Destination Weddings have been trending for a while now, and for very good reason. But with the world at your feet, how do you choose the right location? Let us give you the low down on everything you need to know about why you should choose Cyprus for your wedding.
This might just be the easiest blog we’ve ever written, thanks to all the advantages Cyprus has to offer. Be it a civil wedding, a religious ceremony or a renewal of your vows. Cyprus is ready and waiting to offer you the most amazing celebration and holiday destination.
With it’s incredible climate, stunning coastline and something for every type of guest, it really is the perfect, no compromise option.
Check out our top reasons why you should choose Cyprus for your wedding.
The weather in Cyprus is simply amazing! Which is thanks to its long hot summers and short mild winters. Statistically Cyprus enjoys an incredible 324 days of sunshine every year! Summer often starts as early as April going right through to the middle of November. And temperatures usually reach their peak in July and August.
Not many destinations offer such a long summer season!
Because of this gorgeous all year climate you can enjoy the perfect season for you. From an early summer wedding in April to something a little hotter in July or August or some late season sun from September onwards.
The East Coast is especially blessed with a beautiful selection of blue flag beaches. The resorts of Agia Napa, Protaras and Pernera each have stunning shorelines. Boasting powdery white sand and shallow crystal-clear waters.
Consequently, they’re consistently awarded a 100% score for the cleanest bathing waters in Europe. Forget that long-haul flight to the Caribbean, in just over four hours from the UK you can experience a coastline of your dreams.
When you consider the cost and the length of travel to a tropical destination, Cyprus offers the most idyllic beaches in Europe.
For British passport holders, Cyprus has very simple documentation requirements. In contrast, some countries have very complicated procedures which make the process much more difficult. Whereas Cyprus offers a clear and straightforward set of requirements.
A great advantage for UK passport holders is the fact that all documents are accepted in English which means that you don’t have the extra cost and trouble of translation. And, in most cases, they are documents you’re already be in possession of.
And despite the UK’s departure from the EU, it still remains one of the easiest locations in terms of the documents needed to arrange your marriage license. You can check our Documentation Services for extra help in this area.
Cyprus has no shortage of stunning locations for your vows and the celebrations that follow. And there is something for every taste and budget.

This is a great option for people who like to keep things simple and do everything in one place. Most hotels also offer romantic treats for the wedding couple to make their stay extra special too.
There are some incredible private villas as well, which give lots of freedom in terms of what you plan and who provides it. And naturally, they offer a sense of exclusivity and total privacy.
