Amber and Matthew tied the knot on 16th September 2019 at the stunning Olympic Lagoon Resort in Cyprus. The location was like something out of a film set and the sun shone on this gorgeous couple as they celebrated their love in front of a small gathering of family and friends.
Amber wore an Alfred Angelo wedding dress (style number 2497) which she looked absolutely breath-taking in. Amber chose this dress because of the beautiful back detail, and she also liked the fact that it wasn't the traditional white- perfect for an overseas wedding. Amber wasn't even going to try this dress on when she first came in to view the dresses at Amica, but once she did it was love!
Amber says, "The team at Amica Bridal Boutique were incredible from start to finish! Amy was great in ensuring that I was 100% happy with my dress without the pushiness and uncomfortable pressure that I experienced with some bridal shops. I had lots of alterations to be made and five fittings, and the whole team were so patient. The seamstress ensured it was finished exactly how I wanted it by the tight deadline (!) and I was over the moon with the result."
One of the plus points of an overseas hotel wedding is that the hotel takes care of a lot of the finer details so that couples can just enjoy their day. The hotel provided the hairdresser, photographer and bouquet of blue and ivory carnations with pearls and gems incorporated. And also provided the setting for their honeymoon too- perfect.
Because the wedding was a scaled-down affair, the couple chose not to have a wedding cake, and Amber's mum was asked to be maid of honour in lieu of bridesmaids. Amber remembers fondly, "Walking down the aisle with Matthew with our loved ones scattering confetti over us was the happiest moment! I was on cloud nine..."
Amber's final words to couples planning a wedding, "Plan the day how you want, don’t do any of it to please other people or worry what they think, just focus on you and the groom and have the best day!"
We are so happy for you and your gorgeous family Amber! We wish you all the love and happiness in the world, from us all here at Amica Bridal Boutique xxx
