Planning your big day? We’re excited to announce even more destinations and venues for your dream wedding abroad, plus some exclusive offers. Here’s what’s on offer for next year…
2015 was a great year for Thomson Weddings and we managed to get our hands on 3 key awards which were voted for by you. These included Best Destination Weddings and Best Honeymoon and Weddings Abroad at the British Weddings Awards and Best Provider of Honeymoons and Weddings Abroad by Wedding Ideas. As always, we’re continuing to expand our programme and give you more options for your dream day. Here are the latest additions to our programme for 2016…
From winter 2016, you’ll be able to tie the knot in Indian Ocean paradise Sri Lanka. With beautiful beaches and plenty of culture, this is one tiny island that packs in a lot. You can get hitched on caramel sweeps of sand surrounded by giant palm trees or, if you’re after something a little different, opt for a ceremony in a pretty village temple or right in the middle of a tea plantation. Post-wedding party options include firework displays, wedding breakfasts on the beach and you can even drive off into the sunset in a decorated tuk tuk. Or, if you’re keen for a ceremony closer to home, we’ve also introduced a range of new wedding packages to Portugal and Majorca for 2016.
As well as adding to our portfolio of exotic destinations, we’re also expanding our venue options to give you more choice. In Mauritius, you can now say ‘I do’ at the newly-refurbished Hotel Riu Creole or the Hotel Riu Le Morne, which both feature stunning settings on white-sand beaches backed by dramatic rock mountains. From Summer 2016 you’ll also be able to get hitched at the beachfront Riu Palace Costa Rica which boasts an opulent palatial design and a lush, tropical setting.
If sun-soaked ceremonies just aren’t your thing, a magical winter wedding might be for you. You can swap the beach for spectacular natural scenery in Iceland where steaming lagoons, tumbling waterfalls and even the Northern Lights make up the backdrop for your ceremony. Or, head to Lapland where you can say your vows in an ice chapel or huddled around a crackling log fire in a snow-capped teepee.
If you’ve got your heart set on a ceremony in Italy or Mexico, we’ve got a fantastic offer just for you. Book before the 31st of January 2016 for the ceremony to take place between 1st May 2016 and 30th April 2017 and you’ll receive 10% off your entire wedding package. All you have to do is quote Weddings1617 when booking. Additionally, if you’re thinking of getting hitched in a Royalton hotel, all bookings from Summer 2016 will include complimentary use of the hydrotherapy spa throughout your entire stay.
