Imagine exchanging your vows overlooking the clear, blue waters of the Mediterranean sea or the volcanic, magical landscape of Iceland. This is just the tip of the iceberg of the different options on offer if you want to get married abroad. As much as we love planning weddings in the beautiful West Country, destination weddings have a unique charm to them, which is why we’re always happy to hear from couples wanting to host their nuptials abroad.
Getting married abroad can be an attractive choice for couples who are after a smaller wedding, who want their budget to stretch further or who want to combine their wedding celebrations with their honeymoon. Destination weddings offer a chance to make your wedding truly memorable and special for both you and your guests.
That being said, they also come with their own, unique set of stressors, as you have to keep on top of the required legal paperwork and exchange rates as well as the physical distance between you and your wedding venue and suppliers. This is where a wedding planner with destination wedding planning experience can be a lifesaver.
