So, you’re getting hitched? Exciting! Let’s get planning the big day, shall we?
If there’s one thing we all know, it’s that your wedding should be one of the most special, most memorable days of your life. What is more special and more memorable than tying the knot somewhere far, far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life?
Picture this: The sun is shining, the ocean breeze is in your hair, you’re barefooted on a secluded sandy beach. And you’re saying your vows in front of your very favourite people. We’ve all had that daydream, right? Well, now’s the time to make that dream into your reality with a wedding abroad. It’s not as daunting as it sounds, we promise.
If organising all this sounds more like a whole lot of planning and a whole lot of pressure, don’t panic. Weddings don’t have to be an organisational nightmare. Rather than unleashing your Bridezilla potential, wouldn’t it be much simpler to pick a venue from one of our sensational all-inclusive wedding packages abroad?
If you’ve always dreamed of getting married by lake, surrounded by snow-tipped mountains in Canada, or if it’s Caribbean weddings you’ve been drooling over on Pinterest, we can make it happen. Or, what about saying “I do” in the Big Apple, or at the world-famous Drive-thru Chapel in Las Vegas before taking a helicopter trip to the Grand Canyon?
The beauty of weddings abroad? They can be whatever you want them to be. Our Weddings team are on hand to make sure your marriage fantasy becomes a reality, and an unforgettable one at that.
It goes without saying, too, that we believe love is love; we want to ensure the most magical day for all couples. Not only are all of our resorts absolutely perfect wedding venues, our all-inclusive weddings abroad packages really are inclusive. See what we did there?
Want to go the extra mile for your special day? Our hand-selected collection of luxury wedding venues abroad, Wonderlist, includes some of the most jaw-dropping destinations on the planet, from Richard Branson’s private island in South Africa to the soft sands and tropical rainforest of Sugar Beach, St. Lucia. If indulgence and luxury are your priority, it’s a match made in heaven. Peruse the collection at your leisure and then get in touch. You’ll meet your very own Wonderlister who’ll be there for your every need. After all, your wedding day is all about you.
Whoever you are and whatever you envisage for your big day, we’re here to make sure everything goes exactly the way you want it, because you deserve it. Just give us a call or pop into your local Virgin Holidays store, and our team will take care of everything from something borrowed, to something blue. How simple does that sound?
Of course, Weddings abroad are all well and good (and they are really, really good), but that doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten other marriage-related occasions: we can make special arrangements for vow renewal ceremonies, anniversaries and, of course, honeymoons. You name the occasion, 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.

Your honeymoon is just as important as your wedding day and it should be the trip of a lifetime.

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.
