There’s no doubt that the idea of a destination wedding has captured the imagination of the modern bride (and groom). Every year more and more couples decide to ‘get away from it all’ and say their vows in spectacular locations around the globe. In fact, today more than 10 percent of all nuptials are now destination weddings.

It’s not hard to understand why these away-from-home ceremonies are becoming all the rage.
