Claire & Paul – Vasilias Nikoklis Inn Rustic wedding

This Vasilias Nikoklis Inn rustic wedding is one wedding we will always hold close to our hearts.  We formed such a friendship with the people that it actually felt like we were part of the family.  I don’t have to say much as Claire described her whole day perfectly.  Their story:

Paul and I had very briefly seen each other a few times but we never really got the chance to get to know each other.  We eventually did when we bumped into each other at the Grand National race day at Ayr! After lots of drinks and lots of talking we both knew there was a real connection. It wasn’t until a few months later however that we again met by chance and spent the whole night telling each other our life stories! Paul hadn’t long parted from an ex g/f.. so we decided to meet up for some dates and kept things secret for a while. I have to admit I loved the secret meetings.

We very quickly fell head over heels for each other. Paul was so funny and made me laugh all the time, he has lots of crazy stories to tell! But he also has a really soft and loving heart which totally won me over. We started our family early on, by accident whoops! It gave us a strong bond and brought us even closer together.  A few years later Paul took me away for a romantic weekend to Edinburgh when he proposed. It was just perfect and I couldn’t have been happier! It wasn’t until after baby no. 2 and moving house that we eventfully set a date and decided on marrying in Cyprus.

Planning our wedding was easy.  I already had my eye on the perfect wedding dress from Grace Loves Lace a couple of years before and knew it was the one! It was very simple but elegant and a little bit sexy too. I knew exactly what I wanted. A perfectly intimate and rustic wedding in a beautiful location. The venue was everything I could have asked for and more.

We had the most amazing wedding on 18th October 2017 at the Vasilias Nikoklis Inn, when I finally got to call him my husband. It was the proudest and happiest day ever 💗 Everything about the whole day was perfect and we were lucky enough to share it with all of our closest friends and family.  Christina and the team at Vasilias Nikoklis Inn went above and beyond to make everything beautiful and magical.

To top it all off I managed to find the best photographers in Cyprus who captured our whole day perfectly, you made us feel so at ease, and I have the most beautiful pictures and memories to keep forever!  A special thank you also to Maria from Flowershop Aliki for our beautiful flowers for the bridal party and the stunning floral decorations at the venue.. the brilliant djs tony and jilly at TJ disco wedding entertainments who brought the party to life, everyone loved the tunes! And for our delicious cake made by Piece of Cake, it was exactly what I asked for and all the guests said it was the tastiest wedding cake they’d ever had!
