Peonies & Waves: A Wedding Editorial in Cyprus
A beautiful resort tucked away among rolling hills and vineyards peeks out from behind majestic cypresses, bougainvillaeas, and Jacaranda trees, lush gardens and palms, an opulent yet soft and serene vibe all around the shores of Pissouri Bay in Cyprus became the perfect grounds where the Founders of The Secret Owl Workshop and Splendid Events Cyprus drew inspiration from to design and create an editorial shoot brimming with elegant details and coral peonies.
Wishing to portray the feeling of sophistication and refined celebration for the modern bride and groom the pebbled shore was softened with a billowing drape gazebo where delicate flatware and colourful fabrics added a quintessential summer feel.
Artful details were designed into the paper goods that included a hand-drawn illustration of the resort itself. The bride began her preparations with a refined boudoir session before slipping into a stunning wedding gown by Berta, which was soft and feminine with a touch of drama.
Butterflies were incorporated into the boudoir shoot, a nod to the day’s exuberance and to match the gorgeous butterfly slingbacks by Sophia Webster. The bride’s hair was delicately braided and pinned into an effortlessly romantic updo, and fairytale pieces by Naturae Design added to the charm and romantic mood.
For the floral elements, the designers created pieces that felt gleeful and relaxed, feminine and timeless. The bouquet was finished with a blend of soft muted cream and blush ribbons.
The portraits sessions followed smooth walks in the verdant gardens and long shoreline, with a gourmet buffet display filled with delicious sea-food treats, majestic big and smaller cakes and confections.
As the light went down on the beach a lush installation of crystal chandeliers set a dreamy atmosphere with toasts in absolute style!
