Wedding Guide

As a wedding florist of many years I can give you plenty of tips and secrets for styling your special day in Cyprus. I have been involved in the wedding business for well over a decade and have helped so many lovely couples bring a touch of uniqueness to their wedding day by adding personal touches that really make a difference. Not only in the floral work but also with wedding hire in Cyprus and an in-depth knowledge of the whole process. It is the ability to stamp your personalities on everything from the stationery to choosing your flowers, the introduction of adding details that reflect your lives, mixed with ideas borrowed from both your family’s heritage that will give you the stunning look you want.

The first step is to define your own personal style – do you want a traditional, informal or contemporary wedding in Cyprus? Give your wedding a styled theme based on something that interests you both. For example, your love of travel, the movies etc. Work with the seasons too, this will help you with flower choice and colours. Lastly think of your wedding location here in Cyprus. Your choice of venue will to some extent set the scene. We will work together to enhance what is already there.
