Close your eyes and picture this: Warm lapping waves, tranquil evening sunshine dancing off of crystal clear water, and endless stretches of shimmering white sand. Just imagining the beach can instantly relax the mind, open the heart, and refresh the soul. It is this feeling of peace and openness, first and foremost, that makes the beach an idyllic wedding location: As soon as we set foot on the warm sand and stare out over the ocean, we leave our everyday troubles and cares behind us. Standing before the endless horizon, we feel as though our hearts are free to soar. They are unfettered and ready to completely embrace the love we feel for our partner.

The phrase, “They were high school sweethearts…” prefaces many great love stories, and the tale behind this wedding photography at Aphrodite Hills resort is one of them: Alicia and Nicky met when they were just 16 and started stealing shy glances at each other from across classrooms. Soon, their initial flirtations were followed up with regular dates, the thrill of going to dances as an official couple, and the nervousness and excitement of meeting each other’s parents.

In recent years, a strong trend for “back to basics” weddings has emerged: Whether it’s a simple modern ceremony or a small, deeply traditional family affair, more and more people are veering away from large, luxurious weddings. The reasons for this are understandable: Most of us are already busy, habitually stressed out, and short on funds. Naturally, we want our weddings to be enjoyable—not a cause of more stress!

We learn a lot in college—and not necessarily from books. We learn how to become more authentic and true to ourselves as, for the first time, we experience life away from the expectations of our parents. We learn how to build bonds of brotherhood and sisterhood with strangers, sharing our life experiences with them as we share dorm rooms. We experience new places, new perspectives, and sometimes… We even fall in love. In this case, it was the kind of love that leads to everlasting wedding photography in Ayia Napa and a lifetime of happiness beyond it.

Over and over again, we’re warned about the dangers of office romances: What if stress from the workplace creeps into the relationship and ruins it? What if the romance ends and you have to go through the pain of seeing your ex every day at work? What if it appears unprofessional and ends up harming your career?

For Ron and Sharon, sensible dictums like those above prevailed for the first year after they met. Adhering to a strict professional code of conduct, Sharon only exchanged pleasantries and work-related information with her handsome new boss, Ron. Though they took on challenges and solved problems together every week, the idea that she’d one day be looking up at Ron during an emotional wedding at Royal Apollonia hotel was the furthest thing from Sharon’s mind. She and Ron were a good team—nothing more, nothing less.

In my time working as a wedding photographer here in Cyprus, I’ve witnessed a stunning diversity of celebrations from around the world. As you know (if you’ve been following my blog for a while), I’ve been to Asian weddings, Indian weddings, Romanian weddings, Lebanese weddings, and many more. I’ve been amazed and humbled at the way that love connects people around the globe… And I’ve been surprised by just how many of them end up celebrating here in my native Cyprus, even though they are from thousands of miles away. However, as wonderful as all of that is, it’s rare that I get to take pictures of a traditional Cypriot wedding within this global millieu.

For untold centuries, cultures around the world have been enraptured with the symbolism of twins—the idea that two people born on the same day can share a deep spiritual connection. We delight in stories of long lost twins, separated at birth, who go on to find one another again; we daydream about the possibility of finding our soul’s mirror in a passing stranger. But are such mysterious bonds really possible, especially between two people who aren’t related to one another?

Tamir’s life-altering journey began months before the Jewish wedding ceremony at St. George Paphos pictured below: Comfortably living in London, he had no idea fate was about to throw a bit of divine inspiration his way in the form of Daniella…

I didn’t have the chance to learn much about Catalina and Cosmin—the young Romanian couple at the centre of this dreamy wedding at Pernera Beach Hotel—before I arrived to photograph them. I only knew that, like many people scattered throughout Europe, they had been so drawn to Cyprus’s sunny shores and rolling hills that they decided to get married here. I was therefore able to let my imagination fly free, to get lost in my own artistic impressions and inspiration as I photographed their ceremony.

Life is better with your best friend… That’s why I married mine.” -Unknown

What comes to mind when we think of the ‘perfect’ marriage? It’s not the wild suspense and rapture of courtship; instead, it’s the solidity and reliability of two people who are always there for one another. It is late-night conversations and confidences; it’s a helping hand to lift us up when we’re down or take a share of the work when we’re overburdened. It’s trust, loyalty, and affection incarnate—it’s the knowledge that you have a best friend for life.
