As you’ll probably recall if you follow my photography adventures here on my blog, a couple of months ago I photographed a wonderfully friendly, relaxed couple named Elena and Constantinos for their wedding.

As it turns out, at the time of Constantinos’ wedding, his sister Valentini was pregnant with Kyriakos, her and her husband Nikolas’ first son, and this resulted in me getting a surprise phone call from Constantinos. To my delight, he wanted me to come and photograph the christening of his new baby nephew and Godson at the Archangelos Michail church here in Nicosia.

A FAMILY PHOTO SESSION IN NICOSIA WITH DOROS, NATALIE & ARIANNA | THE MIRACLE OF LIFE

Most people love babies: They’re cute, cuddly, happy, and embody the essence of human innocence. At the same time, however, few of us really pause to consider the full impact of the miracle of life—until, like the subjects of this family photo session in Nicosia, we have children of our own.

Doros and Natalie, who you may remember from this wedding editorial shoot, thought they had discovered what love meant: They had found that with patience and tenderness, past hurts can be healed and trust can grow, creating the kind of open, verdant inner landscape where passion flourishes and two adults, bound together by the enigmatic power of love, can finally grow into their full potential. Indeed, this beautiful young couple thought they had it all: Their health, a wonderful marriage, a happy home, and a bright future… Then came baby Arianna, and Doros and Natalie learned—all over again—that love can be more full, more moving, and more real than they had ever dreamed possible.

“Just when you think that you have everything, suddenly this magic moment happens,” Natalie explained to me during the family photo session in Nicosia shown below, “No words can describe the love that parents feel for their child. This love is beyond anything else in this world. We wish that everyone can have the chance to give life… It’s just the ultimate feeling…” Here, she drifted off dreamily, mere words being unable to convey the magic and wonder that falls over her when she holds her beautiful baby in her arms.

If you’re questioning the value of marriage, let this wedding at the Elysium Hotel change your mind. Far from being a dying tradition, marriage is keeping love alive in our hectic modern world.

In this day and age, we’re inundated with cynical statistics and opinions regarding marriage; it’s expensive, claim the naysayers. It’s stressful to plan. Sometimes, marriages end. “Why then,” ask so many young people, “Do we still get married at all?”

Lost in this jaded rhetoric, too many of us lose sight of the meaning of marriage. Marriage is so much more than just a ceremony and a legal contract between you and your partner. It’s about more than a dress, a suit, and a church; it’s even about more than the many beautiful memories you will preserve with your wedding photographs.

Take, for example, this wedding at the Elysium Hotel here in Paphos, Cyprus. Even though I didn’t know a great deal about Barbora and Omar when I met them—only that he is from Morocco, she is from Slovakia, and they both now live in Dubai—as I photographed their wedding, I knew I was watching the true magic of marriage in action. As Omar strode through the door of the reception hall holding Barbora in his arms, as is the tradition in Slovakia, I was reminded that marriage is not just about binding two people, it’s about binding together cultural traditions in a way that has united whole civilizations.

Engaging in christening photography in Cyprus is always a real blessing for me as a photographer, but when I get to experience the joy of a couple whom I have met before as they move from being newlyweds to first-time parents, my heart becomes especially full. Such was the case with this beautiful photo shoot, which took place at the Agios Georgios in the Kato Polemidia part of Limassol. I was invited to photograph the christening of Xristos and Marina’s beautiful new baby, Christina; if you have been following this blog for a while, you will know that a few years ago, I photographed Xristos and Marina’s wedding in a beautiful winery in Paphos area of Cyprus.

CHRISTENING PHOTOGRAPHY IN CYPRUS | THE JOY OF CHRISTINA’S CHRISTENING

Have you ever walked down the street, or found yourself at a big party, looking at the sea of faces before you while wondering if one of those strangers could be your true love—the person you are fated to one day meet and fall for? Have you ever picked a certain face or brushed someone’s hand, and thought of what life would be like with that person if they were “the one”?

For most of us, such flights of the imagination are no more than a pleasant daydream, a modern-day fairytale where our prince might one day emerge from the crowd to rescue us from a dropped shopping bag or fly-away umbrella, or our princess might be found through a chance encounter with friends of friends… Surely, we tell ourselves, such fairytales only come true in movies; today, they are only stories being revised from times long past when heroism, romance, and courtship inspired everything from epic poetry to wild elopements that defied the feuds of medieval families.

If you feel that way, this modern wedding in Limassol might change your mind: Stephen and Natalia, the beautiful couple gracing the images below, bumped into each other fully a year before they actually “met” properly. One day, Natalia unexpectedly encountered some friends, and they hurriedly introduced her to Steve. Natalia moved on, the new stranger becoming only a hint of a pleasant memory… Until yet another friend, who had not been present at the initial introduction (and who had been out of touch for a long while) one day called Natalia out of the blue. “There’s this guy at my work,” the friend said, “And he seems made for you! You have to go on a date with him!”

Natalia laughed it off—what a crazy idea! But her friend just wouldn’t drop it. Finally, after two whole months of persuasion, Natalia caved in to her friend’s insistence and agreed to meet this “perfect” mystery man. Thunderstruck, Natalia found herself face to face with Steve once more.

A MODERN WEDDING IN LIMASSOL | THE FAIRYTALE WEDDING OF NATALIA & STEPHEN

Today, there are as many ways to have a wedding as there are unique couples; one can choose a carefree Bohemian celebration, full of eclectic little touches, smiling faces, and dancing; one can choose something edgy, minimalist, and modern; one can invite one’s extended family and friends or elope to a tropical island… In this modern era, there is no “wrong” way to get married, so long as the couple involved is passionate, committed, and very much in love.

While this is exciting for me as a wedding photographer—I get to shoot many different scenes, in many different styles—during a recent elegant wedding at Apokryfo here in Cyprus, I was reminded that there’s something to be said for tradition. As you can see from the photographs, the bride (a lovely Ukranian lady by the name of Anastasia) and groom (a charming Russian-Cypriot,  Philippos) spared no detail in adhering to those time-honoured rituals that make a wedding beautiful aesthetically, emotionally, and spiritually. From the perfect rosettes on the wedding gown, to the flowers bedecking the venue, to the pristine curls of the bride, everything about this wedding carried a touch of grace.

While today we take the idea that children are sacred for granted—honouring them for their innocence, purity, honesty and vulnerability—this concept has not always been part of the bedrock of society.  It was largely introduced into the Western world by Christianity, after the teachings of Jesus Christ helped to instill a sense of equality and value for all life into the harsh societies of ancient Europe, where once only wealth and status gave a human life worth. Today, while such primitive times are long behind us, we carry on in our traditions the scared duty of cherishing new life.

The world “Love” is bigger then any borders or differences in this life, it finds a way and gets to you when not expected and makes you live the fairytale that goes beyond expectation and our couple lived this experience.


While today, D and M are a happy couple who have been going for seven years strong, no one would have guessed that these two would become so entwined. She—then a young girl who had just freshly entered the working world, all smiles and dreams immediately met a with the man who never thought will be the love of her life back then was just colleague. While she was still trying to get in the working atmosphere, he continually drove her to focus more, to work harder and achieve more it was a challenge that she accepted. Why did he have to push her so hard all of the time?

THE ROYAL APOLLONIA WEDDING OF D & M | UNLIKELY LOVE

During a recent wedding celebration at Apokryfo, a little hidden gem of a resort nestled in the ancient town of Lofou, I was reminded that the beauty of love is often best seen not in the garb of great luxury or the noise of fanfare, but rather in the simple joys provided by tradition, companionship, and the age-old pleasure of sharing good food and hearty laughter.

 This wedding—which belonged to a lovely couple named Helena and Jonathan, seen in the photographs below—called to mind strongly the old Bohemian ideals held by many of Europe’s wandering peoples: The pursuit of truth, beauty, and love in humble yet enchanting settings. The location of the celebration was a perfect fit for such themes; the Apokryfo (the name for which comes from the Greek word for “hidden away…..kept secret”
) is not just any hotel; it is a collection of old stone houses which have been lovingly restoredby the owners of the venue: local architect Vakis Hadjikyriacou and his interior designer wife, Diana.
 Into these houses they have put many hours of their own creative spirit, their own love.

A few years ago, as part of my work as a baptism photographer in Nicosia, I photographed the christening of a beautiful baby named Despina—the first child to be welcomed by a beaming young couple. This year, much to my surprise, I heard from them again—to my delight, I discovered that Despina now has a sibling, Chrisanti, whose christening needed to be photographed.


This, of course, was a momentous occasion—the baptism of a sibling represents not only one of the best days in a parent’s life, but also in the life of his or her children. It is the start of a beautiful lifelong relationship, one which enriches the whole family in ways too numerous to count: The attachment between siblings.
