Why have a destination wedding?

Why should you have a destination wedding?

There are so many reasons to have a beautiful destination wedding. Chances are if you’ve found yourself on this page you’ve probably already decided to get married abroad!

Destination weddings are intimate affairs

The guests you invite, and the ones that want to come, will be your closest loved ones. There’s no pressure to invite people you’ve never met just because they’re family or anything like that. Smaller, more intimate destination weddings turn out to be much more true to what the couple actually wanted for their day. There’s less pressure to keep 100 guests entertained too. The beautiful location will be enough in itself.

You won’t have to worry about the weather

One of the main draws for a destination wedding is the amazing weather. Here in the UK, we can’t guarantee a sunny day even in August!

By choosing to hold your wedding in a warmer country, you’ll have a little more control over the weather on your day.

You get to have a longer celebration

So often, I hear ‘wedding days go so fast!’ so why not turn it into a whole weekend or a week of wedding celebrations abroad.

You can have a party a few nights before, an alfresco dinner the evening before your big day or even an after-party on a boat!

I normally arrive a couple of days before the wedding and would be more than happy to document all your other wedding events too! This way you’ll get to have a full story documented rather than just one day.

I also offer destination engagement shoots and honeymoon shoots which you can have at other locations around your chose country. It’s the perfect way to get incredible epic photos in the space of just a few days!

You can actually save money by having a destination wedding by honeymooning in the same location! You’re already in your dream location so make the most out of it.
