Who would think a few years ago that gay weddings in Cyprus would be a popular trend in our big wedding family. Cyprus as a destination attracts many couples wanting to tie the knot in a beautiful island in the Mediterranean, why not then attract so many gay couples looking to seal their relationship under the Cyprus sun and dance by the mysterious calls from Goddess Aphrodite …
Gay weddings in Cyprus unfortunately are not legally recognized (yet). This means you can not hold your wedding at the town hall and receive an official and recognized wedding certificate . Hopefully in the future we will have an updated law recognizing same sex weddings in Cyprus, this would encourage more gay couples to travel to Cyprus and increase the number of wedding couples so far.
Regardless of the non existing recognizing law, still gay weddings can be celebrated in our beautiful island not necessarily by having to do all legalities. You can sign and seal with your other part back home get the paperwork done and fly to Cyprus with family and friends to celebrate in a holiday mood your special decision. The alternative would be to have a celebration ceremony or a blessing followed by the wedding dinner and party.
