Travel Advice

Imagine your wedding day. We bet you picture yourselves gliding down the aisle as man and wife, the envy of all your friends in a fabulous dress and seriously sexy suit… not trailing a soggy, wet veil behind you, armed with a brolly and dreading the grey skies in your wedding photos… right?  Problem is, when you live in England, you can’t guarantee the weather and you could get very rich quick by making a bet that it will rain right when you don’t want it to!

The answer? Much as home is where the heart is, why not go abroad and enjoy your wedding day in an exotic location where the weather (and pretty pictures) are much more guaranteed? The tricky bit can be getting everyone there, so here’s a list of helpful articles that will make sure your travel arrangements go smoothly and no aunties are left stranded in Stansted.
