Unique Places To Get Married Abroad
Planning a wedding? Looking for an out-of-the-ordinary way to say “I do”? We’ve scoured the globe for unique venues worthy of an unforgettable big day. Here’s 7 of our favourite…
Wat Bang Rieng Pagoda Hill Temple In Thailand
First of all, you don’t need to practise Buddhism to marry here. The faith has an open-minded philosophy, so everyone is welcome. You’ll start off by paying your respects to Buddha, and receive a blessing from robed monks. The temple is beautifully decorated and perched at the top of a forest-coated mountain. So not only is it really peaceful, the backdrop for the photos is one-of-a-kind. The best bit? You can get married here with Thomson.
On A Bamboo Raft In Jamaica
Adventure is on the cards for this one as you’ll be saying your vows as you set sail down the river on a raft. If images of Jack and Rose on a wardrobe door spring to mind, worry not. Made from strong bamboo, the raft measures up at 30-feet, and it’s decorated for the occasion, too. Our sister company, First Choice, hosts weddings here.
In A Medieval Castle In Cyprus
For a setting fit for a princess, this Medieval castle in Cyprus is just the ticket. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is 8,000 years old and features a stone bridge and vaulted doorways. It’s right on Paphos’ harbour, so you’ve got sea views and a gorgeous marina on the doorstep. Like the sound of that? We can arrange a Thomson wedding for you here.
In A Hot Air Balloon In Florida
You’ll be flying high with this wedding as you float through Florida’s skies. Drifting along, you can see for miles over Orlando’s lakes, forests, and, not forgetting, Walt Disney World. When you land, you’ll be greeted with cake and a bottle of champers for your al fresco reception.
On A Rollercoaster In Las Vegas
If you have a need for speed, head to Vegas for your wedding. The land of drive-through ceremonies now offers you the chance to ride a rollercoaster as you get hitched. It’s sure to get your heart racing with speeds of up to 67 miles per hour, loops and twists. Don’t forget to smile for the camera.
Under The Sea In Thailand
Take the plunge by marrying under the sea in Thailand. Trang Underwater Weddings hosts an annual event, welcoming multiple couples to marry during one big ceremony on Valentine’s Day. It’s been going for 19 years now, and has seen 500 couples don wetsuits to join in holy matrimony.
In An Ice Hotel In Lapland
If you’re a hardcore Frozen fan, why not tie the knot in a venue made entirely from ice? That’s right, everything from the altar to the seats is frozen solid. Receptions are held in the ‘world’s coolest restaurant’ next door, also made from ice. That’s one way to throw a white wedding. This super cool venue features on the Thomson Weddings venues list.
