World's top wedding venues explored

28th March 2013 Print

Where-oh-where in the world should you marry? It’s time to get your wedding planner hat on and think very hard. If you’re completely stuck for ideas, here are some of our top rated w-day destinations, so you can celebrate your new life together in style:

Jimbaran Bay, Bali, Indonesia

The Ayana Resort has everything you’d want from a breathtaking ceremony. A gorgeous, traditional Indonesian gazebo can be dressed up in Balinese wedding décor – or if you’re looking for a style that’s more modern, there’s a contemporary option too. As part of the package deal, you’ll also receive tropical flowers, a rose petal cascade, sixty canapés, fifty tropical drinks, and a capella music.

Pamper yourself before and after the wedding ceremony, to ensure that you go from Miss to Mrs looking your best.

Tanjung Rhu, Malaysia

With the choice between a two kilometre white, golden beach to the gardens looking over the sea, you’re spoilt for choice at Tanjung Rhu. From this luxury resort, you can have everything organised for you, including a lusciously verdant wedding arch, music, romantic meals, and Malay massage. What better way to start your life together?

Half Moon, Jamaica

Half Moon really ups the ante when it comes to glorious luxury. If you’re looking to knock out your guests with a visually stunning ceremony and wedding breakfast, head to Jamaica. The Sugar Mill comes highly recommended for a fairytale evening meal, but there are plenty of options available, if you’re looking to mix-up the scenery.

Rocky Resort, Koh Samui, Thailand

If you’re hoping to duck a traditional Christian ceremony, Rocky Resort offers Buddhist monks to join you and your partner in marriage. On a beautiful, private beach, Thai musicians will serenade you all night. There’s a traditional water blessing, followed by a Thai dance celebration, fire-jugglers, fireworks, cake, and a buffet that can cater for 30 people.

After an exciting party, flowers and champers will be waiting for you in your bridal suite. And of course, you’ll be treated to a session of pampering before the ceremony.

Wilson Island, Australia

Shipwrecked with your fiancé on a luxury resort – what’s more romantic than that? Get in touch with tropical nature at its best, away from the hustle and bustle of ordinary life. Relax in designer tents, admire the ocean view, and lounge in exotic hammocks.

Treated as “barefoot royalty” by the island attendants, enjoy a budget wedding package, including minister’s fee, bouquet and buttonhole, wine, wedding cake, accommodation, and transfers. For just $3,350, it’s an absolute steal.

La Maltese, Santorini, Greece

Okay, so this option is a little pricy, but you get your money’s worth - $22,220, including accommodation for 24…for three nights! This five-star hotel will exclusively lend itself to you with free use of the spa. After the ceremony, you can expect a delicious buffet and plenty of wine (this is Greece, after all!).

And that’s not all either. You get your own wedding cake, photographer, flowers, marital documentation, champagne, and DJ all included in the price! Now it’s starting to look more like a bargain…
