Advice needed regarding small wedding in Protaras.

Hi there, myself and my husband to be, are looking to get married in Protaras, in June 2015. It is small affair as just us and our son so not looking for most of what is included in wedding packages. Has anyone just organised the registry office and town hall visit? Is it complicated to do or would I need an event planner. Any help most grateful received, thankyou.

My husband and i married in 2000 in Paphos town hall as we wanted small.We went to the town hall who sent us to a judge,i think it was to swear an affidavit as i was divorced and he widowed.We had divorce papers and death certificate with us,no problems the special licence issued.Then back to town hall to book the date and time,you do need 2 witnesses.We were witnesses to an American couple who married the week before us as they didn't know they had to have them.We just used 2 of our sons who flew out for the wedding.Service took 5 minutes and certificate issued there and then.Would imagine it would be the same in Protaras/Paralimni area.We found a florist for button holes,corsage and 2 small bouquets.Then a baker who did a lovely sponge cake but beware if you have fresh cream ,ours melted a little as it was in July and had to be kept in fridge.You could always but a M and S fruit one an take with you(they do different sizes).It was all so easy would recommend it to anyone just wanting to have a small and quiet wedding.If you need anymore help i am going to protaras this week and will pick the brains of the owner of where i stay and she is very helpful.If you contact the Cyprus Tourist organistion office in london they will send you info too.

Hi there, thankyou so much for your advice, I really appreciate it. It would be wonderful if you could get information from your trip. Heard back from the registry office today and it looks like we would have to book for 2015 by October this year. So appreciate your help!

No problem but do contact the cyprus tourist office as they were very helpful when we wanted to know what to do.The licence cost approx £200 (we paid in Cypriot Pounds 186) when we booked the day and time.We asked the registrar to speak slowly as when we attended the American couples it seemed to be over in a flash,at least ours took 5 minutes lol.I know there is a town hall in Paralimni but will ask about other venues as there is a lovely church off the main Protaras road which may appeal.
