Hotel Weddings & Receptions

Hotel Wedding Venues

There are many Hotel Wedding Venues in Paphos, for both civil and Anglican weddings. Most of the hotels have beautiful beachside gardens for both ceremony and reception. Each hotel gernerally has a selection of attractive indoor and outdoor locations for wedding parties of varying sizes. Most hotels do expect you to stay at your the hotel for a minimum number of nights in order to have your wedding there, although there are one or two that do not. There are too many hotels to list, but here are some of our favourites, most of which guarantee only one wedding per day so you will not be sharing your big day with other brides.

Bear in mind that most all-inclusive hotels do make a charge for special wedding meals, and will also expect guests who are not staying at the hotel to purchase a day pass.  This pass will entitle them to use the hotel facilities and have drinks throughout the day, so take this into account when working out your wedding prices.
