Las Vegas, USA

The entertainment capital of the world is the place to go if you want a quick Elvis style marriage, or an all glitz and glam affair. With an abundance of the extravagant hotels that can take you from Paris to the Pyramids and Monte Carlo to New York, you really could set your wedding scene anywhere in the world, without stepping foot out of Las Vegas.

The Caribbean

The Caribbean is an extremely popular among wedding locations to whisk your loved one off to become the Mrs to your Mr (or vice versa). With numerous islands to choose from such as Barbados and the Bahamas, the Caribbean is a top choice when it comes to getting married abroad. The islands are stunningly beautiful and offer the perfect backdrop of sun, sea and sand for a picturesque beach wedding.

Florida, USA

The Sunshine State is nicknamed for that very reason; it’s beautiful and sunny most of the time (although they do get their fair share of downpours). Florida is perhaps best known worldwide as the home of Mickey Mouse; so if you’re a Disney fan what better place to create your magical day than at the happiest place on earth?

Switzerland In keeping with the fairytale theme, you could opt for a more traditional castle in


Switzerland offers the perfect romantic setting with unique castles, ice caves and not forgetting the stunning Alps.

New York, USA

Start spreading the news… especially if you’re getting married in ‘The Big Apple’. From big and public, to small and intimate, NYC has something for everyone. A few places that are top of our list are the stunning Conservatory Gardens and the famous Central Park Boathouse (featured in many films). Or for something with more history the spectacular Angel Orensanz Center – one of the oldest synagogues in the United States –could be an ideal location. This is also where the glamorous SJP tied the knot.


Dreaming of a winter wonderland wedding? Then look no further than the snowy, picturesque Finland. With snow through most of the winter months it makes the perfect location for winter weddings. One truly spectacular location is the Lainio Snow Village located in the Western part of Finnish Lapland. The magnificent village, complete with a wedding chapel, is created every November from of snow and ice (furnishings and all). And if you’re lucky enough, you may even be able to see the Northern Lights.


Long for a laid-back wedding? You’ll have sun and smiles all round if you opt for Australia.

For those romantics and foodies among you this could be a match made in heaven.
