Destination Weddings: Why You Should Get Married at Columbia!
The island of love has captured your heart, and as fully formed dreams of a destination wedding now swirl enticingly in your mind’s eye, you ponder the next question: which venue could possibly match the magic of the island, giving rise to an unforgettable occasion?
Situated along the 2km-long Blue Flag-honoured Pissouri Bay, Columbia Beach Resort conceals even more treasures than initially meet the eye.
Nestled in the embrace of the Resort’s expansive lush, green lawns, with a view of the brilliant blue sea, is the All Saints Chapel. With stone-embellished arches and terracotta-tiled domes, the quaint All Saints Chapel is outwardly infused with the traditional architectural nuances of Cyprus.
Upon entering the chapel, this conservative traditionalism metamorphoses into an exciting, vibrant, and unique marriage of cultures, as the eyes feast on Byzantine-inspired murals brought brightly to life by celebrated English painter, John Corbidge: a masterpiece of vivid colour and inspiration.
Could you ask for a more unique setting from which to commence the next chapter of your life?
Ceremonies –either religious or civil –can be staged inside or outside of the chapel.
