Getting Married at St
By Margaret Sheard….
North Cyprus is becoming a very popular venue for weddings and with the wonderful backdrop in many places for some beautiful photographs, it is no wonder that people choose to marry here or renew their vows.
This is what can be offered by St Andrew’s Church in Kyrenia for people who choose this magical place for their marriage.
Kyrenia, with its sunny skies, picturesque harbour and beautiful mountain range must be one of the most romantic places to get married. The serenity and beauty of St Andrew’s Church make it perfect for a traditional wedding and Bellapais Abbey is a magical setting for a summer outdoor ceremony.
It is not necessary to have a civil ceremony before an Anglican marriage service, as all of the officiating clergy are Licensed Marriage Celebrants. Marriage blessings (after a civil wedding), renewal of vows and thanksgiving services for marriage can also be arranged at a venue of your choice.
For more information and to find out how we at St Andrew’s can help you arrange your special day, please view our website, the link is http://www.standrewskyrenia.org/weddings/
“Marriage is not to be taken lightly or selfishly, but reverently and soberly before the face of Almighty God”
“Thank you so very much for officiating at the special service at St Andrew’s on September 9th 2014 at which my daughter and son-in-law renewed their vows after 25 years of marriage. The service was extremely moving and Reverend Wendy Hough had obviously put much thought into her chosen words from the scriptures, prayers and vows and made us feel very welcome to be there.
I should like to add that myself and daughter etc. attended Holy Communion the previous Sunday and Reverend Wendy is to be warmly congratulated on her sermon as we all could relate and learn from her most interesting dialogue. Once again many thanks from Cheryl, Paul and myself.”

- Full wedding in Church: UK £400
- Wedding Blessing in Church: UK £350
These fees include the hire of the Church and the Organist and Chaplain’s fees. If our small choir is requested for either of these services we ask for a minimum additional donation of UK £50.
For Wedding Blessing services held elsewhere (e.g. at an hotel, villa or Bellapais Abbey) the fees are UK £175 for a Liturgical Blessing (including service booklet) and UK £125 for a Chaplain’s Blessing, which is a simpler service.
