Include the iconic La Sagrada Familia and sporting giant of FC Barcelona and you have one of the world’s most innovative and influential destinations.

It should therefore be no surprise that with 6 million annual visitors Barcelona is Europe’s fifth most visited city.

Tips for planning a wedding abroad in Portugal

With 25% of marriages now taking place abroad and in total 340,000 destination weddings take place each year, getting married abroad is a popular choice. And also the choice for me and my fiance Blake. We got engaged in September 2019 and always knew that we wanted to get married abroad being that the weather is not always great in the UK and we saw it as being more cost effective than the UK. The average wedding in the UK now costs £30,355 which is a crazy amount in my eyes to spend on one day. I know being the budget savvy person I am I can plan our special day, way cheaper abroad.

Now our wedding planning abroad is in full swing I thought I would share some tips with all my readers who may be planning their wedding abroad like me.
