Cyprus is among Europe’s most popular wedding and honeymoon destinations. Couples of all ages and nationalities choose this romantic Mediterranean island as the place to make their lifelong commitment and celebrate love. And it’s easy to see why.
According to the Cyprus Tourism Organisation (CTO), Cyprus is such a popular wedding destination as “everything is under the sun”.
As the birthplace of Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty, “Cyprus has legendary connections to romance.”
Other reasons so many couples choose the island for their special day include the fact that it is close to many European countries, has a range of unique wedding venues, ideal weather with sunny days throughout the year, beautiful beaches, a wide range of accommodation options for all budgets –from 5-star resorts to self-catering apartments-, a wide range of activities including water sports, golf, sailing, horse-riding and skiing, experienced and professional wedding planners and also most people on the island speak English.
All towns have their own municipal offices where couples can get their marriage licence and get married.
If a couple prefers a religious ceremony, they must first apply for their marriage licence at the municipal offices and then make arrangements for the ceremony to take place at the religious venue of their choice. For a full list of all municipal offices and religious venues go to visitcyprus.com
