What do you get when your sister is a pretty amazing wedding photographer? Effortlessly beautiful wedding portraits, all taken with so much heart and care that they completely convey the feelings of love you have had for each other since you first met. That’s what. Honestly, I nearly melted when I first saw these images of Becky and Kenny’s wedding in Cyprus last summer, they are just too gorgeous for words and capture a beauty to Cyprus that I have never seen before. The talented lady responsible for all this loveliness is Kate from Depict Photography, who Becky also asked to be her bridesmaid on the day! I’ve never seen anyone to multitask this well before! Becky looked dazzling in her Jenny Packham gown and in the evening, changed into a shorter dress that looked so fresh and summery, perfect for a destination wedding!

Becky and Kenny are just so laid back and easy going. It took five years to get from proposal to wedding day but Becky explains why…

“Myself and Kenny actually met at secondary school and dated for a while. After school we followed very different paths but these crossed again in our early 20s. After being together again for a year Kenny proposed whilst we were on holiday in the Dominican Republic. It was an amazing holiday and we were so excited on our return but I was still at university and planning a wedding was not really on the cards straight away. Once uni was finished real life kicked in and a combination of looking for jobs and moving into our new home meant shelving the wedding plans again. My sister who was engaged during this time had a very different approach and was married within a year. Wanting to give my parents at least 1 stress free year between our two weddings, we finally set a date in 2011. Five years after the proposal!”

“I have been visiting Cyprus with my parents for most of my life. When I was very young I used to say I wanted to be married in the church up on the hill at the back of our apartment. I was so happy when Kenny agreed that it would be a perfect place to marry. Obviously we couldn’t get married in the church but there is a ceremony space just below the church which was ideal.”

“Luckily my wedding was so stress free and probably the only thing I really struggled with was choosing flowers. I had seen so many beautiful examples of bouquets on blogs and in magazines but when I went to look at examples in Cyprus everything seemed very old fashioned. I found Georgiou and liaised with him through email on the lead up to the wedding. I was so amazed by what he did. He was so lovely and created exactly what I was after.”

“Photography was always going to play a big part in our day. Firstly because we not only wanted to document the day but also get a feel for Cyprus as well. Secondly we were lucky lots of people were able to travel out with us for the wedding, but many including my elderly grandmother and Kenny’s dad were not able to join us. Because of this we knew the photos would be really important to share with our family on our return. Luckily for us my sister, Kate, is a wedding photographer. She runs Depict Photography and primarily shoots film which I love. We were more than happy to leave it up to her to photograph our trip in her way and we loved how she was able to capture not just the wedding celebration but the boat trip and the pretty details around where we stayed. I probably made her job a little harder by asking her to be a bridesmaid as well – I knew it would mean less coverage of the day than usual but I really wanted her to spend some time not behind the camera. In the evening before we went out for a family meal we spent an hour down by the sea. At this point I had changed into my shorter dress and Kate had made me a new headpiece for the evening out of her bridesmaid flowers. This was one of my favourite times during the day as we were able to spend some quiet time together and really take in the fact that we were FINALLY married!”

“One of our favourite things we had on the day was the ‘chicken bus’ that transported all the guests to the different venues. Lefteras dressed in his traditional Cypriot clothes and became a big part of the day. Everyone had so much fun. We also went on a boat trip before the wedding so that all the guests could spend some time together and get to know each other more. This was another highlight and was such a relaxing way to spend time with our friends and family.”
