weddings and honeymoon in North Cyprus

​Outside the Eurozone yet close enough to be able to invite family and friends, it is little wonder that an increasing number of British couples are getting married in North Cyprus.

The Island basks in year-round sunshine and there are several stunning settings to choose from. North Cyprus wedding setting highlights include the pretty hillside village of Bellapais, with its dramatic 14th-century gothic Abbey; the Korineum Golf and Country Club, boasting breath-taking 360-degree coastal and mountain views; and not forgetting miles of glorious sandy beach.

Honeymoons in North Cyprus

Those choosing to honeymoon in North Cyprus are in good company: it is said that Richard the Lionheart spent his at St. Hilarion Castle near Kyrenia. The distinctive triple turret layout gives St. Hilarion something of a fairytale feel and is reputed to have inspired Walt Disney's Sleeping Beauty Castle.

From five-star luxury to intimate adults-only boutique hotels, there are many excellent accommodation options in North Cyprus, which are a great choice for a North Cyprus honeymoon.

Every single flower you may need for your wedding

Before meeting your wedding florist it is a good idea to put together a list of wedding flowers you may need. This will also help you with your budget. When arranging a wedding abroad it works slightly differently as you will be sending your ideas to your wedding planner to research your ideas. This list will help you and your wedding planner get you the best package possible.

​Firstly a checklist of flowers you may need 

personal flowers:

Brides bouquet

Bridesmaids bouquets ( can be bouquets, corsages, bracelets or hair flowers depending on your budget)

buttonholes for groom and ushers/bestman

Buttonholes/corsages for close family members

 Thank you bouquets

Ceremony flowers:

Entry or welcome decoration and flowers

ceremony table

Aisle decoration

Candles

Reception Flowers:

centrepieces for tables and top table

Candles

Lounge area decor and surrounding areaS

Bar arrangements or flowers

Cake and guest book table flowers and decor

When arranging a wedding in North Cyprus you must remember that some decor and flowers will not suit the weather conditions for example very delicate flowers wilt from the heat and humidity if you are having a wedding between mid June-Sept.  Wedding flowers in North Cyprus need to be ordered at least 2 months before the wedding date as all flowers are imported from overseas, therefore some flowers may be more costly than in the uk.

When working with our brides we like to have photos, ideas and moodboards sent over so that we can get you quotes based on your ideas.  We will also advise you if needed and give our ideas to help with your theme and special day.

Heres a list of All year around flowers:

1: Gerbera

2: cherry brandy rose

3: alstroemeria

4: Eucalyptus

5: Veronica

6: Lisianthus

7: Ocean song rose

8: Spray rose

9: Gypsophilia

10: cool water rose

11:lily

12: Spray chrysanthemum

14: hypericum berry

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.

Wedding dress advice for weddings in hot climates

So you have decided to marry in North Cyprus. Here are some do's and dont's advice before choosing your wedding dress

The dos…

Seek out lightweight fabrics such as tulle and chiffon. Chiffon is very flattering and cool, it won’t crease up after travelling and you can hang it in a steamy shower room and any small creases will fall out after just 20 minutes. Consider silk chiffon if you can afford it as it’s slightly more luxurious.

Consider a wedding dress with a low, sexy back, with strings of beads falling from shoulder to shoulder. This looks beautiful if you’ve managed to get a tan first and the guests will love looking at the back of your dress while you’re saying your vows.

Think about style details where the dress might have tulle or chiffon lengths of fabric that will catch the breeze. If your dress does have details like this, you may not need a traditional veil. Also look for pretty detailed necklines that will make up for the simplicity of the rest of the dress.

Always try to aim for a puddle train which literally means it sits behind your ankles like a puddle of fabric and doesn’t look too out of place on a beach or at a tropical resort.

The don’ts…

Avoid heavy, thick satins that will make you look and feel overdressed for the beach.Also, don’t buy a wedding dress with too many layers of petticoats, as they will stick to your legs in hot weather.

Steer clear of dresses with a heavy corset – they will make you sweat more and you’ll feel awkward and unable to breathe in high temperatures. Get the right underwear and you’ll have all the support you need.

Don’t use spray tan before you wear your dress as it could rub off onto the fabric and make it look dirty. Spend a few days sun bathing before the big day, and remember to use sun block. It’s better to look pale than sunburned.

Planning a beach wedding?

Beach weddings can create magical, memorable moments for both the happy couple and their guests. It is important to get the little details right, but with careful planning it is possible to achieve a low-cost beach wedding.

Beach weddings which can be as elegant or as simple as you choose them to be.

You can have a quiet, intimate gathering with just a few of your closest friends and family, or you can have a large, spectacular event celebrating with everyone that you know. Whichever way you decide to go, deciding to get married on the beach will prove to be as beautiful a setting as you had hoped for.

When planning beach weddings abroad there are so many great locations to choose from. The Bahamas, Jamaica and Mexico are all very popular, but a little closer to home, Northern Cyprus offers a great location to have a destination beach marriage that doesn't have to break the bank. Like the destinations on the other side of the Atlantic, you can be assured that you'll get almost guaranteed good weather and beautiful sunsets that promises to splash your wedding with reds, oranges and pinks to create a memorable background for your special occasion.

White sands and the blue waters will only add to the setting for your big day, and with a soundtrack of rolling surf and a breeze in your hair, you can meet on the beach in your beautiful dress ready to get married, barefoot.

With a wedding on the beach, you also have the opportunity to create a truly personalised venue with beautiful tropical flowers, music provided by one of the fantastic local bands or you could arrange for a DJ to play all of your favorite tunes. You can also enjoy a long stroll down the sandy beach when it's all over, and take time to soak up all of the wonderful moments that have just taken place.

Beach weddings also give you the opportunity to have your honeymoon in the same location as where you've just had your ceremony, which not only extends the special event but can also save on costs. You can spend a relaxing evening on the sand sipping your favorite wine, and create memories that will last you both for the rest of your lives.

We work with a number of wedding photographers who are experts in beach weddings, capturing the moments as the winds blow through your hair and create a flowing movements in your beautiful wedding gown. You'll have great shots of the two of you at the waters edge playing in the surf, and the sunset can provide you with some great photos full of color and detail.

Top tips for getting married abroad

Getting married abroad can be a great option to create a memorable event, experience something new, and most importantly it will be great fun for you and your guests. However, organising weddings abroad can be tricky, with costs, foreign laws and logistical issues to look out for, so you need to plan well. The following are some of the tips for successful weddings abroad:

Select your destination wisely

You need to ensure that your destination is friendly to all your guests. If possible, find a country that has sufficient sun during the appointed wedding time, but ensure that the climate is favorable to both the young and the elderly people.The weather situation of your preferred destination will also influence you choice of wedding dress, and you'll also need to guide your guests dress appropriately for your marriage and avoid any inconveniences.

The country should also have some wonderful wedding venues, whether at the beach, a famous restaurant, garden or a historic landmark that will make your wedding day truly remarkable.

You also want to make sure everyone is safe and free to enjoy the day, so ensure the destination is safe from any social problems like crime or natural disasters.

Select your guests carefully

Travel for overseas weddings can become costly, so you may need to cut on costs by reducing the number of people in your guest list. You may have to buy air tickets for your family members, and so you may need to reduce any avoidable costs by inviting only a few friends and members of the most immediate family. But remember, people understand how expensive these things can be, and this is YOUR big day so don't worry too much about what neighbours, distant relatives and co-workers might think.

Help your guests plan their journey

Remember that some people find traveling difficult and stressful - they might not be familiar with your wedding destination, or even the flight customs. Help them book their flights and arrange travel documents, and if possible let them fly as a group. Sending someone to receive them at the airport can be extremely welcome, so that they do not feel stranded when they arrive, and organise transfers to and from the wedding reception area.

Budget well

Overseas wedding insurance, photographers, videographer, wedding planners, venue fees, air ticket and airport transfers are just some of the costs involved in overseas weddings. You need to budget well so that you do not run out of cash in a foreign country.

Pull your resources together in advance, and set some money aside for emergencies. Planning, booking in advance and using someone with local knowledge is the key to successful overseas wedding, so seek advice from an experienced overseas wedding planner, who will be able to advise on all the costs involved.

Ensure that you meet all the legal requirements of your host country

Different countries have different marriage laws. Ensure that you meet the minimum age specified in the constitution of your host country, but you also need to meet all the customary requirements and obtain all the necessary licenses required during weddings. Some cultures have strict dressing rules, so make sure you observe these regulations too.
