With the recent flurry of ‘Olympic inspired’ engagements taking place at what has been dubbed ‘Marry Mound’ by Bride’s Magazine aka Park Live, operated by British Airways in the Olympic Park, specialist wedding operator, Planet Holidays & Weddings ( offers up some exciting overseas destinations for couples looking to tie the knot.

Planet Holidays offers overseas weddings in Lapland and Italy for the first time this year, as well as in Cyprus, the Greek Islands, Malta & Gozo, Antigua, Portugal and Croatia, with some of the most stylish, as well as unique venues for couples to have their own gold plated ceremony.

Venue options range from an ‘ice chapel’ or ‘under the midnight sun’ in Lapland, overlooking Lake Garda in a Tuscan castle or a spectacular count’s villa in Italy to luxury yachts, cliff tops, historic buildings and lake and beach locations to name just a few. Planet Holidays can also organise same-sex civil ceremonies at a number of locations in The Algarve.

If couples want to continue the Olympic theme they could opt for a wedding in Greece. Planet Holidays offers civil weddings on 10 Greek Islands including Santorini, one of the most romantic, Rhodes and Crete, two of the most popular islands and Thassos and Amorgos, two of the lesser known islands.

The lead in price for an overseas wedding starts from £500 per couple which includes the venue hire, legal paperwork and marriage certificates.

Planet Holidays can also organise all the little extras a couples may want to include in their special day such as flowers, button holes, photography, DVD, car hire and wedding cake; the whole range of ‘finishing touches’ that can be added to their wedding day, plus ideas for the ‘hen and stag’ do. The operator can also look after all the travel arrangements for the couple and their guests.

Planet Holidays are now taking bookings in all destinations through to 2014.
