Pixsmiths Destination Weddings – Top Ten Tips

Pixsmiths Destination Weddings – Top Ten Tips

Did you know  that approx 18% of ceremonies are taken abroad? Did you know that Pixsmiths often travel and are available for destination weddings?

It can work out a lot less than a UK wedding and less stressful! Plus you can combine with a honeymoon. Obviously beach destinations are popular but there are many other choices – European – Austrian Alps, beautiful Italian churches, the incredible landscapes of Tuscany,  Ice Palaces, on cruises, castles and beer caves in Germany! Inspiration can be found here perfectweddingsabroad.co.uk

Give consideration to weather at your location/time of year – hurricane seasons  and meltemi winds to avoid being wind blown on the beach! Also check out any documentation and residency requirements for getting married abroad.  Dreaming of a French chateaux wedding then you must be resident for 40 days

Many weddings can be booked and co-ordinated with a tour company and/or aid of a wedding planner in your chosen country and associated wedding services can be sourced out there.  Some resorts may have in-house suppliers they prefer you to use  – such as the Blue Lagoon resorts in Kos, Greece – so please always check to avoid disappointment. If you can  there can be many advantages to taking your photographer abroad with you.  Carry on reading below for some top reasons why:-
