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!

Exploring Sheffield Winter Garden

With the kids back to school today, I can get back into the swing of work and a proper routine. We had an amazing summer holidays and I cannot wait to tell you all about what we got up to. Last month, we visited the lovely city of Sheffield. It was our first time visiting the city and we had a blast! We stayed over at Novotel Hotel and we were lucky to find this amazing spot next door. The Kiddies were looking forward to exploring the garden so we went over for a quick look. Sheffield Winter Garden is one of the largest temperate glasshouses in the UK and the largest urban glasshouse in Europe. This lovely winter garden has more than 2,000 plants from all around the world.

We had a lovely time exploring the plants and all the beauty. It was quite warm when we visited some weeks ago. The warmth would be amazing in the winter months. I can imagine it would get even busier then. The structure has a building management system that that controls the temperature. It keeps the plants cool in summer and warm in winter. It is such an amazing place! We were blown away.

The Sheffield Winter Garden was officially opened in May 2003 by Queen Elizabeth and has been a famous spot ever since. I can see why it is so popular. It is definitely a place to relax and take it all in. If you love nature, then you would love to explore this lovely clean indoor garden. There are benches to sit and relax and I made the most of them once I was done looking round.

It is a fun tourist spot in the middle of the buzzing city of Sheffield. We spent about 30 minutes exploring the area so do remember to visit this spot if you are in the area and not visited already.

Our Stay at Novotel Hotel Sheffield

*Gifted.

We got the lovely opportunity to spend some nights at Novotel Hotel in Sheffield last week thanks to Red Letter Days. It was our first time visiting Sheffield and we had a lovely time. The road trip was fun; the kids had been looking forward to it and so have we. It was just under 2 hours, so not too long. We found the hotel quickly thanks to Google Maps.

Checking in and first impressions

Getting to the reception to check in was a bit tricky as the lift was out of service, but thankfully the lovely ladies assisted us in getting our boxes up the stairs. Checking in was quick. We got all the information we needed and the ladies at the reception desk were quite helpful. The reception hall is beautifully decorated and very spacious. The kids enjoyed playing around with the interactive board game table. There is also a section for children with books and toys, which I think is great.

Our Family Room

The room was a decent size. The beds were a nice and very comfy. All the basic amenities were in the room except air conditioning. We had to request a table fan from the reception because it got a bit stuffy. I was also not a huge fan of the interior decor in the room. It looked like it needed an update but I liked the fact that there was a fridge and coffee machine available. Also, the toilet is separate from the bathroom which is so handy when you have kids. The WIFI was also very reliable. We didn’t have any problems using it.

The Staff

The workers were truly amazing. They always had a smile on their faces. Nothing was too much trouble. They were always happy to help and they all made our stay at Novotel Hotel even more memorable.

Breakfast

The breakfast was good. It was a buffet and we all enjoyed it. It was quiet most of the time, just the way I like it. We pretty much had the restaurant to ourselves, I guess because it was the bank holiday weekend.

The Facilities

I didn’t get to use any of the fasciities but M did. He had fun swimming and even used the steam room which he loved. I took a look at the pool and it looked amazing. I didn’t have swimming wears for myself and the kiddies so we couldn’t take a dip, but it looked really inviting. I wish we had our swimwear with us.

Location

The location of the hotel is in the middle of the city centre so we have access to all the tourist spots in the city. We visited a few places and there were many things for the kids to do. I am glad we got to finally explore Sheffield.

Overall we enjoyed our time at Novotel Hotel Sheffield. It was a fun trip with a lot to do in the city. I will be writing up posts on what we got up to, so look out for more travel posts on Fashion and Style Police.
