Some 500 civil weddings will have been carried out in Peyia Municipality by the end of the year, while some bookings have been moved to a later date because of uncertainty created by the pandemic, a municipality official said on Thursday.

Maria Yiangou told the Cyprus News Agency that 2021 has been a better year than last year. Indicatively, some 200 civil weddings were carried out in 2020, less than a third the 650 of 2019. For 2021, the municipality is looking at a total of about 500.

Up until July this year, most of the couples tying the knot in Peyia were from Israel and Russia, while August has also seen Britons getting married there, she added.

Yiangou said she expects an increase in the number of civil weddings in September.
