Expats in North Cyprus

Many British expats are now living in North Cyprus. The area offers an excellent lifestyle for British expats looking for a higher standard of living for a lower cost, either when they give up work and draw their pensions, or for young families.

​For couples with young children the education system in North Cyprus is very good, with a range of English speaking nursery and primary schools.

People visiting the island quickly fall in love with the unspoilt beauty and slow pace of life - and the crime rate is almost non-existent. Although less commericalised than the south, there are still British pubs and sports bars, a buzzing nightlife in Kyrenia, and English is widely spoken. Expats living in North Cyprus will also find a vast array of clubs and societies dedicated to Brits.

The climate is warm and sunny even in January, there are English newspapers and the cars drive on the left - making it a home from home for British expats in North Cyprus without the rain!

Although the general cost of living has increased over the past few years as popularity has grown, whilst it remains out of the Euro Zone, it is still a very cheap place to live and property for sale in North Cyprus offers some of the best value in the Mediterranean. Alcohol and cigarettes in North Cyprus are exceptionally cheap and many people living in the south will cross the border to buy these. It is also easy for people living in the north to cross the border to the south, where there are a wider range of well known shops and department stores. (A passport is needed to cross).

However, although living costs are low, if you are planning to work in the country you should bear in mind that the average wage is also very low.

Sun and Heat Protection during an Outdoor Wedding

If you have decided to opt for an outdoor wedding under the North Cyprus sun, it is important to stop and consider all the aspects of an outdoor wedding? You and your guests might be outside for many hours throughout the day, and the last thing you want is for you or your guests to be burnt for pictures and leave the wedding early because they are sun-fried, so here are some sun protection tips to keep in mind whether you're the bride, groom or guest at an outdoor wedding:

1. Do not tan in a salon or outdoor prior to the wedding. Tanning of any sort is bad for your skin and can cause peeling right before the wedding.

2. If you want to get the outdoor tanned look, opt for self-tanning products that will give you the same effect without harming your skin. There are many lotions and foams that work wonders on the skin.

3. Make sure you apply sunscreen numerous times throughout the day. Encourage your guests to do so as well. Indicate on the invitation that the wedding is outdoors and remind them to bring sunscreen - or even hand out small decorative bottles of sunscreen as an early wedding favor for your guests.

4. Try and avoid the sun as much as possible between the hours of 10am and 4pm. The sun's rays are strongest at these times. Perhaps it's a good idea to get pictures closer to the morning or early afternoon,

before anyone is too tired (or burnt) from the sun.

5. Pack (and tell your guests to pack) cover-ups, shawls, wraps and hats for protection against the heat of the sun. Shawls are perfect for covering up your shoulders since they are a prime area for burns.

6. The wedding coordinator can help ensure there are tents and umbrellas for shade. This is very important because spending the entire day in the sun with no shade can cause heat exhaustion and be harmful to your health.

7. Finally, make sure there is plenty of water for you and your guests. There's nothing worse than being hot and thirsty. Lack of water can cause dehydration which can be very dangerous for you and your

guests. Have water coolers setup in different areas so they are easily accessible for everyone.

Keep in mind the precautions listed above. It will ensure that your wedding goes smoothly for you and your guests. After all, it is the most important day of your life and you don't want to take any chances of something ruining your special day!

Getting married in North Cyprus

Convenience, climate and cost - just 3 reasons to get married in North Cyprus.

Getting married in North Cyprus is now becoming very popular for many reasons - it is far less developed than the South and offers a lot more natural beauty and stunning scenery. North Cyprus is a hidden jewel in the Mediterranean with the dramatic backdrop of the Kyrenia mountains, castles and miles of idyllic beaches.

Being out of the Eurozone, the costs of getting married are much lower, almost half of what you would pay in the UK and it is perfectly legal and recognised worldwide, to get married in Northern Cyprus.

The picturesque port town of Kyrenia and its harbour have been described by The Mail on Sunday’s You Magazine as “One of the most beautiful sights in the world,” with cobbled streets and ancient stone buildings, it will guarantee a memorable wedding album.

Close by and perched on the clifftops, is the magical Bellapais Abbey, a fairytale ruined monastery dating from the early 13th century. Illuminated at night and offering stunning views during the day, it has an enchanting quality that you and your guests will never forget.

But if it's a paradise beach wedding you're after, North Cyprus has many that are picture perfect. With clear azure water, golden sand and dramatic craggy coastlines, they are famous for wildlife so you might even glimpse a turtle or dolphin as you take your marriage vows.

If the prospect of the red tape and organisation required for getting married in North Cyprus worries you, Angelic Events can take care of everything for you, from picking the perfect venue, arranging the legal paperwork, photographers, caterers and other suppliers to finding accommodation for yourselves and your guests.
