Looking for year-round charm in weddings abroad to delight? Look no further: Charming Cyprus awaits…
If the thought of a reliably hot and sunny British summer seems just a tad optimistic, but your budget won’t stretch to a trans-atlantic flight, why not consider a short-haul relocation to the beautiful island of Cyprus for stunning weddings abroad? With year-round sunshine, sensational scenery, and impeccable hospitality, it is not surprising that Cyprus was ranked No. 1 for short-haul weddings abroad according to specialist AITO tour operator, Planet Weddings. A wedding abroad here and you’re in excellent company: Cyprus has been attracting celebrities to its shores to say ‘I do’ for centuries, from Richard the Lionheart and Princess Berengaria of Navarre in 1191, to Peter Andre’s brother last year!
A huge collection of beaches, luxury additions, rustic charm and characterful venues are featured by Planet Weddings across Cyprus to ensure couples can follow in famous footsteps too, or create something totally different to suit their characters and tastes. Tailor-made weddings is Planet Weddings speciality and managing director, Mathilde Robert, awarded by the Cyprus Tourism Organisation for introducing weddings to the island in the ’80s, continues to be regarded (even by her competitors) as the ‘doyenne of weddings’ for a Cypriot wedding.
Picture perfect Paphos – this year celebrating becoming a European Capital of Culture, 2017 – is a UNESCO World Heritage Listed city and boasts a vibrant coastal resort that attracts many couples looking to say ‘I do’, even in such unusual places as the Enthnographical Museum. Cosmopolitan Limassol has plenty to offer, too, from newly decked areas by the sea front to delightful chapels. Church weddings in Cyprus can be Anglican, Catholic, or any denomination… even on the beach (although we love these beautiful frescos below adorning a centuries-old stone chapel… ah, the romance!).
Brides-to-be with an indulgent budget ought to consider the Park Lane Luxury Collection & Spa, which opens in 2018, and for a real, authentic, show-stopping event, the town of Larnaka boasts a 12th-century castle, beach locations as well as a stunning Catholic Church, Terra Santa, founded by Franciscan monk Callixte Martel in 1596 .
Steeped in the mystical past, Cyprus cannot help but speak the language of love. It is, after all, the legendary birthplace of Aphrodite, Goddess of love, beauty and sexuality… WHAT a heady mix that is! … what a perfect combination… what a perfect wedding destination!
