How to Get Started
Many couples looking to get married in Cyprus just don’t know where to start when choosing a ceremony or reception venue so I’ve designed my wedding venues guide with this in mind, in the hope it makes choosing a venue so much easier. Follow my guide and don’t forget if I don’t list a venue it doesn’t mean I don’t do it so if you find a venue you like, I’m happy to do all the ground work for you. Don’t see what you want just tell me what you’re looking for and take advantage of my complementary wedding venue finding service.
What to consider when choosing a venue?
STEP 1: Decide what type of service you require, are you looking for a Civil or Religious Ceremony?
Paphos has many Civil Ceremony Venues, from the traditional town hall, to beautiful gardens, villas, hotels, castles, traditional Cyprus Taverna’s and even Yachts! Don’t forget religious ceremonies here in Cyprus don’t have to take place in one of the two churches why not choose one of the pretty hotel chapels found in many of the hotel grounds here in Paphos.
STEP 2: Consider the time of year you want to get married?
Cyprus has on average 300 days of sunshine a year, which is one of the reasons it’s so popular with UK couples wishing to get married. But don’t get spell bound by the idea of a wedding in the hottest months. August is the hottest month in Paphos with an average temperature of 26°C (78°F) in the shade and the coldest is January at 13°C (55°F) with the most daily sunshine hours at 14 in July. The wettest month is December with an average of 100mm of rain. So think carefully about getting married in the hotter months and if you do decide on these months then consider what shade the ceremony venue offer
STEP 3: Consider the size of your wedding party?
Many of the venues in Paphos are suited to all size groups, but don’t forget to take this into consideration as some smaller intimate venues do have their limitations.
STEP 4: Think about the style of wedding you both want?
Your wedding should be a reflection of both your personalities so think about this, do you want a modern, fun, romantic, relaxed, alternative, traditional English or even traditional Cypriot STYLE wedding.
STEP 5: Think about who will attend, will there be children, elderly or disabled relatives at the ceremony?
You may need to consider a child friendly venue, You might need to consider access to the venue & some venues don’t provide seats for the guests so consider any elderly guests who may need a seat during the ceremony.
STEP 6: Consider your budget, there is nothing worse than falling in love with a venue then finding out it's not within your budget. Here at Tie the Knot Cyprus Weddings by Vicki, I tailor make all your wedding packages to your requirements and budget but I’m constantly asked by new brides for an idea on the cost of a wedding here in Cyprus. As with UK weddings the cost of a wedding here in Cyprus can vary depending on location and the amount of guests you have, but to help with this I’ve chosen a few different venues and put together some sample packages to give new couples an idea on the cost of a wedding here on the island of love. I've attached these samples for you to look at.
STEP 7: Do you want the reception to be in the same place as the Ceremony?
Paphos has some great Ceremony & Reception Venues in addition to the Hotel Weddings, so why not consider one of the Combo Venues it can reduce your transport costs and can make for a smooth transition from Ceremony to Reception.
