Destination wedding site marryabroad.co.uk this week analysed its website statistics, to find out which world-wide destinations are leading the way for British couples, who are tying the knot overseas this year.
Chosen by George Clooney and his glamorous wife Amal Alamuddin to wed last year, Italy topped the list, with Greece in second place and the British ‘Rock’ of Gibraltar, coming in third.
TOP 10 DESTINATIONS
Charlotte Hand, Co-Founder of MarryAbroad states: “Italy’s original city of love, Venice, is straight out of a movie set, with every corner offering a different romantic setting for couples. However Italy offers so many more options for weddings – for stunning backdrops for the all-important wedding photos, look at Taormina in Sicily, a castle in Tuscany, a masseria – a country house on a country estate, in Puglia or the breath-taking Amalfi Coast.”
Who marries abroad?
MarryAbroad also studied its website user demographics.
Typically, women aged between the ages of 25-34, who live in London and like travel and movies, are interested in marrying overseas.
And men most interested in getting hitched in another country, are also between the ages of 25-34, living in London and like news and sports.
