Some Important Information
In Cyprus, the calling of banns does not apply and you do not need to have them called in the UK before coming to Cyprus. The Form B substitutes for the calling of banns and grants you eligibility to be married here. Anglican clergy are Licensed Marriage Celebrants of the Republic of Cyprus. You do not need an additional civil ceremony prior to a wedding by the Anglican Church of Paphos. The marriage service is similar to that of the Church of England and is recognized in British law as a valid marriage.
It is required by Cypriot law that you arrive in Cyprus at least 3 or 4 days before your wedding. To ensure a relaxed build-up to their special day most couples allow a week. During this time a meeting is arranged so the officiating Priest (wedding chaplain), the organist (if required), and our vergers can discuss the details of your day with you to ensure they know all your requirements and to check your legal documentation is complete. Everyone is happy to provide advice about the nature and content of your wedding service if you still have questions.
