With just a few days to go until Euro 2012, leading destination wedding site MarryAbroad.co.uk is so excited about the impending championship, that it has pulled together its own Top 5 EURO wedding offers, from its associated wedding planners. All packages are available exclusively to members, through the site’s Marry Abroad Exclusive section:
As stated by Germany coach Joachim Low as favourites to win, Spain will surely be a nation to watch in the competition. Couples looking for a striking Spanish wedding offer this year should look no further than planners Marbella Wedding Angels, who are offering a 10% discount on Marry Abroad Exclusive, on a full wedding planning service. This includes sourcing a venue for the blessing and reception, sourcing a celebrant, photographer, florist, caterer, transport, decorator, entertainment, cake, hair & make-up artist, plus attendance on the day. Weddings can be organised on the beach, in the countryside, in private villas, hotels or castles. Wedding planning costs just €900 with the 10% discount.
Opening the tournament against Poland, Greece will inevitably be hoping to repeat their shock triumph of 2004, to boost their nation. Perhaps a little overlooked, the Greek islands offer fantastic value and memorable service for those marrying abroad. Couples wanting a grand wedding for no more than a grand, should book with Tsimaras Hotels in either Kefalonia or Ithaca in Greece. For just €1,000, the offer includes local registration and documentation fees, venue decorations, bride’s bouquet and groom’s buttonhole, exclusive use of a romantic cocktail reception area and wedding reception area, a bottle of champagne for the couple on the day, a handcrafted single tier wedding cake, breakfast in bed after the wedding with a bottle of fizz, a private, candlelit three-course dinner and a wedding gift, courtesy of Tsimaras hotels. Also, all couples booking a seven-night stay will receive a free room upgrade.
With heartthrob Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli in their squad, Italy are also favourites in the competition. Couples wishing to experience some Italian amore of their own, can book a fairy tale wedding planner in romantic Venice with Marry Abroad Exclusive. Company Your Wedding Planner will organise a civil ceremony for just €500. This includes co-ordination and consultation of a wedding in Venice.
With Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech and Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky in their provisional squad for Euro 2012, the Czech Republic team will no doubt have some familiar faces for a UK audience. Prague is another favourite for Brits, with its current popularity amongst stag parties – however, the city is frequently overlooked for weddings. The Vrtbovsky Garden in Prague, a picturesque Baroque garden, and Class 1 cultural monument registered in the UNESCO World Heritage List, is offering a full wedding package for just £2,850. The Italian-style Baroque terrace-garden was built for Jan Josef, Count of Vrtba, the Highest Burgrave of Prague Castle, near Vrtba Palace in 1715 - 1720.
The package includes wedding date and venue booking, document preparation and processing, document translation into Czech, bride & groom hotel transfers from Prague airport, state taxes and fees, organisation of marriage ceremony, sworn interpreter and witnesses (if required) at the marriage ceremony, legal support of the wedding procedure, marriage certificate, wedding car for the ceremony and a wedding reception for 10-15 guests. This package also includes a live classical music quartet during the reception.
Lastly, although Real Madrid winger Cristiano Ronaldo has admitted that Portugal are not favourites to win the upcoming European Championships, the country should not be overlooked for weddings. Couples booking a wedding in Martinhal Beach Resort & Hotel in the Algarve through Marry Abroad Exclusive, will get a complimentary three-night stay at the Liss Ard Resort in Cork, Ireland on a B&B basis, with a free bottle of fizz on arrival. Terms and conditions apply.
