Marry Abroad reports a 29% growth in visitors in first 2 months of 2009

We are delighted to announce a 29% year-on-year increase in visitors in the first two months of 2009, proving that engaged couples are still continuing to plan their nuptials despite money worries.
The majority of new visitors have, not surprisingly, come from the UK, with a 48% increase on the same time last year. Europe is still the most popular wedding choice, with the top two visited pages being and, however some couples are looking further afield as Canada comes in a close third place. Same sex weddings continue to soar in popularity with the Gay weddings page showing a huge 479% increase in visits versus the same time last year.

Seeing as how the wedding industry in general has not been immune to the credit crunch, with figures from the USA* stating that couples are cutting costs across the board, the relative cost of getting married abroad may be a contributing factor in marry abroad's visitor growth. Pound for pound you get more for your money overseas, especially if you cho…

Ivanka and Roman's Valentine's Day Wedding

What can be more romantic and symbolic than to wed your love on Saint Valentines day, a day that belongs to lovers. Therefore Ivanka & Roman decided to get married on Valentine's day only a few weeks before the wedding day. As they wished to have a small, chamber wedding with just two witnesses, everything was achievable to plan in a short amount of time.

The couple chose the beautiful Chateau Mcely as their wedding venue. Chateau Mcely, located in the very heart of the St. George Forest, offers its guests maximum comfort in romantic neo-classicist style. The chateau is just one hour from Prague, but feels infinitely removed …

How to get married in France

It's a new year and many couples will have become engaged over the Christmas and New Year period and will now be thinking about where to get married.

France is a popular choice for a wedding abroad, so we asked Anne from wedding planning firm Fete in France the best way to have a ceremony in this romantic country.

Anne says "the legal bit can be a stumbling block for some people but it shouldn't discourage couples from getting married in France. The law basically stipulates that you need to civilly wed before you can have a religious ceremony. (Most French couples these days have a civil wedding at their local 'mairie' and then a few weeks or even months later they will have a religious ceremony with a traditional wedding reception.) If you are not a resident of France for at least 40 days prior to the wedding then you cannot have a legal wedding in France. Obviously, most couples coming from the UK fall into this latter category.
