Day 4 of Microwedding Week 2 is this gorgeous destination wedding! Juliius and Yulia wed in a beautiful ceremony overlooking the sea in Cyprus, with just 2 guests; the bride's sisters. Other family members shared their day virtually via video call The bride wore a simple structured David Koma dress paired with an elegant cathedral veil, while the groom wore a gorgeous Velsvoir pinstripe suit. 

How many guests did you have?
We could have 4; my sisters Elena and Dasha Pashevkina, and my now husband and I. 

Tell us all about your wedding theme and colour scheme!

It was a very minimalistic wedding. We all wore British designers. My dress was by David Koma, Julius wore a suit by Velsvoir and my sisters both opted for silk Galvan London gowns. 

Tell us a little about your ceremony  

We had a registrar for our wedding ceremony, and it was held at the Amara Hotel in Cyprus 

What was your… 

Something Old: my Fendi Purse 
Something New: my Dress 
Something Borrowed: my white shoes I borrowed from my sister Dasha 
Something Blue: my Blue Dior Earrings 

What was the most emotional moment of the day? 

Walking down the aisle with Julius taking my hand and then seeing my parents on the video call..was bitter sweet! 

What was your favourite part of the day? 

I enjoyed our little Cypriot wedding. I didn’t have the jitters. I was relaxed, in the moment. And I had my dearest people next to me: my husband, sisters and my parents (who were watching the wedding on a video call).

What music did you walk down the aisle to?
Can’t Help falling in love by Haley Reinhart.

What was your wedding must have?

Make-up and hair you are happy with as there will be a lot of pictures. And a good photographer! 

Did you have have anything unusual at your wedding?   

I only had 2 guests at the wedding – my sisters. And Julius’s sisters and my parents joined the celebration over video calls. 

Do you have a favourite wedding purchase? 

My David Koma dress and the veil that was as light as a feather and kept flowing in the air with the wind.

Tell us all about the dress!
I did go dress shopping and tried some gorgeous pieces, but none of them felt right. I am a big fan of David Koma, since we stock the brand at my online shop www.theboxboutique.com. And the minute I put it on I knew it was the one! And on top, it was a bargain as it was just over £600 for it.

How did you choose your venue? 

My friend Matthew Zorpas, who is a big blogger originally from Cyprus recommended Amara hotel. And the minute I checked it out, I was sold! 

Is there anything you wish you could have done differently?  

I wish my parents had physically been there and not just via the video call. But they still felt like they were part of it. 

What wedding photograph make you laugh the most?

The one where Julius is making ‘look what I have done’ face
