Amber & Matt ♥ Isla Popa, Panama
Photographer: David Pezzat Photographers
Even when it’s a lovely sunny Monday morning you can’t beat a little escapism and a few stolen moments dreaming of faraway shores…and since we’re talking long distance wanderlust, how does jetting off to the paradise islands of Panama sound? Dreamy yet adventurous right?
So, grab yourself a coffee and take a quick peek at today’s inspiration as I have a feeling that you’ll love the look of idyllic Isla Popa (the second largest island in the beautiful Bocas del Toro Archipelago in north west Panama). Not only a heavenly honeymoon location, the outstanding natural beauty and crystal clear waters of Isla Popa have become a new favourite when it comes to far flung destination weddings. When’s the next flight?
We are pretty darn lucky here at You Mean The World To Me…some incredible destination wedding photographers kindly take time out of their busy schedules to share the beautiful weddings that they’ve photographed across the globe, in order to bring you – the lovely readers – all kinds of wedding pretty in lust-worthy locations to inspire your own wedding day and your jet-set loving hearts.
These talented wedding togs also share our love for the wanderlust of course and whether it’s for work or for pleasure they get to visit some of the dreamiest destinations going. So, that’s where the new Travel Diaries series on the blog comes in; your favourite wedding photographers have the opportunity to invite us into their personal holidays and take a peek at their world-wide adventures. With beautiful imagery (obviously!) they also discuss their top tips and any must-see attractions for when visiting their latest vacation locale.
Having already visited The Unspoilt Algarve, we’ve also enjoyed Exploring Scenic Santorini and been introduced to A Personal Love of Provence. This month Gert Huygaerts helps us to discover The Amazing Amalfi Coast in Italy.
This picture-perfect region is top of many people’s must-visit list (mine included!). Literally bursting with romance it’s no wonder that it is hugely popular for destination weddings and honeymoons. Prepare to fall in love with some of the most idyllic spots that Italy has to offer…
When you’re getting married abroad it’s a good idea to get to the airport early! This will ensure that you’re feeling stress-free and you won’t be rushing around last minute as having more luggage to juggle than normal might mean that it takes you longer to get to check in and move around the airport.
A nice peaceful sit down with a chilled glass of champagne and a bite to eat would be the perfect start to your incredible destination wedding journey wouldn’t it? But where would you find this calming corner when you’re jetting off from one of the UK’s busy airports and will there definitely be some free seats and ones where you can park your wedding dress, suit bag and extra hand luggage next to you without being knocked by hoards of passing travellers?
If you want to kick start your destination wedding, honeymoon or upcoming holiday in a relaxing way with a little extra luxury thrown in for good measure then you should visit BookFHR.com and pre-book a visit to one of the UK’s stylish airport lounges.
When you’re planning a trip away, whether it’s for a mini-break, a long vacation, your destination wedding or even your honeymoon, the best information and ideas for choosing where to go or what to do when you’re there, always come from recommendations.
Hearing about the magic atmosphere of a place first hand is priceless, being given personal advice on where to visit and when is so invaluable and taking a glimpse at the undiscovered beauty of a locality can really help you to decide if this is the perfect holiday hotspot for you.
So that’s where Travel Diaries comes in! Your favourite wedding photographers are stepping away from their day job in the wedding world and instead they are sharing stunning personal snapshots of their global adventures, revealing their most beloved corners of the globe, whilst recommending fun and fascinating things to do when you get there.
This month the super-talented Caroline from BlueCicada Photography shares her personal passion of Provence; having grown up in this picture-postcard part of France she certainly knows the places to go and how to experience Provence like a local.
This week’s destination wedding in Corfu has helped to highlight that one of the great things about getting married abroad (although there are many!) is that it is makes your wedding more than a one day event.
The day’s surrounding your big day will be just as filled with love and laughter as the ceremony day itself. This presents the perfect opportunity to plan great get-togethers with your nearest and dearest…and don’t forget to get as many photographs of these memorable moments as possible!
Katie and Roubesh tied the knot on the breathtakingly beautiful island of Corfu (be sure to take a look at their gorgeous garden wedding). Not only did they hold a sunset cocktail party to welcome their guests to their island wedding but they also took advantage of being surrounded by stunning scenery the day after their nuptials, keeping the celebrations going by heading to the high seas with their loved ones for a day of swimming, snorkelling and sunbathing. Pure bliss!
Penelope Photography was on hand to capture this special time as Katie and Roubesh celebrated being newlyweds with their friends and family. Enjoy the charming Corfu scenery, it sure does make you want to go on holiday!
