Dream wedding destinations

19 August 2019

The destination of your wedding is an incredibly important aspect of any wedding, especially when you have to consider your day not being hampered by the ever-reliable Irish weather! If you’re thinking of tying the knot on a sun-drenched beach, with the sound of the waves providing the soundtrack to the happiest day of your life, here’s some inspiration for your dream wedding destination.

Aphrodite Hills Holiday Residences

For a truly magnificent wedding, Aphrodite Hills Holiday Residences is simply second to none. With several beautiful wedding venues including the unique and enchanting St. Catherine's Chapel situated within the Village Square, your wedding is destined to be truly magical. Take advantage of a dedicated Wedding Team allowing you to just sit back, relax and enjoy your wedding.

When it comes to the accommodation, there is an endless collection of upscale self-catering Villas and Apartments which are located throughout the award-winning Aphrodite Hills Resort and are ideal for celebrations, intimate gatherings or grand affairs. Some of the villas offer private heated pools, stunning sea views and lush gardens for those seeking an added touch of luxury.

This is a great place to relax or get active, or to combine the two, visit a fabulous spa, a PGA National Golf Course, a Tennis Academy, a horse-riding club, cycling and nature trails and, of course, many restaurants.

Constantinou Bros Athena Beach Hotel

A beachfront gazebo is among the wedding locations and reception options at this contemporary four-star hotel, which hosts only one wedding per day to ensure you privacy and the best possible service. Another lure is Elixir Spa, which includes spa wedding packages and spa honeymoon packages among its offerings, as well as signature couples’ wellness packages in two couple’s suites.

Of the six restaurants, the most romantic is Adonis, an à la carte lagoon style restaurant, serving local and global dishes on outdoor seating overlooking the gardens and pool, while Helios Beach Bar is a great place to chill out together by the sea.

The Hotel’s Junior Suites come with private infinity pools and veranda, each with uninterrupted views of the Mediterranean Sea. The Junior Suites also come with a living area, extended late breakfast, fruit and wine on arrival and deluxe toiletries.

Olympic Lagoon Resort Paphos

This welcoming hotel offers weddings in its enchanting Olympian Sunset custom-designed gazebo five metres from the sea, with a backdrop of Paphos’ medieval castle. Towering palm trees and masses of colourful blossoming plants line the venue to give the oceanfront setting a tropical feel.

The adult-only wing includes Honeymoon Suites with white four-poster beds, access to the adults-only serenity pool and some with full sea views. All furnishing and amenities create a sense of elegance and romance to ensure your stay is a memorable one.

Of the six restaurants and six bars, the Captain’s Deck is an alfresco tavern serving traditional Cypriot meze accompanied by lovely Mediterranean views, Seven Orchids with its pan-Asian fare has an adult-only dinner serving, and Garibaldi Italian restaurants is reserved for adults.

Coconut Bay Beach Resort and Spa

The range of wedding packages available at this sleek all-inclusive resort with its adults-only section includes brides’ spa treatments, private island tours and luxurious receptions. Named ‘Best destination Wedding Venue’ at the British Wedding Awards 2019, it has a dedicated wedding planning team eager to make sure that every detail of your dream day is in place.

The spa excels for its couples offerings, which include the chance to pick your own stems from the aloe garden, take lessons in massaging each other, open-air oceanfront massages in a private cabana, and a chocolate and champagne package.

Dreams Riviera Cancun Resort and Spa

A selling point of this property is the beach front wedding gazebo, boasting spectacular views of the turquoise Caribbean Sea, and sitting within lush gardens. The resort aims to be as flexible as possible, and their on-site coordinators encourage couples to bring their wedding plans so they can help turn their dream into a reality.
