From the moment we discovered the healing power of lavender, CyHerbia has celebrated this magical herb.

The 12th Annual Lavender Festival at Cyherbia Botanical Park in Avgorou, will be held on Saturday and Sunday the 15th and 16th of June 2024. Cyherbia is the only place in Cyprus with specially landscaped lavender gardens, a lavender labyrinth for meditation walks, a distillation room where extraction of lavender essential oil takes place, and many other unique features for all the family, such as the maze, the woodland walk around Cyprus, and the fairy village. A celebration of the most aromatic of all herbs, the Lavender Festival is the absolute highlight of the herbal calendar.

The Photographer

Hello, my name is Melina Tringis and I photograph families and couples in the luxurious lavender gardens of Cyherbia Botanical Park. Every year, when the lavender is in bloom from June until July, I get my custom made one size dresses ready for clients to wear during their photoshoot, with specially made flower crowns.

Through my work, my goal is to capture the feeling of serenity, love and togetherness and to deliver one of a kind series of photos my clients get to look back on for the rest of their life.
