With statistics showing that Cyprus enjoys 326 days of sunshine per year, it is not hard to understand why the island reputed to be the birthplace of Aphrodite, the goddess of love, is one of the most popular wedding and honeymoon destinations in Europe. A winning combination of beautiful venues and picturesque scenery have made for a thriving wedding tourism business in Cyprus with specialist companies on hand to arrange every last detail of an unforgettable wedding day for the happy couple and their guests. Both civil and religious ceremonies are available and many municipalities have developed their own special facilities to cater for them. In Nicosia some venues can host up to 2000 guests for cocktails and 500 for a sit down meal and offers such delightful spots as the town hall gardens and the historic Famagusta Gate to name but a few. Relatives can easily make the wedding part of a holiday owing to the great variety of holiday accommodation available, ranging from hotels to self-catering apartments and villas with or without private swimming pools.
Many couples stay on for a honeymoon vacation after the ceremony which could be in the Troodos Mountains or on the coast in one of the many five star hotels that Cyprus has to offer the discerning tourist.
Coastal wedding venues are very popular and offer superb blue sky and sunny seascape photo opportunities. Many places have been licenced for the performance of civil marriage ceremonies ranging from the medieval fort at the end of Larnaca’s Phinikoudes promenade to the place at Petra Tou Romiou in the Paphos district where Aphrodite is said to have been born from the sea’s foam at this very spot. Limassol too offers a great variety of locations for weddings apart from the town hall and includes a seafront location on a pier, a medieval castle in the old town and the Municipal Gallery Gardens. A little further along the coast in the Yermasogia district the beautiful five star Meridien Hotel is licensed for civil weddings as are many others.
