One objective before we started the project was to ensure we found and released interesting, informative and inspiring insight to the public. From saying ‘I do’ on a beach in Rio to throwing up a bouquet on the Las Vegas strip, the results reveal a vast and diverse range of destinations across the World where people have chosen to tie the knot.

Harriet, 31, “Simon and I met travelling across Asia four years previous. We always knew that we both wanted to marry in a part of the World that was different to where we both live day-to-day. Choosing to get married abroad does alienate people from the wedding party, especially somewhere as far as Brazil, however, if you plan well in advance and let people know with plenty of time to plan, it is manageable. For our friends that couldn’t attend, we threw a more low-key party on our return. Both celebrations were unforgettable.”
