Picture saying ‘I do’ with your toes in the sand, the ocean as your soundtrack and friends and family gathered under shady palm trees. Sound like your idea of a wedding? More people than ever are taking their special days overseas, and since we’re the experts at matching people with their paradise, we’d be delighted to help plan the biggest day of your life.
When you book your wedding with us, it includes the holiday (which means a ready-made honeymoon) and the wedding, with our own UK-based wedding team to help you every step of the way. Our package covers most of the essentials, and once we have booked the wedding date for you, we can put you in touch with the resort to discuss special extras and finishing touches to personalise your wedding.
Below, we’ve handpicked the world’s most romantic destinations (think the beaches of Barbados or the great lakes of Italy) as well as the perfect hotels to make you and your guests feel at home. We have special offers for honeymooners, and at certain hotels in the Caribbean and Mexico, we can even offer your wedding package free^ when you book your Sovereign holiday.
If you have any questions or you’d like to talk about our wedding packages, simply give our Travel Experts a call on 01293 762400*.

Sovereign Wedding Destinations
With a beach for every day of the year, you’ll be spoilt for choice saying your vows in Antigua. It’s a better-than-the-postcard setting for wedding photos, too. Take a look at our choice of wedding hotels in Antigua below.
With glorious sunshine nearly every day of the year (340 days of it, we’re told) Barbados’ beach charm and HD colours make it one of the hottest wedding destinations in the Caribbean. Here’s where to say ‘I do’.
It’s not only Columbus who considered the Dominican Republic the fairest land under heaven. We think it’s pretty special, too. Caribbean beauty and a Latin American charm make this a paradise island ready for romance.
Mexico is home to fabulous white-sand coasts and world-class beachfront resorts, not to mention wildly beautiful scenery and ancient archaeological treasures. We think it’s one of the most unique places to get married on earth.
There’s no doubt about it; Mauritius’ unique brand of dreamy beaches, cloudless weather and colonial beauty makes it one of the most romantic destinations on earth, with a fair few fabulous luxury resorts to match.
If you’d prefer a destination a little closer to home, Cyprus has earned its romantic stripes (Anthony gifted the island to Cleopatra as a token of his love) and counts 300 days of sunshine and some of the prettiest scenery in the Med among its triumphs.
Greece’s dramatic coastline, picturesque islands and historic towns provide a tantalising choice of wedding backdrops, from Halkidiki’s olive grove-thick coast to Crete’s lunar-like landscapes and picture-perfect seaside towns.
The land of Eat, Pray, Love, Bali’s exotic wedding credentials come in the form of powder-fine beaches and awe-inspiring volcanic scenery, with hundreds of tiny temples half-hidden in the landscapes.
It’s no secret that Italy loves romance; its breath-stealing destinations and weddings are a match made in heaven. From the quaint coastal charms of Sorrento and Amalfi to Lake Garda’s palatial waterfront retreats, this is a country fit to bursting with wedding backdrops. We can organise weddings in Lake Garda, Amalfi, Ravello, Positano, Sorrento or the island of Capri.

Q. What is included in our wedding?
A. When you book your wedding with us, the price includes the holiday and wedding package, which will be confirmed when you book. The wedding package covers most essentials and inclusions that you would expect for a traditional UK wedding, but you can also arrange personalised extras and finishing touches with your wedding coordinator once you arrive at your destination. A local wedding coordinator will be on hand throughout to ensure everything runs smoothly. Wedding extras and finishing touches will be at an additional charge and are paid for locally. You may also be required to pay legal fees once in resort but this will vary by destination, however your Wedding Pack will state if these are required.
Q. How far in advance do we need to book our wedding?
A. We recommend you book at least 12 weeks before your departure to allow sufficient time for your arrangements. However, there is some flexibility with this and your Travel Expert will be able to advise you. Late processing fees will apply for all wedding bookings made 10 weeks or less to departure.
