Planning ahead for a dreamy celebration abroad? Our Cyprus wedding experts, Planet Weddings, have trawled Cyprus from the east coast to the west in search of the most beautiful beach wedding venues. Be warned these amazing beach wedding destinations might do the opposite to narrowing down your options for a wedding abroad – you’ll want them all!
If the lure of a sandy beach, turquoise Mediterranean Sea, sunny sky and relaxed island vibe is hard to beat, then consider Blue Waters in Pernera on Cyprus’ eastern coast.
Civil weddings don’t get any more civilised than this, the team at Paralimni Town Hall has created a large shaded platform facing the beachfront (saving your shoes!) to enjoy an outdoor wedding location that includes that unmissable azure sea. From there you can walk a few minutes to Filoxenia restaurant where you can have a private reception with your own DJ.
Alternatively head towards Ayia Napa where you will find the Aphrodite Beach venue. Decorate the purpose-built pavilion to suit your type of wedding with a minimum of 20 people and a maximum of 100, you can opt for a barbecue reception and enjoy the ‘chill out’ area for chilled champagne or cocktails.
Further along the coast is Sotira with a beach that’s fit for a Siren, in fact it is called Sirens Beach. The wonderful coastline here is where couples can say ‘I do’ as the turquoise waters lap the white sands.
From the east coast to the popular west coast of the island, we recommend couples head in this direction to savour the most spectacular of sunsets. Consider Atlantida by the sea, the wedding takes place either on the beach itself (feet in the sand) or in their gardens facing the beach with a beach bar and restaurant perfect for fish mezze or for a proper barbecue and then a DJ or live band can ensure that couples and their guests dance the night away under a canopy of twinkling stars.
For something new, there’s Ktima Alassos, a secluded and private venue on the outskirts of Paphos in the Coral Beach area. Here, Planet Weddings continue to guarantee just one wedding a day and that they’ll be sorting out decorations and themes to ensure the venue looks and feels exactly as you’ve always wanted.
All the little wedding extras are what Planet Weddings specialise in and their local wedding co-ordinators will source just about anything. From start to finish they’ll be with you every step of the way, in the UK and in resort, so that the attention to detail is second to none.
