Your perfect wedding abroad
Do you imagine sunset on your own private beach, a lush tropical garden with sea views, a private terrace with incredible views dripping with sweet scented flowers and ambient candle light?
Have we just described your dream wedding abroad?
With over 14 years of planning weddings abroad we offer a wealth of experience and are one of the original planners of weddings abroad. We can offer you a beach wedding in Zakynthos or Crete, a terrace wedding in Santorini, one of many beautiful villas if you desire a luxury wedding in Italy.
Rhodes has some of the prettiest beaches for your dream wedding abroad with pretty roof terraces or waterside tavernas to celebrate in.
Since 2004 we have over 1600 couples get married abroad and we give our utmost attention and passion to every wedding we plan.
We met Sasha 19 months before the wedding and she was outstanding taking us through the process and offering us advice as we really had no idea. As we got nearer to the wedding Lisa and Matt both worked with us to arrange all of the necessary paperwork that we hadn’t even thought about and they continued to support us after the wedding with having our documents translated. Email communication was outstanding and every question was answered instantly no matter how silly and insignificant our questions were. While in Santorini we met with the on the day team who drove us around and stayed with us on the wedding day to check everything ran smoothly. Everything was so well planned and timed, I was so relaxed and almost forgot I was actually getting married.
There’s never been a more important time to trust your partners and choose your suppliers carefully, our couples become our friends and have fun planning their weddings and isn’t this how it should be?
Let us help you plan your affordable and memorable dream wedding abroad.

Creating Dream Weddings Abroad
We currently plan weddings in Greece and Italy, however we’re always on the lookout for new destinations!
In Greece we work in Zakynthos – Zante, Santorini, Crete, Rhodes and our most recent addition Kos. In Italy our services are concentrated on the Amalfi Coast, in Sorrento and Ravello.
As your overseas wedding planner you can be assured that we’ll be with you every step of the way, prompt and clear honest communication is very important to us and we’re delighted our clients agree too.
I know planning your wedding is meant to be a very stressful time, however I don’t think we felt stressed once! From first being in contact with Lisa to the actual day everything was so smooth and explained to us so we didn’t have to worry. Lisa was fabulous in the logistics of the day and organising everything, and Matt was fantastic explaining all of the legal aspects that we would need to do to make it the wedding legal back in the UK. The team in Santorini were faultless, we met them once we arrived to see the venue and give them our decorations and explain the order of the day.
Our couples get involved as much or as little as they like in the planning, some leave the decisions to us and others make every single decision, we’ve even worked with a few grooms over the years, and with great success, I must add.
Our weddings range from an intimate wedding with just 10 guests to large extravagant affairs with 100 guests plus. Each wedding is unique and special in its own way. Although we do work with a basic package, this is really to provide guidance for budgeting and from this we work with you to create your own unique wedding day, filled with memories you and your family can treasure for evermore.
Some couples contact us knowing what they want and even have a specific venue in mind, others are at the very start of their journey only with a desire to marry abroad. Wherever you are in your journey we’ll work closely with you to ensure you have the perfect journey from getting engaged to tying the knot and as most of our clients remain in contact with us after the wedding we’re always here if you have any post wedding questions, or maybe just want to relive the day!
A wedding abroad is just as special, or I personally think EVEN more special as a stay at home wedding as it’s so unique! Most of your guests will never have previously attended a wedding abroad and even if they have, it’s unlikely to be at the same venue, so you’ve got the WOW factor before you even start planning.
With a wedding abroad you’re on holiday, so you and your guests are in a wonderful relaxed frame of mind. No one’s worrying about getting up for work the next day, or getting home to pay the babysitter, weddings abroad usually involve the whole family and as there’s no early start the next day who cares if the kids stay up late, you might even get a lay in. However if you want a Nanny to look after the kids, we can point you in the right direction for that too!
Anything goes with a wedding abroad!
But what you can be sure of is that everyone who attends will have a brand new, unique once in a lifetime experience. Weddings are already emotional events, but when abroad, it’s a magical experience like no other.
One of the considerations about having a wedding abroad is the distance, how do you meet suppliers, how do you know if they’re the right fit for your wedding?
How do you choose flowers and decor when you’ve never seen the venue?
Well, here’s where we come in, we’re your eyes and ears. We’ll use our many years of experience, our local contacts, our developed negotiation skills and instinct to provide you with the best experience possible.
We know what works and doesn’t, we know which suppliers work seamlessly and those that don’t. We’ll make sure there are no underlying negative tones at your wedding because when you work with us we’ll only book suppliers we know can confidently work to our standard and that can work as part of a team.
From the moment everyone arrived in Santorini they were instantly more relaxed – most of our guests took the opportunity to make our wedding their annual holiday or a long couples weekend away (kiddie free). We had a pre-party two days before our wedding and it was the first time all of our guests had seen the Caldera view, they were all blown away and said they’d never been to somewhere so beautiful. Getting married abroad makes the whole experience extra special, we not only have the most amazing memories from our special day but we also have the memories of spending the week with our closest friends and family.
