Now Boarding – Our Destination Weddings Mini Series

Now we love winter, especially when Christmas is just around the corner and there are so many exciting things to look forward to. That said, there’s also something about this season that makes us look forward to travels in the New Year. We’re so lucky that we do indeed get to back our bags for destination weddings and overseas ‘I dos’ are the inspiration behind a new mini-series we’re launching here on the blog…

Destination weddings are very special indeed and as destination wedding photographers, we’re able to share in the joy with our couples, wherever they choose to wed. It’s true to say that recently, more and more couples seem to be falling in love with the thought of an overseas wedding and with so many gorgeous places just a few hours away, who can blame them?

However, there’s also no doubting the fact that a destination wedding still takes quite a lot of planning and whilst some things might be easier, some are certainly that bit trickier. But, fear not! Our new destination weddings mini-series is going to make everything much easier.

Each month, we’re going to look at one of our favourite destinations and talk you through what you need to know as well as providing plenty of inspiration and advice. We’re kicking off in December with a look at Las Vegas and then, when we hit the 2018, we’ll be focusing on Morocco, Italy and France to name but a few. If there’s anything specific you’d like us to cover or anything you’d really like to know, just get in touch!

So, we really hope you’ll join us on our travels over the coming months here on the blog. If the thought of a destination wedding has made you smile, why not indulge with a couple of features right? Firstly, we’ve got some points to consider when planning a destination wedding and a very practical look at what to pack for your destination wedding.

Lastly, if you’ve already set your heart on a fantastic overseas wedding and you’re looking for equally brilliant photographers, then this is the page for you! Alternatively, we’re always at the end of an email if you’d like any more information – click here to say hello!
