More popular than ever...
Did you know that the average cost of a UK wedding has now topped more than £18,500!! And a rate rise from the Church of England will see 40% added to the cost of church weddings from Janaury next year. Because of this, it seems that more and more couples are opting for destination weddings - in fact according to a recent study more than a third of couples have booked a wedding abroad this year. That means that 80,000 Brits will shun the UK in favour of a foreign wedding. We think we have some amazing UK venues here on the site but if you are tempted to take flight you might like to know that Italy is the most popular destination! We've got two
lovely venues in the Italian Lakes which are worth checking out in our Destination Wedding section - Villa Cernobbio and Villa Varenna which both have stunning views and historic Italian charm. And good weather!! Touche at the moment! Amanda Statham, Travel Editor at You and Your Wedding recently said that she had been inundated woth British couples looking for advice on where to marry abroad, and we'll be posting our best tips on destination weddings next week - so watch this space.
