Today's real wedding post is an extra special post for us as it features none other than Dearly Beloved's Ben's twin sister Lucy and her new husband... also called Ben (yes, family events are confusing). Lucy and Ben tied the knot earlier this year in a beautiful, relaxed ceremony on the Cypriot coast. Wedding day photography by Dom Moore Photography.
For their greetings card style wedding invitation they chose tandem bicycle illustration as a nod to one of their favourite past times (Ben is a triathlete) and asked us to combine this with the iconic Cypriot olive branch.
The wedding took place at one of the couple's favourite places on earth, a small sailing club near where the family used to live, with the ceremony outside an idyllic church by the sea.
Lucy and Ben planned small, intimate celebration with lots of special DIY touches; the ceremony was conducted by the groom's grandfather, flowers were sourced from a local florist, meters (and meters) and lace bunting was hand made from vintage lace curtains by the bride's mother and sister, we took care of the stationery (of course) and the whole wedding party was on hand to help with decorating the space.
As well as holding nearly a decade of memories for the Aslett family the sailing club was full of rustic charm, it was lovely to be there to add last minute touches like decorating the chalkboard with a welcome message for guests.
We made so many great memories during the week we spent in Cyprus celebrating with Lucy and Ben, wishing them a lifetime of happiness together!
