Nicholas and Christiana’s ‘Fairy Lights and Protea’ Stunning Outdoor Wedding in Cyprus by Karina Leonenko Photography
Today I am jetting you off to somewhere warm and sunny, so we can remember...
Good afternoon everyone! I am so delighted to share this shoot with you today, it is just beyond gorgeous! Shot by the incredibly talented Lisa Hoshi on the 20th June 2017 at Commanderie de Dormelles, it is just full of beautifully delicate touches, just as you would expect from a romantic French stylist! With absolutely stunning stationery and a delicate patisserie, this set up is every bride’s dream I am sure. I have a soft spot for double exposure photography too, so I am loving everything about this post this afternoon! I do hope you enjoy it as much as me!
What made you decide to do the Shoot?
I really enjoy creating inspirational shoots. I can do this each week ! This is an opportunity for me to be more creative, more inspired and able to have fun. Also, I loved to work with vendors that I appreciate and realised together beautiful images for our portfolios.
What was your inspiration behind it?
I am a great dreamer and it is important for me to be able to express my imagination. Take pictures for fun, photograph what I like and what I find beautiful.
With this shoot, I wanted to make bright pictures, a beautiful decor and demonstrate, with the help of the vendors, that it was possible to have a wedding inspired by nature, elegant with a touch of madness!
What did you want to get out for the shoot and do you feel you accomplished this?
Frequently in France, when I speak to my couples of inspirational shoots or wedding blogs, they don’t know. The D-day, it often happens that the wedding has lacked reflection or is really very basic.
We are supposed to be in a country known to be the “temple of good taste” so, modestly, I wanted to have the opportunity to show them images that can inspire they wedding and, of course, images matching with my style.
