〝They seamlessly blend into the background to capture the events without imposing.

Trying to coordinate so many people is never going to be any easy task, but their presence was totally calming and they successfully got the photos we all wanted. This resulted in a†mixture of candid snaps and portraits, and the candid snaps were exactly how we wanted to remember the day, where our family and friends were truly having fun.†

Thank you both for travelling to Cyprus and your photos have helped embed memories of the best weekend of our lives!〞

Anassa Hotel Cyprus wedding reception

Where Mediterranean opulence meets wedding goals, this uber-chic Anassa Resort Wedding in Cyprus is just what you’ve been looking for!

Are you obsessed with luxury resort destination weddings? Because we know we’re not the only ones who’d adore an extra large bash at Cyprus’ most iconic and sought-after resort! We’re talking about none other than the gorgeous Anassa, Eleni, and Edward’s choice for the most epic Cyprus wedding celebration!

The two met during a festival in South East London in 2017. After Eleni beat all the boys at table tennis, and with everyone cheering at her fantastic energy, smitten Ed took her on a series of dates, each more creative than the first, and the rest was history. In February 2022, they traveled to the Lyngen Alps in Norway to check watching the Northern Lights off their typical bucket list. Dark as it was, Eleni barely took notice of Ed kneeling, but she did make a mark of his words. Will you marry me?

Next, they began planning the wedding and sided with Splendid Events to make it happen! The family joined the beautiful duo from the UK, New Zealand, and Australia, and friends from Canada, HK, Costa Rica, and the US, precisely what the couple had envisioned for their special day! So many faces from across the globe gathered around them. If you want to discover the most extraordinary way to have your large group quenched during your wedding ceremony, head to the gallery below to cue in the good stuff!

How we met and the proposal

Our Wedding looks

We attended a festival together in south east London with mutual friends in 2017, I beat the boys at table tennis and was part of the lads crew. Ed then spoilt me with a number of creative dates and the rest was history!

In February 2022 after a few COVID delays we visited the Lyngen Alps in Norway to watch the Northern Lights, a bucket list goal for us both. Here Ed proposed under the Northern Lights (although I actually did not realise he was on one knee because it was so dark). We are returning to the place of our engagement in December 2023.

My dress was similar to my mother's wedding dress, a timeless off the shoulder look but modernised with blue shoes and a pearl choker, a family necklace. The key feature when I asked the dress designer to make the dress was that the material should be light so I could dance..!

Ed had a tailored stone coloured linen/cotton blend suit from U.K. brand Suit Supply. Ed chose this colour to blend well with the Anassas natural surroundings and white marble of the hotel. All of Ed's groomsmen wore a suit of the same colour.

The suits were contrasted with navy blue ties, also from suit supply, and navy sockless loafers from Russell and Bromley. The navy contrast was chosen to match the bridesmaids dresses, which were also navy.

Why we chose CYPRUS

My paternal family are Cypriot and came from small villages in the mountains. Ed's father was Commanding Officer of the British military hospital on RAF Akrotiri for a number of years and his family spent 3 years living in Cyprus. The Anassa wedding was a symbolic ceremony, performed by two of my bridesmaids, a fun and light ceremony under the Mediterranean sun. Then the real party began for family and friends.

We were joined by family from UK, New Zealand, Australia, friends from Canada, HK, Costa Rica, US, it was incredible to see so many faces from all over the world on the tiny island in the Med.


Our favourite moment hands down of the entire 4 day event was after the first dance when all our friends and family launched themselves onto the dancefloor. From this point on no one left the dancefloor until 3:15am (when the music was turned off!).

My Dad is still relieved he never had to do a father daughter dance with 200 onlookers because no one left the dancefloor. The band (HOVIG) and DJ (DJ Andrew P) were incredible and really bounced off the crowd.

Another favourite moment was the morning of the wedding when 70 of our guests went for a swim in the sea!

Décor and florals

We incorporated some Kiwi & Cypriot traditions in homage to my routes (e.g. paua shells from New Zealand as the wedding favour). Our favourite touch was the "Elenward's Taverna" sign that we placed over the entrance to the village square for dinner which we had made, and most importantly, the shot wall "Take Your Shot and Find Your Spot", which showed our guests which tables they were sat on.

We went with a white and green floral theme, with touches of olive leaves / olive branches to stay with the Greek vibe. The flowers were a blend of white varieties including a lot of roses for the table and arch decor.

Advice to other couples

Don't listen to what is "traditional" or "meant to happen", it's your day and you want to enjoy every second of it! You only do it once!


Dancing with our family and friends!
