Church Weddings

Church Weddings in Cyprus

We can arrange both Anglican and Catholic Church weddings for you here in Cyprus.  Anglican weddings are the most popular, and it isn’t necessary to have your Banns read before the wedding as is the case in the UK. Anglican weddings can take place in any of the local churches and also at selected wedding venues such as hotels and private venues which have been approved by the church office, so if your dream is to have a wedding outside in the sun, we are able to arrange this for you.  It is possible to have an Anglican wedding if either or both the bride and groom have been divorced.  Catholic church weddings are a little more complicated to arrange as the church requires each couple to go through the prenuptial enquiry process with  their local priest, so you should allow 6 months to complete this process and the necessary paperwork.  Catholic weddings can only take place in a church and must be preceded by a civil ceremony which can take place in one of the local Town Halls, either on the morning of the wedding day or the day before whichever you prefer.

This is an extremely popular venue for both Anglican or a  Catholic church weddings so early booking is essential in order to secure your chosen date. This beautiful modern chapel is located in an elevated position next to St Georges Hotel in Chloraka. The chapel has stunning decorative frescoes covering the entire inside of the chapel and can hold up to 30 seated guests and no more than 40 people comfortably so is ideal for the smaller wedding parties.

This Byzantine style church was built around the 13th century and is a very popular venue for both an Anglican and Catholic Church Wedding ceremony.

This beautiful chapel is located right by the sea in the heart of the tourist area close to the hotels. It is the iconic image of a blue roofed church by the sea for  stunning church weddings virtually on the beach. The church is surprisingly large inside and can easily hold a party of 50-60 guests. There is an additional 200 Euro hire fee payable to the Greek Orthodox Church who donate this to local charities.
