The gorgeous Jade and Andy tied the knot in June this year at the beautiful chapel on the grounds of Aphrodite Hills Intercontinental Hotel in Paphos, Cyprus.
Having met 3 and a half years previously through mutual friends, the newlyweds spent their first holiday together in Cyprus, and after getting engaged in Marrakech, Morocco 2 years ago, knew that sunny Cyprus was where they wanted to spend their special day.
Jade says “It’s such a stunning spot for a wedding and we couldn’t wait to show it to all our guests”, and the couple were lucky enough to share their day with 75 of their family and friends, who flew out to Cyprus for the occasion.
The Style and Decor
The style throughout their wedding day exudes romance and rustic vintage, with a touch of Grecian influence in the bridesmaids’ hairstyles and floor-length multi-way gowns – from pastel florals to soft grays – the decor is subtle, and yet captivating.
The stunning hand tied Bridal bouquet and bridesmaid posies, by Paris at Enchanted Flower Lounge, are breath-taking and the perfect balance of blush and ivory against the soft gray dresses – whilst bringing a burst of colour to Jade’s Bridal look, with a mix of blush pink and ivory roses and peonies.
The same floral design is carried on throughout the ceremony and reception decor, with the added touch of these beautiful, huge rustic lanterns, as well as lilac orchids, white hydrangeas and peach roses to complement the romantic style of their day.
Their rustic -style, 3-tier wedding cake featured a gray and burlap ribbon with an adorable ‘top hat’ and ‘floral garland/veil’ cake topper from Etsy. If you’re looking for something similar, take a look here.
The Bridal Party Look
I love the relaxed, casual, but smart style of the Bridal party, especially the royal blue blazers that work so well with the grays, blush pinks and ivory throughout the rest of the Bridal party. Andy and his ushers all had their outfits tailor made especially for the Wedding by Charles Samuel Tailors. If you’re going to get married in Cyprus, why not wear shorts?! And how gorgeous (and in-style!) is Jade and Andy’s 18 -month-old son, and page boy, Leo with his braces and smart page boy outfit?!
Jade’s Bridal Look
Two months before their wedding, Jade decided to change her wedding gown when she found the beautiful ‘Papillon’ by Jenny Packham at a shop in her neighbouring village and what a perfect choice it was – she looks absolutely stunning in this gorgeous design – the perfect dress for a wedding abroad.
Jade and her bridesmaids’ hair and make up was done by the fantastic and talented Alisha Owen – Tips and Toes Cyprus – who comes highly recommended and is excellent at what she does. Jade kept her look natural and elegant, with her hair down, a small plait to the side, and some added detail with an embellished headband.
Jade and Andy had the fantastic Blue Jar jazz duo for their ceremony and cocktail reception and had a bit of fun with their guests with a wedding photo booth!
