Wedding in the Forest

Wedding in the Forest – from Limassol

Please note:  Although this wedding is featured as an Anglican Church wedding at St George in the Forest, Troodos – we can also arrange a Yermasoyia Cultural Centre Town Hall wedding combined with the Taverna – giving you an alternative option.

Exchange your wedding vows in the coolness of the impressive Troodos Mountains which stretch across most of the western side of Cyprus.  Nearby Mount Olympus is the highest point standing at 1,952 metres (6,404 feet).  St George’s in the Forest provides an extraordinary Anglican ceremony venue away from the heat and humidity of the coastal towns.  An enjoyable drive, and once you start up the mountain you wind your way past picturesque Cypriot villages on the way, the church is nestled among the pine trees in peace.

Your guests will be picked up by a chauffeur driven, air-conditioned, 20-seater minibus, together with the Groom, arranged and co-ordinated to leave before the Bridal car which will depart traditionally later following up to the Church.  Our photographer and videographer will be waiting at the Church to greet everyone and take pre-wedding photos before welcoming the Bride and capturing her entrance into the Church.  Photos and Video will be taken throughout the ceremony and again afterwards outside.  The newly married couple will then take the Bridal Car to the reception venue with guests taking the minibus.  The photographer/videographer will also go with you to take photos of the ‘Toast to the Bride and Groom’ and ‘Cutting of the Cake’.  Couples shots, family shots and any requested photos will also be taken.  The Bride and Groom will also have the opportunity of having more photos done in the traditional cobble-stoned village streets.

The reception venue is a charming, traditional taverna in the heart of the wine making region in the mountains where a chilled champagne toast awaits all guests with the time-honoured cutting of the cake.  An authentic Cypriot meze with ingredients designed to reflect the richness of local produce will be sure to delight your family and friends with many local delicacies that just keep appearing before you!  Unlimited local drinks are also included.

Your minibus will be ready at the venue to take everyone, including the Bride & Groom, home again after a very happy day!

Proofs of your photos will be delivered to your hotel for you and your family and friends to choose your favourites.   Your wedding album with photos tastefully placed inside as well as your DVD and one complimentary copy will be with you before you leave Cyprus.
