Out of control guest list? Check. Spiralling costs? Check. Know-it-all mother-in-law? Check. There’s a reason why destination weddings are becoming more and more popular. They allow you to do the wedding your way, and combine a once-in-a-lifetime travel experience at the same time. Here are four dream destinations to inspire your wedding wanderlust.
Hôtel Sezz Paris, France
Designed with love in mind, Hôtel Sezz Paris boasts a spacious Suite Eiffel with exquisite views over its namesake (above) and a Veuve Clicquot champagne bar. The 26-room hotel designed by Christophe Pillet – a protégé of Philippe Starck – is decorated in a palette of slate, blue-grey and red and oozes elegance.
The Library, Koh Samui, Thailand
Exuding minimalist harmony in the picturesque setting of Thailand’s Koh Samui Island, The Library is the perfect beachside wedding venue. With a team of advisors to assist with all elements of the planning, and a choice of three packages to choose from, weddings at The Library are second to none. The hotel – featuring 26 sleek studio cabins – can handle everything from the ceremony to the reception, ensuring the happy couple have a stress-free stay.
Zash Country Boutique Hotel, Sicily
As a converted 1930’s manor house, Zash Country Boutique Hotel ticks every box when it comes to romance. Not only does the ten room hotel radiate the elegance of the original building, but recent renovations which include an extension of glass-walled bedrooms, add a glamorous twist to the country retreat. The Sicilian ‘home away from home’ will not only help plan the big day, they will also keep guests entertained, activities available include sailing trips, wine tastings and excursions around the island.
The Surin Phuket, Thailand
With unobstructed views of the Andaman Sea The Surin Phuket provides a secluded waterfront setting with a flourish of traditional Thai grace. Sheltered under a canopy of coconut palms and linked by a series of jungle walkways, the hotel’s 103 hillside and beachfront cottages and suites, each with a private veranda sun deck, are luxury defined. Be it a romantic ceremony for two or a friends and family affair, the hotel’s personalized service and hospitality will leave a lasting impression.
