Testimonials

I found the civil marriage ceremony arrangement to be very quick and efficient, highly responsive and very nice interaction with the office personal. The ceremony was lovely, very warm and from the heart, it was very emotional.. We could easily relate to the vows we took, and thanks to the nice marriage officer, the ceremony was conducted in a very pleasant and friendly way. All in all, we felt very welcomed in Larnaka and the civil marriage experience was very positive, highly recommended.

Right from the outset the service of Larnaka civil marriage was efficient friendly with the focus always on our wedding day experience. The venue was breath taking featuring an ideal historic /beach location. We would have no hesitation to recommend the Larnaka Municipality and the Fort for a Perfect wedding or Renewal of Wedding Vows.
