Ruth’s Blog: Destination weddings

You’ve found each other, the marriage proposal has been accepted and the wedding preparations can begin.

More frequently, getting married overseas is a great option.

The cost comparison for a destination wedding means it can often make sense to combine the wedding and honeymoon involving those closest to help create magical memories.

Some clients opt for a few days away with their closest family and then jet away for a later more expansive honeymoon.

Having organised weddings in the Caribbean, Mauritius, the Middle East and Europe, I am able to provide a one-stop service for your destination wedding.

Together, we will liaise with a wedding coordinator who will work seamlessly to put together everything from the legalities, ceremony location, colour scheme, flowers and menus.

If you decide to have guests attend, I will deal with everything, taking away any pressures, allowing you to focus on the event itself.

Your guests can also contribute via my Gift List Service with things such as a special experience, a romantic meal on the beach, a couples spa treatment, or an upgrade to your flight or hotel room. We don’t charge a fee for this service and all gifted monies are yours.

Following a romantic proposal in Mauritius in 2019, my lovely client Matt and his fiancée Sarah had to push their wedding back to spring 2022, and I was delighted to be tasked with sourcing suitable destinations and venues.

Ibiza was our first choice but with the flights not working out, we moved to the beautiful island of Malta, steeped in history but with a trendy, cosmopolitan vibe, gastronomic delights and a perfect climate. Being just a two-hour flight from various UK airports, it was perfect.

Matt and Sarah decided on the Corinthia St George, with its sweeping sea views and central location. They were able to get married exactly as they wanted - outdoors with a reception at the Piazza overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.

For me, it’s about delivering clients’ experiences and memories that stay with them for life. Planning a wedding abroad can have many pitfalls and my job is to work directly with all concerned to ensure the day is flawless.
