In Peyia, the civil ceremony begins with a traditional CD rendition of ‘Here Comes the Bride’ for the entry of the bride. The marriage officer joins the ceremony after the bride arrives.
Of course, it is entirely your choice what music you decide to use for both the entry of the bride and the exit of the newlyweds and guests.
During the ceremony the couple remains standing as it is quite short, lasting about eight minutes.
Who gives the bride away is always her personal choice. However, two witnesses, each over the age of 18, need to attend. The witnesses can be chosen by you, the couple. If you do not have any witnesses, two will be provided by the Town Hall and Ido Cyprus Wedding Planners.
Ceremonies at Peyia Town Hall can take place between 8:30am and 2pm from Monday to Friday.
After a civil ceremony, the marriage licence is issued immediately. The document is in English and does not need to be altered in any way nor registered on your return to the UK. The licence can be used to make changes with any official documents such as passports or bank information if necessary.
Ido Weddings would suggest that you obtain an extra copy of the licence on your wedding day. The current cost for this is €13.67.
Prior to your wedding day, Ido Cyprus Wedding Planners will assist you with all documentation required in order for the ceremony to take place.
The current cost of a compulsory marriage licence fee and ceremony is €281.92.
Peyia is normally recommended by couples who held their ceremonies there in the past – and for good reason! The wedding venue location is truly one of the prettiest in Paphos. The quaint setting is surrounded by lush Cypriot flowers and trees with an old, traditional village spring in the background. The atmosphere is ideal for photographs and videos. Ido Weddings recommends a professional service in order to capture the spirit of the day perfectly.
For those staying in the Coral Bay area it is close to their hotel or villa, making it more convenient than other civil ceremony venues.
However, it is very important for couples to bear in mind that climate needs to be taken into consideration for an outdoor ceremony. The months of May and September have proven to be a huge success.
