Cyprus, although well known as a beach paradise, is a destination that is so much more. From the country’s mind-blowing historical ruins and pretty mountain villages to the foodie hotspots of the capital, this place has so much to offer. But most of all, it’s a wonderful place reserved for old school romantics. Weddings don’t get any more indulgent than a Cyprus wedding, and with those magical Cypriot sunsets, your wedding guests will be swept off their feet by the views.
Inspired? Here are 5 incredible Cyprus wedding venues that will have you falling head over heels in love all over again.
The Annabelle, Paphos
It’s known as one of the romantic cities in the world and with several sites dedicated to Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love, it’s easy to see why – Paphos is definitely a destination for lovebirds. Located along the seafront, the 5 star Annabelle is the perfect venue for relaxation, a great place for the wedding party (and guests) to wind down and enjoy the gorgeous beaches. Further along the coast in Old Paphos (Kouklia) is the famous Aphrodite’s Rock, an ancient landmark worth visiting. The Annabelle is lavishly decorated throughout and weddings can be catered for all group sizes, from 20 people to 200.
Another spectacular venue along the stunning coast of Paphos is Almyra. Situated on Alykes Beach with beautiful landscaped gardens and views of the fishing harbour, this hotel provides an unbelievable backdrop for the perfect Cyprus wedding. The expert wedding team promise to help you “channel your inner Greek goddess, Aphrodite-style” and can take over all the planning to make your wedding abroad as stress-free as possible.
Amathus Beach Hotel, Limassol
Limassol is a coastal city known for its incredible history and beautiful ruins. Some of its best-known sights include Limassol Castle and its tombstones, Limassol Archaeological Museum, and the Amathus Ruins. It’s also a great wedding destination for couples who love the beach; one of our favourite places to stay is the Amathus Beach Hotel. This 5 star luxury oasis is set within colourful gardens and boasts amazing panoramic views of the Mediterranean Sea.
Olympic Lagoon Resort, Ayia Napa
For an ultra-modern setting with all the luxurious touches, the Olympic Lagoon in Ayia Napa is a highly recommended venue. Located close to Nissi Beach, you’ll be close to the area’s famously buzzing nightlife and there will be a fabulous choice of bars, restaurants and nightclubs for a weeklong wedding celebration. Wedding packages include a choice of settings, such as the indoor function halls, outdoor banqueting areas, amidst the landscaped gardens, or a custom designed area to the bride and groom’s liking.
Grecian Park Hotel, Protaras
Set in Eastern Cyprus in the pretty resort town of Protaras, the Grecian Park Hotel offers peace, quiet and relaxation, but guests will find popular hotspots such as Ayia Napa easily accessible by taxi. So the bride, groom and guests can really get the best of both worlds; whether you love the hustle and bustle of a party resort or you prefer a quaint destination with excellent amenities, you will definitely fall in love with the views. Ceremonies here will overlook Cape Greco and there’s also a spa for the bridal party to pamper the night before.
Wherever you choose to have your special day, the friendly Cypriot hospitality and guaranteed sunshine will ensure that you have an incredible wedding that you will fondly remember forever.
