Nov. 9, 2012 - PRLog -- Bastide St Mathieu, a luxury wedding venue in the south of France, offering a chic, exclusive experience for brides and grooms will be pleased to note that the popularity of UK couples taking their nuptials abroad has not waned, with one in five UK couples now choosing to go overseas for their special day. Since 2005 the number of ceremonies conducted abroad has risen by a massive 27%, reaching just over the 57,000 mark in 2010.

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 ( However, this factor has fallen significantly. In 2008 one in five people gave this reason as why they would not marry abroad, but only 15% in 2010. Less than one in ten of those surveyed by Mintel were concerned about upsetting people after taking the decision to marry overseas.

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. Bastide St Mathieu may see more enquiries about their luxury wedding venue in the south of France as the popularity of these unique weddings continues to grow.
