I’ve been meaning to write a blog post on destination weddings for a while so when I received an email from Sainsbury’s Bank blog, Money Matters asking me if I would feature their new guide to getting married abroad on my website I knew this was the perfect time…
It was announced in yesterday’s Budget that the current laws about how and where couples can marry in England and Wales are seriously outdated and the government have asked the Law Commission to propose a simpler and fairer system, giving couples more choice. This is fantastic news and a step in the right direction which will bring England and Wales into line with Scotland, where couples have enjoyed this freedom for a number of years.
It wasn’t long after I started my business that I soon realised there is little knowledge amongst people about what a wedding planner actually does. You may think the name gives it away, however I found people asking me questions that made me doubt the fact that people realise a wedding planner does plan the whole wedding, every detail, if indeed that’s what you hire them to do.

Below I explore in more detail why you may want to consider South Wales as your wedding location.
