Getting married might seem like a very simple thing, but if you want to do more with your wedding, then you might consider holding the service at an exotic resort, such as a tropical paradise, or on one of the many virtually untouched islands around Australia and New Zealand. The idea of holding the service amidst golden beaches, with soft blue sea at your backs, calls up the most romantic dreams of every engaged couple, but most of the time it seems out of reach and remote. While the majority of couples have to put aside a lot of money to get married in any location, it is possible that saving up a little bit extra could allow you to have a wedding ceremony on a glorious island.
What is the main aim of having the ceremony somewhere like this, rather than in a registry venue in your local town? It might seem that the basis of this is enjoyment, or creating memories that last for a long time. Although any marriage service is something to be celebrated, there is something just a little bit more special about having a wedding on an island, whether it is close to home, or somewhere much further away, like the Caribbean. It adds an element of romance and excitement to the emotional significance of the day.
When you are planning to go to a tropical island for your wedding, there are certain things that you will have to do. Firstly, you will need a passport. Most of the islands around Australia and New Zealand are owned by other nations, or a states in their own right. This means that you will need a valid passport to get in and out of the country. Make sure that all of your guests are also able to get the right paperwork to travel to your island. Secondly, you may need to have vaccinations or blood tests to make sure that you are resistant to illnesses which are not common in Australia or New Zealand. This will often have to be done at least a fortnight before you travel to the Island, so make sure that you are completely up to date with all jabs and inoculations.
You will also need to select the perfect Island for you and your partner. There are plenty of sports-mad islands in the local seas, so if the happy couple are keen on Rugby, or on other sports, they should be able to find an island which has plenty of players. You might also want to go further afield, and look at some of the beaches in the Caribbean. This would be good for fans of cricket, or for anyone who enjoys the sun and the sea. The most important factor is finding an island which suits both the bride and the groom, and one which the guests will be able to travel to easily. When that is all sorted out, the only final arrangement is finding a venue that is willing to conduct the marriage ceremony.
