When you look back at the weddings our parents had and compare them to the ceremonies and celebrations being held today, it’s easy to see that things have changed when it comes to tying the knot.
One trend that seems to be growing in popularity is having outdoor weddings. A recent article for Cosmopolitan noted that millennials are increasingly interested in civil ceremonies, rather than religious ones, and that alternative and outdoor locations are rising in popularity.
However, there are some nods to tradition in these more modern services, wedding stylist at Ashdown and Bee Melissa Murray told the publication.
“For outside ceremonies, lots of couples will have a custom arch or altar for their ceremony – whether it’s a curved arch, or a square, or something more unusual – to frame that magical moment in the same way,” she stated.
Of course, in the UK you can’t guarantee you’ll have the weather for an outdoor ceremony, so if you want to make sure that you really can tie the knot under the open sky, you might want to look into wedding packages in Cyprus.
The island has many associations with Aphrodite, the goddess of love, and is a beautiful location for a wedding. There are also a range of options when it comes to where you can have your ceremony, from one of the isle’s traditional churches, to a stunning beach or even at one of Cyprus’ forts.
Other more unusual places you can have your wedding service on Cyprus include the Ethnographic Museum, which has a gorgeous private courtyard, and at The Hamam, which has been beautifully restored and even boasts its own small waterfall.
