  • We are flying out on 7 may for 2 weeks. We are stayingin the St George Gardens. We are getting married at 2.30, which may have been a bad idea as it will be a bit warm at that time!! do you know what time you are getting married? we are taking about 20people with us. How many you takin? We are hopin to have a meal out on the terrace at the hotel after the wedding but I can't arrange anything until I get there which is a bit nerve racking!!! i'm so excited time just seems to be fying by. are Thomsons arranging all your hair and make up and stuff or are you doing it yourself? We are doing everything ourselves so i'm going to use the hairdressers at the hotel. Have you benn to the St George before?
  • hi emma

    not been the st george before but so meny good things been said about it and plus they haveing a major refub that starts dec and finich march so hopefully going to be even better.



    not sure wot time we getting married have asked and just said afternoon how did you find out ?

    we taking 30 people with us mostly family my best friend whos coming is my wounderfull hairdresser so got no woorys about me hair not to sure about make up yet may do it meself or my cousin good at all that .

    your going to be next door then on your hoonymoon when we arrive .

    its defo going to be warm when we get wed have you got a car to take you the chapel or you walking , the chapel got aircon which can only be good for cooling us off !!

    we can book our buffet meal on line i have emailed the hotel that meny times asking things thay most think im MAD !!

  • Hi Girls,



    My cousin got married at st Georges a few years ago, she now lives in Paphos and runs a bridal beauty/make up/hair service. I'm going to get married at St.Georges myself - as soon as we can start saving again after buying a house!



    Its really lovely - you can take your own music and if you are having an Anglican service its all done and arranged by the Anglican Church of paphos who are all british. My cousin has pictures of St Georges on her website - if you would like the details email me - I wish I was getting married next year but maybe 2009 or 2010!



    My cousin has lots of contacts - florists, transport, cakes etc. as its cheaper to book things yourselves a lot of the time than go through the tour operators so if you want any info let me know.

    Hi Jo



    I was led to believe that it only held about 24, but was informed early this year that it can accommodate a lot more, again as Glyn as said it is run by the Anglican church but they share the 2 chapels ( Ayia Kyriaki & St George's ) with the Catholic Church,

    contact Helen Smith Parish Admin / Co-coordinator Mobile 99212627

    E-mail [email protected]

    Website : http://www.paphosanglicianchurch.org.cy

    or SUZIE 00357 99613715



    Services usually last 30 mins for Anglician & about 40 mins + for Catholic Service, Yes it is easy to understand as it is in English lol.



    You can take your own music to be played while you walk down the Aisle or just have the music supplied by the Organist.



    No I have not wed there, but if your still confused drop me an e-mail & I'll tell you what I do.

  • hi jo

    I booked the church direct with Helen Smith and she booked us in for a time straight away. We are staying in the St george gardens as we have family staying in the hotel so that way we might get a bit of time to ourselves after the wedding!!

    i just hope everthing is going to run smoothly when we get there as we can't do anything until then. WOW the nerves are setting in already, what am I going to be like on the day!!!!!!!lol

  • hi kev thanks for that im not to confussed i defo want to marry in the st george chapel tho do you no if i can get hold of a sitting plan of the chapel anywhere ?

    jofor
  • Hi Jofor



    There are about half a dozen small pews on each side and you and hubby sit on large chairs at the front when you are not standing in front of the minister.



    It will take about 50 people but some of those will be standing at the back.



    It is a beautiful, small and intimate chapel, everyone who has been married there (especially me) loves it.



    If you send me your email I have one or two pictures facing the pews of my wedding - [email protected]

    hey ladies, I'm getting married at the other church, Ayia Kyriaki and I have some information Helen (parish administrator) has sent me. It basically details what the Rev. will be saying throughout the whole ceremony and I also have the music choices on offer at both AK and St Georges. email me of you want to take a peek!

    cant belive we getting wed on the same day i kept saying to h2b cant find anyone on this chat room that getting wed on the 22nd.

    plans are going well. well i think they are anyway lol

    you haveing your reception at athena beach ?

    when do you fly out to cyprus we go the 17th from east mids it was 6 months on thursday till we will be married how scary !!

  • I can't believe we are getting married on the same day too. Who have you booked through? We initially booked our wedding back in January with first choice and they couldn't confirm the date and time straight off because the new summer season hadn't started then. First choice were really good however and said that the date we wanted was confirmed but we were given a time of 5pm. I have to say we weren't overly happy with this at first but now its perfect. They did say again that this time would not be 100% until we arrive on 18th May when met by our wedding co-ordinator.



    I'm surprised that they haven't at least given you a provisional time what are you supposed to tell people? the Chapel is beautiful your day can't go wrong.



    We are staying in the Athena beach and having our reception there. the Hotel has its own private beach which we are using for our reception.



    Are you having a wedding co-ordinator? are you finding it a little hard to be organised with everything? the whole idea of arriving and planning like mental for the 3 days is making me a little nervous now especially as you say we have only 6 months!



    were flying out from Gatwick on 18th and return on 28th



    have you got your dress sorted?



    Keep in touch
