You can pre-book any of the below extras with our UK Wedding Department and if you'd like to add any extra items or upgrade when you get to resort, you can do that directly with your Olympic Wedding Coordinator in resort too.

Extra Touches

Browse the sections below: Wedding Cakes, Entertainment, Wedding Flowers, Wedding Hair & Beauty, Photography and Wedding Transport for some of the many extra touches we can arrange for you, if there's anything you've set your heart on that we've not mentioned, just let us know!

A spectacular wedding cake truly is the cherry on top of your special day. Choose from traditional and classic to contemporary and modern styles. Standard wedding cakes are all finished with white icing, so they look like a traditional wedding cake and you can personalise the cake with a cake topper brought with you from home or a fresh flower arrangement for the top of the cake can be arranged for you in resort. Choose from simple designs, to elaborate multi-tiered masterpieces, from a custom-made cake to a tower of profiteroles. If you have a design in mind please send us a picture and we will be pleased to give you a quote.

Traditionally wedding cakes were made to bring good luck. In modern times however, they’re more of a centrepiece to the wedding and can range from a small cake that feeds ten people, to one that will feed over a hundred. We will arrange for your wedding cake to be delivered to your reception venue on the day of your wedding. Your choice in cake design will be centre stage when you cut into it in front of your wedding guests, as husband and wife. Whatever your preference, wedding cakes can be contemporary and elegant, simple and modern and can complement the colour scheme and theme of your wedding, ensuring you have the perfect cake for your perfect day.

Prices start from £29 for a standard one tier cake.

Entertainment

When you’re planning your wedding, one of the biggest worries is 'will everyone have a good time?' Arranging just the right entertainment for your guests will ensure your wedding is a memorable one for everyone.

If a group of your closest friends and relatives have made the journey to join you on your special day, you’ll want to celebrate with them after your wedding ceremony. The Olympic Weddings Team can help you plan your wedding celebration reception, from a traditional dinner with local musicians to a party with a DJ.  Whether you’re searching for a DJ to play ‘your song' for your first dance or something that little bit different for your evening reception - simply tell us what you’re looking for and we’ll try our very best. If it’s available in the resort you have chosen to marry in, we will arrange it for you.

Flowers

Flowers - no wedding is complete without them. From rose petals scattered by a flower girl to the beautiful bridal bouquet. Flowers are the understated hero of weddings.

Wedding flowers will enhance your wedding photos, as well as giving you the chance to follow tradition and throw your bouquet. If you have a specific flower or idea in mind, it is best to let us know at least two weeks before you travel, as we’ll need to check if the flower you requested is available at that time of year and also give our florists sufficient time to order them for the day. If you have pictures of wedding flowers that you like, it is a great idea to send them to us, so we have an idea of what you have in mind. If you’re not sure what flowers you would like, contact us for ideas or, if you prefer, you can wait until you arrive in resort and discuss with your Olympic Wedding Coordinator, who can advise you which flowers are available.

We can arrange an extensive range of flowers including:

  • Bridal and bridesmaid bouquets
  • Buttonholes for the groom, best man, father of the bride, page boys, male guests
  • Corsages for mothers of the bride and groom and female guests
  • Rose petals can be scattered by a flower girl or thrown instead of confetti
  • Table arrangements for your wedding ceremony and reception
  • Floral arrangement for your wedding cake, a beautiful finishing touch to match your wedding flowers
  • Flowers for your hair, from a single bud to a hair arrangement
  • 'Thank you' bouquets for parents and loved ones

Your wedding flowers will be in most of your wedding photos, so it's very important to have a reliable florist, who will perfectly capture your ideas for your wedding flowers. We’ll help you choose wedding bouquets and arrangements that truly fit your wedding style, budget and colour theme. Even the simplest of flower arrangements can make a dramatic difference to a wedding, so whether you prefer romantic roses, vibrant gerberas, delicate lilies or magnificent orchids, we will ensure that your wedding flowers are all you imagined them to be.

Prices start from £5 for a buttonhole, a round posy of roses from £25 and a long posy of roses from £25.

Hair and Beauty

Experienced make-up artists and hair stylists, with a professional photographer, can produce amazing results for your wedding photographs. Hair can be affected by the high humidity, so a professional hair stylist will ensure your wedding hair will stay in place all day and they’ll advise you of the best styles for your hair type and dress, whilst of course, taking your choices into consideration.

With wedding make-up, you must take into account the high temperatures and the lighting from the bright sun for your wedding photos. Whilst most brides don’t want to look too 'made up', you don’t want to look washed out in your photos either. Make-up artists are aware of which make-up works best e.g. frosted eye shadow does not photograph well as it catches the light from the camera flash. Another point to remember is if you’ve been working on your tan before the wedding, your normal colour of foundation will no longer be the right colour for you, which again, would not photograph well.

Our stylists can meet you for a consultation before your wedding, to discuss all your requirements. You can bring along pictures of your preferred styles, but our stylists will show you photos of their work to help you choose your look for the day. We normally say it’s not necessary to have a trial, as our stylists will not leave until you are 100% happy with the results on the day, but if you’d prefer to have a trial; this can be arranged for you for a small fee.

On your special day - relax, be pampered and trust the experts! 

Photography

Your wedding photography will be one of the most important things you choose for your special day. Flowers will eventually fade and the wedding cake will be eaten, however your photos will last for ever. DVDs are also very popular and are a perfect way to share your photos with loved ones who could not make your wedding, colleagues at work, and are amazing to look back at in years to come.

When it comes to photographs of your big day we know that these will be memories you’ll cherish forever, which is why we have a great team of photographers in both Greece and Cyprus, who we’ve worked with for many years. 

As well as the standard packages that are available for you: 12, 24 or 36 photos in an album, & DVD Coverage, there are extra services available to you. Including the below: (Subject to availability in the different Islands)

Sunset Photography Session

In Limassol and Paphos capture the absolutely breathtaking sunsets, these photos are so beautiful they will be the perfect end to your wedding album. As the sun rises in the East Coast of Cyprus, sunsets are not available, however the photographers in that area offer a Location Photography Session where you are taken to a picturesque and secluded area by the sea for some amazing photos of just the two of you.

Your Wedding Photos on Disc

The chance to own ALL the photos taken during your wedding day is a popular choice among our wedding couples. Perhaps you’ve pre-booked 36 photos in a Wedding album? The photographer will have taken many, many more photos than that though! You then have the impossible task of choosing just 36 photos for your album... However, if you purchase the high-resolution disc of all of your wedding photos you can re-print from this disc at any time. This is perfect for your guests who want some photos for themselves and a wonderful gift idea for your loved ones.

Enlargements & Canvases

You and your family and friends can choose your favourite photos and have them enlarged, ready to put in photo frames back at home. You can also pay extra for some special touches like black and white photos with splashes of colour, or wonderfully romantic sepia photos or even air brushing! Perhaps you would like your favourite photo put onto a canvas, to give the illusion of an oil painting?

Photo Album prices start from: £169 for 12 photos, £229 for 24 photos, £279 for 36 photos. DVD Coverage starts from £299. Please contact us for more information and prices.

Transport

Your wedding transportation is more than just a way of getting from A to B; it's an opportunity to make a statement and enhance the style of your wedding day. How you choose to get to your wedding ceremony and reception helps set the tone of your celebration. We work with experienced, insured and licensed wedding transportation companies, to ensure your special day starts and ends perfectly.

To plan your wedding transportation, you’ll need to think about how many people you need to transport and then consider your alternatives, which we will be happy to help to talk you through. A typical wedding has transport for the bride and bridesmaids, and a second set for the groom and groomsmen.  As well as arriving in style, when you let us arrange your wedding transport you don’t have to give it a second thought. We’ll do all the coordinating to ensure you arrive on time.
