Whether you want to get hitched in the Big Apple or find the paradise-island ceremony of your dreams, our Weddings team can help make your 2016 or 2017 wedding abroad an unforgettable reality.
We're here to make all the difference to your big day. It’s your special event and you deserve everything to go just the way you want it. Just call 0344 557 1035 or pop into your local Virgin Holidays store, and our team will take care of everything from something borrowed, to something blue.
And it's not just weddings our team can help with. We haven't forgotten about the fabulous honeymoons, same-sex civil partnerships, renewal of vows ceremonies and, of course, anniversaries too. You name it, we'll help you celebrate it abroad.
You'll receive your own personal wedding coordinator from our UK team, who have been helping our customers plan weddings around the world for over 15 years.
We'll introduce you to your local wedding coordinator, who will be only too happy to arrange any optional extras available at your chosen location.
We'll make sure that you've got all the documents needed to meet the legal requirements in your chosen resort.
We want your day to be extra special. Once you’ve chosen your wedding abroad destination, you then have an array of venues and packages to choose from.
We offer a variety of different packages at each resort, so all you have to do is choose one that's right for you, and we’ll take care of the rest.
Check the legal requirements and make sure that you have the documents needed. Remember, travel to some countries requires a visa.
You can often add extras to your wedding package, and your local wedding co-ordinator in resort will be happy to help!
Pack your original wedding documents and wedding attire in your hand luggage and keep this with you for safe keeping.
Overseas wedding ceremonies are by their nature simple and informal, so just relax and enjoy your special day.
Once you’ve booked your dream holiday, let your family and friends contribute to your special occasion via our Virgin Holidays Gift List. Just visit giftlist.virginholidays.co.uk for more information.
Take your wedding certificate with you as proof as this may be required to receive any exclusive offers at the hotel for Virgin Holidays customers.
To enhance your honeymoon with us with a romantic excursion, make sure to speak to our in-resort concierge team. You can contact them as soon as you book, or speak to them when you arrive.
It’s meant to be the best day of your life. But if that sounds more like pressure than pleasure, let us lighten the load. A Wonderlist wedding includes everything short of a poet to write your vows, and lets you tie the knot in some of the most spectacular places on earth.
From the top of the Rock in New York City to a helicopter over the bright lights of Las Vegas, getting married need not be ordinary. Make the best day of your life even more unforgetable with our astounding collection of Unique weddings - then combine with any hotel for the ultimate experience.

Your honeymoon is just as important as your wedding day and it should be the trip of a lifetime. Many of the hotels we feature are eager to share in the joy and many offer special welcoming touches like a bottle of bubbly or a fruit basket. Please take your wedding certificate with you in order to take advantage of any applicable honeymoon benefits.
If you are already married, why not take this opportunity to renew your wedding vows. We offer a wide range of renewal of vow packages – from a quiet gathering of friends on the beach, to a large family get-together in a scenic location.
What better place to celebrate than on holiday overseas? We can make as much or as little fuss as you like, but we guarantee we will make your special day memorable.
Our Gift List is perfect for honeymoons, weddings and special occasions, as it allows your friends and family to contribute to your once-in-a-lifetime holiday.
It’s completely free, very easy to set-up online and customise with your own personal introduction and picture. We can even provide Gift List cards to include with your invites.
We work with the world’s best airlines to ensure you have the flexibility and choice you want. Why not start your holiday in style and upgrade to one of the premium classes available?
If you're flying with our friends at Virgin Atlantic:
Start your journey in style with dedicated check in, priority boarding, and a preflight glass of bubbly. Onboard, there’s space to relax, as your purple leather seat is up to 21in (53cm) wide, with a 38in (95cm) seat pitch, footrest and headrest. For dinner, choose from three delicious meals, all served on china, with stainless steel cutlery and linen. Once you’ve landed, you’re one of the first off the aircraft, and so are your bags.
Prepare to be spoilt rotten. Choose to relax in the luxurious Clubhouse*. Once onboard stretch your legs at the onboard bar. Then, when it’s time to sleep, lie back on one of the longest, most comfortable fully flat beds in business class. Having experienced exceptional comfort and service, you’ll arrive refreshed and ready for whatever the day has in store.
Whether it’s a birthday, a honeymoon or another exciting event, Virgin Atlantic can surprise someone with a personalised gift and message delivered direct to their seat. Just call 0344 579 0055 (at least 96 hours before departure).
We offer room upgrades to suit everyone – upgrade to a room with fabulous views, a beachfront room or perhaps a suite with luxurious surroundings and facilities. Check out the available room upgrades at your chosen hotel and make this a holiday to remember!
As a present from us to you, we would like to offer each bride and groom complimentary access to the v-room, our exclusive departure lounge at Manchester airport. Here you can relax before your flight and indulge in complimentary hot and cold foods. Why not kick-start your holiday and toast the occasion with a glass of Champagne†? Just mention this offer when booking to take advantage of this extra benefit.‡
You are welcome to take your dress on board in addition to your hand luggage. Our Crew will, where space permits, hang your dress for you but on some flights the wardrobe space is very limited and we cannot guarantee this. Please pack your dress in a box or bag so that when the crew can’t find space to hang it, it can be safely stowed. If you prefer not to carry it and would like to check it in, please pack the dress into a separate suitcase and mark the suitcase as ‘fragile wedding garments’. Where possible the dress should be packed into a plastic bag for extra protection. Please note that if the separate suitcase is outside of your baggage allowance you will have to purchase excess baggage.
Wedding Dress Carriage boxes are available to purchase from our Weddings Team for £39 each. The boxes are designed for easy, safe carriage of your wedding dress and thanks to the acid-free tissue insert they can then be used as a storage keepsake and reminder of the wedding in years to come. The box is big enough to store that all important dress, yet small enough to fit into the overhead locker on the aircraft, giving you assurance it remains with you throughout your journey.
To arrive in style, why not treat yourself and upgrade to a private transfer in resort? You’ll be met and whisked directly to your resort in the comfort of your own private vehicle – a great way to start your holiday!
If you want more information about our weddings, or you’ve already decided and are ready to book, get in touch with our weddings team.
*Must have a Virgin Holidays booking. If you are not travelling with Virgin Atlantic please check with your airline to ensure the box will adhere to the overhead locker dimensions. Please note the box will be delivered 2-3 weeks before departure. †Bar drinks at extra cost. ‡Subject to availability at time of booking. Only available when booked with, or added to, a Virgin Holidays' package. Please note the Gatwick v-room will be closed between Feb-Nov '16.
