Cyprus - Part Two

The day of the wedding...

Laura and Paul's Wedding May 2014

And we were exceptionally excited about it!

The ceremony was gorgeous.

And just LOOK at that view!


Laura looked absolutely perfect.

Everybody agreed she made an absolutely beautiful bride. Paul also looked lovely, obviously. As did, the mother of the bride, the father of the bride, the groom's parents, the parent's parents... you know what, everyone looked good, let's just leave it at that. But Laura especially so.

And, in a blink, it was over! There was then much taking of pictures, with the bossiest photographer, ever!

Which was probably for the best as it was a large, chatty bunch of people! Then we were swept to the top floor of the Grecian Hotel for nibbles and champagne.

I had plenty of fun meeting people that my Dad grew up with, and hearing plenty of funny stories, but the theme of the day, rightfully so, was how incredible this wedding is/how incredible Laura is looking. Unbeknownst to us at the time, it was only going to get better from here.

After everyone had had juuuuust enough to drink, and left some words of love for the bride and groom, we were happily led back down for dinner.

In case you are wondering, the food was entirely as good as it looked.

Paul was taking no chances with spillage. Then came the speeches! They were all absolutely brilliant. I laughed, I cried (as discreetly as possible) and learnt some exceptionally embarrassing information about Paul which has since been promptly disclosed to all my friends.

And then came the reception. Everyone was a little dozy after the champagne and food...but that soon changed...helped along by sporadic shots of sambuca...

We ended up pouring ourselves into taxis around 3am, well after we'd been kicked out of the bar. It was spectacular. But we did very well to not be hungover for the boat the next day...though we had some help...
