France is proving to be a popular location for brides and grooms – particularly the south of France where the weather is that much more consistent than the onslaught of Mother Nature we often see in the British Isles. The main advantage of choosing a luxury wedding venue in the south of France is that there are frequent and affordable flights from the majority of UK airports to this somewhat exclusive corner of the globe. One of the main reasons in the past that couples have foregone the option of marrying abroad was due to “the cost and time required in attending a wedding abroad puts relatives and friends in an awkward position” according to research from Mintel (http://www.mintel.com/
The other area where wedding venues in France may see a boost is couples renewing their vows. The research from Mintel shows that three in ten people thought that they may marry, remarry or renew their vows at some point in the future and 37% of these would like to conduct their ceremony abroad.
As the world continues to globalise, there is no wonder that more and more couples are taking the option to marry at an overseas wedding venue.
