Many newspaper pages are currently devoting headlines to statistics such as ‘More than a third of couples have booked a wedding abroad - a 15 per cent hike compared to figures for previous years.’
There is a simple, if not welcome reason for this. Statistics show that the average cost of a UK wedding has soared in recent years and is now close to hitting the £20K mark. This, together with the rising cost of living and pay freezes, means that engaged couples are looking further afield for wedding venues.
The cost savings of getting married abroad are significant; depending on your destination you can save as much as 50% in comparison to a UK based wedding. In these tough economic times, the maths is simple and the benefits of getting married abroad seem to add up too (being able to invite who you want, already being in your honeymoon destination, good weather…).
So, if like many other couples you are looking to get married abroad, don’t hesitate to get in touch with TLC UK . They have a dedicated team of experienced translators that can help you with the translation and legalisation of the documents you need for getting married abroad. They can also do the leg work for you by personally attending the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and any required embassy on your behalf!
