All Churches are available for Catholic and Anglican ceremonies as are Blessings and renewal of vows
(Please note - the bottom two Chapels will also allow civil ceremonies!)
St Pauls Pilar, also known as Ayia Kyriaki (above)
This Church was built around 1500 AD as a Latin Church on the site of a small church which was destroyed in 59 AD by an earthquake. About 100 years after its construction and following the Turkish invasion of 1570, it became the Byzantine Cathedral of Kato (Lower) Paphos.
St. Paul and St. Barnabas visited Cyprus in 45 AD (Acts 13 verses 5-12) and converted the Roman proconsul Sergius Paulus and he became the first Christian ruler and Cyprus the first Christian country. Tradition has it that St. Paul was scourged in Paphos at the pillar near this church. This church is, therefore, often known as “The Church by St. Paul’s Pillar”.
This stunning Church steeped in history and one which will make for stunning photographs encompassing the ancient ruins also featured in the grounds.
This is the larger of the Churches and can accommodate around 100 persons.
St Nicolas Chapel (below)
This is a stunning chapel set in the heart of Paphos just minutes drive away from the popular harbour area - its set on the beach front coastline with stunning views and ground plentiful for lovely backdrops. Wedding ceremonies can be held here any day including weekends. There is an extra hire fee of the Church of 200 Euros which is a Church donation fee to the Greek Orthodox Church here who also help in many charities in aid of the poor.
St George Chapel (below)
This is a more modern chapel and has been built on a small hill half way between main Paphos area and Coral Bay, its set just next to St George hotel, its fine and vibrant colours and flowers add to its charm and is very popular with the smaller wedding parties (no more than 40 to be comfortable)
