how to get married abroad

Your step by step guide to getting married abroad.

Get ready for the fun to begin...it's time to get the ball rolling and start planning your wedding abroad!

Married Abroad



Initially the prospect of planning a wedding abroad may appear slightly daunting and there may be times along the way when you wonder what you're getting yourselves into! I can't promise it will all be smooth sailing but I know from personal experience it's not nearly as difficult to get married abroad as you may first believe.

With a little bit of research and careful planning you will be able to create a wedding that is unique, a wedding that is distinctive, a wedding that surpasses all your expectations and is talked about and remembered by your guests for years to come.

When getting married abroad, your wedding often becomes more than just one day. Many couples make the most of having all their guests in the one location and carry their wedding celebrations over a number of days.

As a result extra work is often required to plan these additional celebrations but this does give you the added bonus of your wedding not being over in the blink of an eye. You may also find the additional celebrations are just as memorable as your wedding day itself.

So let's begin....

Hot Tips

Our wedding was amazing and we would do it all again in the morning. All our guests had a ball and still haven't stopped talking about it. Most of our guests said they couldn't imagine going to a wedding back in Ireland again as they would keep comparing it to ours.
