If you love the idea of getting married in a warm sunny location surrounded by the ocean but do not wish to travel as far a field as The Caribbean or Indian Ocean, then having your wedding in Cyprus could be the perfect choice.

Situated in the Mediterranean and boasting 330 days of sunshine a year, you are almost guaranteed warn weather and perfect blue skies should you choose to marry on this beautiful island.

With its stunning coastline, beautiful beaches, historical sights, cobbled villages, flower filled fields, cosy restaurants and lively nightlife there’s something to cater for all tastes – it’s hard to believe that all this could be contained on a single isle.

What could be more romantic than exchanging vows on the ‘island of love’, the birthplace of Aphrodite, the goddess of love, who is said to have risen from the waves rolling into the beautiful Cypriot coastline.

If you are travelling from the United Kingdom, Cyprus is only a four and a half hour flight from London and the cost of wedding services and packages compare favourably with similar wedding packages to long haul destinations such as The Caribbean.

Top Tips from couples who were  married in Cyprus

  • Don’t forget you’ll need to take affidavits of single status, your full birth certificates and a baptism certificate if you’re having a religious ceremony.
  • Deposits and bills need to be paid in local currency, unless you’re booking everything through a hotel or tour operator.
  • It’s one of the easier countries to get married in and can be easily organised over the internet. We arrived nine days before the wedding which gave us ample time to finalise things like the reception venue, food, flowers and photographer.

Real Experiences – Why did you choose Cyprus?

Cyprus Real Wedding Asfhan & Guy weddingsabroadguide.comWe had visited Cyprus a year before our own special day and had seen a number of weddings taking place. To us it seemed a wonderful place to get married, so when Guy popped the question a Cyprus wedding was an easy decision to make.

Cyprus Real Wedding Zoe & Lee weddingsabroadguide.comWe chose Cyprus because it is one of the easier countries to get married in, and everything is so relaxed abroad – much more so than at home. If you get the chance to visit before the wedding, then it’s well worth it to see your venues, but it’s by no means necessary. Just get as much info about your venues and suppliers before you go.
