewing on the beach.
We give our sincere congratulations to Andrea and Philip. Thank you for trusting us to be part of your wedding and holding your nerve in this crazy year. Al the best for your future together.
Lots of love,
Richard, Elizabeth and the team here at The Cyprus Wedding Photographer.
