Peyia Municipality nets €350,000 from civil weddings in 2019

Peyia Municipality generated revenue of €350,000 from civil weddings last year, a municipality official told the Cyprus News Agency on Thursday.

She said that 700 couples had tied the knot in a civil ceremony in Peyia in 2019, up from 650 in 2018. The majority were from the UK, Russia, Lebanon and Israel. The busiest months were May, June and September.
