Do you meet us when we arrive?
Yes we will make an appointment to visit once you are in resort to finalize the plans for your special day.
Is our wedding legal in the UK?
Rest assured that your Cyprus wedding is completely legal and recognised by UK law. However, due to Brexit you will be required to register your marriage at your local registrar in the UK.
Is the ceremony Greek?
No. Everything is in English including the paperwork and ceremony. You will be asked to sign 3 copies of your marriage certificate (bride signs in old name) of which you will be given one copy at the ceremony. You do not have to get it translated when you arrive home unlike most countries.
How long do we have to be in Cyprus before we can marry?
A minimum of 3 working days.
Can we have candles?
Yes we can provide candles and flowers floating in bowls of water. We can also have candles but they must be in glass holders covering the flame.
Can we as family and friends book extras for the Bride & Groom?
Yes you can email us or phone us to book and pay. Just advise us you do not want the couple to know as it is a wedding present. We love secrets.
What are GERBS?
Gerbs are stage fireworks. You would have them at the end of the night on either side of the red carpet for you both to walk through. Again a great idea if you do not tell your guests. A big WOW to the end of the night.
Please note these are allowed dependent on venue.
If we get married abroad, will many guests attend?
We found most couples surprised and delighted by amount of family and friends willing to travel to wedding abroad.
Will there be fresh flowers available in high season?
Cyprus offers a wide range of beautiful fresh flowers all year round.
How many guests may we have?
The majority of civil wedding venues can hold 150 guests, although we do do have intimate civil ceremony venues that hold 2-10 guests.
