Muhit and Sedef’s Golden Hour Wedding Portraits in North Cyprus
Golden Hour for wedding photographers is a bit like honey to a bee (excuse the cliche). The tones and colours you achieve from the position of the sun can transform your images and it’s something that many destination wedding photographers chase on a wedding day. Living in the UK means it’s hit or miss most of the time unfortunately and let’s face it, you never really know what the weather will be doing on any given day. Don’t get me wrong, when it comes to moody skies we win, so it’s not all bad. But when it comes to the golden hour at a North Cyprus Wedding, well they are untouchable, to say the least!
During a destination wedding in the Mediterranean, you’re pretty much guaranteed to get that lovely golden light exactly as you need it, bang on time every night. Having spent a week in North Cyprus I was able to gauge where we should go for our couples photoshoot and at exactly what time for the best possible light, which was amazing!
Bellapais Monastery, also known as the “Abbey of Peace” is a gorgeous 13th-century Monastery boasting some of the best views of Kyrenia and the Mediterranean sea. Surrounded by a small village of cafes and restaurants it seemed the perfect location for Wedding Portrait Shoot. We were the last people into the museum which meant we pretty much had the place to ourselves, which doesn’t happen often.
