Last week I got back from an scorching hot and amazing two weeks in Cyprus. My boyfriend and I went out there for my best friends wedding and what a beautiful day and wedding it was. If anyone is looking at getting married abroad, I’d definitely recommend Cyprus. It’s so popular for weddings and the back drop of all the photo’s are bloody amazing if I do say so myself. There are also quite a few make up artists and hairdressers around so you wouldn’t have to worry about that whilst being there.
We went to (what I can say is) just outside Protaras. It was the closest town to us and took about 40 minutes to walk to which was lovely in the evenings, but was only a short taxi ride away. Protaras is beautiful. Nice long beaches, lots of shops, restaurants and bars and very nice hotels too. If I was to go to Cyprus again, I’d definitely stay in a hotel closer to Protaras so I could explore it a bit more.
We were also a 20 minute taxi ride away from Ayia Napa. If you come to Protaras for a wedding then having a hen party/stag do in Ayia Napa is perfect, can do it all whilst you’re away. They also have a fair in which opens every evening at 6pm which is something fun and different to do and has lots of rides and stalls, its perfect if you have little ones. Again, Ayia Napa is full of bars, restaurants, shops and clubs, it even has a wagamamas!!
My boyfriend and I didn’t do much whilst we were away. We’ve had such a busy few months sorting things out at home that it was so nice to get away and just chill out, lie round the pool all day, drink a few cocktails and have a swim in the pool. The food in the hotel and surrounding restaurants was lovely and very British if you’re into that type of thing, which we are.
Overall we had a brilliant two weeks away and are absolutely gutted to be home. I’m also very happy and pleased for my gorgeous best friend and her new husband, their wedding was perfect.
Is anyone else going to or ever been to Cyprus? What did you think of it? I’m definitely looking forward to going back in the future 🙂 xo.
