Does the stunning Cyprus coast remind you of family holidays when you were little? If so, it might be one of the reasons why you are leaning towards what Paphos wedding planners can offer you and your groom-to-be?
You wouldn’t be the only one considering a beach wedding for nostalgic reasons. Culture Map Houston recently told the story of a bride who married her boyfriend after a whirlwind romance on a favourite stretch of shoreline because of the happy memories it conjured of her childhood.
Lila Malone, who met her husband Mitchell on a blind date, knew they would marry three months after meeting when they went on a getaway to a beach she knew very well from vacations with her parents.
They then chose that beach to tie the knot, beguiled by the romance of the shore at sunset and the importance of that part of the world due to its ties to the bride’s family.
“We went for fun and a less-is-more feel. We had these beautiful palms, sand dunes and the beach around us, so we worked with that,” said the bride.
The wedding dinner was a highlight for the happy couple, who opted for lobster to feed family and friends at a local restaurant owned by family friends, who brought back the dish especially for the Malone nuptials.
If a Cyprus wedding is on the cards because it reminds you of family holidays, then consider weaving some Cypriot traditions into your day, such as serving a ceremonial bread called kouloruia at the reception, or wearing a traditional stefana head band.
