With lush mountains and clear blue waters, Bali is the perfect exotic wedding destination for many couples. Not only does Bali offer beautiful backdrops, however, but it also offers once in a lifetime cultural experiences.
Bali’s appeal stems from the fact that it combines luxury with a chilled out vibe. Whilst the island is full to the brim with five-star resorts and venues, rarely do these impose a stiff and formal atmosphere. This means that Bali is perfect for those couples looking for a truly unique experience.

French Polynesia may be the closest thing on earth to paradise. Surrounded by turquoise waters and white beaches, this collection of islands in the South Pacific has become one of the hottest wedding destinations for many couples-to-be.
French Polynesia not only offers luxury resorts and breath-taking views, but it’s the perfect place to host a truly unforgettable wedding.
Couples and their wedding parties can choose to stay in the floating bungalows which are offered on islands such as Bora Bora and Tahiti, and on the big day itself you can transport your guests to your very own ‘motu’ for the ceremony. It doesn’t get much more exotic than a private island!

Mexico is a very popular wedding destination, yet whilst most couples head to Cancun we urge you to look for something a little different.
Mexico is blessed with over 6,000 miles of beaches and the country is also steeped in culture. From the food to the music, Mexico offers a chance to get outside of your comfort zone and try something new.
With a country as vast as Mexico, you needn’t take a gamble on your wedding venue. It may take some research and effort, but some of the most special ceremonies are due to the fact that the couple have hunted down an ‘off-site’ location. This could be a local chapel, a jungle oasis or even a Mayan cenote.
For many couples, a safari honeymoon may sound appealing. However, have you ever thought of hosting the big day itself from within a nature reserve?
South Africa boasts many different national parks and safari lodges, which means that you have the ability to combine romance, luxury and adventure. The African bush itself will form a spectacular backdrop for your wedding photos, whilst the traditional tented suites will give you and your guests a feeling of exclusivity and intimacy.
Safari weddings are a definite way to make your wedding a once in a lifetime experience – imagine saying your vows next to a waterhole whilst the animals come down to drink.
