If you are planning an overseas wedding Cyprus is the perfect place to say 'I do'.
I hope this WEDDING CYPRUS MINI GUIDE will be a valuable research tool for couples planning to celebrate their union on our golden shores.
Even the most harden cynics out there are surely swayed by the romantic notion of tying the knot under the watchful gaze of the Goddess of Love. Steeped in ancient mythical lore Cyprus is abound with tales of Aphrodite who upon stepping from the foaming surf that laps our island shores entranced and beguiled all that laid eyes upon her (keep a firm hold on those grooms’ girls!!).
So if you dream of getting married against a backdrop of blue skies, endless azure seas, a warm sea breeze and the gentle sound of waves meeting sand. Ancient romantic myth, gorgeous weather and warm island hospitality will combine to make a wedding in Cyprus your perfect choice.
Putting aside heady romantic ideals for just a moment.....
A Cyprus wedding also has its practical advantages.
How many couples dream of a wedding abroad but worry about offending friends and family who won't be able to attend? Cyprus is so accessible with flights to Larnaca and Paphos from all major departure airports in UK and Europe. It's a mere four and a half hour from the UK and in 2008 was one of the most popular Mediterranean holiday destinations. So with numerous packages and independent travel options available your wedding in Cyprus could be an ideal incentive for your guests to plan their next Mediterranean holiday.
I mentioned way back on the homepage that my husband and I got married here on the island some years ago...... but I suppose we had a slight advantage as we were already living here with a broad local network of contacts and friends. I'd like to pass on some of this personal experience in my WEDDING CYPRUS MINI GUIDE and hope that it will be of assistance to those of you planning your Cyprus wedding.
I wish you every success with your wedding plans and my very best wishes for your perfect Cyprus wedding.
