Natasa & Nigel

Where do I begin?

The first thing that you need to know is that Nigel is an old high school buddy of mine. I love him like a brother so it’s a shame that I don’t see much of him these days. He’s a journalist and spends a lot of his time based in Ramallah where he writes stories on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. Of all places, that is where these two met. Originally from Cyprus, Natasa worked in Palestine at the time they met, teaching Greek to some of the local children. They are both good people and spend their time doing good in the world. I really admire that about them.

Natasa grew up in the small Cypriot mountain village of Farmakas. It’s a special place. People are happy there. You get the sense that everything revolves around friends and family. The lives that the they live today would not be that much different to the generations before them. The people are deeply connected to their culture and traditions, which made Natasa and Nigel’s wedding that extra bit special.

The wedding took place in the ancient village of Fikardou, a short drive from Natasa’s village. Fikardou is a UNESCO world heritage listed site and said to be over 500 years old. Just a few people live their now who run the local tavern. I’m sure one day it will have a Starbucks and gift shop selling t-shirts and snow domes. For now, it’s the real deal. When you walk the abandoned streets, it really does feel like you’ve traveled back in time. The wedding was the first one there in recent times. For all we know, the last wedding in the village was literally hundreds of years ago. That’s pretty cool don’t you think?

I could go on, but that’s probably enough words. I’ll let the photos take it from here…
