Exchanging Vows Abroad

Exchanging Vows Abroad

The British weather is renowned for its unpredictable nature; in recent years we have seen snow in March and sunshine in November, it’s almost impossible to forecast a good day. Your wedding day is undoubtedly one of the most important of your life; bad weather could sour the entire occasion, for this reason many Brits are traveling to warmer climates to tie the knot.

Recently British couples have favoured popular wedding locations such as Cyprus, Crete and the Bahamas. Although to some it may seem like an unnecessary expense, in actual fact many couples find themselves saving money without the need to buy cheap bridesmaid dresses. Many couples chose to combine their wedding abroad with their honeymoon; this drastically cuts the cost of the wedding.

Greece is home to some of the most beautiful wedding venues in the world, ancient churches with renaissance style decor reign tall over the streets of traditional villages, or if a church wedding isn’t your preferred choice there are hundreds of other venues available to wedding ceremonies throughout Europe and beyond. Beach weddings have always been popular, romantic scenery combined with the lapping of clear blue waves entices many couples to marry by the shore.  There are many benefits to marrying abroad such as the fine cuisine, a holiday with your family and friends and of course the sunshine, but exchanging vows in a foreign country can be a daunting process, many couples seek the help of a wedding planner to help arrange every aspect, this takes the pressure off you so you can enjoy the day.

Visiting a Cretan Villa

Greece has always been a popular tourist destination amongst Britons, with thousands of us flocking there every year to experience its unique, vibrant culture and revel in its glorious sunshine.

As the largest island in Greece, Crete is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe. With its miles of beautiful sandy beaches surrounded by azure Mediterranean Sea, rustic coves and fascinating history, it’s no wonder that people keep going back again and again.

If you are planning a trip to Crete yourself, what better way to experience this stunning isle than to live it up in your own private villa? When it comes to accommodation you have loads of options in Greece, but if you want something really special then a villa gives you the opportunity to have a luxurious experience without breaking the bank.

The great thing about staying in a villa is that you have complete privacy, as well as all the home comforts you can’t live without included as standard. Most villas in Crete come with air conditioning, washing machines, dishwashers and cooking facilities as well as TVs and DVD players if you ever get bored of the fabulous Cretan nightlife (we doubt this though)

In Crete, you will find loads of different options depending on how many rooms you want, whether you want your own pool or something even more elegant – the choice is yours. The great thing about villas in Crete is that they are pretty cheap compared to the rest of Europe, and you can find a villa that sleeps six people for as little as £390 a week!
