For many couples, the only way to share the joy of their wedding day with their children is via photographs. There are, however, some fortunate people – like Adam and Adrianne – for whom the celebration is a family event. In this elegant wedding photography at Asterias Beach Hotel, two parents become husband and wife, surrounded by their beloved children.

Just as parenting produces unparalleled joy, it’s also the source of some of life’s most difficult challenges. It demands patience, strength, and bottomless compassion – along with an excellent sense of humour. For Adam, watching the tenderness, warmth, and wisdom Adrianne displayed every day as a mother proved his heart’s instinct true: Out of all the women on earth, there was no one he would rather have as a wife than her. When she agreed to his proposal, he knew that both his soul and his family were about to become complete.

Soon, the whole family – bursting with excitement – packed their bags, destined for the beautiful Asterias Beach Hotel. If you’ve been following my career as an Ayia Napa wedding photographer, that name might be familiar: Back in 2019, I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Alina and Marcus beneath its flowering arches. Nestled against Makronissos bay, with its crystal-clear waters and brilliant white sand, the Asterias Hotel offers a retreat into paradise. It’s a place where couples can dream by the sea, their hopes and wishes taking wing with the gulls.

As I took this elegant wedding photography at Asterias Beach Hotel, my own heart soared, and I couldn’t help smiling. While Adam and Adrianne walked up the aisle, their son proudly held up a sign. “It’s time to give mommy our last name,” it said, acknowledging that after today, nothing would ever stand between them. And then, a hush fell over the guests… The moment had finally arrived: Adam lifted Adrianne’s veil and kissed her, looking into the eyes of the woman about to become his wife. With heartfelt intention, they spoke their vows, promising to share a lifetime of love, laughter, and devotion.

As soon as they were officially wed, Adam and Adrianne’s children rushed to embrace them, hearts overflowing with joy. Just as the sea mirrors the sky, the love they share was reflected in their children’s eyes, shining even brighter. Looking into my lens, four faces lit up with beaming smiles, and I knew they had all found home. Then, the rest of the family crowded around, sharing congratulations, hugs, and tears, full of gratitude for love’s many miracles.

Later, while I watched Adam and Adrianne dance, carrying their children close, I was reminded of a universal truth: Just as constellations are made of many stars bound in formation, families shine brighter together. They are the web of light that moves us, anchors us, and gives meaning to all of life’s journeys. For Adam and Adrianne, the heavens are now aligned in perfect synchrony.
