If you have been looking at getting married abroad you may have realised that it can be difficult or time-consuming due to the different legalities in each country. The answer to your problems is a multicentre wedding and honeymoon!
A multicentre wedding and honeymoon allows you to hold your wedding ceremony somewhere where the legalities are straightforward, before travelling to a nearby country to experience the honeymoon of a lifetime. In essence, you get to experience more than one place and travel as newlyweds, making the most of your time off around the wedding and having a stress-free experience.
Sri Lanka and the Maldives
The Maldives is one of the most popular honeymoon destinations in the world. However, it is not possible to marry in the Maldives unless you are a resident. As a result, we propose formally tying the knot in Sri Lanka and exploring there before flying to the Maldives.
Sri Lanka offers an incredible selection of luxurious venues for your ceremony. Take a look at AMANGALLA, a converted 17th-century fort that makes for an enchanting destination for your celebration. Sri Lanka offers diverse scenery, culture and food, and allows you to experience mountains, beaches and jungle safaris.
Following your Sri Lankan ceremony, take a short hour and a half flight to the Maldives. The Maldives offers over 1,000 coral islands, offering the most incredible beaches, snorkelling and diving for the perfect blend of relaxation and activity for your honeymoon.
Australia and Indonesia
Indonesia is home to some of the most visited destinations for romantic getaways, for example Bali. Bali is also a popular destination for Australians, as it provides an opportunity to get some winter sun just a 3-6 hour flight away depending on where you are in Australia. Getting married in Australia is relatively straightforward. As a result, we propose saying “I do” down under, before flying to Bali for an enchanting honeymoon.
Australia is home to some stunning wedding venues, many of which are private islands, for example the secluded Lizard Island Resort. Following your ceremony, explore the East Coast of Australia before hopping on a flight to Bali.
Bali is diverse in its fusion of cultures as well as the scenery on offer. Stunning white beaches offer ultimate relaxation, as well as jungle views whilst staying in a treehouse.
The United States and The Caribbean
Honeymoons in the Caribbean are the epitome of romance, beaches and luxury. However, getting married there is not as easy as its nearby neighbour, the United States. This option gives you the opportunity to marry in New York or Florida, before flying to the nearby Caribbean Islands.
Experience city life and see the sights of New York, before taking a 3-4 hour flight to the Caribbean Islands. Alternatively, tie the knot in sunny Florida and take an hour and a half flight to the Bahamian capital, Nassau. Why not stay in the Rosewood within the Baha Mar resort? This hotel embodies romance and luxury, and is perfect for your dream honeymoon.
The United Kingdom and Europe
Finally, the obvious choice when visiting Europe for your honeymoon is to marry in the UK. Getting married in the UK as a foreign national is surprisingly easy, compared to other destinations like France and Spain.
The United Kingdom is home to some incredible wedding venues. London offers grand and quintessentially British venues like The Dorchester and The Langham. Alternatively, plan a magical castle wedding in Scotland before taking a flight to any romantic European destination.
