A lovely afternoon combined wedding and christening at the wonderful Archangelos Michael Church. With the warm sunlight streaming in letting the inside of the church glow.
Many guests and beautifully dressed children filled the church.
Let me feature a detailed selection of the many pictures taken that afternoon right through to the night, where the family celebrated at the well known restaurant Occhio, Nicosia.
Marios’ arrival at the church and waiting for Evi to come with Haris:
And here she comes, with her father Andreas and little Haris:
Love this portrait of Haris:
Marios’ parents Androulla and Haris:
Evi’s parents: Androulla and Andreas:
The first part of the ceremony, the wedding, is about to start. On Marios’ right the best man Nicos and on Evi’s left beautiful Maid of honour Stella:
And look at all these amazingly pretty girls! I honestly couldn’t keep from turning around to portrait them throughout the ceremony:
Natasa, one of the godparents to Haris, with her younger daughter:
Before the wedding ceremony proceeds the first part of the christening was held. Lovely eye contact between the priest and Haris:
Second godparent Constantinos now holding Haris:
Back to the wedding:
All the girls had their hair done so nicely, very elegant:
Congratulations Evi and Marios!
Now back to the christening, until the end:
Very sweet, and very exhausted!
After this very beautiful and emotional ceremony we moved out of the church and took many family and friends group portraits in the shade underneath an arch. Here are just some of the many I took, but please if you don’t find your portrait here on the blog, don’t worry, I have them all, just email me directly!
The church grounds are particularly well maintained and despite the strong afternoon sun we found some lovely spots to take portraits of Evi, Marios and Haris:
A couple of hours later we met again. This time at Occhio, famous restaurant & bar in the heart of Engomi. A very elegant table lay-out and decoration for the dinner, followed by a fun filled dance party till the early morning hours:
And they also celebrated the birthday of one of the cousins! What a surprise!
Lovely lovely…. and now the dancing starts! The lights were dimmed, the music was turned louder, lots of disco colourful disco light. Amazing how the whole party atmosphere comes across in those great action shots:
Congratulations again! You are a wonderful family and I had a lot of fun documenting your great day!
All the best to the three of you
