If you have decided that you want to go abroad to celebrate your wedding, there are even more added extras involved that you will have to think about, and then of course, there’s getting there. Here at Villa Mosaica, we know all about the trials and tribulations brides and grooms face when it comes to planning their wedding day, which is why we’ve put together a guide to help you unravel the details and consider how to approach it all.
For couples who simply want to focus on taking their vows and having the best day possible, our wedding planning service works alongside our holiday villas, providing a complete all in one package. Weddings in Cyprus are easy to arrange and affordable, when done the right way and we offer various packages that are guaranteed to make your day as special as possible. Here we will show you how we can help to take some of the weight off your shoulders as you plan your overseas wedding.
Why weddings in Cyprus?
Cyprus is home to beautiful sunshine all year round. It gets 330 days of sunshine on average each year, so the likelihood of you having a perfect day for your wedding is high. It’s also got gorgeous beaches, the history and culture is rich, the food is delicious and the locals are a friendly bunch too.
Cyprus wedding laws are modern and up-to-date, and they are internationally recognised. It’s also generally cheaper to get married in Cyprus than it is in UK, so you’d be saving yourself a fair bit of money – and flight connections are regular and cost-effective.
This will be your first thought when it comes to your wedding day. The location needs to be somewhere that you both love, and is a place that you would love to share with your closest family and friends. When planning a wedding abroad, it can be harder to choose a venue as you might not be able to visit it firsthand. Sometimes that can be exciting, as it makes the day even more special – but understandably, you want to make sure it suits what you’re truly looking for.
Weddings in Cyprus are made possible with us, as we offer a few different venue options. Would you like to have your wedding on the beach? Or perhaps you want your wedding in a quiet, secluded location? We offer both options in our wedding packages, and your own personal wedding coordinator will ensure that everything you ask for is brought to life. Although you might not be able to see the property before you arrive, you can browse the locations online and read reviews from people who have had their wedding with us – and we guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
If your chosen wedding venue is in a rural area and your reception is a drive away, it’s important to consider how you are going to transport your guests between venues. You won’t want to splash out on lavish limos or chauffeurs to take your guests (except the bride and the family, perhaps) everywhere, so a location where wedding and reception take place together can often be a good option.
Villa Mosaica offer just that. We offer a beautiful venue, which can be at one of our luxurious wedding villas of your choosing, and everything can take place in one spot so you won’t need to move between venues. Imagine not having to worry about that? It saves time, money and hassle, so you can simply relax and enjoy your day.
Decoration and Flowers
The colour scheme and decoration of your wedding day is something that all brides want to get right. The research and organisation into this can be long if you have a particular idea in mind. Trying to find someone local, and at the right price, who can offer exactly what you’re after can be difficult too. You might want to have a think about the location and time of year that you’re getting married, as this can really help you define a style that suits the occasion.
What if we could do that for you? We offer to organise all of this for you, as part of our weddings in Cyprus service. You can choose from one of our complete packages or you can create your own bespoke one if you have particular colours and flowers in mind.
After you’ve completed your marriage registration and you begin celebrating with your nearest and dearest, it’s time to cut that all important wedding cake to seal your wedding vows. You might want a simple cake without too much decoration, or maybe you want the grandest three-tier going to stand out at your reception.
We can arrange the perfect cake for you, if you just tell us exactly what you’re after. We have a number of suppliers that we work with locally for our weddings in Cyprus, and they have experience of creating beautiful wedding cakes for all the ceremonies that we’ve held at our venues over the years.
You will want someone to capture your perfect day on camera, so that you can cherish the memories forever. A photographer is an essential aspect of any wedding day, and you’ll want someone who is experienced and can capture the true essence of your day.
More often than not, the bride and groom and their family will often leave the venue after the wedding ceremony for an hour or two, to take photos at a nearby location. It’s a time when guests are left to enjoy canapes and drinks in the meantime.
The reason we are unique, is because we can take away that need to leave the venue for photographs. Our photographer will come to take photos of you and your family in your own private space, in the beautiful grounds of your chosen villa venue for your wedding in Cyprus. The rest of your party can sit back and relax in the surroundings of the villa.
Of course, you can’t forget the necessary flights when going abroad for a wedding. Depending on how many guests you have at your wedding, you will want to secure flights fairly early on – as soon as you have a date at your chosen venue.
Direct flights to Cyprus are currently available from London, Manchester and Birmingham, with a flight time of 4 hours 50 minutes. Other airports also fly, but with a stopover in a European city.
Offering accommodation to your guests prior to your wedding day can result in people staying in various different hotels nearby – and availability not always being guaranteed.
Along with our wedding service, we offer three large Cyprus holiday villas that can accommodate up to 40 guests, all next to each other. There are shared communal areas, large kitchen and dining facilities, and a private swimming pool with gardens at each property. Weddings in Cyprus can also take place at one of these villas, meaning that you won’t all need to travel far at all, and you will be together while you enjoy the special occasion.
