Destination Wedding in Ayia Napa: Rhianna & Oliver's Cypriot Dream

Rhianna and Oliver were married this summer in Ayia Napa, a beautiful resort in Southern Cyprus, renowned all over the world for its golden beaches and incredible seafood. With the sun gleaming high in the sky above them, their short time in the country was full of romance and love – and, unlike a lot of Destination Weddings, they were able to have their family, friends and loved ones alongside them as they made their vows to one another in a gorgeous, original ceremony. And their evening reception at the Olympic Lagoon Resort was a real celebration, with brilliant speeches, divine cuisine, and plenty of enthusiastic dancing. 

Rhianna looked stunning in her fit-and-flare wedding dress with allover lace and a vivacious, dramatic layered tulle skirt (we love her vintage shoes too!). Accompanied by a whole team of bridesmaids – who looked picture-perfect in their matching peach V-neck gowns – Rhianna was in good company as she prepared for the big event, and enjoyed a relaxed morning, complete with fizz! And Oliver did not disappoint either, donning a three-piece Navy suit (minus the jacket – which we can forgive, given the weather!) and a tie and boutonnière matching the bridesmaids’ dresses.

We have to say, one of our favourite features of Rhianna and Oliver’s wedding was their ceremony decoration. The paper lanterns were incredibly classic, and added a very elegant, stylish touch to their big day – and later, became beacons of light at their reception. Their wedding and reception is also a fantastic source of inspiration for couples who are struggling with floral decorations – tastefully adorning every spare inch of the venue, the pastel pinks, creams and splashes of orange are beautiful!

And to finally reflect on the photography from Dominic Lemoine Photography… Well, what can we say that their amazing photos don’t show? Dominic and Ruby took full advantage of the beauty of their surroundings to capture some of the most epic, intricate and truly breath-taking wedding photos we have ever seen. Their pre-ceremony shoot with Rhianna and Oliver very effectively demonstrates the extent of their skill in choosing the best locations, lighting and angles, allowing them to create the awesome images you can see within this article. If you’re looking for excellence – and romance – in your wedding photos, then you need not search any longer: Dominic Lemoine Photographer are simply perfect!
