A Beautiful Cyprus Wedding:

There is so much to love about the beautiful island of Cyprus. If I were to get married there I would embrace the culture and traditions by having a lovely local Cypriot themed wedding! I would get married at a traditional town hall ceremony and then hire out a beautiful taverna for the evening. Each venue would be decorated with loads of fresh blooms and I would have wooden chairs and tables to complement the venues and rustic design style.

Legal requirements

Nevada marriages are legal and recognised all over the world. Vegas weddings are infamous for being quick and easy in terms of paperwork and there is no waiting period or blood tests required, so weddings on short notice are possible. Your officiant or wedding planner will typically be able to help you and talk you through the legal paperwork process.

 

Some countries do require an Apostille and proof of that the marriage ceremony was performed, which consists of a certified copy of the marriage certificate. Some countries may also require a certified copy of the marriage license as well. Be sure to check with the appropriate agency in your country before leaving for Vegas. It is worth noting that British citizens must provide formal notification of an overseas marriage with the General Register Office before the Nevada wedding and then by depositing a certified copy of their marriage certificate (and possibly an Apostille from the Nevada Secretary of State) when they get home.

 

 

At this time Nevada does not offer same sex marriages. Your chosen minister or religious official must also be certified to perform marriage ceremonies in Nevada, search for approved officiants here.

Happy Thanksgiving!

You Mean The World To Me

Giving thanks was, and still is, the primary reason for ceremonies or celebrations across the world. In North America, the Thanksgiving holiday has focused on an expression of gratitude since ancient times when the Native People of North America held festivals to give thanks for successful harvests and in the hope of a good season ahead. In modern times families continue to give thanks for their blessings, good fortunes and other glad tidings.

 

There are so many great festivities synonymous with Thanksgiving; a great big get-together with your family and friends including a turkey feast with all-the trimmings and enjoying delicious desserts with your nearest and dearest whilst gathered around the TV watching a big game or parade. It’s beginning to sound at lot like Christmas, hey? There are a lot of similarities! So, without suggesting that we full on celebrate this Stateside-holiday today, it’s the intention of thanksgiving that is really appealing and is pleasant to think about today.

Reflecting on the meaning of thanksgiving is a big part of the celebration. It’s a time when families and friends, who might be miles apart throughout the year, spend time together and consider how grateful they are to have each other in their lives.

 

The idea of a designated day for considering all of the joy and happiness we experience is surely a positive one and so without the need for another family-sized feast (a lot of us in the UK already have plenty coming up!) it is maybe a day just to spend some time reflecting on all the great things we enjoy (and sometimes take for granted) and for being hopeful and enthusiastic about our futures.

If you are thinking about getting married in magical Morocco, then this Destination Wedding Guide is a great place to start.

 

And who could be better to bring you all of the inspiration and information you need to start planning your wedding than the talented team of wedding planning experts at Boutique Souk?

 

Boutique Souk:

Marrakech is an exotic choice for a destination wedding, it has become increasingly hip due to the all-year-round sunshine, stunning venues and locations – palaces, riads, spectacular gardens filled with roses, palm trees and olive trees and of course low cost travel making it accessible for you and your guests.

Morocco is right up there on the list of most desirable short-haul destinations. Situated three short hours flight away from the UK, enjoying pleasant year-round temperatures, an abundance of culture to appreciate and ancient cities to explore, Morocco and Marrakech are fantastic places to visit and create a charming destination wedding location.

 

As well as the must-visit maze-like streets and the intense hustle and bustle of the souks of Marrakech, the enchanting Yves Saint Laurent Majorelle Gardens and beautiful Berber Museum are very much worth calling in on.  The spectacular Atlas Mountains are a mere 40 miles away from Marrakech, making them an easy (as well as unforgettable) day trip.

 

Many couples stay on after their wedding and enjoy their honeymoon in Morocco. Some choose to travel around, spending a night in the desert in a tent under the stars mixed with some luxury resort hotels in the mountains or at the coast for some pampering. Boutique Souk is an ABTA registered Travel Agency so we can coordinate honeymoons as well as guest accommodation for the wedding.
