Cyprus is widely known for being one of the world’s premier destinations for weddings abroad. “People from all over the world flock to the Island of Love to host their marriage celebrations for a variety of reasons, whether it’s for a small private ceremony or a more extravagant affair,” says Jane, a wedding coordinator from Golden Coast Beach Hotel, one of the best wedding venues in Cyprus. “The weather is beautiful throughout most of the year, the people are known for being friendly and welcoming, and the scenery all over the island is simply breathtaking.” If you do choose to look for your dream wedding venue in Cyprus we can guide you through the best places to start.
For example, Protaras is particularly famous for its beautiful beaches, situated on what’s known as the Golden Coast. The area has everything you need in a small resort including fabulous hotels, restaurants and bars to turn your dream wedding into an unforgettable holiday for all your guests. You will find only a few hotels offering both civil ceremonies and church weddings in Cyprus, but in Protaras you have these options and more. In fact, you can host your wedding at the wonderful Ayios Elias Gardens close to the famous “kissing rocks” or even on the beach itself.
Nearby Ayia Napa is well known for its vibrant atmosphere and is ideally suited to hen and stag parties before the big day itself! We highly recommend it if your wedding party spans various different ages, as there really is something for everyone in this fantastic town, from the famous bar scene to high quality hotels by the beach.
We must also mention the island’s ancient capital, Paphos itself. The large resort is full of rich history and stunning beauty both natural and man-made. If you’re choosing a religious ceremony in a church then you have a variety of options, and if you’re happy with a ceremony at your hotel the selection couldn’t be of a higher standard. You can also opt for something more outdoors, and even go as far as to have your wedding on Aphrodite’s beach! The nearby location is famous for being the birthplace of the Greek Goddess of Love, so what could be better for celebrating your marriage in Cyprus?
