MARRIED IN CYPRUS
DREAM DESTINATION WEDDING IN CYPRUS
Getting Married in Cyprus – This luxury dream wedding destination offers an array of picturesque wedding venues for every bride and groom looking for the ultimate Cyprus wedding. We spoke to Rob and Heather Berry who live near Wigan in the UK to find out more about their wedding in Cyprus which took place on 17th July 2019. They used Marry Me Cyprus Ltd, one of the most recommended and best wedding planners in Cyprus, to achieve their dream destination wedding. In Heather’s words, “Katie put my dream into reality … we have made a true friend for life”.
WHY DID YOU SELECT CYPRUS FOR YOUR WEDDING?
Initially, we had everything booked for our wedding in the Lake District for 19th November 2018, but then Rob decided one evening he wanted to do it abroad. He had no reason for doing this but just changed his mind! I am a true believer that things happen for a reason and sure enough, Rob’s mother had a stroke two weeks before we would have been married in England. Thankfully, she recovered and was with us at our wedding in Cyprus! It was magical.
WHAT COLOUR SCHEME AND DÉCOR DID YOU SELECT FOR YOUR WEDDING IN CYPRUS?
We went for vintage blue and dusky pink with gold. Katie put my dream into reality. I wanted a soft and floaty romantic wedding theme with flowers and candles. We had rose petals on the aisle and a gazebo decorated with white flowers and small vintage blue and dusky pink flowers dotted in it. The table had candelabras down the centre with a runner of soft flowers surrounding it, and tiny tea light candles. Charger plates edged in gold, and on each plate, a pale pink rose for the ladies and a sprig of olive leaves for the men – each with a gold name tag.
WHAT WAS THE BEST THING ABOUT WORKING WITH MARRY ME CYPRUS?
Marry Me Cyprus made our wedding in Cyprus so easy! Nothing was too much trouble, and I had everything I had imagined for my wedding day. Katie knew what I wanted when I asked for it. I could message and call at any time, and I would always be reassured. Everything was organised to perfection. We knew exactly when we had to do certain things, and they gave us all the information to do it. They arranged so much more than just the wedding. They arranged a boat trip one evening for our wedding party, organised a last-minute taxi for one of the guests and recommended restaurants near our villas. Katie also personally arranged petals and champagne for our hotel room. It’s the small things that make a big difference. We have made a true friend for life. The whole team at Marry Me Cyprus are wonderful. We would do it all again in a heartbeat.
ANY WEDDING ADVICE FOR OTHER COUPLES LOOKING TO GET MARRIED IN CYPRUS?
Definitely use a reputable wedding planner! Enjoy every minute of the holiday, as well as the wedding. It was the best holiday with family and close friends we have ever had and will be returning as a big group in the future. I took lots of things over in suitcases which I did not need, as everything for your wedding in Cyprus is available from Marry Me Cyprus.
WHERE DID YOU GET MARRIED IN CYPRUS?
We got married at Liopetro Wedding Venue in Kouklia, which is a beautiful village just outside Paphos. It is very well known for the privacy that the location affords and also the quality of their menus. The family-owned wedding venue in Paphos offers the ultimate rustic wedding destination in Cyprus. Set amongst beautifully landscaped gardens, the Liopetro is often described by other couples who have held their weddings there as the, “meant to be venue”. It also offers a variety of different venues to hold the actual ceremony from the 12th Century Church Panagia Odigitria to the Aphrodite Circle.
HOW DID YOU HEAR ABOUT MARRY ME CYPRUS?
I decided to search the wedding groups on Facebook specifically for weddings in Cyprus and came across Marry Me Cyprus, which was recommended a lot.
WHAT WAS THE BEST PART OF YOUR WEDDING DAY?
Do I need to pick? It was all just so amazing. Absolutely everything from arriving at the venue and being greeted by Katie to the venue owners Makis and Ifi. Getting ready with my bridesmaids and Mum was a beautiful part of the day. I had the fantastic Shelley doing my wedding makeup and hair. The photographers Aimie and Nick, and Liam the videographer. Katie saved me when my dress wouldn’t fasten (we have the photographic evidence). It was all just so perfect, and even now, people are still talking about the wedding and saying how it was the best wedding they have ever attended.
