Jess and Alex wanted a wedding that truly represented their personalities. Their breathtaking destination wedding at the Olympic Lagoon Resort in Cyprus was an intimate, special day dedicated all to them. Fun, colorful florals dressed the bouquet, and confetti flew after they tied the knot. Not wanting to spend a moment apart, the couple traveled around the beautiful beach location making sure to document every special moment. Talented photographer Chris Barroccu captured astonishing photos of the couple.
Jess and Alex
Olympic Lagoon Resort, Nissi Beach, Cyprus
I always wished for a colourful day, wanting everything to stand out in the Cypriot sunshine. Wanting our colour theme to match our personalities we thought that this could not be represented by just one colour, but by the whole rainbow with all different shades. In addition, it symbolised that we had found in each other the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. We also had the song over the rainbow as our song walking back down the aisle as man and wife which tied in perfectly. With the 2 bridesmaids matching the two groomsmen in bright orange and yellow, my ivory lacy dress and Alex‘s simple grey suit we feel added a bit of class, in contrast to my amazing rainbow bouquet and buttonhole to match.
Jess: My favourite moment was the walk down the aisle clutching my dads arm to find my man waiting for me with tears and a smile, summed up the happiness of how we were all feeling! My mothers speech where she also read a heartfelt letter written by my absent Grampa and Nan offered our wedding a personal touch.
Alex: It has to be Jess walking down the aisle, in a dress that was the complete opposite style to what I had thought and more beautiful than I could have imagined! On par with the happiness of Jess walking down the aisle, my second surprise was in the form of a song introduced by my new in-laws for our first dance. A song recorded by Jess, a gift just for me, that no-one else will ever have their first dance to.
The Couple Recommends:
We would highly recommend the amazing Chris Barroccu Photographer for all the brilliant shots he got of us. All day he was on the ball, creating a perfect story book of our day, capturing it all. He was so passionate about his work and our wedding that he looked like he was doing pilates just to get the shot perfect, his commitment was second to none!
We would also highly recommend going abroad to tie the not, the wedding planning and the whole day was organised for us, with minimal fuss or effort on our behalf. We could not have asked for a better resort or more attentive staff (especially Jodie and Orla) than at Olympic Lagoon Resort, Nissi Beach.
