Many brides are choosing to have their weddings abroad these days. As we previously mentioned with our post ‘Why Have Your Wedding Abroad’, more and more British couples are choosing to have their weddings abroad and then enjoy their honeymoon in a similar location. There are many reasons for this; primarily, it’s actually cheaper to get married abroad, usually because guest lists are smaller and the resort takes care of normal high-ticket items like flowers and catering. It can be the perfect opportunity to have a wedding you’ve always dreamed of in paradise with only the people you love around you – effectively cutting the normal paraphernalia around weddings in the UK. Plus, British weddings are limited in that they can only take place in certain locations. A wedding abroad gives you the opportunity to get married anywhere you please, whether that’s in the middle of a forest, on the beach at sunset, or even on safari.
Turquoise weddings abroad take place at a small number of handpicked, exclusive resorts.
If a beach wedding is for you, The Oberoi Mauritius, one of our favourite honeymoon resorts all around, also tailor make weddings for you and your loved ones. The Oberoi is situated on the west coast, which means you’ll get the full effect of the sunset should you choose to get married on the beach. The Oberoi actually has a choice of actual wedding locations, whether you want to have your wedding on the oceanfront, on a luxury catamaran, or even in the privacy of your own villa. The Oberoi’s wedding coordinator will arrange your day for you – a typical wedding costs around £1000.
Those of us who are looking for a laid back but still beautiful day might consider a wedding at Tokoriki Island Resort in Fiji. You can get married on the beach, more traditionally in the chapel, and or underneath the coconut palms. Tokoriki Island offers three different wedding ceremonies starting at just £450. These weddings are designed for two and are perfect for the couple who want to elope in paradise.
For a barefoot beach wedding, try Pacific Resort Aitutaki in the Cook Islands. Weddings are held on tiny ‘One Foot Island’ in the middle of the lagoon – a gorgeous setting – and start at £880 for full legalities, transfers, and the wedding itself.
