Abbie and lee are a fabulous, fun, and very creative couple. We enjoyed shooting this wedding and sprung some of our own unique ideas into the mix too. Lee owns and runs Boundless Ink, a tattoo parlour, and Abbie owns and runs The Colourbox, a hairdressing company.
The wedding had a relaxed Bohemian Grecian theme with eucalyptus and dusky pink peony coloured flowers that complimented the Bride’s tattoos perfectly.
We began the day at Greco villas, in Protaras, where the lads were playing table football. The fun started there with Lee (almost) being thrown in the pool.
Later we went to Abbie and the ladies, over at the Hotel Napa Suites in Ayia Napa. Abbie was so chilled and looked just beautiful. Once the hair and makeup were finished, we did a little reveal of the Bride using the hotels lift. Abbie then had a quick bridal shoot in the hotel foyer.
The bridal party was taken to the wedding ceremony on Sirens Beach in Ayia Thekla in a lovely vintage car, where the groom, Lee, was nervously awaiting them on this really warm July day.
The Registrar really helped make the day memorable with his Cypriot charm and whit. He even made Lee wait before he could give Abbie her first kiss. After the wedding, we did some group photos and had a quick photoshoot with Abbie and Lee on Poseidon beach.
As a surprise for the guests, Abbie had organised an open-topped bus to get them to the reception venue. The couple chose the Polyxenia Isaak Restaurant in Pernera, where the next surprise of the wedding happened. Abbie had commissioned a very special custom-made cake especially for her husband Lee. The cake was a replica of her husband’s Nissan Skyline drift car, Lee’s face was a picture.
Lee and Abbie then put their trust in us for the next hour. We had organised a very surprise photoshoot at the Blood Brothers Tattoo and Piercing Studio in Aya Napa. And then went off to Cape Greco National park to catch the sunset.
We returned back to the restaurant for the evening party, and a last fun surprise photo.
Abbie and Lee… First up, congratulations on your IVF journey, you’re going to be fabulous parents! We loved shooting your wedding, thank you for trusting us to be creative with you both. We wish you and your family the very best for the future.
