Paphos Destination Wedding Photography – Mike and Karen



It was an absolute pleasure to be back in Cyprus recently to shoot the wedding of Mike and Karen. It was my first time in Paphos, having previously shot weddings in Limassol, and I absolutely loved the place. I have been lucky enough to have captured two other Cyprus weddings over the past few years so it was awesome to be back in such a wonderful country.

Mike and Karen’s Paphos wedding had everything (and more) I have come to expect from a destination wedding. It had a gorgeous venue, wonderfully tasty food, insane light and most of all crazy-lovely people.

Mike and Karen were married at the stunning Alexander The Great Hotel. I spent the day with them, starting with the boys in the morning. We spent a little bit of time over in a local bar, playing pool and sampling the local beer. After the boys were ready I headed to meet the girls in their room for some pampering, laughter and plenty of bubbly.

Their ceremony took place on the Unity Terrace which offered gorgeous sea views. In between the drinking and celebrating I was able to steal Mike and Karen for a few portraits before they sat down to enjoy an extremely impressive wedding breakfast. As the day was drawing to an end we were treated to a blast of my favourite kind of light so we nipped down to the beach for some portraits on a rock jetti. One of which was the image at the top of this blog, which I was made up to have won a Wedisson Award for just a few weeks ago.


I love shooting weddings abroad and getting to be Mike and Karen’s Paphos wedding photographer was a so much fun. Destination weddings don’t only allow me to visit new places but let me explore the culture of weddings in other countries.

I cannot thank Mike and Karen enough for flying me out to such a beautiful part of the world and giving me the freedom to tell the story of their wonderful wedding.
