Emma & James’s Real Wedding

Emma and James’ wedding ceremony took place in the fantastic Bellapais Abbey, Northern Cyprus. Keeping the service personal, they wrote their own ceremony and vows and lit a memorial candle to remember loved ones not with them on their day. Doing humorous and touching readings, James and his son Harry had the guests in tears! Later, the guests explored the historical abbey before sitting down to a delicious meal on the grounds of the venue.


The Cake

Emma and James’ wedding cake was arranged by their wedding planner in Cyprus. The pretty two tier sponge cake was filled with buttercream and jam. Again, keeping with the wedding colour scheme, the cake was covered in pale green icing and had beautiful sugared pink peonies on top and on the sides. The flowers matched Emma’s bouquet which was also arranged by her wedding planner.


The guests enjoyed the treat along with fruit and ice-cream as dessert and there was some left over which was given out after the wedding.

The couple enjoyed eight lovely relaxing days in Kyrenia making the most of the beach and the beautiful surrounding scenery.

Emma’s tip for the brides to be out there: avoid choosing your dress too far in advance in case your venue, colour scheme, etc. don’t match it. You may also see others that you like closer to your wedding date!
