Paphos Cyprus Wedding Inspiration.
For certain couples, an intimate wedding experience is ideal and this styled shoot at the Villa Kapistris Dyo, in Paphos, Cyprus, proves sometimes the best celebrations are small and sweet. With enough room to house several guests and host a wedding, this villa-inspired shoot entices couples to reconsider their small wedding plans to include an extended celebration with loved ones all in one location.
The colors of this shoot are varied and dynamic with gold metallic, natural tones and pretty pastels just in time for spring.
And cream-colored Badgley Mischka stilettos are the perfect shoes for the bride to walk in as she floats down the villa’s staircase.
The invitation suite features a unique blend of rustic and vintage-inspired touches. From black wax stamps to torn parchment to the image of the venue, no detail was left unnoticed for guests.
Florals in punchy colors like yellow and dark pink, and loads of blush and white are all centered around a lush bed of greenery in both the centerpiece and the bride’s bouquet.
Atop the villa’s terrace, the bride shows off the back of her long, flowing gown. She places a shawl around her arms and sports a braided hairstyle with wavy curls.
Her first look is simple and carefree. A high neckline and long sleeves give way to a simple and clean flowing skirt – a skirt perfect for twirling.
In a style with ease, the groom wears a gray suit, white button down shirt, and a white floral boutonniere. Dark blue shoes and a coiffed hairstyle complete his look.
Before seeing the groom, the bride changes into a bateau neckline gown and pulls her curls halfway back. Her natural makeup is idyllic in the early afternoon light.
A reception table with six dark high-back chairs are perfectly placed in front of the villa’s gorgeous stone facade. Multiple floral arrangements in antique gold vases, tall blush pink taper candles, and a selection of seasonal and colorful fruits that are just as much for tasting as they are for admiring, accent the white table linen.
Place settings include a white plate and blush napkin with an intricate ring. A small place card is tucked off to the side for each guest.
As the couple takes in the beautiful tablescape, one can see the open back of the bride’s gown, as well as the floral accessory in her hair.
The villa’s showpiece – a beautiful white staircase – is covered in floral arrangements on both sides from top to bottom, making this bride’s walk a memorable one, indeed.
The bride looks utterly angelic as she descends the steps towards her awaiting groom. The lovely and gentle colors of the florals echo the soft and radiant glory that is her wedding day style.
With a small gathering of guests before them, the couple are positioned for a ceremony at the bottom of the staircase – the villa’s perfect spot for an intimate wedding ceremony in front of their most cherished of guests. The groom shows his agreement with a triumphant raise of the bride’s bouquet!
If you’re planning a wedding with a modest guest list, make it more than just a one-day event – make it an experience that lasts by considering an option like a villa. This styled shoot in Cyprus shows the possibilities of having guests all in one place to extend the celebration and create the most memorable – and beautiful – couple of days that you’ll cherish forever.
