From the moment I touched down in the warm Cypriot sun, with the smell of sea salt in the air and surrounded by gorgeous scenery and happy faces I knew this would be a special wedding.
Tanya and Ian were the most relaxed, friendly couple and such a pleasure to shoot. I think the fact that so many friends and family members made the trip to Cyprus to share their special day with them is testament to what a great couple they are.
On the day of the wedding itself I started by taking photos of the guys on the pier, the beach and around the hotel. I loved the matching grey suits of the groomsmen and the attention to detail with the pink socks and matching brogues. I spent time with Tanya and the girls in the hotel room, capturing all the special moments of them getting ready and enjoying time together.
Luckily the wedding was late in the afternoon so the blistering sun was lower in the sky, that was great for the lighting and also meant a cooler bride and groom and guests. After the traditional Greek ceremony we headed back to the hotel where I spent time with the bridal party to get some great photos. At this point the sun was at is optimum position and the golden hour was perfect for photos.
The whole bridal party was a pleasure to photograph and the colours of their outfits against the backdrop of a perfect blue sky and white brick pier looked fantastic in the photographs.
I kept shooting up until the wee hours of the morning, capturing all the special moments of the day and loved every minute of it. One of the most special wedding days I have had the pleasure of being a part of.
Here is what Tanya and Ian had to say…
“We recently used Kellianne to do my wedding photos abroad and can’t praise her enough. Wedding days can be a little stressful but Kellianne really made everyone feel at ease. She took some amazing shots of us all getting ready and didn’t stop snapping the whole day. What was great is that you didn’t even notice she was there half the time, she wasn’t intrusive at all. I really wanted a photographer to take some great funky shots of the day and she did just that. I have to say our wedding photos are better than I expected. If you are thinking of using Kellianne then don’t think twice… She really is the best photographer to use for your special day or any occasion.”
