Wedding Venues in Cyprus
Ayia Kyriaki,St Paul's Pillar, Paphos
Ayia Kyriaki, Church of St Paul's Pillar, Paphos
church in Paphos dates back to the early 16th century and
nearby is reputedly the pillar where St Paul was lashed 39
times when he visited the island almost 2000 years ago. Excavation
still goes on at the site today.
It is a beautiful old Greek Orthodox church where many many
traditional Anglican and Catholic marriage ceremonies are
conducted today. Music is from the church organ, and the organist
is happy to try and accommodate your music choices wherever
possible. Unfortunately, the accoustics of the church do not
lend themselves to taped music, or CD music.
Confetti is allowed, albeit once the marriage party are over
The ceremony is in English and lasts about 20-30 minutes If
conducted by an Anglican Priest, then no Civil Ceremony is
required beforehand. If, however, it is conducted by a Catholic
Priest, then a Civil Ceremony is required before the church
ceremony, as a Catholic Priest has no authority to conduct
weddings in Cyprus.
Should you require candles throughout your Wedding Service,
it is advisable to bring your own!
As the church already has floral decorations, only a minimal
amount of arrangements can be used in the church.
The ceremony will cost Cy£300

St George's Chapel
St George's is a relatively new (about 40 years old), small
chapel, seating about 26 guests, although there is a limited
amount of standing room., up to about another 30. Both Anglican
and Catholic ceremonies are conducted here, in English. There
are magnificent frescoes decorating the ceiling and walls
of the chapel.
The chapel is air-conditioned. Unfortunately because of the
steps leading up to the chapel it could present difficulties
for disabled guests.
As with Ayia Kyriaki, should you require candles for your
service, it is wise to bring your own!
CD's and taped music are permitted here, there is a CD player,
although there is a wide variety of music available, including
the Wedding March!

The Municipality is in the grounds of the Town Hall and is
a very romantic setting for a civil wedding service, with
room for around 100 guests.
The service lasts about 10 - 15 minutes and is conducted in
English. Couples receive a copy of the wedding vows to keep
after the service.
Music is optional, but the local musicians provide a very
romantic addition to the bridal party's walk, and the ceremony.
