Ninety per cent of weddings in Paphos have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and the next three years because of the coronavirus pandemic, a tourism official said on Friday.
Last year, over 3,000 wedding ceremonies were held in Paphos, according to the head of the district’s tourism development company, Nasos Hadjigeorgiou, without about the same number scheduled for 2020.
Because of the pandemic, about 90 per cent of the ceremonies scheduled between March and August, have already been transferred to later dates in 2020 and 2021. The rest have been cancelled without setting new dates.
Hadjigeorgiou said efforts in the last years succeeded in developing this form of tourism, setting Paphos high as a wedding destination.
