Book a beach or garden civil ceremony in the early evening as the sun goes down over Larnaca – can there be anything more romantic?

It also means the heat of the day is over so guests at the wedding are comfortable on a romantic summer’s evening on the island of love.

OK! Magazine has covered celebrity marriages in Larnaca because it’s such a dreamy wedding destination, so choose from exchanging your vows in a quaint chapel where palm trees sway in exotic gardens to booking cocktail receptions around the pool, sumptuous dinners or intimate family gatherings.

On the south-eastern edge of Cyprus, Larnaca has some of the island’s finest Blue Flag beaches, including Yanathes and Castella, with plenty of opportunities to enjoy a range of watersports. For a quieter setting try McKenzie Beach, just outside the main town. As a honeymoon resort it’s truly cosmopolitan with a choice of restaurants, cafés and bars.

The two-mile long Finikoudes promenade, lined with palm trees, with adjoining traditional narrow streets to explore, is the place to be seen strolling hand-in-hand beside the delightful beach. At one end is the city’s 17th century fort and at the other a picturesque marina which attracts yachts from all over the world.

Diverse in terms of both culture and nature, and only a 10-minute drive from the airport, the resort is a perfect base for exploring the rest of the island by hire car. For instance, you could pack a picnic and visit Salt Lake, overlooked by the beautiful, 19th century mosque of Hala Sultan Tekke.

The Olympic Holidays team loves Larnaca and their expertise in the region means you can talk through all of your wishes so they can advise and get the arrangements under way.
