Weddings and Love in North Cyprus

Weddings in North Cyprus at Kybele Bellapais

​by Marion Stuart

They say when you marry in June, you're a bride, all your life, and the boy who marries a June bride, has a sweetheart for a wife."  This song from the film Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is one with words that provide hope for a long and happy marriage .

Add to that the idea that Cyprus is the Island of Love which draws lovers to itself, and you have the perfect time and place for wedding.s Cyprus in June.

Several couples came to 'tie the knot' during the monthof June. Each of them different, with different stories as to how their love brought them to the point of pledging a lifelong commitment under the skies of the island of the Goddess of love.


Of the many, here are just two of those both taking place at the popular Kybele Restaurant, Bellapais. North Cyprus


The evening of the 7th June at the Kybele Restaurant (a favourite with many wedding couples) was one which smiled down on the wedding of Mentes Korucan and his bride Tanya from the Ukraine.  Earlier in the day, one bride had been bitterly disappointed as her outdoor wedding was well and truly rained 'off' and had to be brought inside. But the evening saw the clouds and rain disappear, and for Mentes and Tanya it was a perfect evening. Friends and family witnessed  a ceremony in which the couple exchanged vows. Tanya has limited English but was able to say a loud 'I do' .  Mentes who has spent time working in U.K, but who has had art exhibitions at Bellapais, had a dream that if he married it would be in that spot. Little did he realise that when he went to the Ukraine for a wedding that he would meet the girl of his dreams and be marrying her .  For many years Mentes had a mop of curly hair and created artistic works on canvas. Today he has lost the curls, and wrote a new episode on the canvas of his life on which is written the hope that all the dreams they share will become reality through the years as they continue to add colour and shape to the canvas of their joint lives.

Following the ceremony the guests enjoyed a splendid meal at Kybele Restaurant with a music duo creating background music and later music for dancing, as Mentes and Tanya started the late evening dancing.


When Adele Newby and Chris Kershaw began planning their wedding  nearly two years ago, they had a guest list which included Chris much loved father Stephen, and various grandparents and other relatives who meant much to the couple.  Sadly, when the day of their marriage dawned, (the 20th June) following a very sad period in their live,s all these beloved people, including the dog Holly, who had been the close companionof Stephen , had died. 

The couple, who had met at university in 2004 fell in love almost form day one, and became inseparable following their first date to the Zoo.  They even spent seven months touring the world and in their own words ' this gave us priceless memories and an incredible experience'.  Priceless memories are important to Adele and Chris and they were determined that the loved ones who should have been  there, were there. And so each of the lost loved ones were there, without paying air fare and without taking up a chair, and they were there in the hearts, in the genes, and the pockets and handbags of family. This is probably a first for Cyprus and in fact for the world, that some of the ashes of the lost loved ones were taken to the wedding . A wonderful touch that had great meaning.

Stephen Kershaw had a property at Lapta which meant that the couple had come many times to Cyprus, and before he even proposed, Chris knew this was th e place for the wedding of his (and her) dreams. 

The event was one full of love and support and some ninety nine guests witnessed the ceremonies when vows were exchanged and tears were shed , and thanks given for the main supporters of the day, Best men, Richard Kempson and Richard Kershaw, with bridesmaids Rebecca Newby, Isobel Newby, Lizzie Robinson, and Chloe Green.   Michelle and Tracey, the mothers of the couple both read moving pieces, with both declaring they hoped they would soon be grandmothers.The speeches which preceeded the bridal supper were full of humour and tales of the couple as children, some to the point of making them blush.   The couple from near Chester will be honeymooning later in the year in Singapore and Malaysia and promised on their return to try to make the future grandmothers happy.

Kybele under the guidance of wedding planner, Jade and Yonel Angelic Events, made the day perfect with their caring staff and well organised timetable.

Two pairs of sweethearts whose lives are part of North Cyprus and where Cyprus will continue to be part of their lives as Mentes a Turkish Cypriot pursues his career , and teaching his new wife English whilst tyring to learn Russian, and as Chris and Adele will return as they can to the home that Stephen has made a part of their lives.
