I am not the kind of people that will write about a wedding story full with glitter, rainbows and unicorns so here is the real deal!
Usually people in Cyprus start complaining how hot it is around June when temperatures start to pass the 35 Celsius point. I always reply "wait for July". Well... 1st of July came and BOOOOM 50 degrees of hell came with it. 5 Days of intense heat wave with one wedding, one christening, and one casual event to go along with it. As i write this i still feel the burning sensation i had on those 2 days! Try shooting a wedding with 50 degrees celsius with the electricity power failures off due to over use of the air conditions trying to cool down a house room full of people! Most probably in every house on the island that week the ac's were working 24/7 ! Thank god for Sigg water containers. Having a beer after the church to cool down was not a good idea either! It was the most challenging weekend of events i ever had so far starting with Giannis and Despinas wedding day! What kept me going on that day except water was the excitement of those two people that i was capturing their wedding day as they booked me nearly 3 years in advance and moving the date by one year to ensure the vendors they wanted for their wedding.
Heat and power failures aside and it was a wonderful relaxed day full of positive energy and smiles with two wonderful people joining their paths together. Full story below!
