Are you thinking about getting married abroad? The very idea is a dream for some couples who are looking to tie the knot in the near future, yet knowing how to plan a wedding in a different country can be difficult. You may not even know where to start. One of the more difficult decisions to make when it comes to getting married abroad is choosing a destination both you and your partner are happy with.

 The Canary Islands

 

The Canary Islands are made up of seven main islands – Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, La Palma, La Gomera, and El Hierro. In recent years, each of these islands has become popular destinations for couples to get married.

The golden shores and dark volcanic sands of each of the islands will make an excellent backdrop for your wedding photos. There’s plenty of family-fun attractions and historical and cultural delights to explore to enjoy either before or after the wedding.

What’s great about visiting the Canary Islands is that it’s ideal for those who aren’t good with heat. So, if you have very young or old guests who may struggle to cope in intense heat, this destination should suit them well. The average daytime temperature is roughly 22 degreesin the region, even in the height of summer. Find out more about Canary Island Holidays and what the local area has to offer before selecting which island to choose as your wedding destination.

 

St Lucia

If you’ve always dreamed of getting married in a tropical paradise, then St Lucia is a destination you should consider. With the striking combination of white sands, crystal seas, and turquoise skies, St Lucia is practically the definition of the ‘picture-perfect’ tropical resort many people dream about. There are many places you may decide to hold your ceremony here; whether it be a rooftop terrace overlooking the beach, or even on the beach itself. You could even book a steel drum band to play during the ceremony or as part of the evening celebrations.

Iceland

 

If the sunnier climates aren’t quite to your taste, then the wintry conditions of Iceland may be more up your street. One of the most popular spots to say ‘I do’ is at one of the island’s famous tourist attractions – the blue lagoon. Here you’ll be surrounded by the toasty 37-degree waters with reflections of the towering dark rocks.

If you’re a little more adventurous, you could decide to tie the knot at the top of 200-foot-high Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, or even near the crater of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano. Do take into consideration that some of your guests may not be the best with heights, so ponder whether you’d be happy to marry with just a few witnesses in attendance, or all of your family and friends.

Las Vegas

What better way to bring the element of fun to your wedding a Las Vegas ceremony? If you’re not too fussed about having all of your family and friends in attendance, then this type of wedding may be ideal for you. Why not get hitched in the classic Graceland Wedding chapel? Simply drive up to the venue and allow Elvis to witness you exchanging your vows. If you prefer to keep your wedding tasteful and refined, you could instead get married in one of the cities many glamorous hotels, such as the world-famous Bellagio. Do be aware that you will need basic documentation for getting married in Las Vegas.

 

Italy

In recent years, the number of couples who choose to marry in Italy has soared, which is most likely due to the fact that some of Hollywood’s rich and famous have already been there and done it. Italy is, of course, the most romantic country in the world, which is a given as to why it’s such a popular resort.

Some of the most popular wedding destinations in Italy include Sorrento, Positano, Capri, and Portofino to name just a few; however, you could also opt for the cities of Rome, Florence, and Venice if you’re keen to be amongst iconic architecture. Give your guests the full Italian experience by serving prosecco after the ceremony or even some pizza or pasta during the meal.

If you’re looking to get married abroad in the very near future, we hope this guide has given you some inspiration on some of the most popular destinations where you could tie the knot!

Travel – Millennium Gallery Sheffield

Whilst exploring the beautiful city of Sheffield in the summer holidays, we stumbled upon The Millennium Gallery. It was a beauty to behold. The Millennium Gallery is an art museum in the city centre of Sheffield. It was opened in April 2001 as part of the big Sheffield’s Heart of the City project, and it is managed by Museum Sheffield. This museum is right next to the Winter Garden in Sheffield and it is free to enter. We spent about 45 minutes going from room to room exploring the history and art. The kids enjoyed exploring the gallery, there was so much to see and photograph. I can see why it was listed as the 15th most-visited free attraction in the country by Visit England.

There are so many things to see in the Millennium Gallery. Ruskin Collection caught my attention the most. It is a collection of watercolours, drawings, prints, plaster casts, minerals, illustrated books, manuscripts and coins. I could look at them all day. The collection is so beautiful. You can also find special exhibitions, craft and design, metalwork   collection. There are also cafes and shops available to grab souvenirs and a hot drink with a snack. It is definitely a great venue to visit if you are in Sheffield city centre and you are into arts and exhibitions.

Photography was no allowed in most of the exhibitions so I didn’t take as many photos as I would have liked. I will definitely be visiting Millennium Gallery again when next I have the opportunity to visit Sheffield. It is a lovely place indeed.

These Top Tips Will Completely Transform Your Dating Life

*Collaborative post.

If you are sick and tired of not finding “the one” or if you feel as though there is something more out there, then these tips should help you to access a whole new world that’s full of dating potential. They will definitely transform your dating life. 

 

Go Beyond the Bar Scene

You never know when you are going to meet the person of your dreams, so don’t limit yourself to bars. You might meet someone at a fun run, or even when going to a museum. Love has a way of cropping up in the most unlikely of places, so get out there and always make sure that you keep your eyes open.

Let your Friends do the Work

Your friends probably know you more than anyone, so let them do the setting up for you. When you do, you will have a higher level of familiarity and comfort, not to mention that there’s a high chance that your date has already been “vetted” to some extent. If your friends are setting you up, then make sure that you don’t put too much pressure on them.  Sometimes there will be chemistry, and other times there won’t and there is nothing wrong with this.

 

Date your Friends and Transform your Dating Life

Someone in your friend’s circle probably already has similar values to you, and they may also know your background too. There’s a chance that you already feel comfortable with them, and as a lot of people say, friendship really is the foundation for a good relationship. For this reason, it can help to look for someone who you already have that connection with.

 

Choose a Good Dating Site

The best thing about dating sites is that it gives you the chance to really get to know someone before you commit.  You can list your preferences, and you can also find someone who is able to match your interests too. This will stop you from wasting your time and it will also put less pressure on the situation in general. If you are concerned about listing your status on a dating site because you are technically married but separated, then look into family solicitors and always be honest with the other person right from the get-go.

 

Focus on First Impressions

First dates can be overwhelming to say the least. For this reason, you need to focus on making a really good impression. Make eye contact, smile and try and pay attention to what the other person is saying. This will help you to know if there is potential for a relationship and it will also help you to know if there is anything that you can do to make that special connection. Sure, nerves can sometimes take over and this is normal, but if you be yourself then this will make the whole process way easier.

 

Don’t Play it Cool

Sure, playing it cool might sound like a good idea but it’s really not. Playing hard to get or just not acting interested in general won’t be doing you any favours and it may even sabotage your date. Try and focus on being open and welcoming as much as possible.
