Say ‘I do’ to a Thomson wedding

Travel operator, Thomson, have a range of wedding packages and perfect honeymoons for the most discerning bride and grooms.

You can spend your special day in a far-flung paradise such as a white-sand Caribbean beach, a safari lodge in Kenya or a romantic Tuscan village to name but a few.

With Thomson weddings abroad, wherever you’ve got in mind – they’ll take care of all the plans so you can make your dream a reality.

Your special day

Your wedding is a day you want to remember all your life – so you’ll be concentrating on every single detail. If it all seems a bit daunting to you right now, don’t panic – Thomson will take care of everything for you, which just leaves you to catch your flight, jet off to the amazing location you’ve chosen – and simply say ‘I do’ at the right moment! Just imagine all those great photos and great memories you’ll keep for years to come.

Essential details

You can plan your wedding exactly as you’d like it of course. But most Thomson weddings abroad include all these essential ingredients you’ll need to plan your perfect day:

* A Thomson Weddings Representative who will take care of all the arrangements.
* The all important ceremony, marriage licence, certificate and registrar fees.
* A bouquet for the bride, and a buttonhole for the groom.
* Wedding cake and a sparkling wine toast.

Some free packages may not include things like the cake or flowers – so please check all the details with Thomson before you book.

Your personal Wedding Planner

Once you’ve settled in to your hotel, you’ll have the chance to catch up with your Wedding Planner. You’re in expert hands – dedicated to making sure everything runs smoothly on the big day. They’ll take care of all the little bits and pieces so you can concentrate on enjoying the experience.

Your wedding planner is there to:

* Make sure you’ve got all the documents and arrange exactly when you’d like to get married.
* Walk through all the finer details and arrangements for your wedding day.
* Make sure witnesses are available, whether friends, other hotel guests or staff.
* Arrange your bouquet, table arrangement and cake decoration flowers.
* Offer you any help you need to arrange your wedding reception.

The perfect venue

Everyone has their own dreams of where to tie the knot. Maybe you’re imagining a backdrop of palm tree, white sand and blue sea. Or it might be a stunning mountain setting that’s right for you. With Thomson, you can choose from a huge range of places from the Caribbean to Cyprus, Mexico to Malta. Even a game reserve in Kenya is possible – the options are almost endless. Of course, you’re not just limited to destinations on dry land. We also offer you the option of a Ceremony of Blessing on board one of our cruise ships, with the captain or a senior officer on hand to lead the ceremony.


If your wedding is the most important day of your life – your honeymoon is the most important holiday of your life. At Thomson, perfecting your experience is our top priority. Of course, if you’re getting married abroad, you’re on your honeymoon from the moment the ceremony ends. Otherwise, simply get on the plane, relax with a glass of champagne and let us take care of everything. Wherever you choose to spend your first holiday as husband and wife, we’ve got plenty of ideas to make the experience one to remember.

Renewing your vows

Your wedding was the happiest day of your life, so why not do it all over again? And what better place to relive all those great memories than your dream holiday destination? Thomson can make all your arrangements to make the day just as special as the original, or if you don’t want to go for the full ceremony – why not simply spend some quality time together with a second honeymoon? Just like Thomson’s wedding ceremonies, there are plenty of great destinations to choose from. From the striking scenery of Santorini to a beach ceremony in Cuba – choose the destination that suits you and start looking forward to your time away.
