Weddings and Honeymoons in Cyprus
Itís the birthplace of Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love, said to have risen from the waves lapping this sun-kissed Mediterranean islandís dazzling coastline. So itís hard to think of a more appropriate place for the true romantic to tie the knot than Cyprus.
If your idea of the perfect wedding setting involves perfect blue skies, an equally turquoise sea, and a gentle sea breeze, Cyprus could be absolutely ideal for your marriage or vows renewal ceremony.
With some 330 days of sunshine annually, and a summer season which lasts longer than Britainís, Cyprus pretty much guarantees gorgeous weather, whatever time of year you decide to tie the knot.
The island is also ideal for couples wanting an affordable, sunny wedding location overseas without a long-haul flight.
Youíll be spoilt for choice of wedding venue, whether you want a civil or a religious ceremony. There are rustic town halls, beautiful traditional churches and modern chapels, beach pavilions, terraces or upmarket hotels to choose from. Or for something completely different, how about splashing out on a private yacht?
After tying the knot, enjoy a traditional, intimate feast in a local taverna, or a luxury reception in a top hotel.
Youíll find a great variety of wedding packages on offer, giving you complete peace of mind that everything is taken care of, from the flowers and photography to the reception. A package will ensure all the paperwork is in order so that your marriage is 100% legal. You can also tailor-make packages so they suit your vision for your perfect day.
There are few formalities - you only need to have been on the island for three to five working days before getting married. Couples need to submit certified copies of their passports, birth certificates and proof of their marital status.
Cyprus is also an idyllic honeymoon destination with so much to enjoy from the stunning coastline and beautiful beaches to cobbled village streets. Chill out and enjoy all the island has to offer after all the excitement of your wedding. And, with an array of fantastic excursions, activities, water sports, cuisine, culture and beach life on offer, youíll love every minute of your first holiday as a married couple.
