5 Reasons to Get Married in Cyprus under the Glorious Winter Sun


Serene and sunkissed, it’s no secret that Cyprus is a year-round paradise. And for love birds yearning for a destination wedding, there are few places more idyllic than this Mediterranean haven to say ‘I do’.

Renowned as the mythical birthplace of Aphrodite, Goddess of Love and Beauty, the romance is almost palpable around every turn, no matter what time of year you land down on this gorgeous isle. But if you’re looking for a wedding with a real difference, where you don’t have to worry about extreme heat or securing the exact dates that you’re after, a sunny Cyprus winter celebration may be just the thing to make your heart flutter. Here are some fabulous advantages to tying the knot in wondrous wintry fashion.

1. Sublime sunshine almost every day

We’ve all been through the horrid winter blues when you hardly have the energy to get out of bed because it’s dull and gloomy outside. But you can forget about days spent hiding under the duvet in Cyprus, with average winter temperatures in seaside towns about 20°C.

This means you can still work on that golden glow by the water’s edge before and after your big day, without feeling overwhelmed by the sweltering summer heat. Forget being a hot mess and frizzy hair on your special day either; getting dressed up will be a breeze under the winter sun and your guests will be grateful for the milder less humid weather as they celebrate with you in style!

2. Enjoy a wedding & honeymoon in one

What’s the next best thing after your big day? A spectacular honeymoon of course. And with so much to see and do when you get married in Cyprus, it’s easy to see why so many people stay on at  Kanika Hotels and Resorts after their wedding to enjoy a honeymoon made in heaven. The Olympic Lagoon Resort, Amavi MadeForTwo hotel and Alexander the Great Beach Hotel in Paphos are all open all year round and offer some of the best outdoor and indoor wedding venues in Cyprus, as well as idyllic locations and world-class amenities to help you relax and unwind after you’ve exchanged your vows.

You can also take your pick from a selection of elegantly appointed honeymoon suites or superior rooms with views across glistening cobalt seas as you revel in the romance of our unique settings as our hospitality professionals cater to your every whim with extensive services.

3. Explore & rejuvenate the senses

Avid explorers who enjoy life beyond the sunbed will no doubt be tempted by everything that Cyprus has to offer in the temperate winter months. Discovering ancient sites is easy when the weather is mild and welcoming, walking hand-in-hand in buzzing cities saturated in history is always inspiring, while discovering quaint villages as you navigate winding cobbled lanes can be just as romantic. After some putting green fun? Avid golfers often choose to visit Cyprus in the winter months to perfect their swing, flocking to one of the island’s four stunning golf courses, all within close proximity to Kanika Hotels & Resorts.

4. Brilliant wedding photos in the snow 

What makes winter in Cyprus totally unique is that you can enjoy seaside bliss one moment and mountain magic the next. For a dramatic change of scenery (and temperature) head up to the dazzling peaks of the Troodos mountains, rising almost 2000 metres above sea level and often blanketed in snow between December and March. You can enjoy a steaming cup of hot chocolate as you cuddle up to your loved one in a cosy cafe, or head up to the Troodos Ski Centre for an adventure to remember.

The rugged mountain backdrop is truly picture perfect and ideal for stunning wedding photos the day after your Paphos wedding. Prefer to take dreamy wedding snaps by ancient relics or rocky capes? A winter wedding in Cyprus means you won’t be fighting the crowds or competing with other couples for the perfect spot.

5. Exceptional value for money & cheaper rates

We all want the perfect wedding, but most of us also need to ensure that it’s within our budget. At Kanika Hotels & Resorts, you and your guests can benefit from better winter accommodation rates and a special winter wedding package.
