With its golden beaches and romantic sunsets, many couples choose the idyllic island of Cyprus to exchange their vows. Whether you opt for a religious or civil ceremony, the Pafos Region has a vast number of reliable and professional services, available on hand, to ensure your bespoke occasion will be both memorable and flawless.
Prior to booking: Decide on the type of wedding ceremony, venue, chosen date and alternative date, and inform your wedding organiser or municipal marriage office to reserve it for you. Next, consider the whole day and how you envisage your own reception, guests and budget.
Booking: Pafos has many tour operators, either internet-based or local wedding organisers, and planners who are able to help with this.
The next step involves deciding on what you would like for your special day. A wide range of wedding packages is available to choose from, or you can decided on a tailor-made wedding according to your needs. Perhaps you want special transport arrangements or vintage French champagne; there is a wide range of food and beverage menus, vast choice of accommodation, and plenty of professional videographers, photographers and florists to turn your dream wedding into reality. Ask your wedding planners/organisers for ideas and suggestions.
Two to three months prior to departure: Our advice is to concentrate on all the paperwork required, as well as the wedding dress, suits, and invitations in your home country. Your arrangements in Pafos will already be well in hand.
One month prior to departure: If you are worried about anything, or have any last minute enquiries, simply call your wedding planner/organiser to reassure you throughout the process.
A few days prior to departure: Check the weather forecast in Cyprus, and look forward to spending leisure time in the sun.
Checklist: Ensure that all necessary flight documentation and medical test requirements are completed; passports, wedding rings, outfits and accessories, currency, sun cream and after-sun lotion. Make sure that you have packed everything that you need, then double-check.
Welcome to Pafos: The day after your arrival, your wedding coordinator or travel advisor will usually visit you and guide you through all the necessary pre-wedding appointments and formalities. Make the most of the days before your wedding; relax at the beach or by the pool and top up your tan, enjoy a massage or Jacuzzi, have a few cocktails and watch the sunset over the alluring waters of the Mediterranean.
